2 Day Hospital Visit

Friday, August 29, 2014

During our hospital stay I was pretty nervous about the amount of weight Tess would lose. She had SO MUCH poop as well as a lot of fluid so I knew both could affect her weight loss. I told the nurses up front that I would not be giving any formula, regardless of her weight loss report. Thankfully when we left the hospital she weighed 6 lbs 10 oz which was only a 6 oz loss and they said that was totally within normal range :) Whew!  Our hospital has a policy where you go home for a couple days then they have you come back to do a check-up on the baby. We got discharged from the hospital on Saturday and had to go back up there on Monday. With the stomach bug hitting our house it actually all worked out pretty well for that appointment. The big kids were at G-Mama's to avoid getting Tess sick and Zach had come home Sunday so he could rest and feel better. He felt a LOT better on Monday but still stayed home from work to rest up and so he could go to the hospital appointment with

Keeping a Summer Schedule

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Today is Babywise Friendly Blog Network Pinterest Day! We are all talking about back to school so be sure to check out the other bloggers for some great back to school tips and tricks! Back to school time is here! It's always a time of adjustment and transitions for all families. Whether you have a preschooler or a high schooler, the back to school time is always a tad crazy for us all! I read a lot on Facebook about parents stressing over getting their kids prepared for the first day of school. They realize, a few days prior to school starting, that they've been staying up late or sleeping in late over the summer and that school starting means they will have to get up early each morning! This year was my first year of having a kindergartener. My son started kindergarten and my daughter started three mornings a week preschool. I also gave birth to a new baby one week prior to the first day of school. Yes, having a newborn around the first day of school was prett

Britt Monthly Summary: July

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Here is everything going on with Britt from July! Daddy Date:  Britt and Daddy had a special date night! I don't know if it's true for all families...but in ours we tend to hang out mostly with our same sex child. Zach and Kye do a lot of "guy stuff" together which means Britt and I get a lot of "girl time." We have to make more of an effort to do things with our opposite sex child and I'm so glad we take the time to have dates with them! Britt and Daddy had a great time at Zaxbys! Shopping Partner:  When Kye had golf camp, Britt and I enjoyed a lot of time just the two of us. I knew I was going to be homebound once the baby came so I wanted to go and do as much as I could! We had fun hitting up Goodwill and Carters. My kids LOVE Carters because of the lego table. Britt did AWESOME playing all by herself with the legos while I shopped! She wanted pics of her "tower" And she didn't even fuss when it came time to clean up!

Kye Monthly Summary: July

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

I know the blog has been Tess overload here lately and it'll probably be that way for awhile seeing as my world is pretty much revolved around her and her needs right now ;) Here is everything that happened with Kye in July! I was MEGA pregnant this month so there wasn't a whole lot of stuff going on! Date with Mommy:  I really wanted to make sure to get a special date with each kid before the baby was born. For mine and Kye's date we kicked things off by going to JCPenney. I randomly have started to really like JCP! You can get AWESOME deals. I let him pick out some clothes for "back to school" It's hilarious what he ended up with. A tank top (with "85" on it of course) that is way too big and probably won't be able to be worn for like two years, a yellow golf shirt, and matching socks. I ended up getting it all for only $8 total ;) Guess he has cheap taste like his mama! After our shopping we went to Steak and Shake for dinner!
