The newest addition to our family

Well, our little Honda Element has been traded in for another car.  One that can fit all 3 of the kids and us as well.  So, we got a Ford Expedition.  We have been dealing with the dealership all week and I just didn't know if we would actually get it, so I didn't say anything about it until I knew it was ours.  And well.. it's ours now.  Now we have room for all 3 kids (all on the same row!) and a whole back seat for other people to be able to ride with us.. which is a first in about 3 years.

In other news, the kids are sick.  They both have been running fevers off and on all day.  I took Jon Kent to the doctor Thursday because he was just coughing and running a fever.  He got put on an antibiotic for 5 days.  His doctor also said he has a mild case of asthma, which wasn't new news to us.  We have been saying he has it for about a year now but the doctor didn't want to actually write it down in his charts.  And she still hasn't.  She said once he starts playing sports we'll see how things go and then if he's still having a problem with it, he will actually get diagnosed.  This way we can just keep it in the back of our minds.  She didn't want to write it down in his charts because she didn't want it getting the blame for all his problems or sicknesses.  ANYWAY, I am going to give them both until Monday to get rid of the fevers and at least get the coughing to where it's not like they are hacking up a lung.  If they aren't better by Monday... well, back to the doctor we will go.

I went to the doctor yesterday.  It was my 30 week visit.  All was good.  Nathan's heartbeat was strong, my blood pressure was good, urine was good, iron was fair but not low yet and my weight.. well... I gained 9 pounds in 4 weeks, so yeah.. not so good there.  Then I got a speech from the OB that I should have 30 minutes of heart increasing exercise 4 times a week and to lay off the cookies and empty calorie drinks.  So in others words... don't enjoy my pregnancy.  So yeah.. whatever.  I came home and made a batch of cookies to celebrate.. and guess what.. they are allll gone.  =P  I go back every two weeks now.

Well, that is all for now.  I am off to finish supper.  Talk with yall later!

I hate my babies are sick.  I had ALL kind of surprises for them.  If you all are going to be home after lunch tomorrow I want to bring them their stuff.  Poor Jon Kent he did not get as much as the other two.  I can't wait until Zoey sees her stash.  She is the one who really does not need any thing but..........well...........tell them Gramsie loves them and will be to see them later on.  Love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
