way to break in the new year boys! both the big boys had a rough stomach bug this past week. when rex was sick, gus would pretend to barf in the bucket just like rex. completely hysterical. though possibly contributed to him getting the bug a few days later. surprisingly[not] he was not able to apply that practice when he was the was barfing. ah well.
they were both very sweet and would pat the other's face, saying sweet things.
"ok wex? you ok?"
when gus would throw up, he'd help us wipe him up and say, "tank tu, mama, tank tu" in the sweetest most pathetic voice ever.
i do secretly like my kids being wimpy and sick, just a little, (i know i'm not the only one!;-)) b/c they are so sweet and snuggly. and they just need their mommy. at one point rex said, "mommy...i just need to hold you."
a few kid quotes.
"daddy, that fountain is almost sizes as you."
[i have no idea why "sizes as you" = "is almost the same size as you". but it's CUTE"
"mommy, at school, i saw a 4 whee-wer that looked like a moanercycle!"
[2 of the only few words left he says wrong...in one sentence! love it]
gus is harder to quote...but in his bedtime prayer he's now clearly including leo, rex and daddy. not sure what exactly i have to do to make that list...but i'm hopeful i'll be added soon.
gus does talk to me about leo a lot. "mama, get 'em. cwyin'." "mama, baby. paci?"
speaking of leo. we've seen some good smiles lately.
