Things could not be better here at the Raine Drop.
Talia continues to adore The Bro.
Declan continues to pack on the weight (mostly into his cheeks) and is settling into more of a schedule everyday.
Mama continues to get more sleep than anyone with a month-old baby deserves, in my humble opinion (not that I'm complaining, Declan!!)
It's almost Easter, and the weather feels like Spring, which means we get to wear our new spring clothes!
The old 19 inch TV keeps flickering more and more often - a new TV seems to be just around the corner. We don't even watch that much TV, but it was pretty sad to sit on the couch and squint at our tiny TV during the Olympics. ("What was the score?" "What flag is that?" "Why can't we see the entire picture?" LOL!) And it's depressing to play Wii on such a tiny, sad TV. We could just go and get a new TV, but since we don't use it that much, and neither of us like to waste things, we just haven't because this one still works. Now it's become a huge joke with our family and friends - we had some friends over during the Olympics, and everyone let out a huge cheer everytime it flickered. And at the beginning of every month, Rainer and I guess what day the TV will finally give out. Good times!
We started Bark Buster training the boys again, their behaviour is about a million percent better after only a few days. Erin, Edie & Jackie came by for a visit on Friday and they did NOT get mauled or even barked at. Success!! Today, only Bert noticed that the garbage truck had the audacity to park at the end of our driveway and steal our garbage - and he wasn't even all that upset about it. My biggest pet peeve is a poorly trained dog. I especially hate that I own two of them. True, we have more work to do, and there is always room for improvement. But they no longer bark at the doorbell, they sit & stay when told, they don't go on the baby's blanket when he's playing on the floor, and they're almost broken of jumping up. We're on the right track.
And lastly, we're having roast chicken for supper tonight. Life is good.
