This past weekend we went up to Mac to meet Mr baby C! (tom's sister kaylee had her baby boy last weekend). Its so funny to see a newborn and see how small they are. You totally forget how small they were when they were only a week old. What boggled my mind was that my boys were half his size! Its sad that i dont remember even though i have pictures. So crazy. What was even crazier was that i was in no way baby hungry. like at all. Maybe because the first year of my boys life were one of the hardest years of my life. Whew. Glad its over even though i miss newborn snuggles! Ill just have to snuggle with other peoples babies!
even D wanted (and ASKED) to hold Baby Camden multiple times on this trip. even if it was for a few seconds.
Friday night we went to the high school football game. the poor boys didnt nap all day and so i took them home early and put them to bed. they past out. thankfully!
Saturday we went to Ayla's school carnival. Sadly i didnt even go in because the boys FINALLY fell asleep in the car. No way i was going to wake them up. they needed any nap they could get since they refused to nap at mom and dads house. those stinkers.
afterwards we headed up to the pumpkin patch. we got lucky with no rain evne though it was cloudy. The kiddos loved it and D even got to pick out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch (even though she hated that they were all dirty. shocking no? no.) The boys loved the hay ride the most and seeing the animals. I think this is the 3rd or 4th time we've come to the pumpkin patch and i think its going to stay a tradition! We love it. (also this year we went on the day they were having the zombie run. it was so fun to see kids and adults dressed up as zombies. some did their make up incredibly awesome and looked real. they even had tanks there too)
Sunday we went to church then Julie and I went over to Kaylees to take some pictures of Baby C. Then we headed to moms for dinner and take some pics outside. It turned out to be one of the best fall days ever! Perfect for pictures and the sun was just so warm. The boys LOVED playing outside
we then headed home.
now what i forgot to mention - D fell on her privates when she was climbing over the baby gate i had up at grandmas house. She said it hurt for awhile and i was going to watch and make sure no blood in the urine. etc. Well time went by and she never said anything. We went potty that night before bed and she screamed it hurt. Freaked me out. Again - i was going to see how she was in the morning. Morning came and she went - not thinking anything about it and then OW. screamed again it hurt to pee.
Well then while at kaylees house she had to pee but was afraid and she was freaking out because she needed to go so bad but wouldnt sit on the toilet or go in her undies. I finally got her to put a towel inbetween her legs and she went. She didnt say it hurt and then she was fine. I was hopeful. then we got home last night and she said she needed to go and wanted to use the towel again but after 2 hours of not getting anything out and blowing bubbles into a water bottle (i did this after my csection to help) we decided to go to the ER to make sure nothing was wrong. They ended up putting a catheter in which was awful for her but got a urine sample and emptied her bladder. Everything came out clean and she is just irritated and we need to apply butt paste (seriously... haha). We got home at 12:30 am and we are one big tired family. Today we havent tried going potty yet and im honestly terrified to fight her again to go. Im practically pouring water down her throat so it will be diluted and hopefully itll get better in the next day or so. Its like we're starting potty training all over again with this fear of the toilet.
anyways. that was our fun filled (and busy) weekend!!
here are a few pics of Camden we took yesterday!
