Both kids are sleeping. Husband went to bed a little while ago, and here I am. I feel like I'll never get back to normal. I feel like I live in one of those "life comes at you fast" commercials. Catherine is two and half months old. She is beautiful and such a great baby. She smiles and coos and really, really loves her mama. Sofia is good with her, but still drives me nuts when she gets way too close and kisses her on the mouth and pries her fingers apart and stuff.

My beautiful Miss Catherine was 12 lbs at her two-month checkup. It's so weird how different the two children are as babies and how different I am as a mom the second time around. I feel like I can appreciate the babyness much more easily this time around. I think I felt a little shell-shocked with Sofia. Going back to work will be tough.

We got both girls into a pre-school. That alone was an absolutely crazy experience. Somehow between the pregnancy, moving, buying a house, having the baby, unpacking, freaking out, etc I forgot to start looking for a daycare/preschool for the kids. Eventually I am going back to work. My start date is mid-September, so last week I hustled and made myself a royal pain the butt for the place I wanted to put my kids. They start next Monday. Well, Sofia starts, but I'm not parting with Catherine just yet. I'll be dropping her off little by little so she can get used to the folks there. Good thing is I will literally be just a few blocks away from the place. And I'll be working from home as long as my job will let me. I'm supporting my Houston job from San Antonio and I don't know how long I can keep that up.

August 21st is my wedding anniversary and we're not even celebrating. We have our parents' meet the teacher night at the preschool. Then this weekend we're having Sofia's birthday party for her birthday Sunday. Then she starts school Monday. I feel like my head has been spinning for months.

All summer has been strange, but good. Sofia, myself, and Catherine. Sofia and I got to spend a lot of time together, and I'm pretty sad having to part with her. She is still very much my baby. Life is tough, but I love my girls more than anything in the world.
