My New Decade!

Hey everyone,

Tuesday the 13th was my 20th birthday. I didnt have time to take a paid day off from work, but it so happened that i had a really bad migraine headache that day. So i called in. :-) I had a pretty good day. i slept in till 11 or so and then lazed around for a lil bit. Then Kyle took me to dinner at Applebees. My friend Timara went with us too. Then we all went shopping later in the evening. It being a weekday, nothing was nearly as crowded as normal. It was a pretty nice layed back day!I got a lot of text messages and calls saying happy birthday. So it was nice. Me and Timmi at Applebees

I got to thinking that day tho. (you all are going to get some insight on my life) I got to thinking about the last ten years of my life. Its crazy to think how much i have done and how fast and slow it all went, if you know what i mean. I remember turning ten. It seems like a long time ago. We lived in California then. We had a big party in the churches fellowship hall! lol. Then when i turned 12, we moved here. I didnt want to leave all my friends in Cali, and i hated my parents for making us leave. Lets just say that the first year or so here wasnt so good for me and sarah. 5th - 6th grade is a bad time to move. When i was 14 we started at Columbus Christian school and started playing a bunch of sports year round and it seemed like the time flew by because we were going non-stop! Sarah and I played basketball, volleyball, softball(2teams), tennis and cheerleading. It was a busy schedule. We stayed there thru 9th grade and we decided that we wanted to go to publice school. It was the best decision. We already knew a bumch of people from before we went to CCS, so we werent strangers. I had a couple boyfriends and sarah had been dating this one guy for a LONG time. I dated this one guy, Justin O'Connell and we got close, so when he died in a car accident at the age of 17, everyone was devestated. But luckely i had someone to help me through it! Kyle was there for me through the whole thing. Justin and Kyle had known each other when they were little. So the past couple of years have gone by pretty quickly and here i am 20 years old with a son and graduated high school, ready for this new chapter in my Life. I hope it brings love and happiness and that it will go by slowly, because i have learned to cherish my time.

Sickness and the Doctor

After the holidays i noticed that Matthew was starting to get sick. He didnt have a fever or anything, just some sneezing and a lil cough. Well this past monday i took him into the doctor for them to check it out. Matthew's doctor wasnt there so we had to see someone esle. The doc we saw checked Matthew out and he said " Its just a cold. He will be fine in a couple of days."At the doctors Monday

HA. So much for those words. On my birthday(Tuesday), we decided to stay the night with my friend Timara and while we were there Matthew started wheezing horribly and coughing! So the next morning i called and took him to the doctor again. Yet again Matthews doc was not there so we had to see someone else but it turned out ok because we got to see the doctor that Matthew had had at the hospital. So Dr. Larson checked him out and he said that Matthew had an upper resportory infection and he gave him a scrpit for some antibiotics. Unfortunately i had to go to work, so mom and dad had him all day. He wasnt going ANYWHERE. So i come home and start to put him to bed, his cough sounds horrbile and he feels warm, so i think to myself, "i will take his temp first."

Good thing i did .It was 102.4 . I was like oh my godness. Now i know that thats not that high. But for a baby of Matthews age it has room for concern so i give him a colder bath and some tyenol to try and get it down and that wouldnt work. So i end up calling the nurse hotline. They tell me to take him to the emergency room. Of course this was at 2 o clock in the morning. So we go and get checked out. His temp was still 102. The doctor comes in and listens to him cough a couple times and tells me that Matthew has Crupe. :_( (cry symbol). The nurses and everyone on the night shift thought he was the cutest thing even tho he didnt feel good. The nurse gave him a steriod shot, which would help take the swelling in his throat down and the some tyenol and we were on our way home. We got home around 4 30 am. (i shortened this past part, everyone was SuPeR nice and kind. Not at all the rush in and out thing).
In his gown. Cute but sad.(top)
In Mommy's Arms. (bottom)

Today he is still feeling bad. The shot has helped him some. I feel so bad for him. He is really fussy. He goes to cry or make a noise and nothing comes out, but you can tell it hurts him to even try that and he just makes a face that tells you hes in pain. So everyone, please, pray for him to get better soon!

We love and miss you all
Ps i will post bout my birthday tomorrow. im too tired right now

Well hi everyone
So christmas was good this year but it was very busy! We ate breakfast at Harold and Annettes. She made biscuits and gravy, which were awesome as usual! Then we all headed to my parents house ofr our christmas there. Matthew ended up sleeping through the whole gift opening but he woke up in time for lunch(dinner) and he got to play in his new toys! Kyle and I got him the jumper (the video) and grandma and grandpa kennedy got him a swing! Kyle loved the jacket and benie he got from my family, and i loved my external harddrive. So after the gifts, we had lunch. Then we all packed up and headed to Harold and Annettes to open gifts there. Matthew got a lot of cute clothes, and a swing for his use here, and a oranament from Burckhardts(thanks guys). Kyle got wireless headphones, a calender, and a tv series from me. And i got a bunch of books that i wanted and a sweater that i love. By the time that everything was done and over we were TIRED. lol... well i keep the pics and posts coming. Hope you all had some great holidays
