Over the past few days I have gone through horrific emotional stress. There have been absolute lows and super high highs. For my own memory I would like to post about my experience and what I was feeling about this most precious baby. It was a normal morning in our suburban household. Bill had left [...]
We have finally been released from the hospital. Mimi is taking a nap in her own crib right now. Of course I am sitting just outside of her crib typing this and watching her. This has been a very tough experience. I cannot express how much all the love and prayers helped me during this [...]
9 Months in 20 Seconds: that is so much fun to watch.
Just got The Girls down to sleep after taking them up to visit Madeline this afternoon. I worked in the morning while my mom watched Annie and Kimberly. So what’s going on with little Mimi? Not much. She’s the same as she was last night: alert at times, groggy the rest, and often crabby. She [...]
Things are getting better. Madeline has woken up a few times from her medicine-induced slumber. Her hands are tied to the bed so she can’t pull out her breathing tube, which is lodged between her vocal cords; it’s pretty difficult to watch her cry silently and struggle to reach up and remove something that’s obviously [...]
I’m posting this from Phoenix Children’s Hospital as Madeline lies sedated in the pediatric ICU. Phew, that’s quite an opening sentence, isn’t it!
“I am growing a big girl in my tummy.” ~ Annie Said after eating 1/2 of a hamburger, 2 chicken nuggets and some french fries!
Annie and Kimberly’s first night of curlers went well. Kimberly woke up with all curlers in tact and Annie only had the two closest to her face missing. I think that they look super cute! Back view; see if you can tell them apart!
Tonight after bath I put Annie and Kimberly’s hair in sponge rollers. They absolutely loved it and looked super cute. They are excited to have curlers, which is what they are calling curly hair, for tomorrow. Here are some pictures of the super cute girls. Take note that they are both wearing their favorite color [...]
How do you get them to stop getting on each other’s nerves? I mean this seriously, any suggestions. These three know each other so intimately that they know just what will send another over the edge.
Biggest Baby Ever: weighing 14 pounds, 13 ounces was born by C-section (duh!) joining his four siblings whose birth weights were 9 pounds, twins at 8½ pounds each, and “nearly 12 pounds.” Holy moly!
We had some time to kill before dinner was ready, so I took The Girls to the school playground. Naturally, they had a blast but this time Madeline was able to participate in just about everything her big sisters did. She climbed up the equipment herself and slid down the slide. She even swung for [...]
We were over at frequent commenter, cousin, and fellow blogger Michelle’s house yesterday to visit and get our hairs cut. They have a big backyard replete with toys like a swing set, trampoline, and play house. This backyard also has a number of chickens and cats. Everyone was playing on the aforementioned toys when Kimberly [...]
Mimi has started spitting and watching it drop to the ground. Yeah, it is gross. If you can’t imagine how gross it really is imagine walking and wondering why your foot is wet! UGH!! I hope we can convince her to stop soon.
Our Mimi does not talk a lot. I am sure she is just finding out how to interject with the dynamic duo. She had maybe 10-15 words that she used. All of a sudden she has exploded with trying to say more words. She was playing today with Kimberly’s Bumpy Dog and kept putting him [...]
Kimberly and Annie woke up at 5:45 this morning. I let them know that until they have jobs that is not allowed!!!! Ohhh this is going to be a long day!
I am doing better. Beginning to feel more like myself. I still get terribly tired easily and still have pain from time to time, but I am doing well. Hot flashes seem to be getting better. All in all doing well. Kids are getting more and more used to having me back. I think that [...]
I have been trying to get rid of so much of the stuff that Bill and I have lying around. Bill took three trips to GoodWill and we are nowhere close. Bill and I cleaned out our closets last week and they look so much better. Boy we had some outdated stuff in there. LOL [...]
Here’s my 50 goals to accomplish by the age of 50. I think I’ve been woefully remiss in my goal setting since The Girls came around and this is the start of remedying that. There were a ton of goals that I came up with that just didn’t fit such a long time frame, but [...]
