Brandon went to Atlantic Farms on a field trip this afternoon with Dow Avenue. Stu went with his class and said that Brandon had a great time and a lot of fun. The kids went on a hayride to the pumpkin patch and each got to pick a pumpkin. They also went to see the animals and feed them carrots.
On Sunday, Brandon went to Jen's birthday party. It was at a hip hop place. Brandon was so excited to go but when we got there he wouldn't get off of my lap to go dance with the kids. Half of the kids there did the same thing so it wasn't just him. He did get up from my lap and joined in when they started playing duck duck goose. After the dancing the kids had pizza and cake which was a big hit with Brandon.
Stu, Brandon, Wesley, Stu's parents, and I went apple picking and pumpkin picking yesterday. Brandon was very into picking apples this year. He also enjoyed eating them. Wesley liked putting the apples into the bag but he couldn't pull them off of the tree by himself.
On Sunday, Brandon and Wesley went to Brandon Wilson's birthday party. Brandon was a preemie also and I met his mom when Brandon was 1 at the NICU walk. At the same time I also met 4 other moms of preemies. THe 6 of us started getting together and have remained friends since. All of the kids that were at the party are the preemies. Both boys had so much fun. It was a Mickey Mouse themed party. There was Mickey Mouse shaped pizza, Mickey Mouse cupcakes and oreo pops, Mickey Mouse pumpkin decorating, a Mickey Mouse pinata, and a Mickey Mouse favor table.
On Saturday we went to an Octoberfest at Shrewsbury Fire Department. Both boys had fun listening to the band that was playing and playing with the beanbag toss. Brandon had his hand painted instead of his face and was so excited about the bee that was painted on it.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
