Somebody got a big visit from the tooth fairy last night! She was so excited this morning. She found $10 in her purple tooth holder. She told me that instead of saving for a crayola color dome that she’s going to use that money to buy me a christmas present. Bless her sweet heart.
I just love the little plastic purple tooth holder that the dentist gave her. She said from now on she wants to put all of her bottom teeth in it and she’ll put all of her top teeth in her tooth fairy pillow.
Look how long those teeth are! They look ginormous to me!
In other news, Hudson turned 3 last Friday (Black Friday). He keeps asking me if he’s still 3. Such a cutie! I’ll post pics from his birthday soon but for now here are his stats from the dr today before I forget.
Weight- 34.2 lbs 75%
Height- 39.5 inches 90%
George ended up taking him b/c I have a weight class on Wednesdays that is like personal training. Since I pay for the classes and I’ve already missed 1 or 2, I really hated to miss again. Plus I knew he wasn’t getting shots so that helped.
George said Dr. Dudley was a little concerned b/c Hudson doesn’t hear/make all of his sounds. He said she sang “la la la” and when Hudson repeated it, it didn’t come out right at all. We’ve noticed this before but I assume he’ll grow out of it. He also doesn’t make his “S” sound. I think it’s rather cute but I guess we need to fix it before he starts college.
Other than that it was a great appointment. Such a big boy! He loves being 3 so he can go to the big boy play area at the Y. That’s all he cares about!
Here’s one pic from his birthday dinner…
Miss Emma had a big dentist appointment today! She had a little cavity filled on one of her top teeth and she had not one, but two teeth pulled. Yep, baby girl has been put through the ringer! The cutest part was she had NO IDEA that he was pulling any teeth. They told me to not mention that part b/c it would terrify her so I only told her about the cavity being filled. When she finally woke up in the car she was super surprised to find two missing teeth! At first I worried she might be upset but she wasn’t. She loved being toothless and found it really funny that she was so numb. She kept asking me why her lips were so big & it was even funnier when she tried to drink a chocolate milkshake. For some reason it kept spilling. ha!
The actual procedure took less than 30 minutes I think. We had to arrive 1 hour early b/c they wanted her to drink the special orange drink to relax. That was the exciting part. We went back in the exam room and Emma just took a big swig of the orange drink without even thinking and she quickly regretted that! She held it in her mouth for about 10 minutes and finally swallowed it down. The rest of it did not go down that easy. She refused it for about 10 minutes and finally after lots of tears and pleading to go home, it took 3 of us to hold her down and use a medicine dropper. It was absolutely horrible and I wanted to cry. She was making it way worse than it should have been and it was hard. She was spitting it back in our face and fighting us with all of her might. That’s one thing about Emma. She’s a tough cookie! The girl does not give up! Once that was done and over the morning went much smoother. She ended up falling asleep for the procedure so it was gravy.
I still haven’t taken a picture of her teeth or her without her teeth but that is coming. Here’s a couple of pics from the office. She chose strawberry for her flavor and laid there so still.
I’ll post pics of her cute little smile and those big ol teeth tomorrow. She’s so excited for her tooth fairy visit tonight!
Somehow I’ve completely forgot about the blog. Nah, not really. I’m just too tired and lazy to update it these days. I think about it constantly and I stress myself out thinking of all the daily fun I want to blog about (mainly for the kid’s milestones/memories) but I just can’t seem to stay on top of it. So every month or so I’ll hopefully make time to post pictures and do a quick update but that’s all I can promise for now.
Emma is still loving school and I can’t believe she’s almost halfway through her Kindergarten year. I knew she would love school and she sure does. Last Friday the school had Thanksgiving lunch for family so George and I both had lunch with her. That was George’s first time and she was over the moon to have Daddy sit beside her. The girl loves her daddy.
I had volunteered to sit/be in charge of her class all.day.long Friday while her teacher helped with the spelling bee. Lets just say I’m so glad I did not get an education degree. I love love love little kiddos BUT not 18 of them that are so excited it’s Friday and don’t want to listen. It was mass chaos this mommy needed a glass or better yet, bottle of wine. I asked Emma as we were leaving school if the kids always acted like that & didn’t listen. She said “no mommy, they never act like that for Ms. Carter.” ha! There were a few times I wanted to crawl in a corner and give up. Yep, it was that fun. But I’m always one for helping out.
We had a super busy fun filled weekend! Friday night our church hosted a parent’s night out so the kids had lots of fun while we shopped for Christmas.
Then on Saturday Emma had a birthday party, I attended a Shutterfly party and then we attended the Polpanich’s 6th annual Thanksgiving dinner. We had a record breaking amount of people attend (close to 70) and we all had a great time. It was much easier this year since the kids have gotten older so we could relax just a little bit.
On Sunday we skipped church and cleaned the house. Then Emma had another birthday party at Pinkalicious.
Emma and I were gone most of the afternoon and when we got home I had to turn around and leave again. I helped serve Thanksgiving food for NICU families and it felt so good to give back. It still is hard to go back to that time and all of those scared feelings come back but then I realize how lucky we were/are. I got to talk with several nurses and they all loved hearing about the kids and couldn’t believe it’s been close to 6 years!
Monday morning Emma had to go to school and Hudson kept saying “I miss Emma.” I just love that little boy. He is such a vibrant happy little guy and he reminds me so much of George with his laid back style. He’s so loving and just genuinely happy. Don’t get me wrong. He can have his almost 3 year old moments but for the most part, he is just a sweetheart with a bunch of love to share. I can not believe that he will be 3 on Friday!!! Wowsers! Oh how I miss him as a baby. He was seriously the BEST baby ever. So easy. I’m so excited to celebrate his birthday on Friday!
Here’s our little birthday picnic that we had Monday morning. He loves to pretend play these days.
Yesterday after Emma got home we had some beautiful weather so I made the kids take a few pictures for me. They so did not want their picture taken but I won! Here’s some cute ones.
