The Adventure Starts Here: Oh Hey, Friday!

Oh Hey, Friday!

I am so glad it's Friday!  It's been a long week where the days have blended into one another.  Chris had to work late a few nights and I'm glad to have him home :). Here's my Friday Five... 


This week Noah has been sick.  It started Sunday evening (actually in the middle of the night).  We were in his big bed and at 2 am he rolled to me to snuggle and I noticed he was burning up.  I didn't want to wake him but decided next time he woke up I would take his temp and give him Tylenol.  At 4 am it was 102.6, I have him Tylenol and when he woke up at 9:30 it was back up to 102.9!  I called the doctor and the nurse said to come in.  Long story short, he had a virus but too soon to know if it was roseola, Coxsackie, or just a regular flu.  She said to keep him hydrated, make sure he's peeing, and give him Tylenol when needed.  We'd give him Tylenol and afyer it wore off his temp would be back... Climbing to 106 at one point.  We slept a lot and ate a lot of Popsicles.  The fever finally was gone by Wednesday even in but a ridiculously stuffed and runny nose (at the same time lol) was left in it's place.  At least now he's back to playing, but still not eating much.  Now I just follow him around with tissues and suck the snot out every once in a while.  Having a sick child is no fun.  It remindede of the newborn stage.. He wanted to be held all the time and napped a lot!

^^^ I love these slow melt Popsicles.  They are mini and perfect for little kids!


While Noah was sick, my mom helped out so much!  She came over to let me shower, brought me lunch and dinner, and even made me banana bread!  Not sure what I'd do without her!

1 cup granulated sugar
8 tbsp butter at room temp
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 325F. 
Butter a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed ingredients and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until the flour disappears.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on rack got 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool before slicing.


Loft is having their friends and family sale.  I got a dress to wear to my brother's rehearsal dinner this fall and some new jeans.  Gotta love 40% off!


Sunday afternoon before Noah got sick, he helped Chris wash both cars.  Noah loved it!  


I was so happy when Noah started feeling better!  It was nice to see him enjoying simple things again like bath, coloring, and going for walks :)
