Ode to my husband

You know you’ve married a good man when he offers (without even being asked) to skip the last home Utah football game of the season and take your sick child to the doctor (even though it made both of them cry) and stay home with him so you don’t have to cancel your plans.

Yep, that Hardy, he’s a keeper.

Jack is finally feeling better today. When I called the doctor Saturday to see if miserable fevers were a normal reaction to the Synegis shot she said "no" and had us bring him in so they could test for influenza. It came back negative, so did the strep test. So, we've just been waiting it out and by the amount of trouble he's been getting into this morning, I can confidently say that I think he's much better.

Limp Noodle

Jack got his first Synegis shot of the season yesterday. He was terrified and cried more than he ever had when he got it, but eventually he bounced back to his usual chipper self. Well, I think today he has had a bad reaction to the shot. He has had a fever all day and been completely lethargic. Poor little guy. He finally figures out how to walk, then we give him a shot that make him so sick he can hardly stand. What a mean mom I am.

Look who's walking!

Yesterday afternoon he finally decided to let go and now he's strutting across the room like it's no big deal. Of course he refuses to do it on demand so pretend you're not watching the video or he might sit down.

His other big tricks for the week are that he can now tell you what a lion, snake and bear say.

Good milestone's Jack!

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

Yep, in just three weeks Jack will have his first trip to Disneyland, and can I tell you, I get more excited every day! Hardy won a trip from work so we are going to be livin' it up in the Magic Kingdom. I just can't wait to see Jack's face as he takes it all in. It will definitely be a different trip trying to work around nap times and sticking to the little rides, but Aunt Gwen is coming down to join us for a day or two, and I've talked with 3 other people I know who are going to be there with their families that same week, so we should be able to get in a good Space Mountain ride or two. SO EXCITED!

I talked with Jack's pediatrician today at his well baby check about our trip. I'm a little freaked out about the plane ride but she said to keep him hydrated and spray out his nose a lot and that should help to keep him healthy on our trip. She's also going to try to get him his RSV shot before we go which would make me feel a ton better since it seems to be a good immune boost. I also finally got him his H1N1 vaccine today so that makes me feel a heck of a lot better as well.

Jack did great at his check up today. Dr. M couldn't believe how good he looks. He's 75% for height, 10% for weight, and his huge head is still in the 95%. I also had her check his sats and he was hovering around 87%. We like that. I actually just bought a little finger pulse-ox that arrived in the mail today so we could check his sats while we are out of town and just have a little piece of mind. It will be interested to see what his sats do at sea level and in the airplane.

And to answer your question Hilary, no, he still isn't walking. Stinker. Despite all my best efforts, he just won't let go.

Trick or Treat!

Jack had a fabulous Halloween. He dressed as a very handsome Superman. We trick-or-treated at daddy's work on Friday, and to a few houses in our neighborhood on Saturday, but he prefered the kids coming to our house. Every time the doorbell rang he would speed over to the door and giggle and shake with anticipation. He was pretty funny.

He then spent Sunday like every other kid out there, looking thorugh his bag of candy and trying to get me to let him eat way too much sugar.
