Today was not bad, necessarily, just... one of those days.
The day started out a little rocky, because we were running severely late for playgroup! We need to leave the house by 9:40 to get to playgroup by 10:00. Well, Adam wasn't even up until 9:15 and Matthew and I were sluggishly moving along. So, needless to say we didn't leave here until 9:50. We were still the first ones to playgroup. haha. Oh well.
Matthew and I had to leave playgroup early, for his 9 month well check, while my MIL came to take Adam for me.
Matthew's appointment went GREAT! He is a short little thing, though, and doesn't weigh a whole lot. He was a whopping 27 inches (10%tile) and 18 lbs (10%tile). His head, however, was 46 centimeters (75%tile). Just to put his size into comparison, at Adam's 9 month well check he was 2 inches taller and almost 3 lbs heavier! It really makes me laugh to see just how different they really are! I was very excited because he stood for the doctor for 5 seconds, all by himself! It won't be long before he's walking, so she says. He also passed his assessment with flying colors and she was very impressed that he talks as much as he does. (My kids are just brilliant... ha ha.)
A little sad news, however. Looks like his little clogged tear duct isn't clearing up, with the things we've been doing, so he's going to have to have it probed. YUCK. Apparently they take a small wire and push the clog through, all while under local anesthesia. The procedure itself doesn't scare me, but I just really dislike the fact that he has to be put under for it.
SO... we then came home to...well... craziness! Our street and all connecting streets were blocked off with large "Road Closed" signs and emergency vehicles everywhere. I didn't see smoke, so there wasn't a fire, but I couldn't see my house so I was VERY nervous. When I was finally able to get as close as possible, I found a fireman and found out that there was a gas leak. I wasn't allowed to go home; they had evacuated all of the homes and businesses in the area, and I wasn't even allowed back in to get my animals. AH! I was assured they would be fine, but I still felt bad leaving them in the house. Soooo Matthew and I went to my mom's and waited until someone called, to let me know we could come home. It was only about three hours, so it wasn't so bad. Pretty scary, at first, but not so bad in the end.... Plus, I got out of doing laundry today (yay!).
The best part of my day. Going to the grocery store. Not only did I get Matthew a cute hat. But just LOOK at what I bought.
I really think they need to think about the way they abbreviate certain items in the stores.
Oh yes, and look at Matt's new hat:
Congrats for making it through this ramble of a post. :) No reward, just a pat on the back for you! I think I need sleep; I am losing it.
