Sickness Engulfs the Singh Househould

Yes, we are all sick. We went camping last weekend anyway. I ended up getting worse (you should have heard me on Sunday). I could not breath, throat was sore, voice was hoarse, all the good stuff. =( And then Connor started to get the runny nose and watery eyes on Sunday too so we left early. I felt so bad I got two pictures taken the whole weekend. Two. One Two. :sigh: Oh well. There will be another camping trip. Oh well. I am feeling better now but my nose is still congested a lot. But I feel 200% better. Connor seems to be doing better too. I can't wait for Spring to come and the cold season to go bye-bye!!!

Small World

Ok, this is a VERY small world. So I've been dealing with this lady at work (Susanna) regarding our documents that are in the sub basement. So anyway, we got that delt with and I don't work on that with her anymore but we still run into each other in the hallway, etc. She has a 3 year old boy and a 10 month old girl so we have things in common so we always ask how the kids are. Well today we are talking and I don't remember how we got on the subject I started talking about daycare and how Connor is in daycare in La Palma. Then she asks me where and I tell her. And then she's all is the lady's name Tina? I'm like yeah. She says her son goes there too!!!! How funny is that??? He is only there 2 times a week because her husband stays home with the kids but he is there to socialize and play the two days. Surbjit has seen the kid and the husband and knows who I am talking about. Small world huh?!?

Blog It Challenge Week 2!

Who needs some loving words from you the most in your life right now? What would you say to that person? Put it up on your blog and let your sentiments run free for a day of love!

Here's a quote I find to inspire you:

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get . . .
Only with what you are expected to give. . . .
Which is everything.

Katharine Hepburn

Ok, right now this would have to be my son. He is in the growing stages of learning about everything and getting into so much! He still needs to hear that I love him no matter what. I think at this stage in his life, if he continues to get hugs and kisses and hear me say I love him then he will grow up a happy and well adjusted child (at least I hope!). And I can learn so much from him right now too. He has unconditional love. He will come up to me and just hug my legs. I love it when he does that. It is the sweetest thing in the world. Or like last night when I came home from work. Connor and Surbjit were in Connor's bedroom playing. After he heard the door open and me come in the house, he walked down the hallway to the front door and said hi to me! (Ok he didn't really say hi but he was telling me something! Although right now I have NO idea what that was! LOL!) But he gives love and expects nothing in return right now. If we could all learn that, this world would be a much better place!!!

Blog It Challenge

Digishak has a challenge where you are supposed to blog about something that they have told us to. This week it is to blog about the following quote:

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.

Eleanor Roosevelt

This quote makes me think of Connor. He is just a baby who is starting out with no fear who is trying to learn everything that he can. And getting into trouble too! He wants to try everything even if I keep telling him no. I don't do this. I'm a chicken when it comes to new things. Status quo is what works for me and keeps me in my comfort zone. I need to break out of that. Because when I do, I have a lot of fun! I need to take some of what Connor does and apply it my life so I can get those exeperiences that he is having. It's amazing what I am learning from that little kid!!!

Four Generations Get Together

Well, I've e-mailed out pictures from camping in January and the relatives visit in January also. If you haven't gotten the pictures, please e-mail or leave me a comment with your e-mail address and I'll get them to you. I'm trying to get everything together so I can do it faster from now on. =) So bear with me.

Here is a scrapbook page that I did of the four generations! I really enjoyed making this page. It was so much fun!!

We had a great visit with everyone! I'm just sad I didn't get any pictures of Connor with Uncle Al, Aunt Dorothy or Ace. But it was kinda hard to even get this picture as Connor did not want to sit still. He's a very active little boy!!

He is feeling much better and back to normal now. We went to Uncle's/Bigi's house last night and he had fun running around there. So much fun that he wouldn't take a nap. He was whipped when we were leaving. Fell straight to sleep on the way home. He sure does wear himself out! I think he is getting ready to get his molar's in. I was feeling inside his mouth and his gums are swollen and I can feel a little sharpness. That could explain all the drolling! LOL! So anyway, that's what's new in Connor's world!!

I'm really not sure how many people read this blog. OK, I know Surbjit does, and Grandma and Bigi but that's about it I think. So I'm giving a forwarning. I am going to turn this into a scrapbooking/Connor blog. =) I really want to get more into scrapbooking and I've found some great sites that are going help me and hopefully I'll get to meet some great people that can help me hone (sp?) my skills. So far I've found lots of inspiration. Now I just need to do it. And of course what better subject to scrapbook than Connor. =) So I will share my LO's (layout's) and stuff here so if you start hearing me talk about scrappin' that is why. Just wanted to give a heads up. =D

Didn't I say I'd get in here more often. :< Well, I have had a sick kid on my hands. We took Connor to urgent care on Sunday. He had some white bumps in his mouth and it hurt him when you touched his tongue. The Dr. diagnosed him with hand, foot, mouth disease. I still don't think that's what he had. Anyway, so we kept him home Monday - Wednesday. I ended up taking him back to the dr on Tuesday because he was just sounding so horse and crying and not feeling well. Basically all they said was he has an upper respirtory infection (a cold). Well gee, thanks. I just love our health care system. I feel like I am the one that has to go in and tell the doctor what I want done or what I need done. There is no, let's see what's going on, it's a you tell me what to do mentality. I understand in this day and age that we have all these resources so for the most part we can figure out what's going on, but I would like a seperate unbiased opinion. Is that too much to ask? So anyway, we kept him home on Wednesday and he was almost back to his normal self. He finally started eating again and drinking water too. He hardly ate anything on Tuesday. I can't blame him because I'm sure his throat hurt. So I hope he's over the worst part.

Other than that, not much new going on. He might be teething again. It's almost time for his molars to be coming in. He's been drooling BUCKETS too. He has this new dance that he does when he hears music. It's kinda like stepping back and forth. I call it the football shuffle. =) I will try to get it on camcorder but everytime he sees it, he makes his picture face of scrunching up his nose and opening his mouth wide and coming straight for the camera. Funny but annoying! He is also liking to climb anything he can. If he could put his knee up on the sofa, he'd be climbing it all the time. Only a little while longer and he'll be tall enough!!

I still have some pictures from our last camping trip and the visit from Great-Grandma, Ace, Uncle Al and Aunt Dorothy I want to share. We just got a new computer so I was waiting for that. So bear with me. We are using two computers right now so it get a little confusing. Once we set up the wireless network we should be good to go. =) And I'll have no more excuse. :~p
