A quick post before I head out to the store!
I had an appointment with my OB yesterday. Baby Everett (or baby Evwett if you ask Ember!) is doing well. Strong heartbeat and growing great. I have another ultrasound to see my little guy in 5 weeks and I really can’t wait to see him again! I’m super ansy for him to get here!!
I’ve been looking forward to Payson starting kindergarten for a very long time. This kid was born for school. He’s super smart and way social. He LOVES people. He LOVES kids. He LOVES learning. I think if he manages to keep his extreme goofiness under control he’ll be a star student. (I’m hoping!!) We registered him for school and I was shocked at how emotional I got. Ever since, every time I look at him he seems so tiny. He seems like my bitty baby again and I can’t believe he’s off to school!
I had to edit out a lot of information on this next picture and almost didn’t include it but it was at this very moment when I teared up in the school office! lol. There’s a place (second line) where the student has to sign his/her name and watching Payson do it made it super real and I was suddenly wiping my eyes and trying to compose myself.
Speaking of school, we went shopping for all three kids’ needed school supplies and oh my goodness that was not fun at all!! Buying stuff off a list for three different children with all three excited and talking a mile a minute and pulling all kinds of things off shelves (most of which weren’t even on the list) was overwhelming. It didn’t help that Ember was crying or whining virtually the entire time! She did NOT want to shop for the kids’ school stuff! (Getting a new pack of crayons just for her helped a lot in the end!)
New backpacks! It took all of two seconds for Payson to find and grab his Mario backpack! It also took him about one second to walk down the lunch bag aisle, spot a Mario lunch bag, and throw it in the cart. lol
We also got one new outfit for each kid for the first day of school. Payson got two more outfits than that just because he has less clothes than his sisters do. He, for some reason, thought this undershirt, tank top was the best thing he’d ever put on his body.
We finally got home around lunchtime and I was feeling like I was going to pass out with hunger! I hadn’t eaten all day (though I did feed the kids!) just because things were so hectic! I made us all a delicious lunch…
But this pure deliciousness was worth the pain. Oh.my.gosh.so.good!! Everett spent quite a while after this meal kicking up a storm! I’m going to assume that means he likes baguette and cheese and I need to eat it daily 😉
Now we’re on to today. Payson had his five year checkup (haha, yes a bit late!) and kindergarten vaccinations. He had four shots and was not excited about that! However, he didn’t whine or wince and most definitely did not cry! I was super proud of him. And just for my own sake, he was a total angel and charming during his appointment ♥
Oh yeah, Ember doesn’t watch TV for long so she broke away to color. I sat down and colored with her. She’s fun to color with because she’ll ask me to draw her something and when I do she thanks me profusely and tells me how she loves it 🙂
