More Random Pics and Update

Although our lives are really pretty boring overall, we do have moments of excitement and fun. Since most people just like seeing the random pics of our day to day. Here you go!

Here is our girly girl with her nice new purple nails. Abigail loves this type of thing.

Here are the B-boys with some other famous Iowans at the Father and Sons campout. We had a great time, and what boy doesn't like exploring water, bugs, and all that good stuff in the woods.

We weren't able to make any Smores at the campout, so we decided to try it out on the grill after we cooked up some Sunday dinner. Another 'grilling' alternative, especially if you like melted chocolate!

I think I have a napping shot of all the kids at one time or another. Sherrie caught one of me and Campbell and Abigail. Who doesn't love these moments!

Karate Kid Campbell. Honestly, since he was born this guy is always moving his hands and arms. These pictures show it.

Dad being creative - Happy Mother's Day

After we got 2 week pictures for Campbell, Dad picked up mom's mothers day present, new frames for our living room and our bedroom. This is just a little bit of dad 'trying' to be creative.

Campbell update

Mr. Campbell got to go to the doctor's office for his two week checkup. Here are the stats
6 lb. 10 oz. -- 10th percentile
20 inches long -- 50th percentile
34.5 cm head circumference -- 20th percentile
He is gaining weight and getting on a somewhat consistent schedule with feeding and sleeping. Somehow he is able to nap through the chaos of Abigail and Kell and their love-hate relationship. Frankly I don't know how mom deals with it, but we are all managing. One good thing is that all the kids are totally worn out at the end of the day that they sleep through any of Campbell's midnight sessions.

Here are some pics we are finally getting on the blog, few of which actually relate to Campbell, but are fun nonetheless!

Here is a nice shot of Kell, Campbell and Abigail. They love to hold and love Campbell. Kell will even hold him crying or not. It doesn't even phase him, and he lives for his turn. Abigail is about the same, however, if Campbell is crying, then it is mom or dad's turn.

This was the funniest thing I have seen in a while. After a bath, Abigail was wailing from the bathroom. She had a brush of Sherrie's and had managed to to wind her hair so tightly in it that she could hardly move the brush. And Sherrie was busy so dad had to try to untangle the mess. Abigail's face is priceless!

Here is a nice shot of the kids and Mom to see who had the biggest belly (no comments that dad isn't in the shot). Kell is asking how he gets his tummy to stick out farther. THis was taken about a week before Campbell was born.

Here is our 8 year old soccer star (we don't have any good pics of Kell yet, maybe he is too fast!)
