You will never guess what I did. That thing on Ry's face was slowly getting better and I put her in the tub last Thurs. only to have the yucky scab almost fall off. I helped it a little and it began to ooze. So I laid her down on the bed and squeezed a little until this huge core popped out. Oh it was so gross. The thing was the size of ten big zits...EWWWW. I don't like to pick other peoples zits (gagging). I do like to pick sunburns. It bled and Ry screamed.... Needless to say it is looking sooooo much better. I forgot to tell you that Alex is up to 12lbs and 4 Oz's now. He is doing so good right now. He has the yummiest rolls under his chin. And you can actually see the dimples in his elbows and hands now. On Saturday I cut off his mullet. The crazy hair on the back of his head that look more like a go-t (sp?) on the back of his head than anything else. We think he is going to have curly hair. It looks curly when he gets out of the tub and I gel it a little on Sunday to get it to spike.... So cute.

I have to tell you a funny story about Ry.

The other day it was getting late and Ryleigh was very tired. I was feeding Alex and she came into his room. I told her to go get back in bed. She didn't want any of that and started ranting and whaling and carrying on. Well that was all she could take and raised her hand, just then dad came in noticed she was about to hit me and said..."Don't you dare hit mom!!!!" knowing full well she had been caught she smartly replied "High-Five mom!" she saved her back end, WHEW.......

Well that's it for today. Kind of a random collection of things.... Brynn

I love the story about Ryleigh's "high-five"! Those sweet girls! We sure like checking up on you guys. I can't believe Alex is so big. That's great. We see our cardiologist tomorrow and I think he will let us know when our next echo is. Hopefully it's close to a weekend and we could drop by and say hello to you all. Will you do me a favor and email me the info about the picnic in September. We haven't heard about it yet. Thanks so much. Have a great week. Love, the Pearsons.
