We've been sick.....

Weird sick! Last weekend Brian woke up with his hands swollen, and his joints achy. It lasted for just about 2 days and then cleared up. Then Rory started to have a nasty looking rash show up on his arms. Then it spread to his face, chest and legs. No fever though. So we took him to the doctor and they thought it might be hives. Then a few hours later the doctor called and said it might be fifths disease aka "slapped cheek disease". So if you read up on it you will see that in children it shows up as a rash and in adults its joint pain and swelling. Kind of crazy. Then Rory got a nice cough to top off everything. Oh and I got the lovely stomach virus yesterday. Whoo hoo. Did we miss any sickness? Oh wait Greyson just woke up kind of Croupe. Lots of fun!

Its Wabbit Season


They were cute when "they" were just one. The other day I looked out in the backyard and "they" turned into 3. Three pesky little rabbits who happened to leave surprises all over my yard. I have 3 kids to look after, I don't need to clean up after some stinkin rabbits. Oh and did I mention that it might be mating season. Let me just say this, I don't need to have some nature show with frisky rabbits going on in my back yard for all to see including my sweet, innocent little boys.
Anyways, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. Everytime we saw a rabbit or rabbits out there we tried to chase it like crazy people. Waving our hands, clapping at them until the stinkers somehow squeshed their body underneath a crack in our fence that was no bigger than an inch or two. How do they do that? You can only imagine what our neighbors think. I think we plugged up most of the holes that they somehow came through. So here is a mugshot of one of the culprits.

If anyone has any ideas on how to rid our yard of these deceivingly cute little critters please let me know. :)

7 months


Sweet Greyson is growing up WAY TOO FAST!!! I'm trying to savor every moment. But because my memory is going and most likely will never return I have to jot down a few things that I love about Grey.

*He has the best cheeks out there. We're sure they weigh 5 lbs each :)
*He can roll from his tummy to his back. But considering he doesn't like his tummy he refuses to roll the other way (even though we know he can) :)
*His favorite veggie is Green Beans, even though it smells the worst.
*His smile lights up the room.
*He is so good to his parents because you sleep through the night.
*We're pretty sure those gorgeous baby blues are here to stay.
*His laugh reminds us of baby Jack Jack's from the Incredibles.
*He knows his mom and misses her when she is gone!
*He is a sweet, content and loving baby.

Rory is reading. I think that it is the most amazing thing when that switch turns on and the confidence to try starts to push through. I've been working with him for a while, even before kindergarten and not too much success. But I must admit I'm not the best teacher by any means. But now his teacher has informed us that he is above average in reading.

Seriously the milestones he makes, maybe because he is my first, are just so amazing. My son can read. Which is typical for any kindergartner. But this is just the beginning. It's just neat to see your child grow and develop with skills that will take him far in life. Somehow it feels like for that brief second that were doing something right over here :)

Rock Band Baby


Greyson's hair is coming in. It is so cute. I didn't realize how long it was until I spiked it the other day. Rory and Wyatt had fun with Grey's new do too. They kept walking by and chuckling to themselves about the Rock Band Baby!!! He seriously looks just like Brian with his hair identical to dads.
