It's almost midnight. Have GOT to get to bed. Just wanted to give a quick update on everyone:
me: I was in Sacramento for the last few days for another Women's Council State Meeting, where I had to do some public speaking. I have 4 houses in escrow and wrote another offer tonight. I think the real estate market (at least here in Marin) is picking up!
Kaitlyn: is finally better after 2 weeks of being sick. She seemed to be back to her cheerful self today (after weeks of whining and crying). For the first time she actually ate some of her dinner neatly! (she has to be the messiest eater of all times). She lost close to 2 pounds over the last 2 weeks, but seemed to eat a lot tonight finally.
Quinn: Boy, he's one sensitive little guy. 2 nights last week I had 2.5 hours of crying in the middle of the night. It might be teething, as I can see a little of his bottom teeth finally coming in. He's still quite delayed. He is FINALLY sitting up on his own (but we have to get him to sitting). He will also now allow us to leave him on his belly for a while, but he can't seem to roll over any more in any direction. He is able to push himself around in a circle while on his belly, (I think he's trying to roll, but get's his arms stuck). He isn't eating great, but I have to say, when he does want to eat solids, it's soooo amazing to watch him open his mouth. That's something that is totally new to me! His milk/formula intake has gone way down (I'm hoping it's just cause he was sick the last 2 weeks). we'll see. But I do have to say, when he's not crying, he's the happiest, cutest giggly smiley little guy ever! Just wish he wasn't such an "extreme" little man. Boy can he cry and drive his mama a bit loco!
On a side note, I'm in total shock, as one of my micro preemie blog mom members has been in the news with a shockingly awful news story. I'm not going to mention the details here, as this is a criminal case, but for those of you who know what I'm talking about, I at least had to blog that I'm in shock, saddened and just speechless. I know this mom. She's been a member of my group for a long time and has been a very active participant.
I do believe that this is a mental illness situation. But it's heartbreakingly sad for her children and her husband.
When I feel I can, (as I'm sure this is going to be a very public story) I'll post the link. In the meantime, for those of you who know what I'm talking about, just know I'm in shock and am trying to decide what to do about it for the groups sake.
Hug and love your children! Please be good to them!
