Meme and Poppy(and Jordan and Amber) made another trip to Kansas to visit. This time, however, they were taking my babies home with them.We have less than two weeks before Felicity Adeline will join our family! Being that I have to stay off of my feet, due to a stinkin' blood clot in my leg, I decided to let them go to Oklahoma for a while. This was not an easy decision for Sam and I, we have not been separated from our precious babies for longer than a day and it for sure was not seven hours away! Kylie Joy did not go, she is so attached to mommy that we knew she would not do well, plus, she takes naps and is willing to lay next to me in bed all day if she has to. She is always at mommy's side. Asa and Hannah left on Sunday afternoon, Monday while eating dinner, Kylie asked me, "Can Asa and Nannah come home and play with me some day?" She is missing them so bad, she talks about them all day. She has talked to Asa on her toy phone off and on all day today. So I sent meme a text to ask if when the kids got a chance if they could give us a call. Meanwhile, I got Kylie all dressed up to go to the Library. Our books/movies were due back today and I thought it would also be great if Kylie Joy had some new books and movies to watch while we were 'staying off of our feet'! So she is all dressed up and we are headed toward the door, she is pushing her two babies in her stroller, and the phone rings. So I went into the bedroom to get the phone figuring it was meme, Asa and Hannah calling to talk to her. No longer than it took me to get the phone and get to her she was out the door, it was sprinkling and had been all morning. There she was, having a blast in the mud!
It was not long and she wanted her muddy wet dress off. So much for going to the library any time soon. I let her play in the mud puddles in her pull-up for awhile. She even told me once that she was a dirty princess. She is definitely not a girly girl when it comes to getting dirty... she could care less, she loves playing in sand, mud, dirt, ect.
After a bath we did make it to the library. Kylie was more interested in all the toys they had in the kid section than picking out books so I picked out six or seven books and about 5 movies and talked her into leaving the toys behind so we could go home and put our feet up. I had also told her we would stop by storage on our way home and pick up a sheet so we could make a big tent to read our books in. I'm trying really hard to keep her mind off of Asa and Nannah!
And that is just what we did, we got two sheets and made a tent that covers her whole bed! She loves it, and I know Asa and Hannah will too when they get back!
Another thing we brought home from storage was her baby stroller. We have been here for about six months and I have looked time and time again for that silly thing for her. Today I was not even looking for it and there it was. She loves it ... now she don't have to push her babies around in that big 'ol stroller! After a nap, she decided she needed to take her babies for a walk. We went outside and enjoyed the 67 degrees temp. for awhile!
