Whoa man this actually worked! I'm so excited! I have been trying to put videos on here for so long and I can't tell you how happy I am that I think I got it to work. This is a video of Joey showing off his dance moves. Don't ask where he got them from but man is he a ham! Any time there is music on he dances like this. It's too funny!

A Weekend Without Sickness!

Wow! Knock on wood, we made it a weekend without a sick child. It was wonderful! Too bad it rained all weekend. But now we have a new and exciting problem. Okay minus the exciting...Our dear precious boy is a tantrum king! I thought they didn't start that until they were 2, but oh no, he can throw a good one. The other day we got pizza from Papa Murphy's for dinner. (where you take it home to bake) Well Joey saw the pizza when we got home and decided that he wanted it right then. I had to bake it so I put it in the oven and Joey started to cry and kick his feet on the floor. This continued the entire 20 minutes that the pizza was in the oven. We tried giving him other food, distracting him with his favorite toys, but nothing worked. Needless to say we have our hands full! But he's so darn cute...

Water Aerobics

Oh man did I have fun tonight! Melissa and I started water aerobics at the Grandville Middle School. We were a little worried at first but then realized that we were some of the youngest people there and had nothing to worry about how we looked in a bathing suit! It was a lot of fun though (although I am a little itchy right now...) I am a little sore and can imagine that I will be even sorer tomorrow. But it's great exercise and a nice break from life for a while. Brian has been gracious enough to watch Joey and Jessica tonight, not an easy task as Joey is still getting over something and a crabby pants. But he made it and we made it and we are signed up for thirteen weeks of this so we better get used to it! I think it's time for some popcorn and a little rest and relaxation. Small group starts tomorrow night which is always a great time and I can't wait! TTFN!

The first of many

Here begins the insanity! Well I guess it is not that crazy here, crazy is as crazy does, right? Our life is pretty simple here, I guess I just started a blog to join the revolution. I hope this keeps our friends and families in touch.

So as many of you know, Joey gets sick quite often. Three weeks ago we had tubes put in his ears after endless ear infections and a failed hearing test. We thought that he would be healthier now that he has these tubes but I guess we were wrong. Last week he had a yucky cold again which caused his ears to drain. We made it through that and were hoping for a great week free of sickness (we are on about a two week cycle of sicknesses with him). But that is not the case! Our beautiful son did not poop all weekend (I sound like Jonna). Monday night he had a small one and has successfully had a small little one each day. I was thinking he was okay, but then Miss Barb at daycare came to tell me today that Joey threw up twice in the last half hour or so. Joey has never thrown up so I was a little frightened. I went and checked on him and he seemed okay, ready for a nap, but okay. So I called the doctor and told her what was going on and she said to try the prune juice and see what happens. So we are trying and waiting... pray for patience, he's pretty crabby...I would be too if I had a gut ache like that. And pray for health, something that we just can't seem to get a handle on.
