We carved our pumpkins last night, and I am still impressed with how they turned out. Will's request: he wanted a scary pumpkin. We are ready for trick-or-treaters!
We spent the day at one of our favorite places to take the kids during the fall: Lucky Ladd Farms. They have a petting zoo, corn mazes, tractor rides, playgrounds, a large slide, followed with pumpkin picking before heading home, exhausted but excited about the prospect of carving our newly acquired pumpkins. I wanted to … Continue reading #107 Fall Festivities.
There are some days when I wake up, and the entire morning runs smoothly. Granted, they are few and far between these days. So when they do happen, I truly feel so much gratitude for those mornings. The boys slept in long enough to let me get showered and ready. I was able to get … Continue reading #92 A Smooth Morning.
Today, was the follow-up appointment to the follow-up appointment. Today, we spoke with the neurologist who gave us the final reading on Will's EEG. As we were driving in for his appointment this morning, Will asked me if we had to get the ABG test done today. When I asked him what he meant, he … Continue reading #88 ABG with the Spoons.
This morning was a rough one. Will had his follow-up EEG scheduled for early this morning. This was a sleep-deprived EEG, so this required a little bit of effort on the parent's side to have this be a successful test. We were required to keep him up two hours past his bedtime, and wake him … Continue reading #87 Follow-Up Appointment.
My sweet little boys did so wonderful on the car ride back to Tennessee. After the stressful ride to get to New York, having a peaceful and uneventful ride home was exactly what we needed. We have an incredibly busy fall ahead of us. We have four trips we will be taking this fall: New … Continue reading #85 Road Trip Professionals.
I do not title this entry "the scariest day" for dramatic effect; last night was truly a nightmare. This Labor Day weekend, we decided to make a trip to see Andrew's family. His grandmother is turning 90, and his family is throwing her a surprise party this Sunday. We could both actually take time off … Continue reading #83 The Scariest Day of Our Lives.
Our boys spend a lot of their week in someone else's care, so it is nice to see photos of the things that go on during their time away from us. Today, we received quite a few pictures of sweet little Nathan and his days at school. As I walked into his classroom today, I … Continue reading #82 Daycare Photos.
When Nathan wakes up tomorrow, he will be a big one-year-old. This truth hit me like a bolt of lightning today, and I have been struggling to keep myself together since. When I picked up Nathan from school today, the door to his classroom was decorated with a "Happy Birthday, Nathan!" sign and pictures of … Continue reading #72 An Emotional Day.
Every Friday, Will's class is asked to bring in items that start with a particular letter. This week, the letter "C" was selected. Will and I had talked all week about what item he should bring to share with his classmates. As I was putting toys away last night, I came across his PJ Mask … Continue reading #69 Starts with the letter “C”.
