When mom is sick... who cares!

So I have come to realize that it is very much true that if mom is sick... no one cares. I have always heard that, but never thought it to be true. I stayed home from work for 2 days with this stinkin bronchitis garbage... which I am actually feeling a little bit better now. At least the fever is gone. Come to find out that Jon has the same thing. So instead of me resting last night when he got home from work... I was mom, wife, & doctor. He has had a fever all morning and it just won't break... and you know what they say about sick men. (It is true... they are babies) lol- It doesn't help that my sweet precious JT has decided that he only wants MOM the past few days and will not just sit and play AT ALL!!!!! Please pray for us because I can't keep up with this much longer. We need the "get better train" to come to our house and fast.

A day at the doctor.

JT had his 9 month well child check today. He weighed in at 17 lbs 13 oz. and is 17 1/4'' tall. So the doctor comes in and gets a worried look on his face and said, "Are these measurements from the last appt?" I told him no they were from today and he than asked if JT's birthmother was a small person. I remember her 18 month old at the hospital the day we took JT home. He was pretty little so I just figured JT would probably on the smaller side. Anyway... ready for the percentages? (drumroll) 8% in weight and 13% in heighth. If he continues this way we will probably have a guard and not a center on the basketball court. :) lol - They are making an appointment with a surgeon to have his umbilical hernia looked at. I don't know if they will do surgery right away or wait until he is older, but one thing is for sure... it is not getting any smaller. It grows with him. In other news I haven't been feeling very good the last few days... cough, fever, all that jazz. I asked the Dr. to look at me while we were there and I have bronchitis!!! Where does that come from? I am on an antibiotic now so I hope I will start feeling better soon. So that is enough for today I will still work on getting Easter pics on, but I am drained and am going to bed. NIGHT :)

What do you get...

when you add one sleep(running) husband and a couch in the way?

      Jon's accident 003

*** A fractured wrist and bruised knee. Poor guy doesn't even remember what happened. All I know is that his knee knocked the couch away from the wall and he was on the ground when I finally got to him. Anyway, Easter pictures are coming soon. I have just felt lazy lately. :)

Book Worm...

JT loves books. It isn't too often that he will sit with me and just read (only because he won't sit still very often), but he will look at them by himself. Last night I gave him this cute book about Harvey the bee (Seagull Book find) and he was making all sorts of sounds like he was reading the book to me. He is such a character!!! He just gets more fun each and every day. Oh and by the way... new cold started today. We just can't kick this stupid bug. I am so fed up with snot! :(

First of all... Amanda got kicked off on American Idol. That makes me very very happy... and my wonderful husband got the water heater fixed. The hot water is back on in our house. This calls for a celebration. Time for a hot bath! :)

So tell me...

how is your day supposed to go when you wake up to NO HOT WATER!!!

So proud!

So I am sure you are all sick of me blogging, but I had a breakthrough tonight. :) After working all day on getting my photoshop to work correctly... I finally completed one page. It isn't fancy, but I absolutely LOVE it! I think I am going to have a blast with this. Now I just need to start downloading paper. So if any of you have great websites  I would love to have them. I can totally see how this could get addicting. (Now to convince Jon that I should stay home and not work anymore)  ;) hehehe


4 teeth!!!!

JT 165

JT wanted to show everyone his teeth that have come in. He definitely knows how to use them too. Notice the gap. It is going to be so stinkin cute!!!

Stuck in scrapbooking he!! :)


So I am so frustrated right now. I think I finally got the blog thing figured out a little bit. I got so mad that I finally just did it and I guess it is ok. Nothing special. Hopefully I will get better. The header really frustrates me and I finally just gave up on that. I also have been trying to do a normal page in photoshop and I get the background and a picture on and can not figure out the stupid things to add. For some reason it just won't work. I have been doing this all night and I am DONE! You know you are getting old when all this new stuff confuses ya. :)

My baby is 9 months old!!!

JT 032 

Time is flying by way too fast. I swear it was yesterday that JT would just lay and cuddle with me. That is not the case anymore. He is way too independent to need "mom" :) He now has 4 teeth, climbs stairs, and will stand by himself for up to 15 seconds. (I know not that long, but we are proud of him) His laugh is contagious, his smile lights up the whole room, and even on his worst of worst days (usually just when a tooth is coming in) he is the sweetest baby. We have been so lucky to have this very happy baby in our lives. Jon said he is seriously scared for the next one to come. Probably won't be as lucky! ;) hehe So speaking of next one... Jon and I attended orientation for LDS adoption today. We feel like it is time to start again. If we could have our own we probably wouldn't be starting yet, but who knows how long it will take to be chosen again. We are excited... the people are so friendly and helpful. We will keep everyone informed as things move along. Megan watched JT for us and when I went to pick him up he got the biggest smile and gave me a hug and kiss. That is why I love being a mom!!! I have the best husband and the cutest and happiest baby in the world. :) Hope everyone has a fun weekend.

While daddys away...

Mommy and JT will play... hahaha not really we are stuck at home and JT has yet another cold. Jon has been gone to drill all weekend and we are really missing him. I seriously don't know what I am going to do if he ever get deployed. Probably just lay down and cry. :( Oh well... hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Funny Video

So tonight I was showing Jon a video on youtube about people after they have been on meth. It is crazy how they change. If you want to watch it just go to youtube and type in drugs. I think it is called faces on meth or something. Anyway... back to what I want to say :) lol I came across this funny video. Probably one of the funniest things I have seen in a long long time. Just wanted to share with everyone. Oh and it is almost Friday! Yeah!!!! I am so done with work and ready for the weekend. We get to go to the temple to see my cousin seal their baby girl to them and then I will be going on Sunday to see her be blessed. They got her a few weeks before JT was born and it has been fun to see her grow up too. Anyway... Jon will be at drill all weekend so I might as well leave town and have some fun with my parents. :)

Enjoy the video.
