Hernia Update

Wednesday April 2, 2008
By

I took Adam yesterday to meet with a pediatric surgeon to get her opinion on his umbilical hernia. She told us what I pretty much expected to hear — wait and see. Umbilical hernias do have the possibility of closing on their own, and surgeons typically don’t repair them before age 2 or 3....

We had a wonderful Easter day! On our way to church We started the day attending a church in the neighborhood. They had an 8:30am service and I figured, we had a better shot at making an 8:30 service 2 minutes away than the 8am service at our church, 20 minutes away. Plus, IBC...

Sam has a Bear Buddy

Now that I have three kids to keep track of, I worry more about one of them bolting on me in a dangerous place. They usually listen well and they usually obey, but we all know we can’t count on a two year old to maintain a perfect track record. And that worries me...

I decided that Wendy & I needed a little mom-daughter time together, so I arranged for Grammy to come watch Sam & Adam while Wendy and I had a little date. I gave her the option of going to see a movie or getting her nails painted and ears pierced. She was excited to...

Uh… a little help?

We have deep window wells on one side of our house. Sam threw the green rake (and a ball) down into one. Then he decided he wanted them back. Apparently I wasn’t offering assistance fast enough, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. I didn’t see how he got in there,...

Spring has sprung!

Today is the first official day of spring. To celebrate, Wendy & Sam decided to play a little croquet. Despite the 30mph winds, they seemed to have a good time … right up until Sam clocked himself in the head with a mallet and decided he had enough.  Here are a few pics, prior...

Sam Loves the Layered Look

I blame daddy for this one. He is always putting the kids in layered clothes – long sleeve shirt on bottom, then a short sleeve on top. Not because he thinks they will get cold, but because he thinks it’s a cool look [Edit:  Mike says the cool factor is only part of it…...

Adam had his two month check-up today. He got FIVE shots, poor baby! But he was a trooper, he cried, but was quickly soothed by momma’s milk and then settled in for a 4+ hour nap. Here are the stats: Weight: 13lbs 1oz -> 75th-90th percentile Height: 25″ –> 97th percentile Head: 15.5″ (39.5cm)...

Wendy’s First Report Card

Wednesday March 12, 2008
By

I had my first parent-teacher conference today, to review Wendy’s progress in her first year of preschool.  She came home with a “report card” the day before so we could see how she had been assessed.  She received all Ms and Ps, which stands for “Mastered” or “Progressing.”  I, of course, zeroed in on...
