Right after Nick had the heart cathe done on his heart he was not able to lift anything heavy, which meant that he couldn't lift our son. This also meant that I would have to tote Andrew everywhere. The day after his procedure we needed to run to Chattanooga to buy some formula and other things for Andrew. On this particular day it was raining. We got ready to go and walked out the door. We covered up Andrew so he wouldn't get wet and started down the steps. My foot hit the first step and it kept going. I slid all the way down the steps, luckily I was able to drop Andrew's car seat on the deck. He was okay thank goodness! When we uncovered him he was just sitting there smiling.
Anyways, I was bruised everywhere. I had on a coat and I was afraid to take it off because I just knew that the skin on the back of both of my arms was in the sleeves of the coat. But I was okay......just bruised. Thank God for that! But did I mention I had bruises?? BIG BRUISES!
Well......these particular steps do not get much sun if any at all. So this green mildew (maybe mold) looking stuff grows on them. I told Nick to clean them off so someone else wouldn't do the same thing. Or for that matter ME! Ever since I fell I have been very careful not to do that again! ( I am very clumsy!)
Here comes the, "I told you so!"
Yesterday was another rainy day at our home. We didn't do very much at all. Andrew and I mostly just sat around and waited for Nick to wake up because he has been working nights. (Thank the Lord that is over!)
Anywhooooo.........I had just sat sown in the recliner to feed Andrew and Nick had decided to go and get the mail. He put on his coat and crocs and headed out the door. Right after he walked out the door I heard a huge crash outside. I really didn't know what happened. I just kept feeding Andrew. Nick came back in the door and he was complaining about how he fell down the steps. Now Nick is all the time playing tricks on me, so at first I didn't believe him. That is until he took his shirt off and I saw his back. He had fallen down the steps the same way I did except his head bounced off the porch. I probably would have done the same thing if I wouldn't have been carrying Andrew.
He said he even blacked out for a second. It's a wonder I didn't have to take him to the hospital. You could tell it hurt him pretty bad. So bad he wouldn't let me touch his back with a wash cloth.
By the way.............he is okay thank goodness but I couldn't help myself.
I just had to say,
"I told you soooooooooooooooooo!"
FYI................he only had a small lump on his head this morning and several BIG bruises!
LOVE YOU HUBBY!!!!

Well............................I honestly have to tell you that my first Mother's Day did not go so well! First of all, my hubby has been on night shift at the water plant and he was in the bed all day long, so we barely got to see each other.
Then, I had to get Andrew and myself ready for church. Which is no easy task anymore! Of course, Andrew didn't want to cooperate. But he did not sleep good the night before because of the storms that came through. I thought all would go well when we went to church because Andrew finally decided to take a nap. But................................he woke up when we got there and was okay for a little bit, but it was eating time. This was when he decided to start crying. My Mom took him to the nursery to feed him and you could hear him crying in there. I felt horrible.
Well...................we got home and got to spend some time with hubby before he went to work again. We had already made plans to go to Noo Noo's house to eat for my Dads birthday and to celebrate Mother's Day. To tell you the truth, I really wanted to stay at home because I was afraid Andrew might pitch another good one. But, I wanted to go and spend some time with my family. So we ventured out again.
He was fine.........................
he decided he was happy no more!! He cried for almost an hour! YES and hour! I had no clue what to do. Mr. Ducky was there and he couldn't help either. I was so afraid something was wrong that I sat down in the floor and cried with him. (in the bedroom with the door shut :-))
I was at a loss as to what to do. So I laid him down on the bed and he cried a little bit longer and he went to sleep.
We got ready to go home and I put him in his car seat and loaded him in the car and off we went. He slept all the way home and quite a while at home. He awoke just as it was bath time. I gave him a bath fed him and he went right back to sleep and slept till this morning. (bless his heart!)
So......I guess I just need to realize that babies have their good days and bad ones. But it breaks my heart when he cries. He hasn't done anything like this since he has been here.
Well...............enough of my Mother's Day.........BLAH BLAH BLAH.........I hope you all had a wonderful day! It had to have been better than mine.....although I look at my day and realize it probably wasn't as bad as I thought it was!!!

His doctor told us to start him on baby food!! YEAH!!! But guess what? We have already done that! But now he gets to try all the nasty looking ones......like: peas, carrots and green beans!

Well....................I forgot to post Saturday that it was my Daddy's birthday! Although he was working and wasn't able to be home, I decided to send him a card on his cell phone! Hope you like it!!! Although, I sent it to him twice on his birthday and because I have decided that cell phones hate me, he did not receive them until the next day!!! Boo Hoo!!

One of my dear friends that I used to work with passed away earlier today. Her name was Clara. She had to have emergency surgery on her colon Sunday afternoon and had a lot of complications. She was not supposed to make it through the night but God saw fit for her to take her last breath today at about 1:00. She was a wonderful lady and I enjoyed each moment that I shared with her at work! She was a very godly woman also! She always had an encouraging word for me just about every day! I am going to miss her a lot! Especially her saying, "Heavens to Mergatroid."(not sure of the spelling.) :o) I just loved to hear her say that! I use it quit often myself, now!
I ask that you remember this wonderful family in your prayers today. Mrs. Clara, in my opinion, was the glue that kept this family together! I know that they will miss her dearly!
