Random Update

Jonah is under the weather today. His temperature got up to 102.3 at one point. He has pretty much been laying in the bed watching movies and me trying to get him to eat a little here and there and drink. His temperature had come down to 100.3 this afternoon and he's napping now. Poor baby! This morning he came over with a frown and sat down in the floor kind of whimpering. I asked him what's wrong and he said he wanted to go to the doctor. I asked "Why? Is something hurting?" And he grabs his throat. Post nasal drip is a bear in the morning to be sure. He has been surprising me with how articulate he is these days.

On Monday we went to Chick-fil-a for lunch and a young man in army fatigues held the door for us. As we were passing by, Jonah stopped and looked up at him and asked, "Are you a captain?" The young man replied, "No, I'm a Sargent. Can you say 'Sargent'?" And Jonah said, "Sargent." We thanked him and moved on. Interesting little interaction. He's already getting to the point where he can hold a conversation with a perfect stranger - LOL!

Here's another random thing that happened this week with Elisabeth. I was standing in our hallway doing laundry - moving clothes around - you know how it goes - it's kind of tight squeeze when I have the folding doors open. Anyway, I came around the corner to put some clothes in the wash and there she was in my path as usual. This was probably the first time that I said, "Beep, Beep." And don't you know it she went "Beep, beep" right back. She can also say "Zebra" but it sounds more like "Wee-bra." She loves watching animal shows and Barney. She literally bounces up and down when she seas Barney - "Barney goes to the Zoo" is her favorite movie right now.

Okay, well, pray the rest of us don't get whatever it is Jonah has. I'll keep you posted.
