Hi! Sooo last week I didn’t post at all because I started my new job. I’m watching two boys (plus Owen!!) during the week. One kid is 3 years old and the other is 10 months (5 days older than Owen). They’re a handful, but this past week went much better than I was expecting!

In all honesty, Owen is the most demanding out of all three. We are in a new environment and he has to share me with two other kiddos, so he is not liking it to say the least. He cries every time I leave the room and oftentimes fusses just so I can hold him. It’s very frustrating. But, I have faith that he’ll adjust…and I just need to be patient. πŸ™‚

Another thing is, my time with Dan and alone time with Owen is being cut down drastically. I get home after Dan does (around 630ish), we eat dinner, and then pretty soon it is bath/bed time for Owen (between 730 and 8), then bed time for us.

Please be patient with me as I get in a groove and figure out a routine with work, family time, housework, working out, getting presents ready, and posting on this blog. πŸ™‚

So what’s new aside from my new job? Remember our advent calendar I made for December? Yeah, we lasted about 10 days and haven’t done a single activity since then. Not because we don’t have the time, actually it’s because Dan doesn’t want to do it lol :/ I just wish he would’ve told me that he didn’t care about it earlier when I was making it, instead of getting me excited to be doing this and putting in the time and effort to create it. So I guess I’ll make one when Owen’s older and do it then. Dan’s not invited to join us then LOL >:)

Also, now that I am actually getting an income I am able to pay off the rest of the medical bills from having Owen! It’s not much (about $700), but when I only had a few hundred dollars coming in every month it really was a burden to try to pay it off plus home bills and Owen’s necessities. So I am SO happy to be getting this bill taken care of!

Another thing that I’ve been doing lately is crafting. Sewing and making things – I’m sewing Owen a baby blanket for Christmas, we’re making Christmas cards, I have fabric for a throw, and there’s a project I’m getting ideas for, but it’s a secret for now πŸ˜‰ Sewing and crafting is really really soothing for me, but unfortunately that is another thing that has been put on the back burner for now (until I get my schedule figured out).

As for Owen? He is taking steps now and has been slowly learning how to for a while now. I am not saying he’s walking yet, full on, but he can take like 4 steps in a row at times. Very exciting stuff!! He has 7 teeth (four on top, three on bottom), can wave, and clap his hands! His favorite words are “mama”, “dada”, and crying. Oh wait, that’s not a word lol :/

In conclusion, I’m leaving you all with a cute pic of Owen πŸ˜‰
