I still can't log in on Mikaela's journal, but at least Bob-Bob can stay updated on his progress. You know... when he learns to read and all =)

Bobs is having fun being two - and keeping me on my toes at all times. He's getting into picture frames and "DDDs" (DVDs) and LOVES playing with his Matchbox cars that Daddy has hooked him on. We finished 8 days of erythromycin - with no real improvement on the rash. So today Mama ran all over creation trying to get his prescription of augmentin filled. Or, as far as he's concerned, the cherry stuff didn't work... but now we're trying banana =) I don't know if he was just plumb worn out or if this stuff is bothering his tummy, but he was very lovey and huggy and, well, calm at bedtime tonight. I enjoyed all the extra hugs, but I hope it wasn't at his expense.

He has been entertained by many of my friends from college over the last week - as well as some of their children. He's having a blast! He's also been enjoying some of my old childhood toys that we've uncovered in the basement this past week. He doesn't know it yet, but I found MY old Matchbox cars, too... as well as wooden blocks and some bathtub toys and my old Pooh Bear that I've been searching for every trip here since I was pregnant with him. I'm so excited to see my kids play with things that I loved as a child. I also found my old nursery rhyme book - another treasure I've been searching for each time we've come to Chicago. I was sure it had been lost in a flood in my Busia's basement by this time - uncovering it in a box of old books was such a treat!

All the fun aside, though, he's really missing his Daddy. He acts out each night at prayer time and bed time - and he gets all pouty when I suggest calling Daddy. I'm looking forward to our family being reunited (temporarily) - hopefully this weekend.
