Slides And Savings

We had a great weekend, and a crazy week so far!  Daddy and I took the babies to the park and played on Sunday!  The babies got to go down the slide with Mommy and Daddy for the first time!  I think they liked it!  I know I thought it was great fun!

Sunday at 7pm, I went grocery shopping with coupons.  Guess what time I finished?  10pm!!!!! It was BRUTAL.  My brain hurt so badly by the time I was finished, I think it turned to mush momentarily.  I never knew grocery shopping could make one so tired!  It exhausted me.  Poor Raj.  He called me at 9:40.  He was worried I had been in a car accident or hurt or something.  By the time he called, I was truly in the “zone”!  Plus, I knew Publix closed at 10pm, so I had to hurry!  He was pretty shocked I was still shopping, but once he knew I was fine, we hung up!

Here is the most important part……………

I spent $161…..I saved $157!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you believe that?!?!?!?!?!  I am still pretty shocked.  I know there are ways to save more, but for my first try, I am pleased.  Do you know the coolest part?  I did not buy one store brand item!  It was so neat to come home with brand name foods for cheaper than store brands!

My best friend Amanda from Nashville came in late Sunday night.  She spent a crazy two days with me, and now she is gone.  I am pretty sad.  I miss her.  However, I will get to see her when she comes down for the babies’ birthday party.  OMG!  Can you believe we are talking about their first birthday?  What had happened to the past year?  It has flown by way too quickly!

I love you all.

Daddy’s Day Off Work!!

We had such a fun day today!!!  I LOVE spring!  It is a wonderful time of the year!!  Today, Daddy had off work, so we went to Town Center Park and played!  It was so, so much fun!  We packed the babies up in the stroller and walked over.  It is only about a mile away from our house.  Daddy had not walked through the tunnel yet, so that was fun!  The tunnel for everyone who does not live in Suwanee is new and goes under the railroad tracks.  It connects “Old Town Suwanee” with Town Center Park.  We live in old town, so this is great for us!!  On with my story, so we went over to the park!

The babies had never played in the grass, so that was fun to watch!!  Maggie and Evie loved it.  Josh was not too sure about it!  It was hysterical to watch!!  He did not want  to crawl in it!  After we played for a while, we had a “picnic” and fed the babies.  It was great.  Daddy and I went to Rita’sfor some ice cream before going home.  It was so excited they had fat-free, sugar-free italian ice for 2 points on Weight Watchers!  We all loved every moment of being together and out!  It was all around one of the best days in a long time!

After we got home, I realized my biggest mistake of the day.  I never thought to put sunscreen on the babies.  It never even crossed my mind.  My poor little white boy now has pink legs and a pink face.  Miss Maggie also has pink cheeks.  My little brown bean did not pink up at all!  It is so funny to see how different are all three of my kids.  I did go to the store and buy sunscreen tonight.  I will be using it whenever we got out from now on!  I hope we go out a lot!!

On another note, guess what wild Miss Maggie did?  She climbed the stairs!  Man, I have got to get this house baby proofed!!  I am just glad I caught her before she fell.  Granted, I think she would have probably made it to the top of the stairs had I not caught her!   

Look at where I caught Maggie!

I Love This Picture!

Last night, Raj and I were sitting on the couch with the babies playing.  It was such a special time for us.  I had to get up for a minute, so when I did, I took this picture of Daddy and the babies.  t just makes me smile every time I look at it, and that is quite frequently!  I love watching him with them.  It is so precious.

Ginny is out sick.

Hi All:

Ginny is sick today. I’ll spare you all the details, but lets just say she is miserable.  Poor woman, first Maggie and now herself. It’s just one battle after another. Being a Mom is a *tough* job.  Ginny will be sleeping the rest of the day. I don’t know if she will get up for anything other than going to the bathroom.

Maggie appears to be doing well. We put her back on Reglan and now her formula is staying down, in fact, she has not thrown up since the 10pm feed. Feeding the babies is really difficult right now because Maggie is on an every-three-hour schedule, and Evie and Josh are on an every-four-hour schedule. That equals a whole lot of no sleep.

On a side note, Ginny said some of you non-Wordpress users were having issues posting comments. I’m guessing you all are more familiar with the Blogspot method. I’ve lowered the security a little to make it easier to post, but I have to be careful or we’ll get SPAMed to death. :) I have also renamed the blog to “Ginny’s Blog” because I’m not really a blogger.

We are parrents!

Hi all!  We are now parents. Ginny is a trooper and held the babies for 32 weeks. So… Without further ado, we are proud to announce the birth of:

Evelyn (Evie) Rose Wurttemberg – 3 lbs 14 oz – Born at 3:20 pm
Margaret (Maggie) Hayes Wurttemberg – 3 lbs 8.5 oz – Born at 3:21 pm
Joshua (Josh) Paul Wurttemberg – 3 lbs, 13 oz – Born at 3:22 pm

All of the babies are healthy and breathing on their own. They are hooked to a CPAP machine to maintain positive airway pressure. Not to worry, this is a similar CPAP device that is used for people with speep apnia. The nurses are surprised at how big the babies are for being 32 weeks old. The babies are in incubators right now to help them maintain their body temperature and to keep a slightly higher humidity. 

Ginny is doing well after the c-section. She is awake, alert, and hungry. :)

Mother’s Day excitement

Raj here… Ginny has been having contractions about every five minutes. She is uncomfortable and she says the contractions hurt. The doctor has ordered mag, and endocen to try to stop or slow the contractions. The doctor has also had the nurses give Ginny a shot of morphene for the contraction pain. Everyone is hoping the contractions stop and the babies get to stay in a few more weeks.

Hotel Northside…

Ginny being attended to.Hey all – Raj here. Ginny started having contractions every seven minutes and she was feeling pressure. Ginny had a doctors appointment today and was going down to the hospital any way. Good thing she went… her cervix was only 10mm and had started funneling.  Ginny is not happy about being here, she’s plugged into various devices and tubes coming out of her. It’s now after 11pm and the contractions have slowed waaaay down. The nurse gave her a sleeping pill, so hopefully she will sleep soon. 

 More updates later…

Gnome behind the scenes…

Hi all… I don’t post often but I just wanted to say HI!  Oh, and I made a few changes behind the scenes. Ginny was getting a lot of SPAM via the blog software. I posted the issue we were having on the WordPress web site, and within minutes someone had replied and showed me how to disable trackbacks. I also upgraded our WordPress blog software to the latest version and enabled an anti-SPAM plugin called Aksimet. Hopefully Ginny’s SPAM issue will be resolved. Advice to any husbands out there… a pregnant, frustrated, annoyed wife is deadly. :)  Keep your pregnant wife’s e-mail inbox SPAM free. ha-ha!

We have pictures! Joe first. :)

I was able to get the picture uploading for the blog working. Ginny will be very happy. She has been itching to upload pictures. The first picture will be of Joe shaved. He just tossed up a nice big juicy hairball on the wood floor. He much prefers the carpet, but I *moved* him quickly to a non-absorbent surface.Joe shaved I don’t think we have any big plans this weekend. We are going to have a “Hot-dogs and Wine” dinner this afternoon with our neighbors, Diane, Nicole and two others that I don’t remember their names right now. That should be fun. Oh Happy Birthday EmmaClaire Mitchell!! Big 3!  Happy Weekend everyone!
