OK, so it's been forever since I posted. Things have been super busy around here. First to the trips. They are all doing well and over their ear infections and back to their normal selves. We have been doing alot of playing outside, but it has to be done early in the morning. By about 10:30, it's already ninety degrees outside and their little faces just get so red and sweaty. So we usually spend the rest of the day inside and then go back outside in the evening when the sun is behind the trees. It's still hot, but at least the sun doesn't instantly scorch your skin. We have also been doing alot of playing in our new flower sprinkler. Huddy likes it sometimes and Ella and Carter love it all the time. Here's some pics from our outdoor fun time!
"Flowers that spin around and squirt are not OK in my book" - Huddy
"Is everyone looking at me?! OK, good!" - Ell being her usual vain self
"Holy Moly that's cold, but I like it!" - Carter man
We also tried Popsicles for the first time this past weekend. It did not go as well as I had thought. We are not quite old enough to know how to work the Flavor-Ice Popsicles. Lesson learned, on to plan "B".
"Holy crap Mom, why would you make me try that sour nastiness" -Huddy
"MMMMMMMMMMM" - Introducing Miss Ell, the big girl who will eat anything!
"I don't know what you fools are doing, this plastic is awesome!" - Carter
Surprise and I are doing well. I didn't throw up for two days and then, bam it came back worse than ever. We go back to the doctor tomorrow and I'm hoping she'll have some words of wisdom or some good drugs that will help me keep some food down. We're at fourteen weeks and I've only gained one pound so far so I know that's not the best but the little one is growing I can tell. When I lay down at night, you can see it just flipping and flopping all over the place. And when I woke up this morning, it was sticking straight out of the left side of my belly like I had swallowed a baseball! Too funny.
Also to update you on our friends Sam and Hollee. Their little ones, Beau, Lilly and Marlee, are doing well. They are all on ventilators but are doing exactly what is expected at this gestational age. Please keep them in your prayers, the next few weeks/months are going to be really long and hard on them! Thanks!
