You Should See the Other Guy

We've had our fair share of injuries/ailments around here lately.

It's safe to say that our pediatrician is on speed dial. It all started a few weeks ago when Austin touched a burning glass fireplace- with both hands. The only way I could get his to stop screaming was to sit him in my lap and hold his hands in a bowl of cold water. He almost fell asleep like this!

The next week, Owen was diagnosed with croup, which he recovered remarkably quickly from, thank goodness.

Last week, sometime during nap time rest time Owen got gnarly rug burn in his forehead and nose. According to his enthusiastic reenactment, he fell off his dresser (!!!). It's healing quite nicely, the mark almost gone. It looked a lot worse than this picture around day 3. We mostly kept it bandaged during the day do he wouldn't scare the masses.

Somehow, through all of this, we have managed to stay out of the ER. I'm so grateful that God continues to protect my little ones, especially when I can't! But I wouldn't mind a break from the owies :)

Yay Yay Yay! My favorite creamer has arrived! It's Christmas in a cup :) And the peppermint seems to soothe the sore throat I wake up with every morning in the winter. 

At the pediatrician's for his 3 year well check

I need to take more pictures of Austin! He's constantly on the move (or napping) so he's hard to catch. But he'll be featured next week!

Hope you enjoyed my week in pictures :)

An October day

It was such a gorgeous day today! Finally, the temps went down enough for it to feel like fall!

I had my screen door open this morning. It was glorious.

We had our standing playdate with Ruth, baby Joel and Luke. The boys are such good friends and play so well together. Love.

I also love sitting out on the patio enjoying the cool weather while the boys run around! And you can't beat good company (and good music on Ruth's phone).

Austin and Joel are hitting it off big time. Austy is so sweet with him. Here he was tickling Joel's feet and giggling!

The weather surprised me in the afternoon - we got a thunderstorm!

Mani during the boys' nap. OPI by Sephora - Studs & Stilettos. My first dark nail polish of the season. Brown, I have missed you!

Took the boys to Target after naps. Of course we have to stop by the toy displays. Owen loves these. Austin's not so sure.

Picked up a few little treats in the dollar section. A glittery pumpkin (how could I pass that up?) and glow necklaces.

Which kept the boys occupied for approximately 2.4 minutes while I was cooking dinner.

To tide you over 'til next post, here's a pic of my adorable boogers.

Not that kind.
