kwightarmstrong Oh yeah, and I found 5 more in our front yard this afternoon when @a_armstrong_iii came home and we all hung out watching the clouds roll through while Freya got out some more energy. :)
The far left one is actually a 5-leaf clover. The top right one had some damage so it's more of 3 and a half leafed clover.
That's 8 in one day (about as many as I'd previously, collectively found in my lifetime). I guess this is a lucky neighborhood.

kwightarmstrong Took my girls on a walk, this sunny Spring day, and found a rare *6* leafed clover on the way home (see the two tiny petals in the center?). Then looked a little closer and found *two* more 4-leaf clovers in the same big patch.
I love when God gives me this special little Love notes just for me.

kwightarmstrong Feeling Good.
Added to my current count, and found *two* four-leaf clovers in the front yard while Lilly & I watched @a_armstrong_iii & #ladyFreya played Frisbee, on this Wonderful first day of Spring. And since I was holding her, she also did a little plant petting, and simultaneously picked her first 'flowers' (that little green tuft with 2 tiny purple buds attached). Plus I'm kindof liking my new 'body-by-breastfeeding.'
(And special thanks to @jonesdesigncompany, for her sweet side-bun video today!)

I am indeed a Lucky girl.

kwightarmstrong Right now I'm just missing him and want him to hurry home so we can get out of the house and celebrate Spring with our favorite guy while there's still light out. (But I hear he'll probably have to work late tonight too.) Last weekend it was such a blessing that Andrew got to have half a day off on Friday, for having to travel on a weekend prior. But I sure wish he could get another whole day off, (especially since the guy he traveled with got a whole one, and he never got anything for the other weekend he had to work). He's such a great worker, and an even better Dad. Y'all are lucky to know him. : ) 2w

kwightarmstrong Lilly wanted to celebrate her heritage today on Texas Independence Day. She's reppin' the Great Lone Star State, in her Scottish 'TartanTots' kilt onesie with the scrap of tartan her mama wore to join the Armstrong clan on her wedding day.
Thanks, @racharmstrong, for @a_armstrong_iii's TX plank, and @bevarm for the Kilt outfit.

kwightarmstrong Oh no! Leonard Nimoy has left the planet for good today. So sad. In his last days he reminded everyone to quit smoking, so that you may Live Long and Prosper. 1mon

kwightarmstrong I'm participating in populating FB feeds with Star Wars imagery today. ...And then decided it was too fun not to take this to Instagram, too.
If you 'like' this, you too will receive a "Star Wars" character to post in your Instagram gallery. (Then obviously you'll do the same for those who like yours.)
--
@a_armstrong_iii​ gave me Wicket.
Hopefully this counts; others are using fancy Star Wars art for their characters, I just went outside my bedroom door and snapped this from our little Star Wars shelf. ; )
--
Side note. Did you know Wicket's surname is Warrick? I'm willing to bet they named him such after the fine, little actor, Warwick Davis, who first portrayed him on film.

kwightarmstrong It took me way too long to post a little Thank You pic of the amazingly sweet gifts @janbodan & @eyeballplant brought for Lilly (and her parents). Seriously cute dress and perfect dandelion pajamas in her colors, plus some of my favorite chocolates and more! They were our first and only visitors after family, and it sure meant a whole lot to this new mom in those first days. Thanks again, sweet friends!

  •   janbodan You are so welcome! Hope she has the opportunity to wear her dress sometime! And we need to meet up sometime soon! Is Bentonville too far to come with Lilly? 3mon

kwightarmstrong We watched for the mailman all day today and were so excited to finally see our @SollyBabyWrap arrive!
Now mom can eat without having to first lay her in the bassinet anymore. Yay for even more snuggle time now! (Lilly's raisin' the roof in light of this new development.)

kwightarmstrong Finally (sorta) got this thing figured out; and not a moment too soon! (My first several attempts were not as simple as I thought they'd be). Lilly's been having trouble getting her naps in today. Knowing she immediately sleeps in it, I finally got her in it just now, and my back/arms are soo much happier not having to carry her around the house all day!
So right now I am So Thankful for Aunt Trish and her generous organic Moby wrap gift to us!
Yay for sleeping babies, and baby wearing!

This is our first Holiday not at family's, for Andrew and I, so it's not super eventful around here today, but we're enjoying the much needed day home together, and we wish all of you fine folks a marvelous ThanksGiving!

  •   crustyroll35 My babies lived the moby wrap, only way they'd nap. 4mon
  •   kwightarmstrong Nevermind, I spoke too soon. She just dirtied her diaper in it, and I guess all that snug pressure only left room for it to shoot up & out. So all that needs washing now. And trying to change that diaper- I have never seen her cry with such dispair! It was so loud and tragic! Had to pick her back up to console her (before I could get the next diaper on) it was that bad, so then of course she peed on everything. And I just had to join her in crying. 4mon
  •   kwightarmstrong @crustyroll35, do they ever not sleep in them? I almost worry about making her body sleep more than it means to, on days when she's taking her regular naps just fine. 4mon
  •   crustyroll35 Mine were never good nappers (or sleepers for that matter) so I learned to have a variety of napping methods: on me, in stroller for a walk (helped with weight loss!), moby, ergo when older, sling, in bed with me, car, you name it (notice none of those include in their own bed, lol!). They all stopped napping by 2 years and I was ok with that because so much work to get sleep. 4mon
  •   crustyroll35 Oh and in my arms while I bounced on exercise ball (during witching hour) 4mon
  •   kwightarmstrong All great methods :) @crustyroll35 4mon
  •   wholeheartedlivin We love our Moby! It's the best when they are itty bitty! 4mon
  •   kwightarmstrong Update: I can't wait for my new @sollybabywrap to arrive on Monday...it looks SO much more promising! 4mon

kwightarmstrong Lilly's first party, and coincidentally Mom & Baby's very first outing apart from the hospital! She turned one month old on Friday when our Mitchell Creative Team threw her a little welcome party. :) {Andrew's holding up Leslie who couldn't be there because her own 2nd baby girl is on the way any day.}
Thanks to @nerdiebirdie15 for the great photo!

  •   kwightarmstrong Was also a momentous day in that it was the first time I'd tried on my jeans in *months* ...and they were actually looser than before. Mamas-to-be, definitely nurse your babies!! 4mon
  •   janbodan You are such a beautiful family! 4mon
  •   loramoriconi You look fabulous! I can't believe a month has gone by already. Impatiently waiting until our first meeting at Christmas! 4mon
