Clayton Six Weeks

Hi everyone! We head back to school on Monday, so it will probably be a while before I post again. I bet you didn't know super heroes wear heels, did ya? Carter has bronchitis but he's getting better thanks to his medicine. Tomorrow is my six week check up and I am looking forward to being cleared for exercise. Can you tell which baby picture is Colin, not Clayton??

Colin's Fourth Birthday

Colin had his FOURTH birthday on July 25, which was a Wednesday, and his Batman birthday PARTY on Saturday, July 28 at Jump Party. We had a great time. YaYa was here last week with us and we did all sorts of fun things! Nana and Papa are here with us now and they are seeing the movie Underdog as I write! The boys have loved being spoiled by their grandparents, but next week real life kicks in and I will be on my own with the three boys while Andy is at work. Yikes!! Actually, I am looking forward to a little quality time with them before we head back to school on August 20 for in-service.
Clayton is four weeks old today and he's doing great. At his two week check-up he weighed 8 lbs., 2 oz. and he had grown 1 and 3/4 inches! He had his first shot and he did fine. Colin had his four year check-up and he had to have SIX shots--poor guy! He was kind of excited at first, but then he cried really hard when the nurse started injecting the shots and when I picked him up off the table when she finished he said, "What happened?" It was awful and I'm glad it's over. Colin is in the 75-90th percentile for his height and weight. He's been eating like crazy lately and sleeping a lot, too, so I think he's going through a growth spurt. Carter is our talker and he is hilarious! He talks almost constantly and he's very funny. He doesn't have much interest in Clayton although Colin is constantly kissing the baby and asking to hold him.
Andy is doing great--above is a picture of Colin holding in his new net a frog Andy helped him catch. (The frog died shortly thereafter.)
I'm sure I have missed a ton of info, but I am holding Clayton and trying to get about five different things done all at once...I am pretty sure this is how my life will be for a while!!
