Gigi's Visit

On Tuesday Gigi came to stay with us for a couple of days.  She arrived around 10:00 on Tuesday morning and we went to straight to the store to buy groceries.


On Wednesday I took Will up to the courthouse to meet my friends.  Then we went to the office to meet Butch and Lori.  We also dropped his daycare paperwork off at the daycare.  I learned that he will be able to start when he is 6 months old.  I go back to work on July 20th so I will only need help for a couple of weeks.

After getting home, Gigi and I started watching Season 1 of Downton Abby. She made me a sandwich and held Will while I ate.

At 2:30 Will had his weigh in where he came in at 6.9 pounds!  He is officially back up to his birth weight.  Gigi went to pick Sam and Finn up from school while I met with the doctor.  Dr. Johnson told me that Will is doing so much better.

After the appointment we stopped at Kroger for cupcakes. For dinner Gigi made a chicken pot pie that was delicious - even the boys loved it.  We watched a little more Downton Abby later that evening.


The next morning I went to my 2 week checkup - everything looks good. Gigi stayed home with Will while I was at the appointment.

Thank you Gigi for staying with us and taking care of us!

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…
