I know I have been a slacker lately when in comes to blogging, so here is my meager attempt at catching up. We haven't been doing too much around here lately. C and K went and spent a few days with Grandma in Richmond. They left the day after E and I came home from the hospital. So, I had about a week of being a mom to one, not three. It was really nice. Thanks Grandma! I have had all three kids for the last week and a half, and it hasn't been as bad as I predicted. Don't get me wrong, its definitely tougher than just two, but not as bad as 4 toddlers. It helps that E sleeps - a lot! And doesn't cry hardly at all. Next week will be the real test when Drew has to go out of town. I will have all three kids, all by myself for the entire week! Here are a few pictures from the last week or so.

Nonnie got the kids a blow up pool and they have already had hours of enjoyment!
C loves his little brother. I have a hard time keeping him from Smothering E some times. It is nice to see how much he cares for him and how sensitive he really is. As I write this, C is singing to E and trying to get him to clap his hands. How cute!
This is just a shot of the three kids. The two older ones were watching some TV and E was asleep. I couldn't believe that they were all still and quiet, all at the same time.

On another note, Drew had a biking accident last week on his way to work. He hurt his arm pretty bad and when he went to the Dr., they told him he broke the bone in his elbow. He has been miserable for the last week wearing a sling and trying to be comfortable and not too hot. He went to see the Orthopedic doc yesterday and he was told that the break wasn't that bad and they just gave him a sling. Thank goodness! He was worried that he wasn't going to be able to take advantage of the pool or the beach at all this summer. It is pretty bruised, and stiff, but other than that, he should be good to go.

We took E for his 2 week appointment and he already weighs 8 lbs 11 oz. I forgot how fast little babies change and grow. He already seems so different from two weeks ago!

We are looking forward to a few more fun things here in Virginia before we head back to Ohio. I will try to post a little more often.

Yeah--no excuse for being a slacker. It's not like you just had a baby or anything!

There's nothing more inconvenient than a sling! Let me tell you! I've had to use one plus an elbow brace to help my wii tennis elbow...rough life, I know. Cute pictures! Ethan is so little and sweet! Can't wait to meet him! :o)

I'm glad things are going well. I don't think you're slacking - just enjoying life! Hope Drew feels better soon. Can't wait to see y'all.
