ok, we are all happy & healthy again! whew!

6am Easter basket opening & chocolate eating!
Later on Easter, brunch at Nana & Boppa's house.

He found his basket! Lots of goodies!

Cy & Uncle Tim


Cy's bday party. His birthday isn't until May 9th. He will turn three. Next week his dad will be out of town, his grandparents will be in town, his "best" friend Campbell will have a baby sister being delivered and a few other friends will be on vacation so we threw him a little early bday party at the good ole bowling alley. Good thing we did it inside too. It was snow/raining that day!

Nice, calm kids before cupcakes!

Chocolate cupcakes with bowling balls/pins on them

Reier, Ella & Nora

Cy & Reier. Silliness starting. Cupcakes starting to kick in.

Nora & Ella - cupcakes have fully taken effect.

Ella tackling Cy with Campbell's help. What bowling?

Opening gifts. The Playdough hamburger maker! Cy is estatic!

Later that night, making burgers at home.

Jackson, wishing the burgers were real and he was eating one.

Our 7am indoor gardening project this morning. Another rainy day!

No pictures this week. One week ago Cy woke up before sunrise puking in his bed. That was followed by several days of chills, diarrhea, etc. I thought he ate a dead animal. Then Patrick got it & had to miss work for the first time ever. Then I got it. BRUTAL.

I told my friend Joanna last night that I feel like I've been on vacation all week. Not in the "relaxing" sense but in the sense that I have pretty much had no contact with the outside world in a week. Time stopped. Everything stopped except the gentle flushing of the toilet which could be heard far too often.

Hopefully we will all be cleaned up, good smelling, nicely dressed and with healthy appetites by Easter.

Anyone want to come over and share a lollipop? :)
I promise not to ever complain about silly little pregnancy symptoms again. (well, at least for like a week!)

spring (uterus) cleaning

Cy and his friend Marin at a nature center. Marin's dad is Patrick's "play date" friend. They meet and do occasional adventures with the little ones. Too funny! Seriously CUTE Little Baby Emmer

Hi! don't have much time to post. We are on our way out the door to Uptown to hand over the garage door opener and keys to the condo. We forgot to bring them to today's closing! oops! But yeah - everything went great this week!!!! Closed on the condo this morning with no surprises. We are officially a one-house family! YAY!!! We had an ultrasound yesterday & the baby looks great. Still measuring a few days ahead. The blood in the baby's bowels is no longer detectable which was a HUGE sigh of relief! My bleed appears to be flattening & breaking down & on it's way out!! It had decreased in volume. Oh the ups and downs of the Baby Emmer Rollercoaster! Well, this is a major "up" and I walked out of there with a big fat smile on my face! The doctor seemed pretty confident that everything is going to turn out just fine since the bleed is decreasing and not increasing! Big news too -- he gave me hope that we will be able to go to the cottage sometime early this summer!! I am going to continue to "take it easy" til the next ultrasound which is in 6 weeks just to be on the safe side. At that point I will know for sure if a trip to the cottage would be ok!
And finally, just want to say that Cy is kicking booty and taking names in the potty department. He is all about the undies these days. He wears a diaper when he sleeps and THAT IS IT!!! Most of the time the diaper is dry when he wakes up but I am not quite ready to take that leap yet! Yay Cy! Next week: 24 weeks = viability!!
