Father's Day

I asked Steve what he wanted for Father's Day and he replied "the whole family to run in a 5k." Most dads wouldn't make this strange request but most dads aren't my husband. We did some research and found a family friendly 5k in Hopkinton. Steve did awesome! He was the first runner to cross the finish line pushing a stroller. I don't know how he does it. I did better than I thought but not as good as I used to be. I guess that's what happens when you have a child and work full time. Running 5 times a week goes by the waste side and you run when you can. We had so much fun and it motivated Steve and I to run more races together.

Today, we had Steve's dad and my dad over for lunch. It was nice to get everyone over for a relaxing meal. Lucas slept for 3 hours during their visit but both grandfathers got to spend some quality time with him.

Lucas really is enjoying Father's Day!

Oh...Lucas is now saying "ball." It is so cute!

First Bout with Meds

I got a call from daycare on Tuesday saying Lucas' cough was getting worse and he had a fever. After the pediatrician examined Lucas, he wasn't sure if it was asthma, pneumonia, allergies, or the common cold. Lucas had to have a nebulizer treatment to rule out asthma. After the treatment, the doc concluded that Lucas had a slight case of pneumonia. He rallied like a trooper as we waiting to fill his prescription for a 1/2 hour. However, that night wasn't so fun. Lucas literally did not sleep. We tried everything and finally Steve took Lucas out in the car to see if sitting upright would help him sleep. Well it did help him sleep but as soon as Steve pulled in the driveway, Lucas woke up. Steve took the next day off to watch Lucas so I was like a walking zombie at work. As a working mom you do what you have to do. Lucas is feeling much better and is sleeping through the night again!

Before Lucas' sickness we went to the Southwick's Zoo with some friends. He seemed to enjoy jumping in the puddles more than the animals but I guess that's typical of a 17 month old. Probably the best part of the day was in the petting zoo. He was chasing around the goats and trying to pet them. He even tried to put his head on them like you would with a pillow. The goats really didn't like that too much. I wish I could figure out how to download video to the new computer so you can see it. Oh well maybe I'll try to figure it out during summer vacation (which is in 5 days!)

He really is enjoying the zoo!

This is the best we could manage for a Pevznamian family photo!
