A few days in Michigian

Hey Everybody!
I hope everyone had a good conference this past weekend. It's weird having to either watch online or go to the stake center for it! Well, dunh, dunh, dunh... it's finals week for Jared(they do two modules per semester in business school)and so to get out of his way and to leave him more time to study I took Miles and went to Michigain to visit my friends, Kim and Josh and their four children. They were in our ward in Murray and Josh decided in spite of having a B.S. and and M.S. in accounting to go to law school to be a tax attorney! Needless to say it helped me realize how lucky I am to only have one child while Jared is in grad-school! Poor Kim has it ten times harder than I do and Josh is going to be in school for 3 years.
But I had so much fun. We went berry picking at a raspberry farm and apple picking at an orchard and did some shopping for Miles for next summer.

*If any of you are interested, Sears was having a major end of summer sales rack! The best deal I got was a pair of shorts for $.29 cents! I got 6 pair of shorts and most of them were under a dollar, plus 8 shirts and 2 pairs of sandels all for $17.00!*

The only down part was that Miles woke up sick yesterday! This is his first time being sick, and I knew it was too good to last but I feel very grateful that he made it to 6 months without getting anything. At least he slept well on the way home. Poor little guy has a slight fever and stuffy nose. I bet he had sneezed 200 times in the last day and a half! I have a nasal spray that I'm giving him, but does anyone have other advice? Ironically, his sixth month well-check visit and shots are tomorrow. Does anyone know if they can be sick when they get shots? I can't call because the doctor's office is closed on Thursdays. Oh, and the weather finally turned cold out here! It was 80 degrees on Tuesday and on Wednesday it suddenly turned 55 degrees overnight! Well, just wanted to share the info about the sale at Sears and ask for any sick baby advice. -Much love, Heather

Hey Heather! They say it is ok if they get the shots with a runny nose or if they are sick, but I didn't because if they have an allergic reaction then it is hard to tell if it is the the virus/cold they have or if it is the shot that they recieved that is just my opinion, and so you can really do what you want. Plus every doctor is diffrent!

Hey Heather,

Yes, it's o.k. to get shots if you want him to. Also when Allie got sick (she had the same symptoms that you described) it helped to have a humidifier in her room and to rub Baby Vick's on her chest before she went to bed at night. I'm not sure if you need a humidifier living in Indiana...but I would definitely try the Baby Vick's. I hope Miles gets better fast!!! Good Luck to Jared on his finals. :)
