Emma and I had our two week check ups on Monday. She has gained a whole pound from her birth weight! She was 7lbs 12oz when she was born and then went to 7lbs 5oz before we left the hospital. At her check up on Monday she was 8lbs 12oz!! She's a healthy eater!!
Michael is taking off 1/2 day today so we can finish up our Christmas shopping. I have ordered a couple things online and I am really scared they aren't going to make it here in time for Christmas. Yikes! We still have so much to get still - we hardly have any of our shopping done. Every year I say that I am going to get it done early and that never happens! Granted this year I have a slight excuse! Ha ha!
My dad left yesterday for Florida with his brother from California. Their other brother that still lives in Egypt is there having major bypass surgery so they are going there to be with him and his wife. I understand why they have to go, but it also means that daddy is probably going to miss Christmas this year. He's missed many in the past because of work, but it's been a long time since he's missed one and he's been right by mother's side for over a year now while she has been going through everything with the cancer and surgeries and everything. It's going to be hard for her if he isn't here - but she is going to stay with me a while so that will be good and then my Grannie might come stay a little while with her, too. We'll just wait and see what happens. Please be sure to keep my uncle in your thoughts and prayers, though this holiday season that he makes it through this surgery well and that all is okay.
I hear my little darling waking up so I better go...
