No Time At All.

It is no wonder I haven’t written a whole blog – or posted pictures – in ages.

I don’t get any free time.  At all.

And without a doubt, the moment I sit down at my computer to write, Ruby wakes up.

I am one step ahead of her this time.  This time, I have her strapped to me in the Ergo, and I’m not going to try to put her down until AFTER I’m finished blogging.

So much has happened, and I haven’t written about any of it.  I don’t even know where to begin.

Mark and Dana got married in Charleston, and it was amazing.  The most beautiful wedding, such a fun time.

The trip was sort of a bust.  Rained every beach day.  Ronan learned how to crawl out of his pack-n-play, and also jumped into a swamp.


Yeah, she’s awake again.

I’m gonna keep writing.

We have, all five of us, been sick since we got back from the wedding.  We are all still sick.

Ronan had a developmental evaluation scheduled for last week, and we rescheduled due to the plague upon our house.  It is rescheduled for next week.

Ruby is still nursing, but not nursing well.  After a ton of research and a lot of questions, we have discovered she has a Maxillary Labial Frenum attachment as well as a mild tongue-tie.  We are in the process of figuring out what the next step is there.

Fuck.  She’s crying now.

Sorry guys.  I can’t be a blogger until she’ll let me be a blogger.

    Ooooh! I hope and pray that you are able to get Ruby all fixed up so she can nurse well! Hang in there mama! The fight will be worth it in the end!

      My first chance to reply to this – thank you SO much Emily. I hope you know how much it helps to hear that… and how much I appreciate it coming from you. Love you to bits.

    When my niece was born, I remember my sister-in-law saying that they discovered some sort of tongue-tie problem on her. From what my SIL said, my niece had to have some sort of minor surgical procedure to correct it.

    Hope all of you are feeling better soon.

    Hey sweetie, finally got a chance to see your blog. I can relate to the no time thing. And I only have one baby. Does she let you sit still when she’s in the ergo? I stared a yoga blog, only a few posts so far because of the same thing you mentioned. I think I’ll have to get up at 4 am if I want to have time to write!!! Good to see you here, a nice change from IG. Take care!! Hope you find some time for yourself. Xxoo

      Hey hon! Thank you so much for stopping by! Haha, the reason I’m replying to this now is because it’s the first chance I’ve had to sit at my computer since you commented. Arg.

      I’ll have to check out your Yoga blog! Hope we both get some time to write in the near future. 😀

    I so know what you mean. It is so hard with 2 kids. I hope you all feel better soon.
