i’m so sorry i haven’t updated in a while. i’m sorry for worrying anyone (especially you, julie, since you knew we were sick).
let’s work our way backwards, starting with today.

josiah has rotavirus. we went to the dr today and she “confirmed it”. by that, i mean she looked at the poop color. *rolls eyes* no test, nothing. so we’re still not 100% sure. the only thing we can do is continue to watch his liquid intake. so far he’s been getting enough to have wet diapers.

on tuesday, jerry, jeremiah, josiah and i started feelings sick. vomiting and dia. for the boys, dia. for the adults. jerry vomited once, but both of us were able to keep it at bay for the most part. it was in our throats but ykwim. jeremiah and josiah seemed to get better a few times, but threw up again each night.

we took josiah to the dr today because while he’s consistently had dia., the color changed from a pale yellowy-green color to a bright, flourescentish green color. i remembered it from jeremiah’s rotavirus scare.

the party was fun, although slightly disappointing. two friends and their family didn’t make it (both of which have little boys) and my brother and sil and niece didn’t make it. i was very sad about those absences. ๐Ÿ™ the monkey cake was a hit. it was yummy too! ๐Ÿ™‚

josiah got a lot of things – mainly little people things. we got him the a-z little people zoo. both the boys LOVE it. and he got some much-needed new outfits. ๐Ÿ™‚

i will try to get the pics up for you to see. the cake-eating was great! ๐Ÿ™‚

oh, and i started a new blog for the boys. i don’t know how long i’ll have it up, because you know me and how consistent i am…but it’s http://jboys.vox.com – it will have pics and videos and posts BY the boys. ๐Ÿ™‚ you have to be signed in, and unfortunately you have to be a member to sign in, and you have to be invited to be a member. if you want an invite, let me know.

well i think that’s all for now…please keep our little family in your prayers!!!

    Boy, it sounds like you guys have really been hit hard. I sure hope Josiah gets better soon… Are the rest of you feeling better?

    I’ll have to sign up to check out the boys’ blog tonight… I only got on while I ate lunch… I am supposed to be packing! ๐Ÿ˜† (The big move is coming up)… Do I have to have an invite to sign up, or can I just click the link to find a registration place?

    I gave up on having separate blogs for the kids… I wasn’t keeping them up. *sighs* I do plan on having them post on my blog every once in a while, once we’re settled into the new place.

    Thanks for the post!

    Love you!

    By all means send me an invite. I’ll try and sign up for a VOX account, but I get horrible about logging in to stuff. I do want access though… so we’ll see if I can get my lazy butt in gear. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sorry to hear y’all have been sick. ๐Ÿ™ Get better soon!!
    A little girl I babysat had that Little People alphabet zoo (she had all kinds of neat Little People stuff) and I thought it was so cute.

    I hope you all are feeling better now! Did Josiah ever get that Rotavirus vaccination or is that even more recent. Jenna will get her 2nd one of that on Friday with her other 4 month vaccinations. I hope she doesn’t ever get Rotavirus. So far Mackenzie has never had it and I hope it stays that way! Sorry I haven’t had much time to reply, but I’m back to work now and I keep pretty busy with work and being a mommy and a wife too! Mackenzie’s birthday is today, so things have been even more hectic lately! Can you believe she is 3 years old already!? Time flies by way too fast!
    Take care!
