What We've Been Up To

We went to Uvalde last week for Spring Break..we had so much fun. It was nice to get away and relax. Caleb and Chloe really enjoy playing with Lynley and Royce too....after 4 days of playing nonstop they were all exhausted to say the least. The weather was nice and warm...the kids even did a little swimming. We caught minnows well Nicole and the kiddos caught them and then we fed them to the beta was crazy watching the beta attack and kill those poor fish. I took my camera and I guess I was having so much fun I forgot to take my camera out....hopefully next time I will snap a few pictures.

I took Conner and Chloe to the doctor on Monday. Chloe had a terrible cough while we were gone and Conner was coughing and pulling on his ears. The Doc said it was probably allergies for Chloe and Conner has another ear infection and is wheezing, so he prescribed an inhaler and a steroid. Caleb was feeling good, so he went to work with Matthew.

Today was western day at Caleb and Chloe's school. They looked so cute all dressed up in their western gear. While they were at school. I took Conner to the ENT (ear,nose,throat) Doctor to have his ears checked, and he still has an infection in his Right ear. The Dr says he needs tubes, so he is scheduled on the 17th of April. He told me to switch him to soy formula (which may decrease infections...don't ask why b/c I didn't think to ask) and he will check him a few days prior to surgery and if all looks well then we may post pone putting tubes in.

Conner has been crawling on all fours...he still does drag himself on occasion, but that boy is on the move. He also learned to pull up and boy oh boy is that boy into everything. He will pull up or at least try to pull himself on anything he can get his little hands on. Yesterday I caught him standing up to the dishwasher and looking out the window...he gets so excited..I guess he thinks he's big stuff. He's been shaking his head back and forth(like he's saying no)'s so cute..well at least at this age it is. He started clapping his hands when we sing patty cake...he's growing up too fast..I can't believe he's 9 months! Oh and he finally cut his other top tooth, so he now has 4!

Here are a few pictures!

What a week!

It has been crazy around our house this past weekend/week! We took Conner to the ER Thursday night, because he had a fever of 104 and it only went down to 103.8 after tylenol and cool bath. They ran tests and came to the conclusion that he had a virus..i guess! Chloe stayed with my mom and dad and Caleb went to spend the night with his friend Kade. Well we got home from the ER at 3:30 am and went straight to bed...i got a call at 5:30am from Kade's mom....Caleb's throwing up...i was so tired, but i threw on my robe and put my contacts in and went and picked him up. He threw up a few more times and then he was fine, but what a night! With our crazy weekend and the time change...I think I am finally catching up on sleep!
Conner cut a tooth on top, so now he has 3 teeth..and he has another one swollen on top. He has been really fussy. I took him to the doctor on Monday and he has a double ear infection and blisters on his throat..poor baby! He weighed 20lbs 2oz. He has been so lovey and snuggly though, so I will take it while i can....I just love it!
Chloe loves to tell stories and make up names and the such...she is such a mess! While we were waiting at the doctor's office she is holding up a book and walking around telling stories...I think I told her a hundred times "Chloe use your quiet voice"....she is so loud and some of her stories are out there...I mean where does she come up with this stuff..what an imagination she has! I got her on video singing a Christmas song about God, Jesus, and's pretty funny! She did hand motions too! It reminded me of Emily and Jan when they were little and all of their many performances. She is so clumsy and tends to run into things, so i am taking her to the eye doctor on friday to see if she needs glasses. I thought she was just clutsy, but my mom told me Emily was the same way and it was because she needed glasses...I guess we shall see!
Caleb started Baseball last week! He has practice every Tues/Thurs night and games on Saturday. He's excited about playing, but is so hard on himself. At the first practice he missed the ball the first time and had such a meltdown. He kept telling us "I'm horrible"....Matthew and I explained to him that he hasn't played in a few months and with a little practice he'll get better! He seems so grown up...I can't believe he is 5 and will start kinder in the fall! He is such a good kid and is always there to give me a helping hand! He is still Star Wars obsessed and would sit and watch tv, play his nintendo ds, or play with his little men all day everyday...if I let him. Matthew put up a swing set in the back yard and Caleb taught himself to swing high all by if we can teach Chloe! :)
Well this post is long and I need to clean the kitchen! So until next time!!!!
