Life with Four

Our second born seems to have been sick over half his life! He is finally over the flu and still has diarrhea and his tummy is swollen and Gabe isn't happy when you touch it. I had the privilege of counting his dirty diapers today and taking samples - the things mothers do for the children they love! If the samples come back parasite free, we're off to a GI specialist at Cooks for some tests.

Drew is into the "why" phase of childhood. Not the disobedient, "Why do I have to clean my room" type, but the "Why is the sky blue, and why can't hundreds of helium balloons lift me into the sky?" questions. Drew always has questions for us. He is into imagination and playing with his brother. He loves to be the center of attention and is just now realizing that Gabe is also vying for that same attention. Drew had a wonderful birthday and is enjoying all his fun discoveries. For example, the electronic rocket ship isn't to be taken into the bathtub, only the plastic one that doesn't make noise can go in the water. Too bad he had to learn that lesson the hard way.

We're enjoying our week with Grandpa Tractor and Grandma Carol. Drew is really enjoying having Grandpa read him Winnie The Pooh, Drew can interrupt with all the "Why" questions and Grandpa patiently answers them all.
