With kids every day drags along and seems like the other, but the year flies by. That’s exactly how it seems. I love spending my time with Max, though. I love watching him learn…seeing him pick up the same toy for the thousandth time and be amazed at what it does. It’s funny and frustrating sometimes at how something he laughs at today can scare him tomorrow.
He loves playing with the pans…but when he bangs them on the floor he starts crying and crawls to me! Silly boy!
The day before yesterday I did like always and after he indicated that he was hungry I started repeating ‘hungry mama’ while I got him ready to eat. He started saying the same syllables in the same tone as me…with ‘nana’ at the end! I think he’s gearing up to talk soon!
He said ‘uh-oh’ yesterday…I’d heard him say it before, but last night he repeated it several times to Tj and Gmom.
Last Saturday night he had a really bad cold…his temp got up to 101.7. I was worried about him even though I knew I shouldn’t be. The only other time he’s had a fever it wasn’t as high so I wasn’t worried, even though he was totally lethargic. He did nothing that day but lay on me and sleep, but because the numbers weren’t high I didn’t worry. This time he was a little fussy but he played and moved around all day and yet I worried about the numbers. I guess it’s because my greatest fear with a little baby is what’s out of my control or what I don’t know how to handle. We gave him some Tylenol and his fever responded…all is well in the end. He only had fever that one night.
Katie and Craig were gonna come over Sat night but Maddy fell and passed out! Those kids never seem to get a break! Craig says he thinks Maddy held her breath so long that she blacked out because she seems fine now. I was surprised that they didn’t even take her to the doctor. We’re hoping to get together this coming weekend…I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Tj has a few more minutes on his nap…and Max has been napping forever! We’re almost done getting ready for the folks…they should be arriving around 4am. I hope they have a quick and good trip.
