Maybe pretty soon I'll look like this... or NOT

Henderson has good moments, but is still running a very low grade fever and sleeping a little more than usual and wanting to be held constantly,s o not 100%, but definitely on the way.
Yesterday we all went to the Alabama/Kentucky basketball game and then headed to Birmingham for an engagement dinner with my sister and my parents and her fiance's parents, grandmother and brother and his wife and baby. It was at an authentic Italian restaurant in Alabaster and it was so much fun. It did emphasize why we do not EVER take Wilson to restaurants - at nearly 2 1/2 he still doesn't do well. When a child is in no way entertained with food and has the energy of a 6 week old puppy, you might as well hang it up for sitting still for 2 hours. At one moment I looked up and Wilson was in the KITCHEN - I think the cooks were about to have a heart attack! He is so little and fast that I kept thinking he was stiing with someone else and I lost him, but only for a moment! In the end he was satisfied with the AWESOME cake Matt's mom bought (a miniature of the wedding cake Katie picked out) and sugar packets - YES this Dietitian mom let her children eat sugar straight out of sugar packets at the table!!!! Whatever works, right?

Still no smiles from this little guy though....
At about 10:30 I got a call from the school notifying me that Henderson was running a fever again and coughing really bad and just seemed sick. So my father-in-law picked him up for me and I called the doctor. They told me to bring him in, and the diagnosis...

Henderson is getting faster and faster every day. His favorite spot is at the top of any of the 2-step steps in our house (there are 3 of them). He just sits there and smiles and waits for someone to help him down - he's fallen enough to have a healthy fear! Now for the big staircase, that's another story. Wilson has also learned in the last week to unlock the gate, so I can't keep Henderson out of my sight when Wilson is awake!

(and besides, I can't wait to see all the cute outfits Michelle wears and how they deal with 2 very young girls in the White House!)
Happy Day to you all!

Emma Claire is still at Chandler's house and both boys are asleep (for the moment - I'm sure Henderson will be up any minute now from his 45 minute nap=). I'm still in my pajamas and loving a COLD day inside with no plans to go anywhere!
Happy Saturday and Happy LONG Weekend (for me anyways - thank you, State of Alabama)

*****An update -- after seeing more details about this on the news and Internet, this was an amazing event - maybe Jesus really was there walking on water with them all! A big shout out to the quick acting and talented pilot and his crew and to all the rescue workers in the fine city of New York! Once again, we see the community come together for good!

Almost cute of both, but Henderson's eyes are shutting!
Cute of Henderson, Wilson being stubborn!
Henderson thought it was really funny - me trying to get a good picture!

she threw up all on herself and her DVD player (which was in her lap). My sister was meeting us there to help out, but she was in the wrong parking deck, so I was on my own for a few minutes. Luckily I had a change of clothes, a tub of baby wipes, an empty Target bag and some hand sanitizer. I got Emma Claire - as carefully as I could - out of the car and stripped her down, right there on the 5th floor of the 6nd Ave parking deck. I wiped her down, put her very soiled clothes in the Target bag and put some clean clothes on her. I did my best to clean out the car and wipe down the DVD player - not sure we would be able to save that baby! Katie arrived, and I told her she might want to take EC and H back to my parents house, but EC insisted on going with us. She seemed fine, so I relented. Turns out she was fine - my guess is that it was car sickness - combination of sitting in the very back seat, looking down to watch a movie and going around and around and around in the parking deck. She was ready to eat again and play and laugh, so no virus!
I have cleaned, spayed, disinfected, Resolved, wiped, sprayed again my car 4 TIMES and it still smells bad - any ideas on how to get the smell out - I have leather seats, but some must have gotten on the carper under the seat or something. I need help!!!!
OH yeah, the cardiology appt. - The ped. cardiologist listened to his heart and he said he can hear what the other doctors are hearing, then he did an ultrasound and said he was perfectly normal. What they are hearing is nothing - because he is extremely thin, they can hear the heart SO WELL (because there is literally nothing between the stethoscope and the heart) that they think they are hearing a murmur. I trust him - does this sound right to any of you nurses or doctors??? Anyhow, Wilson did great and EC and Henderson were awesome too - though with the amount that Henderson crawled around on the floor, we are bound to have a virus of some kind now! Thanks to Katie, b/c even though they were all good, 3 children 4 and under in a small doctor's office is still a HANDFUL!!!!

Then, randomly, she asks "how do you get there?"
Not really, sure what she's talking about, I ask "where?"
And she says, "THERE!" and points to a picture of Jesus in heaven (I'm assumming - He's up in the sky)
And, like I try to always do, I answer her question with a question to get her thinking and I ask her "how do you get to heaven?" (b/c we talk about this all the time)
She doesn't answer right away, so I begin to remind her that Jesus lived a perfect life and died on the cross for our sins and rose on the 3rd day and if we believe in Him and trust Him and tell Him we're sorry for our sins and ask Him to live in our hearts, then THAT'S how we go to heaven.
Well, her answer to that was: "If I learn all my Bible verses everyday and remember them forever, that's how I will get to heaven?"
And I say, "Well, that's really great and all, and Jesus wants you to learn your Bible verses and all, but that is not what gets you to heaven."
And at this point I can tell she is getting a little frustrated with me, and she says emphatically, "NO, how do you GET to heaven?"
And I realize, that in her 4 year old mind, she is literally trying to visualize going UP to heaven. (Remember the pogo stick question?) I tell her I have no idea, that that is something we will just have to wait and see and ask Jesus when we get to heaven, which I hope is a VERY long time from now.

Emma Claire and Wilson enjoyed lots of cake and goodies!
My children love to be "front and center"!
Before the big tumble! - All smiles!
Why is Wilson standing so still?
It has something to do with his "Balloon Obsession"
Yes, he screamed and threw a fit until he got it!
York peppermint patty - coming out of the mouth! - He shoved the whole thing in there and I MADE him chew it up and swallow it - Lovely!
