Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

All was nice and quiet... so I knew something had to be up....I turn and look for River and I see....

More 007

Apparently he feels diapers are over rated. LOL

We bought him new diapers the other day and they just came in the mail. They are velcro instead of snaps and as you can see he had NO problem figuring them out :)

If you give a River a cookie.....

today 010

He will paint the living room carpet and the couch in the crumbs....

We gave River some animal crackers in a bowl in the living room as a treat because he was in a bad mood yesterday afternoon.. I KNEW it was a bad idea but oh well.. he had a fun time and that's what was important. Nothing a little vaccuming and a little warm water for the couch couldn't cure.

River had a follow up appointment with the ENT on Friday. She said his ears are ALL CLEAR! But she said that his difficulty breathing and his coughing was because he now has a sinus infection *rolls eyes* She told us to put a call into the pediatrician and see if they wanted him to be seen there or at least get an antibiotic for him. So I called the pediatrician and they prescribed Zythromax for him. He's on it for 5 days and then off for 5 and then back on it for 5. Hopefully it kicks it once and for all.

He has been a super good big boy on eating table food. Today he had eggs yolks for the first time and he also had some cut up pieces of mango and papaya which he LOVED. He's doing so good with eating real foods *most of the time* our next hurtle is the bottle. He is NOT interested in the sippie cup at all. Oh well, no rush. It won't be the end of the world if he's on the bottle past his first birthday.

No school tomorrow and no daycare tomorrow but Doug has to work so it'll be just baby and me tomorrow. Here's hoping he's in a good mood.

Tomorrow starts school again... UGHHHHH I'm not ready. I'm not ready for my break to be over yet! I got pampered being able to "sleep in" and spend more time with River and time by myself and relaxing.. Tomorrow I have to be up at 6:15 and then Wednesday and Thursday I have to be up at 5:15. UGHHHHH I don't want to!!! *kicks feet* I have a midterm tomorrow in GU. A final a week from tomorrow in Cardio. And then a final a week from that in GU. Time is flying. I am officially half way through the program. I am officially a "junior" now. It seems like yesterday that I was starting the program with 13 months to go and a 5 month old.. Now I have 7 months left and I have and 11 month old. OMG!!!!!!

Speaking of having an 11 month old. The kiddo is doing wonderfully. The only bad thing is that his ears aren't doing so hot still :( We took him to the doctor Tuesday and they said his ears are still red and still have fluid on them. Gave him another antibiotic drop to put in his ears twice a day for 7 days (believe me he LOVES that.... NOT). He goes to the ENT for a follow up from the surgery on Friday. I'll be interested as to what she has to say. Other than his ears though he is growing so much!! Today he finally found the "mama" sound and has been saying it and "mum mum mum" over and over again. I LOVE IT!! He is standing alone with out holding on to anything for a few minutes at a time now and can take a few steps when there is something he wants bad enough. He now has 5 teeth. And he is the light of my life. I love him to pieces :)

I was going to write more but I just don't feel like it honestly.. gonna go get ready for tomorrow, take a shower and go to bed..
