JUST for Ally

I know, it had been too long, and I have some people complaining. (No Ally, you aren't the only one!) It's funny how NOBODY leaves comments, but I get complaint emails when I don't blog! Hmmm...

I have been extremely busy for the past week. I thought that things would die down once school was over for Jaydon, but they haven't. I have something going on every weekend through the beginning of July - yes, EVERY weekend!
I have been working at Andi's, picking Mark up, and then coming home to 2 hungry children. I make dinner and then by the time Jeremy gets home, it's time to go to sleep and start all over again the next day. SUCH the exciting life that I lead, isn't it?

Jaydon got to play at 2 different neighbor's houses this weekend. One has a huge water slide, and the other has a Slip & Slide. He enjoyed Saturday at one house, and Monday at the other. It was SO hot out, so the water was a nice treat.
...and all I can say about the Colonial is: HOT, HOT, HOT! (Not the men, the temperature!) Next time, I'll ONLY go if it's in March or before...which it NEVER is! It was cool to see the golfers - yes, I like golf, but it was just too daggum hot. I don't know how those guys (the golfers) do it in long pants every weekend. I'd like to know the stats on how many of them wind up with skin diseases or skin cancer. Four days out in the sun for 9 months out of the year CANNOT be good for ya!

Speech for Jaydon went extremely well today. She "tested" him on his 3-month goals that we set 3-months ago, and he passed with flying colors. He is answering all "WH" questions, and he is demonstrating the ability to tell a story, and give clues for objects. The only "WH" questions that he is having a little trouble with are the "When" questions, so we will continue to work on those. I'm proud of the little booger! No Target today because I ordered 2 toys for him online earlier this week - Mack (the truck from CARS) and Douglas. Yes, he ALWAYS wins!
One of his funnies today at speech was so innocent... The speech teachers asks, "What would you do if you broke your arm?" Jaydon says, "Go to the arm store and get a new one." She & I just looked at each other and laughed. She explained that there wasn't an arm store, and more than likely you would have to go to the doctor to get a cast...but then she told me that she had to give him credit for his answer because he did answer with an "appropriate" answer. The other one that made us laugh was, "What would you do if you came across a snake on the street?" Jaydon says, "I would pick it up and take it to the zoo." Again, we laughed. Appropriate answer - YES...but most people would say that they would turn around and run the other way. He is so innocent!

My poor little Jacoby is hurting SO badly. His hand remains in his mouth 24/7, he is drooly, and EXTREMELY fussy!!! We took him to the doctor this morning because I was tired of the crying and I know he's in pain. Five doses of Tylenol per day is just too much. (Yes, I'm about to tell the doc to "shove it" and give him Motrin. I'm supposed to wait until he's 6-months old for that, but I know he weighs enough!) His cough is congested, and it just sounds nasty. Guess what? NOTHING wrong with him! Lungs are CLEAR as day (thank GOD!) and everything else checked out. So another wasted trip to the doctor because I'm paranoid. I was paranoid after my friend Andrea took her daughter to the doctor and felt obligated to do the same. Addyson (her daughter) had nothing wrong with her either but I didn't want to be the "bad mom".
Jacoby had RSV back in February, and had to go to the ER at Cook Children's. We NEVER EVER visited the ER with Jaydon (still haven't) and it was a weird feeling. Jaydon & Jacoby are SUCH different children in so many ways except for their weight & length! Anyway, The words of a doctor there stick in my mind... "Children born in Texas between December and March are prone to sicknesses and bad lungs." Dam* doctor - why did he have to say that? Knock on wood that Jacoby has been healthy - minus the RSV - but those words are just ringing in my ears to this day.

Alright, Jeremy should be home shortly. It's 6:15 and we are eating hot dogs for dinner. I sacrificed making a good dinner JUST to blog!

Talk to y'all later...

Oh, we sure did miss your blog! I was about to start complaining too! I don't have much room to talk, but you're worse! Go Jaydon...his answers sound perfect to me. Too funny that you felt you had to take Jacoby too...what happened to our "Angelic" babies? Oh, I know, they're school aged children now!! ha!

LOVE the title. ha Sounds like Addy and Jacoby have the same thing going on! Teething, I guess. It's a tough thing for these little tiny babies to have to deal with. Try teething tablets and tylenol. Teething tablets are organic..not sure why they work but they always did for Peyton. A friend turned me on to them. The are tiny tablets that dissolve as soon as they hit their mouth. Target has them. Sounds like you frequent there. ha ally!
