Cabin Fever Shenanigans

A lot been going on around here this morning. First there was this:

Will has been getting the lion's share of attention around here with all his recent ailments. So Harper developed a "cough" this morning in a bid for some sympathy.
Harper: (pretend coughing)
Me: "Oh, are you not feeling well?"
Harper: "Yes. I am very sick like Will. (cough)"
Me: "That's terrible. How can I help you?"
Harper: "I need a blankie and movies and my milk and to be cuddled in your arms."
Me: "Would you like your special blankie?"
Harper: "Yes. I am very sick."
Me: "I'm sorry to hear that. Are you sick with hypochondria?"
Harper: "Yes. I have hypochondria."
Don't fret. She got lots of cuddles and, shortly thereafter, requested her butterfly magnifying glass so she could "solve a mystery."

Then there was this:

Harper: "Hemlock is taking a nap on the piano."

And finally:

Harper: "Will used his magical powers to fill his baby crib with all the pillows!"

Sorry about the clarity. Our camera doesn't work in low light. I think I'd better get these kids out of the house for a while.

Birthday Do-Over

Let's try this again. 

As many of you know, Will's first birthday party was scratched last week due to an unforeseen fever the early morning of. It turned out to be nothing of note and Will bounced back just a few hours later, but you can't exactly say, "Hey! Come to my kid's birthday and have cake! He's probably fine..." so we just cancelled the whole thing.  

Anyway, it's back on. Same basic form and function. We hope you'll be there.

Will's birthday is officially cancelled, again, due to a nasty ear infection. He was up every 45 minutes last night. Brad and I are zombies this morning. Sorry. We really did give it a valiant effort. Maybe next year.   

Of course, this is a very casual affair. Come and go as you please. Please do not bring gifts but if you feel moved to bring a small pot-luck item that would be nice. Or don't. There will be a ton of food. Do bring swim attire for the kids if you'd like them to enjoy the fountains. I will bring a sheet cake so we can get our party on. We hope to see you there!

Our Birthday Boy!

Our darling boy turns one today! Isn't he the most handsome, precious thing you've ever seen? We just love him to pieces!

P.S. Please let me know which one/s you like best. We need to get some photos of our kids on these walls.

P.P.S. I got a couple of photos of Harper, too. Although she was pretty surely throughout the entire ordeal. I fear we have experienced only a little taste of what her teenaged years will bring. I wish they'd just stay young and cute and agreeable forever. It's a good thing we're crazy about her.
