Laying Low at Home

The past three weekends have been super laid back.  It's been nice to just relax at home and get some spring cleaning done.  Our "to do" list is getting shorter and shorter!  Gordon has worked SO hard on our yard!  We have three flower beds in our front yard that he has completely redone.  They look fabulous!  But, we've learned that a fabulous looking yard takes a lot of time.  So, while daddy has been digging, planting, mulching, mowing, edging and weed eating, William and I have been playing, going for yogurt runs and doing lots of cuddling. 
Poor little William has been sick a lot over the last month.  At the beginning of March he had fever for 8 days in a row.  He finally got diagnosed with an ear infection after visiting the doctor twice.  This was his second ear infection and 3rd time to be on antibiotics in his two years of life.  A couple of weeks later he got another high fever that lasted 4 days.  Several of the kids in his classroom at school had hand/foot/mouth during that time.  Luckily, William never showed any signs of that....just the yucky fever.  This past Monday we went back to the doctor for gross, green eye drainage.  I knew it wasn't pink eye but took him in anyways just to be certain.  Poor baby boy has another ear infection.  So, we're back on antibiotics.  :(  Luckily, William hasn't acted too sick this go around.  No fever, no pulling at his ears.  Just yucky eyes and nose and less energy.  MAN. OH. MAN.  Life with a toddler is an adventure.  In my 10 years of nursing I have seen so many crazy pediatric illnesses/diseases.....it has made me a thankful mommy!  It can always be worse.  So, I try to always be thankful for the simple ear infection.  We are blessed.

The closets are organized.  All boxes are gone.  We own every piece of lawn equipment we could need (...yeah right, I'm sure there's more to come).  We've tried out another church in our area.  Saturday mornings have been spent at Little Gym.  We've had friends over for dinner. And we've cooked lots of surf and turf on the Green Egg.  We are finally settled in and feeling right at home in the burbs!!!
NOW, we are ready to celebrate William's second birthday with all the people we love this coming weekend!!!
