Life Lately

A random assortment from the last two weeks:

The Couvillions came to visit and Bradley showed Maria the train at Hermann park. 
They both loved it! When they came back to the house, they dressed up in Bumble Bee and Giraffe costumes and ran around the kitchen yelling "All Aboard!". It was hilarious. Sadly, I didn't get a good shot of the action. Here's the best I could capture:
Brenham came home from the hospital wearing the same "going home" outfit that his big brother, Bradley wore 2 years earlier. And the same outfit that his dad wore over 3 decades ago!
And since he's been home, he's done a lot of sleeping:
Except at night-- that's when he prefers to be awake.

Speaking of nighttime happenings, this was Bradley's recent middle-of-the-night adventure:
He woke up wheezing and having trouble breathing. Since we had a 6 DAY-old, we decided that Chris should go to the ER with Bradley and I'd stay home with Brenham. It was hard sending my first born to the ER without me, but I knew it was best. Turns out he had croup- a quick shot and he's been symptom-free ever since!

Between new brother and his ER visit, parent guilt has spoiled Bradley in a big way!! Here's a recent toy we bought him:
And a drive-in movie experience:
Lastly, we took our first "family of four" outing to Bradley's school's ride-a-thon fundraiser. Basically the kids bring a riding toy and scoot around the "track".

You can't really tell, but this is a photo of me and my boys (Brenham is safely tucked away from germs in the green sling):
All in all it's been an exciting two weeks!
