narrated by: Brooklyn

We’ve been trying for a second baby since the previous year. We were hoping to have a baby born in the summer, and now that summer they’d have been born is pretty much at its end. Colleen keeps us busy though with her high-energy. She absolutely adores Roux, and I believe it’s mutual.

Births, Siew

After a long day under the hot sun, Miriam passes out from heat exhaustion. Dr. Morgan had urged her to take it easy, but it’s difficult for Miriam to not be occupied, especially when there is still so much left to be done.

Quint rushes down to the hospital to find Miriam resting and with an IV to get her fluids back where they needed to be. Dr. Morgan insists Miriam and baby are both fine, but that the dehydration seems to have caused labor, as the machine is picking up on regular contractions.

They won’t be going home until after the baby has arrived, and she suggests Quint get everything in order, because she suspects it will go quickly as soon as Miriam awakes.

narrated by: Lulu

Jake moved into his dorm this month with his dormmate and previous bandmate, Monroe. He’s taking a few classes to get him prepared for the college sciences and math as he’s a master of the written language, but not so much the practical. I’m not a master of any academics, so he’s got my admiration.

He’s been coming home more frequently then any of us expected. I think he’s homesick, although he’s playing it off that he’s here for me. I admit, being an only child at home isn’t the easiest gig. I’m glad to have his company on my days off.

Grimsley Family, Picasso

(I’ve been having an issue where my photos aren’t showing, but only for some of my viewers, which has made it difficult for me to test. Tanja has been a huge support and help with testing my site when I request. Here’s hoping this update works proper, as I’ve tweaked a few more things in the last 24 hours plus a new theme which they said may have been a problem. *fingers crossed* and please do let me know if there are any issues.)

narrated by: Jett

The girls graciously allowed me to move in temporarily while Bea finishes college; she has two years left so it gives me some time to get my feet under me.

I believe it was mostly to help pay for the apartment, but I don’t begrudge them in the least. They saved me from having to move back in with either of my terrible parents, and for that I’m truly grateful.

narrated by Elise

When Irina was first born, there was a struggle for balance, and I feared returning to work would add even more chaos to our life. Thankfully it hasn’t been the case, as Irina grows, it’s become easier. I was promoted to Events Manager with the agency, and it’s been great being the boss. I was exhausted trying to find my position in the company after maternity leave, and I’ve finally earned recognition.

Peter works less hours than me, so I come home at five o’clock, and I find them in pajamas.
