Here are the pics that I promised from our visit to
the Christmas lights on Wednesday!Just so you know...it was in the 60s...
and this is how we were dressed!

Don't they all look happy?!?!?

There's my happy face!
(and one crazy eye)
So...Isaac had his RSV shots (yes...two) yesterday:( I put the numbing cream on him...but, it didn't help decrease the crying. She told me that cream is good for blood draws, but it's the liquid that burns going in:( :( :(

Our speech therapist and nutritionist came yesterday also. Isaac weighed in at 19 lbs 14 ozs and 31 in tall! HE'S GROWING!!! Ok...slowly, but surely! He's still wearing 12 month clothes...poor little thing. He is eating like a champ! While we were at the cards office getting the RSV shot...they checked his sats...and for about 5 minutes he was only 92-93...but, he slowly got back up to 95!

Chris just left us to spend the night with a friend....and Eli just had a melt down because the Star Wars video game was TOO HARD!

OH...Eli went with me yesterday to the eye docs. I HAD to have an exam and get new contacts...so, I made one for him (he keeps telling me that words on paper keep playing tricks on him). WELL....wouldn't you know that he NEEDS GLASSES! (we had to buy braces and glasses in the same week--I'll need to start working soon!) We're going out tomorrow to pick out new frames for him. He's not too bad...just astigmatism in both eyes and farsighted in one eye. But, they told me to start correcting it now or it would turn into a lazy eye. (and we already have enough crazy eyes in this house!)

I think I remembered all the important things that we've done in the past two days...boy, we've been busy!

Okay, what's with the gloves & hats?! Its in the 40's here (that's the high!) & I'm still sporting a sweatshirt! (lol)

Love the pictures! I can't wait to take Vaeh out to see the Christmas lights! She's really into lights all of a sudden so it should be fun!

Hope you all have a good weekend!

You make me laugh! I love the outfits for the 60's. I told Jon that we need to turn the heat on today...he laughed at me...it is around 50 for the high today and I cannot get my toes warm :(

Isaac is getting SO BIG! That first picture of just him he looks so old...they grow up so fast.

I also love the picture of the boys not looking happy to have the pictures done...so funny!

Love ya!

Gracie had to get 2 shots too! Poor babies!! Those silly shots are NO FUN!!

I am loving the bundled up in 60 degree weather. Too funny!

Poor Eli! He is having a rough couple of weeks. Braces and glasses....

If it makes you feel any better, Gracie is 14 months old and wore a 6 month outfit today. Her 12 month clothes fall off of her!

Give those boys...all of them...kisses from Texas.

Isaac looks so cute with his short hair!

And Eli is going to look adorable in glasses. I really need to go for an eye exam cause the tv is getting harder and harder for me to see....I keep telling Robert we need to get a big screen. One day...one day...

As for the numbing cream. I put that stuff on Arianna for her RSV shots too and it did nothing for her. I even put bandages on her legs to keep the cream from rubbing off...something I didn't do before. I just think no matter what we do and IM injection is not going to feel good. I will definintly keep it handy with us if we ever have to get blood draws.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. By the way...I LOVE the elmo tutu you made.

What would you guys be wearing if you lived in Minnesota?!

Glasses and braces in the same week, yikes! I'm so happy that Isaac is growing. Slow and steady works just fine!

Have a good week! oxoxx
