We've all finally gotten over an ugly flu bug. First Will and Jonathan had it, then the next day Jessica and I had it, and then yesterday Willbon got it. : / It was definately NOT fun, but thankfully we're all better now.
It's always hard for me when the kids are sick, because I don't always know what to do to help them feel better. (Especially when it's the flu, and a bowl of ice-cream doesn't help!) Well, this time around, when I was sick I just wanted to lay in the tub, so I figured maybe the kids would like that as well. They did! especially Will. I think it's amazing that even when he is sick, and hasn't had anything to eat or drink, and has been throwing up, he still has this sparkle in his eyes. He's a sweet precious boy!
Enjoy the pics.

Doesn't get much cuter!

Jonathan loves to stick out his little tongue!! I think it's so cute -- but you can judge for yourselves!

Jonathan standing up

Here are some pictures when Jonathan was standing up all by himself!

Jonathan's first steps!!

Yesterday Jonathan decided that he liked to stand all by himself. He would stand for around 10 seconds, and then reach out for me to hold him. This morning I stood him up to see if he would still do it, and after standing for a few seconds he took a step toward me and then stopped, and then another step, and then stopped and then three more!! 5 steps!! Jessica was with me, and we both clapped and cheered him on!! In less than a week Jonathan will be 11 months old. It's pretty amazing, but somehow he's managing to move those bulky thighs, and he's pretty stable!!

Pics of Will

Since the kids were getting tired of me practicing on them, I got another target -- Will!! I think we got some really great pictures. Here are some of my favorites:

My Gramma coming?

Willbon has had a one track mind for about three days now. We told him and Jessica that Grandma and Grandpa were coming to visit, and Will can't get over it. Everyday he asks me over and over again, "My Gramma Coming?" I couldn't believe how much he asked, so this morning I decided I was going to count how many times he talked about Gramma coming.
When I reached 30 times . . . and it wasn't even 9:30 am!! . . . I decided to just say -- A LOT!! And that doesn't include the 5 people he saw this morning while we were dropping Jessica off at school that he told, "My Gramma coming in 5 days!"
I guess he is very very very excited!!! Hopefully he won't drive us all crazy the next few days, but this kid sure is thinking about Gramma coming ALL day long!
We are all excited, but this time, especially Willbon! : )

Will can draw

Will has been content to scribble with crayons and pens for awhile now. Mostly he likes to draw on the carpet and walls and couches and chairs, but something happened around Valentine's day. He decided it was time to start drawing actual things instead of just scribbles. He started with a smiley-face, and then started drawing scary pumpkins (jack-o-lanterns), and then he surprised me with this octopus. It even has 8 legs!! Good job Will.

4 teeth!

Jonathan has 4 little teeth now. Two on the top and two on the bottom. They have been causing problems at night, but now that they are out we're all doing much better.
(Now on to the next two that are about to pop through!)

I was trying to get pictures of Jonathan's teeth, and he sneezed! I had to snap the picture.
I can't believe he is 10 months old already! He is getting more and more steady on his feet. He likes to do circles around our coffee table, and he loves to pull up on our french doors and look at his reflection in the glass.
