Jonathan turned 6 months old yesterday. Unfortunately, I have the flu AND some sort of bacterial infection (just my luck!), so I am totally and completely out of it. I have been away from work for a week, and still, I am sick sick. I am often a little bit sick (allergies, small sniffles types), but I am rarely really sick. But here I am. Totally felled with a bout of the worst flu I have ever had. I was chatting with the doctor, and I mentioned I was in Hong Kong. And she said, "Yeah, most flus come out of that area of the world, so I am not surprised." Great!
So I am in day 8 (or was it 9?) of this terrible sickness... Our house is a disaster AND CHA breathing down my neck. Not pretty at all. I was taking care of Jonathan with a bit of help from D while working until the new nanny started today. I was spending most of the day waving and talking to J from across the room so I will not infect him as well. Poor kiddo. I think he thinks I do not like him anymore. Even when I am feeding him with the bottle, I need to avert my face just in case I sneeze or cough on him. :(
Here is Jonathan on a Hong Kong MTR subway. I am putting into a HOF page, but I thought I would share. It was New Year's Eve at 11:30 pm when I took this photo. He is strapped onto his daddy for a night on the town. We met up with some friends for some traditional Chinese dessert, and then took the MTR to Times Square. J took it all very well. Hong Kong is a pretty tame place, though you may not know it watching all of those crazy triad movies David loves watch. If you ever watched The Departed, you know what I mean.
Give me 2 more days to recover, and I will start posting our sneak peeks for CHA Winter. Caroline and I are totally sick, so we are trying to get as much done as possible, but it is not easy. I cannot wait to share out cool new sneaks!
