I'm Behind

Have you ever gotten so far behind on a project that it just keeps getting moved to the back burner because it's easier to ignore it than it is to actually get caught up? That's how I've felt about this blog lately. There were so many things I had wanted to write about that I kept putting it off because it would take more time to type about the things I wanted to share than I had time to spend on typing. And the more I put it off, the more things there were to write about. I have finally realized that I just need to move forward on this, and forget about the past things I didn't have time for. Even so, here are a few updates.

So, in the past couple of months I went back to work at school with a new group of fifth graders. This year's students are more of a challenge than last year's students, so that's taking more of my time. Not to mention that we have a wonderful and loveable little guy taking up our time now, too. It makes for a busy day- going to work, picking up Malachi, getting him fed and in bed, and then finally eating ourselves (somewhere around 8pm). Then I usually have an hour or so to get things cleaned up, and maybe get one task done, and it's to bed I go. It's taking some adjusting, but I know I'll find a good rhythm sometime soon.

Malachi is growing like a weed! I have no idea how much he weighs, but he's wearing 6-9 mo. pants now, even though he still fits in 3-6 mo. shirts. He just has such long legs! He has so many teeth, too! He's currently got 6, and at least 2 more close behind (but I suspect there are more than that as I see the telling sign of bumps on his gums). This continues to surprise me. He's eating cereal and other vegetables these days- and he loves it all. He's also started eating in his high chair in the last week, which is very fun!

My biggest frustration has been my computer. Part of the reason I wasn't updating on here is because my computer broke down mid-way through September. It took a couple of weeks to get it back in working order, and I'm still trying to get everything back to the way it was. My super-star computer genius of a dad is responsible for getting it all fixed up for me. Thanks Dad!

Well, I better stop for now, as this is getting to be an enormous post. I have been "tagged" by two other bloggers in the last couple of weeks, so I'll also need to get that post on here soon. Plus I know some of you aren't too happy about the lack of pictures lately. I'll try to get on that, too! Until then...!

September came and went... Sarah was back to school... John had a little relief from some pressures at work... Malachi recovered from his stomach bug and an additional cold...

Here are a couple of new pictures from Malachi. He has sat in his high chair a couple of times. The "cute as a bug" outfit is from Great Aunt Donna.
