Feeling...HOT, HOT, HOT!!

Interesting week... After a fun Fourth of July weekend, Harrison woke up with a fever on Monday and wanted to just be held for the next two days which was perfectly fine with me. Not the him being sick part...the me getting to cuddle him all day part : )

A few days later, it was my turn. My temp spiked and was accompanied by a searing sore throat (not just itchy), a nagging headache and sever leg cramps. The fear that often grips me when I feel even the slightest symptoms of any ailment is that I will end up at "club med," otherwise known as the hospital. I doubled my USANA and basically hit the sack. Ryan and my mom rallied and took care of Harrison, meals, laundry and the house so I could sleep, eat, do my treatments, take warm baths, sleep and sleep some more. I am so grateful that I really feel like I have turned the corner and am out of the danger zone as far as needing to call my clinic and take action. Miraculously, my lungs still feel as clear as they did before my symptoms started so I am going to keep on resting and hopefully bounce back to full capacity in a few days.

We have lots of fun things coming up that I have been looking forward to for months so my prayers have really been answered this time! On our Calendar this month: Coldplay concert, Suedy visiting, Chelsea, Cam and the kids FINALLY get here and mom's birthday... too many things to miss out on so I am determined to beat this bug FAST!

Speaking of rest, I am off to bed but before I go, here are a few of my favorite pictures from the Fourth of July:






Harrison managed to look away as I snapped every single picture that day. This is his new thing, running away when I pull out the camera (hmmm, who did he get that from?!) Any tips on getting a stubborn little boy to stay in one place long enough to get a quick shot? Hopefully you can still appreciate the adorable patriotic outfit. I couldn't resist the baseball shirt as I knew how much Ryan would love it and he did!

Sorry you got the bug! Harrison is ADORABLE! We have the same photo problem with Benjamin. Lately we get A LOT of profile shots. I try holding a book or a toy above the camera to see if it'll catch his eye long enough for me to snap a photo. But usually it's no dice. I just hope he outgrows it! We think about you guys TONS and hope you're doing ok.
