Babies, Babies Everywhere!

Greetings from Texas! Summer grand baby #1 was born on May 17! Rick and I flew down for Sawyer's birth then flew back the same day, as Rick was right in the middle of hay season. He had a "window of good weather" to be cutting, raking and putting up hay, (you farmers know what I mean) so we had to get back to the farm. But Susan's mom and dad stayed for a week then brought Natalie and Parker home to Danville to stay for a week, giving Matt and Susan time with Sawyer. Sanni and PooPaw kept Natalie for a few days, Nana and Papa kept Parker for a few days, then we switched! What a great time we had with the kids! I'll post pics from that week at a later date. My pictures from that adventure are on my computer at home! I am back in Texas now......so for now, meet

Sawyer Linton Millsap!
Sunday I flew with Natalie and Parker back to Texas, which was quite the adventure! Ever seen a "germ-a-phobe" travel with children??? YIKES! Let's just say, we used a lot of Germ-X! I think the funniest moment I had with the kids in the airport was when it was almost time to board the plane. Parker, who is 2 and in the middle of potty training, had not been potty in about 3 hrs and I knew it would be a while before he would be able to go. When I suggested we all go potty before we got on the plane, his response was what it always is - "But, I don't need to go". So my very creative and devious self quickly responded with, "But they won't let us on the plane unless we have all gone tee-tee. When we get to the man who takes our ticket, he's going to ask us, 'Have you gone tee-tee?' And if the answer is no, he will say, 'Then you can't get on the plane until you go.' You should have seen the looks on the people's faces around us! One lady was laughing so hard - she leaned over and said, "Well, I just went tee-tee, so I'm getting on that plane!"

Needless to say, we tried, but Parker still didn't go. He waited until we got to his house...about 2 hrs later! Way to go Parker! **Oh, to have a bladder like that!**

I will be staying here until Wednesday to help Matt and Susan "get their feet on the ground" with all three kids. Then...this Sanni is going home to rest up for Summer Baby #2, Ayla!! She will be here in 5 weeks - give or take a few days! Sarah and Ayla are doing well! Sarah just sent me the link to her maternity pictures - wow! They are so good! I'm sure she will be posting those very soon!

God is so good!
