Slow start to a new year

So I didn't update anything after my last post when I was on leave from work. Tyler finally made his debut October 9, 2015, which is his paternal Grandma's birthday too. He was a whole 9 pounds, 15 ounces and 22 inches long. He's now 3 months old, big sister Ayla isn't sure if she adores him, is jealous of him, or both. It's been a roller coaster with her lately. I left my job at the college, as I was going 20 hours a day between taking care of a new born and making sure Ayla and Sean got up in time for work/school, and I'm one of those people that need more sleep than that.

I've definitely enjoyed the time with my family that I wasn't getting to spend with them while working the shift I was on. I'm currently looking for a part time job so that I can help with finances, but still be with my family.
Ayla's been enjoying school, asking several times why school can't go all week long, and why they have to have two "home days".

Tyler's starting to explore and swing/grab at things near him, as well as chewing on things even more, as seen in the picture above. 
Ayla's turning 6 at the end of the month...It's hard to believe, events like make me feel my age....and I'm not that old. 
Spending more time with Jessa and Sanatra, and enjoying it, though with the way Sanatra and Ayla act, you'd think they were siblings, not cousins....
In the meantime, just enjoying the time with my family, and waiting for the right door to open.
I hope all of your new year is off to a great start and may the year be a good one.
