|I love Ilse's furniture.|
|Auntie Kimberly got Ilse the scale. :) She is gaining weight! On it she weighs 8 pounds 9 ounces.|
|Aunties Kimberly and Ivy brought Ilse these balloons at the NICU when they came to visit. I saw Ilse looking at them the other day as she lay in her crib.|
|Dresses!!!! And see the drawer container on the floor? It's FULL of medical supplies. Like Kim, I have a syringe collection, and also enough of those pink hospital containers to last me a lifetime.|
And for an update on the boys:
Joey and Bam-Bam recently BOTH had birthdays. Now we have a five year old and a four year old. I personally enjoyed the time when they were both four. You should have seen the looks I got up at the NICU. And one (dumb) lady (sorry, but it was ultra true) heard they were virtual twins, heard they were a week or so apart, and replied with...... "I didn't know you could do that in one pregnancy!"
I didn't bother explaining.
It meant a whole lot to me that Mamaw planned a BD party for Bam-Bam. She orgnanized games and everything. He had a great day, but I was sad I couldn't be there. Tim got to go (the party was at Ivy's) and apparently someone took video! I just discovered it today, but I haven't gotten to watch it yet.
I did go to Joey's birthday party. It was also at Ivy's and coincided with a celebration that Ilse was home.
I didn't get to see any of their presents, so I have pretty much no idea what they got. I don't know whose is whose and what is what, and I don't know if they do either. I'm so thankful to my family who helped with all of that while I was indescribably busy.
I'm so proud of both my big boys, and I'm doubly happy that Joey knows how old he is. That's an accomplishment!
