The growing boys

Both boys have been relatively healthy this winter, and about a week ago,they both came down with NASTY colds. Sunday Ethan seemed to be getting progressively worse as the night went on, so i made a call to the "on call" nurse... She asked me a series of questions...how fast was he breathing, his temp (which was 103.8 under his armpit) and a raspy hacking cough...She advised us to bring him to the ER right away.. So we took him in at 10 pm, called in re-enforcements (mom dy and darse bills sister). They were so sweet to come to the rescue that late at night! Anyways, he ended up with a discharge diagnosis viral pneumonia and the start of an ear infection. He is on the mend now, but the last few days have been long and i am begining to feel like a hermit, and wondering if winter will never end! Not to be too negetive, we are very blessed to be as healthy as we have been.
Levi is rolling around like crazy, i am going to have to start looking into buying a gate for the stairway! This week we started giving him banana's and applesauce. He did not like it. Here are some pics of our growing boys!
