Well, I (Jocelyn) have been wiped out since late Friday night with a stomach bug. And, Eric came down with a horrible cold at the same time. So, Marshall had a short vacation to Gram and Bampa's house starting on Saturday night. I'm sure to Marshall, Gram and Bampa's must seem like an all-inclusive resort featuring treats like dinner out at The Ram, around the clock attention, and all-you-can-eat ice cream. (Well, Gram says the ice cream part isn't true . . . but Marshall asked today if he could call Gram just to tell her that he misses the ice cream, so we are a little suspicious!)
In the past few months, Marshall has become more and more of a daredevil, although he looks pretty innocent in the picture I posted today! He he made full use of his new adventure skills by deciding to climb the "cat tower" during his visit to Gram and Bampa's. However, the climbing didn't make it too far before it ended with a crash into the cats' water bowl. And, Marshall is happy to tell you just how he got that nice "boo-boo" below his lower lip. We think the cats are in for trouble with Marshall around . . . He has also told us several times (with great delight) about how he chased one cat and made her mad, so that she hissed at him. The best part is him telling the story using animated facial expressions and making claws with his hands. Maybe we can get that one on video soon!
On another note - Eliza has officially learned how to roll from her back to her tummy (About as exciting as it gets when you are four months old)!
And, Eric and I are both, very thankfully, on the mend :) . . .
