Gotta Love Mom's Day!!

Made a pretty flower for Mommy

My little "sweetie -heart"


Mother's Day 2009
I can't believe the month of May is almost over!! We've had a fun month. For Mother's Day, Joe took me out for a night downtown. We had dinner at a nice Italian place, Trattoria's , and then we saw the Broadway play - The Lion King. It was AWESOME! We had seats in the orchestra by the aisle so all the animals walked right by. It was so cool.
Harrison made a really cute card with his handprint and a picture. The boys also gave me a stone for the garden with Harry's handprints and some tile. Very nice! Harry made a pretty little planter with a little pink flower (He knows I love pink!) Actually, he has learned that if I'm busy around the house he can usually get me to play with him by bribing me with something pink. It's just too cute. For example...
H- Mama, mama...want to color?
K - No buddy, mommy's making dinner.
H - Mama, mama...want to color?
K - Not right now, Mommy's busy.
This goes on a few more times before he gets up and walks over to me. He puts his sweet little hand on my leg and says, "Mama, want to color with the pink?" He just looks straight into my eyes to my heart - how can I resist those baby blues.

Playtime with Sophie

Yummy Popsicles
Just chillin

Play Ball

Running through the sprinklers

Splish Splash

Harry's cousin Sophie came over to play yesterday afternoon. It was actually a sunny day for once in Oklahoma so they were able to play in the water outside. (Don't pay attention to the weeds in the yard. We've had ALOT of rain so Joe has been slacking on the weed control and mowing duties.) Anyway, Harry showed Sophie how to hit the baseball off the tee and she was actually really good (must get that from her Daddy, right Chuck?) They ate popsicles and played in the sandbox. Seems like they had a fun day! And as always, our fun meter is determined by how early Harry will go to bed - 45 minutes earlier, Yeah for playtime with Sophie!!

Tummy Bug 2009 Update

Harry put cars on the drawer handles and told them to, "sit cars"

His "cheese" face

Well, after sleeping 40 hours (yes, you heard that right 40) Harry is starting to feel better today. His fever is down and he is starting to eat little things like half a banana or a few bites of applesauce. He's actually been up a little bit playing and coloring. Huge improvement from the last couple days. I definitely think he would have ended up in the hospital if Joe and I hadn't been so diligent about keeping his fever under control and keeping him hydrated. He showed some signs of dehydration : rapid heartbeat (168), extremely tired/groggy, only 1 wet diaper in 24 hours, dry lips, fever. But, kudos to us for being such awesome parents! We're so glad to see that sparkle in his eyes and that precious smile back on his face. Harry was very happy to have Grandma stop in to check on him today as well. Thanks again to everyone for calling and sending little prayers our way.

Poor Little Sick Guy

not feeling so well...

Eating a few bites of a Pedialyte Popsicle

Poor little Harry has caught some stomach bug. He woke us up in the middle of the night to tell us "Harry burped", which we now understand to be "barfed" in toddler language. We all had a rough night - between Harry's upset stomach, trying to comfort him, cleaning the floors, and doing 3 loads of laundry - nobody got much sleep.
He has spent the majority of the day laying on the ground or rocking in the chair with me. He just moans and can't seem to get comfortable. He is really breaking our hearts. He's just not feeling well at all. He lifted his shirt and pointed to his belly button and said, "my belly hurts". He is on some anti-nausea meds and tylenol for the fever - the diarhhea will just have to run it's course. As long as his fever doesn't stay consistently high and I can keep getting some sips of fluid in him, we won't have to go to the hospital. Poor little guy! Please say a prayer for our little buddy's speedy recovery.
