I should finish cleaning my house right now, but I have been finding things to do to delay. Robert did not get the new position, but is content where he is. It would have been TOO much stress for him if he had. Besides, school next semester works better this way. He now has a plan and direction; he would like to be a criminal investigator for the IRS or the like. He thinks it is best of both world: part cop, part accountant.
Joel has finally slowed down with his seemingly permanent growth spurt. He is about 28" long and weighs around 20lbs. If you aren't familiar with averages or whatnot for babies, he is the size of your average 1 year old... at 5 months. Unfortunately, the poor baby has a staph infection on a not-so-pleasant area. It is so sad. Thank goodness for medicine!
My body is slowly progress to the not-quite-sure-if-she's-preggo stage. Looking at me, you might either think I'm 3 months pregnant... or that my stomach is 3 lbs heavier. Other than fainting once (yeah, it was stupid and all my fault), I feel GREAT! Better than the last pregnancy, which was pretty dang easy.
I will upload pictures later, after I finish cleaning. My lazy-time is over for now...

I know how incredibly concerned everyone is about my computer (well, my pictures, anyway). I regret to inform you that there is a 99% chance that they are gone for good. It looks like the hard drive is what crashed, so... bye bye pictures. Fortunately, I have saved about 1,000 from online. Unfortunately, that means I am losing 11,000. Ugh.
Joel is becoming more fun each day! He flirts with the ladies like it's no body's business! He's an avid thumb sucker and loves to touch EVERYTHING. He started rolling over... and then stopped. He enjoys "talking" and "walking". He is also teething, which isn't so lovely.
I am doing great; I hardly even know I'm pregnant. I haven't really been nauseous or anything. I think it is because I am so distracted by Joel that I don't have time to think about myself. The only reason I "feel" pregnant is my cravings. Nothing too strong yet, but I try to get spicy or sour foods as often as I can.
Robert is diong well. He is still working full time and going to school full time. No rest for him. He may get a new position soon; we'll have to see how it goes.
