We were supposed to have this crazy busy weekend; I had been looking forward to it all week. Two toddler parties for Liam, and then I was hosting a blessingway for one of my very best friends. Well surprise surprise, our whole family came down with stomach flu. Yes, we in fact are sick again. It was absolutely awful. I felt so sad watching my poor boys go through it, and then was terrified for myself when I felt the symptoms coming on. Fortunately, Conor didn't get it until about 12 hours after me, so he was able to take care of the boys while I was out. It broke my heart to hear Finn crying for me half the night and not being capable of caring for him one bit.
However, pity party is over. Today was the first day of Spring, and we were all feeling just good enough to get outside in the sunshine. 70 degree weather was the perfect start to this season! My tulips are blooming, my perennials growing back, and my garlic has even sprouted. I can't wait to tackle a bunch of yard work next weekend. And conveniently enough, my mom will be in town to help us get started on the garden per usual!
We picnic'd. Rode bikes, scooters, wiggle cars. Had a dance party. And tossed around the football. Liam has quite the arm on him already! However, catching...not so much. He still seems to think the ball is going to attack him every. single. time. We're working on it. Finn is Liam's biggest fan. He crawls after him as fast as possible (a bear crawl since he doesn't like his knees on the sidewalk), and claps for him nonstop. He'll also wave enthusiastically at every person & car going by, but usually with a good 5 second delay.
A good start to Spring indeed!
However, I'm worried Finn is allergic to grass (grumble, grumble)... Anyone else's baby have this issue? I would love any suggestions on how to help him!
