I am officially a bad blogger. But it won't always be this way.  I promise.  Things at work and home are crazy busy.  I work for a company called Aramark now.  I still work at SMU but not for SMU (bye bye free college education for my children!).  There is a lot to be excited about at work, including a promotion!  I am now the Director of Landscape Management which means my work load doubled overnight.  But that's okay.  I had a 15 man (and one woman) crew before the outsourcing.  I am losing 7 people.  Most will be taking the generous retirement package; several others are choosing not to stay.  Sooo I've lost almost half my crew.  That means I'll be out on campus picking up trash, watering plants, scooping poop, pulling weeds, etc. in addition to all my other duties, old and new, until we hire a new crew.  Hiring always takes forever for one person and I've got 7 to replace!  So the blogging might suffer.  Don't give up on me though.

William loves to help me cook.  I sing to him and he thinks about the beauty and mysteries of life.

Weekend Update

William sucks his thumb now.  When I put him in his crib and walk away I can hear him sucking it as I walk out of the room.  It may the cutest, sweetest sound I've ever heard, next to the way Edie says ball, "bauuullllllll".  William is a calm little man.  He is perfectly happy sitting in my lap which busy body Edie refused to do from birth on to the present.  Last night I retired the under the sea play station.  William is purely a jumperoo man now.  We had a brief graduation ceremony.  William will jump in his jumperoo for an hour sometimes.  He's even been known to fall asleep in it.  Last night he bounced and watched me cook dinner.  Yes, he's just that perfect.
