not that you can tell, but...

one room down, too much to go.if you look at the top right corner of the pic, you can see the difference in the trim and the wall. they used to match.
and here are my boys. eventually, i'd like to have a couch or some other kind of furniture under these pictures.

man, i miss these boys!

i met my mom on saturday night, and they went home with her so i could paint for a few days.

making life interesting

casen is becoming alot more adventurous lately. he's so completely different from jacob. as i was making my grocery list, this is what i looked over to see.

he's been pulling up for a while, but it's usually on shorter things. he just hasn't had the strength to pull himself up on something higher. well, not today. looks like we'll be getting those bumpers soon. the fireplace makes me nervous.

a little later, i went into his room to see what he was doing. i found this.

he was not that amused when i left the room to go get the camera while he was stuck on this shelf.

have you ever seen anything so cute?? some sick boys i have on my hands. =)

thanks for the spot, jenny.

home with my boys

all during the WONDERFUL retreat this weekend, i couldn't help but thinking how i'd have to come home on sunday and go straight back to work on monday for the rest of the week. i just wanted to spend time with my boys...all of them.

well, today, i am...two of them, at least. unfortunately it's not for a good reason.

casen and jacob are both sick.

jacob's had a fever, runny nose, and the worst cough ever.

casen's had about the same symptoms.

we made an appointment for jacob to see the doctor. i figured, why not get two for one, so we took casen in as well.

turns out, casen's worse than jacob. he has some sort of bronchial infection. jacob has a cold.

they're both on antibiotics, which is good.

unfortunately, for the second time, dr. w has mentioned the possibility of casen having asthma. it's never been a definite or even something that he wants to look into further, but it's still scary.

my sister has asthma...bad. i don't want that for my little boy.

he's taking a steroid thing right now to try to help with his breathing. the poor thing sounds just horrible. you can hear it all in his chest.

pray for him?

so, i got my time with my boys, i just wish it were under better circumstances.

on a side note, i came home more in love with my husband than ever. something was sparked in me at our little retreat. i asked for it, and He delivered.
