My mom's surgery went well, and she's recovering nicely. Physically, anyway. Mentally, she's going crazy! My mom's not one to sit still for very long, now she's stranded in one spot, and she's not happy about it. She mastered the crutches, and she thinks she can do anything with them...until she tries and gets so frustrated. But her knee is doing great. ;)
I had a good time while I was there, I got to see my family, including my great-grandmother who will be 90 next month and is doing fairly well. I love when the kids get to spent time with her, I wish they could know her like I do, but they don't see her near enough. Tanner was born on my aunt's birthday, and they got to celebrate their birthday together for the first time, she was so excited about that.
On my way home, I stopped for the night at my MIL's, and I had a nice time there, too. The kids got to see their great-grandmother on that side as well.
The drive wasn't as uncomfortable as I thought it would be, thank goodness. Morning sickness has let up considerably, so I felt pretty good while I was gone. My belly popped out while I was away, DH was happy to see that (Couldn't button any of the jeans that I had packed.) Kind of funny...he was so worried that I would feel baby's first movements while I was gone and he would miss them. I felt it for the first time yesterday and called him right away. He told me, "Last night while you were sleeping I had my hand on your belly and I thought I felt it move a couple of times." So as it turns out, DH felt the baby move BEFORE I did! LOL! Worked out nicely.
Melanie, I received the frog package. It didn't get here until Monday. I'll probably get it out next Monday; we'll spend the weekend with him. :)
Jenna, I've been reading to catch up and wanted to tell you CONGRATULATIONS on your new little girl!!! I thought about you all week while I was gone, but couldn't get online to check on you. I'm so happy for you and Tom!
Kriste, I love your house, it's so sweet looking. :) Thanks for the pictures. Did your brother make it home safely from Bali?
Have a great Thursday everyone!
