A great thing happened this week: The pediatrician's office called and said that their Similac rep had been by the office and he dropped off six sample bottles of NeoSure formula. (This is the formula that the boys are supposed to have two bottles of every day until they are nine months old.) They told me I could come get all six bottles, and that if he came back by before their two month appointment, they would give us the formula that he leaves then. It is about $8 a bottle, so that just saved me $50! Have I mentioned how much I love our pediatrician and her staff? I love these pictures of the boys. Aaron put them in the boppy together after one of their feedings. They were kind of sitting on top of each other, but I think they liked it. They haven't slept this well in a little while now! (William is on the left, Jonathan is on the right.) I thought that William looked so cute in this picture. He looks like he is deep in thought! Aaron got out the swing that was Emma's when she was a baby. It plays little songs while it swings. We put it in the basement when we aren't using it. Today Aaron came up from the basement and said, "You have to go down and see Emma." So I went down stairs, and half way down the stairs I could hear the music playing. I got further down the stairs and there she sat, pretending to be asleep and rocking in the swing. This is a picture of our new patio set that we got last weekend. I love the wrought iron patio furniture like this. It makes me think of my Nannie and sitting on the front porch at the farm house. So, I insisted on getting this kind (not to mention it was cheaper than some of the other sets, and of course, I was on a budget.) Anyway, we put it out on the back patio, and we have really enjoyed having it out there. Aaron ate his breakfast out there every morning the past week, and we have had dinner out there a few nights this week as well. We love our yard and all the pretty trees out there. We also have tons of squirrels and birds that Emma tries to "sneak" (that is what she says when she wants to sneak up on someone or something).
We are getting pretty settled in around here. We sure do love having these boys here, and we always love all the cute things that Emma comes up with. Oh, I do have to put one Emma story on here: My brother Russell is living with us (don't know if I have mentioned that before or not) and he and Emma fight over who gets to watch the tv. Lately when Emma wants to watch a show and Russ won't let her, she will come to me and say (in a slightly crying voice), "You need to say abra cadabra to Russell." Apparently she thinks that this will magically make him let her have her way. So, she has been on the "abra cadabra" kick lately. The other day I was standing at the counter and she was playing with the picture of Jesus with the children that she got from church last Sunday. I had my back to her, and heard,"Abra Cadabra, Jesus disappear!" as she covered Jesus' face with a toy. I have thought about this several times over the last week and I crack up every time I think of that!
That is all for today. Have a great week!
