4 months until Curren is 1 year old!

Love this look. "What the heck is that red light, mom?"
I know I say this every time, but it's hard to believe another month has gone by. Time goes by so fast with the 2nd and 3rd kid. I seem to forget all the little milestones a baby meets, but it's still exciting to enjoy the ride with Curren.
He's such a happy little guy, unless he's sleepy or hungry. He still absolutely adores his brothers. And is always looking around to see what they are doing. I'm sure he's dying for the day he's mobile and can follow them around.

Laughing at his brothers
He's sitting up really well. But occasionally gets excited and falls back so I still keep the boppy behind him just in case.
He's not getting the finger food concept. Definitely prefers someone else to feed him.
He laughs all the time or is usually smiling at someone.
He also loves to play in his designated Curren area (no small toys allowed) and roll his balls down this penguin ramp.
He's not a huge fan of rolling or being on his tummy. So the minute you lay him on his tummy he'll roll over.
Not crawling yet either. But both his big brothers didn't crawl until they were 11 months old so I'm thinking we have some time to prepare.
Happy 8 months Curren. We love our little caboose!

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor, would you be mine? Could you be mine? Okay, maybe a little lame to use the Mister Rogers' neighbhorhood song, but hey I thought this picture was cute.

On Friday, Aidan had his best friend over to spend the night. Since the weather has been beautiful they enjoyed some fun outside and then slowly but surely as I was cooking dinner, more and more kids wandered into our house to play a little Wii. Fun times. Man, I wish I were a kid again.

Germs, germs go away!

A nasty, annoying cold germ has been targeting our household lately.

Target #1 - Kellen
Symptoms - goopy red eyes, stuffy nose and a cough.
Diagnosis - Pink eye (surprise, surprise) and his cold created an incessant cough which (along with the pink eye) kept him home from preschool two weeks ago. He's all better now, but occasionally coughs still

Target #2 - Curren
Symptoms - cough, a slight stuffy nose, and eventually pinkish looking goopy eyes
Diagnosis - A nasty bug that mimics RSV which created low oxygen levels, a rapid HR, little appetite and a double ear infection. He also worried us when I had taken him in thinking he had pink eye too and discovered the above mentioned problems. He's on the mend now with antibiotics and his appetite has returned. Along with his cheery disposition.

Target #3 - Aidan
Symptoms - cough, stuffy, runny nose and last night up from 12:30am-6am complaining/whimpering about his ear hurting. (Ibuprofen did NOT help him.)
Diagnosis - ear infection. Did you know they have chewable antibiotics? Sweet!

These germs are not welcome in our house. I don't want anyone else getting sick so go away germs! Don't come back again. Shoo, shoo!
