Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real
A BABY AND HER BROTHERS
And some great comments from the boys ~
Luke : "Mom, do you know why I love your insides"? (I'm thinking some sort of poetry like, 'you love me ; you're kind ; you make good food'). Answer? "You grew us baby Addie". Definitely poetic!
Joseph, patting my still-rounded midsection : "Mo' baby?"
Ian : "Can you guys start another baby today so that we can have another one in 9 months?" (I thought the teens would D.I.E. !)
John, after arriving home from exercising the horses for Aurora Equine Therapy : "Jessie (the horse) tripped and fell over and I fell, too, and Debbie said that it was a good thing I was using a Western saddle because the horn kept Jessie from rolling onto me and breaking my back." The other kids breathed in unison, "Cool"!
And the best news of all? After 1 week of giving her digestive enzymes before every nursing, Addie has put on 14 ounces ~ just about a pound in a week!
So all these comments are what I'd share on Facebook, if I wasn't staying away for Lent ; also if I could find the time to sit down and write a real, polished post about something important. Pictures and funnies are all I can manage.
More real life here.
