Adam has his 4 month check up today and is doing great. He weighs 16 lbs 3.5 oz and is 24.75 inches long. Nothing really exciting about the appt other than the dr is now saying that he will most likely has the lump on his head forever which totally irritates me. First it was a few days, then a couple weeks, then a few months, then it'll be gone by the time he's a year and now it's that he will have it forever. Grr! And I really still do not understand why he got the cephalohematoma in the first place. We've had other kids that the vaccum was used on and they never ended up with one, so what was done differently with him?? Poor little guy is going to have a lumpy head for life all because of me. :(

I should have known that it wasn't going to be a good day when I tripped going my front stairs on the way to work. I then proceeded to trip walking down the hallway once I got to work. I was careful when I walked down the stairs mid morning and made it down without incident. I then took another walk down the stairs mid afternoon without mishap. But wouldn't you know it, when I was leaving for the day, on the very last set of stairs before reading the garage, I would trip. Thankfully I was being cautious and had my hand on the railing otherwise I would have ended up on the landing in a very ungraceful way. As it was, I ended up kind of upside down and in the process scrapping my shins up pretty good and twisting my back and neck something awful. Needless to say it was a painful ride home.

One of the presents we received from my mom this year was some Friendship Bread batter although we have since renamed it Enemy Bread. LOL We made up our first batch a couple of days ago and I couldn't believe how many different ingredients it takes plus just the pita factor of mixing it altogether. We figured you can give it to your enemies and while they are engrossed in finding and mixing all the ingredients, you can attack them and they would never know what hit them. The bread is delicious once you persevere, though. I made up another batch today and this is the result (I forgot to take a picture of the first batch we did). It's so dark because the recipe we have calls to add a box of pudding in it so we decided to try chocolate pudding. We made our first batch with vanilla pudding and I think I like that one the best so far. I think next time we'll try lemon pudding although Kenzie is trying really hard to talk me into making one with cookies n cream pudding. Somehow, I just can't get into that one.

We always speculate that washing machines eat socks...last night we actually were able to get proof of it. That's a picture of our washing machine filter with 3 socks stuck in it. One really has to wonder how they got there. Hubby has the full story on his blog (and I stole the pic from him) ;)
