The Crud and random non-cruddy things...

So my oldest and my youngest have had the crud this week.

Coughing, sneezing, boogery noses {can't stand a boogery nose on a baby}, slight fevers here and there and neb treatments.  You know the deal.

No strep throat though, had them tested.  Just the crud.

So far Harper has managed to avoid it as well as Mike and I.  We'll see how long that lasts.

Bennett has actually been pleasant, he almost always is when he's sick (such a sweet little fella) but I thought this was a funny and rare picture of him looking a tad "ticked".


In other non-cruddy news, I've been busy doing more of my "mini makeovers" of rooms:  Ainsley's room and the master bedroom, as well as my small sewing area.  When I get the time, I'll share pics.  I'm very happy with the change!


And in even more exciting dad.  Not sure if I shared that my dad did get into to a clinical trial at Vanderbilt for his melanoma.  Big answered prayer!  He's been home now for a couple of weeks and sounds terrific.  He's started to lift weights and is walking for exercise again.  He says he feels good.  Seriously dad, YOU ROCK!  

My mom is doing well too, started an exercise class -she's always been into walking and taking good care of herself- but I think it's great after all they've been through this past year to carry on, and carry on even stronger!

I admire my parents sooo much.  I guess cancer has a way of bringing out a lot of sadness but it also has a way of bringing out a lot of strength, strength that you never thought you had.

Mom and dad, you are so strong!


Bennett is wanting to stand and take steps (with my help of course) more and more!  Seriously, he loves it now! He loves to practice getting into a standing position from a sitting position too.  This kid that hated bearing weight now loves standing...I love it!

So there you have it, there's some other potentially interesting things going on but those will have to wait for another day;)



  1. What a sad, sick baby face! You have beautiful children! I hope everyone is on the mend soon! Wonderful news about your dad. I will keep him in my thoughts.

    It is snowing in NY, no joke!!! Perfect for April fools day! Wishing you a great weekend. Thanks for the post.

  2. Great news on your dad! and Bennett's progress!
    Hope you all get over the crud quickly :)


I love reading your thoughts so go ahead and leave a comment!
