Despite how it may seem, Henry is difficult to photograph because he is constantly on the move. I was surprised by how many photos I have of the children eating, perhaps because they're held captive by their food and it's an easy shot. It was nice to capture this one of him chilaxing.
We just got a membership to the Discovery Children's Museum. It admits eight for free. The children love all the interactive exhibits. However they spent equal time inside as they did outside, playing on the landscaping and running around the plaza.
Maggie and Henry both love watching the Star Wars movies. Henry now runs around picking up sticks, pens or anything that resembles a light saber, usually he gathers two so that he can offer you one for the epic battle. He is surprisingly good at gently swinging and spinning things around and the sound effects are incredible. So far nobody has been seriously hurt, so it is all fun and games.
When the doctor told me Henry would need to have breathing treatments for two months, I thought it would be the death of me. In the past it has turned into him screaming for 10-15 minutes. He really hates to be restrained but it was near impossible to do treatments without restraining him. That is a lot of moving parts and I only have one free hand to accomplish it. But this time around I decided after a few minutes of struggling, to give him back the reins and some magical happened. He held his mask for a full ten minutes. And as the weeks have past he has come to really like his breathing treatments. It is an awful feeling to restrain your child for the greater good of medicine, so I can't express what it means to see him enjoying it.
I love Maggie's drawings. She loves to draw. She will draw for hours at a time. I often find her drawing things with her arms waving around in the air, silently conducting an orchestral of pictures in her mind. It is very fun to watch her explaining things by drawing pictures in the air. Kids can be so imaginative and their pictures can give you a small glimpse of what is going on inside their minds.
I am posting this for Chad. I know you are about to leave BYU and start your traahhvaallls through the lone and dreary wilderness, so I thought I'd give you a new profile pic. Women love a guy holding a baby, especially when it's not his.
We are slowly licking up the odds and ends of the Holiday sweets. Paige helped make cake pops while they were here but left us with the entire batch. I usually am not afraid to eat too much sugar but we definitely over did it this season.
