"If I just lay here, would you lie with me?"

-"Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol

I'm so tired right now. Grayson hasn't been sleeping well for the past couple of nights and it's starting to add up...for both of us. For a few days he was cranky at night and just wanted to be rocked all night, but yesterday he got all congested and then last night he got a fever. Today I bought one of those nifty thermometers where you drag it across their forehead instead of the other "invasive" kind- you know what I'm talking about ;). Well, it said his fever is 102.6 degrees :( He is finally resting right now, which is how I have hands to type, and it's unusually quiet since Jeff took the older kids with him to finish ripping up some of the old carpet in a rental house my FIL owns. They actually wanted to go with him since the house is empty and there's plenty of room to run. There's also a swing set in the backyard so they actually like visiting this house. I called Jeff a little while ago and I could hear them playing really loudly in the background so I guess it's a good break for all of us :)

Oh yeah, Grayson is pretty much numb to the world or whining about something....except when Dora is on! He still finds the energy to say "map" and "backpack" just like old times :) Maybe he thinks if he didn't speak up baby jaguar would never be saved. Ah, what a sweetheart.

Aww poor Baby Gray, I hope he feels better soon! And I hope you get to sleep. I have been up for a couple of nights too. In fact I think I will go to sleep right now.

That's because Dora and Diego are awesome. We're big fans too!
