It's been a CRAZY couple weeks let me tell ya. So a little (I mean long) recap of what's been going...
Starting August 18th I was officially on vacation with my little family. So that Thursday the three of us headed to a local amusement park. It was a gorgeous day and we all had a blast! Since that was also our 4th wedding anniversary, once C was in bed we cooked a delicious meal together and had a bonfire, complete with s'mores!! It was a great start to our little 'staycation.'
Friday morning we met up with my parents and nephew and spent the morning boating. It was another gorgeous day and we all had a lot of fun enjoying the weather and boating. After naps, we hung out at my parents house. The boys are at great ages (they are only 7 months apart!) and really love being around each other and playing.
Saturday we had my friend's daughter's 1st birthday party and then we headed to Saratoga to visit Matt's oldest sister. Sunday we just hung around the house and the cousins all played together. The weather wasn't great but it was so nice to have a relaxing day just hanging out. During C's nap we took our niece and nephew out for ice cream which was a treat for all of us. We really love spending time with all our nieces and nephews! On Monday morning the three of us headed to the race track and walked around downtown Saratoga. We later met up with Matt's sister and her kids and spent the afternoon and early evening enjoying Lake George. The kids played on the beach, we spent time at the arcade, we ate Polish Water Ice (my fave!) and just had fun!! We left that night around C's bedtime and made the 4 hour drive home.
On Tuesday and Wednesday we just hung out around the house - trying to get some things done as well as relax and enjoy being together.
On Thursday I went into the office for about an hour before heading to Buffalo for our annual overnight strategic planning event. I hated being away from my boys but so thankful it was only for one night and, of course, thankful for Facetime :) Thursday was our 'fun' day - we were able to tour the naval park on our own and then went on a harbor cruise before enjoying dinner and drinks. Friday was spent in meetings all day before heading home to my little family <3
Saturday was just a regular day. But then Sunday. Sunday was horrible. C woke up and was having trouble breathing. He was wheezing a little but mostly we could see how hard he was working to breathe. We called the doctor and spent over 3 hours in the office. He had 3 nebulizer treatments and a dose of a steroid. He basically slept all morning on me, though not soundly due to difficulty breathing and constant interruptions. We finally got home and saw a huge improvement in his breathing. He ate a quick lunch and was back down for a nap. He was clearly so exhausted from working so hard just to breathe - my poor little baby. It was such a scary day for Matt and I. I am happy to say he is doing much better!!! We were sent home with a nebulizer and continued those treatments on Monday and Tuesday. He will finish up his steroid prescription today. I am so happy to have my sweet baby back and looking forward to this long weekend!!!!
