So at 8am I called the doctor and got him to be looked at. Sadly, RSV has been going around lately and so the doctor wanted to test Braden for that. Sure enough that is what he had. If you don't already know what that is, it is a virus common for infants to get and lasts 4-6 WEEKS, thats right weeks NOT days. SO runny nose, sore throat, and cough are the most common symptoms all of which Braden has...except the sore throat I am not sure about that one since he has not complained of that to me yet...but we will see. lol
This is just what we need right now, I mean we have already had one cold, sore throat, two ear infections, the flu, and now RSV. I guess he will build his immune system and be a healthy adult, at least one can only hope.
At least the doctor gave us some medicine to reduce the symptoms. I gave Braden some of it right away and within in thirty minutes he was out, and I mean he was OUT. He took a FIVE hour nap today, which was perfect for me so I could just keep working from home. I got a lot done while he slept.
So wish us luck for the next six weeks as we continue to use the snot sucker every hour...he really hates that part! I mean hates....lots of yelling and screaming. Baths should help to clear things up so he can breathe though. We just have to keep an eye on him so it doesn't get worse, and we can't take him to church this next Sunday.
This too shall pass....

Braden turned one year old on March 2nd! You can see how big he is getting and how he is looking like such a little man! We chose to celebrate his big day when his Grammy and Auntie Meg and cousin Kaylee arrived...March 5th. BUT we did take a few photos on the actual day.
We had a dino themed birthday party for Braden. Grammy helped to pull of this dino event. We had "Baby Rex Ribs", teradacktal tenders (chicken), and dinosaur eggs (twice baked potatoes)...oh and dino shaped chicken nuggets for the little kids. Making Braden's cake was fun, we decided to make two different ones...
I was able to get a really good video of Braden walking..since he began this just a week or so ago.
Braden loved the party, he is just a real outgoing kid and he joined in with the dancing groups of others in our ward.
The next day, which was Valentine's Day and my 25th Birthday..yippee was also a good one.
Brian made breakfast for me: waffles, with strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries with whipped cream...and a side of bacon. We then spent the remainder of the afternoon relaxing a bit, then i got some fun gifts from Brian, Braden and David....new purse, shirt, and necklace....cute shoes from my sis and new make up from Vickie's from my mom and dad.
Brian and I then went into Idaho Falls and did some shopping then went to dinner at Ruby River Steakhouse. Good day. I am gratefull to have such a wonderful family and sweet husband. I love you all!
