Meet Sandy!

First I wanted to post Naomi at 10 weeks.

Okay, now for Sandy. Last weekend, Hannah got off the bus and this baby squirrel crawled into her hands. The kids FINALLY got a pet. They fed her cheerios and cashews. What squirrel wouldn't like cashews? They played with Sandy for a couple of hours and then I told them, "Sandy's mom is probably looking for her, and it is time to let her go." Well, Sandy did not want to go. She followed us around. It was kind of creeping me out. So, I did a little research and found that the squirrel was orphaned. Mommy probably got hit by an SUV. The baby squirrel had yet to learn how to retrieve its food, so it turns to humans for help.
Derek comes home and said he would take care of her starvation problem with a simple shovel to its head. He's so sweet....He's like, "'s a squirrel...are you kidding me?"
I got a hold of the wildlife rehab to come and pick up Sandy. By the way, this was all going on while I was trying to have a garage sale at the house. Sandy was scaring people at the garage sale. Luckily, someone from the garage sale wanted to take Sandy and rehab her back to nature. This gentlemen had said that he had done it before. Ahhhh...yes, I saved Sandy's life from Derek and I got rid of creepy stalker squirrel.

Naomi at 2 months!

Her eyes are still blue and that hair is blonde, but almost reddish in the sun. Crazy. She has been sleeping through the night for a week now. She sleeps from 10p to 7a. I'm loving it. I do get up a couple of times in the night to check on her, because I never hear her cry.
I started running again last week. I'm only doing 3 miles a day, but it feels good to exercise again. I always gain 50 pounds with each pregnancy, so I have to work extra hard to lose the weight. Nursing alone does not do the trick for me. I have to go back to work next week, which I am not looking forward to. I'm only going to do a couple 4 hour shifts to start with.
Hannah is playing soccer and fastpitch this Spring. Derek is the assistant coach for her soccer team. Ben and Eve are also playing soccer this Spring. They are all on different teams! Sooooo, Saturday is crazy! Hannah plays from 9:30-11:00 and then goes to her softball game. Eve plays from 10:30-12:00 and Ben from 1:00-2:30. We have games every night of the week except for Wednesday (Bible Study) and Friday nights (The night I will be working).
Derek is always busy with work, but has managed to get in a couple of rounds of golf when the weather was nice. Was is the key word. He is working with our friend Craig to build a deck out back. I'll post before and after pictures when they finish. He is also preaching this Sunday for Mother's Day! Well, that's about all I have for now.
