And We're Back...

Holy MOLY its been a busy month! I'm sorry for the hiatus, but I'm hoping to get back on the posting band wagon now that our summer is in a groove. May is a super busy month for my job and with all the traveling we did the first few weeks in June, I hardly slept no less blogged. :-)

Here is a quick run down of what we've been up to...

We battled croup another double ear infection before finally getting an ENT appointment to talk about tubes. The doctor said C was a great candidate for tubes since his adenoids were blocking his ears from draining properly. He had also lost a lot of his hearing (temporarily) because of the ear infections, which is probably why he had been saying fewer words lately.

C went through a phase where he only wanted to sleep on the floor of his room. He'd drag all of his blankets to the floor and happily fall asleep. Whatever floats your boat, kid.

I traveled to Colorado for a work thing and it. was. beautiful. Just wow. I wish my boys could have come with me, but alas - they had a boys weekend while I was away.

Shortly after my return, C went in to get tubes put in and his adenoids taken out. He took it like a champ! By that afternoon he was back to normal and went back to day care the next day. He has been 100% healthy since June 5th!! ::knocks on wood::

C's Godfather (and J's childhood best friend) got married and we traveled to Maryland for the wedding. It was beautiful! So nice to see everyone and spend some time with the happy couple.

We spent a week at camp and had a blast. C went tubing and canoeing for the first time (despite hating his life jacket at first) and enjoyed his first camp fire and s'more. We can't wait to go back next summer!

C started a new day care here in town and we're really enjoying it so far. He only goes part time for a little socialization since J is off work for the summer. 

J is still on the job hunt, but he has a lot of applications out and we're keeping our fingers crossed!

This past weekend was a bit of a trip as well - we spent some time with friends in Maryland for some good food and good fun. Sunday we spent lots of time at the pool, which C absolutely loves.

C has had a little learning explosion lately. He has a ton of words back that he'd lost and a few new ones. He's now saying Mommy, car, Mickey, monkey, more (with the sign), EIEIO (when we're singing Old McDonald), go (when he wants to go outside), and yay! There are a few others I can't remember right now, but it seems like there are more each day.


  1. Sorry, but I giggled at the life jacket photo. So hilarious! Welcome back. :)

    1. Oh, don't worry. We laughed almost to tears. Hehe He takes himself way too seriously.

      Thanks, I'm happy to be back!
