We did have to take Lincoln into the ER on Saturday. He was panting againg and in so much pain for about and hour and a half. It didn't let up all night while we were there either. he didn't have a fever or any signs of being sick, so the dr wanted some x-rays done of his stomach and lungs. When those were done the dr noticed something abnormal and so he ordered for a barium enema ( which basically means they gave him an enema with this white stuff and he was under the x-ray machine while the radiologist watched the go through his colon and instestines) they were check for a sign of blockage or that his Large intestine was swallowing the small intestine. That too came back fine, so we were relieved. The reason why the x-rays looked strange is because Lincoln from birth has a differnt colon path. Most of us the colon goes up over and kind of coils back down. Lincoln's goes up and over and then shoots straight down. They said it shouldn't ever cause problems but that we should know that is the casr with him. So we left the ER with the diagnosis of a stomach virus. I guess some flu's can slow down the intestine and so while Lincoln is producing gas the intestine is having a hard time squeezing it out so it is building up in the poor little guy and that is whats causing all of thae pain. We got a perscription for some drops that calm the stomach and help with the contracting. So far today they have seemed to work. He is exhausted though, yesterday was rough on him and he didn't sleep too well last night either. I need to follow up with his pediatrition on Monday and I will keep you all posted.

I feel like sometimes I am talking so much about Jack and all of the funny things he does and says that Lincoln doesn't get as much attention. First off I had to post the before and after pictures of Lincoln's face, it has come so far thanks to a good dermatoligist, it makes me so happy, now people can see actually how cute he is besides just looking at the rash on his face. Tonight we almost had to take the poor little guy to the emergency room. we thought he may have swallowed something. After his nap today he all of a sudden he started screaming and he wouldn't stop. Then he got all short of breath and started sweating. He just wanted to be on all fours laying on Justin's legs. I called the nurse at the doctors office and she heard his breathing and told us to take him to the emergency room. Well since we don't have any insurance we weren't really thrilled with this outcome, but of course he start getting in the car. well Lincoln ended up throwing up and by the time we were half way there he was totally fine. so we turned around. About and hour later he started it again this time acting like he neede to go the the bathroom. I put him in the bathtub and he finally went to the bathroom in there, then I swintched baths and he did it again in the next bath, this happened a couple of times. I think after that he felt much better, he is sleeping now so I hope he feels better. I just hate him being sick, i get so worried.

I love fall! We went to the park the other day and it was so much fun, Lincoln loved it, asn is big enough now to go down the slides and climb up himself. I had one of those moments today that I just thought about how much I love my kids, its so fun being a mom.

Okay so anyone who knows me knows that I love anything cheesy. So of course Highschool Musical is right up my alley. I think I am rubbing off on my kids. This is what I heard while I was giving them a bath, notice Lincoln is singing along too. We has watched Highschool Musical 2 earlier today. Sorry about the fact that they are in the bath, but I couldn't pass this up. I think I kept the video tasteful. Oh and by the way, do you like Jack's face, he looks like a villian in a move with a scar right across his eye. He got hit by a swing...or I guess I should say a swinging kid. Good thing I got their pictures done last week.

So today Lincoln started saying the word baby. We were all excited he was saying a new word so here was then my conversation with Jack:
Me- " Jack do you want mommy to have another baby?"
Me-" Don't you want a brother? Or a sister?
Me- " But I want to have another baby"
Jack- " Mommy, if you go poo poo in the potty you can have a baby okay"
We were dying laughing and then a bit later I repeated back to him what he said and then he replied, "that's right mommy"

We went bowling today. Jack absolutely loved it. We had the bumpers up and his ball would go so slow, but he would wait and watch and get so excited when he knocked the pins down. We went with our friends the Roes and Jack and Connor had their own lane. It was so cute. When we were leaving Jack said, "That was awesome!"

Okay so my girlfriend is starting a new business doing the airbrushed spray tans. I just got my first one tonight and I LOVE it! It's amazing how much better you feel, (or I guess I feel better) when I am tan. I just wish I could afford to do it once a week. Anyways I was just excited about it. She is going to start doing parties and stuff, how fun is that.
