A Very Merry Unbirthday and Cyclops Davie
Grace's school gave the kids with summer birthdays a chance to celebrate theirs early. We chose the first day possible because hopefully this baby will make her appearance soon and I will be unavailable for making cupcakes and such. Grace had so much fun making cupcakes with me. We stole the idea from my sis-in-law Stacey and made little lady bug cupcakes. I was bored about two cupcakes in, but twenty-four later we were finally done.
Here is Grace, ready for a grand adventure. She packs up all sort of miscellaneous things on a daily basis and sets off on adventures. I think she has her mom and dad's wanderlust.
In keeping with our eventful life's David woke up the other morning with his eye completely swollen shut. I was pulled out of sleep hearing Grace say to David, "Oh, look at your eye...let's take you to the doctor." He did look pretty funny. By the time I finally took this picture, it was already looking much better. Poor David kept running into things as he ran around to play. I couldn't help but laugh a little.
We went to the doctor and within 24 hours he was pretty much back to his normal self. Which is really a little frightening. I think I am raising a little criminal. A few days ago David and I were leaving to pick Grace up from school. I let him out of the house and he ran straight to his playhouse. I followed him and knocked on the door. The next thing I know I see Davie diving out the back window without hesitation and running the other direction. What kind of one-year-old is already that good at escaping? I see more ER visits, and possibly police visits in our future.
