We are all sick! Oliver got sick when we went to WV two weeks ago. Two days ago Bob and I and Wyatt all picked up whatever it is that he had. He's still sick, too. I took him to the dr today and they said give him Mucinex for a few days to see if that helps and if not we have a scrip for antibiotics. Fun! Bob and Wyatt were both running fevers today, although Wyatt's has gone down in the last hour or so. I tried to make some soup but it was a disaster. I didn't think about putting the noodles in the slowcooker and they became MUSH. I guess I'll be the only one eating that big vat of goop. We did end up getting a good nap ...Bob and Oliver for about an hour and Wyatt and I for about 2.

Oh yeah, I actually did give Wyatt some carrots today. He ate them up! he's going to be a good eater like Oliver, I think.

So it's the last day of the year and here we are, sick as dogs. What a way to go out!

So much to update!

I have so much to write and so many pictures but there is just no time lately!! Oliver has another cold with a horrible cough. Wyatt is eating cereal and has tried sweet potato. Oliver is talking in sentences, complete whole sentences. Wyatt is rolling over tummy to back and from back to side (he can almost make it over!). Oliver helped pick out and decorate the Christmas tree...he also helped open everyone else's presents. Oliver loves tools and fixing things. We (with help from Uncle Digits and Aunt Ani) got him a tool chest for Christmas. His favorite is the drill. Wyatt got some squeaky blocks that he just loves to chew on. I can't wait to post pictures. When I do it will be JUST pictures unless there's an especially cute story to go with it.
We had a trip to WV recently, too. We all enjoyed seeing Mammaw and Pappy Lucian and Cheryl and Angie and their families. Pictures and maybe a story or two later
Bob is enjoying his break from school, we're having a little bit of relaxing. If we get the kids in bed at a decent hour we can watch a movie or something!...together!! It's nice to have some time together.
Bob's birthday is this Saturday. I don't know what we are going to do for it but we'll do something. He's 35 this year! I actually managed to get a Saturday off work for it.
I've been busy working and taking care of the house and the boys. Nothing is really new with me, I suppose. I have gained 5 pounds (maybe a bit more) over the holidays but I'll be losing that in '09 plus the last 5 that I gained with Wyatt.
Maybe when the boys go to sleep I can get those pictures posted!

Sitting up in the Boppy

Wyatt has gotten really good at sitting up as long as he's in the Boppy. I love the faces in these pictures!

Wyatt, where's the octopus?

I'm a big boy!!

oh the upset tummy!

I had an upset tummy all day yesterday. I managed to muddle through the day pretty well. Bob got home from work pretty early so it was a bit easier on me. We ran some errands in the afternoon and ended up going out for dinner. Oliver only ate fruit (melon and orange) and a bit of bread. I tried to eat a salad but it was horrible. I did end up eating most of a giant blueberry muffin and drinking about 3 glasses of Sprite. I wasn't really feeling much better by the time we were getting ready for bed but I still had to feed Wyatt and get him ready for bed. Oliver had gone to bed around 8:30 or so. he woke up just before Law and Order was over sooo...around 11? He was fussy and crying so Bob started to rock him. Next thing poor Bob knew Oliver was puking all over. Bob rushed him into the bathroom to get him cleaned up. I put (sleeping) Wyatt down and went in to help. Poor Oliver, he's never thrown up before so it probably scared him and it can't have felt or tasted very good either. When I walked in he started to throw up again so I put him over the toilet until he was done. I wiped his poor little face with a cool rag and then I very carefully took off his shirt, pants and socks; all of which were covered with melon and orange chunks. Bob went and got him some juice and fresh jammies (Batman!). I cleaned him up as best I could and then tried to get him to drink some of the juice but he didn't want it. He was so sad and snuggly that we ended up putting him in our bed for the rest of the night. He slept pretty well and woke up happy and normal today so I'm hoping the puking is over! I'm still not feeling well but we both had some dry toast for breakfast and are feeling a little better than yesterday.

I didn't realize we only had 2 weeks before Christmas!! I haven't bought anything...anything at all! I have to make Wyatt a stocking and I still have no idea what to put on it. I have to make something for the potluck at work...I have visitors coming (maybe) this weekend and we're going to WV next week. So much to do and we are running out of time!
