Jackson's Spring Break

I think that Jackson enjoyed his time with Papa and Granna. What do you think?

There's another baby who's sick. Stellan from My Charming Kids is having heart problems and is in the PICU. His condition is very serious. I read this blog daily and I can't imagine what his mom is going through. Since I started this blog, I have read about so many sick kids; kids with cancer who are struggling or died, complications after birth or during pregnancy, miscarriages, etc. It really makes me stop and count my blessings that I had a healthy pregnancy. I took it for granted that I would get pregnant, have a healthy pregnancy and deliver a healthy baby with no problems. I never worried, not even when Jackson had fluid on his lungs when he was born. The nurses told me that it was completely normal. Brayden was born with fluid on his lungs and ended up in critical condition. I have really been kicked in the gut for being so naive. A healthy pregnancy and delivery really is a miracle. I don't fear being pregnant again, because God is in control, but I will enjoy and appreciate every moment.

Oh yes, he's definitely mine!

CDO...It's like OCD just with the letters in alphabetical order, like they should be.

Snow. Flu. Grade.

Edited to add: I am such an idiot. I named my post snow... and didn't even mention it. I wanted to say that we enjoyed watching the snow, but Jackson napped through most of it. When he got up at lunch, it was gone. So, he missed his first snow!

WARNING: This post has the potential to be a boring rambling mess! I am trying to keep everyone updated on what has been going on since I last posted.

Whew! It has been some week around here! Jackson came down with the flu last Tuesday and we have been out of daycare/work ever since. Everybody at daycare ended up with it, including Linda (Somehow Clint and I got lucky). So, we were closed today for her to recoup and tomorrow for her to disinfect. Anna ended up catching the worst case I think. We hope she feels better soon!

The weekend was gorgeous and Jackson felt well enough to get out a little. Saturday he didn't feel much like playing on his own, but Daddy took him for a ride on the four-wheeler. Sunday he felt well enough to play and he helped me pick up some limbs in the yard. No pictures, sorry! I have been forgetful with the camera lately.

I received my score from the latest portion of my CPA test... I passed!!!!!! ONE MORE TO GO! I will take my last section April 18th.

We walked down to the pond this afternoon just to kill some time and let Jackson get out. To my surprise, the little stinker wanted in! There is a spring that feeds into the pond at the end where we were, so the water is clear and shallow. I took his shoes off and let him check it out. I totally expected him to think the water was too cold and the bottom too mushy. Oh, no. He wanted to play and against my better judgement, I let him. I really thought the water was just too cold. He loved every second!! And screamed when I took him out. Of course, I didn't have my camera, so I missed a good kodak moment!
