Lets back up to last Wednesday night. I took all three boys to Target to get a present for a birthday party that Keagan was invited to. We hadn't been in the store for more than 3 minutes when I stopped to look at something. All of a sudden I hear Deker crying and Keagan saying "Sorry Deker". I looked at Deker and saw that his lip was bleeding quite a bit. With the help of a Target worker, we got tissues & ice. I got the bleeding stopped, took him to the bathroom to clean him and me up and then gave him the ice to eat. It looked like he fell and his teeth made 2 to 3 different cuts in his bottom lip.
All was fine until Saturday night at the wedding. He was playing with some chairs, fell and it reopened the cut lip. Thank goodness Andrew was there this time and I let him take care of it.
All was fine, once again, until this morning (Thursday). The day was going according to plan and the boys were playing upstairs and Bauer was asleep, when I heard a bang and Deker start crying. I started up to stairs to see what as going on and found Deker with his chin cut open, once again. I quickly grabbed a washcloth to stop as much blood as possible, brought him downstairs. I don't really trust my instincts on stuff like this, so I called our good friends, the Kolilis' house (Dan is a Nurse) to get their opinion. Dan came over and assessed the wound. He then used his "Medical expertise" and supplies and used surgical glue and sterry strips and got him all bandaged up.
Why is this happening when Andrew is gone? Don't my kids know that they have to wait until Andrew is home to do stuff like this?

That evening, Vera got her computer out so the boys decided they needed to get the computers out as well.
On Friday, I needed to go the store to get some bread, on the way to the store, we drove past the new Walgreens which was having their grand opening. They were giving away free hot dogs so we decided to stop for some lunch. There was a race car which Keagan loved. He did not want to get out of it.
When we went to get the hot dogs, they were out at the moment and they were waiting for more, so they gave each of us an ice cream sandwich while we waited.
That afternoon, my mom, my dad and my grandpa Smith arrived. My Dad was showing Keagan & Deker some pictures of their new camping trailer.
That night, my sister, Jeanette got here with her husband Jeff and their twin girls Emmalyn and Brooklyn.
My boys especially love it when we have people visiting and one of those reasons is that they have lots more people to read books to them. As I was going through the pictures, I realized just how much my boys like to read. Here are just a few of the times they had people reading books to them.
Keagan and Deker with their Grandpa Smith (notice the two other books sitting on there that they had already read).
Aunt Vera reading a book to Keagan and Deker while holding Bauer.
This is Deker with his Great Grandpa Smith. This is one of my favorites because Deker doesn't warm up to people very quickly, but as soon as he realized that his Great Grandpa would read a book to him, he climbed right up.
Here is Keagan with his Grandma Smith.
There are more posts below with the rest of the weekends festivities.
At 2-years-old. Deker likes anything to do with Tractors, trucks & trains. He Loves playing with is older brother Keagan and he follows and tried to do anything Keagan does. Deker is a great big brother to Bauer and always likes to know where he is.
Bauer spent most of his time either sleeping in his stroller or in Aunt Vera's arms.
We were about two holes away from the end of the miniature golf course when Deker decided he needed to sit down, but he made sure to keep a hold of his ball and golf club.
After we finished miniature golfing, we ate lunch and then Vera decided she wanted to take Keagan on the Go-carts. So, we all went except my Mom who stayed out with Deker (he is not tall enough), Bauer and the twins. I offered to stay out with the kids, but my mom said that with her bad knee she wasn't sure if she could get into and out of the little carts.
