Something Sour

So yesterday while I was holding Mr. Chase 2.0 I kept catching an incredibly sour smell. So he got a bath, two infact and that sour smell was still lurking about. Mr. Chase 2.0 was fine though so we went about our day.

Well this morning he was fussy and I picked him up and he was ON FIRE!!! Took his temp 101.5 took it about 30 minutes later, 102. 2. Lovely. So I gave him tylenol and put a call into the Family Doc. {He's on Speed-dial} "Let's get him in."

Two hours later, the doctors office welcomed us and asked if it would be okay if a Med Student looked at Mr. Chase 2.0... I said of course happy to help would-be-doctors become real doctors. So he asked me about 50 questions was very thurough listened to his lungs looked in his mouth and in his ears. Mr. Med Student said that he looked good his ears looked great and suggested that it was probably just a virus but he would have our Doctor look too. So our Doctor comes in says hello checks out Mr. Chase 2.0's ears and goes WOW. That's definately infected.

So here we are on a NEW round of yet another antibiotic. Poor Mr. Chase 2.0 is sick of not feeling quite up to snuff.

Come With Me....

I have cupcakes.

I have been on a baking binge lately. Miss Daisy is not upset by this at all.

Cupcakes are my current obsession.

Although Cinnamon Twists/Rolls and bread have been in my oven as of late as well. We've been getting a lot of rain. I bake when it rains.

Miss Daisy likes to "stir eggs" so she helps me in my baking pursuits.

{notice the dishes in the drainer- I am really wanting a dishwasher I've gone 4+ years without one now and I really have the "i wants" for one}
She helped so much today.
She turned the oven up to broil whilst I was feeding Mr. Chase 2.0 and the pulled pork rolls were in the oven.
I smelt something burning.
Luckily it was only the roll on the bottom rack that was overcooked... go figure huh?

i LOVE my online friends

Although we have may never met in real life, you ladies are a HUGE part of my support system.
I have not met any of you but I feel like we're really friends. I have cried with you in times of trial, laughed with you at happy things and worried with you when stressed out. You are all amazing and I hope that one day we can all meet up for big party. :)

I {heart} My Grandmother

When the summer before I turned 21 I ran away from home (sort of) and moved in with my Grandmother. She and I have always had a special relationship. I adore her, she is a woman that I hope to emulate, strong, hard headed a slightly crazy. It also helps that I am her FAVORITE grandchild (and that's saying something because there are 40+ of us) Okay, Okay, I may NOT be her FAVORITE but she makes me feel that way, that's how awesome she is she makes us ALL feel like we are her FAVORITE.

Well I have been missing my Granny something fierce lately - don't worry she is not GONE {insert gloomy music} - she just lives 12 hours away and with gas being $4 a gallon and having two children under the age of three (one of which that up until TODAY was seeing a doctor on a bi-weekly basis ) a 12 car ride is not a very feasible idea - as much as I have entertained that idea as of late.

So... I did the next best thing. I made Pork Chops! They were (while I lived there) and are a staple in her house, they are her favorite thing to eat. They have to have bones, so you can chew on them, and applesauce should accompany them. As I sat there after everyone else had finished my last supper worthy meal I reveled in the bliss that was chewing on the bones. I even called my Dear Old Granny to tell her I was thinking about her.

She laughed and said, "Oh yeah, Pork Chops make you think of me... Great!"

I <3 My Granny!!!

Tender Moments

There are times that I wonder if I'm EVER going to be able to handle TWO children.

And then I see this.
"Hey brother, do you wanna play? Rawr!!"

I've been having seriously strange dreams lately.

I mean strange.
Maybe I should stop eating brownies in the middle of the night?

So my father has been giving me a hard time. Telling me that Mr. Chase 2.0's smile is like this cartoon. He didn't really believe that Mr. Chase 2.0 had actually done this, I was making it up. Well here's proof!
At 16 weeks and 6 days Mr. Chase 2.0 finally decided to do this.
