Life on the homefront

Well, Travis made it home today. Yay!! The kids and I were super excited to see him. The kids because they have missed him so much. Me because I really need a break from the kids! Funny to think that since I spend SO much time at home. ;)

Actually I think the stress level is getting to me. I had some eczema break out on my neck about a month ago & it is getting worse and worse as time goes by. I think it's getting worse because of the stress. My sister only gets eczema when she's stressed out, so that's why I'm thinking it's stress related.

Caleb has now figured out not only how to get up on all fours & rock back and forth, but he has also moved one knee forward and then nose dived. When I picked him up at Laura's today (daycare) he was on the floor and playing. Just out of the corner of my eye I caught him up on all fours & I'm pretty sure he actually got each knee one movement forward before nosediving. I am SO not ready for him to be crawling!! I can't even believe he's that old already! Tonight he was down on the floor doing his army crawl & we had to put the baby gate across the stairs because he worked his way all the way over there just so he could play with Nash's legos.

And in other news...my school laptop crashed today. That was a fabulous end to 2 days of serious IT stress!! Sending it out tomorrow with the hopes it will be back by Monday! On the bright side, the end of the term is today & grades must be submitted tomorrow. So, I'm almost past that headache (and only have 1 more time left to go through it this school year)!

Anyway, hope you have a great week!

Perhaps the eczema is worsened by Caleb's increased mobility! :) I'm so glad Travis got home safely. I hope you get a little down time while he's here.
