2 Sparklers & a little Firecracker

We had a very relaxing 4th of July and I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than eat and spend time with my family! Justin’s parents joined our family {including my parents} for a low country boil {thanks, DaddyBoy– it was delightful} to celebrate Independence Day. I’m still not feeling great so it was nice to be in company of people who don’t mind if you bail out to go get in bed.

We had an early morning appointment for John Martin at the pediatrician for a weight check. He was 7 lbs even when we were discharged and is now up to 7 lbs 4 oz… the pediatrician told us all they were concerned about was the baby “holding” the weight from discharge and anything over that is an added bonus… so we were proud of our 4 bonus ounces! He just had an explosion next to me so I’m sure we’re back down to 7 lbs even now! 🙂 He wore Justin’s day gown when he was a babe to the doctor so we of course had to snap a couple pictures…

Justin won’t like that picture {it appears as though he might still be sleeping and we both were wishing we were still in bed!} oh well! We returned home to a wonderful breakfast {thanks, DaddyBoy}. The girls, Justin, and Mom and DaddyBoy got some great pool time in this afternoon! I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed them self! It was a tad too hot for me out there… even under an umbrella but I enjoyed my time observing… that is, until Paige headbutted me in the abdomen when I told her she couldn’t see my “boo boo”… I know, “not Paiger!?”

Well time to change a poopy explosion! Good thing they don’t stink yet!

What fun to come home and have all your family there-especially for the 4th-I know it was delicious! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your new pictures. Can’t wait to meet him! I’m hoping sooner than later!! Love yall!

    You know it is illegal in most states to be that skinny after having a baby! Good grief…you are making the rest of us feel horrible…plus where is your post pregnancy break out. After having Joel I looked like a teenager again!

    Hope you guys are enjoying the joys of boys!!

    Love from VA,

    It’s just an illusion… my boobs are just so ginormous that my stomach actually looks flat. It’s not… it’s just that “the girls” are very enlarged and swollen. If I had a needle I could pop them and we could fill the entire square footage of our house with milk! 🙂
