At the risk of sounding like a broken record….I just wanted to drop in and tell you all that I really am so very grateful for your encouragement. It was priceless to me. No joke. I couldn’t buy friends like you. Really. I tried.
Also, I just wanted to fill you in on how things might be affected with the arrival of little Weston. First, things might be slower and posts may be shorter or more irratic….oh right…things are already irratic. This blog is still gonna be like a Ponderosa all-you-can-eat-buffet of imperfectness…so there will be house posts, personal stuff mixed in with 10K photos of Will and Weston and a little craft-related, or photography-centric posts. Like the header says….a blog about nothing and everything. that’s us.
Oh and I want to write out Weston’s birth story like I did with Will…for posterity sake because heaven knows my brain is mushier than week-old-diaper. So even though it probably won’t happen right away, it will happen.

In the mean time, I do have a ton of project photos and some ‘last-days-before-family-o-four’ posts to bring to you. So please don’t email me saying that I’m ignoring Weston’s arrival…I’m fully aware he’s here. especially at 2 and 4 and 6 am. Oh and since delivering a 10 lb baby is no joke, you can keep me in your thoughts and prayers for some healing. I expected it would be “body-altering” in a lot of ways but I am also experiencing some additional ailments…so mega-ouch.

And just so the grandparents know….Will is adjusting. He went from spending 100% of his time with either me or Jeremy to spending four solid days away from us…which is quite the shocker for any two year old. He had a great time while he was getting spoiled rotten.
He’s definitely interested in the little brother, showering him with affection (when Will says “don’t cry baby Weston Knox” my heart pretty much spontaneously combusts)…but he also came back with a full blown sinus infection (we thought he worked through it weeks earlier but apparently not) and is making some sad behavior decisions. So we are working on establishing some normalcy back in his life, giving him a little structure, and enforcing the boundaries and manners and still encouraging him with quality time and trying to heal his little body so he can spend more time kissing Weston and me. and me. and me. I have four days to make up for.

So all that to say…thank you guys. Thank you for being so supportive. so encouraging. so everything.
