1. My baby is getting his one year molars.  Frozen bagels, work like magic. 2. I had my first birthday without my family this past Sunday.  It was uneventful.  I did get some amazing gifts and these yummy cupcakes. And I got a date night with Lew a couple days before.  So...I guess it was good. 3. My first baby started his new school on Monday.  I love it.  Like the teacher is so amazing.  Although, hello cold.  Taking both boys in and out of the car with huge coats on, not fun.  He had a great first day, made a turkey, practiced his name and played with new friends.
Transitioning has been hard. Can I be a baby and say it has been the hardest on me?  Because it feels that way.  As great as this move is for us, its difficult all at the same time.  Lew works really long hours, so we miss him a ton. I am out on my own, venturing around town and it can be lonely.
Bright side...my sister has a business trip planned for the beginning of December and I am going to go visit her after Christmas.  She's amazing.  Not sure what I would do without her.
Now, time to get cracking on Will's Christmas stocking.  Yes.  I am making the impossible stocking, that took my girl friend a year to complete.  I have 42 days.  Wish me luck.

I can imagine this move being hard on you. You're taking care of two boys, starting a new life, and not getting to see your hubby as much as you would like... Your blog friends are here if you need 'em :)

Just found your blog and I feel like I'm about to relate to you! We are going to be moving with a little one in a year and my husband will have long hours as well. I'm here to vent if you need to!

Change is always hard...and I know if we moved away from my in-laws right now with the two little boys...well I would be super sad!

a. happy belated birthday!!

b. that's not you being a baby friend, this is hardest on you. it's bc we are the mom and the wife first. and we worry about them. we take care of them. and then somewhere along the way we realize this is about us too. and it's not easy.

hang in there mama - baby steps.

I think it's harder for us parents to deal with change. No doubt.

Glad the school is working out and the boys are doing so well.
