Ok, I really am just a pitiful blogger. I admit it. I have such good intentions of writing a cute post, along with great pictures, on a regular basis. Life just gets in the way, and before I know it, it's been almost a month since I've posted anything. Perhaps I have a New Year's resolution after all! Well, to catch up a little, here are a few thoughts from lately, and an update from my last post..
- Santa came through for the boys, big time. Reed got the Nintendo DS that he dreamed of, even though I had no intentions of getting it for him. Yeah for Nanny Judy! And Miles... remember that off-the-wall request for a toy robot, that I had never heard before he sat on Santa's lap? Without knowing he had asked for one, his Uncle Nick bought him a cool robot for Christmas. Score!
- I took Miles to the doctor this morning. He has been vomiting since yesterday at 4 a.m. Even though I was pretty positive it was only the same virus that has been circling our church, I wanted to be sure he wasn't getting dehydrated, since he hadn't been able to keep anything down in over 24 hrs. Well, surprise to me: he has strep. Again. No sore throat, but strep nonetheless. I remember getting strep throat pretty often as a teenager, and I recall a throat that felt like razor blades. So, it seems both of my boys have unfortunately inherited my susceptibility to strep, since Reed had it several times in 2007 as well. Anyway, Reed started complaining a little bit about his stomach hurting at about 6:00 this evening. It is now 7:09 and he has thrown up 5 times. Fun times here at our house. Pray for us. Pray that I can steer clear of that, even though I am smack dab in the middle of it all. Yuk.
- Reed has become quite the little chess player! I don't have any idea why he became interested in chess in the first place, but he has been learning with his Pop, and is very good. They love to play on Wednesdays when the boys are at Nannie and Pop's for the morning, and, shhhh! Reed wins. A lot. Pop has skills, though, and won today. Go Pop!
- Miles will be 5 at the end of this month. I'm afraid we're going to have to have a SpongeBob birthday party. He loves that stupid sponge, and I can't figure out why. Oh well, he is kinda cute. Last year we were in Disney World for his birthday, so I think we may have ruined him, as far as the celebrations go. How do you top Disney World? He did mention Hawaii, but did I mention Miles says some crazy stuff? He is funny.
Well, that's a rundown on our little corner of the world. I'll try to do better with posting, and hopefully it won't be February before I write again! Until next time...
