Random Events from the Last Few Weeks…

I’ve forgotten how tired I get when I’m pregnant. By the end of the day, I am usually too tired to do much blogging. I tend to fall asleep on the couch around the time the boys get tucked in bed.

So although a lot has happened over the past few weeks, I haven’t blogged too much lately. Here’s some of the stuff I’ve neglected to put on the blog (in no particular order):

  • Isaac had his latest piano recital. He played a piece from his lesson book, and also “Plumm’s Minigame” from the “Legend of Zelda, Twilight Princess” video game. What a cool piano teacher he has to let him play video game music for the recital!

  • Jonny graduated from preschool! They had a neat little ceremony, and we had punch and cookies afterward. It was a little crowded since Jonny’s preschool class is big (over 30 kids), and there were parents, grandparents and siblings at the graduation. We are so proud of our big boy!

  • The big boys have decided they’re into Pokemon. Mark is not happy about this since he thinks Pokemon is nothing but a money-sucking device. I don’t mind so much since Pokemon seems to involve a lot of reading.

  • Since we had to retire Ben’s baby carrier, we found a new way to carry him around stores, etc: the umbrella stroller! Ben really enjoys it since he can see more of what’s going on. The big boys especially enjoy pushing him around in it, which can be a big help (or a hazard depending on the day!)

  • Ben has a brand-new Zevex Infinity feeding pump. This was supposed to be an upgrade from the Enteralite that we’ve had for a year and a half. There are a lot of things to like about the Infinity (it’s quiet, it’s smaller, it’s nicer), but there are a few things that we don’t like (the buttons are small and are all the SAME shade of blue. This makes it very hard to do any middle-of-the-night adjustments. Couldn’t they have at least put green and red LED’s on the “Stop” and “Go” buttons?) Ben of course doesn’t care, as long as he gets fed!

  • We’ve been grilling alot lately. The weather hasn’t always cooperated. Both yesterday and Sunday Mark had to dash outside to save our food from sudden downpours of rain!

  • Yesterday was our 13th wedding anniversary. Mark got me a Powerball lottery ticket for tomorrow’s drawing. I hope we win! I am so lucky to be married to my best friend.

    we have the same zevex pump for mason!! (be careful of the door..the little latch likes to break off at the most inconvenient times, but overall it’s a good pump.) we have had the same issue of not being able to see the darn thing at night!!

    looks as though you have been one busy mama! i can imagine how tired you are at night, but i know i’m not alone in saying that i love to read updates about your boys!! very cute pics!!

    Congratulations on your anniversary.
    Pokemon!! welcome to my world! My boys like these little pokemon things that sit on the end of your fingers. They only cost a dollar each, but my heart skips a beat when they tell me how many they have now;)
