(I wrote this post on the 7th and forgot to post it, so it is old, but the pictures are cute)
I want to snuggle all my babies!
This is my selfish post. Everyone keeps asking how Brad and I are doing. Honestly, we are doing okay. My sister can't believe I'm not bored out of my mind, but the days pass rather quickly. When Logan is awake he has both of our undivided attention. We have gotten pretty creative in entertaining him especially when we were on quarantine and couldn't leave our room. It is a blessing that he likes watching TV, and these cribs make for some pretty rockin' peek-a-boo! I have only read about 20 pages in my book- I usually blog when he is asleep. I like keeping you all informed, but it is also therapeutic for me. I don't even know what day it is today, so if I tried to remember all of this to write down later I would forget everything!
But I miss my Ashlyn and Tanner like crazy. We talk to them in the morning when they wake up, and at night before bed. Some days they are silly and crazy. And some days they are somber and quiet. They have just started asking us when we will be home. I cry a lot after I talk to them. But I wouldn't change it. They are having such a great time with their Grandmas and Grandpas. They are spoiled and are keeping busy.
Ashlyn always loved taking care of Logan (a little too much). She has had to find different ways to use those "mothering" traits. My parents dog Haddie is filling that gap with Logan away. Ashlyn loves Haddie. She dresses her, tries to carry her, snuggles with her, and Haddie loves it all. My mom says when Ashlyn gets sad Haddie always cheers her up.
She is also taking great care of Tanner.
I am getting a little bit of dog therapy here too. This sweet poodle is a therapy dog. His owner comes every Wednesday just to the cardiac floor to visit the patients and families.
