Back to Work

I started back to work today, getting stuff ready for the upcoming preschool year. I have a FABULOUS assistant teacher who is a work horse and incredibly efficient and fast. It certainly helps make up for my slowing abilities at the moment!

Hannah and Isaac were super excited to spend time with their babysitter Amanda. They hadn't seen Amanda since mid May, so it was a happy reunion. They didn't go to far today, I told them to stay close to the bathroom. Here is why...

Last night Hannah convinced me that she was having poopy problems, that she hadn't gone for a few days. This happens on occasion, so I gave her the appropriate medicine to help get things going. She promptly, I mean within a minute, went into the bathroom and went. She, for some odd reason, just wanted the medicine. So, now she had a good dose of stool softener in her system with no real reason for it. Thus, they stayed close to the facilities just in case.

Both Hannah and Isaac are still struggling with a cold and allergies. I'm hoping the cold runs it course quickly and they will be back to normal soon. So far Aaron and I have remained cold free. Neither of us need a cold right now... like we ever really NEED a cold, but it wouldn't be good timing.

We had an ultrasound yesterday, and the baby is great. I was distraught to hear that the head is measuring 2 weeks ahead of everything else, so I will be blessed with delivering a baby with a big head... great. My due date moved to December 25 and we found out my doctor will be gone Dec.22-25. So, I might get my wish of being induced on the 19th or 20th. That would work out great! I can't imagine going into labor early since I have never gone into labor on my own. So, I'm half way through this pregnancy and I am sure the rest will zoom by. I'm trying to enjoy every kick and movement as I know this will be the last time I am pregnant. No more bio kids for us after this!

Lesson Learned

Both Hannah and Isaac have colds, and probably some seasonal allergies to make things worse. August is the worst for allergies here on the Palouse. Anyway, I gave them each some Dimetapp before heading off the church. No big deal, they've had this medication before. Well, Isaac seemed to develop a new reaction to this particular drug. When the bottle says that it may cause excitability, they weren't kidding. Isaac was non stop movement all through church and beyond, in fact he didn't even take a nap. He ALWAYS naps! He kept trying to climb the pew and hop over the top to the pew in front of us. He was never standing still, either dancing or hopping around. (This got a big smile out of our Pastor). I made sure Aaron had him when we went up for communion... I don't think I could have held onto him! Anyway, I will not be giving Isaac Dimetapp again. Lesson learned.

Long Time No Blog

It has been quite awhile since my last blog. Things got busy... we were gone a lot during July. To make thing short, we had a wonderful month of July. We had lots of time with family and friends, and my PICC line was removed! Hooray!

I am 20 weeks pregnant on Monday. We are having an ultrasound that day and Aaron and the kids are coming along totake a peek. It should be fun. As of this moment, we are not finding out the sex of the baby. I'm starting to see the benfits of finding out ahead of time, but I know they aren't always right. Anyway, it will be fun to see the little baby again.

We have a cold, rainy day today... much needed relief from the horribly hot temps we have been having. The heat has really slowed all of us down. And harvest is in full swing so allergies are raging. Both Hannah and I seem to have the most problems with the harvest dust.

August will be a busy month for us as both Aaron and I are getting ready for the school year. Hannah is super excited for Kindergarten and Isaac for preschool. It will be here before we know it. We will get a little more family time in with Aaron's folks as they will be coming here for a week long visit.

Hannah and Isaac get to go to a birthday party tomorrow afternoon, I'm tagging along. It will be so good for the kids to see preschool friends and I get to see preschool parents! I always love visiting with my parent friends. I haven't seen any of them really since school ended. It should be a good time all around!

I will promise to TRY and blog more often, even if it's short! That' s it from Endicott!
