over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house we go...

At the end of February, Simeon, Abbi, and I took a trip to see both sets of grandparents. Here are a few highlights from our trip.

It's Been a While

There have been many events since the last entry to blog about but just not enough time. So I will randomly choose some events here and there to update you on and fill in the blanks later.
The most recent of events is a whole week of sickness for our household. We have had many messy diapers and accidents, lots of vomiting, fevers, fatigue, and crankiness. However, through all of the sickness there have been a few highlights through the week. Abbi has now learned how to say "what's that" and "ucky." She has also learned "back" as in give it back, "mine," "ouch," and "help" just to name a few. I'm sure most of those are apparent as to the source of where she learned those few words. She is also doing a very good job of going to sleep without a fuss during nap time and bed time

Simeon has also given us a few highlights from the week. When he has a fever he gets a little "silly." Sometime during the night on Sunday, Simeon came and got in bed with us. He had a fever and didn't feel good so I just let him stay with us and didn't put him back in his own bed. A couple hours of later I awoke to a rousing rendition of "Good Monsters" by Jars of Clay. He sang the chorus through nine times, not once opening his eyes or sitting up. At the end of the ninth round there was complete silence. Simeon has had a rough week but the one thing that seems to bring a smile to his face is the "Good Monsters" song.
