snow mann 2009

The very rare occasion of winter weather came our way this weekend! When we left church the snow was coming down in huge snowflakes and it lasted all day. I'd say we wound up with 3-4 inches at our house. It was so beautiful, and I wanted to make sure to get some pictures of Jonathan playing in it. We didn't stay out too long as he has a bit of a cough but I couldn't let the opportunity pass us by. Though the snow was pretty hard and therefore difficult for him to pick up, he did manage to get this big piece. Doesn't he look too cute in his winter gear?

So far, so good on the potty training front. Yesterday went really well. He spent the vast majority of the day nekkid (as I like to call it) and after one incident of peeing in his bedroom floor, actually peed on the potty twice & pooped once! We danced, jumped & clapped and he of course got his M&M's. He also got to use his "big boy soap" which he was thrilled about. Today went okay too. He did have one accident in his big boy underwear, but he hadn't peed nearly all day except in his diaper while he napped. I could tell it was about to happen, but couldn't do anything about it fast enough. Overall I'm pleased with how things are going so far. We're only on day two so I know we still have a long road ahead of us, but we'll make it. ;o)

The boy seems to be sick again. He started coughing a bit on Sunday & it's just getting worse. He had quite a coughing fit this morning while eating his applesauce. I was actually worried that he was going to throw up from it. Last evening he had a temperature of 101.5 and after his dose of Motrin fell asleep at like 8:15 which is early for him. Sadly he was up a few times in the night & we wound up just bringing him into our bed at around 5:00 am. None of us slept well after that; he just tossed & turned. At about 7:00 when Chris got up for work Jonathan decided he was ready to be awake too. He stayed in our bed & watched cartoons while mommy caught a few more Zzzz's. He's been rubbed down with Vick's tonight & so far I haven't heard him cough. Hopefully he sleeps better tonight... we would all benefit from it.

Okay, off to bed. Until next time...

Poor Jonathan :( I hope he feels better soon! I totally dreaded beginning to train Micah while he was sick....I praise you for trying! You are a brave woman (or maybe Jonathan's not as moody as Micah when sick) Good job!
