I love my kids....

Owen is such a happy little man. He woke up the other day from his nap with huge smiles for mommy. I'm so blessed to be able to stay at home with my children. I would fall apart if I had to leave them with a babysitter everyday. They are truly the best thing that has ever happened to me. Owen is growing up so fast and does new stuff every day. The other night I asked him to get ready for his bath and to get ready by taking his clothes off. He immediately sat on the floor and tried so hard to take off his pants and shirt. He understands more than I expect sometimes. Kaebrie is starting to smile and look around to see what is going on. She is now out of the newborn diapers and most of her preemie clothes are tight. This last week I feel like all I have done is nurse her. She is going through the sixth week growth spurt. I love my children so much and wouldn't trade being a mommy for anything in the world. It's a blessing to know that I can be with them forever.

Infected? Not sure?

I decided I had to post for my poor finger in case down the road I am left with some sort of scar. In February, Jeff and I celebrated our 5th anniversary. Jeff got me two bands to go around my beautiful wedding ring. The morning of our anniversary he left my ring on my shelf in our closet. When I saw it I was in such shock and so excited to put it on that I immediately shoved it on my finger (even though it was too small and I hadn't gotten it back on since pregnancy with Owen). I got pregnant in March with Kaebrie and didn't have troubles with my finger until the last month of pregnancy. Not to mention all the fluids I was filled with both times I was in the hospital that made me swell. I tried every ointment and lotion to get my ring off with. It just wouldn't budge. My sister Melissa tried oil and soaking my finger in ice water. Both left my finger throbbing and hurting. Jeff researched on the Internet and found that we should try Windex. My finger hurt so bad that I would cringe at the thought of putting cleaner on my sore finger. So Wednesday night I was able to finally get it off. I think the cold weather had a part in this? I am hoping it will heal up soon and no scar will be left behind.
