its been a week.....

the common cold turned bad, we took logan to the doc after a week and a 1/2 of a bad cold and sleepless nights. we found out he has an ear infection and rsv. he now is on a nebulizer three times a day to help him with his breathing and it is working quite well. he is sleeping through the night now with the help of this, kinda makes me wonder what is in this stuff :) he has gotten quite used to the mask and smiles and talks up a storm when it is on. don't worry people he is doing much better..... as you see in the picture above he is walking around with a bottle of jack (auntie you need to be careful where you leave your booze :). ) at least the bottle was near empty and sealed shut tight.... the kid is back to getting into everything.... actually he never stopped.

yeeeeeee haw! lets all go to the stock show......

yesterday we went to the stock show. brady couldn't wait to get on the tractors that were right inside the door of the coliseum. shocker. it has been a few years since i have been to the stock show and much to my surprise, brian has never been. we had a great time watching the rodeo especially the monkeys that rode around on the sheep dogs that were herding, well, sheep. of course we had to leave the rodeo early, the boys can only last so long sitting in one place. i must say that they lasted far longer than i thought they would. by the way taylor watch out brady got a wink and a wave from ms. rodeo usa. he was mighty smitten.

what a week

what you do when you need to reduce a fever and your hands are too cold to hold the otter pop any longer.

i am a little late in posting this but logan got a hair cut and here is his before shot

and his after shot. a baby into a little man....... sniff..... sniff

so i am doing a little catching up in this post. boys have been sick, work has been busy and well life in general is just happening. mommy got a night out this week with the girls and actually got to see a movie in full at the theatre. no whining or interruptions and adult conversation! thanks to grammy and daddy for making this happen.

what you do when you need to get things done

and you have a shadow.... better yet a monkey hanging from your hip and you feel like your arms might fall off around 4 pm every day. so i put the weight on my back but at least i have both arms to accomplish something....this to shall pass i tell myself everyday.....problem..... he fell asleep at 4 pm........must be comfortable for someone. i know it is not me.

logan's first birthday party

it was a fun day for you little man. you kept the tradition of your brother and slept through half of your 1st birthday party. after a little siesta you were ready to go and chimed in at the most important part. cupcakes! it has been an amazing year with you and you continue to amaze your dad and i every day. your smile will warm any room, your courage makes me want to wrap you in bubble wrap and your hugs around the neck make us smile. happy birthday little monkey, we love you soooooooo much.

the puddle

so tonight brady had a potty obsession. good i guess as i will soon start potty training. he sat on the potty for about 15 minutes tonight. climbed off, got back on again, climbed off, asked me to close the door please...... to no avail we had not potty in the potty but we applaud the effort and interest. i took the boys up to bath immediately following this event. as I was washing brady's hair i noticed my foot was wet. so i thought that some water had splashed out of the tub. when i looked down though it was bright yellow. brian came up to pick up logan after he was washed and dressed minutes later. brady informed him, " daddy i peed and mommy put her foot in it." good times.

why you should not shop early

i continue to find little things here and there I bought and tucked away for stocking stuffers, like this little cars flash light for brady. at least he is enjoying it more now than he would have on christmas day as he got so many other things that would have taken his attention away from something so simple.
