Tulips 2010

After a very lazy morning yesterday, (Henry & I slept while Shane and Emma ran errands), we decided to head up to the Tulip Festival, one of our favorite events of the year. It was before it had officially started, so there weren't many crowds, and the weather was nice. Lots of mud, but it was still fun. Henry was a great trooper. :)

Warning: TMI about Babies and Body Functions

You've been warned, but I do have a question...

Projectile Pooping? What the what? Has anyone else had a baby that does this? Never happened even once with Emma, but Henry is a pro at it. At least once a day. It happens mostly to Shane, but tonight, he got me good. Gross, disgusting and quite hilarious honestly.

Yuck is all I can say.


Our Elder's Quorum had their 1st annual "ManOlympics" on Saturday, and Shane enjoyed the battle. Some of the events:

Hatchet throwing into a woodpile
Football through Tire throwing
Jumping Contest (Jumping from a trampoline and grabbing hold of a cherry picker off a boom-truck)
Pushing a wheelbarrow up a hill
Paintball Duels
& Hot Wing eating contest

Here are some pictures, and a video of the fun. Luckily no one got hurt, as one would suppose. I'm glad Shane had such good time, maybe next year we'll all go watch. :)

And a little video...all taken by Mark!

Check Ups

Today, we went to Dr. Aeschilman's office for Henry to have his 2 week check-up, and for Emma's 4 year check-up (a little late).

Emma is 43 lbs, and 43 3/4 inches tall. The doctor said she is doing great and ahead of schedule on a lot of things.

Henry is 9 lbs 2 oz (finally back up past his birth weight) and still 21 inches tall. He is doing great and was a happy baby. He didn't have to get any shots today, so that helped the happiness...

Henry Bryant Reckling

Born March 3, 2010 at 5:18 am. 9 lbs 1 oz. 21 inches long. He's been a great baby so far. He eats great, and I just can't wait to get him on a regular sleep schedule. Here are some of my favorite pictures so far. :) I love, love, love him!

Emma holding baby brother for the 1st time. She was so excited to see him, but once she was holding, only wanted to have him for a few seconds. She's already given him a million kisses on the forehead, and gets me all the diapers I need. She's been a great big sister so far. :)

Emma & Henry (2 days old) our first night at home.

Henry 3 days old. He makes alot of faces during his "milk-coma" phase. Right after I feed him, he drifts off into funny face land. He smiles all the time when he's inbetween worlds. Of course they're not social smiles, but still he's smiling. I like to think he's remembering good things from before he came to our family...

My ladies man, Mr. Henry Winky! :)

It's a good thing he's so cute, or else I wouldn't be able to handle the lack of sleep. He's fun to see, even in the middle of the night. Hopefully he gets a little better every day.
