I Miss You Guys!

I wanted to say I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I haven't been visiting as many of your blogs as often as I had been. I was feeling like a part of many of your families because I was reading stories and seeing pictures on your blogs every week. I fell off the wagon in July when I was HUGE pregnant and only had time to get online and set things up for my Baby Bash. Then I had my sweet baby girl and it has taken time to adjust to being a family of 4 while keeping up my blog at the same time.

I used to be really good at responding to all comments, but I've been slacking there too. AOL only lets you have 1000 emails in your inbox and then it stops sending them so I had to set up a yahoo account for my blog comments to go to. As you can imagine, I have about 35,000 in there right now because of giveaway entries. I do delete them regularly, but I still don't get to all of the comments on my personal posts. I promise to start being better at logging onto my twoofakind868@yahoo.com account more often to respond to comments, but remember that I used to send them from twoofakind868@aol.com so these might go to your spam.

I'm also slacking on posts telling you what is going on with us. I'll tell you a little about our life right now and I promise to visit your blogs more often.

Isabella is 6 weeks old today. I'm not really sure where these past weeks have gone and it brings a tear to my eye to think about how fast she's growing. She has been sleeping through the night for a few weeks now and is so calm(DEFINATELY different than Evan was). She goes to bed at 10:30 and wakes up to eat about 7:00 and then goes back down until about 9:00 or so. Here is a picture that I snapped of her today. I want to thank Jen for sending me a new white bow when she heard that I had lost my other one!
Photobucket

Evan is in my Wordless Wednesday post. I took that picture this weekend. We are almost done with potty training! I REALLY decided to start doing it just two days ago and he's now telling me when he has to go and we've only had one accident today. He loves his little sister to pieces and can't give her enough hugs and kisses.

Hubby and I are doing great! We're just loving every minute that we have with our babies. I started a cake decorating class last Thursday and I am so excited about it. Last week we only learned what the different tools did, so there was nothing to post. I am making my first cake tonight and I'll decorate it in class tomorrow. I will definitely post a picture no matter how horrible it turns out!

I am excited to start reading everyone's blogs again because I have REALLY missed you guys(or as we'd say here-I've missed ya'll)!!

Dee i will be honest and say this is the first time I have felt like I have "seen" Isabella Seems like every picture before today I couldn't get a good look! She is adorable! Can Evan come give Owen some encouragement? Owen knows what the potty is for but doesn't want to use it. I ask him if he want's too and he just says "No, No Potty" and if I try to encourage him by not doing a diaper he runs and brings me one. I guess he just isn't ready.. I think it's more willing, I think he's ready. Glad things are going well for you guys and Bella is sleeping through the night!

gahome2mom said...

We love her. :) Stay happy and healthy.

Jennifer Leigh said...

She's so big! Wow really? 6 weeks have passed.

I'm dying to see your cake!

Baba said...

Oh she is so beautiful! Babies always come first.

Beth said...

Isabella is beautiful and I'm amazed that a new mommy with a gazillion giveaways has time to even post anything else! Your doing wonderful! I used to write on someone else's blog all the time and not just giveaways...every post she had but she never once talked to me and I guess I never thought of her being so overwhelmed with giveaways there was no time for personal comments! Thanks for the light bulb moment!

Just Add Walter said...

Isabella is the cutest baby ever!! Sometimes life can get so busy and go by so quickly

S Club Mama said...

So excited to see your cake. Isabella is adorable!! Isaac is almost 10 weeks old; times goes by so fast. But she sleeps through the night???? Jealous. He goes down around 9 and gets up at 12 and then at 5 again. Lucky.

FranticMommy said...

What a sweet baby!

April said...

Girl, many times I've wondered how in the world you were keeping up with your blog. Abby is 3 weeks old and though she is a good girl, she is still a lot of work. I think you're doing great at keeping it all together.

shopannies said...

Dee we understand with two little ones life becomes super busy. We miss you to but we know that you will be able to come back when you find time

The Howard's said...

She is beautiful!

kimert said...

Such a doll baby!!!! :)

Melissa said...

I am amazed you have been around as much as you have with a brand new baby! Congrats Momma, pretty little girl!

Nurse Mommy said...

she is beautiful!

Angie Marion said...

I feel the same way! Football practice and games are taking up tons of time, then last week we lost my Grandfather. shew... I just cleared out my inbox of unreads (mostly) but still have 900+ some to go through. grrr!

On another note, the baby girl is darling! Enjoy your time with her - it goes by too fast!

Shop with Me Mama said...

So glad to hear that you are all doing great!!! Your daughter is sooo adorable! I understand how busy you must be. Take care hon :)

The Jacobsen Family! said...

Wow, I think she looks so much like Evan in this picture! She's adorable! Glad you are all doing well. I've been out of touch lately too. It's hard to keep up with everything when you're a mom! Can't wait to see that cake picture and hopefully you'll pass on some tips!!!

Vicki said...

First of all, congrats, secondly, she is BEAUTIFUL!

Chawksgirl4ever said...

awww your being to hard on yourself i just had my son 5 months ago and im still trying to catch up in everything.i love the white bow!

Lori said...

Oh my gosh! Has it already been six weeks? She's adorable and she looks so camera ready for reviews. Get rest and stay sane!

Oh, and can I use the newborn excuse even though my son is 18 months?

Jennifer said...

She is absolutely beautiful!!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Isabella is SUPER cute! I love her little pink outfit! I'm glad the potty training is going well...you are lucky...my boys took forever to potty train! I can't to see how your first cake turns out!

mitch1066 said...

May i suggest a gmail account.It has unlimited storage and you can set it up so the mail goes in separate folders for contest entries etc.

Mighty M said...

You will catch up soon enough, you have been so busy! And even if you don't , no big deal!! ;-)

Brassy said...

So much hair! My Baby H (who is almost 4 months old now) has a lot of hair, too. Unfortunately, she's developed a bald spot on the back of her head! :(

And I totally agree with Mitch1066 above. Gmail rocks, and the filters are easy to use.

The Allen Family said...

She is so cute!! And I just want to know how you got her to sleep so well?! My almost 3 month old barely sleeps 4 hours at night before waking. Sheesh.

BabeeLove said...

Wonderful update, we all understand the time limitations that our family gives us with blogging and the other crap like cleaning. So glad that you took the time with your family. No need to apologize. I see you are handling things fine and sure you continue to do so. Have fun! I agree with cherishing every moment, because it does fly fast!

Felicia said...

I am amazed that you are doing all that you are doing! Seriously! No need for apologies at all... and then on top of that you are going to learn cake decorating! :)

Haasiegirl said...

I am not sure i would ever see through my email if i put contest entries in there toO!

Abby said...

I am so jealous of that sleep schedule. As you know, G-man was not a good sleeper for soooo long! You are a lucky mom! I haven't visit many blogs lately either since I have been busy with jury duty during the day and writing reviews at night. I hope to do better now!

Melinda said...

take your time, get to know your newest addition and we'll be here when you get back

Chelle said...

Aw, Dee, she is sooo precious! And that's amazing she's sleeping sooo well! Madelyn is so different than Bella, too. Madelyn is def a lot calmer and relaxed--and a MUCH better sleeper!

Believe me--I understand how hard it is. Just know that we understand and of course miss you, too!

But enjoy the time while she's little...I know I'm soaking in every minute of little Madelyn :)

Julia said...

she's a doll!!

i feel like you... we are in the middle of a big move and ihaven't been visiting my favorite blogs as often and i feel like i'm missing out on my friends' lives!! it's so sad. but we're always here! ;)

Rose ~ RedNeckWitch~ said...

Everything will fall into a nice routine soon. It's all still kinda', sorta' new.
She's a gorgeous little one, sooo pretty!

You should check into a gmail account, because you can filter the income e-mails into different folders rather easily.

Best of wishes!
