The past week has been a long one to say the least. Larry has been gone for almost a week and half. He was home for one night and then off again for a work project. I didn't realize how much I depend on him for mental support until he is gone. I am so ready for him to be home.
The twins have been sick but I really shouldn't complain since this is the first time this winter that they have really been down and out due to not feeling well. It is just so hard when they both want Momma. Roman has really become a Momma's boy...he want me by his side for everything from watching tv to reading a book to taking a nap. While I like being needed it makes it difficult to get things done or even go to the restroom let alone poor Renley need my attention as well so we are working on taking turns helping Mom do things.
They are growing so much and talking more and more every day. They love to "read" books to me and talk about all the things we see. They can't wait for the weather to get warmer....As most of the people I know. It is so hard coming up with activities to do with them that will keep them busy for a while.
This past week they have had their first experience going to a babysitter's home. My mom has always come to my house or the girls watch them or Carrie comes and stays with them when we go out or on vacation. I realize what a blessing that has been and how glad I am that I don't have to get everyone around every morning in a mad rush! Bonnie, my niece is taking care of the twins once a week while I work in Springfield and my mom will come to the house once a week. The kids love FInn, Bonnie's son, and they adore Bonnie. She is so good with the twins. I can't imagine leaving them with anyone else! When we were leaving Renley turns to FInn and says, "Bye, you!" It was so sweet!!
