My spiffy little man

Henry, in his Sunday attire, excited about another new day:

...and planning on being well hydrated.

PS Grandma J, the pants fit great and we got lots of comments on his sweater vest and matching socks!

We're still here!

Yes, everyone, we are still alive. Henry has been A-OK for just over a week and I'm over the mono so we're doing fantastic. I think Jim picked up the mono, but also seems to be doing better each day.

Jim and I are certain that Henry was hoarding new knowledge while he was sick b/c the moment he woke up all better, he was jibber-jabbering away with all these new words and talking to us like it was all very normal. He also has been known to be very moody in the past, but since he's been well, he has turned into this funny, always happy little boy. I probably just jinxed it but whatever. He has been SO fun!

Here are my new favorite Henry-isms:

Bless you mama/daddy
(oh yes, after we sneeze OR burp)

Ho Ho Ha Ha??
(wanting HoHoHo Hosanna over and over and over)

He is totally into giving eskimo kisses...shoot

When we all sit down at the table, he throws his hands out, waiting for us to pray so he can eat. :)

Throwing his arms out and saying, "TA DA!"

Here's a pic of him two weekends ago when we visited Jim's parents in Lyden:

That is all for now. Many things to of a mother, you know.

Zoo trip #2

We were able to do a few fun things while my mom was here and going to the zoo was one of them. It was so fun - Henry was WAY more into the animals this time!

My best friend...Goat

"Mama...the kitty is looking at me!"

Yep. He's not a baby anymore!

Green! There's green everywhere!

I'll tell you what...having a really sick child is so sad! We found out yesterday that Henry has ear infections and a sinus infection and will mostly likely hold his fever (which has been steady at 102) for a few days. Everything is different. He didn't wake up until 9 am this morning, he ate one, that's O-N-E, nibble of banana and three Cheerios, and then asked for "nigh-nigh" at 10:30 am. During this period of awake time, we pretty much just sat on the couch and watched "Poo Poo," with the occasional chuckle at silly Pooh leading to a round of coughing to which Henry would sincerely reply, "" Poor kid - he doesn't know what to do with the "stuff" that gets coughed up and he looks at me so desperately to help. He pretty much just swallows it back down. Usually during his protesting of the nasty stuff making it's way into his mouth, he ends up blowing two lovely streams of green liquid from his nostrils. Blech.

Anyhow, we're holding up just fine. It seems that Henry knows what his body needs and is very good at asking to just go to bed. Such a sweet boy.

Here's a pic of him this morning watching his favorite bear:

Last week

...was great and awful at the same time. My mom was here, which turned out to be a total God-send because we found out I have mono and let's just say my body went nuts on me. Anyhoo, we're pretty sure Henry has it too, but it just manifests as a really bad cold in small children, which he has to the 10th degree. Poor us. But thank heavens for my mother, who watched Henry SO much while I kept having to go to the doctor and have all sorts of tests done, etc. It was perfect timing and Henry just loved having her here! We were able to fit in a couple fun things, like going to the zoo and seeing some good friends. Thanks, mom! We love you and miss you!

Here are a couple picks from last week:

Henry and Grandma...double trouble
