Cheating tonight.

I'm feeling a bit under the weather today so I'm going to cheat and picture post tonight.

Ainsley is on day 3 of a portable vent. Maybe I'll talk more about it later, but the point is: YAYSKEEEE!

Olivia is almost three and has figured out that she can earn things she wants. Namely, candy or chocolate dipped granola bars. Last night she was doing the dishes so I would give her candy.

Also, I keep slippers at the hospital because I like to make myself obnoxiously comfortable.


I'm going to put on loose pants and crash with my blanket and some juice. For your viewing pleasure...

OMFG the cuteness of both Olivia and Ainsley!

Also, those slippers? Almost as hideous as your crocs. When you are better would you be willing to improvise a similar dance for our viewing pleasure?

Can I borrow Olivia? I have a sink full of dishes and buckets of candy. :o) I'm all about cheap kid labor!

And my oh my that baby chub is delicious!

Love that bright shining smile.

and poor little Cinderella doing the dishes.

Ainsley has a good attitude, doesn't she?

Might as well be comfy at the hospital.

Olivia is doing the dishes? I've gotta implement that scheme.

Oh! Your kids are soooooo cute!

I would like to know why Olivia looks better in her "baby got back" corduroy pants than I ever have?

Everyone thinks slippers are a great gift to give me multiple times a year. So I'd probably leave them at the hospital, too. And maybe the grocery store. Because, hell, I've got enough to go around.

Love your slippers. Check out that smile. Hoping that you'll have "portable vent" stories to tell us soon.

Ainsley looks so happy! Wonderful to see.

1. There is no such thing as an obnoxious level of comfort. You've almost been there for a year. I see no issue here. You should probably also have a massage table there.

2. Look at all that hair Olivia has grown!

3. You are my hero because my goal is to never do a chore again once my child is 7. You are ahead of the game.

4. If only a facebook page called "Get Ainsley Home" could be of any help...

Look how happy she is! So precious!

Hi from a newish reader! Your family is beautiful, and you are an inspiring mama.

Beth said...

Picture posts totally count!
I like the slippers (I myself have multiple pairs), the cherub faced Ainsley and the learning-how-the-world-is Olivia!
Rest up, keep strong.

Would it be inappropriate for me to tell Olivia that she has a cute butt?

For the record, I am ALL about child labor. Go Olivia, go.

Hey! I have been reading your blog forever and commenting off and on. I had twins a week before you had yours at 31 weeks and they lived in the NICU for 8 months and now they are home with NO kidneys which means we put them on dialysis every day. It's a big frickin deal so I get a lot of what you're going through. I finally started a blog about them so you should check it out anytime you need to know other people have totally drama queen babies too! Or email me at steph.graham@hotmail.com because maybe we could be friends with all our NICU life experiences and adorable babies and all!

Amy said...

Best post ever!!! I'm loving Olivia's sassy haircut, your comfy slippers, and Ainsley's happy face! So awesome! :)

Milla said...

I'm totally shocked and captivated by that picture of Ainsley. She looks grown up all of a sudden, that's a real, happy smile, rather than the automatic, yet still lovely, baby kind. Oh she is beautiful and I want to pick her up. And thanks for the Olivia and the slippers. I can never find a slipper (let alone a pair), I am impressed at your personal organisation. Olivia is also looking grown up and I hope enjoyed whatever she earned, I am impressed by the work ethic, if only the world was that fair, x

MFA Mama said...

Ohhhhh look at Ainslee! That is real joy! So good to see. And oh, Olivia. Nice slippers :)

she has the chubbiest cheeks! so adorbs (that's when adorable just doesn't do the trick, you have to shorten it to adorbs) Your blog brings me so much hope for the future. My hubbs and i are just beginning our struggle with IF, and your blog is certainly a great ray of sunshine in an otherwise dim world. Thanks for putting everything out there, definitely makes us feel like we're not alone.
