I no longer feel nauseous. I just have a very annoying nose/congestion thing going on. Lots of sneezing and blowing. 😦 I talked with the triage nurse today and she said there is nothing she can do, but since I don’t have a fever she didn’t think it was the flu. She recommended saline nose drops and increased fluids. Oh goodie!

We are officially leaving for our trip on Friday. That is crazy soon and I have to admit that I am a bit stressed out and no where near ready to be gone for OVER.A.MONTH! That’s just crazy making!

Aidan decided to wake up this morning at 5:30 and chirp like a baby bird in his crib for an hour before Dad-Oh crowbarred himself out of bed and got him up. I tried to get him back to sleep numerous times but that wasn’t on his “to do” list. Needless to say by the time 10 am play group rolled around he was in NO mood to play nicely with his friends. He was a needy, heap of a toddler that melted at my feet each time I tried to set him down. We cut play group short, I went to work, Dad-Oh fed the big guy lunch and then he was out like a light. He WILL sleep past 6:30 tomorrow!

Off to watch Idol Hollywood week with Dad-Oh, and the Kleen-X box (for the snot, not because I’m gonna cry!) I’m a crier but I’m not that bad!

I would just like to give a little shout out to Dad-Oh–City League Basketball Champions! Whoo-Hoo! All that victorious rebounding, intense defense and floor burns didn’t even earn him a tee shirt! Cheap skates! The team will more than likely be in the paper tomorrow night. So stay tuned! 😛 Congrats, Honey! Of course you’re always a winner in my book! 😉

First lets talk about Aidan’s attempt to wake up for the day at 4:30 am! Yep, no typo I meant to type all three of those god awful early numbers! The little stinker started chirping like a little bird just before 4:30. I went in to his room and tried to lay him back down and he popped back up like a little rocket. So, I got him out of the crib, changed his pamper, and rocked him for awhile in the rocking chair. He was WIDE awake entire time. I must have dosed off about ten times because it seemed like every few minutes my body would tremble itself awake again. After about 20 minutes I put the baby bird back in his crib and again he popped back up. I left him alone to chirp it out until he began to fuss. Ten or so minutes later he started crying, so I got up one final time fetched him his binkie, laid him down and went back to bed. That was the last I heard from him until……drum roll please…..wait for it….wait……are ya ready?

8:10 am! I woke up a few times around 7, wondering if I should check on him because this was soooo far out of the ordinary that he had to have stopped breathing or escaped and went downstairs to watch hours and hours of uninterrupted Backyardigans. Either way at this point I was in such a state of euphoria that I didn’t care! 😛

So we are hoping to implement this into the “this is when normal people wake up” routine! Pray for us!

Tonight Aidan and I went to Ella’s house for a play date. She is so stinkin’ cute! Of course he was only interested in teaching her his bad habits.

Like crawling under her crib, a skill he learned from his Dad-Oh!

See Ya

What are you Doing?!

They had a blast chasing each other in and out of a cardboard box. Goes to show fancy light up toys aren’t always the biggest hit! I love how both of their pampers and peeking out their back sides! 😛
