The monkeys are much better! Right now Andy has some ruff diapers and they all still get really tired in the afternoons. So I know they have not built back up to where they were but they are on their way! Tomorrow it is going to be pretty out side so I think we are going to be out side most of the day! I am looking forward to this! They are too!
Mike and I went to see Tommy Ledbetter today. The doctors told them that after today the swelling in his brain should start going down. Then they can give them a better idea of what is going on. But Gay was telling us that he had been responding to their voices. They have tubes down his throat, this seems to be making him mad. All of these things are good signs! The doctors didn't think he would be doing any of these things this soon. Please remember Tommy, Gay, Kerry and the rest of their family in your prayers!
I am going to be working on getting everything out of the extra bedroom to get this cleaned up and ready for Abbie to move in there. We have got to do something. Andy has got to where he will tell Levi that their room is his room and not let him come in. Levi will cry and tell me that he wants a room like Andy has. I try to tell him that Andy's room is his room. But we do have an extra bedroom so we are thinking the best thing to do is just give each of them their own room. This would have to be done sooner or late so I guess now is as good a time as any. Maybe this will help with bed time when they want to play and don't go to sleep until late! I sure hope so! I will post pictures as I get the rooms done. I am kind of looking forward to having something creative to do. Well, a little creative, I want to make the rooms fun for them. Speaking of which, Does anyone have a chalk board wall? Is this easy to do or more trouble than it is worth? I am thinking about doing this, but I am just not sure. Abbie's room is going to have butterfly's. I am thinking a yellow or maybe a pale orange color. I am waiting for her comforter to get her to decide. Maybe it will be her next week. I am not sure about Levi & Andy's. I know the walls are going to be white with one wall in Levi's room green and one wall in Andy's room blue. Andy's bunk bed is white. Levi's is red. So I am thinking red, blue, yellow & green. Maybe do circles, squares & triangles on the walls. Then just add all their junk (toys). What do ya think? No real theme in there for them to decide in a week that they don't like. Now I need a twin & full size bedspread in green and a twin & full size in blue. Or at least red, yellow, blue or green. I am not sure where I will find these. But I am looking. Maybe the dollar store will have them. I am going to get shades for their windows. For some reason they think they can climb blinds and they don't fair well in their rooms. But I have to get Abbie's done first and then I will go from there.
I think I am going to head to bed now. Night!
