We've been home just over 3 weeks now, and I think we're getting a little bit of cabin fever.  Being on lockdown for flu season really does take its toll on preemie families.  We've always been a very active family, getting out of the house on the weekends as often as possible.  It's crazy to think it's been about a year since we've gone camping (My bedrest started on December 6, 2011, so it was sometime before that).  We took Dani on her first camping trip when she was only 2 months old.  I know that there will be a time when we'll finally be able to break out and go places, it's just not that easy right now.  We actually tried to take the kids out for a walk on the beach this morning, but trying to figure out the right time between Ryan's feeding schedule and Dani's nap became too much of a logistical nightmare.  So, I took Dani for a nice, long walk around the neighborhood while Dave mstayed home with Ryan and watched some "guy TV".  It is difficult having to split up and take turns to get out of the house, but we just have to remember it's only temporary.  If any other preemie parents are reading this and have some advice for how you made it through the winter months, please leave a comment!  We'd love ideas.

One thing that helps is letting her help out with dinner.  On Friday we made a bubble up pizza casserole recipe I found on pinterest, and she had a blast! I don't know why we didn't start this sooner. 

Here's Ryan checking out his adorable new puppy toy,  Thanks for all the goodies Kristina, Charles, and Mila!

We're looking forward to having some visitors stop by tomorrow.  Should help get us through one more day of lockdown. :)

Thanks for checking in on us and for the continued prayers for strength, healing and growth.
