March 2012

Needless to say, I'm way behind on my posts! To start off, I feel much better now and haven't had to use the breathing maching once since the week I was sick. Yeah! A week later Gramma Jean & Grampa Larry came to stay with me. Mommy & Daddy went on vacation with her family to Mexico. I'm sure Gramma & Grampa have some pictures of me while they stayed here, I just don't have them yet. Instead, I'll share some pics from Mommy & Daddy's trip to Mexico:

 They arrived on St. Patty's day - wearing their green shamrocks!
 Daddy got a lot of water time, throwing his Waboba water ball.
Watching the sunrise... 
The whole group! 

An excursion to Xel-Ha (prounounced "shell-ha")... 
Floating down the river... 
snorkeling...saw some amazing fish! 
Zip lines into the water! 
Swimming in caves!
Mexican Fiesta party!

A picture with Pancho.
More time at the pool... 
A little book reading... 
A little card playing... 
A LOT of pool time! 

Happy hour on the patio at a wine bar
It was a great time had by all! Can't wait to do it again!

Here's a couple randoms of me from the rest of the month:

Daddy's school had a roller skating night. Mommy brought me to watch all the kids. I had LOTS of fun watching them... until I saw that they had wheels on their shoes (I still LOVE to watch wheels!). I had a hard time figuring that out and did a lot of staring at their feet. I kept on saying, "Wheels. Look wheels!"  Here's a few pictures from that night:
Daddy's class had the most people there, so he lined up a class picture. But instead of getting permission from each parent to post the picture, I just chopped down the pic to just Daddy and me. This was our funny face picture. Daddy was making funny faces and I was trying to figure out what was going on. I couldn't help but watch all the kids make their funny faces!

We had some 90 degree days here in the last month. Time to break out the shorts and sandals! I got some good playing time outside. I loved playing on my bike and in my car! We got the sidewalk chalk out too! It was some good fun!!

Sick boy, but now getting better!

Pajama Day Monday!!

I've had a heck of a week! I wasn't feeling too well last weekend - had a fever on and off all weekend with this nasty fluid-filled cough. Mommy stayed home with me on Monday and took me to the Dr. They found a bit of fluid in my lungs and said it was the onset of pneumonia. I got a shot in each of my thighs and some medicine to take. The Dr. said we should notice a difference in 24 hourse, but by Wednesday I still had these coughing fits and obviously wasn't getting better. I went back to the Dr. that day where the he still thought it might be pneumonia or symptoms of asthma due to my wheezing when I coughed. I got 2 more shots in my thighs and a breathing treatment with albuterol. They could tell a difference already after the breathing treatment! The Dr. wanted to rule out pneumonia so he also ordered a chest xray for the next morning. Gramma came down that night so that she could stay with me and help me with the breathing treatments the next couple days. Luckily, the xray came back negative for pneumonia, so they're still leaning towards asthma.

I now have a machine for breathing treatments that I take every 4 hours when I'm coughing - with a cute little fish mask. I do really good with the treatments and sit still the entire time. I like to hold the mask and help turn the machine on and off.
 My appetite is also coming back. I had a hard time wanting to eat anything all week and didn't have more than a couple bites each day. Mommy made some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins today and I ate 2 whole muffins (which is more than I'd had all week)!

Gramma stayed the weekend to help out. The weather was beautiful today! Gramma and Mommy took me to the park today while Daddy gave Sadie a bath.
We had lots of fun!

Bathtime with crayons! 
My masterpiece!
