influenza!

poor "m" woke up yesterday with burning up! we took his temp. under his arm and it was 103.7--which would really be 104.7 because it reads lower under your arm. we gave him motrin and tylenol--which he threw up twice, but was finally able to hold down one additional dose of motrin. the poor boy was feeling horrible! he slept most of the morning but then threw up again. "A" was such a great big brother. he read to him, wrote a story for him entitled "Math Baby and Fun", and offered to dump the vomit out of the bowl that "M" was sick in. if that isn't a sweet brother i don't know what is! of course i didn't have him clean it out--tempting though! in the afternoon we sent "A" to church with some neighbors and took "M" to the kids care. he has the nasty influenza that is going around. not fun! he seems sooooo much better today. hopefully we will both get a good nap!

So glad he is feeling better... he is such a sweet kid. I'm sure he will be as great a big brother as A is for him.

Hey! Of course I remember you! Thanks for looking at the blog!

Yes, I am due at the end of June. I am so excited to hear you are having a girl. She is going to have the pick of the lot when she comes of age. We have had over 15 births in our ward over the past little while and they have all been boys. So congrats!

It will be good to reconnect and see how you and your little family progress!
