Oliver is our gorgeous, not so little baby. He is getting so tall! He lights up our lives with his amazing smile.
Little Guy continues to adjust. He is so much calmer now compared to when he first came. Today he asked if he could have some hot chocolate. He then asked if he could help. He poured the powder into his cup and stirred it up after I poured in some hot water. I added some milk. He then drank it down very quickly.
Jonny was helping with yard work when he was stung by a bee. This is his fifth time being stung with each reaction being worse than the one before. His whole foot swelled up to the point where it hurt too much to walk. He had a low grade fever too. Ice, ibuprofen, and allergy medicine along with sleeping in between Mom and Dad for two nights has made him feel much better.
Though the swelling in his foot has gone way down, I think that if there is a next time we will have to take him to Urgent Care. Our home treatment probably won't be enough. :(
For Labor Day we made oven baked barbecue ribs, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and homemade angel food cake with strawberries. Adam was especially helpful with ribs in exchange for a haircut.
Julia worked on her Geology while she watched the kids swim.
We would have gone to the clubhouse pool but it was too crowded. I had Caleb drive down to check it out before we all headed down. Instead we filled up our little pool.
We added bowls of hot water to the pool so it wouldn't be so cold.
The kids had a great time splashing around.
I love how green and lush this area of our backyard looks.
