The big kids are playing a card game in the living room and Wilder is chasing the boxer, Diego, around while holding onto his blue puppy. Life is good. And life is very active here at the King household. Wilder fits right in with the other six kids and I have no worries as he galavants around the house with them -as long as he stays out of the toilets. Wesley (3) and Timmy (2) have embraced Wilder (19 months) as a younger brother and cohort, though it comes with a price. Crystal asked, "Does (Wilder) bite?" No, I said. "It's a helpful skill." George babysat Wilder and the crew yesterday while Crystal and I enjoyed some grown up girl time. When we came home George reported that everything went fine, but Timmy bit Wilder on the foot. "Guess he hasn't learned the kick reflex yet," he said, "don't know how he let Tim get his foot."
It's a riot over here. Always action, always playtime, always lots of love. I am so glad that Wilder can play with his cousins -and they are all having so much fun!
We leave this afternoon for Alaska, I am hoping Wilder will sleep for at least half the flight. Fingers crossed!
I love my sister and her family so much. What an absolute joy and how very precious to get to have this time together.
Note on Pregnancy: I got the blood test results back from my OB/GYN who I visited on Wednesday. They said my hormone levels looked wonderful and I was 4 to 5 weeks along (as I had calculated.) I have my first ultrasound the Wednesday after we return to Texas -so in about 2 1/2 weeks I'll have my first pictures to share of Honey Bun.
