Still here

You all are too much. So many thanks for the phone calls, texts and emails about my sister. I am so sorry to leave you hanging this week, but the good news is I have the following to report:

After a harrowing two weeks, my sister is

A) still pregnant

B) at HOME

C) 30 weeks and 1 day!

The babies are doing beautifully at more than 3 pounds each, and she is being monitored closely for her special pregnancy brew of mild pre-eclampsia, ICP (a pregnancy-induced liver disease) and Epstein-Barr virus, probably a little gift from the kids in her classroom. We never would have thought she would be either A, B or C at this point, (and neither did a team full of doctors), and we are all so grateful those little ones have some more time in Club Utero. Your prayers and good wishes are clearly working, thank you! Hopefully the next update you’ll hear will be about two near term or full term babies born early this summer.


In the meantime, on a completely different topic, I also have a family waiting patiently for their preview, so here you go:

This little lovely was all dressed in her Easter best, and lasted about 2.5 seconds before pulling off her shoes and eating them.


This whole endeavor was followed a few minutes later by full-on toe nibbling and then full-body rolling, two of my all-time favorite baby activities. Little Lizzie is particularly good at them.






Her big brother Brandon wasn’t as enamored of the whole photo thing as she was.


He was having a Zen kind of day, swinging and playing in the garden, and wasn’t too interested in us.


But we got him. 🙂

Michelle and family, thank you for having me on such a beautiful spring day!
