It has been a long stretch at the Gallagher-Gray house. Both Aaron and Owen came down with a nasty stomach flu - vomiting, diarrhea. Owen lost nearly 5 pounds in 5 days. The doc recommended we stay in for a full week after Owen was symptom free for 3 days to give his body time to recover. During this time, we were supposed to encourage "restful activities," well, it is very hard to get a little boy to be still once he starts feeling better! We did our best with novel toys, arts n crafts, and Thomas the Tank Engine.
Owen playing with magnets
He was calling his creations Christmas ornaments!
Arts N Crafts with Mommy's punches
Aaron got desperate and busted out the Lionel O scale Thomas the Tank Engine Train set. Owen hasn't stopped talking about it!
