Well, we're off to Idaho in a few minutes, so I just wanted to mention that Amy will most likely be doing most of the info updates while Jake and I are out of town. I'm sure I won't be able to resist a little play-by-play and commentary now and again, but Amy will be doing most of the updating.

I got my first suggestion for the website this morning(aside from the wonderful post title suggestions offered by Courtney Price)! It went something along the lines of: " don't know how to spell 'their'..." Oh come on now, "I before E except after C...or when pronounced 'ay' as in 'neighbor' and 'weigh'... or on Tuesdays and Thursdays in April and May and I'LL ALWAYS BE WRONG NO MATTER WHAT I SAY!!!!! Sheesh!! I don't get any credit for spelling 'quasipseudoproantidisestablishmentarianismist' right, but I'm harshly criticized for missing 2 days of english class in 7th grade when they taught the whole 'I before E' thing!!

Just kidding. Thanks Mom. I can't run the spell-checker for some reason on this thing or it messes up the post with a bunch of goofy-looking characters--and I'm not talking about my brother Logan. Oh well. Also, I'd risk getting sued for plagiarism if I didn't come clean about the 'I before E' bit above--I heard some comedian say something like that once. How unoriginal, I know.

Anyway, now for the reason you're all here--Dawson is up to 4 milliliters of milk every 3 hours, with almost ZERO residual milk left in his belly!! There's a reason I call him 'Awsome Dawson'. Oh, and by the way, 'residual' is the nurses word, not mine(you know, the whole plagiarism thing). They've cut Dawsons' oxygen from 1 liter per minute to 1/2 liter per minute, and he's doing awsome!

They plan on taking the tubes out of Mallorys' mouth today, and hope to start feeding her milk tomorrow. These babies have really made some huge steps lately, thanks to all of your prayers and support!

We feel so blessed to have such good babies, family, friends, doctors, nurses...and the list goes on. Thank you all so much. We love you all.

This is going to get really cheezy everyone so brace yourselves!
I just want to thank Ryan! He has been with me for almost every second for the last 3 weeks and has really been my life support! There were some seriously ugly moments for him I am sure, but he never complained and he constantly supported me and told me how much he loves me! I will miss him so much over the next 6 days! I am so glad that I have you Ryan! You are amazing!!

Love, Aim

While your being bashed for your spelling mess ups. Let me just throw in one more. Awesome is spelled with an e. Just thought since its part of your sons nick name you might want to get it right. Ha Ha.

I think your an awesome writer anyway and you might want to consider doing it on the side. I would read your books. And besides they have editors for a reason.

Love you guys a ton.
Love Lisa

The Lindstrom Family said...!?! the mall?!?!?...during school?!?!?
I guess anything's possible! But it was ONLY 2 days. I promise.

George and Sondi-
I'll tell you, being able to talk with people about the whole thing instead of just locking ourselves in our own little world has really helped. We definitely don't want to hog the whole experience for ourselves!

Okay, so is 'veeable' with two E's?...or is there a hyphen in there somewhere? Help me out here...

Love-- Amy

Oh come on, she knows I mean well. After all, her Phase 10 game came in handy, and I know you're wishing she would come pamper you again.

Mall for 2 days? I don't think it was the mall unless mall starts with "v" and ends with "an" and is parked down by a river :)
