Playing Catch Up!!!

If you haven't given up on me altogether...hi there!
I intend on doing some catch up posts on here, very soon.
I realize that I waste waaayyy too much time playing online games on Facebook. Here's my excuse for that...there is really not very much that you can do with one hand...and the baby girl likes to be HELD. In fact I JUST put her in her crib 1 1/2 min ago...asleep...and she is now awake screaming for me to pick her up and let her sleep in my arms. sheesh. I am going to try an experiment...
put her in the snuggli and try to type around her...

Ok...I'm back.

Officially wearing one baby and drinking one VERY strong cup of yummy coffee.
Hey...this could work.

The past couple of months are a big blur.
So, off the top of my head, this is a few posts that I really want to make their way to the blog ASAP.

* Allegra's Birth
*Wyatt's First Ski Trip
*Brother and Sister
*Christmas Re-Cap
*Wyatt's 4th Birthday
*Happy New Year

Haha...So I'm not behind or anything.

(snuggli update: she has continued to scream, i'm not sure if this bright idea is going to work, and now Wyatt is up from his nap. Probably due to the screaming of one 'sweet baby girl'. It's a darn good thing I made that coffee)

So here is an update from the "here and now". It's been just a hair over a year since I fell in the snow and dislocated my kneecap. Man, childbirth has nothing on that pain. (they give you the good drugs when you have a baby)
Yesterday, I waited for both kids to be napping to take my shower. Well, Wyatt was napping and Allegra woke up the second I put her in her crib. Anyway, it happened to be at around 3 when all the stars aligned and I was able to FINALLY go take a shower. So, the water was on, and I remembered that my shampoo was next to the sink, so I stepped one foot out of the bathtub and the rest is a little bit fuzzy...but all I know is that the foot that was in the bathtub lost traction and some how I must have "over-corrected" and flew backwards...dislocating my kneecap and hitting my head on the fixed shelf on the way down. All I know is that I ended up flat on my back with the water raining on my face...the shelf that I hit my head on has a 2 inch crack in it and my kneecap had popped back into place by the time the dust had settled. I'm so glad for that, but I could barely drag myself out of the shower to get the phone to call Ryan. Today, my head is tender, my knee is killing, and I can barely walk again. Ugh...I know it could have been alot worse, but it feels like last year, all over again.

Anyway, here's to hoping that I can figure out a creative way to be able to use both hands again...but in the meantime, I have a Multi-million dollar farm, a very successful restaurant named McFatt's, and 2 thriving fish tanks to show for myself on facebook.

Glad to hear you are still alive! Ha ha! That fall sounded nasty, and a screaming baby who needs constant holding definitely sounds stressful (although totally worth it, I am sure). Take it easy and don't stress about us! Hope to see you sometime soon! :o)

Lots of good one-handed games on the Wii. Perhaps you and sleeping baby can master the Nentendo world. ;-).

Emily Beth McFadden!!!! I am only a phone call away!!! Next time you call me so I can come get the kiddos.
Okay, done scolding. I am so sorry you hurt yourself again. Maybe you should always wear a brace...just in case!!!

Seriously, if you need a break anytime please call. love you!!!

Oh girlie. What a crazy day you had. Can't believe that the knee thing happened again! I actually laughed when I read Lynn Ann's comment. She scolded you. He he. We love you. Here's to a better tomorrow!

sounds like our baby girls are very similar. Kaedence also wants to slee in my arms. Most days seems like she is content to be held by me all day.

RuthAnn said...

yikes, sorry to hear about your knee. do you need to have it evaluated, or are you a specialist on your problems, now?
I've had a bad two weeks: pinched a nerve in the neck, and "threw out" my back... so many days on the couch, so many tears from pain... so much additional work for Andy.
hope to see you next month at MOMS!
