Yard Work and a Little Fever

We spent the entire weekend working around the house and the yard, getting our house ready to go on the market. Although we don't know where we will be going yet, we are hoping to get a jumpstart on the selling process. It has been a lot of work to get the house and yard ready, especially after our big snowstorms. Clint worked like crazy all weekend on the yard and it finally looks really good again. Charlie and I weren't too much help (I know that's shocking to hear. I mean, how could taking pictures inside the new planters NOT be helpful??), but we did spend some quality time outside with "Dat." Charlie was fascinated with eating leaves and grass--I do not understand why this kid won't touch a piece of pear or carrot on his high chair tray, but eats as many pieces of leaves and grass as he can get away with.

On Sunday morning, poor little Charlie came down with a virus (making us even less helpful :). [We think his little make-out session with Baby Blythe over the weekend was the culprit, as they both got sick afterwards. Baby mono maybe?? :)] He ran a pretty high fever all day Sunday and seemed really sick--he was so pale and lethargic that I was kind of worried about him. He did not want to play or eat, but was such a sweet little cuddler--I definitely treasured the opportunity to get some time holding him and loving on him. Today he seemed to be feeling better, but is definitely not back to his old self yet. His fever was down and he was more active, but he was grumpy! Today was a little more trying because he did not want to cuddle, and really didn't seem to want to do anything. We spent a lot of time reading books and walking around the house and the yard inspecting things together. :) I am hoping he is all better tomorrow!
