Sorry I haven't posted all week, but I've been busy....between working extra shifts and having a fussy, fussy baby. We are now on our third round of antibiotics to kick this nasty ear infection that he has. And now, of course, he has a nasty rash popping up all over his body, I'm sure from all of the antibiotics. We are back on Augmentin, and I don't have much faith in it, being as it didn't cure the ears the first time. But oh well, we'll wait and see I guess. We weren't able to see Dr. Hardwick on Tuesday, so we saw Dr. Stone. He said that if this round of antibiotics doesn't clear things up, he would highly recommend tubes. We'll wait and see if the antibiotics work, and also see what Dr. Hardwick thinks. Whatever will help my poor baby's ears...I just want my happy boy back! And on top of the ears, we are cutting 4-5 teeth at the SAME TIME. I knew that was coming....being that he's a year old and only has 3 teeth!
Trevor decided he was gonna help Hunter play with some of his toys. He just took off with his dump truck. I wished he would've been this interested in his toys that he got for his birthday...but you know how kids are...everything looks better when someone else has it! Gosh, do they already start that this early?!?

Joe and I both had to work on Valentine's Day. Joe was off the day before, and this is what I came home to at about 8:00pm. I must say, I about fell out in the floor. You just have to understand...my husband cooks, but he doesn't like to clean too much. And my house was a disaster before I left for work. He worked hard getting it cleaned up...and not to mention the dinner...on the dining room table that's always cluttered with bills and papers!!! He straightened all of that up...and if you didn't notice he got me some boxes of chocolates, too. He was so sweet. He knows that my favorite is "turtles", but he went to 3 different stores to find some, and was unsuccessful. He got me 2 boxes of other chocolates instead. I told him I didn't care. I was just amazed that the house was clean, so amazed that I took pictures! Those of you who know Joe, know that he really out-did himself, and earned some major "brownie" points with momma!!!

Well, it's official...I have a one year old. Some of you reading this are probably thinking, dang, how many times is she going to mention Trevor's 1st birthday? (Kam imparticularly). I'm sure those of you who are mothers understand where I'm coming from. But here I go again. Today is the real birthday. It's hard to believe 1 year ago I was in the hospital with a brand new baby boy. My how time does fly. It's just amazing to me how God can use such a tiny individual to make you realize what life's really all about. It's not about how much money you have, or how many fancy trips you can take around the world. It's about being happy with the things around you, and realizing how truly blessed you are. You see, in this past year, I've learned more about myself than I have in the 26 years I've been here on earth. I've stopped wishing I had this, and that...and opening my eyes to what I DO HAVE. I have a wonderful husband and family that love me, a job that I adore (except in the winter...ha), and most of all, a healthy child. In my eyes, it does't get much better than that. In this past year, Trevor has played a major role in showing me the meaning of true love and happiness. I can't imagine my life without him, or remember what it was like before him. Happy 1st birthday, my angel!!
It was so beautiful outside today, we decided to go to the zoo. Trevor had a blast. He had to point at every animal that we saw. I think his favorite was the big hippo. We saw him right as he was getting fed, so we got to see him climb out of the water. Trevor was laughing the whole time. I think all of the animals were tired because it's winter. Even the monkeys were sleeping, so no pictures of them...

Trevor found my stethoscope laying around and decided to put it to use. He was just remimding me that I have to go back to work this weekend. We actually went to see Dr. Hardwick this morning. My little man just hasn't been his normally "happy" self the past two days. He's not sleeping at night, which is really nothing new. But the past 2 nights he has been waking up SCREAMING to the top of his lungs. And then this morning, he had a fever. Well, boy do I feel bad...both of his ears are infected!! So now we got us some antibiotics to take. Hopefully he'll be feeling better in no time!
