hammer time

we went to the fair last night with the hammonds...we've decided to make this an annual outing. we went together for the first time last year, and this was obviously campbell's first time going...and in going to the fair, she got a little bonus concert



MC HAMMER! we left before campbell could hear '2 legit'...she really missed out

camboni's first road trip


look at our car! this is all the junk you have to take with you when you go on a road trip with a baby! geez louise...you may be thinking, 'you probably didn't need all of that stuff...' i assure you we did - my bag, aaron's bag, campbell's bag, stroller, pack-n-play, pump, bottles, bottle sterilizer...it was ridiculous!
we went to st. louis this past weekend for a little woolsey reunion at busch stadium. it was really fun getting to be with family and getting to spend time together. this was actually ryan & lindsay's first time meeting campbell!



we broke up the drive up into 2 days and spent the night in springfield and got to see our sweet friends from searcy, josh & kelli! we always love seeing them and secretly hope that they'll move here someday :) here is a picture of kelli and cam...can you say - double chin, party of 2!



we then headed to st. louis on thursday and did a little shopping and friday we headed downtown...




then we hit up busch stadium and enjoyed an evening game and had absolutely perfect weather for a baseball game! it was wonderful...until our baby started screaming and then spit up on aaron's new cardinals tee (oops)




since it was a night game, camboni was wiped out the next day, so she did a lot of this:




campbell also picked up a new habit while we were gone...who knows, maybe it was big city life that inspired it...



overall - great trip

and chocolate-peanut butter whoopie pies! ...or whoopie cushions as my mom would call them. they were a hit! here is the recipe, courtesy of better homes and garden:

* 1 12-oz. pkg. miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
* 2 Tbsp. milk
* 3/4 cup butter, softened
* 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

compare and contrast

just in case you were wondering where c-dub gets her chubby cheeks and chubbiness in general...




from me! ...the michelin man
check out the lack of wrist

i know i'm a little older in these pictures than she is now, but i have a feeling that this is what she'll look like when she's about 6 months old...i'll revisit these in 3 months

PTL

Praise The Lord

so, we admitted c-dub to children's hospital yesterday morning at 8 am...they said they wanted to monitor her since she was 5 weeks early. her mri was scheduled for this afternoon at 1pm, however she was able to get in a few hours early due to a no-show! yay for us, stinky for the other guy. we were told that the mri would take approximately 1.5 hours since she was getting a head mri and a full spine mri - 3 hours later they finally gave her back to us. ps - it was so hard to give her up (i'm pretty sure i was fighting back tears...) anywho, it was so strange seeing her come out of her anesthesia! she was groggy and when she would breathe it sounded raspy, but the nurse said it was saliva that had pooled in her mouth/throat and she just needed to make herself swallow. she hadn't eaten since 3:30 am, so she was pretty hungry, but due to her extreme sleepiness it was almost as if she couldn't make herself to swallow to eat SO she didn't...she just laid in her bed while she became a little more alert.

shortly after we had her safe and sound in her bed, the hospitalist came in and told us the results of her mri...

THE SAC OF FLUID IS GONE FROM HER SPINE AND HER SKULL LOOKS COMPLETELY NORMAL! SHE'S FINALLY A HAPPY, HEALTHY 3 MONTH OLD! WOO HOO!

thank you so much for all of your encouraging thoughts, words, and especially your prayers
