Our First Trip to Wynne

Tuesday I loaded up all 3 kids and we made our first trip to Wynne. It only took me all morning to get us out the door...ha! We went to Jac Jac's and she watched the babies while I ran a couple of errands. Sam played with Blake and Z-Money and when I got back we took him to Eldridge Court to see the Easter decorations.

Pics from the week

Check out these John Deere boots Nonna and Pop picked up for the babies.


These are our birth announcements. We didn't order that many of them so I thought I would post it and share with everyone:)

Rolling Over

Yesterday, I put the babies down on their blanket for some tummy time. I was shocked when Sawyer ROLLED OVER! I screamed and scared E to death. He probably did it four times. They are so big!
A dear friend Dorothy Hall made the babies this sweet quilt. It says "Twice as much to love, two blessings from above."

Sam reading to sweet

Sam & Kohen

Laura was sweet enough to let Sam come play Saturday. She even sent him home fed, bathed, and ready for bed! She is the best. I stole these pics off of her blog.
What is he doing with that awful red tractor??? Don't you guys have any real tractors to play with? Lol

Farm Season 2010

The first rice of the year has been planted!

I survived

Well I survived my first week back to work. Mrs. Donna stayed with the babies Monday-Wednesday and Grammy B stayed with them Thursday and Friday. We are so lucky to have family with them this week. Next week is spring break and I am so glad to have some time to rest. This week has been exhausting.

We are trying to stretch the babies as long as we can at night. They are making it most nights to 4:00 or 5:00. I get in the shower at 6:00 and then leave by 7:15. I used to be one of those people who needed 8 hours of sleep. I have learned to function on 6, but if they are interrupted hours I struggle.
People ask me about my typical afternoon. By the time I leave school, pick up Sam, and run maybe one errand it is 5:00 when I get home.
5-6: wash pump parts and bottles, start laundry (which there is so much of), then maybe start some kind of dinner...ha
6: pump, feed babies, feed Sam, clean up after Sam, give Sam his bath
7:15- Sam winds down, we read
7:30- Sam goes to bed, I eat, do housework, wash pump parts and bottles again, get everything packed for the next day and night feeding
9- pump and feed again
10:30: hopefully be headed to bed
Don't get me wrong I am not complaining, I feel so lucky to have 3 beautiful, healthy babies it is just a lot of work. The week after spring break our new babysitter is starting. I hope it all works out. E is getting back in the field so I will definitely need some help. We don't have much planned this week so maybe I will have time to post some pictures.

Enjoying my last few days

I go back to work Monday, so I am just enjoying my last few days at home.
I love this...oh how I see my future

Jamey came out and helped me with a feeding today. She brought the babies precious outfits and me some lunch:)

This is E falling down on the job of a late night feeding...haha

Doctor Updates

Sam in his jammies and Fireman get-up Uncle Robert got him for his birthday.

Tuesday we took the babies to Children's Hospital for their swallow study. Baxley is the one who chokes the most, but when it came test time she did great. Sawyer started aspirating almost immediately. We explained that was what Baxley usually does so they told us to start thickening both of their bottles. So far they are doing great with the changes. We will later have to go back to see if they are no longer aspirating before they can stop using the thickener.

Wednesday we took all 3 to the Children's Clinic in Jonesboro. It was Sam's 2-year check-up and the babies received their 2nd RSV shot. We made it surprisingly well with all 3 of them.

They weighed the babies while we were there, Sawyer weighs 10 pounds and Baxley weighs 9 pounds.

2- Year Stats on Sam
  • He weighs 30 pounds and is 341/2 inches tall
  • He is talking so well and has a great vocabulary...he amazes me everyday with the things he knows and the sentences he puts together.
  • He loves talking about: his brother and sissy and tells everyone, "brother cries", tractors, combines, the shop, bins, and anything that has to do with farming, the girls (Emmaline and Elizabeth), big trucks, Thomas the Train, ambulances, hats, books, outside, his show, and anything else daddy is into.
  • He knows where Nonna's house is
  • He loves to look at pictures and name everyone in them
  • He is a great eater and will eat almost anything, except peanut butter
  • He loves juice and his cup which we think is his security
  • He goes to sleep around 7:30 and sleeps until 7:00. He goes to bed so good at night!!!
  • He is a great big brother, when Sawyer cries he says, "Come on mommy brother crying" and he tries to give him his pacy
  • He is so social and outgoing and is so happy
  • He amazes me everyday and I am so proud of him
  • I Love You Sam!!!

Summer Projects: Get rid of pacy, potty train, move into toddler bed
