First, let's talk about the Snocks. That was not a typo. I meant it. Frankly, this has nothing to do with anything really, but it was too cute not to address. Snocks is a word that I think my mom made up. It is a combination of the words "SNEAKERS" and "SOCKS." I'm not kidding, these are my new favorite things. I'm glad winter is coming because I am pretty sure I'll find a way to have the babies wear them every day from now until the snow we won't get melts. :) They were given to me by one of my sorority sisters, Sarah (Wheeler) Glenn a while back and I just pulled them out a couple days ago! I LOVE THEM! How cute are these feet? Thank you Sarah!
And now let's talk about the empty cribs. Last night was a big, BIG, BIG first for me...I was over at my mom's house and it got late. We'd fed, bathed and bottle fed the babies. While we continued to stay and do kindergarten projects with my sister, we put the babies down in their 3 Gramma cribs. Well, at 9:00pm, it just seemed silly (to everyone else) for me to wake the babies, pack them into car seats, load them into the car, unload them into my house, and try to get them back to sleep, particularly when they haven't been feeling great and my mom would've been at my house at 6:45 am the next day to pick them up anyway. So I got bullied (lovingly bullied) into leaving them at Gramma's to sleep in the capable hands of Gramma and Auntie Val. Now, understand that I was not worried about the babies at all. I was worried about me. So, home I went. Alone. And yes, I cried on the way home. But, I'll say this, as much as I missed those 3 little monkeys, the peaceful night's sleep was quite nice!
No babies in my cribs :(
So just when I'm thinking everything is great, I'm refreshed, I'm at work, my mom calls and thinks maybe since Ethan is not getting better and seems to be coughing even more, that I should try to get him in to the pediatrician. Great! No problem, they got me in at 11:45 today! I ended up bringing Hunter and Ethan since they both had the most residual "cold" symptoms. As it turns out, Hunter is fine! Definitely getting over a cold, but no biggie. Ethan on the other hand, Poor Ethan who hasn't slept all night in at least a week, apparently has a double ear infection. Awesome. I am super mom for sure now. I swear to you, that little boy never pulled at or tugged or even scratched at his ears....how was I to know?? These are my first children and our first colds! So anyway, here's to hoping that my little man feels better soon!
Do you see it? Here's my right ear infection...
