Matthew sleep

Poor Baby

We can add 'broom' to Matthew's vocabulary. He started saying it on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, he's now sick. He started getting cold symptoms on Monday. He sounded a little congested, but didn't even have a runny nose. Tuesday, he got the runny nose, but that was it. Yesterday, though, things got worse. He started coughing and sounded congested in his chest. He also ran a fever. It went between 101.8 and 102.3. In addition, he was breathing rapidly - about 60 breaths per second. I called the doctor and he said to give him a nebulizer treatement. This morning, he's still breathing faster than normal, but not nearly that fast and he sounds a little better. His fever has also broken.

What concerns me is that he seems to be getting sick rather often. We have an appointment on Friday (I made it several months ago, it's Kat's 3 year and Matthew's 18 month checkups). I guess I'll be talking to the doctor about this then. :-/

More Words...

Matthew started saying 'bubble' yesterday. This morning, I realised he's saying 'baby', though it sounds more like 'buhby'. He's latched on to one of the four baby dolls that Kat has. This one is the only male doll of the bunch. It's rather cute. I guess he sees her carrying around the dolls. Kat doesn't seem to mind.


1. ball
2. mama
3. daddy (dada)
4. kitty (mostly kiii, but started to say kiiittyyyy...)
5. spoon (boon)
6. book (pronounced right except no K)
7. bubble
8. baby (buhby)
Kat Matthew hug and kiss

Whew...

We have been so busy! The house is a mess and we're trying to get it straightened so we can have friends over for a grill out tomorrow. Of course, we also need to get it ready for my mother and my aunt who are coming to stay with us for a week. They arrive on Saturday. Poor Kurt has been doing most of the work while I tend to the children. I'm grateful to him though!

I'm afraid I didn't meet my quilting goals for the month. I wound up not feeling well and that completely threw me off. I did finish that mini quilt and I've got justagirl412's quilt basted. It just needs to be quilted and have binding put on it. I'm up to five quilts for the year. Five and a half if you count justagirl412's. :) Once I get Ami's done, I'll have five more left for the year. Well, four if you count only the ones that will be gifts. :)

Matthew is progressing by leaps and bounds! His walking improves every day. As of Sunday he is officially saying "mama' and "ball". Mama sounds like mama and sometimes 'ama', but ball sounds like 'bah'. Bah, bah, bah! He'll say it as he runs after one of the balls we have in the room. It's so cute! He also thinks that me making monkey sounds is really funny. He laughs quite loudly when I do it.

Kat is doing well. I'm working on putting letters together to make words. She knows Mommy. Sort of. *G* We're working on it. She's learning some new songs. I need to work on getting organised so I can plan out activities instead of just doing things on the fly and then wondering what I should do for the rest of the day. If anyone has any tips, please feel free to share them!

Too much to do, not enough time...or energy. Mow.
