Christmas Continues!

Rounds 1 and 2 are complete of our holiday season. The boys have been having a blast, but definitely started getting a bit tired from all the running. They actually fell asleep on the ride home last night (Wednesday) and were NOT happy with us when we woke them up to get into the house for meds and bed at 9pm.
They had a birthday party this afternoon that Jason brought them to while I stayed home and packed. We put them to bed an hour early tonight since they have to get up early again to catch our flight to St Louis tomorrow.
Jax's upset tummy from his cold came back a bit stronger these past few days. We even had to pull over on the highway on the way home last night. So, we ran him into the pediatrician today to get checked out before going on this trip. He's on day 13 of cold symptoms, so we wanted to make sure he didn't start an ear infection, which would also be a clue as to why his vomiting has come on stronger. But, he checked out fine, so that's great. The doc gave us an Rx for an antibiotic to start him on if he doesn't improve over the weekend, which would mean a possible sinus infection, but we're hoping we won't need to use it.
The doc also suggested we add in his old inhaler (Flovent) during his cold symptoms in addition to the Albuterol nebs we've been giving. It's been two weeks of daily nebs, blah, we'd like the cold to go away!
We really can't complain though. The holiday season is treating us well and we're looking forward to the weekend by Auntie Christa's house. I'm sure we'll have great photos!

I asked Jax to take off his pj's while I got him medication ready. I walked back to this. Naturally.
