The Past Few Days

We enjoyed the last days of Jayson's vacation just hanging out and trying to settle back into life.

Jayson and Marlie have been practicing a lot of t-ball skills

We're getting used to having 5 people at the dinner table
Staring contests are fun . . .

Followed by giggles :)

We attempted to have our friend snap newborn pics . . . but of course, that's the one time Evan had no interest in sleeping!

Our 1st outing as a family of 5 was to Marlie's t-ball practice

Jayson and the girls went to Home Depot on Saturday

And made tulip flower planters

We also took a family trip to the doc on Saturday morning. Evan had to be re-checked for his weight. Since he isn't doing the greatest with the whole b-feeding thing, I have to pump and use bottles too . . . once we figured that out, he gained 5oz in 1 day. And Samantha, not to be ignored, has woken up in the middle of the night for 2 nights in a row now with a cough and a 102.8 fever . . . only to then wake up and be completely fine both mornings - no fever. WEIRD. I do so love going to the doctor to have her say "Both kids are great and completely healthy Mrs. Crandall . . . that will be $50" . . .

And today is Mother's Day . . . I think I got my present last week in the form of my beautiful son. Unfortunately, Jayson has to work all day today (the beauty of being off for the last 9 days) - so while I would love to say that I am having a nice relaxing Mother's Day, that's just not the case this year . . . but I am lucky enough to have beautiful weather and 3 perfect little faces to look at all day and remind me why I am fortunate enough to be able to celebrate this holiday . . .
