Life Is A Roller Coaster




Well, my impatient little grandsons are here, 10 weeks early. They came Tuesday morning, just could not wait until Thanksgiving. They barely waited until Nonnie got out of the hospital! That's Max on top, he's older by six minutes. Then there is Marshall, who gave us all quite a scare but now he's just fine. And Natalie is fine, but tired. They weight around 3.5 pounds, but Marshall is now just over 4 pounds! They will both be off ventilators today, and breathing on their own with just the CPAP for help. And they can now both be held by their mommy and daddy. Max looks like Natalie, and Marshall looks like Bryan. We are just all so happy that there are not enough words. Bear with me for a while as my beady blog gets taken over by baby news.

The knee is fine, but I'm exhausted. This is the first day I've had to relax since I was discharged Sunday. I need to take stock of where I am in the beady scheme of things since life has been a big series of ups and downs this week. I cannot believe it's already Friday. I'll try to get back on track this weekend and intersperse some beady stuff with babies next week. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I know I will!

Hey, take your time. Recoup yourself and enjoy being a new grandma. Beads can wait a little while longer!!

Carol, I feel like my entire life has been put on hold for the past week! Now that we know Marshall will be okay, it's like a huge sigh was released from all of us. I'm ready for the fun to begin!

I'm so happy that they're doing so well. They are reallyreally cute and look so adorable in their little baby's-first-mugger-hats. Gotta love it. We do indeed need to get together.

Wait til you see them in person! They are adorable, of course I do have a rather biased opinion. And yes, soon!
