Getting better

I think we are all finally getting better. Dan and I got a stomach virus as did Jacob on top of his croup. His cough is much better and his stomach virus is much better although he still wont eat much. I can't blame him because I'm not eating as much either. His throat might still hurt too, I don't know. I think he is feeling much better overall since he is being bad again! I just lost my babysitter for tomorrow and our dog needs surgery! My sister-in-law is 37 weeks pregnant and was put on bed rest today! They think she may have pre-eclampsia and are running some test. She may be induced on monday if she doesn't go into labor sooner. she was supposed to watch Jacob for me. My other sister-in-law might watch him but since we are not completely sure if he contagious or not I don't know if she will. She has a 2 1/2 year old, my niece Sarah, and I would hate for her to get sick. I told Dan to tell her it's up to her and it's not a big deal if she can't. I have no idea what I'll do if she doesn't though since I have no one else. I originally scheduled Toby for last thursday and then canceled when Jacob got sick. I don't want to have to cancel again! Lets hope something works out. Toby has bad anxiety issues so I like to stay with him the whole time if I can. We'll see what happens. Pray for my sister-in-law. I'm sure she's nervous. She's having a little girl.

Jacob has croup. It is no fun at all. He is on an inhaler to help his coughing and breathing although it will take some time to work so for now he still sounds awful! He doesn't have a high fever which is really good. Today he can barely talk because he has lost most of his voice. Unfortunately it will take a week to get better so no church on sunday ( this really stinks because it's supposed to be his last week in the nursery before he moves up ) and no Jack on monday. I am hoping he'll be well enough for Jack to come on thursday. Jacks party is tomorrow and we can't go to that either. Jacob needs to get better before his party next saturday! I can't believe he'll be 2 in 1 week and 1 day. He is growing up so fast. I don't have any new pictures today. I have been really bad about taking pictures. When he was a baby we took pictures almost every day! Anyway, I probably only have a short time before he wakes up. He slept 13 1/2 hours last night so I am not expecting too much from his nap today but I am hopeful he'll get something so he can rest and get better.

Boucing off the walls

We went to bouncing off the walls again yesterday. Jacob had a blast. We took my sister-in-law and niece also. They had fun too. Sarah ( my niece didn't want to leave ). Here are a few photos of the kids. My sister-in-law was laughing so hard at Jacob jumping that she was crying.

Last a video of Jacob and Sarah jumping....notice how Jacob spends most of his time trying to get back up!!!

He made me cry

Today Jacob said to me " mommy, Jesus in my heart" I cried. He is so cute and is starting to really remember and somewhat understand what I say. I know that he is too young to be saved...but it feels so good to know that I am getting through to him as much as I can about God.

a little better

I'm doing better today. My friend went into labor at 25 weeks. The baby died a few hours after being born via a c-section. Keep her in your prayers still. The funeral will be next week.

Jacob is doing really well. He's talks all the time and we can understand most of what he says. We actually have conversations which is so fun. He's huge too! His 2nd birthday is coming quickly. Only 3 1/2 weeks. We're having a baseball theme party which should be fun too. Baseball park food...traditional ball park dogs, peanuts, pretzals, and pop corn. If I can find some cracker jax I might get that too.

Anyway....Dan just got back so I'm going to go get ready for bed. I'm tired. Work was crazy tonight.

For once I need some good news. We were doing great for a while all good news then bam. It's been 1 thing after another. I can not give details, but pray for my friend. No matter the outcome she needs it. And pray a small prayer for me. My faith is being tested. I feel very worn down right now and this is when I need to keep my focus on God. Thanks. I'm going to go spend some time with my #1....Jesus!

Jacob is finally better. He's been sleeping well and eating pretty good again too. I also think he grew. His pants fit differently. One pair that was perfect length is almost too short now. We are actually buying 2T for him for everything. He's always been small so this is so strange for me. I think he's finally catching up. We went to disney on ice today. Jacob was a little nervous but did have fun. He's been talking about it all day and I expect he'll still talk about it tomorrow. I wasn't sure if he would sit still the whole time but he was great. This is good because we are taking him to sesame street live in march as a birthday present. I think he'll really enjoy that as well. We also got all the stuff for his party. I just have to get the invitations out in the mail this week. I started working on them tonight but then I started to feel sick. I think I ate something bad. I'm waiting for drugs to kick in before I go to bed.
In other news Dan bought a new car. It's a project car so he still has the old one. It's also his dream car that will only be used on nice days and will not be driven to work daily. It's a triple white beetle! He's so excited about it. The guy will deliver it on the 26th. I told him " happy valentines day, happy birthday, happy anniversary and merry christmas." he was fine with that too. I guess that's it for now.

Back to Normal...whatever that is

Today we returned to our normal lives. Dan returned to work and Jacob and I spent the day at home. I started my workouts today. It was simple. I was hoping to find something on demand but of course we needed a special subscription for all of them. So I made up my own until I can get out and get a DVD. I honestly don't know what I want either. Something that will burn calories but not be to difficult. I have a quite a goal so I need to work hard. I'd like to loose 10 pounds by march. I know that's unlikely, but I am going to try. I also started getting back into spending more time with God. It's so important and I want to make that a priority in my day. Lets hope I can keep up with both. All out of town guests have left and the house is quiet. Jacob is napping and still pretty sick. This cold will not seem to go away. On saturday we are going to Disney on Ice courtesy of my sister-in-law. It should be really fun. Well I guess that's all. I'm sad for the holidays to end, but happy to get back to a normal life. We have Jacob's party to begin planning now so I guess life is never calm:)
