Anyways, I finally sat him down inside and held him on my lap so I could talk to him and figure out why he was being so testy. Well, as soon as I held him on my lap I realized what was wrong. The kid was burning up with a fever, and upon closer inspection I could see that his eyes were all glazed-over with that "I am sick" look. So needless to say I felt really bad for dragging him around for an hour trying to make him smile and hold Calvin. But after a dose of Ibuprofen, a nap, some orange juice and fruit snacks, he now feels much better. Sometimes I honestly think having two kids makes you space out a lot more frequently. Like yesterday, I was getting in the car with Ryan and Calvin and I let Ryan climb up into his seat by himself while I put Calvin in. Then I got in and turned on the car and put it in gear and RYan said, "Um, Mom?" And I said "Yes, Ryan?" (kind of annoyed because his questions usually aren't grounded in reality at all) and then he said "Could you please buckle me in and shut my door?" HA! Some kids just want it all...
Here are some of the better pictures form our little photo shoot:
And here are just some from hanging out at my parents' house:
Holy spit bubbles. This kid is the spit bubble champion of the world.
This just makes me laugh. Calvin looks even chubbier than usual.
He can (kind of) sit up!
