Celebrating the Flu!!

Ok I know this is weird but I got the flu last week Tuesday. I spent all night throwing up. I am not sick anymore only I can't seem to get my appetite back. I still feel nautious all the time, especially in the morning. It has already been a week. My body is just not bouncing back from this.

When I found out I was pregnant with Samuel, we thought I had the flu. Only it kept coming back every morning. So yesterday I really started panicking. How can I possibly add another baby right now. I made Zach go buy a pregnancy test.

Thank God the test was negative. So I took a picture and we are celebrating a not pregnant test with almost as much enthusiasm as we celebrated our pregnant tests with Ellie and Samuel.

Awsome Bibs

So is anyone else tired of washing so many bibs. My sister in-law found this great bib at Walmart. It washes off with a washcloth. It is vinyl. It has snaps to create a pocket and you can roll it up and snap in place to take with you. I was going through 3 bibs a day at times. I have been using this same bib all day every day for a month and a half now. I have had other pocket bibs but all of them were kind of stiff so they would not fit in highchair. Or the pocket wasn't stiff at all so it didn't catch anything.

Silver the Salmon

Once upon a time there was a beautiful Salmon named Silver. He lived in the ocean near Seku. On one early Saturday morning in September there were really big waves, some swells nearing 10 ft tall. Silver didn't think that he would be in any danger as the fishermen were all getting sea sick. But one particular fisherman named Zach, had not been fishing for almost 5 year. He was bound and determined to catch a fish. Even though he was not feeling well he persisted until Silver got a little to curious and took a nibble on his line. Silver and Zach struggled back and forth for a long time until the determined fisher won the fight.
Zach spent the next 5 days trying to calm his tummy from those 10 ft swells but he could proudly present his treasure to his family.

Zach the fisherman and his worthy opponent Silver.

Silver's shocked expression when he found out we intended to eat him.
Silver begged Samuel to changer our minds. Samuel begged Silver to changer our minds. Neither succeeded.
Samuel wanted to give Silver a farewell kiss. (this is as close as he got by the way). Samuel promised Silver that he would not eat him, and he kept that promise much to our dismay.

Our brave fisherman turned out to be a man of many talents. He manned that BBQ like a pro preparing us a savory meal.

Farewell our little fishy friend.
