Oh boy

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for all of your sweet comments from yesterday's post. It means the world to me that so many of you take the time to comment!

Happy birthday to my mother-in-law! We won't be able to see her this year because she moved, but I sent her a collage with pictures of my husband and the kids!

Now the yucky stuff. Poor Ryleigh's spit up on my backdrop yesterday has turned into full blown vomitting. She has not kept a bottle down for the past 24 hours and I am trying to keep her hydrated and out of the hospital. Leighton has also been sick and I swear I cannot even see the end in sight yet! I guess when it rains it pours! The pictures from today are right after Ryleigh's third time vomitting today. I stripped her down and wrapped her in a towel so I could clean up the mess. When I was done I went to get her to give her a bath and she looked so cute I couldn't help but get the camera. She looks so happy, you can't even tell the poor girl is miserable!

Another thing real quicly! I have been asked time and time again about my kids' names so I figured it's about time I explain them. First of all, Mady is short for Madyson. It was the third choice for me and my husband so that's what we ended up with. Her middle name is Vegas Lynne!! Vegas is from Las Vegas, and I won't go into any more detail in case my grandma reads this! Lynne is after her grandma, my husbands mom. Leighton was by accident. I was watching Trauma Life in the ER when I was pregnant with him when I heard it. I wanted something different since there are so many Madisons in the world! It never even occurred to me to spell it any differently (Layton, etc). Quite a while after we had it picked I realized that we loved to go see a local band GB Leighton, but that is not where his name came from. His middle name is Wagner. It is my maiden name (obviously!), but we chose it after my dad and two brothers who have passed away. I couldn't only honor one or two of them and my husband decided Wagner would be a great way to honor all of them! Gotta' love that man! Ryleigh was a tough one. We could not agree on a name for the life of us! Mady had wanted to name her Gracelynn, and we almost did. I had really wanted Dawsyn or Savanna, my husband really wanted Shelby or Ashleigh. Finally we decided on Ryleigh. It is spelt that way because Leigh is my husband's middle name (after his grandma) and my grandma's middle name! A good way to honor three people at once if you ask me! Her middle name is Renae, after me. We were going to do Kay after my mom, but she begged me not to! Anyways, if you made it through all of that bless you! Hopefully that answered people's questions about their names!

On with the pictures of my sick baby girl:
