NYC in a Nutshell…

This past weekend Marcus and I headed out of Friday morning for a weekend of fun, friends and baseball.  Thanks Nanny and Papa and aunt Jenny for taking care of our lil ones while we were gone :)

It was such a fast and furious weekend, but we managed to have a blast!!  First, we arrived and went to see our friend, John, to say good luck!  Then we were off to Nike Town to get a few essentials for the cold rainy weather forecasted.  Then off to the game…

We rode the subway to the game…it was a quick trip :)  Yankee stadium was AWESOME!  The fans on the other hand…AWFUL!  They just could not stop talking…PROFANITY to us.  Thank goodness we had officers and security around us since we sat with the players’ families.

John pitched good, but unfortunately they lost both games.  On Saturday we went shopping, watched college football and went to Game 2.  Game 2 was much more exciting…it lasted 13 innings and sadly our team lost again Darn that A. Rod for hitting a tying homer!!!  We made it back to the hotel LATE and got just enough sleep to wake up and catch our flight early on Sunday.  We had a great time, but we were ready to pick up our babies!  Hopefully they will win the next several games….if they do….. OFF TO THE WORLD SERIES :)

1st Tooth

For a while now I have been thinking Madelyn is teething.  She is always chewing on her fingers or anything she can get a hold of.  So a few days ago I saw her gums white and swollen and it looked like a tooth might be poking through.  I felt for myself and sure enough….1 little tooth poking through on the bottom left.  Her right one isn’t far behind and about to come through too!  The only signs she has had were the constantly chewing and swollen gums and runny poo.  She is eating mainly the food we eat…she frowns when I pull out the baby food.  She is WALKING everywhere and loves to follow her big bro around.  My baby girl is growing up too fast!


In other news…

The past few weeks have been a HORRIBLE start to October.  Mason was sick with a virus and then Marcus had an upper respiratory infection then Madelyn poor girl had a 103 fever with an UTI infection.  After many doc visits…tons of pokes and prods we are all well and feeling great!  It was a tough two weeks with everyone sick around the house :( 

This weekend Marcus and I are heading to NYC to cheer on the Halos!  Our friend John Lackey pitches against the Yankees in Game 1 of the 2nd round of the playoffs.  I am excited to go to the new Yankee stadium.  I also HEART NYC!  It will be a whirlwind of a weekend but I am sooo excited!  GO ANGELS!!!
