I took Tate to see the doctor this morning and he said that Tate has pneumonia. He left lung sounds "crackly" but his right lung sounds pretty clear. He gave us an antibiotic. Tate spit out half of it when we tried to give it to him. I mixed some with Hershey's syrup and bribed him with a Kit Kat to take the rest. Tate fell asleep for about ten minutes in the way home which ruined his afternoon nap. He was a crabby mess most of the afternoon. He is so happy at the start of most breathing treatments these days since he thinks his mask makes him look like a duck. I hope he feels better soon!

30 Weeks

I am 30 weeks today!  My nesting has taken the form of hoarding. Tate's cough is worse. He didn't go to school but we ran to the chiropractor and then got groceries. He started running a fever after his nap.

Tate had a rough night with his cough so we all are tired today. Brett was working with the cattle from 2:30-4:00. Hopefully Tate is on the mend soon so we can get some rest. I went back to the chiropractor today.  My pelvis keeps slipping out of place.

The boys played outside in the snow we got this morning. It got Tate's cough all fired up again and he can't sleep. Poor little guy!!  He was pretending his shopping cart was his bat mobile today.

I wasn't going to decorate the nursery but then I got new curtains and one thing led to another. I have my grandma's cedar chest and inside is a box of beautiful doilies. My mom thinks that my great-grandma probably made most of them.  So I got some frames from my mom and rounded up our spray paint and went to work. My mom also gave me two little pictures of cats that she had in her room when she was little. Apparently my grandma's friend's dad made them for my grandma and she loved them.  I am happy with the way the room turned out.

Brett got a pudding kiss today!  I got some new glasses!  I also went to the chiropractor. I could actually lift up my legs to dress/undress without terrible pain.

Brett went and traded in our Traverse for a Town and Country. Boy, it is sweet!!  He went to three different dealerships and ended up getting the best price on the one I test drove. Tate was telling me all day that he didn't want a new car but when he got to jump around and play in it he ended up loving it. Tate enjoyed tuna noodles for lunch!  I struggled with pain in my tailbone all day.
