Jacob and Josh - the health update

Still not better! Jacob's had a high fever since Friday morning (we're going on day 3 here) that is only managed by Tylenol and Motrin. It's really heartbreaking. The funny, though? We've been giving him an endless supply of popsicles. Sugar free popsicles, left over from his run-in with the runs last week, when the nurse told me sugar could exacerbate the situation. Anyhow, we've been putting a bib on Jake when he eats them since they drip and stain. Jacob hates bibs. So it was a surprise this morning when Jacob grabbed his bib off the table, put it on (mostly) by himself, and climbed up in his booster seat. Nathan and I just looked at each other, thinking "huh?" Then Jacob looked at us and said "pop-isk-ull." Got it. He's one smart kid. Josh doesn't have a fever. He had to get in on the gastronomic fun, too. Instead of the runs, he had the opposite problem. Not fun. Our first run in with big-time infant constipation, and poor thing, I could tell he was in pain. Thankfully, things have started running smoothlly again. Whew.
