Annabelle 5 1/2 weeks

Facebook feelings on the day:There is definitely a bonus if you have family near to drop them off now and then. The important thing is looking at the spit up stains, crys, and e...ndless "Mom, Mom, Mom" as things we'll miss one day and last just a short time...all part of a great journey with endless rewards you can never buy. Tough part is you can't buy the lending hand you need sometimes either.

Can you tell my fabulous husband made me dinner and took two feedings last night? I didn't get unbroken sleep bc I stil woke up for every one, but I got more sleep than I have in many many weeks...and that's definitley a BONUS!

A Day of Rest & Halloween Prep

With just three days to Halloween, William has been enjoying playing "itch" and wearing his "ee-een" shirts. With Halloween outfits from Mary Kate, William, and Addison, Anna Claire has been covered for every day of the week on her Halloween attire.  Anna Claire has been such a good baby so far - not really crying until after she was two weeks old and even then only if she is hungry and we didn't hear her grunts.  Until this week, she hadn't cried with colic but last night was her worst night yet:  She was up every hour except for the 11th and 7th.  I was thankful both she and William slept in until 8:20.

William also enjoyed opening a package from his Nanny Stacey.  He loved his Halloween gift but wasn't too interested in Anna Claire's gift.  Mom Mom & My Dad thought it was too cute.

The end of Anna Claire's 2nd week: Just us 4

 MeMaw left this morning for the drive home.  The boys make Mommy breakfast:  We're all up early and the air is crisp.

William makes eggs in his pot.

William really really likes Annabelle holding his "tumb"

He really is a good big brother: Loves to help and trys to tend to her.

William's feet have been bothering we went shopping for a size 9 in his shoe stash.  Good thing Mommy shops ahead.

Georgia State Fair

Daddy took William to the Georgia State Fair, which just happened to be near our new home.  William came home stinky and happy - glowing that he had fed the giraff a carrot, watched the pig races, seen sea lions, and held the baby joey (really a Wallaby but who cares with a face like that).
While the boys went to the fair, the girls stayed home and rested.  Definitely a time Mommy wished she was there or had sent the camera...
