Closing in on 11 months

We are cruising along (haha). The girls are growing fast. J is getting really good at walking, while G can take a few steps here and there. They can say a few words, although J is really taking off there too. They eat a lot of solids now, and still nurse a lot during the day too. They both dance and climb everything. They are trouble. They also throw little tantrums when they don't get their way now, so that's fun!

I am doing a little better? The shot for my dequervain worked wonderfully. My anti-depressants seem to be helping some. A will be losing his job in the coming months though, the company decided to terminate his department after all. He has several interviews this week and we are hoping something works out soon. His job has been our sole source of income, so this has been really stressful for us all. I believe that things are going to work out though. I really do.

One day at a time.

10 months out

We've survived 10 months now. It's hard to believe that they'll be a year in just two months.

G got the first tooth amongst them, we are standing strong as one between them. They are both crawling and cruising all over the place. J is a mountain climber and scales anything and everything. They are still nursing a lot, and eating a lot more solids. They continue to be two completely different children, J dancing and G drumming. J follows V, and G follows J. The girls wrestle a lot now, and it's scary yet adorable.

Things for me have been... rough. I have bad mommy thumb (De Quervain Syndrome). It's gotten increasingly painful, despite using a splint and Ibuprofen around the clock. I am scheduled to get steroid injections in my wrist, but the soonest I could get in was weeks from now. For now... dealing with it as best I can.

I also had to go back on anti-depressants. Things haven't gotten better and while normally I can weather my "funks" alright... I've been struggling a lot. It will take time for the medicine to kick in, but hopefully after it does I'll see some improvement.
