My Public Expressions Of Gratitude-

I just need to give a public shout out to these two for putting up with me for the past couple of months. Despite the fact that I have been a lazy, bad mother/wife, they have done their parts to make life pretty easy on me. Above is my hubby painting Hannah's nails. She loves to have her nails painted and because I was unable to do it at that time, Scott took the time out of his busy schedule to help her out. It's seriously a really sweet picture. So thank you to my hubby for being so patient with me. And even though Hannah has been a serious brat toward me this week because her Grandma is in town (please excuse the word "brat," but she truly has been), she has mostly been an angel for me. Well, except for the fact that she rarely takes naps for me anymore (although I got her to take one today, Whippi!!) and she has been getting up around 7:15am when she used to get up around 8:30am. But other than that, she's been a good girl, and I am grateful for her patience with me. I love these guys so much and I could not do this whole pregnancy thing without their patience and love for me, so thank you, thank you.

And finally, I'd also like to thank my mother-in-law for being here this week and deep cleaning my entire apartment, providing dinner for us every night, letting me sleep in until 10:30am, and playing with Hannah. It has truly been a dream come true for me (except for the part about Hannah being a brat toward me this week because she wants nothing to do with me).

Anyway, I just had to publicly thank these people in my life for being there for me. This sickness will be gone soon, and I will be my normal self again. HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY!

I will post another pregnancy picture in a couple of days because I am literally growing every single day, so stay tuned for that!

Miss you-I'm excited to see pictures.

I love the picture of Hannah and Scott. After months of Jon getting the bad end of the stick, Maddie finally decided to hang out with Jon yesterday and it sure was nice to have a rest. I bet it was nice to have Julia around. Glad to hear you all are doing well.

Oh Maran, you are NOT a bad mother. You are pregnant... with twins. Rest rest rest. Nobody with die from eating cold cereal for dinner for a few months. You just take care of you.

So glad that Julia was able to spoil you and Hannah and Scott! Everyone understands (especially those of us who have had morning sickness) how hard it is to do everything when you are pregnant and sick. So, be easy on yourself. We just want all to go well with this pregnancy. Hannah Banana will be just fine. She is giving you a small taste of whats to come when the twinners arrive. :) Sorry but true. We will all love her throught it! Can't wait for the photo. I'll be in AZ so I'll look at it on Jen's computer. Love ya!

Thank you for letting me come and help out! Being so far away feels terrible sometimes because I can't do more for you and the family. I love you all so much, and I am so grateful for my time with Hannah. She is the light of my life. I miss her so much, my sweet Maran, thank you for your kind words, and remember to be good and kind to yourself. I wish you could see what the rest of us see in you - my son is one lucky guy! Hugs and kisses - Julia

How nice to have Julia out! I wish I could be there to help too.... it's so hard to do anything when you feel like crap. Scott is such a good dad/hubby!

It's so sad when the little ones stop taking naps. Ella still takes one, which is sooo nice! The other two stopped way earlier. Hope your getting some rest. love ya.
