Sorry for the lack of updates, but as you might guess things have been wonderful crazy around the Coburn household lately. 🙂
Corinne is healthy and happy and growing quickly. She’s only 11 weeks, but already wearing clothing sized for a 6-month old. She still wakes up every 1-2 hours at night to feed, which is exhausting and stressful. But mom and dad are learning to cope without sleep, and hopefully she will start sleeping in longer stretches soon. I am in the process of updating the gallery and adding photos, so by the time you read this new pictures of the baby should be available. Yea!
Zoe and Andre are also continuing to adjust. I think Zoe feels it the most, she is getting a lot less attention these days because of the baby. It is getting easier to make time to spend with her, though, and she seems to be doing okay.
Last month the Exalted boxed set Dreams of the First Age finally arrived in stores, and I was at Endgame the day it came out to pickup my copy. Yea! Unfortunately it’s not as cool as I was hoping it would be (there aren’t even character sheets), and the company who produced it has decided not to provide any website support. That’s a shame.
Speaking of gaming, D&D 4th Edition arrives June 6th. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the 3rd edition, but from what I’ve seen they’ve really taken player feedback to heart and tried to create something that truly is new and improved. I’m cautiously optimistic, and am looking forward trying it out.
The last bit of news isn’t quite as much fun as everything else. Last month I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Yea, a new baby and the diagnosis of a chronic, life changing illness all at once. It was, and still is, pretty difficult. But as far as diabetes goes, mine is a fairly mild case. I’m stabbing myself in the finger 3+ times a day to monitor my blood sugar, and it looks like I’ll be able to control it completely through diet, exercise, and oral medication (no insulin shots). It has changed a lot of things, however, and I am sure those changes have just begun. Raelene has been incredibly supportive of me through this, and I want to thank her for that. I doubt I could have gotten through that first month without her, and I know I will need her in the months to come.
