We got our ears pierced!

On May 25th, we got our ears pierced at the same place, Claire's in the Hampshire Mall, that Mommy and Cioci Jill had theirs done. Our cousins went first to show us that it was ok and then it was our turn. We cried a little, but then the lady gave us pops and we were fine! We love our earrings! Everyone thought we looked beautiful! Now we just have to let Mommy and Daddy clean them so they don't get infected...we're working on it!
Love, Kateri and Sydney

Memorial Day Parade

Went to the Memorial Day parade in Bellingham last week. The babies love the fire trucks and the bands. They clap for everyone. Of course we sat in front of the old town hall right where the have the ceremony so we had front row seats.

This past Sunday we went to the Hadley parade. Jordan and Mackenzie and Alexandra rode on the float with Amanda. They were so cute.

Monday we went to the parade in Franklin with Auntie Rebecca and Matthew and Ryan. The kids made a new friend who shared her cheerios with them and we saw Cioci Jill, Jordan and Mackenzie marching with the Daisies! Then we went back to the house for steak and corn-on-the-cob. Hooray for Mojitos!!!!

Luc's eye surgery

Luc had his eye surgery on May 20th at 8am. The surgery only took about an hour, but the dosed him with so much knockout medicine that he didn't wake up until 2PM!!!! We tried everything to wake him up so we could get home, and nothing worked. Finally, the nurse gave us a cold washcloth to rub on his face and he actually stirred! He then proceeded to fall back asleep! I stripped him down to his diaper, and like a bad Mommy, started rubbing his body down. He finally woke up and ate and drank. Poor Cioci Bonnie and Hadleigh were with the girls again all day, but they had fun!

Luc slept the rest of the day and then when John went up to give him Tylenol, he was really HOT! He had spiked a fever of 103 and we called the doctor and they said to take him to the ER just to be safe. I thought that the virus the girls have had for the past two weeks had finally caught up with him, but better safe than sorry. The ER was packed and John had to fight to get Luc in to see the Triage nurse and they told him to wait. TWO HOURS LATER, he was still not seen (9:30PM at this time) so I told John to come home. Luc's fever had broken (thanks to the Tylenol we gave him) and he was sleeping. We kept an eye on him through the night and he slept great, woke up and proceeded to crawl around like nothing had happened. He was eating, pooping and playing!

His eyes look good, a little red in the corners still, but he seems to be doing fine. We go back for a follow up in 6-8 weeks so we will see then if it worked!

Pierogi Fest 2008

We went to see Jimmy Stur and Eddie Forman play in West Springfield a couple weeks ago (sorry for the delay)! The babies had a great time playing with their cousins. Luc was especially taken with his cousin Kayla. He was playing with her and crawling around on the grass following her around! Of course, the girls loved the slide and couldn't get enough of it. They loved dancing to the music and playing with the other kids. Mommy even got a couple of dances in with Cioci Jill and cousin Suzanne! The only downfall was the fact that they used Mrs. T's frozen pierogis! What was up with that??????
