Mr. Mailman was good to me again!
Lamar brought in a package today when he checked the mail, and this time it was my friend Early Bird who blogs at My Gentle Retreat who sent me a lovely gift package.
Well, me and Emmy, of course. Cecil and Sue were here today and they both agreed that all the dieting in the world is not gonna make me fit in these itty bitty clothes, LOL! ;-)
Those sisters are loving but blunt, ain't they? Sometimes there's more blunt than love involved. :-)
Early Bird sent me a sweet card, a brag book for pictures and such, some teeny little socks and sweet little pink sneakers, some darlin' little caps and a fun purple t-shirt that says, "Lil' Gals Rule!" She says the shoes and socks are for Emmy to wear on our fishing trips. I'm hoping we have lots of those to look forward to in the future.
Right now both the socks and shoes are too big for Emmy, but it won't be long before she can wear them. The little shirt is too big right now, a 12-months size, but that was the smallest she could get and Emmy will grow into it in no time, I'm sure.
Thank you, dear Early Bird! I love every adorable thing! Even more, thank you for thinking of me and Miss Emmy and for being our friend.Jessica went back to her doctor on Monday for another checkup and I'm relieved and happy to report that all her swelling is gone and her blood pressure is back to normal! Praise the Lord and thank you all for your prayers on her behalf!
Emmy was asleep so they didn't weigh her. They have to strip them off to weigh them when they're this small because even their clothing can make a lot of difference in their weight at this stage. Emmy is doing well with her formula and breast milk right now with little or no spitting up, thank goodness.I mentioned that Cecil and Sue were here on Monday. A friend of ours dropped by and we all visited together all afternoon then Cecil and I had a ladies meeting at church Monday night. That was my day. I didn't do a thing other than that. I still need to do a lot around here, but right now I just don't feel like doing anything and I can't get motivated.
That's okay, though, because dear Bev is doing enough for us both, I think. Talk about cleaning and purging! She has set herself some lofty goals for the next several weeks and way beyond that. Good for you, Bev, but don't wait on me 'cause I don't know when I'll get the point of actually, you know - cleaning and purging - and not just blogging about it.
Sweet Barb has a wedding coming up in about a month. No, not HER, silly, her daughter Mandy. She also just found out her adorable grandson Cameron has juvenile diabetes and they are just now settling into keeping his insulin regulated and keeping Cameron healthy. You can read about Mandy's wedding shower and Cameron's diabetes both HERE. Barb just almost killed herself cleaning house for Mandy's wedding shower. And I do mean CLEANING HOUSE. Not like I clean house, but washing curtains and baseboards, actually moving furniture and cleaning carpets, all that jazz.
So, if I write about other people cleaning and purging does that almost count as me actually cleaning and purging myself? Yes? No? I thought so. *Sigh*......
I wish everyone a wonderful week. May you love and be loved.
