I spent some time reading- it's so much fun to read picture books to my littles! I was reminded that I need to do this more. We read aloud a lot but it's usually at the older children's levels, which is great for the younger ones to hear & learn from but I need to also read at their level. I read Blueberries for Sal, a family favorite, and Abigail giggled the whole way through.
Starbucks in a bookstore... someone was a genius to combine those two things! Everyone enjoyed their special (sugary!) treats:
Katherine is doing better with the nursing but she still has times when she struggles & I have to do the pumping/drip milk into her mouth thing to get her to latch on. I'll be sticking close to home a lot until we get this thing down. She is completely adorable though! She does NOT like it if I bundle her arms, so I wrap up the lower part of her body when she sleeps so her hands can be by her face. All of my babies before her spit up but she doesn't at all. Yeah! She's nursing every 3 hours during the day and 4 hours at night. YAHOO!!! First baby to go 4 hours at night so early- she's my favorite. ;)
Here's one random pic of Emily, who stayed home with Daddy & the boys (and Patricia) while we went out. This is what playtime turns to when you have brothers:
