Have you ever notice someone in your life who just demands your every moment? I'm sure we all have. Did you know that is really a sign of insecurity? Surprisingly so. By setting boundaries, a person becomes secure in their environment. Now if I could just apply that in my life. ;o)

That was the most interesting x-ray that we have ever had. Mya was sitting on the little stool so that she could get her side view x-ray and pow, bam, boom--the electrical box or whatever, in the corner put on a show worthy of the 4th of July. Mya just took it in stride. She was most interested in getting more stickers. I am surprised since she doesn't like thunder or fireworks. Thankfully we are OK except for burnt eyebrows (JK). The x-rays had to be retaken but not due to the malfunction. It wasn't lined up properly. Just waiting for the results now to make sure there is no pneumonia, which was only a small possibility. Most likely one of those pesky viruses.

Well, we have an appointment with the pediatrician at 1:30 today. Mya seems a bit better but she spiked a temp again last night. So I want to have her checked just to be safe. Don't like the sound of the cough and now she is talking pretty raspy. She did eat cereal this morning at her own request. An appetite is usually a good sign.
On the frustration side, I could use some adult interaction and a little more cooperation from Miss Mya. Our usually demanding daughter has become even more so. Add to that a sugar drop (or possibly aniety) that left me shakey this morning and I'm a bit cranky. I've watched more Dora, Diego, Blue's Clues, Charlie Brown (and the list goes on) and general children's TV in the last 3 days to put me in the insane listings. Calgon, take me away!

The sun is shining for the first time in 3 days. Yipeee!!
The bad news is that Mya is on her third day of being sick. She woke up with 104 temp last night (under the arm - so add a degree). I gave her a cool bath and some ibuprofen to bring it down. She has developed a cough, too. The daycare is not reporting any sickness. So, no clues there. If she's not better by tomorrow, it's off to the doc.
Kids are so funny. Her temp is still over 101 and she is playing like normal. I'd be wiped out if I had that temp. The biggest clue that she is sick is that her apple juice consumption is decreased.
Keep our little "apricot blossom" in your prayers.

I don't think about this often but it is a remote possibility. The answer is: Lily's name will be Noah James. Ha! Bet you didn't think we had a name picked. God knows what child is the best fit for all of us. He has already made the match. Just like he gave us bio kids that we didn't know anything about, we will be surprised by our new addition. No matter what, this is our last child, Just ask Keith.

Monday morning I walked out the front door to find one of our trees had turned yellow. I heard geese flying over and the air was crisp. It hardly seems possible that another fall could be upon us. I know that it will happen soon. We'll be off to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin and then we'll rake up the leaves and jump in them. Then we will be tired of leaves and bag them all. Then the the snow will fly amd we will sit in front of the fireplace and drink hot cocoa. Boy, I love fall. It reminds me of the farm.
