Tu Tu a la Lu Lu

OK, the tutu was a little too big...but I had to play around. I'm thinking halloween costume? I saw baby ballerina slippers at target.

Busy couple of days... lots of doctor visits. Sunday night we noticed Aidan's one ear was sticking straight out from his head. Looked closer and the whole area behind his ear was red and swollen. Ends up he has mastoiditis, which is an infection of the bone behind his ear and is pretty serious. Luckily we got him in quick, they said if you don't treat it right away they admit you to the hospital for IV antibiotics. As it was the poor kid got 2 shots and is on antibiotics and I have to take him in again tomorrow for another check. He's got marker around the side of his head to mark where the swelling was for comparison. I should have taken a picture yesterday, my poor little guy looked aweful. Usually this is something that spreads from an ear infection, but Aidan has never had one...they actually think it might be from a bug bite he had on his ear a week or two ago and that got infected!

I've decided I'm not sending announcements out for Lucy. Time flew and she's already 4 weeks the time I figured out what I'm doing, ordered them, addressed them... it'll be Christmas. Hope no one is offended! I might make just one to put in her baby book so I don't have to hear how I didn't love her as much as the boys in 15 years.

Bed time!! Happy Wednesday!

We had Lucy's checkup with the cardiologist Friday... they did another EKG and ultrasound of her heart and all is perfect! I knew she was fine, but this has reassured me, no more nagging worries in teh back of my head...

And they weighed her, she's up to 9 lbs. 4 oz. Three weeks ago she was 6 lbs. 15 oz. when we left the hospital. That's a lot of chunk added, I'll have to get a before and after picture up here...

I haven't had much computer time at all in the last week, so I haven't uploaded any new pictures, but I thought I would share a couple from our heart rate ordeal.

Here is the contraption she had to be hooked up to on the extra night we spent there:

And here is what she had to wear her first 24 hours home:

I hope I never have to peel stickers off a baby's skin again! :(

I haven't had time for anything again... I swear I will someday get to emails, resizing more pictures for the web, getting an announcement done, blah, blah, blah...

Tim's family is here, having fun with the kids and us.

Aidan is sick, yesterday he threw up at some point during his nap, then had a fever the rest of the night. Today he was just cranky.

Duncan has been drawing and reading a lot.

Lucy is doing well, getting chubby. She's a real sweetie when she doesn't think she's constantly starving. She's been awake and looking around more.

I'll put up one new picture, it was the only one I got a chance to resize the other day before some other duty called.

Now I am going to sleep as I have 6 hours until the alarm goes off, and I know some baby is going to be hungry between now and then...

Looks like a smile here:

She looks so tiny on the couch:

Male Models

Can you hear the music?

I'm too sexy for my shirt, too sexy for my shirt, so sexy it hurts...

And look, they really do love each other:

Boys of Summer

Well, my goal of catching up on emails today didn't happen... My brother was in town and borrowed my internet connection to work from home. It was great to have him around all day :)

Tim reminded me that I have hundreds of pictures I've taken this summer that he hasn't even seen yet.

So here are my boys:

The joys of summer, sprinklers and popsicles

Their favorite activity this summer was running around out back while dad tried to squirt them with the hose. Usually wearing life jackets. I don't know why.

I've reached my limit on pictures, more to come later...

A real update! I've got the uploading picture thing down and have been playing around taking pictures of Lucy. I'll put some of the hospital pictures up later, but for now I want to show off a couple of our little princess... This is 100 times easier than the webpage I used to do, yeah!!
