Laughing is what I really love to do and today on Ellen I was laughing so hard, I was crying. That is the best feeling:) I remember seeing this episode a long time ago, but had to share this clip with you. Hope it makes you laugh so hard you cry!
(You might want to go down to the music at the bottom of my blog and press pause to hear the sound)
Can someone please get me one of these someday! Seriously!
Ivan turned a week today at 1:09pm. How fast time really does go. Ivan sleeps ALOT and is eating really good. He does have Jaundice, you can tell in his eyes. We really need to get outside more. The jaundice really scares me, it can damage the brain if it gets too bad. Thursday, both the kids go to the doctor, so we will see what our doctor tells us on Ivan.
While Ivan was sleeping Elle and I painted some small pots and she was really into it. I was very impressed at how well she did, Patrick and I are very artistic. You never know, she could be our next famous painter! haha
When Patrick got home from work we all went on a walk, it probably was a little long for me. However I was feeling fine after I relaxed at home! I was getting Elle ready for bed, she always picks a book out. Well Ivan started to fuss, so I went to get him, the three of us read. I had Ivan laying on Elles bed and I would see him smile. It was like he was enjoying the 101 Dalmatian book as much as Elle was, too cute! Patrick could not witness this for he had to go back into work for an hour to get the pharmacy caught up:(
Anyways, here are the photos from her painting and then some photos of Ivan at a week old! Too bad, I did not have my camera during story time. Oh well, enjoy!
This weekend was a great one! Nice and laid back, yes, I could not help myself and did clean, do laundry and the usual. I did relax ALOT though too. I had the help of my brother, he was here to help me with Elle, clean, chauffer me around town, etc!
I gave both babies a bath and what fun that was. Ivan’s was quick, but Elle was so sweet. She kept trying to give him her alphabet letters to play with because he was crying. Here are the pictures from Ivan and Elle’s first bath together, enjoy!
Elle turned 2 today and boy did she have a good day. She was in such a good mood and every time you asked her if it was her birthday she said “yes.” It was really cute. We had the family over in the afternoon to help celebrate her turning 2. We ordered pizza and laughed alot and had a good time. Here are some pics from Elles birthday, enjoy!
We are SO EXCITED to have A BOY!!! Can you believe we have two kids?! One of each too! Ivan was born on Monday, April 20th, 2009 at 1:09pm. He weighed 7lbs and 4oz and was 19 1/4″ long.
I had to have a repeat c-section, since Elle was an emergency two years ago. It was really not as bad this time around. I made the whole procedure worse in my head than it actually turned out being. I received a spinal tap, which was less traumatic than getting an epidural. All my Dr’s were really great, my OB of course!
This time around Patrick took video of the surgery, I have yet to watch it. I will soon though, with my fingers over my eyes for all the blood parts. He took some great photos too, which you will see.
I was in the hospital for three days, I have a heart condition and had two tests done. My heart has a bigymeny beat(an abnormal heart rhythm). So I had an EKG and an ecocardiogram done. Nothing new to me, but they of course have to make sure nothing can happen to me. We got home Thursday, the 23rd at 5:30pm.
Most of my family was at the hospital on delivery day. Unfortunately we were missing my mom, sister, mother and father-in law and sister-in laws. Most of them will be coming to visit here shortly, which I am so excited about! I can’t wait for everyone to meet my little munchin man!
My wonderful MOPS girls are bringing us meals everyother day for a week, till my mom gets here. We had a wonderful meal from my friend Yaneth last night! Thank you!
Today, Patrick went to work at noon and Elle, Ivan and I have done really well alone. Elle is way more active now, so I feel bad. I would like to play with her outside, but that will have to wait. Patrick bought her a bucket and he filled it with water last night. She has a little pool, the video is below of her playing in it last night. She did play in it this morning and she absolutely loves it.
My brother is coming tonight to stay the weekend and help me with Elle, since Patrick works all weekend. So she will get to play and get her energy out!
At first, I did not think he looked at all like Elle. For one, she had NO HAIR, he has TONS! Although, the more and more I studied him, the more they really look alike. My next post, I will put pics up comparing their looks! That will be fun:)
