|Dean and the younger boys recently took out the r/c airplane.|
|It was loads of fun until it got caught in the batting cage. Note the cherry blossoms in the background.|
|I quite enjoyed watching Dean try to get it down. Between the big water gun and the little football, he finally got it.|
I went to a "baby shower" on base Saturday, for any pregnant ladies. There were lots of informative booths, such as with the embassy to know how to get Baby an American birth certificate and passport, and I signed us up for an infant CPR class through the Red Cross. I came home with a big box of diapers, a "deluxe first aid kit", and other baby items.
Some wonderful ladies here threw a joint shower for me and another expectant mom at my favorite Thai restaurant in Itaewon recently. I only asked for girlie accessories like headbands and such. They ladies were all too generous and we are excited to use all the fun girlie things when Cambria decides to make her appearance. We have settled on her first name, and may even have a middle name lined up.
Little Tristan came down with the croup (again) on Friday, so I took him to the ER on base where they gave him steroids and a breathing treatment. I was hesitant to take him in because he has a couple of ugly bruises on his chest, and there could always be an idiot who can't comprehend hemophilia who might scream abuse. The doctor didn't say anything when he examined his chest.
|Tristan is in the highest point of this, looking out the window. Invariably other moms will ask if "he's OK way up there?" when my boys are doing something like that. We have yet to have a broken bone or any such thing.|
Dean stayed home from church with him on Sunday, as I had a couple of duties in Primary. He started to take him outside for a walk while the rest of us were gone, but Tristan took a tumble down the stairs exiting the building and cut his lip open, so Dean took him to the ER again. They put one stitch in his lip, but it was gone (bitten out?) within several hours. It's not bleeding much, thankfully. Of course the doctor (who has seen him before for such injuries) refused to give the factor that Dean took with him.
I'm due in 18 days! My mom will be coming in 17 days!
A hard day's pillaging makes for a great nap.
