My Bathroom

So, this morning I started reading my friends and family blogs.  My cousin Kelsey just did a post about how much she loves dark grey and would love to do a bedroom painted in that color, accented with yellow.  I was so excited because I had just finished my bathroom that exact same way last week.  So, Kels, these pictures are for you.  I know dark colors aren't usually very good in a small space but this I love.  It is relaxing and totally what I was in the mood for:)

Poor Baby!

Today Emerson had to go in for his little surgery.  He had to get some skin clipped and taken off from his little boy part:(  My doctor made it seem like we would walk into the hospital and be out the door within a few minutes....that didn't happen. We were there for over 3 hours.

We got there at 6:45am with our sweet starving boy.  He was fine for the first half hour but after that was so upset and bored and just wanted a treat and his sippy.  We finally got into his room at 8:00am.  He was a little happier when he could watch a kids show on tv.  A sweet girl from the hospital came in and brought him bubbles and books to keep him occupied until they were ready for him.  As soon as they were ready they put him in a wagon to go for a ride.  He was upset and just wanted me with him.  I held his hand down the hall until they told me I had to go in the waiting room.  This was HORRIBLE!  I don't think there is anything worse as a mom when your baby needs you and you can't do anything for them.  I had to walk out the door and he is crying, calling my name and reaching for me.  I immediately lost it.  

The surgery was really fast and within 15 minutes the doctor came out and told us he was finished.  They were supposed to come get me while he was asleep so I could be there for him when he woke up but they didn't.  Again, my poor baby was left alone and scared because his mommy wasn't there.  When I finally got to go in his room the nurse was holding him.  I got him to stop crying (for a minute) but he wanted his IV out of his hand really bad.  I got him his drink and rocked him in the chair for a few minutes.  He started screaming in pain and kept saying "owie" over and over again.  

The entire time we were at the hospital he wanted to leave and kept telling me to take him to the car.  He was so sweet after he was recovering he said "momma, I want my baby guy" (that is madden in case you were wondering).  Now we are at home and are working on keeping the tylenol rolling and lots of gause!  Hopefully he will heal up fast and we can forget about the trauma of today.

He did get a dinosaur out of it from the nurse and he loves it, even though you can't tell from the pictures:)

Little Madden spent his time with us at the hospital making all the nurses smile with his sweet dimples.  He was such a good baby today and we are so grateful for that.

This has made me realize how grateful I am for the health that we are blessed with in this family.  This is the first time we have been in the hospital for anything other than having a baby.  I can't imagine how hard it would be to have to go through something major with your kids, this was bad enough and it was nothing!

boy oh boys

this week we went to the zoo with the kids.  they had a great time but something scary happened.  Emerson tripped on some dirt and landed on a rock.  He had a huge dent in his head!!!  It was the craziest thing I had seen.  I kinda freaked out a little because it looked so weird but my friend calmed me down and he was fine.  This picture doesn't do it justice but it was really deep.  Luckily after about 20 minutes it started to come back otherwise i would have really lost it!

I decided to add some pictures to remind myself why having boys is fun and not just a negative thing like my last post:)
When they play together it is so cute.  They got this tent for Christmas and both of them love being in it with all the blankets and pillows
I love watching the excitement on Emerson's face when he is doing something really fun.  We took him to Peter Piper Pizza last friday with Grandpa Hall or as Emers likes to call him "Cappa"
Who wouldn't love seeing such a happy baby with the sweetest dimples ever?
I love making them match.  I know it is cheesy but I think it is fun and I gotta do it while they will let me!
Mike would pull them in the diaper boxes all around the house.  Emerson looks upset in this picture but they were both laughing and loving it!

Even though Madden is waking up as much as a newborn lately, he is so sweet and gets so excited when he sees us.  He starts waving his arms up and down and gets a huge dimples smile on his face.  Emerson keeps us laughing everyday with all the new things he says.  

Emerson is finally getting better!  He still complains of stomach pain sometimes but other than that I think we are on our way out....of that one.  On Tuesday morning Emerson has to go in for surgery!  He has to have his circumcision "re-done" in a spot.  I hate that they have to put him under but it should be a quick procedure.  I will have more on that next week!  Wish us luck!
