found out that Seth is too jaundiced and is going to need an extended
stay in a baby tanning bed. He is doing well for being a bit premature
and we are hopeful that we can take him home tomorrow. Jessi is
feeling better and is getting up and around and has her appetite back.
Thanks to everyone for the food and for helping out with Ryan and the
beasties. You are the best.

Last week we received an email from Rainbow Playsets, a company in Olathe that specializes in really nice playsets for kids. The email remarked that they had recently decided to liquidate some of their last years demo models and that we might be able to pick up the very last one for a great discount. We'd already been up there several times to let Ryan play on the sets and we've been checking other manufacturers and stores for quite some time. They had the exact set we were looking for and it was in perfect shape for a deep discount.
Monday I received a call from Rainbow that a slot had opened up for installation the next day if I wanted to jump on it. HECK YEAH!
They showed up in the morning and by the end of Ryan's nap we were playing like crazy. Sliding and swinging we had a blast.
They even threw in a chalkboard with chalk and an eraser for free.
Ryan just loves trains. He plays with them, he wants to watch them on TV, he points and cries out every time he sees one when we are driving around. He can't fall asleep without his train and he wakes up every morning with a train and a train car (which he calls a "back") in his little almost 2 year old hands.
We have a nice train table and lots of train track for him to play with but the one thing we didn't have was a train table with all of the pieces glued down. Soooo yesterday I spent several hours in secret working through Ryan's naps and after he went to bed to put together what Brio believes is the perfect train track configuration. We were only missing one piece if you can believe that!
The morning arrived and the glue was set, Jessi and I brought him downstairs. Ryan took one look at the table, waved goodbye to both of us, and dove head first into Thomas the Trainland. We will miss you Ryan, have fun!
