Sick but happy, until he's unhappy that is...

Gosh life seems crazy right now. Maybe it just feels that way because we just had a wonderful but very busy long weekend. On Saturday we visited a super fun farm (and petting zoo) with our friends Mikki and Kelly and their daughter Bailey. The kids had so much fun and Danny was in "tractor" heaven. Any truck will do.

Then a little rugby on the green (well our front yard) with our always wonderful neighbor Greg who Danny adores.

Then it was off to Richmond to visit Su's dad and family including Danny's aunt Mindy who is actually only 2 months old. We call her "auntie baby" with good reason. And do you have any idea how many trucks run up and down Interstate 95? The boy did not sleep a wink on the way back to Washington with all those "ucks" to point at.

But as happy as our little guy looks here with his Cherry Blossom rugby ball, he's actually pretty under the weather. A cold that has gone from bad to worse. Su actually just went to pick him up at Jenni's. It's pretty bad when your son's baby talk comes out sounding like Demi Moore with laryngitis. Clearly his throat is hurting him.

So, for now we lay low and give him every home remedy we can think of for sore throats and slimy runny noses. Except no bourbon and honey for you young man. Unless it will help you sleep better. Hope you're feeling better already baby boy. Love, your Moms

Okay, I have to laugh at the Demi Moore comment!

But, maybe you could try some popsicles for the throat? Or ice cream? Those are my favorite remedies...

And, feel better soon, Dan!

Well we are going to steal a page from your playbook and make him a yogurt smoothie. Yogurt and some mango juice. He'll like drinking it out of a straw. I just talked to Su and she says he's quietly playing now which is good. She hopes he'll take a good nap this afternoon although as you know he's been phasing that out. THanks Jenni. -Monica

I hope he feels better soon. The plague is going around big time this year, we've had it twice in the past few months, no fun. But smoothies are a nice distraction!
