UGH! Being sick is NO FUN! I got sick over a week ago- I think I mentioned this in an entry last week- and as I figured, AJ got it too. I am so thankful that he's been a really happy, sick boy, but he's not sleeping well.

We have a really bad cough, sore throat and are super snotty! YUCK!

The worst part is that we had plans to go to California this weekend which we had to cancel. No sense in getting everyone else sick and being miserable on the road. Big bummer!

The good news is that we have plans to go to California to see Pop & Grammy Cory in 2 weeks and we WILL be better for that!

They aren't long sentences, but he is saying them! And he's trying SO HARD to say new ones daily. I love watching AJ work really hard at new things. It's awesome to see him be so proud of himself. I am super proud of him!

Here are a few things he's been saying:

Bye Bye Choo Choo
Bye Bye Buster (it sounds like Bussus)
Bussus Eat
Hello Daddy
Juice esse? (please)
AJ pee pee (wet diaper)

He still says a lot of things in the wrong order, but I actually think he might know it's out of order when he says it because he keeps trying. For example, he'll say, "Eat Bussus" and then right after, he'll correct it with "Bussus eat".

I find that we can really have some pretty good conversations, so long as I can figure out what he actually means. Many times, what he says takes some time to figure out, but it's actually quite gratifying when I do.

The other thing he's been doing lately is telling these awesome stories. Of course, no one can figure out what he's saying, but he knows! He gets very excited and animated and will look at you like, "you know what I mean, right?"
