Scarlet Fever

It has been a while since I have posted anything new so lets just go with the latest thing, Scarlet Fever. So Friday night Hudson started to get a small rash all over his body. Later that evening the rash got bigger and brighter. We thought it was a viral rash but as the rash got worse we took him into the doc ad they said he had scarlet fever. Back in the day children used to die from this. So naturally I freaked so what do I do? Get on the internet. I find out all it is is group A strep. It looks so much worse than it is. Antibiotics have started to clear it up in only 3 days. With my fingers crossed nobody else will get it. And so far it has worked. So here are some pictures of the poor little man while the rash was at its worse.

Nash At His Blessing And 2 Months Old

It's crazy how fast these last 2 months have gone. Nash is now 2 months old and 12 lbs. He is the biggest baby at 2 month I have ever had. It seems like the others finally hit 12 lbs at like 5 or 6 months. Little runts. Hopefully he will be a big boy. Anyways here are just a few pictures of him at his blessing with great grandma brown and grandma and grandpa brown. I am so lame at taking pictures and I wish I had some with my parents and family in them too. I will be better from now on. If you don't do it now you will be sad later!

Nash In His Bilibed

When Nash was born him red blood cells were out of control. A normal newborns hemoglobin in supposed to be at around a 25 to 30. Nashs was at a 60. So part of the reason we had to stay in the hospital was his body not being able to break down the red blood cells effectively. He had to be on a bilibed for 8 days after he got home. Then I had to take him into the IHC clinic for 8 days in a row to get his blood tested. With 4 kids and just me I wanted to die! But it all worked out and he never had to go back up to the hospital. But it was sad because he had to be in the bed as long as possible and only taken out to feed the put right back in. Sad for the first week home to not get held at all unless I was feeding him. But he was good. I never knew how yellow he was until I looked at these pictures of him. So funny.

Our New Baby Boy, Nash Jenson Brown

Here are just a few pictures my awesome sister in law took of our latest addition to our family, Nash Jenson Brown. He was born June 4Th 2010, 3 weeks early and a whopping 6 lbs. If he wouldn't have been born 3 weeks early he would have been huge! With every kid the birth weight has gone up 1 pound. This guy would have been at least an 8 pound baby. No thanks to that! I saw my sister have a 9 pound baby and it was amazing but all I have to say to that is, me neither!
The bad thing about having him come so early was that his lungs were underdeveloped and had to spend 1 week in the NICU. It was horrible! But Trent and my family was awesome. They took care of my kids the whole time so I could stay at the hospital with the baby. I have such an awesome family and I love them all so much. Anyways Nash has been a blessing to our family and I guess for now we will keep him.

Oh and the top picture is missing Hudson because he was throwing a fit and didn't want to sit down to be in the picture. What a little stinker. But my sister in law is such an amazing photographer and I just think the world of her. Thanks so much Alicia for always being so willing to help others out I love you!

Our First Broken Bone

We finally had our first broken bone. It is a surprise to me too. Trent thinks I play way too rough with the kids and all I ever say to him is" They like it. That is the way I grew up and I never broke anything." But about a week ago he way playing on the couch and threw himself backwards like he often does and for some reason stuck his arm behind him. It was a freak thing, but he broke his elbow.

The worst part was it was on a Saturday and the insta-care had just closed so we had to go to the emergency room. He had to be in a splint until Tuesday. The doctor said that the brake was okay but if he tripped and fell on it that he would for sure have to have surgery. So for 3 day I was right next to him making sure he stayed on his feet. What a chore that was. He is a busy guy.

Needless to say he got his cast and he will have it on for three weeks and then back to normal.
Here are just a few pictures of him with the splint and then the cast.

New Start

K so it has been forever since I have blogged but once you get so far behind you are pretty much screwed. So I decided to just start from now. Christmas was, I am sure the same as every ones. We opened presents and hung out with family. Too many toys with nowhere to put them. New years eve was good but Trent was soo sick he stayed in out room for three days. I spend the night with neighbors and partied without him. Sucky. But I did check on him and get him sprite every hour. Boys are such babies. And the latest news was Harlee had lice last week. It was the most horrible thing that has ever happened to me. It wasn't even me but I almost died. First of all I was sooooo embarrassed about the whole thing. Second it made me feel like my house was infested with them and for those of you who know me and my OCD I lost it. Third when I lived in Egypt as a kid I loved to hold the stray puppies and I got flees. It was traumatic. I had to sit in the bathroom all alone for 3 hours covered in special shampoo. Plus they bite. My mom always tells me the story and laughs because she said I was crying and yelling for her to just let me die. Girls are such drama. Harlee was so good about everything. She sat on the kitchen table for 5 hours twice while me and my sister Em went through her hair and picked out all the bugs. Never said a word. She rocked! If it wouldn't have been for Em I would have had a nervous break down for sure. But I am glad it is all over and we are back to normal other than the vacuuming ever morning and night, laundry, and checking hair for the next two weeks just to make sure.
Anyways here are just a few pics of Christmas at my house with awesome fam. I will be much better at taking pictures and blogging. It is nice to be back.

great grandma Spencer. They love going to grandparents houses! There is always
good food and lots of love!!! If the saying is true you grow up to look just like your mom
I am in luck. My mom is beautiful inside and out.
Trick or treating at my grandmas retirement home! They give out the best candy!
They were all worried about swine flue so we had to were masks! Cute little grannies!
Hudson hated me having a mask on. Every time I put it on he freaked out! Little baby!
Hudson was Dracula! He loved getting dressed and showing off! He is his daddies son!
What in the heck did Trent and I do to get girls that love cheer leading and princesses. You wouldn't think I like it but I do. I just remembered all the girls who were cheerleaders in jr high and high school had no problems getting dates! So bring it on.
