Apologies for the radio silence (since I know y'all check my site obsessively).  Jason had another major allergic reaction, which started last Sunday and kept up all last week.  After three different steroids, he's finally doing better and back to work.  We have an appointment to see an allergist in a month to try to start see if we can figure out what triggers the reactions and how to stop/lessen them.  He hadn't had one in a year, so we've made some progress.

So between him and Aggie and Baby 2, I've been wiped.  It wasn't a bad week, just tiring.  Plus, I had some unemployment drama, which I think has been resolved (fingers crossed).

A couple things of note - Aggie is now starting to walk unassisted.  She can only do a couple steps at a time, but I'm just so darn proud.  I know, I know, at some point in the future, I will long for the days of crawling, but for now, I'm excited to see her progress and know that I stand a chance of not having to carry both her and her sister in my arms at the same time.  Who am I kidding? That'll still happen even when Aggie is champion walker, but at least it won't be absolutely necessary.

Speaking of baby sister, she's getting so big and has moved into my rib cage, occasionally compressing my diaphragm and stomach, leaving me out of breath and nauseated.  And prone to run-on sentences.

On Friday, I was able to take care of Aggie and a friend's 20 month old for three and a half hours ALL BY MYSELF!!!!  Granted, all we did was hang out and go to the park (and eat crackers and spill water), but no one was injured or anything.  Again, signs I might stand a chance at being a mom of two and all three of us surviving.

And (!!!) Jason scheduled his Vasectomy!  Hallelujah!

This morning, during an period of insomnia, I ordered some lovely iron-ons from Etsy (Applique Heaven - no false advertising there).  I have a ton of plain onesies (thanks, Hilleri!) and plan to decorate some for me and some for a friend.  The pic is of one I got for me (isn't that the raddest?!?). Can't wait to get my craft on!
