A trip to the peds doctor Friday afternoon confirmed that our little Grant had bronchiolitis. He had been coughing, running a fever for 3 days, not eating well and was pretty lethargic...not his normal happy little self. But...we have given him 5 breathing treatments and the little guy is making a very quick turn-around. Tonight...he was playing and smiling. YEAH...it's great to have our little happy guy back.

"What's the longest road in the world?"
"Where's the smallest town?"
"What color is there the most of in the world?"
"What color is there the 2nd most of?"
"Can you be allergic to shirts?"
"How many trees are there in the world?"
"How many kinds of cats are there?"
"Where's the smallest house? Where's the biggest house"?
"Where does Ft. Wayne stop?"
"How many games are there in the world?"
"What CD has the most songs on it?"
"How many books are there?"
"What's the most popular book?"
So...if you have the answer to any of the above and can help me out...I think my 5 year old son would appreciate a real answer as opposed to: "I have no idea Seth" or "We'll have to look that one up on the computer" Except.. I did answer the Bible for the last one. I love that he is always thinking..but really, the questions he comes up with astound me. As you can see... most of them are centered around biggest/most...everything is a competition! The thing is...he gets so frustrated with me when I don't know the answers...he says: "Just tell me" ( I guess I should cherish these moments when he thinks I do know everything) I have a feeling...he's got one of those "thinking" brains...nothing is going to get past him! Let's start praying now he uses it all for good!

--weighed in at 20lb 2oz at the doctor
--took his first medicine (fever & cough) (besides gas drops in the first few months)
--loves to snuggle, snuggle, snuggle when not feeling well
--still has an appetite during his sickness

--is eating table food...okay, maybe he's just pushing it around, playing with it in his mouth and then spitting it out into his bib/highchair. But...he can pick it up and get it in his mouth...but the texture startles him and almost instantly, his tongue shoots it out. I do think he is getting some of it though. He's trying and interested, so that's good. His favorites so far are macaroni and cheese, broccoli and bread.
--still puts away 3 jars of food at a sitting...even after munching on puffs, cheerios and table food
--kicks his feet like a wild man when he sees mommy after I've been gone...or when he doesn't want to be in bed
--has had a cough...for like 2.5 weeks now...doesn't seem to bother him
--is rolling EVERYWHERE...I can't trust him to stay put anymore. He knows how to get from sitting onto his back/tummy and then he's off! He loves to be under couches!
--is putting weight on his arms...testing them for crawling, I hope!
--went swimming at the Y for the 2nd time
--is quickly out growing his 12 month one piece winter outfits...spring better be here soon
--went furniture shopping w/ mom & dad...and was AWESOME!
--loves pulling off his socks, especially in the carseat
--played with his cousins at a family birthday celebration
--has almost got the "how big is Grant" trick...he does it about 1/2 the time!

--LOVES LOVES LOVES his puffs
--tried "table" food for the first time...some peas. I thought he was doing well with them....until I picked him up and saw the pile on his seat. Overall...though, he did well grabbing them and "munching" on them.
--will push him arm through a shirt
--spent an evening w/ Nana & Oompa while mommy & daddy had date night
--overall...is sleeping well through the night (knock on wood)
--LOVES LOVES LOVES paper...he gets so mad when you take it away
--is just a happy, very content little kid who gets complimented on his behavior everytime he stays with someone (Childwatch at Y, church nursery, MOPS)

It was Dr. Suess day at school the other day...Seth was "Cat in the Hat" while his buddy went as Thing 1!
And now...Seth is going through another one of his obsessions: Dr. Suess books! It's off to the library we go tomorrow, because the 4 we own aren't sufficient!
