New T-shirt and birds

Gramma Momma sent this cute T-shirt, it arrived on Saturday. :)

I had a hard time getting these pictures because Deeder wanted to see each the instant I took it–he’s absolutely in love with the shirt and fascinated by the camera. He can now say Camera and it’s just so sweet. He says, “Mra”

He’s been doing much better these past couple of days on managing melt downs, and I’m so thankful for it! This morning when I wouldn’t let him have the camera he cried a little but was willingly redirected to playing with his blocks. Excuse the messy bedroom! We actually do clean up quite a bit, it’s just that making a mess is so easy–and by his judgement so much fun! And why not? Toys are meant for playing with.

And birds…

Darren says they’re mourning doves. I’d never seen one before. They came to our yard just yesterday and have been making themselves at home–bravely visiting the bird feeder and walking along the parking lot pavement. Deeder tries catching them like a little kid at the beach chasing after seagulls.
They have the most beautiful call, you can’t hear them in this little clip because I took it from inside the house…perhaps I’ll do better another day.

In other news, both Deeder and I seem to have come down with a cold. Part of life I guess. He’s congested and sneezing, the occasional cough too. My eyes are all runny (yick) and I have a sore throat. Fun stuff. Weird that we’d get sick just as warmer weather is finally coming.
It’s noon now and both my boys are sleeping. Darren got home from work three hours late and Deeder’s extra tired because his stuffy nose kept him up last night.
I have an easy lunch planned–I’ll get that together as soon as Darren’s up. For now I think I’ll go lay down for a few minutes.

I hope all of you are having a good Monday so far. :)

    what a cute shirt! I’m sorry to hear you guys have got colds, hope you’re feeling back to normal again soon. Funny you say that about getting colds as the weather turns warmer… that always seems to happen to me too! I go out with a ton of layers on, then get too hot easily (my ‘thermostat’ is wonky), take them off, too cold… back on they go… I’m sure it’s because of that!

    I’m so glad Diederick likes the shirt. :)
    Sorry to hear about the colds, though. We’re still battling sickness here, too. Deb, Reb and Lyd were all home sick today. All three girls are feeling well enough now (they tell me) to go to school tomorrow. That’s a good thing, because the statewide assessments begin tomorrow.
    Did you notice that our blogs were “off the air” for quite a while this morning? :( I guess something was wrong at Dreamhost.
