Playground Time Finally

We waited all week long for semi nice weather and it finally came saturday so we took advantage and walked to the playground, well Addie rode her scooter about half way and then got tired, so funny. Anyway I took some pictures.

This was a fun easter to take pictures with all the kids outfits. Mom was down in Salt Lake so I had to do the best I could with my camera and ability!!! Addie couldn't believe that easter bunny knew to bring her Hannah Montana panties and couldnt believe he gipped her brother with no candy.

Zach's 2 month Check up

Zach went in Friday for his 2 month check up. He is doing very well. He weighed 12 lbs 2 oz and was 23 inches long, which is how long Addie was when she was born! He ranks still 68% for his weight and 55% for his length. I guess he just seems so chubby because he is short! He received three shots which he did not like and let everyone know but he calmed down pretty fast. Kendall had to get her 2nd Hep A shot and she was such a big girl to go first and show Zach how to do it. She cried for 2 seconds until they put the Barbie band aid on it and she was fine.

Preschool Picture Day!

Addie had her class preschool picture taken on Monday so I took a couple shots of her. She got dressed up in her easter dress and let me curl her hair. She also put on her favorite Hannah Montana lip gloss. She is growing up so fast. I cant believe she will be in kindergarten next year.

The resilience of children

So last night I woke up to feed Zach and I saw Kendall laying on the floor of her room with a towel over her for a blanket. I asked her why she was on the floor and she said her bed was yucky. I went and checked and she had thrown up all over her bed and it was all over in her hair. So I gave her a bath and let her come out to the couch to watch her favorite movie, Shrek. She continued to throw up all night, her little body just convulsing from the dry heaves, but after everytime she was done she told me "I all better" Aren't children just the most resilient little beings ever. Well this morning she has been up and at em singing. She put on her new Easter dress from Grandma Connie and then her latest thing is to wear her bicycle helmet around her neck and just wear it around the house. I had to take a couple pictures and share them.

Little old man

Doesnt he look like the cutest little old man you ever saw. All dressed up in his Sunday duds.

My little turtle

Zach has this green outfit with a hood that I think is so cute on him, and I think he looks like a cute little turtle. I love it.

Zach's Follow Up Doctor Appointment

So the good news is Zach's lungs sound really good. The doctor said while the infection is gone his lungs will still be inflammed for quite a while. He is still working a little harder than normal to breathe but it is so much better. The doctor said that he will be more susceptible to breathing problems if he catches another cold or bug so I am going to try and keep those germs away.
He weighed 11 lbs even so he gained about another 1/2 lb in a little over a week. I was surprised he was only in the 68 percentile, he just seems to be a chunk. Plus I am use to hearing 90-100 with both the girls. The doctor also suspects what I already knew that he has colic. He loves to scream and cry. I am getting really good at doing things one handed since the only place he likes is the football hold on my arm. My left arm is going to get ripped while my right is a big ball of flab.

Zach Update

Zach seems to be getting better. He still doesn't sound great but he is eating better and not throwing up and he is sleeping better. He has a doctor's appt on Tuesday so I will update on that then. At the hospital a week ago he weighed 10lbs 9 oz, so he had gained 2 lb 9 0z in a little over 2 weeks! I am excited to see his progress over the last week.
