Checking In

I've been pretty absent as of late (I feel like this is becoming a reoccurring theme here). What can I say, first time mom. I'm trying to figure all this out.

Kaileb recently had his first cold. Then the hubby came down with it.

Some other things happened in my life that I needed to wrap my head around before I could even think about blogging about it.

Now I'm recovering from a sinus infection turned head cold. So don't worry my little blog and all my dear blogging buddies. I am not going to be away for long. Give me a few more days to recover and I should be back in full swing.

Thanks for bearing with me.

sick babies are no fun

I think the title speaks for itself. 

Kaileb has been sick for 4 days. I was at work when he first came down with it.

Matt was taking care of him. Poor little man ran a low grade fever, with night sweats where he soaked through this onesie and the bed. I could literally wring his little pajama's out and get actual water (sweat) out of them.

Finally I decided that maybe I should take him to urgent care after talking to my midwife and an on call nurse.

They didn't do anything more than I did at home already. They checked his temp, prescribed me baby tylenol, little noses nose drops, and lots of mommy cuddles.

He is finally doing better. Still has a stuffy nose but at least he is playing and smiling again.

That's all that really matters right?

Vacation Story Part 3

Finally on our way home after 3 very crazy busy days filled with awesome friends, family and adventures I am sure we are going to be laughing about years to come.

On the way home we thankfully did not have to use the heater to keep my car cool enough for the 3 hour drive. Small blessings.

We did however get back to the Tri-Cities and instead of going home we went to the nearest Hertz Car Sales to get a reliable family car.

Good by red sports car:

Hello family car:

So far I am really like all the extra room I have and the fact that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to fill her up. Only down fall is I am used to having a car with some balls. This car so does not have any. Going to have to get used to that. In the long run I am going to miss my spots car I know it is going to be easier to travel with my growing family to and from places. And I won't have to worry about breaking down in again (quick someone knock on wood!).

The rest of our vacation was a lot more low key. 

Matt and I had a day to ourselves. So we lounged on the couch watched some Netflix and played with Kaileb all day long.

The next day was the family reunion at the Prosser Park. I am kicking myself for only snapping one picture out of the whole day -- I was to busy having fun. We ate lots of food, wondered the carnival, caught up with family, and watched a talent show.

The next day my Dad and sisters came up for lunch and school clothes shopping for my youngest sister. I also got to see my nephews and capture this cute photo below of Matt, Kaileb and John:

Wouldn't he make such a good Dad of two? 

Thoughts on that is for another post entirely.

As you can see, we have been really busy. It took me three whole posts to write about my vacation. I have never done that before! Phew. I can check that off the bucket list.

And you know what was the perfect end to this vacation? This little man leaning how to scoot/barrel crawl off the play mat and towards me:

Time to start baby proofing my house!
