Doo Wah Diddy Diddy . . .

A great big brother.
We've been a little worried about Mark and Dax. They've seen mom about 6 total hours during the last week, and most of those she was in a hospital johnny laying flat on her back. Today was Mark's birthday, and thankfully some people stepped up to the plate. He got his favorite breakfast-- pancakes from grandma. My sister made a cool Star Wars cake with action figures on it. Then, to top the evening off, Mark's cousins took him to see some fireworks. Mark had a great day despite the circumstances, and we're really grateful for those who helped make it happen.

Dax, on the other hand is terrified of fireworks. I have to hold him and cover both ears with my hands until he falls asleep. Then the next two weeks are horrifying for him. He starts to finally get over it about the time the 24th rolls around and we start all over again.
Dax was so worried when Seth started to cry.

So, for a special treat for Dax he got to ride in Dad's car (it's just a Hyundai, but to him it's a rocketship) and take mom back to the hospital tonight. Then he got to hold baby Seth "all by himself" (not really). We asked what song he'd like to sing to Seth and he chose Doo Wah Diddy Diddy by Manfred Mann. It was so cute to hear him sing to his baby brother. By the time we got the video camera out, we only got the last time through. Here's the video:



  1. So cute! Hope things go well for you all tomorrow. We are praying for you.

  2. Such a cute video!! I am so glad that your boys can still go see Seth.
