Amber and Mike recently bought a Wii so LD and I had to give it a try!
Louis Dean lost all track of time. We had the game on for about 4 hours!
Amber and I played some darts and shuffleboard.....
then Louis Dean played! And played......and played and PLAYED!
He played against the computer and it won most of the time.
When he stopped at 7:00 pm, he asked, "Is it three o'clock yet?"
He absolutely could NOT believe how the time had gone by so fast!
Yesterday Amber had another anatomy scan - the best one yet!
All the babies posed!
Baby 'D' weighing in at 15 oz!
Another Baby D pic......she was stealing the show!
I love these little 4D pics!
Baby 'C' - the BOY! - giving one of his sisters a kiss!
The sister he is kissing really doesn't have a hollow head!!
The babies all look good and have good heart beats.
They are in the 40-50 percentile which is excellent for quads!
The boy baby weighs 1 lb. 2 oz. while his sisters A and D weigh 15 oz. and B weighs 14 oz.
Amber's cervix is closed and has even lengthened to 5 cm from 4.4 last time.
More good news! Looks like another week at home.
Tomorrow marks her 22 week point!
photo op anatomy scan was followed by a visit to Starbucks - which just HAPPENED to be inside Target!
She had her feet propped up and we settled back for a good chatty hour or so!
I LOVED every single moment of that afternoon.
Since we WERE already at Target - we felt like we simply HAD to stroll through the baby department!
I scooped up these tiny Newborn jeans for the quads for $1.80 each!!
They will look adorable with white onesies!
We left the house about 11:45 am and didn't get home until 7:30 pm.
Louis Dean had been left 'home alone' where he napped and put in some computer time. Guess he felt like he needed some attention because he started having some pretty strong chest pains shortly after we got back.
His blood pressure was elevated so I gave him a nitroglycerin tablet.
It took THREE (the maximum dose - one at a time 5 minutes apart) before the pain left and his blood pressure lowered.
WHEW!! I had already put my shoes on and had gathered up some things so I could take him to the ER! SO grateful we didn't have to go!
Today he has felt much better. I scheduled an appointment with his cardiologist for when we get home.
Add to the worry over LD's chest pains and blood pressure was the news about the violent weather back in the DFW area!!
Thankfully - all the family are OK!
The pictures we saw on the news were scary!
Our neighborhood escaped with just some heavy rains.
I have to brag on my awesome son in law, Mike.
He is truly a man among men! I am so proud of him and the way he is taking care of his family. He had the fridge and pantry all stocked when we got here Monday. He even bought some of my favorite foods just because!
He never walks by Amber without asking her if she needs anything.
I just took a peach cobbler out of the oven and Louis Dean put a ham in.
I'm going to make Company Mashed Potatoes and some Garlic Green Beans along with a salad for dinner. We are looking forward to a stress free evening!
Perhaps a little drive way sitting!
