I am tree-free!! YeeHaw!

Yesterday went well. My wonderful mother-in-law read my blog post yeaterday, and feeling sorry for me, decided to come over and help me out. First, the home-visiting nurse came to weigh Drew, and he had gained four ounces in 48 hours! Woo Hoo, the feedings are going well and he is getting enough to eat. As Dora would say, Excellente! I don't know if that's spelled right, but I'm quoting a kid, so spelling doesn't count.

Lori came just as the nurse was finishing up, and we got the tree packed up everything put away. I am so glad to not have to stare at the tree anymore, but now I can see the windows again which just reminds me how badly they need to be cleaned. Oh, well, can't win 'em all, right?

I learned something valuable today. If the twins are napping, do not change Drew in my room, as he will scream and wake up the twins. Then, the twins will not go back to sleep and I will have three cranky boys. Which is hard, since the youngest cranky boy likes to be held, and the oldest is currently constipated and wants to be rocked, and the middle cranky boy is sneaky when no one is looking. It is really hard to hold a newborn, rock a two-year old, and keep track of a sneaky boy all at the same time.

Tonight we are looking forward to relaxing and catching up on some of what's in the DVR. Wow, what we look forward to on a Friday night...

I think you would look great w/a sparkly tiara for all the multi tasking you do. Life is sure busy w/little ones but add twins and a infant and you deserve a crown. Maybe a pretty one w/sparkles. Ask Emma I bet she would make you one.
