I want to get caught up on our blog.  A lot of things have happened over the last few months - Jacob's birthday, Christmas, Jacob "played" on a basketball team, etc. and I want to document all of that.  As I have said before this blog is our journal.

But something has kept me from posting about these events.  I'm trying to find a balance.  A balance between showing what our life is really like and thus how hard things are with a child who is likely autistic and with twins (one of which doesn't say any words even though he'll be two in only 3 weeks - sadly a road that I am very familiar with); and what we wish life were like with 3 kids.

I want my blog posts to be realistic and an account of things, but I don't want it to be too depressing.  I want to tell about the way things really happen because I know one day I'll want to look back and remember what it was really like, not make it appear that we're all happy doing fun things all the time.  But I don't want the blog to be somewhere where I come to complain (pretty sure I've done enough of that on Facebook in the past).

I plan to work on getting caught up soon.  I already told the happy version of Halloween 2012, but I want to tell about all the other stuff I also want to remember about Halloween and I've been trying to figure out to do things like that without it sounding like I'm throwing a pity party for us over here.  

I purchased more space for pictures on the blog, so those will be coming soon.
