The Natives Were Restless Today!

Today was a long one that started early - my alarm went off at 6:15 AM!
I climbed - literally! - out of bed, lurched into the bathroom after flipping the coffee pot switch and started to dress for the day. I was in Quadville by 7:30  and left at 6:30 this evening.
It's been a long day - for me, the babies, Amber, Mike's mom......for all of us!

I think the babies are beginning to teethe. 
They are starting to pull up!
They will be crawling any minute now!
What worked before - as in feeding them in the pack and plays while they are in their boppies - doesn't now.
We are kind of trying things out for the time being.
 Amber is a GENIUS at figuring out what works!! 
She has got this - just as soon as she can actually stand up and be herself again! Her recovery continues and she is doing as well as can be expected. Houston has terrible allergies as Louis Dean found out and Amber suffers from these as well. Bless her heart! All the coughing and choking is NOT fun after you have just had MAJOR surgery!

Today we had a delicious lunch of a Mexican chicken dish served with rice and chips with guacamole.
Before her surgery she stashed away some freezer bags of crock pot meals!
I need to get the recipe for the one we had today because it tasted wonderful!

I love these baby toes and baby hands!

We did a little Vitamin D therapy this afternoon.
It is so hard to stay in the house 24/7 and not go CRAZY!
It was a beautiful day in Texas so I threw a denim quilt out in the front yard and took a couple of babies with me! Amber needed the SUN as much if not more than they did!

Mike's mom arrived last night to help out for a few days.
It does, indeed, take a village as the saying goes.

Now that I'm home, it's time to figure out what to eat for dinner!
I am thinking cottage cheese and some avocado and tomatoes with a few crackers would suit me just fine.

And speaking of SUITS......that's what we plan to watch tonight!

I really like this show on the USA network.
Last year I watched it by myself.
This year Louis Dean is watching it with me.
I not only like the actors and characters -
I love LOVE the music!!

This is a good way to close the day.
And tomorrow doesn't have to start QUITE as early as today!!

No fun at all to have to cough that much after surgery. Hope that Amber keeps a pillow handy to hold herself together. How good that Mike's mom is there to help. Hope that everything settles back into a great routine. Get lots of rest!

Poor that you got to go outside..

You are one "Hard-core Grandma". God bless ya', Friend! Amber is a Saint.

You must be getting energy straight from heaven. How else could you do this otherwise?

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

OH WOW!!! Growing baby changes happening! Hard enough to adjust to, with one baby. And you all have 4 to deal with. Me-thinks you all will be looking back with *envy,* at the early months. :-))))))))))

But Amber is a genius with figuring out things! She will do it!

Whew! You are busy! How great that you could escape to the outdoors for your shot of vitamin D!

I'll have to check out Suits. I must admit, I haven't caught much television since the Seahawks lost in the playoffs.


Nonnie said...

Yes, I will be looking forward to seeing your escapades with them learning to walk!!! Yikes.

Linda, You are (still) a trouper!

The LOC and I both enjoy Suits a lot.
Have a blessed weekend.

Wow look at these adorable babies, they're growing so fast and to see them outdoors is awesome! I hope Amber is feeling well real soon and hats off to all of you who are helping with the wee darlings!

Suits is phenomenal, one of my favorite shows on right now, actually it's my favorite show on right now. Lewis, looks like he's staying put eh? lol He's such a weasel, but one that I almost feel sorry for at times, almost that is!

Have a wonderful weekend Linda!
