Jack is kind of a binky-holic.
My fault?

My Goose has an ear infection. His second in his life and the poor boy just can't shake the pain. Thankfully, he's sleeping well at night, but during the day he is all fuss and whiners. He spends most the time in my arms or on the couch reading books. He loves himself a good book. Can't say I blame him.

While we were picking up his prescriptions at Fry's, Jack dropped a book he was reading (told you, he's addicted.) and out came those two little words I've been waiting for. "Uh-oh." and he starred at the floor. I smiled to the boy and reached down to pick up his book. The pharmacist was so tickled and laughed the whole way to retrieve the medicine.

He said it again and again since we got home and it cracks me up. Is he really at that stage already? I mean, he says 'mama' and 'dada' but this was the first word that is probably in my top-five-favorite-things-that-kid's say. Number 2? I love you, of course. My heart was full of happiness.



We saw a brief fall of winter snow yesterday. And when I say brief, I mean only about 3 minutes worth of snow fall. My heart sunk. I had greatly anticipated at least an inch. I woke up at 6:00am to go to the bathroom and opened my blinds to check and see if it had fallen. It hadn't. I was bummed and quickly snuggled back in bed.

I know everyone to the East of us is really hatin' the snow, but could you please send some our way? I'm sure California wouldn't mind a bit either. Just kidding.

Sweet Shot Day

These are such cute photos! But I do hope he feels better soon. Ear Infections are NEVER fun!

I love when kids say uh-oh too. It's so cute. :)

We were supposed to get up for four inches last night. Instead, we got a tiny dusting. But its still freezing cold outside.

Lovely picture.

Oh that is the perfect amount of snow. 3 minutes worth :) I will trade you. We are supposed to get a foot today. BLAH. My son battled ear infections so badly. 18 months without sleeping through the night and two sets of tubes. UGH. I hope he starts to feeling better soon and it never happens again.

My daughter was a huge binky-holic. She had about 8 in her bed at all times until she was about 4 years old. Yes, FOUR years old. And you know what? She gave them up on her own. No tears. No bribes. Just woke up one day and said she was done with them. (We had been reading a few bye bye binky books but I in NO way told her it was time)

She as perfect teeth and her speech is great.

....and the snow here? Blizzard. You can have ours. All. Of. It. You've probably already heard about it on the national news. CNN is here as well as The Weather Channel people.

Boo and hiss to the ear infection. Hope he feels better soon. Taelyn's favorite words are "uh-oh" and "I do it". Of course one is usually followed by the other.

I had lots of ear infections as a baby/child and I remember some of them. I really hope your little lamb feels better.
And, yes--it is a happy moment indeed when they begin talking!
