My kids this week....

Posted by  | Friday, May 15, 2009  at 11:35 AM  
Actually last weekend! I've not taken very many pictures this week as its been a wild one! Stomach bug for me on Monday. Stomach bug for the little girl I keep (Ava) on Thursday. We had fun the weekend before with Jacob's brothers from Colorado and South Carolina in town. The cousins enjoyed some afternoon sprinkler fun.

Will and his four year old cousin, Sarala. They had a great time playing together. I love seeing how Will is growing up with his cousins on both sides of the family. He knows them well and sees them often! They have a blast together.

Adeline preferred snack in Daddy's lap to playing in the water. She had just woken up from a nap. Speaking of naps - I love Adeline's napping habits lately, but not so much Will's! They are sporadic, which comes with the territory I suppose. I like predictability and Adeline's are almost always at least two hours. Some days, Will doesn't sleep or sleeps for less than an hour. Other days (yesterday) he sleeps for FOUR hours. From what I hear, this will continue throughout year four.

On Friday, we took the kids to Jumpin' Beans. They loved it! (I did too, even if it was where I probably got my stomach bug!) Here Sam is trying to teach Adeline how to climb. She was not as skilled as he was.

She loved crawling around though! It was great, as we were almost the only ones there. Normally, these things scare me (an irrational fear I inherited from my mother) but it was great when they were empty!

Sadly, Saturday night didn't end on a happy note for Will. I was actually out of town from Friday evening on. I was planning to return home on Mother's Day, just in time for lunch. After Will (and his cousin Sarala) fell off a porch swing - he ended up at Wake Med Children's ER for some staples. Thankfully, his Aunt Lauren is a pediatrician and she was there! In my absence she went with Jacob and Will and was able to prepare him better than we would have been. He only cried when they were leaving the hospital when he wasn't allowed to keep playing!

This is our third experience at the Wake Med Children's ER and I think they're GREAT! If you are in our area, consider it if you ever need ER services. We took Adeline when she 8 weeks old for a high fever (that was a UTI) and Will one other time when he choked on some carrots. Our visits are always as quick and painless as possible. Its nice knowing the staff is very skilled at working with kids! That makes a huge difference!

Hope you all are having a great week. Let us hear how your kids are doing! There is always something to share!

Sorry about the ER visit, but I just wanted to second your opinion of the Wake Peds ER. We had to take my daughter there while visiting family over Christmas, and they were so wonderful! We saw a really friendly resident and had the sweetest and most compassionate nurses. And we were in and out in almost no time at all! No one enjoys an ER visit, but they really made it as pleasant as possible. :o)

I have to agree about Wake Med. We were sent there when Zeke was 8 weeks and sick. They did a wonderful job keeping a first time super nervous set of parents calm and up to date on everything going on. And hey, we have already gotten our first ER visit out of the way, with a boy I am figuring there will be many...
