Sad.. I have no idea where the days and weeks go... It feels like I just typed something in here and it looks like it has been two weeks!!! I will update the best I can...

Most importantly, Hudson is sleeping through the night. The night after my last blog he started sleeping through. I actually have heard him cry a couple of times here and there, but only for a short time and not hard. It has been wonderful! He is sleeping later too, so we haven't gotten up before 6:00 in a while now. Hattie is still sleeping great. All night, every night. She doesn't move all night either, still sleeps in her boppy. Hudson is all over his bed.

Wyatt on the other hand sleeps terrible. He dreams constantly about bad guys either putting him in a tub (a reaccurring one), or fighting him, or eating him ( his newest one). He cries out a lot and comes in our room a lot. He usually ends up at the bottom of the bed and never, ever sleeps with any covers on. WILD. But, he gets that honestly, I was the same way growing up.

Our second week of camping was SO MUCH better. The babies were both very good, and entertained themselves much more. Both babies slept all night long and Wyatt was locked in, so no trips out for him either.

Of course we were not without incident.. Saturday morning I had the babies playing on my bed while I was getting things organized and then getting myself ready. Ben was watching them while I was in the bathroom. I heard Ben talking to them and then heard him make a noise that made me think something wasn't right. I came running out to see him running out of the camper... HUDSON HAD FALLEN OUT OF THE CAMPER. The bed snaps are broke on the canvas, therefore leaving a gap behind the beds to the ground, about a 4 foot fall to the pavement below. There was no crying as we came out of the camper, the worst thing for me... as we got to Hudson he started to cry. He was laying in a twisted position with his face on the pavement. We picked him up and carried him inside, stripping all of his clothes off. He had marks on his head, a big bruise/red mark on his back and a bruise on his leg. We debated the er and gave him some tylenol to help calm him. Luckily my brother in law Scott is an emt and came over to check him out for us. He is fine now.... I was an emotional wreck... shaking like crazy. Ben and I realize how lucky we were. It could have been so bad. We actually think he fell on his butt and hit his back on the way down, which then caused him to hit his head a little. You better believe we are getting them fixed asap.

Our day on the water was nice. We took the easy up which was a great way to keep the sun off the babies. Both got in the water for a while. Wyatt loved the water and loved having Rylee and Alyssa there to play with.

We woke up that Sunday to rain and started packing up. Sunday night we went to Zach's tball game. It was a major social event!!! Crazy how all the people we used to party with are nowing gathering at tball games...

The babies are starting to eat crackers now. Hattie still will not eat baby food. I keep meaning to tape her trying it... we could probably win funniest home videos with it..

Within the last week, Hudson is officially starting to crawl. Starting last Sunday, he would actually drag himself to wear he would want to go. He is still slow, but he is mobile. No, Hattie is not even close! She cracks us up! She is so noisy, and loves to hit toys together. But she hardly ever even rolls any more, and definitely doesn't want to crawl...

Hudson now has two teeth. He second one came in while we were camping, on the 13th of June. So, he now has the two bottom teeth. Hattie is starting to seem fussy and her nose is running on top of her chewing on her hands.. so, she is either getting sick or getting teeth... I am hoping for the latter.

Last week and this week Wyatt has been in swimming lessons. Last week was not the best start. He was timid and wouldn't do what the instructors were asking him to do. Ben took him on Monday and came home aggravated. Tuesday was much worse and they called me on the way home b/c it was so bad. Wyatt was screaming and Ben was furious. Ben had told Wyatt that he could go swimming in the baby pool with Kendal after the lessons if he would jump in without assistance. Wyatt refused so Ben made him leave. Wyatt through himself on the ground and ended up throwing his shirt at Ben. As you know, Ben has no tolerance for that... So, we had a long talk once Wyatt was home. There was no TV as a consequence of his tantrum and he promised he would do better. Wednesday and Thursday he did much better. I brought the babies on Wednesday so we were all there to see him. On Thursday I took him while Janice and Missy watched the babies, as Thursday's are Dad's golf night.. This week has been good too. THANK GOD!!! I took some pictures and video... I will try to add them soon.

Last Friday I was off and took Wyatt to the Eldon Pool with Traci, Michael and Kendal. Wyatt kept getting out and laying down on his towel and falling asleep. Mom of the Year thought he was tired, never thought about him being sick, even after he told me his legs hurt b/c they weren't home... DUH. I finally figured it out after we stopped on the way home to see Ben and he said he felt like he was burning up. I took his temp and it was 102.2. We ended up taking him to urgent care on Saturday. His strep test was negative, but they treated him for that anyway b/c of his symptoms. He weighed 36 pds.

Saturday night Ben watched the kids while I went with a bunch of the Graham family and my friends to see Footloose. It was very good! We then went for a few drinks since we already had babysitters. It was a nice night.

Sunday was Father's Day. We went to breakfast with Ben's family at American Legion and then to Mema's and Bud's. Ben received a golf shirt from the kids! Then we all went home to take naps... everyone except Wyatt! Sunday night we went to Ed and Janice's for brats.

I am still in training for my new job. I am just about ready to get started and so nervous about that! It still feels so foreign to me... but, I think I will not really feel comfortable with it until I just start doing it. I am going back to St. Louis this Thursday and Friday.. Today was MISERABLE in the heat.. I was not meant to work in it.. I won't have to be out much once I am trained, just to inspect a vehicle... but now I am standing out in it.. turns me in to a whiner real quick.

My parents came over to dinner tonight and were supposed to help hang a new mirror I ordered.. BUT, IT WON'T WORK.. the old mirror is freaking nail glued to the wall????????? Who in the heck does this??? Apparently a lot of people these days.. but it is completely ridiculous.... I am so mad!!! Ben has been mouthing me all night for jumping the gun and ordering it.. I am mouthing him for not telling me before now that it could be a problem.

Hey girl, glad to hear Hudson was ok after the fall, who would have known, kids can find the craziest places to get themselves hurt. I am just impressed you all are taking a preschooler and two babies camping, way to go girl! We still have yet to take the kids on a camping trip, I just haven't had the energy for it yet, so I applaud you! Good luck with the new job. Love keeping up with your guys on your blog.
