It's been awhile...

It's been a while since I got on here and did the blogging thing. It's been a bit mental at home lately. My head is all over the place!

Baby #3 is going to be here in 3 weeks (yesterday). That's kinda scary, I don't know that I'm ready to do this all again. (Of course I am. Too late now, anyway! LOL)

I am really struggling to cope with the boys by myself at the moment. I am feeling really overwhelmed and just not up to it. So, I have enrolled them in Childcare. That needed to be underlined because I always thought I'd never do that..... Shock horror..... Send my children to someone else to deal with. But, I really think we will all benefit from it. I need time alone and they need other people to give them attention and talk to and get used to. Hunter especially will benefit from it. Making friends, learning new things. Levi, I really feel guilty about though, He's so young! He looks so much older than he is because he's tall and solid, but he's just a baby. Oh, stop it. He'll be fine! *sob*
I have enrolled them for 2 days a week to start. I think we'll do that for the next 3-4 weeks, then drop back to one day. Frankly I don't think I could afford more than that!

The other thing that's been happening is Hunter's hearing test today. I have been a bit concerned about his speech, only because he jibbers alot sometimes and hasn't gotten much clearer. We went to audiology this morning and the doctor(?) says there's alot of either wax or fluid around the ear drum. She reffered us to an ear, throat, nose specialist to get that cleaned out and see if that helps.
Yay, results!
Well, you would think so wouldn't you? No such luck. Apparently by going public it may take 18 months to be seen!!!! - Just to clean the wax out!
SO I have to call and find out how much it will cost me to just take him in there and pay for it or consider Private health insurance.

That and everything with B is really hard at the moment and I am kind of burying myself in crafty things so I don't have time to think about any of it. I am feeling a bit like I will explode at any second, and I am being horrible to everyone. Let's hope I can get over this slump and get on with it all.

Following my resolution to have all my Christmas gifts done early this year, I have been busy painting. (That and the fact that these things were on super sale ;)). SO here are a few things I've been working on. I may or may not show you the finished products, you may have to wait til Christmas.

Oh the cradle is probably for a birthday present in May, just getting it done before I have a newborn in the house!

This material I am hoping to turn into something for gifts as well, I was thinking of doing jammies with an appliqued singlet.
