Jacob was sick Labor Day weekend. We visited my parents on that Saturday, and he felt warm that evening when we got home. The next morning he was burning up, so we took his temperature. Sure enough, he had a 101 fever, and maintained it for the next 3 days. He loved staying home with Mommy on Tuesday and Wednesday! We had so much fun! On Tuesday I took him to Toys R Us with me to get a toddler bed for him. We converted his crib into a full size bed in June, 2008. Andrew is still in the pack 'n play in our room, and we're not quite ready to move Jacob upstairs. We have always wanted to get the boys bunk beds, and he's not big enough yet to be upstairs by himself with the bunk beds. SCARY! So we decided to get the toddler bed and convert the full size bed back into the crib and put both boys in the nursery. Jacob absolutely loves his "cool" new bed and has not fallen out of it (I thought he would since he had so much more room in the other bed). The sheet set and bed have a Cars theme, so he's totally in love with it! I hope to convert the bed back to a crib this weekend. Jacob and I also hit the grocery store and Target to get birthday presents for Anna and Mia. He was a perfect angel for me!
Needless to say, when he had to go back to school on Thursday he was not happy. He told me Thursday morning, "Andrew go to school." I told him, "Jacob and Andrew are going to school today." "NO! NO! NO!" Brian said that Ms. Little, Jacob's teacher, had to literally pry Jacob off of him. Friday was a little better, but then we had a weekend. Oh yeah, and my Mondays off began on September 14. So when he saw that I was not getting ready to go to work on that Monday, he thought he was going to stay home with me. So Brian had to deal with two more days of meltdowns at school. Jacob is finally doing better now.
I have several videos and pictures to post. I have a video of Andrew laughing; Jacob playing like he is the pizza man; Jacob pretending to be Buzz Lightyear; and pictures of the boys in their Halloween costumes. I just keep forgetting to bring my camera to work!
