My grandma made this blanket for me while I was in college and trimmed it with Defiance College colors-purple and gold...I'm reminded of her every night when Jade asks for her "Grandma Truman B". I love that she is still with us in her own kind of way!
the kids made peep-no-biles with Nancy, John, and grandma this afternoon. They turned out soooo cute!
i took Leigh to the ENT today and they said he definitely ruptured his ear drum. So much so they they couldn't get a very good look at it to know what to do next. He has to put drops in twice a day for about two weeks and then go back. The kid is a trooper though! You would never know he had anything going on-he is still in his daily good mood!
It was really strange watching him play alone today while we waited to see the doctor...he loved the "new" toys and was so imaginative.
Leighton and I spent last night in the ER after noticing he had some blood in his ear. It ended up being a busted capillary and pretty bad ear infection. The poor kid never really complained of any pain! I felt so bad for him. He will be following up with an ENT tomorrow afternoon to discuss possibly putting a tube in that ear.
I tell people all the time that raising these five would be a great experience for a person who loves psychology-especially the nature vs. nurture idea in the development of a child. Here we have five toddlers who all experienced the same pregnancy at the same time, have grown up in the same environment, with the same morals instilled upon them, same rules and expectations, etc...yet they couldn't be any more different!just look at the difference in the way the boys pay attention to detail! Haha
We are so excited for the opportunity to team up with Mapleside Farms and present Paint and Pour! Check out their website for more information!
Every other Wednesday the kids get to go to church with Katie in the morning. It is good for them in so many ways! Today they packed a picnic lunch to have afterward. This is by far one of my favorite pictures in a long time!
