We got two little orphan lambs in the weekend - they're so cute and Caelan absolutely LOVES them. He's not too keen on holding the bottle when they're feeding for some reason though. He's always cuddling, kissing and trying to pick them up - though we're enforcing a no picking up the lambs rule. They need to be fed four times a day and Caelan loves coming out to watch them feed, I'm sure soon enough he'll enjoy holding the bottles. I think he doesn't like them pushing at it when he's holding it.

We saw other people and another kid last night! Poor Caelan must have thought that he was the only kid left in the world after so long of not seeing anyone! hehehe It's been AGES due to all this sickness. It was sooooo good!!! Caelan and George had great fun playing together - yay :)

Well here's a photo of Caelan with Met (white ewe lamb) and Code (black and white ram).

Hand, foot and mouth disease sucks!

Well when Caelan got home last night, after having fun at Grandma and Grandad's, I was pretty concerned about the state of his rash. It had turned from tiny red raised dots to bigger angry looking blisters. I instantly thought it must be chicken pox - even though I hadn't seen a case of chicken pox recently (if ever actually!) but knew that the first red dots then turned into fluid filled blister like things. So first thing this morning called the Doctor cause that was a pretty drastic change in the rash, though I was pretty sure I knew what it was, but best have it confirmed by a real doctor HEHE. But I was wrong he has a pretty severe case of hand, foot and mouth disease (which apparently is often confused with chicken pox), the worst the doctor has seen and the horrid part is, there's nothing you can do about it. So wait and let it run it's course and hope we don't go crazy in the meantime - it's highly contagious so we can't go anywhere or visit anyone. Stinko. Might call Playgroup to let them know cause I'm pretty certain he must have caught it off someone there last week, he hasn't been around any other kids, so it must be from there. They might wanna tell others, or not, I dunno what's the story with this kind of thing, but I'll tell them anyway just to be safe. So he's got a cold, ear infection and hand, foot and mouth disease - poor kid.

Roll on summer!

Poor Caelan's sick again, had to take him to the Doctor yesterday cause he'd had a really bad day and night before with a fever, horrible green snot clogging him up, being really, really miserable and having a horrible rash all over his body. Poor little boy! He has a horrid cold, viral infection, red dotty rash, diarrhea and a nasty ear infection (for a freakin' change!!). Though it seems like the worst of it was on Monday and Monday night (not much sleeping for the Clark household that night), yesterday he was so much happier. YAY! Hopefully all of this doesn't last too long now. He'll be contaigous for a while so we're gonna go mad cooped up in the house together - we'll have to invent some new games and do many sundances, cause it'll suck if we can't go outside.

Aside from being sick he's doing well, his talking is improving all the time. It's amazing. He has a pretty large vocabularly now which is growing every day nearly. It's so cool. Let's see if I can remember all the words he says - up, down, plane, light, more, bye, ta-ta, hello, hi, ouch, oh-oo, hot, Mama, Daddy, yummy, yucky, yum, ball, poo-poo, nappy, yeah... I'm sure there are more but I can't remember them.

We had a lovely fathers day - had a huge delicious breakfast on the deck in the sun together which was cool. Then hung out for the rest of the day having fun together. YAY! Caelan wore his new Daddy Rocks t-shirt which was super cute. Here are some pics from fathers day.
