I'm still here, honest!

I'm determined not to let this blog go. It's a labour of love. It's just that love of life has been in limited supply recently. Home life is fine. Work life sucks. And I've been guilty of letting the bad stuff (like work) get in the way of the good stuff, like home and this blog. Without seeking pity in anway, I think it's fair to say that the large amounts of manure that life seems to have thrown at me recently have even taken the joy out of my beloved blog. Well, frankly, this will not do!

And what will poor Bumper think if I don't blog as passionately and frequently as I did when Oliver was born! Poor Bumper doesn't seem to get many mentions. It's hard to compete with an elder sibling who demands his parents time, especially when you are still in the womb. But Bumper is never far from our thoughts. And she/he is showing more and more signs that she/he will turn up on time or maybe even earlier. Hayley seems to be showing "low down" and seems to be as big now at 34 weeks as she was with Oliver in the final 2 weeks.

We still haven't got settled names for Bumper. We have a short list of 2 or 3 for a girl, but we are all at sea for a boy's name. We really have to decide before the time comes, but that's turning out to be easier said than done this time.

Anyway, enough rambling. Suffice to say, I'm back!

I sometimes worry that I don't blog as often about Evan as I do about Amy. The problem is that babies tend to _do_ a lot less than three year olds so it's a lot easier to blog about the active one.
