Sweet baby and a bit of enabling

Looks like he's flippin' the bird, huh?! LOL!

Cool spice rack
Gosh, have things been busy around here. I haven't had time for anything. Yesterday while Coleen and I were at Sam's Club we found this very cool spice rack for her to use for her embellishments. It was $24.98. They don't carry mine any more, but this one is very stylish, sturdy and it twirls around very well....just incase any of you are looking for one. I know a couple of you have found one already, but thought I would enable those that hadn't yet. :o)
I was out running errands today and I was on the side of town the hospital is on so I went to see the baby and I held him for an hour. He was wide awake for the first 45 minutes. He kept giving me these adorable little grins that absolutely melted my heart. I actually got teary eyed while holding him and I didn't even have my camera, so I sent it down with Brek and Brittany later to take pictures. Brek thought it was funny that it looked like he was flipping the bird, so he had to get the shot....not exactly the sweet pictures I wanted to get, but oh well. They did get some cute ones too. He is still having a hard time keeping down his feedings and his incision site was looking infected. They opened it back up and sent samples to the lab and took X-rays of his tummy. They say it seems to look fine, so now we are just waiting for him to hold down his feedings all the time. Brek and Brittany took the stroller there today and he got to have his first little walk in the hall of the NICU. Brek had to push the thing that all his wires are hooked up to while Brittany pushed the stroller. When I was waiting outside the hospital for the valet to bring me my truck, an 86 year old woman who was standing out there with her family came up to me and said "you have a nice face" I said "thanks...that's because I'm a nice girl" :o) We had a nice long conversation about her having throat cancer and her daughter having diabetes. She was very sweet and I enjoyed my talk with her.
Thanks for all the kind comments on my newly clean closet. I love that the lurkers are coming out and talking to me. It makes me feel good. I have decided to put the curtains back up, but leave them open. I like to see my stuff and have the splash of color as some of you pointed out. I would like to do some cute tie backs.
I know there are other things I had to say, but my brain just shut off from lack of sleep. Morning comes early in the George house.

The picture of Brittany and Baby Mark is priceless ... just look at the love on her face. What a sweet thing for B and Brek to be able to do with Baby Mark ... his first little outing around the NICU. I hope he gets to come home soon.

Isn't it amazing some of the strangers you meet? I feel we often all touch each other's lives without knowing it ... especially after reading "The Five People You Meet In Heaven". This lady could feel your sweet soul by looking at your very beautiful face ... isn't that amazing? A complete stranger felt comfortable talking with you.

Thank you for the reminder that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month ... I'm sure many of us have someone in our lives who's been affected.

Hope you have a great day!

Hi
My name is Therese and I live in Sweden.
I just came across your blog. I love scrapbooking too.
Your grandson is adorable. I cried when I read his story. I will keep my fingers crossed that he will get to go home soon.
I have 2 lil* boys myself. One 2 year old and one 4 year old.
I would love to add your blog to my favorites if that is ok?
Hugs all the way from Sweden

If you look closely, you'll see that it's not his middle finger...just looks like it. When they showed me the picture they asked me what I saw. I said Brittany's boobs....because I saw them before the finger. :o)
Therese...of course you can add me to your blog list.
Missy...thanks for the compliment. That is very sweet.
I'm so glad so many of you come to share my life with me...and for your heart felt well wishes for my grandson. Thank you all so much!

Okay so I noticed the finger and after reading the comments had to go back to look at what I missed (sorry brit curiosity got to me lol)
Mark is saying "@#$" this place I want to go home!!! I don't blame him.
Prayers are still going strong from this side of the country.
Lots of love to all......

Love the pink M&Ms but they need to make the Peanut Butter ones in Pink! :(

The baby photos are precious and loved the comment about the bird. I think Brek (typical guy) actually just wanted the clevage shot! ;) LOL!

Every time I come to your blog I hate my scraproom!

Chickenbells said...

Well...I think that is a hysterical picture! Isn't that just like a father to really get the good ones? lol

The M&M's look great...I have been craving chocolate in a big bad way lately, I don't know about you...
