Adventures with Gam & Granddad

My parents are snowbirds. They spend their winters in Florida and the rest of their time in Pennsylvania. It has been like this ever since I started having kids which is nice because otherwise my kids wouldn't really know my parents that well. Actually my parents are the only grandparents(we have 3 sets) that Finley will even really allow to hold her because she sees them so much.

This winter we have been trying to do something fun together every week. So far we have gone to the aquarium, the zoo, Busch Gardens and tomorrow we are going to the bigger aquarium. I love it and so do Aubs and Fin. It breaks up our week and gets us out of the house. My parents pretty much take care of Aubs and I walk around with Finley strapped to my chest. The ergo is Finley's happy place so she rarely gives me any trouble as long as she is in it. I have a feeling that this little "adventures" will be very fond memories for my girls(and me) when they are older.

Here are a few pictures I managed to snap at the zoo.

This guy came right up to the glass and pressed his face against it.

I'm still here


I just wanted to pop in and say hi in case anyone is still stopping by. Life with Finley has been a lot harder than I had expected and I'm still not able to get back to regular blogging right now. She is almost 6 months old and I hear that is usually the end of colic so I will keep my fingers crossed and hope that the constant crying and fussing stops soon. Sleeping is pretty bad too. I had about a week that was good when we started using the sleepsuit, she was only getting up once or twice a night and then going right back down. Now she gets up a ton and most nights I end up trying to get to bed between 9 and 10 in hopes of getting a 3 hour chunk of sleep. Our whole house had been sick this past week too which has made it even worse. Some nights she has been waking about every 30-45 minutes because she been coughing or unable to breath well because of a stuffed up nose. On top of all that, Aubrey isn't in preschool anymore. I pulled her out the first week of December because she was getting sick too much. Anyway- those are my excuses and I really miss blogging and all of my blogging buddies. Hopefully I will be back sooner than later.
