Bribery Works

So as you know we haven't been sleeping well because of these darn teeth. Saturday was heck and took us all Sunday to recover. Well last night Andrew told Jackson that if he slept all night he would buy him a Tigger toy. Well lets just say I didn't wake up until 7 this morning and the first words out of my mouth were "Thank you Jesus." So I figure its either 1. Jackson is feeling better 2. His teeth aren't bothering him anymore 3. He was exhausted from only having a 30 min afternoon nap or 4. He understood how to manipulate Andrew into buying him a toy :) So lets just say tonight when we went to Walmart to get Halloween candy Jackson got to pick out a Tigger. He loves it so much!

Today Andrew worked from home because I had to go back to the doctor for an ultrasound. I have had pains and a bulge in my side from where I had my surgery last year. So thankfully the ultrasound didn't show anything out of the normal. The doctor called radiology and they suggested a CT scan if the problem doesn't get better. So what Dr. Turner is thinking is that maybe I didn't get time to fully heal from when I had surgery, then went back to work and then went through child birth. So things in your body stretch and move around and things are trying to find their right place and trying to heal. I am also not use to carrying around 20 lbs of Jackson with me where ever I go. HE is my new 20lb appendage. So I have to start doing more abdominal exercises to firm up and make those muscles stronger and see if that helps. If it doesn't get better or gets worse then we will do a CT scan in January. Fingers crossed that it will get better!

In other news I have been learning to use my embroidery machine and Andrew took this picture of my first finished thing. I embroidered Jackson's name on his blankie:)

Tomorrow we are going to carve our pumpkins so those pictures should be cute! Enjoy the pictures of Jackson, Daddy and Tigger:)
