|Daddy and Jake getting some CLEAN drinking water. (Cleaner than city water run through a brita filter!)|
This past Friday night we attended the Cherry Point Air Show's night show. That was fun and our 7 yr old Jacob had a blast. He had a slight cough but I really didn't think much of it. He was acting fine. This also happened to be our newborn son's first Air Show (he slept through 90% of it, until of course he was hungry and needed to be changed). Come Saturday though Jake was irritable but still wanted to go to the Air Show. Baby Mikey had been a bit irritable too but I chalked it up to him having a growth spurt and eating every hour to 2 hours. The Air Show went over well with a few breakdowns from both kids. Hubby was able to get tickets to sit in the Blue Angel box seating. That was awesome and our oldest loved it at first. Then it became boring/he wanted to go on the tanks more than watch the show. Sometimes I don't get that kid... Luckily I "convinced" him to hang out there and we'd do all the other activities the next day, because soon after we were invited to meet the pilots and have a picture taken out on the flight line by one of DH's bosses. AWESOME!!!!!
However, after that I took the boys home and that was it. All three of us were sick. Lucky for us it has only been fevers, coughs, stuffy noses and body aches. I have blown through (literally) 2 boxes of tissues already. BLAH. Thanks you to my little 1st grader for bringing home the crud. I hate the fact that I catch colds/bugs so easily! I hate that our newborn caught a bit of it too. :( He does not like having his nose cleared with suction, he screams like I am doing the worst possible thing in the world to him. LOL. Ok, it is a little amusing but having to hold his head still is almost a two man operation! He hasn't had a fever thank goodness. But of course I started questioning breastfeeding him while being as sick as I was. Then I found this article "When a Nursing Mom Gets Sick" It has some great information throughout it and on Tuesday at his 1 month appointment the doc said not to worry about feeding him, he'll get the antibodies from me and that he is perfectly healthy minus the congestion.
So at his appointment on Tuesday he was 10.5lbs and 23.5in tall!!!! That little booger gained 2lbs in 2 weeks! :)) Even daddy was saying how he is getting heavy while holding him at the Air Show.
Breast milk, it does a baby good! :))

As for deciding on what to do with work..... Yeeaaaaaaaa...... Still a little undecided there. I was heavily leaning toward staying home last week and then this week I just don't know. I do have the opportunity to work from home with another job... I'm looking more into that first. I just know it is going to be a haul to take care of the home front and work full time while the hubby is away, which might be coming up again here very soon for trainings and schooling that he is working toward attending. (This is a fact that he brought up in an attempt to "help" me choose SAHM, which is what he wants). My Pro's & Con's list continues to grow....
