I have a friend whose 3 year old is sick and in the hospital so I got to watch her 2 month old baby today. Have I mentioned how much I absolutely love love love that age (and younger) where they just sleep cuddled up on your chest. AAHHH it is heaven to me. So I spent the whole time just snuggling w/ her. And it was just as good as I remembered. And of course all of my kids LOVED her. They all took turns holding her and holding the bottle while I fed her. It was all very very sweet. So after Eliott came home from church, he and I were talking and I said something to the effect of "we like babies in this house" and Seth busts in w/ "LITTLE babies" so we had a good laugh about that. and then when a friend came to pick her up from our house she brought over some goodies. After she left and tears were shed by Lexi (because the baby left) I told her, "but look she came and took the baby but she brought us some cookies!!!" and Seth says "wow, we made a good trade mom!!"

Then we go to leave and Riley loses it. She had been so great, they all had and she just melts down. It was fabulous!! Oh well, it was great while it lasted and I have pictures to prove the perfectness!!
So the deal w/ poor pathetic seth is: he started this yucky drainage thing later in the day on friday. But it wasn't too bad and knowing he changed insurance on monday I just didn't want to deal w/ it. Well the goop got thicker and greener. Serious nasty stuff here. So he had a bad infection that caused so much pressure it caused his ear drum to rupture. Poor kid!! And to top it off, he has a cough that won't quit and a fever tonight. So I had to call our home teachers to come over and give him a blessing since Eliott is still out of town. But thankfullly he gets home tomorrow!! Wahooo!!! So much for trying to be a fun mom when dad leaves town!! At least I hit the library!
