Still here, I promise!

It's been awhile since I have blogged and I have missed it.  Every time I put the thought in of "I'm going to get a blog post up today", the day screamed by and it was already bedtime.  I am amazed at how fast the days go and cannot believe that it is already October!

Watching: Friends on TV!  The highlight of my afternoon is that Friends is on TBS and I watch a good 2 hours of it.  I also have all of the episodes recording so if I am bored, I can watch the episodes I missed that day.  
Reading: all of the social media apps on my phone including blogger.  I read a lot during my nursing sessions.  I wish the website would work on my iPhone a little better, but I deal with it.
Planning: on doing not a whole lot this weekend and I am OK with that!  We are either moving 100% of the time or not at all.  
Eating: dinner is a new recipe I found on Facebook called "Easy Crock Pot Potato Soup"

Easy Crock Pot Potato Soup
By Couponing4you

1 30oz. bag of frozen diced hash browns
1 32 oz box of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz, not fat free)
3 oz bacon bits
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Put the potatoes in the crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook on low for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into small cubes. Place the cubes in the crock pot. Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving.
Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it's ready to serve.
Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits.
Loving: the special time I am spending with Luke.  I have been home for 3 weeks and am LOVING every minute of it.  It's going to be SO hard for me to go back to work.

The Weather:  it's been thunder storming and raining for almost 24 hours and I am OK with it.  Keeley on the other hand, not OK with it.  She is over the thunder storms!  It's been in the 80's here for the last 2 weeks and I am over that weather also.  I am ready for some fall like weather, sweat pants, NO air conditioning, etc.  I also have had NO desire to put out my Halloween decorations this year because of the weather and also because I am tired....

The Animals:  they have been AMAZING!  Keeley is so protective over Luke and follows us around all day, everyday.  Smokey has gotten better with Luke.  The first couple days with Luke crying Smokey was not happy and would run away.  If you came anywhere near Smokey when you had Luke in your hands we would run from you.  Now he is good with him.  In fact right now Luke is in the Rock n Play and I have Keeley to my left and Smokey to my right sleeping on the couch.  

The Husband:  he has been great!  He went back to work on Tuesday and has been working hard.  I know he misses us a lot during the day and I know that we miss him!  Luke sleeps a lot so when Andy comes home he asks when he is next to wake up.  Andy has been so supportive, helpful whenever I need him and loving towards us all.  Without him, we would be a mess.

The Baby:  has been great also!  We had a set back with him Sunday evening where we had to go to the ER with him.  He is ok but he will require testing in a couple months to make sure he is still ok.  I plan on posting about this very soon.  I wrote a blog post while in the hospital with him so it shouldn't take me long to get that story up.  My birth story is another story.  I am really trying to get that up for you all also.

Of course I have to share some baby photos so here you go:
