Last Thursday Jaydon got the opportunity to spend some time at the Otranto Road Regional library. After looking at some children’s books Jaydon decided he wanted to checkout a video.
Jaydon has a computer Wall-E toy and book so he was excited when he found a move about the little robot. He walked around the rest of the time at the library holding the video until I was ready to checkout.
When we got home I put the video into the DVD player as Jaydon sat down in his favorite chair. This was the first full length move Jaydon had ever tried to watched and sure enough he got board half way through it. But a long movie did not stop Jaydon from liking Wall-E. He still plays with the computer toy and reads book and from time to time.

This year the finale was held at Riverfront Park. We got to enjoy some great food as we listened to the band Rivers & Company play a mix of R&B, Motown, beach, jazz, and up-tempo dance party favorites. Jaydon also got to see HomeSpun Hoops preform and then was able to burned off some toddler energy in a Jump Castle with his little friend Ryley.
Jaydon really enjoyed the listening to the music. He ran up to the stage where he could see the band play. Jaydon would even dance occasionally to the music.
At 9:00 pm the Festival ended with a fireworks display. Jaydon and Ryley were awestruck with the bright lights but quickly got upset with the load boom of the fireworks. We quickly packed up and headed to the car.
Even though the boys did not like the fireworks show at the end everyone still had a great time at the Arts Festival Finale.

Last Thursday morning Jaydon woke up hot and complaining. I could tell he had a headache and possibly his body ached as well. He spent the day either in bed or in his chair watching the kids show “Deigo.”
Later that night Jaydon did not sleep much and neither did I. Every time he woke up mommy or I would go in his room and give Jaydon some water and then rock him back to sleep.
We originally thought Jaydon had a fever but on Friday our family doctor said his temperature was 97.8. This meant Jaydon most likely has a cold.
Buy Friday evening Jaydon’s headache and high body temperature had subsided some. Unfortunately it was not enough to stop Jaydon from waking up several more times at night coughing and complaining.
Saturday Jaydon started sneezing and on Sunday he had developed a runny noise.
When I started to write this blog post Sunday night I could hear Jaydon over the baby monitor in his bed coughing. Now as I finish he is quite. Before putting Jaydon down for the night we gave him some medicine just as we had the last couple of nights.
I hope Jaydon sleeps through the night and wakes up happy and healthy Monday. If not then I will get up again to rock and comfort Jaydon back to sleep.
Jaydon finally made it through the night without waking up. Although he is still in bed as I post this update at 11:00am. Jaydon woke up a couple of times this morning but did not want to get up. Instead he went back to sleep. If Jaydon is not up by noon I will have to get him up. At least his coughing has stopped and he no longer feels hot.
11:30am … Jaydon called me from his room. He’s finally up and eating cereal. His cough is still there but it’s not as bad as the day before.
