I ALWAYS do a 'Christmas in July' project!
This year it is a pillow that I have wagged around with me since April! I finally started working on it in earnest this week while I am down here with the babies.
For over 30 years I taught an art class in my dining room every Tuesday night.
During the month of July we would listen to Christmas music, sip hot chocolate with peppermint stick stirrers and work on our Christmas painting.
Things have been a little different this year but I will still manage to finish this pillow by the end the week. I know! The project will be stretching into August! I can NOT believe today is July 31st!!
I have been down here in Houston watching babies grow!
And they ARE growing!
Right now they are the size of doll babies!
Can you tell who is the biggest?
Harrison, then Kailey, followed by Trystan and Logan taking turns at being the smallest. They won't stay little long so Amber takes every opportunity to put cute clothes on them.
We don't spend ALL of our time holding babies!
They are still feeding every three hours so Mom and Dad have to keep those bottles filled and waiting. Night feedings are still the biggest challenge but they won't last forever. I am going to start PRAYING for each one as I give that last bottle about midnight that they will sleep just a little longer between each night time feeding.
The number of diapers we go through in a day is staggering!
Every baby has his/her own chart where important information is logged in......
like the amount they drank and the contents of their diapers!
Have I mentioned how ORGANIZED Amber and Mike are?
You simply couldn't DO quadruplets without being organized!
Mike works for such an awesome corporation.
Each Monday and Thursday someone from his company shows up at the door with a full dinner! EVERY Monday and Thursday!!
And the meals are so GOOD!
We have had pot roast with all the veggies, brisket that melted in your mouth along with smoked sausage, potato salad, baked beans AND home made BREAD!!
Last night we had deliciously seasoned pork loin with fresh broccoli, roasted asparagus and rice WITH crescent dinner rolls and chocolate chip cookies.
I am telling you......these coworkers are AWESOME!!
While I have been away Louis Dean has continued work on the RV back home.
We should be moving it down her by the middle of August.
Every night - between feedings - I sit out in the front yard here while Louis Dean sits on the driveway 260 miles away at home and we have our evening glass of wine together.
It's not the same but it will have to do for now.
Our 'Camper Plans' are coming along and soon we will be together again and I can't wait. It is silly how much I miss that husband of mine! What makes it even nicer is that he misses ME, too!!
The last day of July! I just can't believe how time is FLYING by!!
