yesterday we went up to big cottonwood canyon for a family reunion! it was for my grandma's family on my dad's side. i never got to meet my grandma, since she passed away when my dad was 5, but it's nice to be able to meet some of the people who knew her best. it was beautiful up there! we didn't spend the night and camp with everyone though. it's a little hard with the babies and my family isn't exactly known for camping, but we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows and ate lots of food. the babies did pretty good but were pretty tired by the end of the night. we got to ride up in my parents brand new toyota avalon. it is so nice! sean has been sick, so he was a trooper for coming up with us. i love my family! also, can i just say how much easier it is to take ben out and about now that he is feeling better and isn't throwing up all the time? it has been so nice. sean and i feel so much relief and are really starting to enjoy this much more. it's still not easy, but the smaller amounts of puke and the happier baby really do make a difference.

today we have just been taking it easy since sean is not feeling well. ben has decided that his new wake up time for the day is 5 am. i havent' been loving it.. but he has been waking up less in the middle of the night, so it's hard to complain too much. he seems to be pretty temperamental about his body temperature. a few weeks ago we figured out he was waking up all the time because he was too hot and feverish. we kept dressing him lightly and added a ceiling fan to his room and he did well but then started waking up all the time again. we put him back in regular pajamas and a warmer blanket and he seems to be sleeping better. oh babies. i just wish they could talk and tell us what they need! he took a 3 hour nap today that i ended up waking him up from. he is a pretty good napper so i can't complain. i just wish he slept in a little! i am so not a morning person. anyway, we have a roast cooking in the crockpot and are just taking it easy for the rest of the day. we both have a busy week ahead of us. hope everyone has a great sunday!
