Bless his heart, he had to spend three of the four days he was there confined to an oxygen tent. Not fun for an active 13 month old. Not too fun for his momma either.
We, of course, had to document this fiasco for posterity...
Grayson in a hospital gown in the tent, just chilling.
Me in the tent with him. Oh, the things we'll do for our kids...
He obviously never lost his sense of humor. He gets that from me.

Am I the only one going through this? I realize, of course, that is the point of advertising toys on Nick. Toy manufacturers want kids to see their commercials and beg, and I do mean beg, their parents to buy them. Or ask Santa for them. And naturally, Abby falls for it every time. Darn that 4 year old mentality!
What's even worse is that our Christmas list has been finalized for weeks. I've already bought everything the kids are getting, so the gameplan cannot change now. The play's been called and the ball's been snapped. My Christmas shopping is D-O-N-E, done. She can't be changing her mind this late in the game.
I've been trying to steer her back on course everytime I hear rustlings of discontentment. So far it's working. I think. Who can really tell? Darn that 4 year old mentality!

But seriously, I've commented on the adorable face Grayson makes when he's sleepy. To recap, he grabs his blankie, holds it to his face, gets this faraway look in his eyes, and does his mouth like he's taking a bottle. Much like this...
Now, doesn't that make you forget that the economy is in shambles? That the world is headed south pretty quick? Doesn't it make you want to snuggle up with him and listen to his sweet baby breath while he sleeps? Here it is again...
You know, it's rainy and foggy out, and we are still in our pajamas. I think I will go snuggle up with him and listen to his sweet baby breath.

Burge: "Who are you talking to?"
Abby: "China" (one of Abby's imaginary friends)
Burge: "That was a funny joke she just told me."
Abby: "I didn't say anything."
Burge: "China told me a funny joke."
Abby: "Dad, she's not real."
Laughter from Burge.
Abby: "Snap it out!"
Oh, how I thought that phrase had died. So glad she resurrected it tonight.
