April 28, 2009 - Parents Day @ Preschool

I had to add this picture. They were doing a song about a bunny rabbit and they all jumped around and showed us their tails -- this is how Braden did it :) He was yelling at us through his legs! Gotta love the class clown!

Aunt KT came to visit today! She hasn't seen Blake since he was 1 week old - so she thought he'd grown a little too :)

Watching the Cardinals game together!!

Looks like today wore everyone out!!

Blake had to go in for his last RSV shot and got a heel stick also to check his oxygen and iron levels in his blood - that is why his poor left leg is covered in bandaids :)

Braden must have played really hard at school and all day long - this is how Chris found him when he checked on him before coming to bed!

Happy Due Date Blake!! Instead of being born today, you are 82 days old, just shy of 12 weeks. You are such a strong little boy and we love you so much! We are so happy that you are home with us and thriving!!

The NICU was having these shirts made up while we were there this time with Blake! I got one for me and the boys - I think it's so true :)

Oh how this boy loves his OREOs - he gets it from his dad! He always takes 3 out of the package and asks for milk - perfect snack!

Braden asked to hold Blake before he went to bed! He seriously loves his little brother - the love and excitement of having him home has not worn off - and I am really happy for that!

After puking all over his clothes (and dad's pillow and mom) Blake hung out in his diaper with us as we watched 24! He loves his binky - way more than his big brother ever did! He also got diagnosed with reflux today - and was put on Prevacid - miracle drug I tell ya! He was in pain when he ate and not eating hardly enough, but after one dose, it was much better!!! So we will continue with that and hope it all gets better!!

Auntie Emily was finally able to visit! She hasn't seen Blake since he was 2 days old! I think she thought he'd changed a little bit :) This picture was right before he puked all over her ;) good times! We really enjoyed her visit though and were so happy she came to keep us company while the other boys were gone!

As a diehard Go Big Red Fan, these pictures are a little hard to post...but I'll do it to make my husband and in-laws happy :)
Braden got to go to the MIZZOU spring game with his daddy, PopPop Dirk, Uncle John, Bapaw (great-grandpa) and Meena K. He came home with more Mizzou stuff than anyone needs ;) but I hear he had a great time! Bapaw was being honored as a former player and they got some perks for being his, entry into the practice field, weight room etc.

Trying to bulk Braden up!!

Meena C came for a few days to visit and help out!! Today is my brother Adam's 18th Birthday - man that makes me feel old! So before she left, she and Braden baked him a cake and decorated it!
What 18 year old wouldn't love a cake with Dinosaurs all over it and a piece missing out of the corner :) I hear he loved it!!

Meena and the Boys!

Braden wanted to go "camping" with Blake - so he held up the tent (blanket) and settled next to him - so sweet!
Happy Birthday Aunt KT - can't wait to see you again!!

In our family, the Easter Bunny hides the baskets! Braden found both his and Blake's this year! Sorry for the blurriness, I'm not quite used to having to shoot this big camera with a baby in my hands :)

Awww...Brotherly love!
