A few things I.....

feel sorry about.... 
      - neglecting this blog and therefore all of you who read it to stay informed. 


        - being sick- both booger butt and myself :( 

Thankfully we are working through it at home with no need for the hospital yet. However, last week did hold an overnight for us because of fresh blood and clots coming out of his trach. Which leads me to number 2....

       - Not being trusted by doctors who think we are reactionary.
....because that looks totally normal, right? Anyway, we got it all straight and Theodore is fine. However, it got super old super quick when everyone kept saying that we "must have been scared" and "a little bit of blood when suctioned" and all of these other things insinuating that we were crazy. I'm glad I had the forsight to take a picture. The concensus was that it was a burst blood vessel in his lung that he was, thankfully, able to cough out without it causing any damage. But this leads me to my number 3....

      - the hospital. Just in general. I hate it. 
But Theodore was awesome and laid back and I couldn't have asked for more.

am thankful for...

     - this little booger butt. 

He's so sweet and getting so big and he is WALKING EVERYWHERE. I love him.

     - these booger butts...


Family is the best. I love my kids and how they love their cousins. :)

     - and finally the other booger butt... 
I'm thankful for this man who stands beside me. Sail on!

promise to do...

     - I'm going to TRY to keep this updated like I used to. It is my mission!

For this rainy day.

Hearkening back to the warm wonderful days a few weeks ago. Park time with the kids :)

And that's how Theodore spent a good bit of Easter. He did take part in the Easter egg hunt but lost interest after 3 eggs. 

All in all it was a good day. I'd love to say I have a picture of all of us together, but it didn't happen :( With all the loading up and unloading and setting up and breaking down we totally forgot. In fact, these are the only pictures taken at all that day. Oh well. One forgotten (or not) Easter picture will not be what's remembered in 10 years anyway.

#boundtohappen #didntwasteanytime

That is Theodore's new bed. His big boy bed that we have been waiting on forever. (He is just waaaaaaaay too big for a crib.) It came yesterday and we had a successful first night. He loves it. In fact, the other kids love it since they can actually get in it and all fit at the same time. The sides go up and down just like a hospital bed so it's super convenient.

Yeah, Theodore fell out. Second night. He doesn't waste any time at all. I knew this was going to most likely happen since the sides don't come up near as far as on a crib. And he doesn't exactly go to sleep as soon as you lay him down. 

He seems fine. Kids are resilient, right?? 

We'll see if he still loves his bed tomorrow.

Park time.

Spring is trying so hard!! It's really really almost here. There have even been a handful of truly spring like days. Yay! And we are taking advantage of them. The kids and I have been taking walks and I even (ssshhhh, don't tell them) took Theodore to the park without them. 

At first he wasn't sure if he liked the slide

But then he decided he did.

 The swing too!

And just for cuteness sake, throwing in the picture of him on his first swing ride last year.
