Saying Goodbye to Nana

Well, Nana left on Saturday.  She has been with us everyday since we brought Will home (8 days). She has been so much help to us.  She has cleaned my house top to bottom, made dinner every night and waited on me hand and foot.  She also provided me with much needed emotional support since I had the post baby blues during her stay. The boys were sad to see he go too.  Finn told me numerous times during the day and he missed Nana.  He even woke me up at 1:00 a.m. to tell me he was sad because he missed Nana so much.  So Nana, if you are reading this - Thank you for staying with us and taking such good care of us.  I needed you more that I could have imagined. (I have a tendency to think that I don't ever need help).

Saturday was a pretty laid back day.  I stuck to my feeding schedule while the boys played close by.  Later that evening Michael and I watched a Game of Thrones.  

Will's new sleeper from Gran.  We are trying to keep him very warm so that he won't expend too much energy shivering.  Since he is so little he has a hard time keeping warm. 

The night was pretty tough. I think that I slept about 3.5 hours.  I was exhausted on Sunday morning. We did manage to get all three boys up and fed to church on time.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…


Today Finn and Sam put on their new Upward  uniforms. Sam took one look at Finn and said “Finn, do you want to be twin basketball brothers?”  Even though Sam said it with as much sincerity and excitement me had in his little body, Finn respectfully declined.
Instead they danced like ladies and gentlemen danced in days of yore. They looked hilariously awkward.
