The Police Officer, The Fireman, the Black Eye and the baby

The Police Officer- That would be what Kyler says he wants to be for Halloween. I am truly a thrift shopper- especially for an item such as a costume that my kids will probably wear once or I found a Police Officer Jacket at Savers, the hat at Kid2Kid and the belt, handcuffs, badge, sunglasses, etc. all together in a package at the Dollar Store. And there you have it, for less than $5, the most adorable police officer you have ever seen. And Kyler not only wants to wear the costume every second of every day, but he even talks in his deep hard to understand police officer voice!

The Fireman/the Black Eye- When Kyler told me he wanted to be a police officer, Brayden told me he wanted to be a Fireman! What 2 1/2 year old cares how they dress up for Halloween? Kyler sure didn't at that age, but Brayden does! And once again, my thrift find was the jacket at Kid2Kid and we already had the hat! Meanwhile, Brayden ran into the piano at my in-laws house and now is sporting a black eye, which truly makes him look like he is a hard working fireman! (At least that's what we are pretending).

And the Baby- My third son is already stubborn at only 8 weeks of age. He has continued to have apnea spells despite our fasting and prayers, so although I know the prayers ARE working, Keaton just has really bad reflux and is protecting his airways by actually holding his breath (the apnea) and he can't do that for 7 days before coming we are playing the waiting game. He will go 3 days or so without a spell, and then have one so we have to start counting all over again. I must say I am sad and want him to come home, but I know he needs the help the doctors can give him until he can get over the apnea. So we are just waiting...and praying...

I had no idea that you had a blog. I just stumbled across it when I was reading Jenn's blog.

I am so sorry you are having a hard time. I feel horrible that I have not kept in contact more. Please, please call me if you need help with your boys during the day. Things have slowed down here and I am more than willing to help you.
