Today was one of those days where I wish I had easy access to Mason's baby pics because Miss Sadie has followed in her brother's footsteps in falling asleep while playing.  It was too cute.  She ought to be exhausted tonight because she has accomplished SO much in this ONE day!  Today she signed "more" and "please" to me!  She had been signing more every now and then but not on a regular basis and today that reveresed and she even threw in another sign.  All it took was some frozen custard from Cheeseburger Bobby's to pursuade a regular sign!  She also said, "bye bye" tonight to Lauren.  It was prompted, but she did say it.  Lastly, she pulled herself up to a standing position several times today, too.  She had done that, too, but only a time or two.

I, too, have been exhausted of late because the adjustment from Daddy being here all the time to Daddy being gone in an instant's time has taken a toll on the littlest man of the house.  Poor Mason will not give me a moment's peace.  He is having some serious Daddy withdrawals/abandonment issues as I have personally "diagnosed."  He has no problem staying within our normal routine and going to school, soccer, etc, but he doesn't want me out of sight other wise.  He has given me directions and gone over them repeatedly every car ride as to how I am to get out and go around the front of the car so he can see me before I get him out.  He will not have me getting gas without the window down because he can't see me, and he didn't even want me to go out to eat tonight and leave him with his Paw Paw and Grammie.  I don't know what to do and it is getting incredibly hard for me to keep from blowing up with every waking minute spent in front of and entertaining him.  Not to mention that he still gets up at least one time a night in the middle of the night with some sort of a need.  I can't help but long for a normal life and situation, too, but I guess normal is relative.

So, here's to our crazy, yet somehow perfect and so incredibly PROUD life we live!
