Father's Day

Yesterday we celebrated Brandon's very first Father's Day.
This is post is all for him!
If you have never met my husband, Brandon you are truly missing out. He is one of those people who would give you the shirt off of his back.

I am just fortunate enough to be his wife.
Brandon is my sidekick, in this crazy crusade of parenting. He keeps me grounded.
He is also the best daddy I know.

He loves our babies. He hurts when they hurt. He changed diapers without fuss. He sings and dances with me just to get them to smile. Believe me this is not a sight you want to see.
Happy Father's Day Brandon. You deserve it!

We love you!!

Our No Good, Very Bad Week

Well fellow bloggers
Summer is officially upon us, and this year it has brought us sickness!

Last week my sweet husband started to complain about a toothache. By Tuesday morning at 4 am his fever had reached 103.8. We set off to the local emergency room. We left there after two hours with four prescriptions, a diagnosis of facial abcess, and my husband's very sore bottom from a shot.
Wednesday he woke up with his throat almost completely swollen. Off to the doctor's office we went. We headed home with a new diagnosis of strep throat, another three prescriptions, and another sore bottom.
Brandon slept through this week. He only awoke to drink, eat, or take his medication.
He finally felt better on Friday and headed to work with a slightly smaller skip in his step.

Matthew began to feel bad Friday. He would not eat and seemed a little cranky. When he woke up from his nap he become inconsolable. So, off to the local emergency room we went.

Bloodwork, swabs, and sticks Oh My!!!

We headed home after several hours in the ER with a diagnosis of double ear infections and an elevated white count. Our sweet Matthew was sick again.
Now, I knew this diagnosis did not seem acurate, so the next morning I made a doctor's appointment.

On the road again:

We headed to Abilene. We were in and out of the office within thirty minutes!!! We had a brand new diagnosis as well: Matthew's ears looked great. There were no infections. All in all, he has an infection somewhere. Antibiotics are his new best frenemy, and we headed home.

This first week of June has brought us plenty of "no good, very bad days."

However, we are embracing summer and all the fun it has in store for our family.

Autumn enjoying her patriotic look!!
Matthew enjoying the summer fun and getting ready to swim!
