When Peter came back from Utah he brought home two beautiful tulip plants. He gave Seth the purple tulip plant and he gave me the red one. They’ve been such bright spots in our window all month! Seth was showing them to his little friend and he told her “Daddy gave me the purple lips and he gave Mommy the red lips!” 🙂

 Seth’s “purple lips” My “red lips”

At about two this morning Jerome came and got us up because he said Seth was crying from a bad dream and throwing up. When we ran in there it took us a minute to realize that Seth was neither crying normally or throwing up. He had an attack of croup and was terrified that he could not breath. (He did not seem to be sick yesterday and still only sounds a little hoarse this morning with no other symptoms.) He was better once he calmed down in the steamed bathroom. After a while he wasn’t scared anymore and was breathing easier so I read a book to him before trying to put him back to bed. He chose “The Littlest Angel” and at the end he said “Mommy, I want to be an angel some day.” When I asked him why he said “So I can save the day!” 🙂

This morning Peter was still here when I woke up (he’s so very quiet in the mornings I rarely see him) and Jerome was already awake. This is the sight that greeted me: (Mama, skip the first two!)

 He took his buddy’s advice and twisted it until it came out! Peter took these shots this morning before I got up. I had to convince Jerome to let me keep his tooth instead of him drilling a hole through it to make a necklace! On his way to get a “snaggle tooth” photo a quick swing is always fun! He’s still trying to figure out the posed smile :-) I cropped this one for him because when he saw the photo on my computer he decided he didn’t like his bandana sticking up! Our six year old! :-) Ian followed us up and decided to take his sandle off and he did it! And I decided to keep taking pictures! Ian is 20 months old today There’s Mama! airplanes fly over all the time He does have a handful of words. :-) Then I kept the camera out to snap shots of the boys playing in the afternoon before naps. He was asking me to help him put stuff in his bucket. The clouds were moving so quickly it was amazing! It felt like Spring so I threw open the windows and doors and let the house breathe. Ian discovered the open window with no screen and motioned for me to come see with him! I like how you can see Jerome’s expression here. looking out together Ian decided to look IN from outside! Where’s Jerome? There he is! Ian LOVES to throw things! He was trying to get it through the window. I love his little tongue in that shot! He’s done with the window game… he’s off to find something else to do! Ah! a truck is always fun! his tongue again :-) and big brother to play with! Later Seth found a dandylion growing in our yard and picked it for me. He cracks me up! He’s still making sure I see his flower But his smile was what I was waiting for :-) He made sure I put it in water to grow! :-) He was inspired to go pick some more flowers… and came back with these! I love you Seth!
