My Cowboy Boys..

Check out my cowboy babies! You can really tell they are brothers here!

Aiden at 5 months

Ethan at 5 months

I deleted these pictures. I have had so many hits lately from many different countries right to the post and that was it. I didn't feel right about having the pictures up at that point. Too many creeps out there.

I am back blogging, so if you have google reader or something like that it should still update you, otherwise *clears throat, MOTHER* you will have to go back and manually look for new posts. Enjoy!
Here are the links to find it easier
Aiden's Birth Part I
Aiden's Birth Part II

Aiden has been banded!

The appointment went great today, Aiden smiled and I cried. Talk about a role reversal! Seriously it was quick and painless, it just made me sad to see him, but then those cute dimples poked out and all was well in the world. When Ethan is in Mothers Day Out tomorrow I am planning on doing all the stickers on it. I will update with those pictures, but in the mean time here are some of him in his bare helmet.

Waiting in the waiting room Seconds after they put it on him, no tears from him.
Seriously did not slow him down, he chomped down that bottle like no ones business!

Lacey was chilling on the floor and Ethan and I were watching tv. He gets off the couch to take her toy away from her and throw it. He jumps back from it and asks me whats wrong with her toy. YUCK, its a fricking MOUSE! Big and dead!! I screamed, he screamed, Lacey pee'd on the rug and Dallas hid under the bed. Lacey is now in her crate, Dallas is still hiding, Ethan has had his hands SCRUBBED and the rug is outside on the patio, dead mouse still on it. Seth is going to have to take care of it. It was all I could do to drag the rug out there. Time for a new rug.

What do you do...

when BOTH of your boys are taking a nap for over two and a half hours?!?! You go hang out in the pool, kid free of course!!
Ahhhh, this is the life!! See, being a SAHM DOES have its perks!!

Crazy nights

Night time is always crazy at our house. You know how on movies and tv shows they always show the kids reading books or playing quietly before going to be for the night, yeah, NOT reality! After we eat dinner and clean up, we try and round up everyone upstairs at least. Then its play time, time to crawl on Daddy, run around like mad men, and basically try and wear Ethan out before he goes to sleep. Last night was no different, except for when we first went up there. Ethan was actually playing with Aiden. He usually clings to Seth as soon as he gets home till he goes to bed, and even though Seth still had to be there with him, he actually was hanging out with Aiden, it was so sweet. SO of course I had to grab the camera and snap some pics.

Cute baby!!

Aiden is wondering what the heck Daddy & Ethan are talking about
YeeHaw daddy!!

Ethan calming down for the night by playing a computer game

Still waiting...

Crainal Tech is scheduled to talk to Humana today, so we should *fingers crossed* hear if they are going to cover Aiden's DOC band today. Yikes! Everytime the phone rings I have been racing with Ethan to grab it. (Seth, don't get any ideas, I don't need you calling me all day!)

Night out for mom and dad, night in for the boys..

Yep, thats right, we got out for a nice dinner and Uncle Jarod came over to watch the boys. Not a big deal you might think, but Uncle Jarod is a single guys who probably could have been out doing a ton of more fun things that sitting our boys on a Thursday night. But thankfully he is in love with our boys as much as we are. Ethan LOVES Uncle Jarod and is always asking me if he can come over and play with him or if he (Ethan) can go and sleep at Uncle Jarods house. :)
Seth had been taking a MC course the last two days and tonight we went to dinner at Benihana with a few of his friends and the couple that ran the course. It was so nice to be out. I came home to two sleeping and happy boys, so that was even better! Thanks Uncle Jarod!!

Aiden will soon be sporting

the latest spring fashion trend called a DOC band. We were at Cranial Tech for over an hour today, getting Aidens pictures taken and then just taking with them about what is wrong and what we can do about it. Aiden will more than likely have to wear his helmet for about 8-10wks but could get it off early for good behavior around 6-8 wks. :)
We will be going in weekly for helmet adjustments. If you look at the picture below, you can see where the bones above his ears are slightly bowed out and then the sloping of the forehead and the flattened back of his head. Poor baby, I never realized it was that bad till I saw the pictures today.

Tomorrow we will hear if Humana will cover the cost of his Doc Band®. We are praying that they will, otherwise it will be a $3000 investment for us, oh joy!!

Cranial Tech, where art thou!?!

OMG! I wonder if the purposly tried to make this place super hard to
find. I am glad I left early, since I just spent 20 driving around. We
are headed in, thanks for your prayers and thoughts. I will give y'all
an update later tonight when we get home.


Little Gym birthday party

We had a birthday party yesterday for Annaliese and it was at the little gym in Rowlett, yes about an hour away!
Ethan has never been to a little gym before so I wasn't sure what he would think about it, but OMG he loved it! He ran, jumped bounced and just went crazy like every 3 yr old boy would do. The only part he did NOT like was when the special guest, Barney, showed up. Ethan made sure he was on the other side of the room at all times. When Barney lead the kids around singing and dancing, Ethan was sure to move away. But besides him, we had a great time! Thanks so much for inviting us guys!!
