Showing Our Colors

Liam turned 23 months on last Thursday, the day after we laid my dear grandfather to rest. Unfortunately for Liam, he spent the day feeling pretty bad. I found out from daycare that Liam was exposed to a child with HIB - a bacterial form of meningitis. I took him to the doctor to get some antibiotics. I was just beginning to feel bad myself, but I didn't get a chance to see the doctor.

Friday morning we went to my mom's lake cottage. I felt pretty sick all day, but managed to join in a little. We walked around the lake and stopped at a yard sale. Liam amused us with his patriotic "hat" that he made at school (check out his cool socks too!). He also played with a pretend firecracker that he and I made, which was a decorated paper towel roll stuffed with sparkling red, white, and blue pom-pons. He made the pom-pons "pop" out the firecracker and then stuffed them back in again.

Most of our time was spent talking and lounging around outside. The weather was really nice, but a little chilly for July. Even so, Liam did wade in the lake for a while. He had lots of fun splashing mommy and grandma with water. In the evening we watched the neighbor's fireworks. Liam was a little worried by the noisy ones, but we reassured him that they were "fun booms".

Saturday morning, Liam and I went for a paddle with grandma in our canoe. Before we got around the lake, my aunt, uncle and cousins, grandma and aunt Chris arrived. We spent a little time with them before heading home. I was too sick to be much fun.
