I Have an 8 Year Old!

The evening 8 years ago I have my sweet 5lb 2oz boy. I wish I had a digital picture to show how small he was. We named him Jedidiah! He was in the NICU for a week. Then we brought him home. I can't believe he is 8 years old! Time goes by so quickly! Here is a picture of him now!

He is a smart and sensitive child. He loves music and especially singing. He is very curious and is thoughtful. I am so thankful Heavenly Father sent him to us!

What a week!!

It was my first week as an intern.
Things went pretty well. Ideas came to me easier than I thought they would. I learned to use Wordpress. For those that don't know Wordpress is like blogger but it is a lot easier to use. Since I am getting comfortable with Wordpress I decided to move my Danielle's Journey blog over to Wordpress. That was more of a challenge than I thought. I lost all of my comments from my blogger blog but I did get all the posts over to Wordpress. If you check out my Journey blog you will see some changes and it will continue to change this week.

We are sick again!
I can't believe I am even saying this but after I finished antibiotics last Monday I am now sick again! Obviously the antibiotics didn't do the trick. I am coughing and weak again! Today it is better. Also Ian had his six month check up. He got his shots and had a reaction to them. He was very cranky and had a fever of 101.8F. Ian really never cries. I mean that! So this week when he cried for an hour straight I didn't know what to do. I have never had to comfort him. It was really hard to see my happy baby so miserable. After 24 hours he was fine. He is sick with a cough and runny nose. But he is not as miserable as he was after the shots!

Happy Mothers Day!
To all the Mothers out there! I am sure grateful for my mom! She was always there to take care of me. I especially miss having her around when I am sick. She took such good care of me the many times growing up when I was so sick and in the hospital! I am glad I still have her around. I am also grateful for my Mother-in-law! She raised a wonderful family. She is very thoughtful and asks about my family. She doesn't forget birthdays or holidays. I am especially grateful how she raised Charles! He is a great man! He takes such good care of me and is very thoughtful.

Six degrees of Separation

I was talking to Charles recently about six degrees of separation. My sister informed me that this was originally a book. I haven't looked it up yet but I believe her. So I got to thinking this week and realized I am less than six degrees to a lot of people. So her is a few of my degrees of separation. I am now a blogging intern for Kelly McCausey. She is now the General Editor of Sparkplugging.com which is run by Wendy Piersall. I found Kelly through Sparkplugging.com. I found Sparkplugging by watching the Today show one morning when Wendy was on. Now she was interviewed by Meredith Vieira. So I am five or six degrees from a bunch of people that Meridith has interview!! Crazy! Here is another one. I went high school and was good friend with Sharon Scalabrine. I knew her brother Brian Scalabrine who happens to be a NBA player. He plays for the Boston Celtics. So that means I am three-six degrees away from a whole heckuva lot of basketball players. Okay one more my brother-in-law married a great girl in 2007 and her name is Becky maiden name Mortensen. Now Becky has an uncle who is a commentator (or something like that) on ESPN for football. His name is Chris Mortensen. So there you go! Not that any of this makes me better than anyone else. It was fun though. I think we all have connections to people. It may not matter but again it is fun to think about!
