Gus is into everything! He is like one of those wind up toys that go crazy and move around everywhere- the difference, though, is that he doesn't wind down! He pulls everything he can reach off of shelves, out of cupboards, out of boxes; nothing can be 'in its place' when he is around. It is exhausting chasing after him- and the tornado the little monster leaves behind. He has started taking 3-4 steps at a time, but still prefers to crawl. He is also starting to get a top tooth- it hasn't broken through yet, but it is very very close.
I have been pretty sick lately. Last Friday I had flu like symptoms, with a temperature that even reached about 104. And then was left with a horrible cough and ear aches and head aches. I went to the Dr. yesterday afternoon after work and I have bronchitis and double ear infections. They also tested me for swine flu, since I had every single symptom and it has hit Kansas. Luckily, the preliminary test appeared to be negative, so there was no need to test me further. Needless to say, it has been a long week. I am so busy with work since the semester is wrapping up that is has been impossible to take a day off, and I am home with Gus half of the time and he is so active there is just no resting for me. But, I am on an antibiotic now, have an inhaler, and have some strong cough medicine for the evenings, so hopefully things will begin to look up. I am exhausted.
