some progress, some not

So the origional stress of coming home has lessened. I still am not full fledged in making dinners again, but I know that will come. Hayden was so glad to come home. He did so good while we were gone in pooping in the toilet. However, since then he has had a bout of just going in his diaper. Well, I know he knows how to do it, but he's just regressed a little.
We went to the park yesterday and he was able to ride his bike all over. let's just say that loving it is an understatement. When he finally stopped to play on the playground(about an hour later--no joke) he was followed around by a cute little girl. Hayden couldn't be more oblivious. I found it funny that he didn't want much to do with girls. I guess we really don't spend that much time with them, since there aren't any in our ward or close around.
Landon is progressing. He's gaining weight nicely--13.7 lbs-13.9 lbs--depending on whose scale we're on. He's getting more strength. He still doesn't hold his head up for long. he can, but it's just for a minute or two. I pray he can master it soon. He's less sore and is so much fun to play with. He's laughing and kicking more. I know he's feeling better when he kicks. As for tummy time, he hates it--always has, but I'm praying he will learn to crawl too. I'm just glad he's gaining weight.
Serge got the highest score on his structure's class midterm. I guess the average was a D, but he got a 97%. That's my hubby! I can't wait for him to start practicing and doing what he loves for a job. Not that he doesn't enjoy his current job, but I know he preferrs Architecture to Civil design. We officially have 4 more weeks of school and then finals! That means one year and one quarter left to go. Serge thinks he's found his senior project topic--built in furniture. I am sooo excited about that! I love the concepts and cannot wait to live in a house he's designed.
Me? thanks for asking. I'm surviving. I think i'm coping by shopping lately. What's a girl to do? I bought some sunglasses yesterday. You need those in the dead of Winter. I am also frustrated with my clothes. Most of them really don't fit. Either they are too tight in the bust or falling off of my hips. I don't know how to win. Hm. Well, back to bed after pumping.

Hey, I've got to schedule a time to stop over. I'll call you.

(Congratulate Serge for me on his high test score.)

So I read your whole post, but admit I didn't get much after the first two lines. It made me wonder if you are receiving meals from your ward. You guys totally should be, if you are not. At least for times when Landon is in the hospital overnight, or the weekend. Just wondering.

Congrats Papa Serge on the finals (I read that part.)
