Tummy Bug

Kai got it.

Scott got it.

Then I was taken ill.

What a loooong two weeks!  I won't go into too much detail, but we have suffered over here at our home the past fourteen days.  I'm drinking my first cup of coffee in what seems like forever, so you know that this has been uncomfortable.  I don't know if this was a bug or we all ate something bad, but I'm hopeful no one else got sick.

On a brighter note, I got the iphone 5 yesterday.  The lock button on my 4s stopped working a few weeks ago, but magically in the past few days, it started working again so I rushed to my local RadioShack, and turned it in.  They give you $210 store credit for a fully functional 4s, and the 5 was just lowered to $149, so I was able to get a cute purple cover and a screen protector, with money left over!  This is a great time to upgrade if you are eligible, so go do it!

Kai fell yesterday on the pavement in front of our house.  Can you see the bruise?  He's so manly.

Dear Kai,

You have a 103 degree temperature tonight.  So, I'm thinking that another ear infection is in our future. I'm hoping that is not the case as that would be number four in the recent Hatter history, and I'm not too keen on getting tubes in your ears.  We will see how the next few days go, little one.

These days:
29-ish lbs. (85th percentile)
18-24 month size clothes
Size 5 shoes
Size 5 diapers

A few of the words you are using: caaaaaaaar, vroom vroom, bus, dada, mama, ball, yay yay! (that's for Wheel of Fortune, which you still love), Nana, Hudson (ish), please, thank you, more.

We are amazed that you know lots of letters! You can identify about 10 letters now, and the number 2.  We keep these foam letters out that go in a puzzle mat, and you have just started picking them up and bringing them to us and saying the letter.  I'm so proud of that, and hope you keep a love of letters and reading!  You still love to "read" while you take a break from playing.  I love to watch you sit and flip through a few books, and point at pictures or talk like you are reading a book.

You recently had your first haircut and it was really traumatic...for me!  I thought you were going to freak out, but you did great!  I think it was only because you got to sit in a car, or as you say it, "caaaaaaaar."

You are starting to throw some fits/tantrums, but nothing too bad yet.  It came out pretty nicely when our friend Huddy came over to visit.  You wanted the toy he was playing with and he wouldn't give it to you (That's right, Huddy! Good boy, he can't just steal things from you.) You immediately collapsed into face-to-ground, arms-over-head, wail mode.  I was speechless.  That happened about three times in succession and then we all went about our business.  Other than that, you play really well with other kids, especially kids that are at least a few years older than you.  Recently, we have met some new neighbors and every time we are outside, you get so excited to play and run with everyone.  People keep telling me we need to have a baby brother or sister for you to play with, but Daddy and I just aren't ready yet.  (So, LAY OFF! *polite grin*)

Kai loves the ladies.  I catch you checking out gals in the supermarket, or grinning ear to ear when a lady even glances in your direction.  But, my son, they always love you too.  Those baby blues, a girl can't resist!

I think that sums things up pretty well right now.
