Dear Case

Dear Case,

This stretch of getting up at 5am has been driving me crazy. We are exhausted. Why aren't you?You spilling red soda in my bed is not high on the list of things I appreciate today either. Neither is the fact that I had to reach my hand in the toilet and grab out a little tupperware of cat urine as you were flushing it. Why you even had access to cat pee is another story for another day. But, when you dance around the living room to the Weather Channel music with your milk in one hand and your Bible in the other, I can overlook all the little things that you're doing to make me nuts today. I love you.

February 17, 2010

Case thought 6am was a good time to get up this morning. We watched some Wubbzy, drank milk, ate some Cheerios and watched Yo Gabba Gabba. He played a little while I did laundry. Then we went downstairs and apparently he forgot who he was and went a little crazy. First he was standing in his highchair-big no no. Got him down and spanked him. Next thing I know he's in the kitchen spitting his milk all over the floor. Needless to say that didn't go over real well either. We cleaned up the floor and swept it and then came back upstairs. He decided he wanted to go under the covers and pester Maddy. I really thought she was going to bite him. Every time I would look under the blanket he'd laugh and pull it back down. Next thing I know he's sound asleep at 10:45. Hmm...wonder how long he'll sleep.

Phrases he's saying:
Take baaa- take bath
good jooo- good job
looka dat- look at that

He also thinks he's getting a goldfish.

Playing with Steiny

Crud Update

Keith just took Case to the pediatrician. He has developed a sinus infection from his cold. He's getting amoxicillin and a decongestant. Hopefully he'll start feeling better pretty quick. And yes, this was the same pediatrician who not even 4 months ago, told us children his age don't get sinus infections. I'm going to the doctor after lunch. Hope I get meds too. Ready to crawl in a hole. :)

I have strep and sinus infection.

It's already February?!

I guess it's been a good start to 2010. Not quite what we'd envisioned but it's going well. :)

Case is on day 8 of a nasty cold that he decided to share with me. Even though he got sick first, I seem to be getting well first. With his past history of antibiotic nightmares, we are trying desparately to avoid the doctor. So far he hasn't run any fever but his cough is pretty nasty. We're going to try and hold out and hope he starts perking up in another few days. I read that the common cold last 7-10 days with the cough lingering a few weeks. We'll see. We don't want any unnecessary antibiotics and we dont want to go spend 2 hours at our pediatrician's getting exposed to more junk.

In other news, he keeps us entertained. It's 11:50 PM and he just came running into our room laughing and saying "mom mom mom." Our success at sleeping in his bed came crashing down along with this cold. He's saying new words every day. His favorite phrase is "take bath, take bath." He's also been saying "minnow minnow minnow" but we aren't sure what he means. We haven't been talking about minnows, the fish, at our house. Maybe he means Muno, the guy from Yo Gabba Gabba. He's really enjoying books right now and rearranging the kitchen chairs. He just started bringing us a diaper and laying in the floor waiting for us to change him.

Guess I'll go see if we can get him back to sleep.
