Karl took Matt to the Jethawks game this past Sunday. The boys had a good time eating junk food and playing on the grass while I got some quiet time and made a valence for Micah's room. Matt got to meet the team mascots and Karl said he wasn't so sure about them. He wouldn't give Kaboom a high five!
Luke had his 3 month pictures a few weeks ago. What a cute guy!
I saw the MD yesterday and nothing to report! Everything is going great. I see the perinatologist on Friday for a follow up. Maybe I will be able to post a picture of Micah! I hope everyone is having a great week.

Karl and my dad had a great time at the baseball games over the weekend. Matt and I spent a lot of time with my mom and brother which was very nice. Matt has started calling church Amen. When we pulled up at church Matt immediately started saying amen, amen, amen! He listens for it during the service and after everybody says amen there is a little voice a couple seconds behind to repeat it! So far everyone around us has thought it is cute!
Micah and I are now 29 weeks along. We seem to be doing good. Nothing exciting to report, which is good! I see the perinatologist next Friday and am thinking positive that everything is progressing as it should. Have a good rest of the week. Good luck to everyone who is or has started back at school or work.

Karl and my dad are going to see the Twins and Angels play this weekend. They are attending a Sat evening game and Sun afternoon game. I'm sure I'll be able to post many pictures of the two of them after the weekend!
Luke had his first appointment with Cranial Therapies today in San Diego. Today was a consultation but he will be casted and fitted with a DOC band in the next couple of weeks. Luke has moderate plagiocephaly which means his head is flatter on one side resulting in some facial asymmetries. He will probably wear the helmet/ band for 6-8 weeks and go back for numerous helmet modifications until his head is reshaped. Louise and Jon also have to stretch him during the day. He will be under cranial reconstruction for awhile!! The prognosis is great and I am sure as a teenager and adult he will thank his parents!!
Jeanette is coming on Monday and staying for 3 days. I'm sure Matt is going to love having her here! Karl and I are looking forward to seeing her too!
That is all for now...have a good weekend.

The other picture is from Friday when we went to my sister's condo to swim. The two guys had fun as you can see! Karl and I attempted to see Harry Potter in the evening but I got the times wrong and it didn't work out. We ended up getting ice cream then renting a movie and bringing it back to my sister's to watch after the kids were in bed.
Today Matt, myself, Louise and Luke ventured to Ikea in Burbank. What we thought would be a stroll through Ikea with a nice lunch ended up pretty chaotic! Poor Matt exploded (from the rear) at lunch and I was not prepared with a change of cloths. So Matt ran though Ikea in his diaper with Louise chasing him trying to clean his cloths with an antibacterial wipe while I fed Luke a bottle. After brushing off some interesting comments from strangers who felt they must give us their opinions on seeing us juggle 2 1/2 boys we made our exit! I found some cute curtains for Micah's room and fish bath mats for the boy's bathroom. Overall we had a fun day.
I hope everyone is doing well. Take care. I have a MD appointment tomorrow and hopefully there will be nothing exciting to report! 28 weeks down...a couple more months until we get to meet Micah!

Not too much to report since the last post. I don't anticipate this blog to have many overly exciting posts, just some of our day to day activities.
Karl and I have been following the bridge tragedy in MN. Our prayers go out to all involved. We heard from Tom (Karl's dad) and Andra (Karl's stepmom) and they are safe.
This morning Karl ran with Matt in the jogger to the park which is a little over a mile away. Emma and I met them there and Matt played hard! We are in the process of transitioning Matt to one nap a day. The goal is to have him sleep about 2 hours in the afternoon. Lately he doesn't seem to be ready to nap in the morning and again in the afternoon. One nap seems to work good as long as he is busy in the morning.
Karl filled the play pool in the backyard this afternoon and Matt had a great time. He is sporting a Brazilian look in the pictures. Brad (Karl's stepdad) and Jeanette (Karl's mom) brought him back the speedo from
That is all for now. We are going to Canyon Country tomorrow to swim. Karl will take Matt in Louise's condo complex pool. Matt won't be able to wear his speedo because a swim diaper is required in a more public area! Karl and I are going out to see Harry Potter in the evening. The date should be fun! I hope all is well with everyone. Take care.
