Life's Adventures

This week was a week of tears, Bubba. You cried a lot! One day you puked all over your clothes, the crib, the crib bumper and the carpet. A day or so later the diarrhea started and it has been going on ever since. I felt really bad because I knew you didn't feel very well and there was only so much I could do. The only thing that seemed to calm you down was being outside, but some days you didn't want to be outside and you would continue to cry.

I'm cute, even when I puke on myself.

We tried to watch General Conference on Saturday but quickly gave up, it was too hard with all of the crying. Sunday you seemed to feel a little bit better and we were able to watch both sessions of General Conference.

Story time at the library.

I love my bat!

After General Conference we decided to go walk on one of our favorite trails. We didn't make it very far before I noticed some yellow/brown colored stuff coming out of your ear. I called the doctors office to see if I could get you in the following morning and the nurse I spoke with advised me to take you to urgent care. We turned around, got in the car and headed to urgent care.

We walk way almost daily and the sidewalk was so covered with ivy it was becoming impassable. We were so surprised to see the city cleaning it up!

We came across this snake one afternoon while walking.

Nature's beauty!

My hunch was right, you had an ear infection and your ear drum had ruptured. The doctor gave us a prescription for antibiotics and told us to run across the street to the pharmacy to get your filled as the pharmacy was to close in twenty minutes. We were able to get your prescription filled and start you on your medicine. I sure hope you start feeling better soon! Being sick is never fun!

Waiting to be seen at urgent care.

The funny thing about all of this is you never had a fever and you never pulled on our ears. We didn't know you had an ear infection until we saw the nastiness coming out of your ear.

I love my veggies!

In other news, you have really begun pulling yourself up. You frequently pull yourself up in your crib.
