A Big Help

Yesterday, I was packaging some photos for some clients (you can see my new packaging here) and Greyson was "helping" me!  :)

Nana + More Sickness

Sorry its been so long since I've posted, but its been crazy around here!  Dan's mom was here for a week, and it was great to have her visiting.  She was such a help watching Greyson and I think she had fun spending quality time with him in the super warm weather!  Here are a couple of shots of her feeding him one morning at breakfast.

And then for the "sickness" part of this post.  I don't think Greyson ever really got over the ear infection he had a couple of weeks ago, and it turned into a cough that rattles his chest pretty bad.  So, at the Dr this week, instead of getting his shots he got a diagnosis of "bronchiolitis" and a prescription for a breathing treatment.  So, we have to do the breathing treatment every 4 hours while he is awake, and hopefully that will clear up his lungs.  Here are some of him getting his treatment.

And this is him from tonight...he was really tired :)

This post is kind of a mish mash of what we've been up to the last few days/weeks.  Besides being sick, we've been pretty "business as usual" with nothing exciting to report.  Here are a few photos of the latest...

Dave Ramsey told us that we need to get rid of debt and if we can't afford to pay for a nice car we shouldn't be paying for a nice car.  Well, if we squeezed every drop out of our paychecks, we could have kept paying for the wonderful Accord that I loved so much, but we decided it was more important for me to be home with Greyson and for us to get rid of our debt.  SO, we sold the Honda.  sigh...That was such a great car.  We bought it with our future family in mind.  We brought Greyson home from the hospital in it.  We took so many great trips in that car.  But, now we are not paying for it anymore!  And, we were totally blessed with a great little civic that Dan can drive back and forth to work and it only has 57k miles on it!  Yay!  So, here are some photos of the cute little guy...

Next up are some photos of the boy trying to eat bananas and blueberries with his hands.  He's not too great at finger foods just yet, and bananas were kind of an unintentional mean trick on my part.  Every time he grabbed them they would just smash in his fingers and fall all over his shirt.  Made for some pretty great pictures though :)

oh mom why are you so mean?!

These are some funny shots I snapped of Greyson and Dan sleeping while they were sick.  Like father, like son...

Greyson helping me with the laundry the other day...now only if he could help fold and put away!!

And these are from today when we went to the park to enjoy the sunshine :)

Also today, Greyson had his 6-month well baby check.  No shots because his ears are still red and infected, but the Dr. said he looks awesome and is doing great on all his milestones!  We are so proud of him!  He weighed in at a whopping 19 lbs 5 oz (85th %tile) and measured 25.5" (83rd %tile).  We are slowly moving down in the charts, but still a really big boy!

Thanks for checking in!

So we have a house full of sickies this week.  Dan has had the flu (we think) on and off for about 2 weeks now.  Its been really special.  We thought we kept him far enough away from Greyson to prevent the boy from getting sick, but Friday Greyson's runny nose turned into a hacking cough and by Saturday afternoon/evening his fever peaked at 103.7.  That freaked me out a little so I called the Dr. who said to take him in if it didn't go down.  We gave him a cool bath & tylenol, and tried to get him to eat, but by 11:00 it was still above 103.  So we took him to the overnight urgent care and they got us in and out pretty quick.  By 12:45 we were on our way home with a diagnosis of an ear infection and a prescription for amoxocillin.  Greyson's first real sickness.  Poor baby.  Sunday he seemed to be feeling better and finally took a real nap Sunday afternoon.  This morning he seems better and is sleeping as I type.  However, Dan is on his way back from work again because his fever is back and he feels terrible.  In all of this I came down with a sore throat and body aches yesterday, but I seem to be doing better today.  I suppose God knows that the sicky boys need someone to take care of them... *sigh*
