Spring Break is almost over

Sigh, spring break is almost over. I will definately miss being home with Jackson for the next 9 weeks. Then it's summer!!! That I can't wait for.

We have had a very eventful break. With Jackson's illness, Stroller Strides, and family time we have kept ourselves very busy!

Andy's family is coming into town tonight. His parents will be here and it will be nice to have them around! Andy is excited to get his garage cleaned up with his Dad's help. Jackson will have lots of fun playing with his grandparents and I know my MIL will get a lot of great pictures of him!!! I have been bad about taking pictures lately! Get into a routine and kind of forget!!!

Back to laundry and making enchiladas for the fam!

Shots and more shots

Jackson is still a sick little boy. He has double ear infections (pulsing and red according to the doctor) and bronchial spasams. So Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week we spent time at the doctor's office. Each day getting a shot of a very strong antibiotic. This has made him very cranky. To fix the bronchial spasams we have had to give him an oral steriod 2x a day (it's grape flavored and it makes me want to vomit) and 3-4x per day give him breathing treatments. It is sooo much fun!

He has been a big sleeper lately, too. Today he fell asleep at 10:30 and is just staring to wake up at 12:45, maybe he will be skipping his 1pm nap, today! Hopefully, he will sleep better tonight. The poor little guy wakes up screaming 2-3 times. Partly due to his ear infections. It's been tons of fun!

This is the last 2 days of our spring break and we are making the most of it! Staying home and getting some cleaning done and other things off the to-do list!! Lots left to accomplish, it's a never ending list!

Jackson and the Easter Bunny

Jackson and his Postville Vet Clinic hat

Jackson had a great time meeting the Easter Bunny!

Fussy time

Being a stay at home mom for the week has been amazing!!! I love all the good times Jackson and I have had during the day! We take little outings each day to do something and it has been great! We exercised a few days, took some walks in the beautiful sunshine and did some shopping. All in all my first week of spring break was great! Can't wait for the 2nd week!!

Jack-man has been really fussy the last couple of days. Especially right as he is going to bed. He rubs his ears a lot and that is a sign that his ear infections are back. He is such a momma's boy, I love it!!

Andy and I are going to watch a movie... we don't do that very often!
