Sick Little Man

As I sit here typing our little man, Colton, has a 103 fever. He woke up fine this morning and then some friends came to play and he came downstairs and cuddled up in my lap. FYI, Colton just doesn't do that. Cooper is my cuddle bug. So I thought that was kind of strange but I just enjoyed having him with me. Then Stephanie said, watch him have like a 104 temp. I said that would be terrible since Caden is still on his antibiotics. So we keep chatting and then she went upstairs to check on the other 4 kids and I decided to take his temp. And of course it was a 101.8. She quickly began to pack up her kiddos and get out of my house as soon as possible! Hahaha! We tend to share sickness between our 6 kids and soon to be 7 all together! Neways, we just have one car these days which can be very annoying on days like today. I had run out of any childrens motrin or tylenol so I had to call Jon to see if he could come home at lunch and bring us some. He said fine and he would be there in like 30 min. so when he got to the house I checked him again because he felt even warmer. It was now 103.6! So I called the nurse line and they were able to get me an appt fairly quickly. So we all hop in the car to drive to Collierville which is about an hour from our house! They said his ears were great but that his throat had ulcers on it and it was red. They did a strep test that came back positive but she said he had Hand, Foot, and Mouth as well! Really?!?!? So she gave us medicine and told us to keep him AWAY from baby! Yeah right! He loves his little brother so much and gives him kisses every night before he goes to bed. We'll see how that goes tonight! He looks so miserable and I feel so sorry for him b/c there is nothing else I can do but pray the other 2 don't get it and that he is feeling better quickly! So now I have 2 out of 3 on antibiotics! Please Lord let them all get better soon!

Ear Infections

I do not like those 2 words! Colton had terrible ear infections and ended up getting tubes put in at 15 months. We prayed so hard for Caden to not have reflux that we forgot to pray for few ear infections. Today I took him to the doctor because his nose is really stuffy and he had a low grade fever. We got there and my little man weighs 12lbs!! He will be a month old tomorrow and he is growing so fast, I will post a pic tomorrow. Neways, he checked his nose, throat, and ears and my one month old has a double ear infection!!! I could not believe it! So here we go with antibiotics. I am praying that this is not just the beginning of multiple to come! What a shocker!

First Smiles

Today Caden started smiling at me! This morning after he ate his breakfast he was a happy boy. I have a few videos but I think this one has the best smile. His brothers had just woke up and come in to see him. He will be 4 weeks old tomorrow! What a sweet little baby!

Lovin' Life

We are all doing great here at our house. Caden is amazing and is on his schedule and sleeping 10-6 every night! What a blessing! He is so precious and I hold him all day...if you try to put him in his swing he screams. O well! He loves his momma, what can I say? He will be too big too fast so I am gonna enjoy all of his sweetness while I can!

The older boys are still doing awesome and loving their little brother. They are huge helps and I am having so much fun with my 3 boys!

I am so sad that its almost the middle of July and Coop goes back to school so soon. I have loved having him at home and I will miss him alot when that time comes. He is so excited about starting school and I am excited with him, he loves Brighton Elementary and so do we. We are praying for the teacher that he will get. We were spoiled with Ms.Katie last year and we are praying this next one is just as great.

Just a little update on whats going on at the moment. I will update with new pics of Caden, he is already changing so much! But he is still so big! :)

My sister-in-law came out when Caden was 2 days old and took some pics of him! I can't wait to see them all but she put this one up as a preview. I love it! Isn't he a cutie?
