I truly hope 2009 brings us better health for Caden ... less visits to Children's Hospital and the opportunity to "just play"!
Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year! Hugs - Trisha
During our visit we took a grand tour of my parent’s neighborhood to look at all the Christmas lights – their neighbors really get into it. We also went to Bellevue Square to do a little shopping, ate dinner at Cheesecake Factory – YUMMY! and checked out Snowflake Lane. My dad even came with us - oh the power of a grandkid! Grammy had hoped that Caden could sit on Santa’s lap – but the line was over a half an hour long – so Caden lucked out and dodged Santa again. Snowflake lane was pretty cute and Caden couldn't get enough of the cool lights and fake snow!
Caden got his first pair (actually 2 pairs ...shhhh!) of real shoes at the Stride Rite store.
This little firetruck at PBK was sooo cute ... but his legs are too short, darn it!
Mesmerized by the cool lights
Hanging out with his buddy Bailey
It was confirmed this weekend that my kid is a little s&*t!!! He adores my parents dog, Bailey … and Bailey allows him to tug, pull, and crawl all over him. Caden was poking his eyes, so I got down on the floor slapped his little hand and told him NO, you don’t poke Bailey’s eyes. As I’m telling Caden this he is rolling his eyes away from me and then proceeds to shut his eyes. The little S#*T was trying to ignore me. How do they learn this at 20 months?!? I am amazed!
Caden is fighting another ear infection. This has been ongoing since the Friday after Thanksgiving. We started with ear drops, then went to the antibiotic - Zythromax last Thursday. Monday night he woke up with a fever of 103.9. I got the fever down to 100 and took him to daycare – bad mommy! The sitter called at 10 yesterday morning – he was miserable – I had to take the rest of the day sick leave and go rescue him. I called the pediatrician yesterday to try and get a stronger antibiotic but my request was denied ….rrrr… Shouldn’t he be getting better with the antibiotic, not worse? We have to wait a few more days before she will give us something stronger. I took my little buddy to daycare today with a temperature and a bottle of Tylenol …. The joys of being a working mother!!!
Waiting for the snow to start falling ... it's arrival is a little late this year!
