Let's go fly a kite

We love the big grassy green belt up the hill from us. It is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
I love Target's summer section they have so much fun stuff for super cheap!

Bubble wands=light sabers

Flying kites. I got each one there own kite they loved it. I was impressed even Ryder could fly it on his own.

Mothers Day Weekend....

I was a lame picture taker over Mothers day weekend. But we had such a great weekend out in Temecula. We went out to Taylee's baptism. After the Baptism I went with Leslie and my mom to take pictures of Leslie going off to prom. After that we went back to Cari and Sam's house where we had yummy pizza's on the BBQ.

Anderson was so cute with Rhys. He just wanted to hold him and give him LOVES!!

Leslie and her prom date!

Briar and Leslie

Sunday was a great day as well. I woke up early to my Dad, Jeff and the boys making my mom and I breakfast in bed. Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. It was the highlight of the day being with my mom and sharing breakfast in bed with her. Afterwards we went to Jeff's cousin Zach's homecoming. It was a great weekend! I loved being spoiled!!

2 Months

Rhys turned two months on May 1.

He is such a little love. He is starting to be so much more alert and awake.

He has had rough few weeks. At his 2 month check up he got four shots and then the next day I was finally able to get his circumscion done. Then he got a horrible cold. The poor thing. I swear I sucked out his weight in snot. YUCK!

At his 2 month appointment he was 10lbs and 22 inches. Both 25% but given he is a preemie he is above right on track. Other things about Rhys......He is a pretty good
sleeper. He eats around 11 and wakes up between 5 and 6. Every now and then he wakes up around 2. But really I can't complain. He LOVES to be swaddled. He still sleeps in our closet in the bassinet.

He just started smiling a ton and it is so precious.

Every night right around 8 he gets fussy. He knows that it is his special time with Mom and Dad. As soon as his brothers are down he wants to be held and snuggled. and we gladly do!

Thursday evening I was making dinner and talking to Jeff like I do every night when Noah ran in to tell me Sawyer had hurt is arm really bad. I knew as soon as I heard him that it was bad. This cry was so much different than his usual cry.
We determined that him and Noah were playing on the trampoline wrestling Noah landed right on his elbow.
Noah felt really bad. We have since turned him into Sawyer's personal slave.
About 1 hour later he still wasn't using it and still crying and being really upset. We decided to take him down to the ER for an X-Ray.

After about 2 hours we finally got him in a room he finally stopped crying once we found wipeout on TV.
He had to take two sets of X-Rays. It was so sad he was in so much pain and just screamed.

Finally about 5 hours later we were on our way home with a temporary cast. The x-rays didn't show a break but that is common with the elbow and given how much pain he is in they are treating like a break.

They told us to call an orthopedic office on Friday to make an appointment to follow up.

We had an appointment for Monday but given how much pain he was in we really wanted to get him in before the weekend. After Many many phone calls Jeff got him in Friday afternoon.

They decided it was better to give him a cast so that he would heal quicker and not cause any more damage. He chose a blue cast.....

He has done better today with round the clock motrin.

What I learned....
Don't go to the ER for a possible broken bone you will wait 10x longer and they will just send to an orthopedic. I am not looking forward to that bill.

It is the worst possible thing to watch your child suffer. It breaks your heart in the worst way.

So glad the worst is over and it could have been so much worse!!

Noah's school does a carnival every year. It was so much fun. I wish we had gotten there a little earlier so we could have met up with more of Noah's friends. At least we know for next year.

They had a ton of cute games and the boys had a blast!

Sawyer had a ROUGH day so as a punishment he had to sit in the stroller I told him no games at all. But we gave in and let him play a little.

We probably shouldn't have let him out because he didn't learn his lesson. I am working on trying to stick with my punishments. We have lost control around here and I am desperately trying to take it back!

Dodger Day

A few days after busy season was over Jeff took the day off and we took the boys to a dodger game in LA.

The boys had fun. It was a long game in the heat but the dodgers pulled it out in extra innings!

Jeff and got new dodger hats!

The boys ate and ate and ate.

Afterwards we went and had dinner at the grove and walked around until the traffic died down. It was a fun day. Except we do remember why we never go to games. LA traffic stinks!!

Sawyer's front tooth has had a bruise for awhile. The dentist warned us that he would probably loose it soon. Then last week him and Ryder were wrestling and Sawyer's tooth was knocked completely loose. He kept saying he couldn't eat so Jeff pulled it out.

He is going to be toothless for a while luckily he is such a cutie!

Mothers Day Celebrations

By far my favorite thing about Mothers Day is celebrating with my little boys at school.

Thursday I went to a Luncheon with Sawyer put on by his preschool. They do such a cute lunch and I love spending time with him and his friends and hearing about his day to day activities. We had a yummy lunch made a craft and the kids sang.......

On Friday Noah's kindergarten class put on a cute mothers day fashion show. It was so fun to spend time with him and see him so excited to show me the things he made.

It was a great start to Mothers Day weekend. I so needed this day like I said in my last post these last few months have been rough. It was nice to be able to be reminded of why I do this and that I love my family very much. Although it is a huge challenge I wouldn't trade being there mom for anything!
