We had a very nice Christmas weekend in the Crookston area. We left early to avoid the snowstorm. Everyone made it in time for Christmas Eve church service. Christmas Day we had planned to go to Andrew’s great aunt Marilyn’s house, but it was too stormy for everyone to make it, so we postponed the celebration until Sunday. We had a nice Christmas Day stormed in with the Lindsay cousins and aunts and uncles. Saturday was still pretty stormy, but it was nice enough by Sunday to travel. We had a nice time with the extended family and Santa even visited. Andrew’s daycare was closed the week after Christmas, so we decided to leave Andrew at Grandma and Grandpa’s house in Crookston. The cousins were still there, so it was lots of fun for him. We want to say thank so much to Ryan’s dad for snow blowing our driveway while we were away! How nice to just drive right into the garage Sunday night!
We went to church on the Sunday after Christmas, and Andy starting getting all snuggly like he was going to fall asleep about the middle of the service. This was very out of character for him, so we thought something might be wrong – well we found out by the end of the service when he started throwing up. Unfortunately for me, most of ended up on the front of my shirt. Luckily for Andrew, it made him feel a lot better and was good to go for the rest of day. We think that the illness trickled down to us though because Monday night, Ryan and I were both sick! Both of us were awake throwing up several times throughout the night. We both hadn’t been sick like that for many years. We were very thankful that Andrew was not home.
I made my OB appointment on Tuesday afternoon. Baby #2 is doing well and we got to hear the heart beat. I lost some weight from the last appointment. I attributed it to the previous night causing some dehydration. Next up is the ultrasound in February. Right now we are leaning towards not finding out the gender of the baby this time either. It was fun to hear “It’s a boy” with Andrew’s birth, so we are looking forward to that surprise again.
We got Andrew back on Thursday! We missed him while he was gone. The house was so quiet, so it’s great to have him back. I think he has been playing basketball with his little hoop whenever he gets the chance. He has had a bit of an attitude since he’s been home. Mainly not wanting to ever take his shoes off or change his clothes or diaper. Putting on his jacket, hat and mittens to go somewhere is also a chore. He wants to come with, but he would rather go without the warm clothes. That’s not going to work so well around here. It’s been so cold! It was -35°F on Saturday night. That’s without the wind chill factor. The highs are supposed to be much above zero if at all the rest of week. Brrrrrr.
We are back to the grind tomorrow. Thanks for checking in.
