Lapse

It may have come to your attention that there was a lapse of sort in posts from the time that we went to the park until the time when I posted the park pictures. That is because Jack and Mommy have been horribly, terribly, nauseatingly SICK for the last five days. Every fear that I ever had of getting Jack and Jeff's "flu bugs" became a nightmarish reality this last week. It must be the my body was in a weakened state from the last couple of weeks, because when I fell, I fell hard. The puking began Sunday night at bedtime and lasted until morning. By the time 5:00 a.m. rolled around, Jeff had to practically carry me back to bed. He called in Monday morning and stayed home all day to take care of Jack. I honestly cannot remember the last time I was that sick. I was on the phone talking to the doctor by the time their doors opened and got some medication to help me stop puking. Uggh. Blech. Convulsive shiver.

Here it is, Thursday night, and I am only just now starting to feel my "humanness" again. In the meantime, Jack continues to have little bouts of tummy troubles because of his teeth. I think that not only the eye teeth are coming, but a couple of molars as well. It's hard to tell, since there are no visible teeth yet, just extremely swollen gums.

On the brighter side, Jack has begun to say some new words! He now uses two vowels! Such as: uh-oh and hi da da! He also says ball, done, drink, bath, and something that frequently sounds like "ga-ma", we think. He can also now climb up on top of the table, and he got a new wagon that I can wheel him around in up and down the lane.

That's all for now! I hope that you're all staying healthy and WELL!

I'm so sorry you have been sick. Connor and I both currently have a cough, I hope it doesn't become a cold though! It is so exciting to hear them talk isn't it! I think I am extra excited because Connor has had some speech delays, but his favorite word is CAR right now!
