Baby Henry

On Monday at 3:35 in the morning we got a text from Uncle David saying that he and Sharon were heading to Vanderbilt.  I had trial that day so Gran kept me updated via text message to Sharon's progress.  Around 4:00 p.m. Gran sent a text saying that Henry was here!

After Michael and I both got home from work we loaded up in the car and went to meet Henry.  We found David, Sharon and Henry resting peacefully in their hospital room.  Finn and Sam were a little nervous at first.  Finn got tickled at Henry's noises - he thought that he sounded like a duck. Finn warmed up to Henry pretty quickly, but Sam was less impressed.

The evening became infinitely more interesting for the boys when Uncle David pulled out his WWE belt.  It was at that point that we realized that David hadn't seen the main event.  Despite our repeated attempts to instruct Finn to NOT tell David who won, we had no confidence that he could keep that secret.  Luckily, Finn dug down deep and didn't spill the beans.

Henry is so precious! He was the result of multiple hours of natural labor and 3 hours of pushing! Sharon did a great job - and David was, from what I hear, a pretty good helper. 

After leaving the hospital we decided to go to Five Guys for burgers.  The boys were pretty keyed up and didn't sit still for a second. 

We had the entire back half of the restaurant to ourselves so Finn took the opportunity to display his wrestling moves.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."

Surprise sickness

When I picked Will up from daycare yesterday, I was informed that several babies had gone home throwing up.  Thirty minutes later - Will threw up too - in the car! It was so gross and so smelly.  The boys were really upset. For a minute, I thought they would throw up from the smell.  Luckily, we were on our way to the dentist so they quickly forgot about Will's vomit and started panicking about the dentist.  You see, I had kept this little tidbit from them until right before time to go.  This spared me days of whining.

Oh, and Will just started eating carrots.  That is why he is orange. 
When he got to the dentist's office I took Will in to change him.  When I pulled his only spare outfit out of the diaper bag I notice that the "do not steal me" hard, plastic tag was still attached.  Perfect.  I decided that he would just wear nothing.  So he sat in my lap, wearing nothing but his diaper all while throwing up into a baby blanket.  It was a make it work moment.  And o…
