we christen thee ... starfish beach

We found the mother lode!  Is this not a perfect picture of two little girls that spend every waking hour exploring?

Starfish, lizard training, moth catching ... oh my!

We had a great time.  Great ... doesn't even describe it really.  Peaceful, relaxing, soul-filling joy ... that's a little better.

I have good news!  The vision in my left eye is slowly starting to return!  Praise God!  I still have a 'black band' of vision that's gone.  Only way I can describe it, is there's a single line of black vision that I don't have.  Much like if your sunglasses were constantly dirty.  But the vision around that 'line' is starting to get clearer.  It's not as fuzzy as it used to be and clearer than it has been in a couple of weeks.

I'm still trying to get my strength back.  Again, much stronger than I've been in a week ... but oh my word the kids thought there was something seriously wrong with me after I was chasing them on the beach yesterday ... mama gettin' old!  My voice isn't back to normal quite yet and I'm having an awful time sleeping.  But only 4 more days of the oral steroid left to go ... yay!

I'm spending the day with Hunter today and then Curt and I leave tonight for Mayo {with is his mom :)}.  Will keep you posted as I find anything out.

Wishing you today's most awesomest blessings!

Oh!  And in case any of you saw my recent 'tweet' ... the baby was up around 3 this morning, Curt came in to take over so I crawled back into bed but was up around 5:30.  I came out and saw the family room TV was on {Max & Ruby, so knew it was Hunter} and went to take a peek, but she wasn't there.  I figured she was up with Curt in his office, so I came to my office.

He came by a bit later and looked toward my sofa for the baby.  I said I didn't have her.  He didn't have her either.  Hmmmm ... how do you lose a baby?

We go looking for her ... it's 5:30 a.m. mind you ... found out she had gone into the big girls room and crawled into bed with Piper and woke her up.  Then she crawled into bed with Wynter and woke her up.

We're talking steep bunkbed ladders folks ... there's a reason she's still sleeping in her crib!

Curt finally found her with her body half-way out of a large stuffed animal basket.  Sigh ...

Huntie is one sick baby, poor thing's been fighting this for the last couple of days ... I'm taking her into the doc this morning, hopefully for some good meds to cure what ails her.  The girls are all comfortably snuggled in watching Tinkerbell right now.

I do. not. want. to get this day started ... E-X-U-M-A where are you??!??!!!
