To make my mom happy

Every time I see my mom she tells me to either post more or to post that I'm done blogging. I'm kind of over blogging. Let's be honest, I don't really have that much time to sit at the computer and write. Yes I know there are plenty of moms that do and that's great! As soon as Lucas sees my computer he runs over and starts pressing buttons or trying to close it. I could stay up after he goes to bed, but he goes to bed around 8:45 and darn I want to go to bed too. I'm going to give this blogging thing another try and reevaluate at the beginning of the year. If I'm not posting more by then, I will write my farewell blog.

So lets see, what has happened since my last post? Well we had Halloween. Lucas was a monkey and a very cute one at that. We only took him to 4 houses, but he doesn't eat candy and we didn't need the candy in our house. I'm still doing Weight Watchers, albeit not as well as I was. I'm currently losing very slowly/maintaining. I'm not a weight were I just want to maintain so I'm trying to find the motivation again. Lucas is talking more. Still not a lot of understandable words, but he's working on it. He has an odd way of saying thank you, BUT he's saying it. We just make sure that he hears us using please and thank you often. Snoopy is doing great. He's finally accepted that Lucas is sticking around and is more playful with him. Lucas absolutely adores Snoop. He runs to him in the morning to give him hugs. Okay, every time Lucas sees him he runs to give him hugs. They often both stare out the front door when we have it open and it's so incredibly sweet.

Aidan's Book Corner is doing amazingly well. We've stopped receiving donations sent directly to us, but Barnes and Nobles of Carmel and Noblesville both picked up the program as their charity this holiday season. When a customer buys a book, the cashier asks if they want to donate. I think, combined, we have over 200 books so far! We're waiting to hear from a couple of companies as to whether they will donate money to help keep the program alive. I've taken the cart around the NICU several times and it's so rewarding every time I see a smile on the faces of the parents when they pick out a book.

Lets see, lets there anything else I'm forgetting? Probably, but that pretty much sums up what's been happening over here.

I love you Aidan Christopher and Lucas Alexander!
