Surviving Another Tooth Extraction . . .

Yesterday I had a tooth extraction.
It's the third tooth I've had pulled
in the past 4 years.

My oral surgeon, Dr. Woodward is wonderful.
So kind & comforting.
The amazing thing is I woke up this morning with absolutely no pain!
I hate/love taking pain medication so I'm happy I didn't need
to take a pill this morning.

Too bad I'm too old for the Tooth Fairy!
I have no doubt if she did visit old people
like me she'd leave a $100 bill under
my pillow for the wisdom tooth I lost yesterday!

3 Weeks Old . . .

Little Emma is growing!
Her weight is over 6 lbs!
She is still in the NICU because her heart rate
sometimes drops below 100. This is called Bradycardia.

We're praying she will be going home soon.

Welcoming Spring . . .

It was a cold & snowy winter!

I'm so excited that Spring has finally arrived here in Oklahoma!

Seeing this Red bud bloom outside our yard
is always a welcome sight.
Last year on the 1st day of Spring this beauty
was covered with snow.
So glad that didn't happen this year!

I found these cute polka dot bowls at Target
a few weeks ago.
Only $2.50 each!
These colors inspire me to start doing a little
decorating for the new season.
Things on my to do list . . .

bring out all my little bunny buddies . . .
Mr. Bosley Reed will be the 1st one
to come out of hiding.

Create or buy a new wreath for the front door . . .

Maybe one like this . . .

or this . . .

I'll share pictures when the Spring touches are complete.

Enjoy your first full day of Spring!

Super Moon . . .

I wasn't sure we'd be able to see the
Super Moon tonight because of
the clouds that have hung around all day,
but we saw it coming up.
This isn't the greatest picture,
but it's the best I could do with my camera.

Books & Chips . . .

Ethan spent 2 nights at our house the weekend Emma was born.

He loves books.

It's so much fun seeing him learn.

He also loves chips!

My sister saved this little bag from Ace
and filled it with Abuelo's chips.

Yep, I'm afraid he's a chip-a-holic!

Counting My Blessings . . .

The tragic stories and pictures I see on TV
about Japan are so sobering.

I have so much to be thankful for.

Continue praying for the people of Japan.

One Week Old . . .

We visited Emma last night.

She's one week old and doing very well.
They are working on feeding her from
a bottle instead of a tube through her nose.

The kids are so anxious to take her home.

but she couldn't wait!

She is in the NICU.
Please pray that her stay there won't be long.

She is so sweet and tiny!

Her hair is dark and curly!
