Well life is in full swing here at the Wyatt home. Jack is crazy about the Christmas Tree, he loves the ornaments. He'll touch them, knowing that is not allowed, and look at us and say "Oh, it feels good." He is also very tempted by the presents under the tree. In the words of our doorman, "Our family is a little out of control!" It's been so fun getting packages in the mail. Jack gets especially excited to get to put another present under the tree. I can't wait till Christmas morning, it's going to be a fun one this year. Lillie and Elliott continue to grow and are doing pretty well. At the doctor Thursday Lillie weighed in at 7lb 9oz and Elliott followed behind at 7 lbs 6 oz. They are officially out of preemie clothes and into newborn sizes. Our latest challenge with them is they have their days and nights mixed up. I've been up with them all night the majority of this past week, during the day they are sleeping champs. I know I can make some adjustments and my plan is to start tomorrow or Monday to keep them stimulated a little more during the day so that maybe they'll sleep easier at night, but after a long night, its so nice to have peaceful days I just haven't brought myself to do it yet. I'm not even sure I know how I'm functioning during the day on the lack of sleep I've been getting, but not doing too bad. I have some pictures to post, just can't find the time right now to do it. The only reason I'm able to blog now is because Elliott was not happy in his bed and needed a little snuggle time here at 1:30 in the morning!
Anyway, I didn't get on here to talk about all of that necessarily. After reading Glenna's blog about her holiday baking I decided that I need some inspiration. Not for baking. I've actually wanted to do that on several occasions this Christmas, even wrote all the ingredients down for two recipes to go to the store and finally threw the paper away yesterday because tit kept getting in my way. I told Glenna that I needed to focus on actually cooking dinner before I got around to baking cookies!
Since the twins came home we've been greatly blessed to have so many people from church bring us dinner. What a huge help not to have to worry about cooking and take care of other things. Now that we are getting on a routine I need your help and inspiration. Tell me your favorite meals that are easy to make, healthy, and not real time consuming. I need to get back on my monthly menu routine. I did so good on this when we lived in Louisville, never got around to it in Clarksville.
Look forward to reading and cooking some new meals. Thank you so much!
