Big Baby and Racing

Sam and Elijah went with our friends to the Miller Race-way today. They saw fast motorcycles, racecars, they got to ride bikes and Sam even drove a small race bike.
Isaac doesn't look like a newborn anymore! I can not believe he is going to be four weeks on tuesday.
Elijah is walking! It is so sad to watch, he has a limp but he is getting around just fine now.

More changes for Elijah!! He got a walking cast on, but he still hasn't walked on it. I think it is strange to be told not to walk for a week and then told to walk all of a sudden. He is still grumpy but he is an Atencio-Sloan and he can't get all his energy out. His new thing is Kids Meals. He loves them, to me it just means we have been eating out way too much the last few weeks. Isaac is getting big already. He loves to eat and sleep. But mostly he loves to eat ALOT!! Isaac doesn't have the newborn gray eye color, he was born with black-brown eyes. It will be interesting to see if they stay that way or not. Sam and Elijah have such dark brown eyes!
Sam started the semester this week. It doesn't seem like it will be too bad, he only has class one day a week and the rest of his classes are online. He did very well last semester, of course. The final he took the day I had Isaac he got a B on! He does so good under pressure and he barely had time to study for it with me being in labor all weekend.
I am feeling pretty good. My emotional roller coaster is slowing down and I am healing very well!! I can not wait until I can carry Elijah. He breaks my heart when he wants me to carry him and I can't. How do you explain that to a two year old.

What do you think?

Isaac three days old.

Elijah one day old.

Do they look alike?

A Day at The Park part 2 (WTF)

I know that day at the park looked nice but right at the end Elijah fell off a slow moving, low to the ground swing. He was really upset and crying a lot but he fell asleep not too long after so we thought he was finally having an emotional outburst from his life changing so much. We were wrong. He was crying because he broke his leg. He has a fracture called a toddler fracture (yes it is called that). I feel so badly for him! He can not walk on it for at least a week! He will be in a cast for six to eight weeks. I can not carry him because of the c-section so Sam is on Daddy duty for the next while. The good news is Elijah is still in love with Isaac and Isaac is doing well. I am glad for Sam having FMLA and I am glad we both have such supportive families.

We just rolled him to the intermediate nursery from NBICU. Later this afternoon he should be able to chill in mom's room.

Day Three

It is my third day of contractions and I am getting tired and emotional. The contractions are worse then yesterday but no worse than Saturday. I am suppose to call my doctor in the morning and if I am still having contractions then we will decide what the next step is. I envy all you woman who have nice short labors and I kind of dislike you all right now too!!!

I am still in early labor!! I am hanging out having contractions but I am sure I haven't advanced very far. We will see what happens tonight. I have a doctor's appt tomorrow so I will know more in the morning.

Quick Update

We are home. The baby is still in the belly. We are all very tired. More to follow.
