on our own

We are officially on our own since Mimi went home yesterday.  We're doing great and it really isn't as hard as I thought it would be.  I plugged in the monitor for a while and played with Harper outside while Kate napped.  That was really the first I'd been without Kate right with me.  I missed my Harper and really enjoyed the one-on-one that I got with her yesterday.  We played outside, painted, colored, and even decorated Easter cookies together.

Last night we also had our first outing as a family of 4.  Since I can't drive yet, I've been stuck inside.  I went to Target with Susan (mimi) on Wednesday, and last night our family of 4 went to eat down the street.  Delicious food consumed in a hurry.  We managed.  I must look tired, though, because I got a bunch of looks like, "oh, that poor young lady."  One woman even offered us her table.  Ha!  I'll get myself together soon enough.  Right now I'm just loving my girls.
