here. I forgot the blanket that she loves holding when she falls asleep. Thankfully she was happy with my jersey. Once she was asleep they did an ECG. You can see how much she moved though because by the time we had the ones on her chest attached - the ones on her arms had already been knocked off.
Rachel and Ruth helped me to get a nice stack of wood ready inside and right at the back door (and Rachel filled the wood box). The expectation for this week (starting tonight) was a snow storm that would be the biggest the country had seen in 20 years. We wanted to be ready.
Such a happy girl. We thank the Lord for you Asher.
We realized when Grandpa died that we need to make sure we get one-on-one time to talk to Ruth about things as she generally puts on such a strong face even when she is really sad inside. So on Monday night Brendon got to chat to Ruth a bit about Asher as she started crying when she went to bed. She said something like "I don't want to not have a baby sister." She had been really worried about Asher. Brendon could then tell her about how she had been laughing at the doctor and that made her feel so much better.
We all love you very much Asher.
I kept wondering if the snow would arrive. Thankfully Sarah has a vehicle that would be able to get them home if it did start coming down heavily. Although we did not see any snow through the day the rain was incredible.
It just kept coming and the wind along with it made it so cold. It must have been so unpleasant for everyone working out there (including my dear husband). I know Brendon kept wishing it would stop raining and rather snow as he says the snow is much easier to work in.
The girls also did some baking while they were there. They really had such a fun time. What a lovely treat for them. Not so great for me though as these two big girls are such a help for me at home. It was rather full on with Asher and Hezekiah - but a good opportunity for me to realize how much the girls help.
Friday 21st: The girls were disapointed that there had not been any snow over night (again) but were excited to see my phone's weather report for the day. Unfortunately although there were a few flurries - there was just not enough to even think of settling and just too much rain still. Freezing cold though and I think this is what has made the week so hard. The temperatures have been so cold due to all the snow around (even Christchurch getting a good amount in places) but we have just had the cold wet weather and no enjoyment of snow to go with it.
This especially made Ruth laugh as there is a photo of her as a baby looking up at my mug in just the same way. So we said "Asher is doing Ruth's trick now."
Thanks Ruth Love for the lovely pjs for Hezekiah. Here he is finding something different to do with this toy library toy just before bed. He had us all laughing so much. :-)
