Spirits in the Garden and Newborn Pics
We enjoyed the end of last week with some stay home Daddy days! My mom needed to log some hours the end of the week so Carl took a few days off to finish off our 2 weeks(I wasn't supposed to lift or drive for 2 weeks after the c-section) We had lots of fun even though the weather wasn't super cooperative Thursday or Friday. While mom was off she also brought my grandma down for a nice visit, I think she was very pleased to get in some baby time while she was here. Friday we had Callie's 2 week doctor appointment she is doing great and is already weighing in at 8 lbs. 8 oz.(1 lb. 1 oz. more then her birth weight) Saturday morning my parents watched the boys and we took Callie on her first trip to Portrait Innovations to get her newborn pictures taken. She did a great job and had her eyes open for most of them, it is amazing how much easier it is to get newborn pictures taken as opposed to 2 and 4 year old pictures. After pictures we were able to cruise the mall a little while we were waiting, it is still so much fun to be able to go into the girl section of stores! Saturday night we helped Brenna celebrate her 2nd birthday. Sunday the weather was a little nicer so after a nice visit with the Monsons(my aunt, uncle and cousins) from Council Bluffs we took the boys to Spirits in the Garden. There were all kinds of mascots there handing out candy. Ty was not too sure about then but once he figured out they had candy in their buckets he would gain enough courage to go get one and then tell them bye( I am waiting to post costume pics until after trick or treat) After we visited all the characters we put the boys in their matching outfits and attempted a few fall pictures of them and a few with all 3. I think they turned out pretty well. Callie did great the whole time we were gone. This is our first week on our own with no one here to help us out. So far today has gone very well so hopefully our transition will go smoothly. We are continually thankful to God for all 3 of our beautiful blessings!
