Pics from the past few days....
Gage came to visit Daddy in the hospital...
He was pretty intimidated at first, but in the end...he was very glad to see Daddy! He even tried to take his temperature.
And of course, there was some nose-picking with Darnin'.
As a side note...have I ever told the story of why he calls her "Darnin'"???? Well....everytime we would part ways with her after a visit, she would stand outside of the car & blow kisses. She would say, "Bye, Darling!" One night, Gage & I were rocking, and we were practicing blowing kisses. He started saying, "Bye, Darnin'." He associated my mom with "darling" & blowing kisses. He's called her "Darnin" ever since. It's so cute!
Like I said...my mom stayed with us for a few days to help with Gage, and give my mother in law a break & a chance to visit with Hubby....AAAAND....she helped me clean house, and put the Christmas stuff back up in the attic (it has been boxed up & sitting in various locations around the house for a while now, but Hubby hasn't felt well enough to help me load it up in the attic). Anyway...it was a BIG help!
...Now, take a moment to look in his crib. LOOK AT HOW MUCH STUFF IS IN THERE. He insists on it. And, if you remove one item when he's nowhere around, you can bet that come bedtime, he will notice that it is missing. So, parents of kiddos younger than mine---BEWARE. Set limits now on what they can & cannot take into the crib. Because now, he INSISTS on sleeping with AAAAALLLLLLL of those things!
