4 months old

Our little guy turned 4 months old yesterday.  He went to the doctor on Tuesday for his four month shots.  He is 16 pounds 13 ounces already and 26 inches long.  He is in the 87 percentile now.  We have a big boy on our hands.  He is sweet as ever and is such a good baby.  We are so blessed.  Do you love his hat?  This is actually part of an 18 month outfit I bought and thought he could wear next summer but as you can see the hat already fits him.  Guess he'll have the outfit next year and no matching hat.  Oh well.   Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  It has been gorgeous here this week!!

Weekend Wrap up

We had a busy but fun weekend.  We were off to Michigan for a bridal shower.  My nephew is getting married in October and his fiancee had her shower. The shower was Saturday at 1:00 (12:00 Chicago time).  We left in plenty of time Saturday morning but when we were about 30 minutes from my parents house we got into a total backup on the highway.  We don't know what the problem was all we saw was a sea of break lights.  Thanks to GPS we got off at a exit and took some back roads to get around it.  All was good but we rolled into to my parents house about 15 minutes before we needed to leave to get out to the shower which was about 25 minutes away.  So a fast clothes change and a refresh and my sister came and picked up my mom, me and my other sister.  Said bye to the hubs, baby and my dad and off we went but in my hurry completely forgot the camera :-( And can you believe my sisters didn't bring a camera either.  They don't blog so they don't take as many pix as I do.  We had a great visit this weekend.  Kyle has been such a good traveler and seems to LOVE spending the weekend at his grandparents.  My sister Cindy finally got to meet Kyle along with my little niece Anna.  She was so happy to see him.  Kyle was showing off his dimples the whole weekend.  I am so glad he is so good.  I hope he stays that way.  We have a long NC trip in our future I am a bit nervous.  I hope he does o.k.  We will be making lots of stops to get him out of the car seat for little breaks I hope that helps.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Busy Baby

Happy Wednesday!!
Well the baby has had a busy week. He has held his first board meeting and all went well (ha-ha).




And he sat in his high chair for the first time. He got comfortable pretty fast. I am glad it worked so when I am cooking or unloading the dishwasher he can be out there with me.





Also a couple of updates. In order to post pictures I had to go back to the old settings. I don't know what happened with my updated version but I can post again so that is good.  Then the best news of all we have no water in the NC house. One of my husbands friend checked and all was dry.  Thank you Lord!!  So it appears the leak is with the outside pipe. All water is off for now.  We have to head down there in a week or two to take care of this.

Gotta run some more friends from my work are coming over.

Hope you are having a great day.

I need your help!

Since last week when I try to do a new post the little icon to upload pictures is gone. I don't think I did anything I just noticed last Thursday when I went to do a post it was gone. Does anyone know how to get this back so I can post pictures again?

Thanks,

Linda

Sad Sunday

Well it hasn't been a good weekend here. Unfortunately our dog Sammy that we have had for 13 years passed away yesterday. He has been sick for over a year but Friday night he got really bad and was throwing up everything. By Saturday he was still throwing up and started having problems breathing. My husband gave him pain medication to keep him comfortable but due to his age and length of illness he wasn't going to take any drastic measures. Then Sunday the breathing was rattly like he had fluid in his lungs and in the afternoon he passed away. It is a sad thing but he lived a great life and we know he is no longer suffering. It is so strange around here with no dog in the house though. When I met my husband he had two dogs, by the time we got married we got his mothers dog because she became ill. So for several years we had three dogs. One by one they have all passed away. Shadow was 17, Heidi 14 and now Sammy 13. They have all lived long lives that is for sure especially with Shadow and Sammy being large dogs. I think we have decided to hold off on getting another dog right now with the baby. Maybe after Kyle gets a little older.

Oh and also on Friday (Friday was not a good day) we got our water bill for our other house and it was $400!!!! O.K. our bill is usually zero because we turn off the water in the house before we leave just in case. Hopefully there is no water in the house (one of my husbands friends is going to go in and check)but it appears there may be a break in the pipe from the house to the street. Our neighbor and another friend got the main turned off but someone is coming today to give an estimate on tearing the front yard up. Looks like we will be heading down to NC sometime here to take care of this mess. One of the joys of having a second house I guess. What a weekend it has been. I hope you all had more fun than we did.
