The firemen checked our blood to see if we had any carbon monoxide in our blood which we did not. The firemen checked everything in our house and the highest reading they got was a 3. He felt that we were safe and told us we probably just needed to get a new detector. They may not have gotten much of a reading because we had aired the house out before they got there. I went to Walmart and felt safe when our new detector didn't go off again. Phew. That was kind of crazy. We should have gotten a picture of the fire engine in front of our house that doesn't happen everyday.
Ryan has been kind of crazy lately and waking up sometimes twice a night to eat. I don't know if he's going through some crazy growth spurt or what. I went ahead and started him on solids this week since he seems to be ready for more food. I'm also going to have to hunker down and get more strict about his nap times because he's becoming a poor napper and waking up at night. This week baby Ryan is about to go to sleep boot camp again.
This weekend all the women in the family except for 2 sister in laws all met at my mom's house for a mom's weekend. We did this last year to throw my sister a secret baby shower and had so much fun we decided we should do it again. I was planning on taking Ryan but last minute I decided that I would much rather leave him home and relax in Arco. Luckily I had a big bag of breast milk in the freezer already so I packed my pump and was off. Best decision ever! Ha. I surely missed him and the rest of my family but I really enjoyed the vacation. We visited, watched movies, hit the Family Dollar, and looked at photo albums. Kelsey and I went for a run and everyone except for me did a coloring packet for a humanitarian project. I wasn't feeling it. Ha.
Scott was great to take all four kids for the weekend! They worked in the garden and watched Spiderman. (Gabby loves Spiderman 2 because she has a wedding dress of course). Corbin had a fun run with his school Saturday morning. My visiting teacher was kind enough to watch the other kids while Scott took Corbin to his run. Corbin did great and finished his race of one mile all by himself. Scott took him to get a treat afterward.
Corbin: talking about Elsa on Frozen, "mom, just so you know when she turned herself beautiful I saw her...she was bare feet." Ha. That's a relief.
Gabby: "Can you do it right now so I won't have to ask again?" Wow that is so Gabby, and I have to say she has a bit of a point.
Aunt Mandy sent Easter presents to the kids and one was a blow up flamingo. Gabby kept calling it a clamango. me: "Flamingo" Gabby: "Cla-flamango"
Gabby talking to Scott about her Disney Princesses, "I love Aurora, and Cinderellla, and even Snow White. But I don't like the girl with black hair (Pocahontas). I don't love her because she doesn't have a beautiful princess dress."
