Here are a couple pics from the weekend =)
This past week was so incredibly overwhelming i feel like could sleep for a week just to make up for it! We had gone to Chris's parents over the weekend which was great (they took the kids and Chris and i went on date =) and both mornings Annie came and got Kiah as soon as she got up and let me sleep in a little) Then Monday morning came................. Zeke started crying when he woke up which is unusual then he called to me from his room asking for a wipe.. uh oh... He had thrown up ALL OVER himself & his bed, beyond gross... Well we got that all cleaned up and aside from being cranky from being thrown in the shower as soon as he got up he seemed okay for the rest of the day, so i tried to play catch-up with house work and caring for a cranky babe who has another tooth coming in. THEN TUES MORNING CAME.... He woke up okay but kept telling me his tummy hurt, i kept a very close eye on him and he ran into the bathroom and got sick ( I don't use the d word ever if you follow..) and it went on like that all day long.. and twice he had accidents but thank God i had left a pull-up in him just in case.. the next two days were just a repeat and it wasn't until Friday that he actually started to feel better... it was awful, i felt so bad for the poor kiddo! Thank goodness now it's a new week and everyone is healthy again, we have just been taking it very easy this week just to make sure! Thurs though will be the start of another fun weekend! Zeke's grandparents are coming to pick him up and take him downstate until Sunday (that will be the longest he has EVER been away from us!) and Chris will be gone Thurs night thru Sunday night working an Emmaus walk. I will be all alone! well kinda.. I will still have Ki (i really didn't have the energy or the time to get THAT much milk ready!) and Friday night my mom is coming over to stay with me and then we are headed over to Gaylord Saturday morning to do a little shopping and then over to the church to help out. I am really looking forward to the weekend though, it will be more alone time than i am used to and i think i may just sleep the whole time if i can!

I have no recollection at the moment of what we did last week... That should just go to show you what it was like! We did take the hike in the woods (where we took the pics =) and that was awesome. The boys and i have gone out there a few times now, i just pack Ki in the carrier and we walk back to the winter sports park which is pretty vacant at this time of year and Zeke runs and plays in the forts (photos to come) we find and we all get some fresh air and good exercise.
The not so great start of this week started with Ki having a fever for two days which i just attributed to teething (his 2nd bottom tooth is so close to cutting through) but once the fever broke on the third day i noticed his head was a little blotchy but i thought that was just from him yelling for his breakfast, a little while later during a diaper change i noticed that his belly had a rash all over it, but i wasn't sure what it was and we headed out for one of our walks, when we got back and i changed his diaper again before nap time i noticed it was much much worse (which i now realize was from the heat of the carrier) so i called the doc and had to take him in later that day. The doc said first it was hives and after talking for a while told me it was from a virus that causes 1. a high fever for a couple days and 2. a rash all over the body once the fever breaks... So that was our week, he is doing much better now and sleeping in his own bed again (THANK GOD!) and everyone is happy and healthy.
Our big exciting news for the week, ZEKE IS POTTY TRAINED!! We have been seriously working on it for a few weeks now and he has finally got it down, we have had two accidents in the past two weeks, including all night, which i think is pretty amazing! I am so proud and so so so happy! He still wears pull-ups at night but that is it! YAY ZEKE!
Okay this post is getting a little long but those were the two big things of the week, I'll post again after the weekend and share all our Holiday fun. Happy Easter everyone, I look forward to celebrating the resurrection of our Lord with those of you who are close!
