Cabin Fever

I have been recovering now for two weeks from my c-section. I am still a little sore, but overall doing quite good. People from church have been graciously providing meals for us every night. I cannot explain how much that has helped our family. When I have to actually start cooking dinner again, or even think about what to make my days will surely be different. A HUGE thanks to everyone who has brought us meals since we've been home from the hospital!

Tony has gone to work 3 1/2 days this week, he will be off tomorrow. I have been at home by myself during the days with the two kiddos. I am actually surprised at how well things have been going. I am not sure what we would do without Noggin (the 24 hour preschool channel) during the day. At least it's somewhat educational- as much as Television CAN be these days. I justify the TV because I know it won't be like this forever. It sure helps when I can just rest and take care of Caroline while Tobin plays in the living room with me, and has the soft sound of the TV in the background. He has been doing a lot of "coloring" this week, as well. Our Fridge is FULL of his creations.

Anyway, we have been couped up in the house during all this cold weather, so Tuesday when Tony got home from work, I made him go with us on a walk around the neighborhood. We all got bundled up and headed outside. Tobin was so ready to get outside and play, and I needed some fresh air, as well. I thought I'd document our first family walk with our awesome double stroller (courtesy of Craig's list) and family of four.

Thanks for all of the support and prayers. I covet your prayers still, as we are adjusting to our "new normal". Thanks for keeping up with our family!
