Lucy seems to be on the upswing of things. We went back to the doctor and her ears are clear so after her medicine giving her a RAW, blistery bottom we can hopefully get her back to normal. Hopefully we will get some pics of all 3 girls together this week!!

We were quickly thrown into life with 3 kiddos! We were totally thrown off by Daphne's earlier than expected entrance. Kevin and I were going to use Monday (he had the day off, but the girls still had MDO) to clean our entire house. Knowing this was the plan, I basically didn't do anything last week. I kept up the laundry, cooked ahead, and rested - while doing school with Norah and just playing. Clearly our Monday was spent in an entirely different way than expected.
We came home on Tuesday - late morning. Tuesday night, Lucy started throwing up. Welcome home to us. We have tried to keep Daphne completely away from Lucy. Lucy is broken hearted over this. She says, "I better now. I see my new sister." She is constantly asking where Dahpne is and what she is doing. We have so many pictures of Norah and Lucy the first few days Lucy was home from the hospital and we have NONE of Norah, Lucy and Daphne. Lucy seems to be feeling a little better, but you can tell she still isn't 100%. Thankfully, my mom has been here to help with Lucy.
Daphne is doing great! She is a great eater! As with most newborns, she sleeps constantly! At the doctor today she weighed 6 lbs, 4.5 oz. She seems so tiny, but I think you just forget that all newborns seem tiny. She will probably be like her sisters and be on the small side of the scale.
Those of you who know Norah and Lucy well, know that they can't live without their silky blankies. We found one for Daphne that is different from Norah or Lucy's, but still very girly! I had eyed it at Kohl's before she was born, but since we didn't know what we were having, I decided to wait. This blanket was on clearance so it was gone at the Kohl's nearest our house, but the Kohl's by our doctor's office had one left. So now Daphne has her own silky blankie, too.

So - if you are still interested in My Giveaway - you still have time to enter. Since our new little one decided to come early and I'm still in the hospital, i am going to extend the giveaway until Saturday, the 24th.

You read that right - she. We had a little girl today at about 1:35 pm. I was scheduled to have a c-section next Thursday, the 22nd, but God had other plans.

In honor of my 30th birthday and the launching of Foreign Language Friends, I am offering a giveaway. I will cover the cost of 1 month of membership at Foreign Language Friends. If you have kids ages 3-8 - this is for you. Also, if you have a 2-year old, it would be great for you too, as long as you sit at the computer with them and handle the mouse (this is what we are doing with Lucy). So if you are interested in giving your kids the opportunity to learn Spanish at the ideal age - check it out!!

As we get ready to have this baby, I would like to try to cook some meals ahead to put in the freezer. So, I'm looking for some suggestions. I would love to get some recipes that your kids like that can be made ahead and frozen!

Wow! It's hard to believe that it is 2009! I'm not big on New Year's resolutions, but I do have a few goals in mind for 2009.
