Speaking of sickness...

We've had our share of germs in this house lately it seems. Not only is Roxy sick, last week I battled the flu (while flying solo I might add... that should just not be allowed, it truly is cruel and unusual punishment). This week Spencer's been spiking fevers in the 102 - 103 range, after two weeks of fighting congestions. So there's been a whole lot of "i*pad time" in this house as of late. While Spencer won't sit in front of the TV, or really play independently, he will happily sit and "play i*pad." Luckily there are some fabulous games and educational programs on there for his age, which we've been making great use of. Here's a glimpse of what our days looked like over the past week...

{"Hmmm... what shall I play?"}

ipad-games-4

{"Matching."}

ipad-games-5

{"Where did I see that one again?"}

ipad-games-6

{"I think it was here...."}

ipad-games-7

{"I was right Mama!"}

ipad-games-9

{"Moving on to a new game..."}

ipad-games-10

{"Maybe I'll just watch a video..."}

ipad-games-11 ipad-games-2

{"One minute Mama, I'm almost done."}

{"I love this thing!"}

There was one day where we actually both felt well enough to head outside for a little while...

[We "dozed" the dirt...]

outside-2

[Complete with sound effects.]

outside-3

[We scootered.]

outside-4

[And almost left it to get run over by Daddy.]

outside-5

{"Oops! Better put you back scooter."}

This video is actually from a couple weeks months ago, but I just never got around to sharing it. It just cracks me up to see him scoot around, barely able to see over the handlebars.

And one last cute shot... from before all the germs invaded!
