It's been a while since anyone's posted here, and I wanted to put something up to tell everyone that we're still around. We were able to make a couple of large replacements recently, a mattress and b0x springs which had been dead for a couple years now and a range that was malfunctioning. The children have been outside now that the weather is getting nicer, and back to riding bikes. Noah's goal for this year is to get enough practice in to ride his bike without training wheels.
Nicholas has discovered the new daredevil inside himself lately. He's been jumping off of anything that he can possibly climb on top of, including furniture, (bunk bed) ladders, new mattresses, etc. He accidentally did a belly-flop into the floor a couple days ago when the couch was pulled away from the wall to clean underneath; thankfully, he didn't land on anything that could hurt him.
Alexander is now able to sleep through most of the evening. Melissa is able to sleep until about 3 to 4 AM in the morning, and the baby has been going to bed around 8 to 9 PM, which is a pretty solid stretch of sleeping. Of course, this may change once he begins teething.
Melissa has been able to get out of the house a bit more. She was at lunch and at the movies on the weekend. Dad and the kids were at home, both outside and inside.
As far as I go, I'm still trying to make it until the end of the semester at Wayne State. The latest class has been difficult at best. Thankfully, spring break is coming; I have a test the week afterward, though. Looking forward to May, and the end of the semester and beginning of (hopefully) some nice weather. Happy late winter!
