IWell here we almost two months after my last post! Mike left September 3rd to do his fall trucking runs and hasn't been home since. Being a single mom if two is hard work leaving no time to update the blog.
I'll try and catch up from where I left off. Sutton was baptized on August 24th on her dad's birthday. Her godparents are Uncle Tyler and Aunt Jenna. We had a great day and she slept through it with just a little flinch when the water was poured on her.
Labor Day weekend we decided to do a quick family vacation to the nebraska state fair. We went out on Sunday, spent the night in the hotel and went for a while on Monday. Blaise loved staying in a hotel. He was into everything and slept in bed with mike and I. Sutton did good. Both kids did excellent at the fair watching a few livestock shows, pig races, riding on a roller coaster.
Mike headed out right after we got back. The next weekend the kids and I headed to Des Moines for cousin Everett's baptism. The next Monday I started back to work. Thankfully it was a pretty easy transition. About the 7th or so of September Sutton really started smiling and talking and cooing. She loved just being laid on the floor and left alone to coo and smile.
While I'm at work Jessie babysits for both kids and it works out great . At sutton's two month appointment she weighed 9 lbs 11 oz. was in the 12% for weight and around 50% for length and head circumference. She typically gets up around twice a night.
Blaise had a dr appointment for developmental clinic where the evaluate how he is doing by several different doctors. He finally weighed 26 lbs at this appointment!! He actually went through all the tests without a single tear. His pulse ox was around 83, that is ok but if prefer upper 80's. He thought he was playing the whole time he was evaluated! They determined he is right on course for normal two year old. I was even surprised at some things he knew!!
One weekend at my parents we were able to go see antique tractors at carstens farm and see hot air balloons at an apple orchard.
Blaise's vocabulary has really taken off. Some of the things he says amazes me and cracks me up. His memory is flat out unbelievable. He'll remember stuff from long time ago out of the blue. It's fun because just recently Blaise and sutton have really started to enjoy each other. Blaise talks to her (and messes either sd is naughty) all the time .she follows him around the room and is always looking for him. He calls her sutton na/nay aka sutton Renee. He also tells you his name is Blaise Hartwell.
She does very good st holding up her head and does it hb herself now . She started really talking and cooing the weekend of sept 6th.
Last weekend we went to river city roundup. The kids and I stayed in a hotel room for two night . Blaise just absolutely loved the rodeo. He sat and watched it so good and yelled bucking bulls lots! He called it the horse show and was totally obsessed with it!!
