You asked for it...

I was cutting up some asparagus for dinner and Aaron kept fussing at me like he wanted it. So I handed a strand over - As you can tell by his face, I don't think he'll really cry for it again....


Stroller Buddy



Today, Aaron got to have his buddy, Asher, join him on a stroller ride. Of course, I had the added bonus of having Asher's mom, Holly, to walk and talk with also! =)

Daddy's home!

Lee was in a big 24 hour mountain bike race (that's right - 24 hours!) this weekend, so we were all very happy to have him home again. His team, which consisted of Scott Countryman, Kyle Fox (my bro), and Carlyle Naylor did a GREAT job and placed 5th in their division out of 30 teams, which was the toughest division in the race. Unfortunately, Lee had one of the worst wrecks of his life in his very 1st lap (see picture below to catch a very small glimpse of the injury), but being the studly competitor that he is, he toughed it out and continued riding the entire 24 hours. They have tons of stories and came home exhausted, but had a good time. I am definitely glad to have him home and so is Aaron, who continues to be in recovery from his sickness. He managed to throw up his antibiotic all weekend and we finally got him started on a new one that I hope that he will keep down better.... Anyway, hopefully our poor boy has a chance to get better after all this drama....

Visit to Great Grandma Fox

My parents, Tanya and Brynn (my sister in law and Aaron's cousin) and Aaron and I decided to take a quick trip to Palm Springs, California, to visit my Grandma. She turned 94 on Valentine's Day and had not met Aaron and Brynn yet so it was a special time!



Quick update on Aaron's health - He was still pretty sick when we got back from our trip. A trip to the doctor on Friday revealed an ear infection and what the doctor called "Bronchial-itus". So we got some meds and unfortunately Aaron had a bad reaction to the antiobiotic which started an intense throw-up session that afternoon. So now we have to make sure he has a VERY full tummy when we give it to him. So it's been a rough couple of days, but I think we are getting a handle on things! Thanks for all of your prayers for him!

Ha ha!

I thought this was so funny tonight.... Aaron fell asleep on me and Lee dished me up some ice cream. While I was in the middle of taking a bite, Aaron popped his head up right into my spoon. Hence,,,, the chocolate sauce on his head....

Poor Buddy...

This little boy is very sad because he's a little sickie.... You can be glad that this picture doesn't show the snot streams pouring out of his nose, or better yet, the snot bubbles when he breathes out. =) Anyway, his fever is at least gone now and now we are just down to the runny nose and nasty cough. He's actually being pretty tough about it and in pretty good spirits under the circumstances. ...
It's definitely weird for me to have to actually miss out on things and stay home with him - the positive side of this is that it forces us to slow down and enjoy some time just hanging out together. Usually Sunday nights are spent hanging out with the college kids at church, but Aaron and I just hung out and watched Extreme Makeover Home Edition together. Well, I watched it, he slept on me through all the excitement.

Aaron's Bible

For Christmas, Grandma Fox got Aaron a little hardback book that focuses on stories from the Bible about Jesus. Lee and I try to read it to Aaron as often as we can (though we aren't sure how much of it really processes at this point!) as we know our most important job as Aaron's parents is to help him know Jesus! After we read today and Aaron was "playing" with the book, I decided to snap a picture to remind me about the importance of this particular issue. I can get so caught up in all the other "tasks" of managing my house and the constant busy-ness that life brings - I hope that this job of showing Aaron Jesus always remains our number one priority!!!
