Morgan is 5 months old!

Today baby Morgan turns 5 months! He is sitting on his own and eating such delicacies as squash and bananas. He is delightful, a good sleeper, easy going and fun. I am not sure whose child we took home from the hospital, but we are not giving him back! (Good thing he looks like us, or we really would wonder).

Nathan is going to school 5 days a week and for the most part loves it. It is a lot of work and I think it is hard for him NOT to be the center of the universe all the time--he plays games like "who wants a Nathan sandwich?" and "Nathan says" and "Nathan kickidy kick ball" -- a little self-absorbed that one... and clearly that indicates he is my child :) Some of the "only child" is wearing off slowly and he is wonderfully fun. He tells jokes and sings are colors fabulous pictures. He is well-behaved and is starting to read -- no complaints there either. He did get a concussion the other day when he did something less than graceful while "flying" over the furniture and had to get a CT scan.... (he gets his athletic ability from his father) - but he was fine... just banged up a bit.

Jas is still "in between" jobs, but has kept busy with the kids and the house and his online-monster-killing-quest-questing and whatever else he does all day :) He is really wonderful with the kids and I am so lucky to have such a great adaptable & patient husband.

As for me, I am gearing up to do a bunch of book signings before the holiday and I have a triathlon in 2 days. With any luck I will survive that. I am also fighting a week-long headache for no good reason. I immediately had the old thyroid checked.... (well not immediately... who does anything immediately any more....) and it is normal -- which means the headache is caused by something more nebulous and I have my first of what will probably be several doctors appts to find out why. And that is why we have COBRA insurance coverage...(that and the fact we have 2 little boys and Jason still insists on playing weekly soccer games...)

That is about all for now - I am off to the doc to be told I do not have a sinus infection and they aren't sure why I still have a headache... fun fun!
