Ickie Sickie

My poor boy is sick...

A few nights ago his fever got up to 102.7 degrees. He has been congested, coughing, and sneezing.

Unfortunately there isn't much I can do to help relieve his discomfort, but I have been doing anything possible!

The humidifier has been going nonstop, regular doses of Tylenol, Baby Vicks Rub to help soothe the congestion, baths, sitting in a steamy bathroom, massage, lots of naps, and extra nursing.

I hope my poor boy feels better soon, it just breaks my heart knowing he isn't feeling well. Especially when he has a coughing fit, yucky!

And to top things off, Matt isn't feeling well either and just today I am beginning to feel a little under the weather. Plus I go to work tomorrow and I was really concerned that I needed to be home with my sick baby! Luckily, Matt made arrangements to watch Scott while I go to work. I think it is better to have mommy or daddy at home rather than a babysitter while Scott is sick.

Hopefully this doesn't last too much longer!

Pumpkin Patch Fun

This is really the best time of the year! Personally I love the cool, brisk weather, and anticipation of the upcoming holidays! This year should be extra fun because it will be Scott's first Halloween!

To get ourselves ready for our Fall celebrations we took Scott to the pumpkin patch at Irvine Park.
We helped him pick out a pumpkin, walked through the hay maze, took a few pictures, and even had a side trip to the Orange County zoo to look at the animals. It was a quick trip, but lots of fun for our little family. Here are a few pictures of Scott picking out his pumpkin!

So many pumpkins!

Scott took his time to find just the right pumpkin

Maybe these ones are too big...

Say "cheese!"

What a fun adventure we had!
