Got a fever???

My poor Cael has been sick off and on since Wednesday 09/16/09. Call me crazy but I blame the flu shot. This is the second time he has received a flu shot and both times he became sick right afterwards:
  • 09/14 Flu shot
  • 09/16 Fever of 101
  • 09/17 Fever of 103. The doctor said ear infection
  • 09/19 Fever finally broke in the afternoon
  • 09/25 Fever of 102. The doctor said a viral infection (flu??)
  • 09/26 fever of 102-103
  • 09/27 fever of 102 in morning. This afternoon is right at 100

I have never had a flu shot and I've been fine. I want what is best for him, especially with the H1N1 but this has been ridiculous.

Cael loves his bunny ears and Batman sunglasses.



SNEAK PEEK to HALLOWEEN!!!!

Cael has been so sick he is GREEN???? Nah.. Just a dragon for Halloween.



Aaaahhh! The dragon is getting me...
He loved playing around.. destroying the basement like Godzilla.

Book Report
I did finish reading Dan Brown's latest book, The Lost Symbol. It was just as good as the others... I had heard rumors the content would be about 'the connection between the Mormons and the Masons.' But this was not the case. It is all about Masonry.. Very good book. I think this one will make for a better movie than the other two, Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code.

Cael's latest weigh in...

Yesterday Cael had his 15 month appt.. It was a couple of weeks early but that is okay. I wanted to get him in for his flu shot so they went ahead and did routine visit. The latest stats:
Weight 26 pounds 7 ounces (82 percentile)
Height 32 inches (80 percentile)
Head 19 1/2 inches (>97 percentile)
He will grow into his head! :)

Labor Day weekend and new daycare

I am sorry for the delay in creating a new post. 5 days of not working made me lazy I think. To help me relax and not think about work, I read most of the Twilight series again. I know, I know.. I am crazy. But I enjoyed reading New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn again... In 10 days. It is out of my system again so now I can concentrate on other things...
Mark and I are still trying for another bundle of joy. Maybe once Cael is completely weened it will happen. I guess we will just wait and see.
The last two weekends have been good for college football which is always nice.. got to keep our men happy! :) Go Gators, Go Blue, Go Huskers...


Cael started a new day care on 09/08/09. He and his class made fun policeman hats. He loves playing with his new friends and his teachers. As many of you know, daycares provide a sheet each day of what your child did for the day. On the first day they had commented how much Cael had enjoyed lunch. Apparently he ate his food and then helped himself to his neighbor's. :) That's my boy!
Cael is such a BIG boy. Everyone morning he watches me get ready in the bathroom. He combs his own hair....
And brushes his teeth.

On our 5 day weekend as a family we spent a lot of time just hanging out and enjoying each other. We went to the park, the mall, the fair, the children's museum, and Cael's favorite store, Wal-Mart. :)

Daddy won Cael this dinosaur at the fair. It is kind of a funny story. Those 'carny' folk are pretty slick.. Mark spent about $20.00 to throw darts at balloons to win this stuffed animal.



Mommy and Cael had some ice cream for the first time in over a year. Yummy, yummy! We had a fudge sundae.

At the fair we also found a ride we could all ride together, and that Cael could ride being less than 36inches tall. We rode one of those that spun around on a large axis but then you could make your own container go fast by spinning the wheel in the center. I was so proud of Cael, he didn't get sick! I can't wait until next year when he can ride more of the rides.
There was a fun petting zoo at the fair. Cael loved to watch us pet and feed the goats.
The big Clydesdales were beautiful!
I had to take a picture of this funny looking chicken. It is a white crested black polish pullet. Hee, hee, hee.. That made us think of Dziedze!

Cael checked out all the 4H animals.. We saw rabbits, roosters, chickens, sheep, cows, goats, ducks, geese, and hogs.
We had to sport our Gator gear for the college football opening weekend.
Cael loves to swing!
And he likes to climb all over the playground equipment, and slide down the slides.

Mark and his mini-me.

Too cute for words!!!!!

Dancing Cael

video

So I have learned that patience is needed when trying to upload videos.. I think this will work. Cael loves to dance and he loves mommy's ring tone!! Beesha (my mom), Cael and I had a blast as she would call my cell phone and we would just watch Cael dance.

Enjoy!
