Code Brown

"Code Brown" means what has occurred? Post your guesses in the comments.

Hayden and his Fun Guy, Momma Steady Finishes the Race and More

Hayden has a new friend and he is a fun guy. This fun guy hangs out on Hayden's neck. The doctor was not able to diagnose what type of fun guy it was on Hayden's neck. Either way, Hayden's fun guy will hang around for a little while. Melissa likes to rub ointment on this fun guy.

Momma finished the 5K run in Chicago. Way to go Momma.

Still going the motions of house buying, but it is progressing well.

"David's Warriors"

This Saturday I (and 6,000 other people) will be taking part in the American Brain Tumor Association's Path to Progress 5K. Anyone who reads this blog has probably clicked on my friend Skye's blog and is following her courageous journey. David, Skye and Alec's story is being highlighted by the ABTA. Here is the link to read their story and Skye's inspiring words...

I have had a few people ask me if I am taking pledges...and I am! No, bets on if I am able to run the entire thing do not count!

Thanks! Melissa

House Huntin'

For those of you who know, Melissa and I have been house hunting recently. It has been taking up a lot of time, but we are excited. Donovan and Hayden enjoy it to some extent, but then get bored and scream since they do not like getting strapped in and out of their car seats to go from house to house. We went to an open house the other day at a new construction property. The boys were running around the upstairs bedrooms and poor Donovan slipped and smacked his head into a banister. He was bleeding pretty good, like back in the day when they ripped out the IVs from their heads. The really nice realtor gave us a decorative towel to ruin to control the bleeding. He's got a pretty good mark. Unfortunately for the realtor, we will not be purchasing that house.

We also went up to the lake and opened up the camper. It was nice to be up there. We look forward to a shorter drive when the day comes.

The boys are talking a lot more. Hayden loves to call our "Wooooo" when we ask him to say "Rooo Rooo" to call out Donovan. Hayden also says brother and several other words. Donovan is still a little quiet, but he says some things and has the cutest "Bye" I have heard.

Here is more Dad . . . . Drive up and visit

My Dad misses his Grandsons. So I will post some photos for Him

New Friends

Donovan is walking around with his new friend "Duck." Duck is never out of Donovan's sight. Duck is a duck in a bathrobe. Hayden also has a new friend called "B'oon" It is a yellow Red Robin Balloon. We expect Duck to last longer than B'oon.

Creepiest Children's Book Yet!

Love You Forever, by Robert Munsch. Wow, if you want to read some scary children's prose, then pick up this book. It will chill you to the bone to believe that some people think this is a book that "children and adults will enjoy--over and over again." Just read it. It's like the exact opposite of Jim Croce's Cats in the Cradle, and unfortunately quite disturbing. Why we have this book, I do not know.

New Addition to the Fleet

Melissa went to the Madison Mothers of Multiples annual resale sale in Middleton today. She found lots of cool $#!} including a Combi twin sport savvy stroller that was lightly used, two booster seats (like a Bumbo, but for toddlers), a firetruck, a bulldozer, and other fun stuff. And like the rest of our fleet cars/strollers, this one will be for sale some day too! Way to go Momomma! We then looked around Dane County at a few houses and then went and saw H&D's cousins Sonja and Carson! Sonja and Carson were doing well and having a lot of fun. Carson is very mature for her age, and Sonja is a very happy little girl who is learning to potty train with some success.
