Party, Park, & Pinky Toe

I think Ben is still adjusting to his new class.  He's been-ahem-tempermental lately.

I think it's getting better, though.  He hasn't cried at drop off this week.

Saturday morning I took Avery to a birthday party.  Avery said it was "the best" and "she better invite me again next year."

One of her three possible suitors was there.  She is certain she's going to marry Brody, Coen, or possibly Colton.  Colton follows her around, Brody draws her pictures all the time, but Coen's dad runs a golf course, so I think I know where Rob's vote will lie.  Brody and Coen's moms also say their boys say they're going to marry Avery.  Of course we tell Avery there are more fish in the sea, and she might very well meet someone better when she is much older, or she might not want to get married at all, but she's not listening.

The kids stayed with Mimi Saturday night while Rob and I went out for sushi.  Sunday was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed some time at the park.

Avery seems to like dance more each week and has been excited to go lately.

Monday brought a 50 degree temperature drop.  I think we're really looking forward to spring and warmer weather.  We've been making do inside, though.  Baths serve as a form of evening entertainment.

Ben woke up crying two times last night, and this morning he wouldn't bear any weight on his left foot.  He screamed when we tried to put him down, and when we checked out his toes, his pinkie toe was red and a little swollen.
Clearly needs a pedi

It was nothing we would have noticed had he not been so upset.  So we gave him some ibuprofen and made an appt with the doctor.  Within 20 minutes he was up and running around like normal.  I took him to the appointment anyway, just to have it checked and nothing is broken.  She said he may have stubbed it or got it caught on something, but otherwise he is fine.

We are putting the $20 copay on his tab.
