Just popping in to do a quick update... turns out being a mother to TWO kiddos is a lot more time consuming than when you have just one. Strange...
I will say that my Mom is doing an AMAZING job keeping up with all of Elise's D-care. I know how scary it is to be thrown into the fire, but she has done so well. The D-Monster has sort of behaved, although our first night home from the hospital was a doozy. Poor Fred was up all night either changing Mattias's diaper, or getting him out of his bassinet for me to feed him, ect; and then running to Elise's room to handle Eileen's many LOW alerts and to give Elise some carbs. Thankfully, things have settled down a bit with Mattias, but Elise's numbers are all sorts of crazy. I just need some time to sit and noodle her numbers. Heh, noodle.
Anyway, this was supposed to be a Team Elise update, so here goes: We are less than two weeks from the walk and Team Elise has close to 90 walkers here in North Texas, and around 60 people that are going to walk in Portugal. Our totals from Chick-fil-a came in, and in a two-hour period, we raised $426.21... Chick-fil-a Southlake is AWESOME!
And as for our fundraising, we have smashed our goal of $10,000, and have raised close to $11,000 so far... how incredible is that? I am so sad that I won't be able to join Team Elise during the walk (due to my c-section), but you can bet Mattias and I will be at the finish line cheering everybody on.
GO TEAM ELISE!
P.S. I have been trying to keep up with every body's blogs, but haven't been leaving comments. So many of you have made me laugh, cry and generally kept me entertained during my hospital stay. I feel so outside the loop, but hope to be updating again soon. If you ever want Mattias updates, they will mostly be posted on my other blog from now on. My anal retentive side needs to keep it separated.
