Who lives in your heart?

My mother-in-law volunteered to keep Hubb on Friday night and Jeremy and I went to dinner. Well, Bon Bon has a playroom at her house, and in that playroom she happened to have a heart. It was a tin heart that probably had chocolates in it at some point, just a small little box the kids can play with. So, Hubb picked up the heart and held it to his heart, and he said "heart." Bon Bon was impressed that he knew what a heart was, and that he could hold it up to his actual heart. Here comes the good part. Bon Bon said, "Hubb, what's in your heart?" And without flinching, he said "Jesus!" Naturally, I spent all weekend asking Hubb where his heart was, and who lives in his heart. And let me tell you, there is no greater sound in the world than hearing your toddler exclaim "Jesus!"

Fun Friday

The weekend is here- hooray! Can't wait to spend some quality time with the boys. In other news, most of my {4} faithful blog readers already know the news that I am pregnant with numero dos! We are excited, thrilled, and can't wait to see what our life will be like as a family of 4. Baby Dos will be here in September, so it's gonna be a scorcher of a summer. And I thought, since it's Friday, and since the picture uploader thing on the blog isn't working for me and it's messing up my previously planned post, that I would leave with you a link to very funny post on what NOT to do/say to a pregnant woman.

Now I will tell you that of course I don't feel as strongly about any of these things as the writer, BUT, towards the end of pregnancy, you can start to feel like you may want to drop the 'bow on the next person who tells you that your face is retaining water. Oh really? Thanks! You sure do know how to make a girl feel pretty! So, while I may not get as irritated as the article suggests, there are definite boundaries that shouldn't be crossed. And here they are:

Things I *Wanted* to Say While Pregnant

Have a great weekend!

Tubes- yikes!

My sweet baby Hubb has had a REALLY rough winter! He had the stomach bug once, but mainly his problem has been colds, ear infections, etc. Hubb has asthma and has to take breathing treatments twice a day even when he's well, and when he is sick, he has a separate breathing medication he takes every few hours. If he catches a little cold, it usually turns into a prolonged bout of wheezing, which is usually followed by an ear infection. Bless my little man's heart!

So, yesterday we went to see Dr. Cawthon, and ENT and such a SUPER NICE doctor. He took one look in Hubb's ears and told us he needed tubes in the worst kind of way. So, our sweet little one is getting tubes next Thursday, and I am one nervous wreck. I know it is a very minor procedure- it literally takes the doctor 5-8 minutes to perform- but of course I am scared!

However, I have heard wonderful things about tubes- people have told me they made the biggest change in their child! So if you have any words of wisdom, send it my way! If you have horror stories about tubes, please refrain from sharing.

And, since this post was somewhat of a Debbie Downer, I will leave you with just a few pictures taken by Tyler Cladwell. He is so talented- let me know if you need his info for pics!
