Catching Up

I have been so bad at posting as of late so here are some pics of what we have been up to lately:

We went to our church Missions Gala the last weekend if April.  It was a lot of fun getting dressed up, even if in a maternity dress ;-)  We came home the proud owners of a front row parking spot at church!  Figured it would be a good investment for the first year of #3's life.

The next weekend we went to PawPaw and Manda's house in Austin.  They had some brand new chicks there, two of which the boys got to name.  Zach named his April and Mark named his...Markey.  :)

The boys still LOVE to take baths....along with their million toys....

They are very much close in age brothers...they wrestle and squabble...but sometimes there are wonderful moments of love too.

And the summer heat is already upon us....and so is the outside water fun!

I can't believe May is already almost over, which means it is just 3 short months away until baby brother is born.  We moved Mark into Zach's room about a month ago and it has been great!  He is in a toddler bed and the transition went WAY smoother than I anticipated!  They actually "moved in" together the night of the Gala and I didn't think Mark would go for it...but he loves sleeping in there with Zach.  They actually go to bed a lot easier, with less interruptions out of both of them after being put to bed.  And Zach is waking up far less in the middle of the night too, unless it is potty related.  If we could get him to stop waking up wet in the middle of the night we I would be much more well rested! :)  

Speaking of pottying too, little bro has ZERO interest in getting out of diapers.  Today he was running around the backyard naked and I got him to pee in the bushes a couple of times.  But as soon as we went inside, he asked to put on a diaper which he immediately peed in.  Scared of the potty?  I am not sure.  But I surely want him out of diapers this summer before baby comes.

And yes, he is still nameless. Nothing has stuck yet.  Thankfully we still have some time!

I spoke too soon

What started out as a yucky long incident in the car with Mark, unfortunately turned into a "family affair".  We were ATTACKED by the stomach BUG!!

It was a long and messy and stinky and ouchy week full of many loads of laundry and lots of cranky people.  And I am so happy to say it is OVER!

Seriously, I don't wish that on my worst enemy.  Matt and I joked (when we were both finally able to laugh about the whole week without wanting to least me) that the family stomach bug was definitely a test on the strength of one's marriage! :)  Taking care of each other, the kids, the house, and work...not to mention hearing and seeing things no person should see...and then waking up and still loving them in the morning...that my friends, is true Love!  If we can survive that, we can survive anything.  HA!

Looking forward to a nice long relaxing and puke plus other unmentionables-free weekend.

May the stomach bug gods stay away from your house and mine! :)

Road trip

Things I will never go on a road trip with kiddos without from here on: -garbage bags -hand sanitizer -febreeze -towels -plenty of wipes After s fun weekend in Austin visiting the in laws, we headed home right around nap time for a quiet ride home. About 25 min into our drive....blech! Poor markey tossed up all his lunch of Mac n cheese and milk. Not sure which was worse, the look or the smell? Somehow we have managed to avoid stomach bugs with the boys so this was a first. We pulled over and stripped the poor boy down on the side of the road. Full change and then back into the car...and then 30 mon later-repeat, and then one more time again! After that we tucked one of Matt's tshirts round him so if he did again, would mostly hit that. Which it did. It was a long smelly ride home!! Finally made it home and poor boy lost it 3 more times. Then that was it! No clue what he picked up but thankfully no one else seems to be affected! Hallelujah! :)
