More rainy day week pics

Here are some more pictures from our fun puddle adventure last week...
Nap hair...
The kid truly is spoiled by his sisters, and well, everyone else for that matter...
We took a break for a PB&J lunch...
And then walked down the sckreet to the big puddle in the middle of the road. And yes, it is some nasty water in that puddle, which is why I only let the kiddos take one sip from it when they get thirsty.

I have no idea what the Absters is doing here, but good nelly, that kiddo is amazingly strong!
Emma found a worm, whom she loved and petted and pulled and twirled until it wouldn't wiggle anymore and pooped out something that strongly resembled what worm guts should probably look like. She just so happens to be every creepy crawly's worst nightmare.
We had a good weekend in Macclenny for our church meeting, but we are pretty confident that Nathan was so overly exhausted yesterday that he became acidotic in return. His neuro said at the last visit that he believed that Nathan was acidotic more than we thought but his body had learned to compensate with the high lactic acid levels, etc (which is relatively common in mito kids). Obviously, his body was so exahusted yesterday that he couldn't compensate anymore and he started vomitting.

After resting for most of the afternoon yesterday and getting some fluids in him, he seemed to perk up quite a bit. He has only been awake for a couple of hours all day today (It's 4:30, and he is on his third long nap), so he is definitely trying to restore his energy levels. After seeing him crash so fast yesterday without much warning (we knew he was tired, but didn't realize that he was so much worst off than he looked), we realized that we are going to have to come up with a new plan on how far we push him during our church meetings. Poor little dude.

Sorry to break it to ya...but with Ab's skills, she's aspiring to become a break dancer in the future! She's REALLY good!

Emma and her love for worms, fish, anything that crawls or is slimy...haha! She's hilarious!

I'm so upset that I missed the meeting last weekend. My dad has gone ON AND ON AND ON about your kiddos. Your girls know exactly where Brother Hugh's soft spot is! (I've taught them well!)

Hope Nate gets some rest after a tiresome meeting! He'll have many more to come down the road! We love you guys!

I'm so glad he's better! He has the cutest smile and personality now! I love him and the way he communicates is precious!

I remember the water puddles as a child. They were my favorite thing! Glad to see some mom's still let their kids really play and drink from the puddles! hehe
Looks like a gymnast in the family with your oldest.
And I loved worms, still do actually. But, I feed them to our chickens!!!
