It's 5:06 and both of the boys are sleeping... both with in arms reach.

Currently, life is peaceful.

It seems like with the passing of August life moves on. We all (we being everyone here at our house) waited for with anticipation and excitement for a long 9 months for August. Now, it's almost over. August is over and it's time to move on. On to life with two kids. How do people do this and consider it normal? What will the next 9 months bring? How different will this October be from last?

Life will never be the same, but infinity better. At least it's easy to think so when both of the boys are sleeping.

16 bowls of cereal

Last night I sat in Chandler's room for a good long time. Brandon usually comes in and says, "Yeah, he's cute," then leaves. Last night was not different. It's been a year that we've been discussing the idea of welcoming a new life into our lives. Our perfect little life... It's an odd thing. We spend a long time talking, planning, growing and then one day (one week and 2 days from today) everything changes. Chandler is not ready. Is that me projecting?

Last night I had a dream.. a dream in which I was no longer pregnant. Of course in my dream my tummy was beautiful and flat and I was skinny everywhere. When in reality it will take months to get there. You know how after your pregnant, you wear that fleshy suit for a few months.. yuck.
Then, this morning, to insure I will be fabulous and skinny again soon, I ate 16 bowls of cereal. Yum.
