June was a whirlwind month.  I started a new job and it nearly knocked me on my ass.  I don't mean physically but emotionally.  It's a change.  A necessary change and a huge one.  It took me nearly all month to realize that it was the right change but that didn't come without many emotions. 

I still catch myself with bouts of anxiety over the fact that I am solely responsible for these two amazing babies.  Me.  Alone.  And every decision I make affects them. The thoughts overwhelm me sometimes.  I know I am 'doing it' and I know I am lucky and I know I have good babies and that helps.   

With this new job, I have less time to blog so here are some highlights:

In June:
  • Sweet Potato started and finished waterbabies (The Dynamo went last session).
  • Both babies got their first two bottom teeth!
  • Sweet Potato joined his brother in the army/belly crawling department!
  • The babies got their first colds.
  • The Dynamo joined his brother with lots of "talking".
  • The Dynamo started waving bye (sort of).
  • Sweet Potato claps his hands together (sort of).
And of course, I couldn't post without adding some pictures....

Finally a shot where they are both looking!

Happy July!
