The balancing act of taking care of Alex along with giving Bella and Zach the full attention they deserve is a balancing act. Most of it depends on Alex's mood and temperament for the morning and evening when the kids are not at school. It has even gotten to the point where this morning when repeatedly asking Bella to go to the family room to play before school, I got a 3 second AGGHHH and hand motion as she walked out of the door. Chris and I busted up laughing once she was gone.
During the day, Alex and I do great. Each day he is more and more alert, unless he just wants to be lazy; like yesterday where he slept all day and only woke up to eat...which allowed me to bum around and watch long awaited DVR'd shows. And with all of that eating and sleeping you get what becomes a little chunk, which I LOVE! All of that loose skin has quickly turned into rolls that are precious.
Nana and Papi came in from Florida over Labor Day weekend. They entertained Bella and Zach to the fullest potential and Nana got to cuddle with Alex for hours. We also celebrated Zach's second birthday with the family with two of his favorite things...meat from Rudy's BBQ and jumping at Monkey Joes. We all had a blast and enjoyed the awesome company!!!
