Family and Flowers

Mom brought us to Granny's to visit. Granny cooked lunch and we visited for a little while. I never cared for Granny's cooking, but something about the way it smells brings back fond childhood memories of when I'd sleep at her house. James has started feeling better, so he ran around the yard gathering flowers.

We picked up a nebulizer shaped like a fire truck in order to help James with his breathing and have some care-instructions and information in case of an emergency. I hope he gets better. My baby has been miserable.

James spent most of last night coughing his poor lungs up and barely slept. Mom said he was up at 2am so she let him sit with her in the den. Zac and I brought him to the doctor to find out what's wrong with him. He was hooked up to an oxygen machine and we waited about an hour for a diagnosis. They "thought" he was having an asthma attack, so we had to go to the ER. We were in the hospital a few hours with him while they gave him more oxygen, but nothing was helping him. His oxygen level was about 89 when normal levels are 95-100. I hate seeing my baby hooked up to machines. The IV was so difficult to watch. It's not official, but we were told to treat it like asthma. He was finally allowed to eat after about 18 hours, so he requested a cheeseburger. I hope we can leave tomorrow.

This Week's Randoms

Baby Girl learned how to blow kisses and play peek-a-boo. It's the cutest thing ever! She'll pop her mouth and make a kiss sound or she'll cover her eyes with her tiny hands and say "Ah!". So precious!

So far, it's been decent living with my parents. They're giving us some space, so it's not terrible. We've been able to do fun things with the kids more often.

I taught myself basic knitting this week. I found some how-to videos on YouTube after Dad gave me some of Gommie's old knitting needles a while back and I've been working on a scarf. It's super tricky, but fun.

Carlton invited us over for a barbecue, so we let the kids play with their cousins while we hung out for a bit.

Tattoo #4

Zac, Kyle and I took a trip to Kenner to meet Jessie for the first time and get me a new tattoo. It's just an outline right now, but I love where it's going. Jessie's really cool. We have so much in common.

We're spending the night at Sean's. My chest is burning, hah! And I'm sad that I have to go back to Mississippi alone. Zac's going to finish working the rest of his schedule before joining me at Mom's.

Leah started walking! She's such a big girl.

Back to Mississippi

Zac and I have been discussing the idea of him going back to college to get a degree in order to get a better job. I talked to my parents about the idea and they offered to have us move in with them temporarily so he can go without the stress of having to work and go to class.

We met up with my parents in McComb so they could take our babies back to their house in Mississippi while Zac and I finished signing papers and packing the rest of our things into the Uhaul. It's the first I've had Leah away from me overnight, which is stressing me out a bit, but I know she'll be fine with her big bubba.

Jena and Quinn invited us over for our last night in Louisiana. I'm sad to be moving again, but it's a good step forward, especially for Zac. It's only two years.
