Also, the inhaler with the mask is a major fight each time. He screams when you come at him with that mask like you are beating him. I can only imagine what our neighbors think. After all of this, Ryan and I are not convinced that Colt has asthma. I believed it at first, thinking maybe he did due to his family history, but after 5 days of the medicine and no change, I am not sure. His coughing is not wheezy, but congested. We're going to keep trying the medicine, but I am wondering how long we it should be before it begins to help. Poor kid is coughing his guts up.
Other than that, we had a good weekend. Saturday night, my dear friend Lindsey and I went to ArtsyU. It's a painting class type place. I had been before and LOVED it, so I was excited to go back. This time we painted "Venetian Windows" and both of our paintings turned out great. Now I just have to find a place to hang it! :) If you haven't been, go! They are often featured on Groupon, which I highly recommend because it is half price that way! I can't wait to go back again!
This is my painting!
Friends since the first grade!
Sunday was full of church and eating with family and friends, as it should be. :) Yesterday, Colt and I stayed home all day. It was a clean the house/watch movies/do laundry kind of day. It was also the day that Colt climbed out of his crib for the first time. He has been really close a time or two, but he's never actually gone all the way. Granted, I was in the room and was watching him from the floor and he was coming TO me. I realize most 2 year olds are probably already out of their cribs, so I guess it's almost time to change him to a toddler bed. I can just hear the thump he's going to make when he falls out of his crib if we don't change soon. ;)
That's what is going on in the Doolittle house this week. Nothing major this week, just getting ready for the MRI a week from today. We have to be there at 6:30 and we'll be the first one they do I was told when they called yesterday. The lady told me it will take about 2 1/2 hours total, so we should be out well before lunch. It will be done at Erlanger, not at Children's, but I am not sure why. Maybe we'll hear something about the results next week. I hope so!
I just want to take a second and say thanks to all who have been following along with Colt's journey. I know there are a few of you, my last 2 blog posts were 3 "reads" shy of 200 each! Thank you all, thank you for your prayers and support and kind words of encouragement. I have had 3 different people approach me recently at church and tell me that they love to keep Colt in the nursery because he is so sweet and loving. He has been through a lot already by age 2 and he is turning into such a wonderful, smart, sensitive, snuggly little boy. I accredit that to the many people who love him, teach him, support him (and his parents!), and pray for him. Thank you, thank you, thank you all. :)
