29 is officially postponed

I love these two little stinkers.
But they are both pretty sick. So this year my birthday is officially postponed. We voted unanimously to postpone Valentines day as well. I am drained. It has been a long week. There is no end in sight to this rotten cold. Such is life as a parent, I know.
But just because I am postponing does not mean you have to postpone my birthday...
For example - my mom and dad made me a yummy early birthday dinner today.
What can you do you ask. Well, maybe you can leave a comment. Maybe I can get to 29 comments for my 29th birthday. I have my doubts. Come on, prove me wrong!
Everyone always does that post on their blog. Asking all those blog lurkers and stalkers to out themselves. We all lurk! I know I am quite guilty of it.
But I have been too scared to do that post. Scared that no one will actually comment. I have run into a few people who tell me they look at my blog all the time. I had no idea. But it was so nice to know that someone else was looking. I will admit I was flattered and quite happy about it! So I think I finally have the courage to do it. I am asking everyone who looks at my little blog to let me know you are out there. And if you still aren't up to leaving a comment email me. I just want to know you are out there!
Okay, this is me doing it. This is me hitting publish post. In just a minute... Okay for real this time... Don't let me down fellow bloggers!

Laundry, dishes, vacuuming, renovations, phone calls, organizing, cooking, toys, birthdays, church, friends, sewing, preschool, valentines day. I just can't keep up with it all lately. I can't even manage to get in a shower everyday. And exercising, what's that?
And now my whole house is sick. Again. So it will get even more behind.
Sick kids sucks.
I want so badly to make them feel better.
Roman told me this morning in such a sad voice "mom I don't want to be sick anymore".
His face is pale and his eyes are red. He looks like a zombie.
He was so sad he couldn't go to preschool today.
And Finn is just starting with the cough Roman has had for three days.
And my throat and ears hurt.
So what is worse that sick kids - being sick with sick kids.
And Brad is at work sick.
What makes me so mad is that I know exactly where this round of the horrific cold and flu came from. I know where it came from and when. And it shouldn't have come at all. We should not have had to be where the cold was. And it should not have come home to my house. And now my week sucks because of it.
But what can you do. Such is life.
At least these two kings make it worth it.
The king of crazy.
And the king of chub.
I love Roman. He wanted a "prown". So I made him one. And while I was making it he asked if I could make Finn one too. He's my baby and he needs a prown with me.
A few days ago Brad asked Romes if Finn was our baby. No dad, he is my baby.
I hope he always loves his brother this much.

five months

At five months Finn
- finally decided rolling over is a good thing. No interest whatsoever in rolling back off his tummy.
- likes to be in the jolly jumper, but doesn't jump at all. Just hangs there and chews on the front. So different from Roman who was a bouncing machine at this age.
- Likes to be in his bumbo.
- Loves loves loves to chew on anything.
- Is totally fascinated by his hands.
- Likes to smile at himself in the mirror.
- Blows little drool bubbles.
- Gives his best smiles, chit chat, and giggles to daddy.
- Likes mommy to put him to sleep.

- Likes to be carried in a sling.
- Watches mommy make dinner from his bouncy chair and kicks up a storm in it.
- Travels well in the car and sleeps good in his car seat.
- Still doesn't have a defined nap schedule. Always a morning nap. Sometimes a good afternoon nap and no evening nap. Sometimes a short afternoon and a short evening nap.
- Finally goes to bed earlier in the evening, but only if mommy holds him. I watch a lot of tv from 9-10 with a sleeping baby!
