Here we are ...

Here I am. I seem to be blinking in and out as far as blogging is concerned. I don't think I ever posted a picture of SweeTart with Dr. C (the man who was not "on call" the night she was delivered but he showed up in my room bright and early the day after she was born!) Here it is:

What else has been going on? We survived our first Memorial Day holiday. Barely. We started out at the V-Town parade which was scheduled to start at 10 a.m. I guess we arrived around 9 - 9:30. SweeTart was okay, for a little bit after we arrived. Then she decided that it was time to eat. I wasn't exactly prepared to feed her there on the street, by bottle or otherwise. I had packed bottles but they were two blocks away in the truck. I was not nursing her right there. I still can't really nurse her in front of people. I don't know why - I am just too uncomfortable doing it. But we made it through the parade and I was able to feed her once we got back to the truck. Whew. A ride to the shop for a pee-stop on our way to my sister's house for her annual picnic and Beverly's parade which is now thrown in honor of my niece's birthday every year. Kind of like how the V-Town fireworks are for Jerry's birthday every year! ;-)

Karen did a great job (ok, you too Luis) with her picnic and the party. The parade usually runs itself. This is the first year in all of the years I've seen the parade from her house that my sister has actually seen the entire parade too. She's usually throwing together last minute items for the party/picnic. Kudos on a job well done. Jacqui looked fabulous too in her fancy red, white and blue dress. Here's a cute picture of her:

My kids were very good over their aunt's house - they enjoyed the parade and the party. They're already excited about next year!

Now, we're getting down to the nitty-gritty. I go back to work next Monday. While I'm looking forward to the interaction with other adults and the daily challenges my job brings, I'm not looking forward to having to pump in a nurse's office instead of just simply nursing the baby and all the fun other things that I will be missing while at work. But, I think that they need me as much as I need them right now. I've been home for almost 8 weeks, and I guess that is long enough. :-)
The kids went swimming in our neighbor's pool yesterday. Boy did they have fun!! I took pictures with my phone. Although they look good on the phone, they look horrible uploaded. So, you'll have to take my word for it! They were very cute and I'm glad that they're getting some swimming in before we leave for our annual 4th of July vacation with our family to the OBX. Twinkletoes was a little unsure of herself and it took her almost 45 mintues before she ventured into the deep end. Once DinoBoy was done whining about how "cold" the water was, he was a terrific swimmer! It was hard to get them both out of the pool and back home so that we could start dinner!! It will be a fun summer since the neighbor's said we could use the pool as often as we want. With having the baby this summer, I don't believe we'll be at the swim club as often as we were last year but we'll do our best!!
