I am running out of clever post titles as you can tell. Really, this post is just about our week so far.
The best thing so far this week is baby Kara is home from the hospital! Praise the Lord. Considering what kind of surgery she had, for her to be home already is nothing short of a miracle. God is good!
As I mentioned already, Carter started swim lessons again so we're doing that every morning at 8:45. What was I thinking? The kids are both sleeping until 8:00 these days (as long as Carter will stay in his own bed at least) so we're rushing to get out of the house by 8:30. Theo was able to come today and yesterday so while he was with the kids, I managed 30 minutes on the elliptical! Oh well, it's only for 2 weeks and then we are off to Louisiana!! Can't wait!
Olivia is not doing too fabulously with her bottle feedings. I think I'm going to try pumping and giving her that in a cup and see how she does. She's going to have to give up nursing...eventually and the sooner the better as far as I'm concerned!
The weather has been so nice lately with only a little rain. So while Olivia napped (for 2.5 hours!!) yesterday, Carter played outside with his friends and Theo and I sat outside and played a game of this:
We are really trying to make an effort to spend more quality time together, just the two of us, and the four of us. This has something we have struggled with since we got married. We are often together and in the same room or at least in the same vicinity. But being in the same room, doesn't neccessarily count as quality time. So we are spending less time on the internet, less time with the tv on and already I can see a difference in our relationship with each other and with the kids. Slowly but surely we are reprioritizing things in our lives. I believe God will bless us for it.
