John still has not passed his kidney stone...yikes! I took him to the specialist on Wednesday and they said that he will need to wait a couple of weeks and see if it's passed and if not, then they will break it up with soundwaves, etc. He has been working from home all week - I don't know how he can get anything done with these two kids constantly running around! His pain comes and goes. Overall, he is doing better.
We had playgroup today and prior to leaving I made John take the little "playground" as Kate calls it outside. It's a swing and slide combo. It has been in the playroom since the winter and now it needs to go outside where it belongs! I swear my husband would bring those motorcycles in my house if I would let him. Back to the story, Luke was devastated it wasn't in the playroom anymore. He stood at the door and made such a fuss, then Kate saw it outside and started crying! Here is the picture of John comforting them:
Three side notes:
#1I know I have posted a picture of Kate in this outfit before - I love it, it's so cute, I got it off Ebay and she doesn't wear it everyday. Because we were going to playgroup, I wanted her to wear something with pants because she likes to slide and has trouble sliding with a dress or shorts on, hence this capri outfit. It's a lobster outfit, well I also found Luke a lobster outfit (not on Ebay, but at Gymboree). So cute.
#2 If you expand this picture you might notice Kate's nose has a strip of a band-aid on it. Kate scratched her nose BEFORE Easter and it has not healed up yet. The main reason for this - KATE! When she has her passy at night, she plays with it and ends up picking the scab off her nose. Many mornings she has woke up with a BIGGER sore on it from picking it the night before. I'm constantly saying "Stop picking your nose" "Did you pick your nose" funny thing is, she is not "picking" her nose, she's picking at it!? So the other morning, I said - No more passy at night until your nose heals up. I've also been putting a band-aid on it - All day, I do take it off when we go to Walmart. However, I don't even notice it anymore and left it on for this picture. She will even say - Where's my band-aid - it fell off. For real, If you have a better fix for the nose picking, let me know. The benefit is that for the last two nights she has had no passy and it wasn't bad. She asked for it the first night. The second night, she didn't even mention it.
#3 I'm the mother that puts my kids in matchy outfits...and they aren't the same sex. Is that weird?
Update on Luke - he is so funny, I found him today standing on the table on the kitchen/diner playset. I freaked out, he just laughed. I wish I had a picture of it. He is walking really well and trying to talk. He did start signing the word for "more" of course, when he wants more FOOD!
Have a good weekend!
