Sick and Tired!

Well for the past week mama and baby have been snifflin and snottin around the house. I figured that we were being attacked by allergies and there was really no way around it. Ya know - NO BIG DEAL! Well I noticed that both our boogers were lovely shades of yellow and green and went very well with the red leaves that have fallen in our yard! We were set to take a little road trip to Rochester, NY to see Miles' God Parents since he hasn't seen them since he was six month old! Saturday morning the boy woke up with a fever. He had felt warm before we put him down but nothing major. I opted not to take him to the doctor and would see how it would play out. I went to get him, as I usually do in the morning and he had a film of yellow-green snot from ear to ear! Yippee and a fever to boot! Well I wanted to be on the safe side and not to push my luck driving through the mountains and irritate his ears. People if you know me, you know my luck with traveling with a sick kid! I just didn't want to risk it! As soon as I got him de-snottified, I called his godparents to let them know we wouldn't be coming. I feel really bad, we all were looking forawrd to this trip. We are trying to figure out when we can do this again. I haven't heard from his Godparents, I hope they understand!

Miles did break his fever last nite and seems to be in good spirits, full of snot, but good spirits nonetheless! Oh yeah, Mommy's doing ok 2!

My Latest Project

PlayGroup for Miles!

I found a playgroup that is being held on the same campus as my old Elementary School, It is a Day care now. Well anyway we thought it would be great for him. It's from 9:30 to 11:30 am, they have free play, arts and crafts, story/circle time and even snack. It is parent run and we all pitch in to help out. It is a wide range of ages, which is fine but it becomes kind of a free for all when older kids show up!

Miles had a relly great time and went up the steps to the slide and slid down all by himself. Such a proud mama I am! Ryan was also able to go with us which was great! It is 2x a week and only $7 after your first time(free). I think we will go back and stay for circle time. Here are some pics.

A Day at the Park!

I know that I am late with posting these pics but here they are. We decided to try out our neighborhood playground and except for the bees it was a really nice time!

Late Update!

OK I do apologize to the 3 people who have been checking everyday for a new post, thank you for your loyalty. I haven't really been in the blogging mood, primarily because I can't type! I wish I could just call you all and chat my post but I can't, so here it goes.

Cousin Rikki and Troy are welcoming their first child in October. I attended the shower and totally left my camera at home. (whatta boob!) Rikki looked great, and her belly filled with their future! I sense the excitement and welcomed fear that we all experience as new moms, my wish for her is to stay in the moment and enjoy the experience. Good Luck!

I had initially noticed that Miles was running around with a limp and I watched him like a hawk. At first, I thought that he was trying out the gallop and I thought how cute, I finally got a pony. Ha! So I made a Dr's appt. and the doctor put him thru a range of motions and saw that there was a discrepancy in his leg length. She advised us to keep things the way they are and as long as he isn't in any pain. She gave us a script for a bilateral hip x-ray. This oughtta be loads of fun. On top of it all we have to wait to see the Ortho doc in NOV! Otherwise he's great!

Miles is beginning to recognize some of his letters. Just last night, he said A-G. He really enjoys saying D-E-F. When he sees the letter D, he gets all happy and says Daddy( it sounds like this da-deeee) He also says goo goo goggles (thanx Dr Seuss). He is coming down the stairs on his own with heavy supervision.

In other news, Miles threw up all over me the other day, just to tell me how much he loves me!
It was all over my left side, on toys, my purse and books! We had to wash him twice to get the smell off. Wheeeeew!
