Replacing fevers with smiles

As you can tell from these pictures I took last night at bedtime, Alex is feeling better.The last picture I took as I walked in to lay him back down, its what we do every night. He pulls up, then cries when he cant see to get down, so we go in and help him, he goes from crying to making this sweet smile in a matter of seconds, as soon as he sees us he smiles. I guess this could lead to a potential problem in the future, but we are so glad he is pulling up to things, and we don't pick him up and play, or even cuddle, we just lay him back down.
With lots of sleep, and extra water at night Alex made a complete turn around. No more fever, no more vomit, no more, well he still is a little grumpy, but I think that is the tooth coming in the right side of his mouth, the drool and chewing on his finger tells me that.
My second born will be turning 5, next Sunday. I cant believe it, I remember the day he was born so clearly, like it was yesterday, but that's for another post.
I'm not sure how I got away with not reporting to you how my doctor appointment went last week. The heartbeat was in the 150's, and everything continues to look good as far as I am concerned. Ive gained more weight than I should have at this point, but that's how this pregnant girl rolls.
The weather has been so nice, I can taste spring. I'm ready to get out of the house! Take Alex on his first bike ride, and go to the park. This week will bring colder weather, but it will come soon! So back to The regular things of the week, well, no! Now I get to start packing boxes! What fun!
