Random O'ville happenings...

My heart as been so heavy today after reading the news about Stellan. But I still wanted to give an update on what we have been up to.

Zoey is doing better. Her temperature has remained around 102 all day except for a few hours after we give her some Motrin or Tylenol. She hasn't really wanted to eat although she started eating better this evening. She has been drinking, so I wasn't too worried about the not eating. This evening she seemed to have cooled off a good bit so hopefully she will be back to normal tomorrow. Everyone in the O'ville house was up at 5am this morning for one reason or another. So not cool to be up before the sun.

Jon Kent is doing well. He went to his first t-ball practice this evening. Kent is the coach and Zoey is on the team as well, almost she had to miss tonight. Kent said he did well and the whole team practiced well together. They practice again Thursday if the weather permits (it's supposed to rain/storm starting tomorrow and not let up much until Saturday or Sunday). Jon Kent so far hasn't caught what Zoey has/had. He is sneezing a lot but I think it's allergies. The pollen is horrible right now. Hopefully the rain will wash a lot of it away.

Nathan is doing well. He still has his cold. He was wheezing a good bit today but it has since gone away starting this evening. He is walking pretty well right now and is trying to run. He will walk as fast as he can and just giggle. It's the sweetest thing. He is starting to talk, although right now it's just babababa and sometimes mamama although I haven't heard him say mama yet or at least recently. And he also seems to be saying or trying to say bye-bye. I'm not too worried about it, Jon Kent didn't really start talking until he was closer to two. He would say maybe 5-10 words but that was it. He would just grunt and point. Until Zoey started talking. She basically taught him how to talk.. seriously.

I ordered Nathan's first birthday cake today. So sad. And got a lot of his party supplies as well. I mailed his invitations today too. They are so cute. I'll have to take a picture and show y'all but I will have to wait until everyone gets their invites first. Some of them read my blog. We are only having a very small party for him. Great grandparents and grandparents type gathering. No extended family or friends. Just keeping it small this year. Next year maybe we will do something bigger. But he won't care either way. I am sure he will be spoiled rotten no matter what.

Well, there is the update. Very random, I know. Oh, school started back today. Woohoo (sarcasm). Had a test the first day back.. I think I did well though. Anyway, please remember to continue to pray for Stellan.
