catching up

i am sitting in a dark hotel room while levi is sleeping. jason had a work thing and wanted me to come along. great for the drive! not so much now that he's in his meeting and levi and i are in the hotel room. anyway...its been a while since i've blogged. we had a great holiday season. we spent thanksgiving in tulsa with jason's family. we celebrated christmas in st. louis with my family. it was great to be home and always fun for the family to enjoy time with levi. our christmas trip was busy and short...but we had a great time. this was levi's first christmas...he didn't really get into it like i thought he would...but i think next year he will. we got back to our house the day after christmas. we flew into tulsa, did christmas with jason's parents and then drove the 3 hours home to lawton. during all of that traveling, levi was a trooper. we were home for 3 days, and then back on the road. we spent new year's in tulsa and saturday morning, i received the call that my grandmother had passed away. i knew the call was coming, it was just a matter of time. while i'm sad that she's gone, it brings great comfort knowing that she's in heaven now, rejoicing with Jesus. we headed back to lawton sunday night and then flew back to st. louis tuesday. the visitation was tuesday night, and the funeral was wednesday. we flew back to lawton thursday and now we're an hour and a half from home in lone dell, oklahoma. i'm so ready to be back home...for good. its taken a toll on levi. he's cutting his molars and just hasn't been himself since new year's. he's cranky, feverish, and just overall miserable. our happy, talkative baby is now whiny, grumpy and unhappy. i hate seeing him like this and i'm praying its over soon.
