A free minute to blog

I'm finally getting a free minute to blog. Things have been crazy around here. Baby Coco is taking up almost every minute of my time. Or maybe I'm letting her, I just can't seem to put her down. I finally bought a m*by and I am loving it. My arms are finally free. I wish I would have had one 7 kids ago.

We are having some formula problems. We switched her to soy when she seemed to not be tolerating the regular formula (we had to do this with Sissy and should of with Buster) but since then she hasn't been able to tolerate anything else. Right now we're doing a mixture. We have an appointment with the Dr. next week. I'm starting to wonder if there isn't something else going on.

The holidays were rough around here. Thanksgiving is the worst holiday for Tator. I'm not sure why, but it went down hill from there. Her birthday, holidays, new sibling, and unexpected snow days all are throwing her for a loop. Her rage isn't so bad, just a lot of defiance. A lot of pushing everyone away. And it's sad to say but it's working, none of her siblings want to be around her.

Duckie is continuing to go to school full time, but his work has slowed down. Him and Buc have started a band with 2 other guys and spend most of Saturday jamming in our rec room. Talk about loud! I think its time they find a new place to practice. It's loud enough around here.

Buc had another appointment this week with his neurologist. We have decided to change his migraine medicine. For those of you who are not regular followers he suffers from confusional migraines. You can read about it here. He has not had a confusional one in a long time but is still having more headaches then he should on this medicine. The other has some side effects that worry me so I'm praying this is the right choice.

We have started to teach Sissy to sign. I don't know if I've ever mentioned it before but developmentally she did everything slow. From rolling over to walking everything seemed to be about 6 months behind. She is still not saying any words except mom and dad so we decided to start to teach her to sign. She's doing very well with it. So of us are consistent with it, others of us just think that because she points to something and screams until we give it to her she's just spoiled. They may be right but teaching her to sign isn't going to hurt anything.

I am dreaming of Orlando. I almost chickened out, the thought of leaving the baby and flying for the first time both were enough to make me want to stay here in my own little world. But I can't. I HAVE TO GO! I NEED TO GO!  I need to meet up with ladies that have been there. So I bought my ticket and there is no going back now. I'm even going a day early.

I hope to be back blogging regularly very soon. Right now I'm just trying to keep my head above water, everyone bathed regularly, homeschool caught up, clean clothes on everyone and food on the table. Actually I'd just like to get the food made. At this point I don't care where they eat it.

Oh yea, I almost forgot. We have a contractor lined up to finish our house. Hopefully we'll be able to move in by this summer. Yay!!!!!
