billibed for jaundice treatment

Parker man on his billibed. Thursday his levels were getting better, and we should have known today if he could be finished but when the lab called with results they just left a message to call back and by the time I got the vmail it was after 5. So now I'm not sure what to do... it costs us $100 a day to rent the bed and if we don't need it anymore I sure don't want to be paying for it over the weekend... 

He has slept on it great throughout the days but refuses to sleep on it at night.

baby belly

what I see when I look down - caught my silhouette on the back fence
when Aiden snuggles up to my legs I literally cannot see him beneath my belly, I can feel him, but I've actually tripped over him because I couldn't see the little guy.

{almost} summer sprinklers

after days of promising to play in the sprinklers, it was finally time to make it happen. the sprinkler would not stay in the ground but bray loved running up to it to try to make it stay upright. Aiden was mildly amused for a minute but really did not like getting sprayed in the face and he kept trying to take his shorts off since they were wet. I think as the summer progresses he will like it more and more.

I asked my baby for a silly face. I didn't know that he would actually pull one.

LOVE this little man.

Halloween @ Preschool

[best buddy James as a Drecko Glider, Braylon the Ninja]

[I may have suggested the costume idea to James the night before so my friend Jess had to stay up that night making the costume for him, but he sure looked cute! Sorry Jess!]

[I sold our couches so we went without for a week or so while searching for the perfect sectional. It really upset Braylon at first, because he was apparently attached to the couches (?) but he enjoyed the space and playing with Aiden with lots of blankets and floor pillows]

[Aiden trying to work like Bray]

[Aiden loves getting tucked into Braylon's bed each night for books and prayer]
