We've had a busy week, and everyone is surviving ;)

L's schedule has her waking between 2 and 3AM and staying awake until 6 or 7AM, after going to sleep around 10. While I appreciate the 10 - 2 schedule, I wish she would return to sleep after eating at 2 instead of staying awake and grazing for 4 more hours. Thankfully, DH is able to feed the boys breakfast and they're pretty good about playing together so I can sleep from 7 to 10 with L, otherwise I'd be a complete zombie. I know it'll change again soon, so I'm just waiting it out.

Monday I had my spa visit.

Tuesday my cleaning lady came to help me catch up. She's due with her first in about a month, so I won't be seeing her again. I felt guilty having her come in and clean, but she said she was happy to do it. I'm trying to figure out if I should find different cleaning help, or work harder at doing it myself. Question is still up in the air.

Wednesday my friend and her 1 year old came to visit. (why I had to have my cleaning lady come) We had a very nice visit and her baby is a doll.

Thursday I took L for her 6 week checkup. She weighs 8lb 11oz, which puts her in the 10-25% -- consistent with my boys. Her length and head circumference puts her in the 50%. She's perfectly fine and doesn't have to go back until 4 months. Mid-morning, a friend of Colin's, his mom and younger brother came over for a pool date. Lovely family, and hopefully we'll do more with them as I like her, and her boys.

Today I'm taking the kids for a professional portrait -- L's first. Not sure how it'll go or how L will do -- but I'm taking a "whatever" attitude about it. Even if I just get a nice portrait of the boys I'll be happy.

Nothing on the calendar for tomorrow, and not sure what DH wants to do on Sunday for Father's Day (gee, I should probably ask!)

The boys start zoo camp next week -- and I know there will be much angst as they will have to leave the house around 7AM -- extremely early for both of them. Thankfully, DH will drop them off in the morning and then L&I will pick them up at noon.

I need to figure out some meals, make sure I do laundry, and nurse the babe. Not too bad, really. I also need to go through the pile of mail on the dining room table and deal with the things that need action.

    Well, sounds like yer "movin' right along" there Melanie. You sound a little melancholy - hope that's just me hearing it - no matter, I'm keeping you in my prayers anyhow.
