Settling Down

Things at the Crane household are well. My body has finally decided that it is only feeding one child instead of 14, so that is seriously great. I went to Quilt Guild meeting last night. I so love that night of the month. It was once again inspiring and so friendly. We have some truly fun, great ladies that come to guild meeting. Oh, one note on that.


In the past when I tell Kelsey that I am going to quilt guild she usually says something like this "Oh mom, I hate it when you leave. I wish I could go with you or you just didn't have to go. Who is going to babysit us until Dad gets home?" She is usually excited about the babysitter and isn't so hung up on me leaving. Well, last night I told Kelsey that once again I was going to quilt guild and that there wasn't going to be a babysitter. I was just going to wait for Matt to get home and then go. Her response surprised me when she said "Sweet, we are going to party tonight!" She even did a little happy dance.


When I got home from guild meeting, the house was near perfectly picked up, the girls were in bed, Matt was in the recliner watching a cow sale DVD, the fire was roaring (it was snowing again!), and all was very well. I wondered what kind of PARTY had occurred. So I asked Kelsey this morning. She said "It was super fun, we watched Peter Pan and Dad didn't make us have cough medicine before bed." Oh the simple joys of childhood!


So here are a few pictures. This one is Kelsey and Emmitt getting ready for bed last week. Kelsey has surprised me with this little baby. I thought she would always be wanting to hold him and love on him and it would drive me crazy. WRONG! She doesn't want to hold him because she doesn't want him to "throw up on her." Funny little girl. Kendal went to my parents' house for a week after Emmitt was born. That was a wonderful thing to happen. It was always part of the plan, but the fact that Kendal was sick with fevers for 3 days before he was born was a good excuse too. While at my mom's house, she was treated for bronchitis, an ear infection, and a nasty gooey eye. Thanks mom and dad for taking care of the mischievous 3 year old for a week!

This is our little Emmitt yesterday. He is seriously the best, laziest baby. We are so happy to have this little man join our family. He is a sweetheart.
