What we've been up to.

Busy weekend! Hubby was in Florida over the weekend so C and I had some mommy and me time. We attended a baby shower for a friend. It's their first and it was fun to share in their joy. She's decided to do cloth diapers, so I'm curious to see how that works out for her. Hubby and I debated going that route, but ended up going with disposables. I'm definitely open to trying it next time and it'd be great to have someone I know that could give me tips.

C enjoyed the baby shower a lot. He flirted with all the ladies and tried to open/eat the presents. I think he thought they were his. But he's just at a stage where he thinks everything is his. You know how that saying goes;

If it's mine, it's mine
If it's yours, it's mine
If I want it, it's mine
If I see it, it's mine
If I touch it, it's mine etc...

Sunday night C got really tired and fell asleep on me right before Hubby got home. This is kind of unusual, but I figured he was just tired because he hadn't taken a very long afternoon nap. When Hubby got home, I noticed C was a bit warm, but I though, "He was laying on me, so it was probably just our body heat." He was super excited to see Daddy, but obviously wasn't himself. Hubby noticed he was warm too so we took his temp and it was over 101.

We gave him some tylenol and a lukewarm bath and put him to bed. Later when we woke him up to give more tylenol his temp was down, but he threw up when I went to give him some milk. Long story short, a trip to Walgreen's at 2am, several more vomiting issues on the carpet and couch, and a doctors visit later, I am happy to report that C is back to his normal self. He is still running a low fever, but he is obviously feeling much better because he is getting into things he shouldn't and generally being ornery.

It's the first time he's had a fever really, so I was pretty concerned. I probably overreacted by wanting to take him to the doctors office, but it was nice for peace of mind. Apparently something like this has been going around and they've seen several kids with it in the last few weeks. The doctor said his fever should clear up in a day or so.

Anyways, our usually active little boy was very cuddly and sleepy yesterday and I snapped this cute pic of him and daddy.

Little blurry. This was the best out of 20 shots. He was starting to feel better and consequently was moving more.

Fell asleep at Gma and Gpa's

Obviously Tigger is well loved. I think he makes it into roughly 50% of C pictures.


  1. I LOVE that picture of hubby and C.on the couch. C's eyes are so blue, and he looks so cuddly and cute! Fluffy as N would say!

  2. Thanks, Mom. Me too! It's one of my favorites!
    C loves his daddy. :)
