DJ Love

Tuesday, April 28, 2009


Well its been a busy past 7 days! Last Wednesday was a beautiful day and DJ and I went to the park on my first day of vacation. He was quite a good little boy and enjoyed the slide and swing.

On Thursday, we left for Oklahoma City, we got as far as Wichita that night and then drove the rest of the way on Friday morning. We had a GREAT visit with Al and Peg. It was great to see then, have them "meet" DJ and spend time together. I will post pictures of all of us shortly. They are on Devon's camera.

We were able to take the Oklahoma City water taxi and see the sights of Downtown. We also got to attend the Health and Fitness Expo and get ready for the 5K walk.
However, it wasn't meant to be.....DJ came down on early (2am) Saturday with a nasty cough and therefore to the ER we went...he has croup again! Poor little guy-- I want Spring more than anything for no more colds!

We decided to not do the race due to DJ's sickness and left early on Sunday for home...a long 10 hour drive home...and we made it safe and sound.

One last picture of DJ and I on my birthday....

Well, its not Chicken Pox

Thank goodness, its not chicken pox. He just has a small sore on his mouth and a few scratches that are healing, add those all together and you have a perceived appearance of chicken pox.

Fortunately we have just the standard ear infection/runny nose and fever. Add that to teething, no sleeping for Mom and Dad!

Oh well, who needs sleep!

7 months and Happy Easter!!

Happy 7 months DJ!

It has a been a busy few days, DJ and I drove to IL on Friday to visit with Grandpa Mair and Uncle Bob. We had a nice time on Friday and then had the chance to visit with friends on Saturday. It was a great time. We also saw Great Grandma Mair while we were there and she was quite taken with DJ. It was great to have a nice visit with her.

We drove home on Saturday after DJ spiked a nice fever, it is getting to be pattern whenever we return to IL. I thought it was probably an ear infection, which it is after seeing the Dr. just before close on Saturday evening. They also believe he may have chicken pox, we will see what his pediatrician thinks tomorrow morning. I guess if we have to get over it quickly and early on its best to get it over with.

It's very hard to believe that DJ is 7 months old. He is changing very fast and daily able to do something new. It's amazing how big he is getting and how different he is from when we brought him home.

We are so happy to have fun with him daily, its just amazing how much he laughs and giggles, even when he doesn't feel well.

I will update more tomorrow when we get another diagnosis!!
