Sometimes we need to do maintenance work in our bus. Liam is getting the tires, and I'm making sure all the beads are in place.
Look at this handsome driver!
And the best is last... my usual two handed hold on something and then bam! A one handed hold! Mommy has to help me get into this position... she has me sit on her leg while she is sitting.. then I push up to a stand. If I have my shoes on then I like to stand up for awhile.

The dr said Liam has double ear infection (STILL) and I have the same upper respitory bug. Heavy sigh. Back on another 10 days of Augmentin. And back to **LOTS** of poopy diapers. Mommy is tired. See last night in the wee hours of the morning, daddy got sick. And he hasn't had any energy today. So mommy has been wiping butts, bleaching down bathrooms, running the washing machine (Dear Lord don't EVER let my washing machine breakdown), using the Lysol wipes everywhere, making chicken noodles and dumplings for those that want to eat.... and rocking to sleep those that don't want to eat.
This bug needs to leave our home..... now. So, no developmental therapy tomorrow, no feeding therapist, no OT.... Just lots of time at home to get better and rest. Please say a prayer for our health to return soon.

Mommy, me and Liam at Promise. Mommy and daddy were both at work today, so we went to Promise and had LOTS of fun. But before mommy left for work.... the teachers said something about a mommy's day surprise so they took this SWEET picture of the three of us.
Here is the only picture mommy snapped of me at Children's this week. She wanted to get more pictures, but the appt just didn't go the way we wanted it to!
Hannah has the WONDERFUL opportunity to have a 4-H horse project. She was given a free older horse named Mac (huge blessing) and has taken great care of him. She will be showing him tomorrow at a horse show in Lynden. Go big sista!
Here is my younger brother asleep with the feed bag on! Hey, those were mashed potatoes and gravy.... come'on Liam, wake up!

While mommy and I waited for our appointment the clowns came to visit us! They were SO SILLY! I was laughing, mommy was singing their silly songs and I tried to pop all the bubbles they were blowing..... if only we could have visited the clowns and then gone home.
We had three doctors join us for the appointment because I'm so cool! I didn't really enjoy any of them though. They did an EKG and talked to mommy about continuing the heart medications. The mitral valve has a "moderate" leak. A bunch of blood goes this way and that way and gets all mixed up... it's called regurgitation. Not what we wanted to hear.
What's next? We will be heading back to see these doctors in October for an echocardiogram and a look at the valve. We will know more about a plan of action at that point.

This last picture is of Hannah with her name written in white corral on black lava stones. Why? Well, her friend Alyssa was here last week (the week prior to our vacation) and Aly set up a scavanger hunt for Hannah and thru all the clues we were able to find the final 'treasure'.... her name had been written by Aly in the lava stones! Such a fun thing to find.
Big brother Nate went on the submarine too although he wasn't feeling well at all! Cousin Willie and auntie Shawnee had fun on the submarine too.
They took a boat ride out to where the submarine was docked.
The blue picture above was of a sunken ship and there were LOTS of fishes living there!
What am I doing in the car when we are in Hawaii? Well, daddy wants to visit his friend Will and wife Robin in Captain Cook. So, away we go!
The airline was generous to 'lend us' a car seat. Note to all the other mommies and daddies out there, don't take the airline up on this when the carseat you packed has been lost. Just cut your losses and go purchase a new one which we did later this day. The loaner was horrible.
Will and Robin own a 3 acre farm and we had plenty of chances to relax! They have 75 avocado trees, countless macadamia nut trees, myers lemons, papaya and mango trees. And, most important they had wild turkeys! I guess these crazy birds roam the big island. Mommy laughed every time she saw one of these ugly guys running around.
I'm still sick. Mommy and daddy had to drag the nebulizer and cpt thing along to the island. Big brother Nate is now sick too. Liam and mommy have the sickness in their eyes now too (nice pink eyes). Blah!

Here is a picture of all six of us, nothing glamorous, just lots of love and fun! Mommy had just returned from church is the only reason she resembles 'cleanness'. Thanks aunt Debbie for taking our picture!
And last but not least, mommy had to work in a picture of my current eats. All with no teeth! I ate about half of the hamburger, and everything else! Those mini tater tots go down real easy!
