Things & Stuff

Just some quick updates and random shareworthy info...

A's temp went back up to 101.1 right before bedtime on Thursday night. Here we go again, I thought, but after a dose of Tylenol and an obscenely early bedtime, he slept it off and didn't wake up until 7:30am (with a temp of 98.8). I, of course, didn't sleep at all that night. Instead, I lay awake in bed fretting that Alex was going to wake me up. Yeah, I'm kind of neurotic like that. Anyway, except for a lingering cough and a negligible amount of vomit, he seems to be doing fine. I was really dreading the flu, but it looks like we may have sidestepped that land mine...

In other news, Alex has decided to join the circus sideshow, not as the Lizard Boy, but as a contortionist. He can fit his whole body into a coffee can. Seriously, it's amazing.

Besides convincing him to show me the coffee can trick, I discovered another way to keep him from getting into things around the house. Emily, you may want to invest in one of these. They really do the trick.

He really gets into character when he's in there. Here's his ferocious lion impression. Or maybe he's a monkey. I don't know, all of his impressions are kind of the same...

Thanks to Bella for loaning out her crate. We Bella-sat last night cuz the Primms were going to Branson. A loves Bella, especially since Bella lets him pet her, whereas Alex's own weenie dog won't come within ten feet of his outstretched arms.

When they came to pick Bella up, the Primms hung out and kept me company for a while. Not that Alex isn't good company. But it is nice to talk to someone in words comprised of more than one syllable. Oliver decided that Alex's lap looked comfy and had himself a seat. He promptly rethought that move when Alex started pinching his neckskin and tried to eat his shirt.

He also started a new face this week. I'm thinking it has something to do with the excess boogers rattling around in his head these days, and the fact that he hasn't figured out how to pick them yet.

And here are a couple more. I can't really remember what inspired these two...

That pretty much covers it as far as Alex updates go. Auntie L got into town tonight, so I'm sure there'll be plenty more blogworthy updates in the near future. The update on Alex's daddy is that he is a major stud who has been opening several cans of "you know what" in the Moot Court Competition. He and his partner have handily won their first two rounds and will compete again tomorrow morning, tomorrow afternoon, and again tomorrow night if they continue to win. Not that we had any doubt, but we are very proud, nonetheless...

It is funny that you should post pictures of your cute little "caged animal". Yesterday, Quinn actually found herself in Mia's cage for the 1st time. Of course, Mia's cage is more like a 3bedroom apartment compared to Bella's cage. Has Quinn been sneaking down to Fayetteville and swapping spit with Alex? Because she too has a fever. Coincidence, I think not.
