3 a.m. illnesses and other exciting happenings

We're excited that Seth is eating like a trencherman, as evidenced by this picture! Thank you for praying; we praise God for what He's done! Seth has gained about a pound since I first posted a couple weeks ago. Turns out he LOVES chicken on the bone! All the kids do. Too bad it's not cheap like rice and beans. ;) 
The kids after church last Sunday. I love how Marcie (with Aunt Natalie's beautiful handmade headband) is checking on Seth. Always the little mother, that Marcie. She and Gracie were sitting together on the couch today reading books (and wearing the same dress as in this picture, incidentally - they are VERY insistent on wearing "pretty clothes" every day now). Gracie started humming/singing, and Marcie started imitating her, tone for tone. That made Gracie laugh, so she kept singing and Marcie kept mimicking her, which made both of them laugh and was very sweet to watch. I missed the photo op, however, because I was changing Will's diaper. 

Speaking of which, Will was the "exciting" 3 a.m. illness (and 10 p.m., and 10:30 p.m., and 11:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. and finally 6 a.m. illness). That poor child kept throwing up even when there was nothing left to throw up. It reminded me of poor Gavin's experience during our medevac last month due to the piece of meat stuck in his esophagus. :( Miserable. So please pray no one else gets it, especially since Gavin is now gone until tomorrow late afternoon/evening. He's flying Bible translators around, so that's exciting for him! I'm always happy when he can do what he loves. I just hope and pray I don't have a night like last night. Too "exciting" (and exhausting) for my taste! :)

Yet another group picture thanks to Aunt Debbie, with most of the kids'  clothes thanks to the Starlings!

Marcie, Will, Gracie. These kids have definitely learned how to pose, haven't they??
Will was obviously feeling fine when this picture was taken. 

Gracie wearing her traveling harness/backpack. The kids are really into them again right now.
She's wearing it again as I type this, sitting on my lap.
