Random Picture Challenge 4.0 from

Here is Erynn before heading off to Ronnie and Nikki's wedding. I loved this dress (I splurged and bought it at Gymboree) and the matching purple ballet flats! We had a great time seeing all of our family while we were in was a great time!

The date is set...

So we had our appointment with the ENT. He looked at Colin and agreed...tubes it is! So on February 18th we will head off to Cardinal Glennon to have tubes placed. We are comfortable with the procedure and especially the hospital, but how we are going to keep a 6 month old from eating I am not sure. But hopefully this will do the trick and Colin will be able to sleep better and not be so crabby. We are keeping our fingers crossed!

Random picture challenge

So as per 4littlemen.blogspot picture challenge, this is the 30th picture of August 2007

This is Lydia with her friend Jack at their spring program at preschool. Jack's dad and I went to the same grade school together...just a few years ago. Anyway, these guys get together and can be some goofy kiddos! :) They certainly are cute though! Oh and Lydia thinks Jack is pretty cute...she ALREADY has something for boys with curls. (Oh and I know this wasn't taken in August, but I hadn't downloaded pictures in a while so my August folder was pretty big!)

ENT here we come...

So Colin had his 6 month check up today and yet another ear check. We finished up his 4th round of antibiotics last week and were hoping that maybe his ears would be clear. No such luck! There is yellow pus still there and the ear drums don't react. So we got our referral to the ENT and already have an appointment for next Wednesday. As scary as it is to have to take your child to the hospital, we know it is a simple procedure. And it would be nice to have a smiling baby all the time, or at least most of the time. Oh yeah, and to not be covered in baby puke might be nice too! We will see what the ENT says, but if I were a betting woman, I would bet he is going to advocate tubes. At this sounds good to me!

My baby is 6 today...

6 months that is! I am having a hard time believing that this picture was taken almost excatly six months ago! I remember being so scared and sad that my little boy was having to go through all of this at just a few hours old. As a mom, I of course had mommy regret...thought that maybe there was something that I could have done to avert all of this, but I also believe that things happen for a reason. Maybe I just needed to be reminded how precious and precarious life is...and believe me, this experience makes me appreciate my children more. Anyways, Happy half birthday little boy! We love you!

So, if you know Erynn at all, you know that she doesn't stop. Not much anyway. I guess she had stopped to watch "Mity Mouse Tubhouse" the other day and her exhaustion got the better of her. Doesn't she look angelic?! :)


With these new arrivals, we are hoping to see more of Colin like this...

Here we go...

So...somedays I just need to document what is going on with the kids, other days I just need to share my misery, and others I just need to write out my thoughts. I thought that a blog might help me do this without being able to lose it in my pigsty of a house. Anyway, here we go...
