Sweet Baby Toes! FORTY of Them!

I nabbed this pic from Amber's Facebook!
I LOVE baby feet!
It is no surprise as talented as Amber is that she is also a great photographer!

I talked to her on the phone this morning and she was headed to the NICU.
She, Mike and all FOUR babies are doing wonderfully!
You can read her latest blog post: Living on Prayer.
Be warned! You may need a tissue!

I found this new photo of Kailey chilling in her bed on Amber's Facebook page as well.
Look at that little leg crossed! Bet she is going to be a 'Girlie' Girl!!

Louis Dean and I worked hard over the weekend. He has made great progress on the camper floor. We are trying to get it all in shape to take it down close to Amber and Mike's before the babies start coming home. At the rate the quads are going that time will be here before we know it!

While LD worked on the flooring I did the yard! Yard work is not as easy as it looks!
My son, Benjamin, did lawns as a part time job when he was growing up and he was an artist with the mower, weed eater, edger and blower! It was like magic every week.

We worked SO hard yesterday that we took a bit of a break today.
Did a little shopping at Home Depot and about to make yet another trip.

We were taking some new plants to the back yard when a butterfly landed on my shoulder. You can't really see it very well in this pic but it is there!

It's a butterfly if the wings are folded at rest - RIGHT?

I will close this post with a photo of Louis Dean.
As we were loading pictures from his camera I found some I had not seen before.

He's so cute!
He started blogging again today after not posting anything for over a year!

That's one of the things I love about Louis Dean - he is always learning something new!

Hi Linda - I saw the post and was so relieved - was worrying when you hadn't posted. But I know you have been so busy. Thanks for taking the time to stop by Carole's Chatter.

Here's to a good week.

Deb said...

heading over to check on Amber and the those baby feet..

Vee said...

Oh I did see the butterfly resting so lightly on your shoulder. He was excellently camouflaged.

You hubby is a sweet talker...gotta love that. I think he's got big plans for the Quads.

Amber's post made me sniffle quite a little bit. What a Father's Day Mike must've experienced.

Always prayers...

Debbie said...

Linda your post had me smiling, right from the start to the finish. I'm so happy to hear the babies are all doing so well, this is such a blessing. How long will you be staying with Amber and Mike after they're home? I can't even imagine tending to four babies, that's a lot of laundry and diapers, not to mention the feedings and all that goes along with this. Wow, wow and wow!

I'll check out LD's blog, this could be interesting!

Have a wonderful week, take care and may God continue to bless each and every one of you!

A lovely post, all round. :-)

Happy Midsummer's Night Eve!

"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine..."

bj said...

O, Linda, I do hope you don't mind if I am stealing baby photos along...I so hope you will let me do a post on these 4 little blessings a little later.

Carole said...

Linda - you deserve a little splurge on cocktails this week, I think. Have a great day and good luck with getting the camper ready.

peggy said...

hi, I am still following your remarkable story on Facebook. I am so glad everything is going well for you all. That butterfly was there to give you a kiss!

Carla said...

I'm so jealous of Amber's talent in photography etc. Your's isn't so bad either lady.
