Animal Sounds

This is a video of Trevor doing his animal sounds, of course, while he eats. It's just a little game we like to play. I'll ask him what the animal says, and he'll do the sound that they make. Remember to pause the play list at the bottom of the page before watching!

Happy Boy!

He's always the happiest when he's eating....sounds like his momma! He is feeling much better today. I can tell a big difference since yesterday. We went to follow up with Dr. Hardwick yesterday, due to our ER visit Saturday. He still has a nasty cough, and you guessed it...ear infections. For the LOVE!!! I'm so glad we meet with an ENT specialist on August 4th to discuss tubes. He doesn't act as miserable this time, because Dr. Hardwick caught it early, and is treating it early. This time we only have 5 days of antibiotics....hooray!! Other than that, he's pretty much back to normal. We haven't done anything interesting this week, so that's why I haven't posted. We've been trying our best to stay indoors while he's getting over this cold. Lord knows he doesn't need to be in the 100 degree heat!

First Official ER Visit

Well, I had to break down and take Trevor to the ER last night, well actually this morning. He's had a cough for about a week that wasn't that bad. Last night about 8:30, he started coughing constantly and having stridor. He couldn't catch his breath, which is kinda scary when stridor's involved. I got him calmed down, and kept telling myself, let's just wait and see what happens. So the stridor went away, but he continued to cough like a maniac.

So, at 3:00 am, off to Children's we go. We started off with an albuterol neb to see if that would help with the coughing (mind you, he had already had 2 doses of benedryl, and 2 doses of tylenol with codiene for the coughing). Dr. Sorrentino also thought his cough sounded "croupy", so we did some steroids. After the albuterol, we let him calm down, and the stridor started back. Well, that bought him a chest x-ray, airway films, and a racemic epi neb. His chest x-ray looked great, and airway films were "narrowed", which is to be expected with croup.

After 2 breathing treatments, steroids, some x-rays, and 24 hours of no sleeping (what's new?) we are doing better, just exhausted. Thank you, thank you to Dr. Sorrentino, Dr. Monroe, Adam, Skip, and the rest of the ER staff for your help. I work with an amazing group of people! Thanks for getting us in and out, considering how crazy it was there.

Another Hot Day at Splash Beach

We went to the water park again today, and had so much fun. Trevor started out kinda clingy, so I didn't think we'd be there very long. He actually hung in there until about 2:30, which was a record for him. These are pictures of him when I got out my camera. I took my eyes off him just long enough to get out my camera, and this is what I found. He was already on the see-saw playing with some little girl!

Hunter and Trevor

Aren't the boys so photogenic with their mommies?

Austin and His Mi Mi

I think this is the sweetest picture of Tricia and Austin, I just had to share it. I don't even think Tricia knew I was taking it.... :)

Weston, Aiden, and Austin

Sweet Pictures with MiMi and PawPaw

My parents are coming home this afternoon. They've been gone to the beach since Thursday evening, and we miss them! I asked Trevor where they were and he started going around the house saying "MI MI......PAW PAW!" I know he'll be glad to see them in a little while!

Congrats Sarah and John Michael!

My friend from work, Sarah, got married last night at Magnolia Manor. It was such a pretty wedding. I wish I wouldv'e got a picture with all of the ER nurses and Sarah, but I was in it, and there were just too many cameras!

Not Loving the Life Vest!

This picture speaks for itself!

First Time on the Innertube!

Okay, I know he's kinda young for this, but keep in mind that we were being pulled by a pontune boat (not sure how to spell it). I mean, how fast can you really go? He lasted about 30 seconds and then started screaming! As soon as we got into the water, he was quiet. He just wanted in the water, that's all!

Playin' in the Sand

There's a little "beach" down by the water at the river, and Trevor and Avery loved playing in the sand.


We went and stayed at the river with our friends the Nicks Friday night. We had fun shooting fireworks Friday night. I think this was the first time Trevor had ever seen them. He just started sqealing and pointing at them.

Little Stinker....

First, he starts out in the bed....then he decides that he's hungry, so he just goes and helps himself to his drawer of snacks. (I've been meaning to move it to a higher drawer or cabinet for this very reason....he knows the snacks are in there, and he can reach them now.)

Hot Days at the Park

Sweet Kiddos

Braden is the sweetest little boy. Every time he sees Trevor, he runs up to him and gives him a hug!

A Party for Sarah...

Last week at work, we had a shower/party for Sarah. These are just a few random pictures I took.
