weekend with Susu

linking up here for Miscellany Monday!

We had a great time this weekend with John's mom. She came in town for a visit (yes, we've had visitors for 3 weekends in a row...we are about to lose our guest room but we love having family in town!)

Saturday we took a trip to Sam's to get a few things. We are working on Hudson holding our hand while walking. He hates it but he's gotta learn. :)

I am always prepared with Hudson's favorite snacks when we go out. He had half water half lemonade in his sippy cup which made him very happy!

When we got back we ate lunch and put together Emma's crib while Hudson napped. I was SO excited to get it into her room!

this isn't the wall it will go on, but we took the queen bed is out of the room today so it is now in the right spot.

Hudson is getting SO close to dropping his morning nap. On Saturday he napped for 1 1/2 hours in the morning and would not take an afternoon nap. So after we got him up he enjoyed some sherbet with Susu. He loved it of course. :)

He was starting to get fussy so Susan took him on a walk. He fell asleep so we just wheeled him back to his room to nap for a little bit. 

Unfortunately, little man woke up with a fever and feeling horrible. Like, he's never really been sick and he did not want to be put down, would lie his head on our shoulders. It was so so sad. 

So we put him in the bathtub with Yo Gabba Gabba on the iPad and a pedialyte popsicle. 

It helped his fever a little but he was still so fussy and clingy the rest of the night. He would have moments when he would play but they wouldn't last long.

About 6:45 I took him to get ready for bed and he let me rock him for almost 30 minutes. SO UNUSUAL for him!!! I usually have time to sit with him to pray and sing 1 song. Then he is ready to get in bed. He was falling asleep while we rocked. I hated that he felt so bad but loved being able to rock him.

I'm so thankful that he slept all night without waking up. He woke up with a 99.6 fever so we stayed home from church and thankfully he's feeling so much better. I think it was his vaccines and flu shot he got on Friday. 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 


  1. You are the second person to mention their child not feeling well after the flu shot. Chelsi and Aiden both felt really bad after the shot and also had fevers. Nikolas and Gregory haven't had it yet. Hope he is feeling better soon.

    Love the crib. Very classic!

  2. Pearson will finally walk while holding our hands and not try to squirm out. It's so nice because now I don't always have to hold him. I love your crib. I think if we have a girl next I want to get a sweet dainty white crib like that. I don't think I would like P's big black crib for a girl. I probably should have thought about that when we bought it. Oh well!!

  3. Now you have me nervous...Adelyn gets her flu shot, etc at her 15mo appt on Friday. Do they give them the full shot now? I know last year they split A's into 2 doses.

    Love Emma's crib! Can't wait to see what you do in her room :)

  4. Hi Lindsay! I've been a hidden reader of your blog for a while... Your family is adorable! Please post about where you found Emma's sweet crib (and maybe some new nursery pictures)... I'm praying this will be something I might want to know in the not too distant future for my family:) I hope Hudson is feeling better!!
