Just a little catch up on our last couple of weeks around here.
Hayes was up all night coughing one night and then tested positive for the flu the next morning. And it had him down! He slept all day that first day, but the Tamiflu kicked in and he was on the mend quickly. He stayed home and away from other kids for five days and was so ready to get back to school! The Tamiflu did, however, make him have some wild behavior in the middle of the night. I’d heard that hallucinations could be a side effect of Tamiflu (which sounds terrifying!), but he would really just wake up and cry and cry and cry in the night. So we were glad when the Tamiflu was gone and the flu was gone. My doctor put me on Tamiflu, too, and thankfully, the rest of us were spared.
KK came to visit for a few days last week. We had some little things we needed to get done. I’ve mentioned a lot that my mom is a decorator, so she came back to help me take care of a couple of projects around here like getting the boys’ shared closet organized, painting a wall, touching up teeth marks on the crib and just playing with the boys. They were heartbroken when she left last week, but she’ll be back soon. She’s been feeling great and we’re so thankful that she’s able to visit as often as she is. Every single moment we have with her is incredibly special!
Hudson started baseball this weekend. He played soccer the past two springs, but he wasn’t a huge fan of soccer. He and Todd have been spending a lot of time throwing and catching on the weekends and he has been so excited to start baseball. He got some new cleats and his first pair of baseball pants. The first practice went well. He’s still a little timid, but every time he practices he gets a little more confident.
I’ve been going to bed every night around 9:00 or 9:30… and I’m a typical night owl. I love staying up late. We’ve been watching Celebrity Apprentice and The Bachelor on Monday nights, but I can’t stay up late enough to watch them both. I just get so restless at night. I’m sleeping okay, but waking up a few times a night to go to the bathroom. And a few times every week, I’ll move to the couch around 4:30 a.m. and watch TV and doze until the kids wake up. At my doctor appointment yesterday, it was confirmed that there’s no progress and we’ll just keep waiting. The goal is to make it to my due date and have a c-section that day. He’ll be here before we know it!
