I know I am so behind on blogging. I will be uploading quite a few posts that I have been working on for weeks... but am just now getting to upload pictures and finish. I promise birthday post is coming.

For now... I am going to spend my Friday night with my amazing husband! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Love, Erika

Sickness and Labor Day

Porter contracted hand, foot and mouth disease (just a virus) at the museum. Not that I expect him to never get sick... but whoa! For this being his first "BIG" sickness I have to say we all managed pretty well. Except for getting Jackson sick... so sorry! We had to cancel our weekend plans to go to Montgomery to spend a few days with my brother, sister in law, and their kiddos and we hung around the house and went to the lake for a night. It was a much needed lazy weekend for all of us after having a sick baby for 10 days.

See his little sores on his chin.

He sure does make a cute patient, doesn't he?

Hide and seek anyone???

Porter loves to play hide a seek. It it one of his favorite things to do right now. He crawls in his closet, we close the doors and hide, and he will pop out and say "Boo". And then we pop out of our hiding spots and say "boo". He laughs and we do it again. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures or videos of that because the cameras distract him and he won't do it anymore.

However, I do have a couple of pictures from my camera phone of him hiding in one of the kitchen cabinets. Pretty hilarious. When I turned around he looked at me like "can she see me?"

We need out of the house!

After being locked away for 2 weeks we had to get out of the house. I figured the safest place to go was the zoo. He couldn't put his mouth on anything and we would be in the fresh air. It was the perfect day for it too. High of about 85! My mom was able to meet us and enjoy the zoo with us. Which was wonderful.

I just love a good picture!

Watching the penguins!

Loves the coy fish
