Crazy Weather

Lets just say, that we got 20 inches of rain in 16 hours. We were in a tornado warning, thunderstorm warning, and flood warning. It started raining yesterday afternoon before I went to work. I went to work thinking that we were just going to get a little bit of rain. I was at work for 45 minutes, and we were sent to one room in the middle of the clinic with all patients and parents due to a tornado warning. After the warning ended we sent everyone home due to heavy rain and flooding. On my way home a couple of roads were totally under water and our subdivision was under water. Luckily, Dwayne brought home from work a big truck. I was able to get home okay. The water was up to the floor boards in the big truck.

Dwayne had the joy of the tornado warning with both boys. They sat in our closet for 30 minutes. During that 30 minutes Peyton managed to chow down 3 hot dogs and applesauce. (the steroid are making him very very hungry!) Dwayne was a little nervous mainly because I was out in the weather.

Needless to say we now have gotten plenty of rain. They are expecting possibly more tonight and throughout the week.

Kemah Boardwalk

We went this past Saturday with some friends to the Kemah Boardwalk. It was a lot of fun. The weather was beautiful. Peyton had his first taste of carnival rides. I think that he is going to be one of those kids that is not afraid of anything. He wanted to ride the wooden roller coaster and all of the big kid rides. He got to ride the train and the airplane. He had a blast. He of course cried when we had to leave. We will definitely be going back soon.

Busy Busy!

These last few weeks have been very busy. Peyton was allergy tested on April 14th for his eczema. The results showed that he was slighty allergic to peanuts. We were surprised. He has been eating peanuts for a few months and been just fine. Also, his skin was really bad this time last year and he was not eating peanuts. Who knows!! I have taken peanuts and anything with a trace of nuts out of his diet for almost 2 weeks now and have not really seen a change. We started him a few days ago on an oral steriod to help and heal the wounds on his wrists and the back of his knees. We have to have his wrists wrapped all the time or he will inch them to the point that they bleed. The steriod is starting to work. All of his wounds look much better. It has been a very frustrating couple of weeks with his skin. Please keep Peyton in your prayers that after he stops taking the steriod that the eczema will stay under control and not get worse than before. I have been doing research on this steriod and almost all the kids that took it got it back worse than before after they were done with the medication. We are nervous, but trying to keep this in Gods hands that he can live without being bandaged up and in pain.

The exciting news from the last few weeks, is that Peyton is potty trained. It happened a lot faster than I thought it was going to. He wore a pull up for about a week and a half and was staying dry all day long. Finally I just decided to put him in big boy underpants and he has done great. He has had a few accidents, but he has learned what the feeling is and is going independantly to the bathroom when we are home. We are working through the times that we are out and when we are at church. Overall we are excited and proud. He is very proud also. He loves to pick out which underpants he is going to wear for the day. I was looking forward to having less diapers to change, but Brady has decided to poop more throughout the day. Oh well!

Here are some pics and a video for the last few weeks. Enjoy!!

Peyton's First Dentist Appointment

I took Peyton to the Dentist for the first time this past Tuesday. He did really good for his first time. They took pictures of his teeth, and the Dentist looked at this teeth. They did not clean his teeth this time. They did not want to freak him out to bad the first visit. We go back in 6 months for a cleaning. They showed him the devise that they use to clean his teeth, and that was when everything went downhill for their.
Waiting Patiently for the Dentist

Taking pictures of his teeth. He was a trooper! I told him to bite the little device thing like Rusty ( my moms dog does) and it worked. He pretended he was a dog and bit down every time.

Laying down watching the tv that was on the ceiling. I wish they had that when I was a kid going to the Dentist.

And this was the point when he freaked out. He realized he was not just laying down to watch tv.

Astros Opening Day Game

This past Monday night my family went to the first Astros game of the season. We had a great time. Peyton had been looking forward to this night and has talked about it for months. Brady and him did great the whole game. Peyton actually cried when we had to leave 3 hours later. I guess we will be going to a lot of games this season.

Church Picnic and Easter Egg Hunt

This past Saturday our church had a picnic and an Easter egg hunt. It was beautiful weather and the kids had a great time. Peyton actually understands what it means to go on an egg hunt this year. He was very excited. He will get to go on two Easter egg hunts this year. We will have another one at my parents house on Easter Sunday.

Brady on the Move

Thursday, April 02, 2009

It has been a while

Things have been kind of crazy around here. A couple a weeks ago a cold went around the family. We all had ear infections. It was loads of fun. Now we are all doing better. Brady went for a check up of his ears, and they both have fluid still in them. The dr. just wants him on zrytec and we will see if they get better. We may be looking at tubes if they don't :(

The weather has been beautiful here. We have been outside a lot, which both boys love. Peyton has really been doing the same ol thing. He communication skills improve daily! We have starting potty training. It is going good. He is putting all his poops in the potty, just not his pee. He gets very excited when he doing go to the potty because he gets 3 jelly beans. Peyton is going to be allergy tested on the 7th. His excema is horrible and the allergist really thinks that it is a food allergy. He is thinking either milk, eggs, or wheat. We will find out next week. He will also be tested for mold and tree pollen. Hopefully we can find something so that his skin can start looking better.

Brady is growing like a weed. He is 18lbs 8ounces. He has three teeth now and is eating like a champ. He started crawling a couple weeks ago. He is still pretty slow at it, but he can get to something he wants. He is sleeping through the night, which is a god send. I am loving my full night of sleep:)

Overall, things are going good. We are looking forward to the summer and swimming the pool. Peyton is ready. We are also looking forward to the Astros opening day game. Peyton has been asking and talking about this day for months. He mentions it everyday and gets so excited. My family is all going next Monday. It will be interesting with 3 children! Hopefully it will be a good game. Peyton loves it when the train moves, but it only moves if their is a home run! We will post pictures after the game. Here are some pictures of the last few weeks.
