he walks with me, but not yet talks with me, i tell him he is my own...

is that sacriligious that I just took a hymn and made it about me and lucas?

Lucas took his first consecutive steps today!!! Yay baby boy! He's been crawling for about a month now and cruising on the furniture for a couple weeks and just this week took a half step by himself so we knew it would be anytime now. We now live in a gated community...

Videos? really she posted videos? is the sky falling? yes, i finally figured out how to get them from the camcorder to the blog. ha! wasnt nearly as painful as I thought it was going to be. I'm also finally emptying the memory card from the camera...hasnt been dumped sine mid-May!

I'm sorry the video is a little green i didnt know i had it in night vision mode. oops. Here is me figuring out it's in night vision and Jonah preparing for a rousing game of hi-ho cherry-o.

oh and the whirring noise... my pump. ha! I didnt pump at work and I was close to exploding. Lucas had just worked on a bottle at day care when we picked him up so he didnt want much and was getting choked and annoyed by getting sprayed in the face when he wanted a break. So probably too much information but well, now you know why. :) I like to over share.

oh and today I did the mommy finger swipe in his mouth...and came out with an old dead fly. It was beyond gross. I think it was the first time I've gagged a little bit as a mom. I get the gross out shivers just thinking about it.

You are probably just now getting over the shock of seeing a new blog post from me that isnt like a month and a half after the last one. Lucas is napping and daddy and jonah are returning cans to the grocery store so quiet time for mommy, wooo hooo!!! Ok so on to my fragmented stream of consciousness. lucas is awake. ok back to blogging.

oh gotta get more serious for just a little bit. I had my first mommy freak out moment on June 23. Lucas had a febrile seizure due to a fever and stopped breathing. He turned blue for about 2 minutes, I honestly thought he was dead. I've never been so scared in all my life. Of course, I was home by myself and my phone was acting up because I couldnt get the buttons punched right because I was frantic, then to make matters worse, when I called 911 I got no answer and even my neighbor who called from her landline couldnt get through. Finally I got through and we made our first trip to the ER in an ambulance no less, go big or go home. We have an appointment with the neurologist on Wed. to have an EEG done to make sure that there was no damage caused. Suffice it to say, he still sleeps with us. We are blessed and so thankful to the Lord that Lucas is fine.

Well daddy and #1 are home so I'll post more pictures later.

Happy 4th!!! (I think i'm gonna say that every 4th of every month. ha!)

Oh my goodness -- I'm freaking out for you about that febrile seizure!!! I was with my sister when her baby had one and I've never been so scared. I'm so sorry!! But praise the LORD everything turned out well! I know they say they are "nothing" if you get the fever down, but girl, I can't imagine! There's NOTHING normal about it is there?! Oh my!! Okay...

How bout that walker of yours!!!! AH!!!!!! Jackson just started crawling -- so are you telling me it's about a month from now he'll walk? NO!!!! These boys are growning up to fast!!!

And I'm gagging with you over the fly -- I guess it probably isn't going to be the worst thing these boys do and I'm better off not knowing the half of it I suppose!

wow -- still can't get over that seizure thing. I'm praying for all of you and pray that the appt on Wed all goes without a hitch too. Love ya'll!

I was so scared for you the night of that seizure, I wanted to cry. I think I knew he'd be fine, but I knew you were beside yourself. So glad it's over!!

LOVE the video. Want more!

Liz said...

That's scary about the seizure. So sorry that happened, but I'm very glad to read he's OK. I just had to tell you, first, your boys are too cute! I love chubby babies! And Bella (my 15-month-old)ate a dead fly, too, in the last week. Unfortunately, I wasn't fast enough to rescue her from actually swallowing it. Grosses me out, too!

Heidi said...

Kelly said...

Oh, that walking video is too much! Tears welled up as I watched! Then they fell as I read about the seizure! I'm sorry you had to go through that and can't wait to hear how great he's doing when the docs confirm it tomorrow! xoxo
