SO exciting!



This is what happens when I don’t rush to get Trevy up the minute I hear a post nap peep outta him…

Every single thing he can reach winds up tossed into the middle of the floor.

Okay so that wasn’t really exciting…


But the next one is!

Trevy stacked four blocks on top of each other!!!


If you have or care for a special needs child…you know that’s SO exciting!

Also, exciting with a bittersweet twang.  Our mutt doggie dug up a baby bunny nest in our yard.  The kids were beyond themselves with excitement.  Clearly we need to spend more time with nature.  We worked really hard to reunite the bunnies with their mommy…but she never came back.  Jonathan rolled his eyes when I declared it a miracle all four survived the night without her.  I’m a sap.  Smile   Anyway…a local volunteer came and picked them up.  She’s successfully nursed newborn bunnies until they were able to thrive in the wild.  The best part is…she promised we can go visit them until they’re released!



And last up on the “that’s SO exciting” list…

It was supposed to be date night.  But turned out to be ER night. 



Toby vs. Log



I’m not sure how the log is doing.  But Tobes has 12 stitches, a black & swollen left eye, and a mild concussion. Soooooooo…

  1. Oh my, you did have quite an exciting week! Your poor little guy looks miserable. I hope he is feeling better. Thank you for sharing. The bunnies are absolutely darling!

  2. We were all in love with those lil' bunny rabbits! TOO cute!

    And Tobes is healing up nicely. Still moving slower than normal...but that's not such a bad thing. :)
