i played so hard on saturday that i fell asleep on the floor. i napped for over an hour this way until my hand it a toy that plays music. i just woke up and continued playing, right where i left off. mommy laughed so hard.

i grabbed the spoon during breakfast and got oatmeal EVERYWHERE. it was all in my hair. i had to have another bath.

well, it's been a crazy week. after 5 different meds we think Jordan's on his way to feeling better.

Recap of the week--

1. Last Saturday Jordan woke in the middle of the night with a terrible hoarse cough...the "croup". Monday I took him to the doc for congestion/cough/generally feeling yucky. He got a pretty strong steroid for his congestion/wheezing and cough syrup.

2. He jumped out of my arms Monday afternoon while I was trying to put him in a toy and hit his head on the floor (carpet in his room...THANK GOODNESS). Needless to say it freaked us both out, I cried more than he did.

3. He started acting strange and I didn't know if it was the meds or his fall. Got him checked out on Tuesday. By Thursday he was no better. Acting zombie like (and for all who know know this isn't Jordan!!)

4. Friday took him to see his regular doctor, and she was awesome. He has a bad sinus infection and wheezing because he's congested and his coughs arent strong enough to knock out the congestion. We're now on albuterol and amoxil.

What a week! After sleepless nights and a few days with no smiles from our little guy, I must say that today is a new day and he's on the road to feeling better. I missed my happy boy this week!

Here are some pics from last night...he stayed with a babysitter while Asah and I took a much needed break and went to a Hibachi steakhouse for dinner! As you can see, the smiles are back and while he's still wheezing pretty bad..he's doing much better!

for you, amy!

here's a pic of us on the mission trip. the reason i avoid this blog is i'd like to be about 15 lbs lighter! jordan and i plan on jogging as soon as it cools off here. it's absolutely oppressive with the heat and humidity! SO ready for some cooler weather so that mommy and jordan can try out the jogging stroller.
anyway, until you go!
