Lots of Pictures :) Adam's surgery and more

Matthias and Adam got to meet a dog for the first time. Matthias liked it :)

 Someone is NOT afraid of the bath
 All clean :)
 Ready for surgery
 This made me laugh..... This is in the surgery waiting room bathroom
 Adam got some new hardware in his hips
 My poor little buddy

 These balls contain medicine similar to an epidural and were put in the nerves of his hips to block the pain.

 Finally holding my baby. It was not an easy task :(

 His little feet are so swollen
 Everyone keeps asking.... here is what diaper changing looks like. This hole wraps around to the back also.

 I think he looks pretty comfy..... I think this was 3 days post surgery and we were still in the hospital 
 Finally got some visitors 
 I think he liked having company

 Wagon ride :)


 They had to make his cast bigger, so they sawed it open and inserted this wedge.
As if the cast wasn't awkward enough :P
 Poppy and Grandma came to visit

 Going home... finally
 Our fun new car seat
 Someone looks excited to be home!
 Matthias loves building with anything he can find....Shoes are his favorite though.
I call this a shoe choo train
 Loving being home with my girls
 All of our new medical equipment... an oximeter

 oxygen tank and carrying bag
 Alyssa wanted a picture lol
 8 spare travel tanks 
 an oxygen machine

 This is why we need all that stuff.... oxygen saturation in the 70s
 I was sleeping on the couch to keep an eye on Adam and 2 little ones hijacked my bed
 So, I have decided that I need to make teaching Matthias the difference between boy and girl colors a priority :)
 This mask came in the mail and Matthias liked it lol
 Daddy taught Matthias to feed himself
 He did awesome
 We found a costume that will work for Adam
 Mean Daddy scared Matthias
 Poppy and Grandma took us to Chuck E Cheese. 
Matthias loved it!!!! Even though the pictures don't look like it.

 Alyssa wanted Adam to play animals with her...

Also, I am pretty sure I adopted mini Hulk.
Matthias tore his bedroom door off then hinges.
He was building against it and it made him mad so he just ripped it off the hinges.
A few weeks ago he punched my dad's cupboard door and split the wood.


  1. ans on top of all that... how on earth did you move ! ???????

  2. I've been reading your blog since I first discovered RR like about two months ago, and you were just home. I love seeing the updates! Good luck to your little men.
