What a week!

I survived!
Yes, I did it... I officially spent a week with the boys alone all day while Kevin worked... It wasn't easy at first but it did get better... There were some issues I had like how to carry Lukas & Brok in from the car (grab Lukas's seat out of the car, put it in the garage, grab Brok & then Grab Lukas again), How to feed Lukas while trying to keep Brok from pulling everything off the table, & how to handle it when both of them screamed at the same time... But I am alive & we are no worse for the wear!
I Love this picture! He has the curliest hair ever! I love giving him a bath just so I can see the curls! Who do you think he looks like? Everyone when we go out says like his daddy but my aunt & mom say like me. All I know is he looks nothing like Brok!

This week was pretty fun... Nothing too exciting happened...Excpet for... On Tuesday night or maybe it was Monday I was talking to my mom on the phone & Kevin was watching TV & I happened to look over at Brok & I saw what looked like the insides of a wet diaper so I freaked out & then when I looked again, it was really VASOLINE! After Lukas's circumcision we had to put massive amounts of vasoline so it wouldn't stick to the diaper. I had left it on the floor many times before but this time I guess it was too much to handle for Brok. He had emptied the thing! It was all over him, his legs, the floor, his shirt, EVERYWHERE! & currently it is coating the bottom of my tub... Kevin took him in & scrubbed him while I cleaned up the floor out here... I thought I could escape the mischief becuase he wasn't mobile but I guess not!

Lukas had to go to the doctor again on Thursday ( a week after his 2wk appt where he weighed 7lbs 5oz & was 21in) because he had a goopy eye, turns out oit was just a blocked tear duct, but he weighed 8lbs 1oz with clothes on so around 8lbs so he is growing despite all the spitting up he does.

Friday Brok had his 18mo appt & he weighs 24lbs 11oz & is 33in long. He is solid! The best part of his appt is that the doctor thinks he is normal. He said that some people will jump to conclusions just because a child doesn't follow the "normal" and that he seems to be fine. We asked about the walking, he said that because he didn't crawl first but scooted on his butt that he will walk later, it's not a big deal. We asked about the talking thing (he only says mom) he said taht is fine, that if by the time he is 2 he doesn't say like dad or ball or a few other words he will have him checked. So that was really cool!

We also went to church for the first time since Lukas came... I forget that he is only 3wks old! It feels like he has been here forever! Brok got to go to nursery for the first time & he loved it! We checked on him several times just because we worried how he would do not being able to walk like everyone else & everytime we checked he was taking someone else's something or other! But he definately enjoyed it & it was nice for me to just have to worry about Lukas during sunday school & relief society!

This week will be fun becuase it's Halloween & my family is coming to visit! YAY! It is wierd that my family hasn't seen Lukas at all. I will be sure to post pictures of the obys! We haven't decided on a costume for Lukas but have some good ideas & I might have an outfit for him... Brok is going to attempt to be an alligator but he doesn't really car for the costume so we will see what he ends up being!
