Well, things have calmed down somewhat around the Crazy House. Lincoln is 3 weeks old today, and we have had 2 pretty good weeks. He has been sleeping at night between his 2-3 feedings, but has more awake time during the day. All normal, but he is not very happy when awake sometimes.
Grandma Hassenzahl and Gr. Grandma Foster came to stay and help out last Monday and Tuesday, which was very much appreciated! They got to have some alone time with Jena, Asia, and Lincoln, while Cathy and Braden went to get Braden's 5-year pictures. I think they had enough "fun" during that time, and were ready to head home!
I did not get in pictures of big sister Asia in previous posts, so here she is. She is not sure what to do with Lincoln sometimes, but is the first one to come runnning when he is crying. She even tries to grab him and hold him when he is crying in Mommie's arms.
Asia has been quite the handful these past couple of weeks and has become quite the climber. We have found her on top of the kitchen table, the computer desk, and the kitchen counter. She can climb into her high chair, which none of her older siblings could accomplish at her age.
She has adjusted very well to the transition, though. She has become much less needy and can be held by almost anyone now. She goes into the nurseries and sitters without any fuss, which makes things much easier.
As an added blessing, the project Cherokee (#4, I think) sold on Saturday! Yea! It has been here since January, and really needed to go. I worked pretty frantically for the last 2 months trying to get it finished, but didn't make it before Lincoln was born, and had to finish it on a couple of late nights. It was alot of work with not so much gain. I am probably done doing this for a while. It's just not worth it.
OK, I apologize for the long interval between updates, but time flies when you're....something...something...... Anyway, I will try to do better. We will be attempting family pictures in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for those.
Happy Monday from the Crazy House.
