Another One Bites The Dust

So we were having one of those weeks that just wouldn't end. But on Saturday things were looking up, Emmett was holding food down, we were all on the mend from a ferocious cold, I had gotten a few hours of sleep and both boys were in for their naps. Things WERE looking up when i heard a huge crash followed by Mak screaming. He had attempted to climb out of his crib..... a first for him, and had fallen out and broken his arm. What a bummer.
This was the cast he had on for a few days before they put on his new super cool blue one.
His gorilla got a cast too.
Mak was so brave and so good, and we were so proud of him. He thinks he is awesome which is good because he has to have it on for three weeks.
We love our little boys even if they are falling a part.

Raising Another Super Baby

If you have ever met Makray... you have probably seen him demonstrate his feets of strength. He is always showing off and Emmett is following his brothers example. The bad part is our recent doctors visit showed that along with Emmett's sever Gerd and troubles holding down his food he has LOST weight making him as quoted by doctors "failure to thrive." It breaks my heart and is a constant struggle, however as the pictures show he is a tough little bugger. He is the most pleasant little baby I have ever seen cooing and smiling and even laughing as of yesterday....at every chance. He is pretty tough despite his 8 lbs 4 ounces and has been rolling over for a few weeks and holds his own against a wild big brother. Friends and Family have takin to calling him BIG E and we love him all to teency tincy pieces.

I absolutley love this face... he makes this little cross eyed face when he gets overly happy or excited he just cant focus when he is this happy hahaha.

What we've been up too

I do not condone the killing of innocent animals but dave is really proud so wait ago davie!!!
Mak was totally obsessed with the deer we had to keep a good eye on him because he would try and sneak kisses... he spent so much time with it that while i was bathing him i found a tick in his hair. I almost bit my lip off trying not to scream and fortunately i got it off before it killed us. I was frantic and mak just kept laughing at my reaction and wanted to keep the bug... i saved it in a cup to prove to dave that i was not crazy and that it was time to dispose of the deer remnants.
Mak talks and talks more everyday... sometimes i think i am going to go crazy.. but it is fun to here new stuff such as.."emmett hold jesus darnit"
Mak had his little nose pressed on the window all day it snowed... he kept saying snow i love you
My bestest best friend in the world is getting married on saturday so we had a fun girls night out... holy smokes the break was much needed.
Mak is a great baby sitter... here he is wearing his howdy partner cowboy hat, and reading emmett a calander... and yes he is naked from the waist down.
It is no secret that i am totally exhausted.... but fortunately emmett is sleeping through the night most nights now... and makray is so much help(actually he is almost two and completely exhausting but he tries really hard to be helpful so i love him)

halloween and Emmetts Big Day

My little monsters
Grandma marsha sent us this witch... which basically became maks girlfriend. He loved this thing every morning he would go outside and say hi witch i love you, so one week after halloween she is still on our porch.... (he can see her out his window.)

Dave liked trick or treating more than mak
Yet another failed attempt at protecting emmett
It was hard to get a picture without at least one person screaming
It was such a special day for little Emmett he was an angel like always had we had plenty of family to make the day great.
Emmett is getting so big.
