The Mic-Key button is OUT!

Upon picking Seth up out of his crib today I noticed his little feeding tube button lying on the mattress. His little hole into his tummy had already closed up quite a bit, so I knew there was no chance of reinserting it. If it's been out longer than four hours it has to be surgically replaced, which of course Seth wouldn't qualify for since he doesn't use it for food anymore. So we taped some gauze on it, per the doctor's orders, and it's closing up more all day long. 

The kids are getting more and more smart and deliberate in what they do, so we're having to decide what to do about (1) throwing food, (2) screaming (for fun - they make a mighty chorus!) (3) biting (as always), and (4) laughing disobedience - e.g., "Give that to Mommy," at which point they run away! Since they aren't quite yet 18 months old adjusted age, it's hard to know how much to react, distract, time-out, etc. . . please pray for wisdom for us! And for patience and diligence and peace. It's exhausting. But the kids are super fun most of the time and cute all the time!

David. It's hard to terrify people with your mighty axe when your pants keep falling down.
