Two weeks ago our sweet little boy underwent his first procedure and had to go under anesthesia to have an endoscopy. The doctor was concerned because he's still having reflux problems that he should've outgrown long ago. So, on a Monday morning we took our little man the hospital and held his hand as we walked into the procedure room, and we watched as they placed a mask over his face and knocked him out. Jack was so good- he didn't cry or scream or try and fight (the anesthesiologist was amazed). It broke my heart to see his eyes roll back and know he was out, but he only stayed under for a little while.
The weekend before school started Tony, the kids, and I packed up and headed out to Aunt Becky and Uncle Rex's house to play and to see Uncle Tanner and his new girlfriend he brought home for the weekend, Nicolette. It was wonderful to be able to see them and spend some time with them while they were in Texas!
Jack and Harper took a nap in the car and were so excited to wake up at the lake. They did great playing in the pool- both kids practiced their kicks, played on the steps, and splashed Uncle Tanner! I was impressed that both Harper and Jack played the whole time without their life jackets and even put their faces in the water without much complaining- they are getting a little more brave around the water. I think we're going to need to continue swim lessons this winter.
My dad and I took off to round up dinner, and Uncle Rex took the gang out on the boat. Jack had fun riding at the front of the boat and letting the wind hit his face. He was so excited about the boat that he didn't want to come back to the house.
Harper rode in the back with Nana, and my mom said Harper talked the whole time, chattering about who knows what.
After the boat ride, Aunt Becky pulled out the hose and the kids played in the sprinklers; it looked so much fun that Becky joined in too. Harper would run over and put her face over the water and giggle and giggle. It was the perfect way to end the day at the lake.
When we got back from the lake it was a quick trip to bed and then lots of rest and soaking up as much time with Daddy as Harper and Jack could get. Tony left on Monday to go out of town for a week for work, so Harper and Jack spent the whole day with him on Sunday. I don't think Tony minded being a human jungle gym too much.
One last note: Harper and Jack are officially 32 months old! That is hard to believe. It's going to be sprint to their 3rd birthday. I can't believe how much two little miracles have changed our lives in just 32 short months.
