Last week Ryder took a midnight trip to the ER with what we thought was an asthma attack. Turned out to be croup, which we've never had before. Happy to report he's doing much, much better and is back to his old self. Here's a look at him at the hospital:
I have it on good authority he was flirting the entire time he was there and that all the ladies loved him. I think we're in trouble with this one.
Saturday night Emmerson fell asleep in the chair and Zach took her upstairs to bed around 10:45. All of a sudden he's yelling, "MOM! MOM! We're puking!!!" And just like that, she's thrown up all over herself, and her bed. We get her in the bath, the bedding stripped down and put her into our bed, with a puke bowl, and she does it again. All over our bed. Repeat the above steps. Change sheets. Repeat puking all over the bed. The bath. Changing the sheets. Now, you may be thinking that we are not quick studies and that surely we could figure out something other than letting her puke in our bed. Twice. But no. Needless to say, she did learn to actually hit the bowl and we stayed clean the rest of the night. Which is a really good thing considering she was sick about every 15 minutes, until 5am. While I sprung into action (I've got reflexes like a cat, even while pregnant.) every 15 minutes, the husband sawed logs on the couch. The whole night. She was fine about noonish on Sunday and as to date, no one has since been sick.
In other news, Ryder has become obsessed with his Jayhawk jammies (no comments necessary about the game, folks. We're fans. Win or lose.)
Typically he doesn't wear the ruby red slippers but they did add a little something special, don't you agree? I won't let him wear the jammies, or the shoes, when we go out so he puts the jammies on as soon as we get home. Thankfully this obsession does not include the shoes. They were a one time gig for him. I'm hoping his fashion sense gets a little more trendy the older he gets.
And finally, we've acutally had some nice weather, after our snow storm on Saturday. So here are some pictures of the kiddos playing outside yesterday. Enjoy!
Note Emmerson's fashion statement with the boots. Sassy.
