I wanted to answer some of the questions I get on a weekly basis.
“How is Mera handling Jesse being gone?” Well, she moans a bit but it is hard to really tell what Mera is thinking. She is getting treated extra special these days and actually sits at our feet every time we go outside. She also gets extra love, extra treats, and leftovers off the plates on special nights. I am sure she is wondering why all the special attention. While Gress was in the bathtub the other night, I asked him when he was going to start washing himself and he said, “when Mera dies.” That might be a while.
What do we do during the week? Well, we go to the park, we go on walks, we go to Oatland Island (a wildlife refuge with lots of animals) and they have a program where they do crafts and we usually have picnic lunches with Gress’ buddies, we go to the Library for storytime, Gress runs around like a maniac with the neighborhood boys (who are all so sweet to Gress treating him like one of the gang) while playing guns or sword fighting or deciding who is going to hold their new puppy, Gress is now taking swim lessons twice a week (which he loves but doesn’t want to go back :)…….. I realize now why I am so tired all the time. I am tired just reading this.
And how is Mcree and life with a new one. It is awesome. This little guy is so full of life and is such a joy to be around. He is happy which makes up for all the spitting up he does. He loves Gress and Gress loves being with him. Mcree is trying to find his thumb to suck but hasn’t quite figured that all out yet. He has started grabbing toys and loves cuddling with his blankies. He only wakes up once in the night which (crossing my fingers) hopefully will be short lived. He is a chunk and is outgrowing his 6 month clothing. He is a heavy load to cary at times..which makes me think I should just start doing squats while holding him and call that my exercise for the day.
So what’s next? Right now I am just trying to savor this sweet time with the boys. I haven’t figured out how work will play out but trusting that God is managing that one.
Do we love where we live? We love Savannah and all the quaintness it shares. And lots of opportunities to make a difference in this city.
How is crossfit going? Hmmmmmmmm. It’s not, but soon. I tried to do a pull up the other day (remember when I could do 50+ pull ups?) and failed miserably. Not only that, my abs ache terribly from just the effort it took to try. PATHETIC! I keep saying once this then that. Today it was once the girl scout cookies are gone then we will get back on track…only to then find our sweet girl scout neighbor selling them on the corner and owning up to our neighborly duty to buy more (6 more boxes to be exact). Then there was the kids selling candy bars. Where is the will power?
And, we are an Aunt and Uncle again. Welcome to the world Layla!! We can’t wait to meet you!
