all's quiet on the southwestern front...

we seem to all be well now. thanks for all your support and for staying away from our house when we weren't well:)

anything new for the wilsons?

we were riding in the car today, avery was crying (she has no love for her carseat) and i was making shushing noises and some other noises (trilling etc.) to try to get her attention so she'd stop crying, and ethan says, " you be nice to avery, she's just a baby!" i thought that was cute that he felt he needed to stick up for her, protecting her from my shushing, using a phrase i am sure i have said many, many times to him.:)

other than the occasional sound byte from ethan, we are all doing our normal..i just went to a book club today, love that book club. it's so fun to talk with friends and eat and eventually get around to discussing the books we read...although that is not always our top priority and i like it that way:)

our kids are total gems. i love them so much. what nice little people they are. it is really sweet to hold avery and have her smile at me spontaneously and realize that she might recognize me for the milk and love i give her, by now. and when ethan busts out with his, "i yuv you mommy" during the day intermittent with the constant asking to watch CARS the movie, it just makes my day!

now i will gird my loins, so to speak, for Sunday, which is a wonderful day, but not always the day of rest it was designed to be:) happy sunday y'all....

What an uplifting post after a few horrendous weeks. It's the trials that make us grateful for the nice, sunshiny details about life, eh? Love ya!

What a bug! Glad everyone is feeling better. I don't know if Ethan picks on Avery, but Isaac sure likes to pick on his sister. Then he likes to point out how we should be nice! Gotta love it!
