Happy mid-week to you all 🙂
- Thank you so much for the nice comments on our “coming home” post yesterday 🙂
- Don’t forget to check out the Moms On Call special offer and giveaway I’m hosting this week HERE!
- So, the babies had a good night of sleep last night. Only woke once to eat at 1am. The strange thing is, I fill a bit more tired. Go figure!
- I need to make a schedule of shows we want to watch. I’m afraid I’ve already missed premiers. Since we are starting bath time and bedtime early, we really have to record most things and watch when we can.
- The way our house is set up, either the nursery door has to be closed when we are in the living area, or we have to be in our room with our door closed and the nursery door open…during their bedtime that is. It’s tricky.
- I think we are going to switch to AT&T U-Verse. Do you all have it? Like it?
- I’m still struggling to drink water. Evidently, my brain thinks my body drank enough for a while when I was pregnant. Not the case. I need to drink more.
- Brent being back to work during the day is going pretty good. The babes and I have our little schedule. They are changing everyday and I’m so thankful to get to see all the little moments. Some moments are hard as Sloane is still pretty impatient. She thinks I have four hands.
- I wish blogger had a better search tool to find previous posts.
- I’ve been craving some coffee and red wine.
- Oh, I’m having food cravings, too. Maybe more so than when I was pregnant.
- Brent and I haven’t cooked anything in our kitchen in months. Hopefully we can start doing that again soon.
- These magazines make me want to cook…or eat more so.
- The pile of mail and magazines on my night table, that I need to go through, is ridiculous.
- Someone tweeted yesterday about a four month old who fell out of the shopping cart as the bag boy pushed the cart over a speed bump in the parking lot. The baby did not survive. I read it here. It breaks my heart and I will pray for this family. I have an irrational fear of Knox & Sloane getting dropped or falling on something hard. I’d prefer people even be sitting down when they hold them.
- I pray for tomorrow.
- I’ve been meaning to post this for a few weeks. A lot of you may read my friend Katie’s blog? It is known as “Modern-Day Family.” Well, she had a little mishap with her domain and it got taken 🙁 So, she created a new one! However, it didn’t do the friendly change across interwebs on it’s own magic. So, if you followed her before, you can find her here now! If you didn’t follow before, you should 🙂
- I was thinking about how a lot of our friends are having babies right now. I’ve been dreaming about fun little play dates.
- I love when we un-swaddle them and they are waking up from a nap. It’s so funny…
- Oh great, I just remembered my mom brought over a loaf of her banana bread yesterday. Dangerous.
- My excitement over the doorbell ringing has changed. I use to think, oh something fun has arrived. I now think, I hope there is no one there that wants to take my beautiful babies and leave me tied up. Freak, I know.
- Next month, my Scentsy sponsor, and friend, is donating some $ towards Cohen’s donation project. SO nice of her! I’ll post details soon.
- Did I ever mention the people at Apple were SO nice in contacting me to talk about the project. They definitely want to help when we are closer to where we want to be!
- I’m itching to get some fall decor out of the attic. I wonder if all my fun pumpkins I painted last year will still be in tact. I can’t believe it will be October soon. I love that the holidays are coming.
- A fellow blogger emailed me with a prayer request this week. In her words—-In July, our community pastor’s wife (Wren Horn, 33 years old) was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at 25 weeks pregnant with a precious baby girl. Brian and Wren also have 2 adorable boys, ages 3 and 1. While they could not make a complete diagnosis at the time due to the pregnancy, they knew the cancer was either stage 3 or stage 4 as it was found in her lymph nodes as well as colon. They were able to do 2 rounds of chemo while she was still pregnant, and she was able to carry the pregnancy to 32 weeks. While the chemo did not shrink the cancer, it did keep it from continuing to grow, but radiation would be necessary to actually fight the cancer. The 2 rounds of chemo allowed the baby time to grow in utero, and Grace Elizabeth was born on Sunday, August 28th at 3lbs, 10oz. She is still hospitalized, but doing remarkably well, and could be coming home in the next week. The plan from this point was for Wren to begin radiation tomorrow to fully fight this awful disease. On Friday she had a PET scan to finalize the staging of the cancer (stage 3 or 4). Today they received the devastating news that the cancer is advanced stage 4 and has spread to other areas of her body, including her lungs. They will not be starting radiation tomorrow, but will be meeting with the oncologist again on Wednesday to determine what the options are. Updates can be found on the church website here – http://www.harriscreek.org/
- I have a prayer request for DW and Amy. They are on their journey to parenthood and they’ve just experienced something I cannot fathom. Amy is handling it with such grace. They have been through SO MUCH. I pray for peace..and a baby.
Hope you all are having a good week!
