Mommy I'm happy

I have been desperately wanting to get Logan potty trained for some time now.

He is almost 3 1/2 years old and we are tired of changing his diapers. The only problem is that he seems to be pretty content.

One day I was changing an extra "awesome" diaper of his and I asked him if he was tired of having to get his diaper changed and if he wanted to go in the potty. Without skipping a beat he replied, "No Mommy. I'm happy".

How are you supposed to potty train a kid when he is "happy" with wearing diapers?

I have gotten him to sit on his potty a couple of times. He is a very patient kid when he does sit on it. He sat on the toilet for 2 hours straight once. Crazy kid!

"Mommy, stop taking pictures of me on the potty!"

Hopefully I will have a breakthrough soon.

P.S. Colin is all better from his RSV, but now the poor kid has an ear infection. :(

No-Mo For Me Please

RSV + Chris out of town = A Crazy Week!

That's right.

My poor, sweet baby Colin has RSV. We avoided it with the other two boys when they were babies, but this time we weren't so lucky.

7 months old and sick :(

I took him to the doctor on Tuesday because he had a cough that kept getting worse, he wasn't eating much, and his feet looked a little purple.

After getting a chest x-ray( Have you seen the contraption have to put babies in to make them hold still? It's awful), a breathing treatment, and his nose swabbed, the doctor determined that he most likely had RSV.

He referred me to the RSV clinic at Mckay Dee Hospital. I took him their where he had his nose suctioned and was given another breathing treatment. Of course he did not like having to do any of this. The next day I found out from the nose swab that he did indeed have RSV. :(

Since Tuesday evening I have taken him back to the clinic 2 more times; including this morning at 3 am. I am exhausted, but I am hopeful that he is finally on the mend and am also grateful that so far he has not had to be admitted to the hospital.

Have any of you had baby's with RSV?

As you can tell from the top of this post, Chris has been out of town all week. Awesome timing... isn't it? Thankfully Chris' mom has been such a big help. I don't know what I would have done with out her.

The biggest bummer is that we were going to head to Wyoming on Wednesday to hang out with my mom and Katie. I will just have to do redo trip when everyone is feeling good.

To top everything off, Logan started throwing up today. I have no clue why.

When it rains it pours.

I just have to keep telling myself, "It could be worse".

Chris... I know you are enjoying sunny Florida, but I'm ecstatic that you are coming home tomorrow. I know you would have been here this week if you could.

No-Mo For Me Please :)

P.S. You must be proud Katie! This is my 3rd day in a row :)

Switching Places Might Be Nice



This actually kind of looks like him. Ha ha.

Chris is in Tampa, Florida right now on a business trip. While he is enjoying 80 degree weather, I freeze my hands off every time I go outside.

Lucky him!

NO FAIR for me!

I wish my full time job as a stay at home mom would send me on a mommy convention to somewhere warm. :)

We miss you Chris and hope you are having a good time!

Month of Blogging

I have been such a slacker on blogging lately... so I have decided that February will be my month for blogging. We will see by the end of the month how well I did.

A couple of quick pictures to show what we have been up to.

The boys have been spending a lot of time hanging out with each other. It is so fun to watch them bond together and become good friends. Ethan and Logan love Colin so much and are so good at helping me take care of him.

My sweet babes got his first two teeth on the 19th. The picture is somewhat blurry but if you look close you can see the teeth popping out.

That's all for today. Gotta save stuff to write for tomorrow. :)
