Hello Everyone! Today Shannon and I have been doing things to get the house ready. I thought we were ready but when you actually have a set date and time it makes you really look at little things that need to be done. We changed some light bulbs and the a/c filter and went to the grocery store. I am also doing some things (recommended by a pediatrician we heard speak) to prepare the house for the babies and guests. You might think me crazy but I promise...these are all things we were told to do by the doctors. I have sanitizer in most rooms, blankets ready, and antibacterial soap in all soap dispensers. The doctors told us that everyone coming in the house must wash thoroughly with soap and water. Then....they can use sanitizer as long as they remain in the house. When holding the babies a blanket should be used to cover shirts, etc. due to germs and pollutants that might have landed on peoples clothes. Do you think it is too much? We will do this for at least the first 2-3 weeks and will likely loosen up as the babies mature. Mama has made me feel better about it saying that these are our babies and we can enforce whatever measure we feel are needed. We can hardly wait for Thomas and Madelynn to get here.
I also wanted to share some pictures Shannon took today. We went to the Pumpkin Patch at our church (Wesley). I wanted a big pumpkin for our front door. The mums were beautiful!!! Hope your enjoying this "cooler" weather as well. October is my FAVORITE time of year....what better time for our angels to enter this world!! Blessings!
