Bloody Nose, Lip and Cries...Oh my!!

So yesterday we went to Port Orchard to visit Chris, Addie & the girls, Katie and Connie. It was ok, a loooong drive though, but nothing compared to what is ahead. Julian had a lot of fun, especially once he realized that there was a kitty. We were playing in Katie's bedroom, Julian and I were, and Katie was holding Gabriel in the living room. Moments before going into Katie's room, I'd asked Katie if she wanted me to take G from her, and she said no. I went back to doing the US puzzle that Julian was doing, and about 30 seconds later, I hear Gabe screaming bloody murder (no pun intended!) I pretty much run out to the living room, and Gabriel had a bloody nose and lip! Poor guy! I guess he flopped himself over?! He thinks he's big. It was pretty traumatic for me, Julian couldn't have cared less, and my step-mom Addie was pretty stressed! There doesn't seem to be any permanent damage. Julian is 2 and hasn't had a bloody nose or lip yet...despite his absolute love for being crazy!!

Jessica and the boys and I went to Target in Gig Harbor, hoping to get some good clearance deals..but no such luck.

Today, we're packing up the last of our stuff that we're using, and then heading out tomorrow morning! Ahhh! It's so surreal. I am very excited to decorate my own place, that is going to be so much fun. I am not excited for the drive and to be SO SO SO far away from my family and friends. It's going to be tough.

Oh, I forgot that Jessica's little boy Preston was also at our going away BBQ.

And Gabriel weighs 18.1 lbs. I weighed him today on my baby scale.

WoW! JT weighs 19lbs 11 oz. I wish I could get him to grow. He is just a little guy. YOur boys are so stinkin cute! Good luck with the drive. I will be thinking about you. Can't wait for you blog about the adventure. :)

Wow--Andrew has had countless bloody lips AND a chipped front tooth. But he's never had an ear infection or thrown up. Yeah...I think I'll take the bloody lips.
