Yesterday was a fun day. The funniest part for Marie was when she kept trying to feed me one of her fruit snacks and I kept refusing. (They are gross!) She laughed and laughed as I moved her hand away each time!

Fussy Boy

Poor Brian has not been feeling well all day. It was one of those days where he would sleep for like 10-20 minutes and then wake up crying. He didn’t want to eat, didn’t want to sleep unless I was walking around holding him (which is ok, but I can only do it for so long) and didn’t want to sit in his bucket. Finally after dinner, he fell asleep in my lap as Marie and I watched Sesame street. Then he woke up again and had a BATH which he LOVES and now he feels much better. Cooing and gurgling and …. well… now he’s fussing again but I think it’s just because he made a big stinky diaper and it woke him up. Can’t blame him!

love your neighbor

Last time we went to the little park down the street, Marie was singing the veggie tales song “love your neighbor” as she was swinging. We went to that park tonight before dinner and there was a little boy there with his dad. The dad just sat on his blanket as the little boy bounced up to us, so I asked if he wanted to swing and he said yes so I helped him up (he was maybe 3) and pushed him and Marie for like 20 minutes. I guess I look non-threatening. The kiddies had fun.

No thyroid problems…

I’m feeling bad that I never followed up on my weblog post “here.”: It turns out that Brian has only a benign condition resulting in low thryoid binding globulin levels. This causes the thyroid readings to come out low. The best description I found was “on this page:”:

bq. Most of the thyroid hormones in the blood are attached to a protein called thyroid binding globulin (TBG). If there is an excess or deficiency of this protein it alters the T4 or T3 measurement but does not affect the action of the hormone. If a patient appears to have normal thyroid function, but an unexplained high or low T4, or T3, it may be due to an increase or decrease of TBG.

So, the bottom line is, there is no problem! Hooray!
