My Big, Fat Identity Crisis

I'm having one of those times where I feel busy over my head and have too many things I want to do, and it becomes too much and instead of doing even ONE of those things, I instead want to fall asleep on the couch in feels good to get that out.  I feel overwhelmed, and excited, and busy.  I have never thrived on "busy".  I like to hang out in our house and watch TV, or listen to music, or play, or read.  Sometimes, I feel overwhelmed by the computer.  I think it makes me unnecessarily "busy"...but then there's the part of me that likes my computer life.  It involves my husband, we sort of have a little group we "tweet" with...I don't's all very new and foreign to me.  I'm still trying to accept sometimes that I have a life on the computer, that actually keeps me busy, doing work that I one day hope to make a living from.  Life will take place, as I "work" here, with my living room as my background.  Does anyone else have a difficult time accepting this "lifestyle"-of having a life on the computer?  Surely I am not the only one who has this identity crisis.

Once again...

It's time for compare & contrast:


Noel, around 7 months.




Lennon, 6 1/2 months.


There are definite differences, but they also look so much alike.  I really am excited to see what they'll look like in another 6 months.  I'm thinking they'll look the same with different colored hair.  Although, Noel's hair's looking pretty brown here, and now he's a total blondie.  Whatever, they are both friggin' darling.

Lennon had his 6 month appointment yesterday.  He's 19 lbs. 14 oz. and 28 in. long.  Once again, his head was at 100% on the scale.  Today, he's been army crawling, crawling, and sitting up for minutes at a time.  All of a sudden, he's not as helpless. 

DSC01246 In other news, Noel had his first recording session with mom & dad.  I'll be sure to post the song when it's complete.  All I can say is that we had great fun, and he's a natural.  Can't wait to see what our family band will accomplish in the next few years. :)
