Pretty as a picture

"We're too hot to play frisbee, Dad!"

Practicing his tiptoeing (Ms. Deb would be so proud!)

"Ummm. . .where's the waterpark? It's too hot!"

Love those tater tots!

I finally dumped the camera from his last days in the hospital and also have some pics since we've been home. I thought I'd throw them on here since it's been a few days since you've seen a cute pic!

His appetite is coming back big time! Thank the Lord! He's still a bit pickier and needs a lot of attention at mealtimes, but it is better! The wet diaper output is increasing as well-another good sign. Since we've had a bit of a break in the weather, he's found himself at the playground and outside for at least an hour or two a day. The downside is that now the pool water is colder and he isn't as into it anymore. I guess heart kids just don't like to be cold! Yesterday we packed up the bike trailer and headed to Dames park to BBQ for dinner. That was a fun field trip. Celeste did great riding her bike all the way there and back. His favorite part was the mesquite BBQ Krunchers potato chips. . .no surprise there!

We are planning on a fun holiday weekend. Tomorrow night we'll stay up late to watch the fireworks in O'Fallon and then Saturday AM the parade goes practically right in front of our house. After it is over, we'll go ride carnival rides and get faces painted, etc. and then head back for naps and to rest. After dinner we'll probably head up to the festival for more fun and fireworks again. Grandma and Grandpa are at the ready though, in case the weather doesn't stay this nice and Connie needs a break from the action. We'll be sure to post pics after the weekend too!
