We are settling in pretty well over here. Rob stayed home for two days and that was such a blessing. The boys are doing most of my chores for the next week, and we are just relaxing and enjoying each other. I am trying to be good and not do anything strenuous for two weeks. Those of you who know me know that this is odd, because I am usually up and cooking the next meal. I have read that it is so important for us to get one week of in the bed rest, then the next week being off your feet as much as possible. With six weeks total of no picking up heavy things or strenuous activity. This helps with all the structural support of moms insides and allows mom time to rebuild muscular integrity. Especially those of us with more than a few kiddos. So no more super mom for this gal, I am going to rest and if the house is not as ship shape as I would like that is OK.


The boys love their new sister and Jordan cant keep his hands off of her ;-) Eve has been having a harder time adjusting than any of my others have had. She is a bit more emotional and has developed an attitude of sorts. She loves her "sissy havva" but cant understand it all I guess. She has grown up a little bit. I was taking a bath a few days ago and she was standing next to the bathtub. She pulled down the wash rag and started washing my leg and my back.....so sweetly. Then as I was standing up to get out she grabbed the towel off the bar and handed it to me....geesh where did my 20 month old go?





It snowed here for the three days after Ava was born. The boys were in heaven!


Well, Ava is telling me she's hungry! Everyone have a blessed week!

GLAD EVERYONE IS DOING WELL. THERE MUST BE SOMETHING TO THE 2 WEEK MARK AFTER GIVING BIRTH BECAUSE MY GRANDMOTHER WHO IS 92--SAID THAT WHEN SHE HAD MY DAD AND MY UNCLE THAT THEY WOULD NOT ALLOW YOU ANYTHING BUT BED REST FOR 2 WEEKS. I WAS UP AND WALKING AROUND THE SAME DAY I HAD MY KIDS. AS FAR AS EVE GOES JUST GIVE HER SOME TIME TO ADJUST--GIRLS ARE SO DIFFERENT THAN BOYS IN THEIR TUDES AND HOW THEY DEAL WITH THINGS. I CALL IT DRAMA.LOL AND TAKE CARE

I did experience the same reaction with my girl. Same agedifference (19 months). It took about aweek to settle. She loved her "baby" brother but also took up nursing to be the baby again. Tandom nursed for a week or so NOT BY CHOICE just did not wanther to feel sad or unwanted in my lap, you know whart I mean? She still gets a tad jealous when he starts crawling to mny lap.

Glad the boys gottoplay in the snow and Rob was able to stay home. Amen to relaxing and truly take it easy. Reaaly need too! :)

Eve looks like a professional holding her new sister!

Oh, she's so sweet! I'm glad you are taking it easy - even happier that you CAN! What great sons to carry the load! And hubby too!

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
