The Past Few Weeks...

I knew it had been a while since I last updated, but I didn't realize it was over a month!  Sorry!
Christian likes helping when he can...
 He ran into his room one day and fell, hitting his head on a stool, 
got a huge gash in his head that bled pretty badly, what a trooper...
 
Our first walk with the girls (they might be too big for this now)...
 
Daddy and His Gals...

Flying a kite with Grandma...

He really enjoyed holding Jadah...
 Woo Hoo!
The girls were dedicated at church, they are gifts on loan from God!
 So happy!
 Went with my mom and my kids to MI to visit her family.  Had a wonderful time!
 Christian loved riding the gator! (Thanks Becca and Daniel[aka "boy"]!)
Farmer Christian...
 My Grandpa is so amazed by twins... he really enjoyed this!
 My Grandma with the girls...

Life is going well.  I stay busy and don't get out much. Simon's been busy at work but does a wonderful job helping me at home when he's here.  It was rainy all week, I'm ready for nice weather so I can get outside, and hopefully attempt another walk with all 3.  The girls are pretty much sleeping through the night and eating 6 times each day.  They're cooing and starting to smile (finally!).  The girls and myself ended up getting thrush (which also happened with Christian), so we're finishing up treatment.  But through a long and hard (and quite painful) process, I've decided to slowly transition to formula (never thought I'd say that!).  I'm pumping 4 times a day, using what I had in the freezer, and giving formula before bed.  Doing this (versus breastfeeding) has greatly diminished the stress on myself AND our whole family.  It was pret-ty rough there for a couple of weeks (explaining the lack of blog posts).  Things are going much better now.

I'm pretty much back to normal physically.  In the first 6 weeks after the girls were born, I lost over 40 pounds!  (sounds like a fluke weight loss program).  But I have an unlovely pudge that doesn't seem like it will part easily.  Shoot, I might have to actually work out to get rid of it. 

Anyway, I have some things to do!  I also took on an interior design project last week (a continuation of one I did last summer), so I will be trying to find time for that also.  Lord help me!
LOST finale tonight!  It's finally over. :)

Don't feel guilty at all for switching to formula! I'm sure I would have done the same thing if I'd had a toddler to take care of plus thrush!
And I was the same as you with weight loss- took off 40 lbs in 6 weeks (but kept a tummy pudge!)

Ahhh You girls are beautiful and growing fast!

Tummy pudge, Yeah that is something that needs worked off LOL But it is nice to have your shape back at least.

Hope the weather gets nice so you can enjoy a walk with your little ones.
