We’ve Got Colds!

March 31st, 2006

It seems like Patrick had just gotten over his flu bug when, lo and behold, he caught a cold! On Tuesday I noticed he was congested and had a cough. Wednesday his cough was worse and he had a runny nose, and yesterday the runny nose was worse. Then, last night I began sniffling and sneezing, and I had a terrible sore throat. I ended up not getting very much sleep last night. I hate having a cold when I’m pregnant! This is the third one I’ve had since December, and by far the worst. It seems like I am always catching whatever sickness Patrick has, and Patrick catches whatever is going around at church. Andrew never catches anything! I think this is partially due to my immune system being low on account of the pregnancy, at least that’s what I read somewhere. I really hope I don’t have too many more sick days before August, because it’s miserable to be sick when you’re pregnant. Getting sick and being able to take no medication is one of the worst parts of pregnancy, right next to being told that one must cut down their chocolate comsumption due to the caffeine content!

What Will We Do?

March 27th, 2006

Yesterday I was working in the nursery during Sunday School, and we had 6 toddlers that were all within a few months of Patrick’s age, and one 5 month old little boy. Well, I was picking up the toddlers a lot, and Patrick didn’t seem to care. We had several very unhappy children! The baby was suppose to be trying to take a nap in the crib room. He didn’t want to go down, so after I while I went in and got him. I sat down on the rocking chair and began trying to rock him to sleep. Patrick saw this and IMMEDIATELY got very upset that his mommy had a little baby. He burst into tears and ran away. I was able to coax him into coming back to me and he buried his head on my lap and continued to cry and wimper. I have never seen him so upset about me holding other children before, but then again, I am usually holding toddlers and not young babies.

What are we going to do when the new baby comes?

Patrick is Growing Up- He Got His Hair Cut!

March 23rd, 2006

Patrick is rapidly becoming such a big boy. With new words like “No”, “Thank You”, “Meow” (his word for Cat), “Good”, and of course, his favorite, “BALL”, he’s becoming less and less of a baby! He’s getting much smarter, too. He has a little hand sign that he uses to show when he’s done eating, he is becoming more clever when playing with his learning toys (actually sorting them or stacking them rather than banging them!), and he’s even learned how to use the TV remote and play computer games with Oma and Dada. He’s growing up so fast!!!

One of the things that Andrew and I noticed recently is that his hair, which has only been cut in the back, was starting to get into his eyes and he needed his first real hair cut. Well, today I had some time to waste where I had to be out of the house while my oven was cleaning itself, and so I took him to a special hair salon that deals only with children. I was a little afraid to try to tackle cutting his hair myself until I had seen how a professional does it! Well, we brought him to Kids Cuts, he got to sit in the special little Police Car seat and watch Disney while the lady worked quickly to get it his hair cut before he could fuss and complain. She was quick!!! And he was squiggly too. That must be the hardest hair cutting job ever! When she was done, he looked like a totally different kid. He looks much more grown up now. It’s amazing. You’ll have to see for yourself!
