Pumpkin Carving

Last night we carved pumpkins. Meghan chose Cinderella, although it didn't turn out so hot. Caleb wanted Wubbzy, and Bart and I did a Red Sox one. They had fun, and so did we!

Hayley is 6 months old!

Hayley is 6 months old today! I can't believe that she is already 6 months old. We had her 6 month appointment, and she weighs 19lbs 10oz, and was 28 inches long. I think her head circumference was 45? Anyways she is in 97 percentile for all of it. At least she is proportionate! She had 4 shots, including the flu shot. Poor little girl! But she actually didn't cry as much as she usually does.
She enjoys her exersaucer, watching her big brother & sister, squeeling, and eating.
Here are some pics from each month!

Caleb and Meghan had a doctor's appointment yesterday to check their pneumonia. He thought they were doing well. I asked him if he thought we should get a flu shot for them considering they had pneumonia. He suggested we should. So we decided to get them one. I felt guilty because I didn't warn them or anything. I feel bad for the nurse, because Caleb screamed bloody murder while she was washing his arm with a alcohol wipe. I think my hearing is just returning. Since Caleb went first, Meghan realized that it was bad, so I pretty much had to hold her down. Some how I am the one doing the holding while Bart is watching...

We then went to pick out a toy, because they had earned all the stickers for their chart. Since they had a hard time taking antibiotics I made a sticker chart and yes, I bribed them. Hey, it worked and now I am 40.00 out but didn't have to fight. Another bonus is that then they play happily for about a day with their new toys.

I went shopping last night for something to wear for a wedding this Friday. I went with my sister and whenever I go with her, I spend much more money than I would if I went alone. I did find a dress, (even though I loathe them), I think will look decent. Speaking of which, Fashion Bug has a new system for their pants...pretty much it makes you *think* you are smaller, but I would like to know what size I really am.

Bart and I went to his appointment which lasted 3 hours, and found out that most likely the reason he is missing the spots on the vision test is because of Drusen. And because the tests show no pattern it means that it isn't linked to a stroke, or brain tumor. He has to go back in 6 months just to review. I am so thankful, that it is just Drusen. I think Bart was a lot more worried then he showed, and I think that it put things into perspective for him, and me. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I certainly have lots to be thankful for.

We actually had a weekend with not much going on and it was nice. Bart, Caleb, and Meghan all got haircuts and we celebrated my mom's birthday. Caleb and Meghan are feeling better, and back to preschool. Hayley is also feeling better. We have a doctor's appointment tomorrow to do a check-up on Caleb and Meghan to make sure that they are getting over pneumonia.

Caleb has decided to be Batman for Halloween, Meghan is going to be Cinderella, and I am not sure what Hayley is going to be. I can't believe we are already in October! In about a month we leave for Disney! I am so excited!

I now have 3 kids on antibiotics. Hayley was up most of last night crying, not sleeping, which is so not like her. I brought her in today, and she has an ear infection. Poor girl! I am running on fumes, I am so tired. I just want to sleep like 5 hours straight at least without waking up at all.

Bart went back to his eye appt, and didn't pass that test again and now he has an appointment tomorrow with a specialist. They said it could last 3-4 hours. I am not sure what they are going to do there, maybe an MRI? I am really worried sick about it. I have been trying to block it out, but I can't. Can you please pray that it's nothing? My stomach is in knots.
