Why do they do the things they do?

Wilson does the funniest thing EVERYTIME I pick him up from preschool, he says
"mommy!!!!!" with the biggest smile on his face and runs to give me a hug, and THEN immediately starts bawling crying (and I mean can't catch a breath crying) EVERYTIME????? It is quite hilarious and all the teachers just look at him stupified b/c he's not cried all morning long!!!???

I guess he's just so overwhelmed with emotion that he just doesn't know what to do with it all!!! =)

Emma Claire:

Will had to work late last night (until 3:00 am), so Emma Claire slept with me and when he came home he slept in Emma Claire's bed so he wouldn't be woken up in the morning -- yeah right!!!! While I was in the shower, Emma Claire woke up (out of my bed) and immediately went down to give her daddy the picture she had drawn him last night (that I specifically told her to just hang on the door - tied with a beautiful stain ribbon nonetheless -that's my girl!) and then came back upstairs and while she was pottying I looked out of the shower and this is how it went:

Me: good morning pretty girl

EC: good morning - daddy's sleeping, but i gave him the picture I drew for him

Me: You did what? EC, why did you wake your daddy up?

EC: But I was afraid he wouldn't see it and I wanted him to see what a good job I did!! (with the saddest face you ever did see)

Me: Okay (what do you say?), but don't wake him up again!

5 minutes later:

EC: Mommy! I hear Wilson on the monitor, can I go get him?

Me: He can come out, I already opened the door this morning, so he'll come up when he wakes up.

EC: Ughh, mommy? I closed that door when I went downstairs.

Me: fine, EC, go down and open the door, but do not wake your brother up, unless he's already awake

2 minutes later:

Wilson: mommy! daddy night night!!!

Me: EC, did you go in your room again and wake up daddy?

EC: Wilson did!

Me: But how did Wilson know that daddy was in your room?

EC: I showed him!

AAGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!! Sorry Will!

30 minutes later as we are loading up the car to leave:

EC: (Frantic!) Mommy it's share day - I need to find something to take to school to share!

Me: Okay, EC, go find something really quick, but be very quiet! (in other words, don't wake up your daddy again)

2 minutes later, still no EC in the car, I go to find her - where is she???? Her ROOM!!!!! Sorry again Will! We settle on a Ballerina Barbie Doll (not in her room by the way).

On another note, for the last 2 days, I've been putting Rice Cereal in Henderson's bottles and he WILL NOT drink them - I've widened the nipple and it flows out fine, but he will only take maybe 2 ounces intead of 5-6. So I'm stopping the cereal in bottles, he seems to like it fine from the spoon (what stays in his mouth), but not so much from the bottle - I guess it taints the perfect bre*** milk!!! =) He's still such a joy and smiles so much and sleeps so good!
We are tailgating tomorrow on the quad - with ALL 3 children - so pray for me - (mainly that we don't lose Wilson) - he's so stinkin' fast!!! ROLL TIDE!!!!
