pics! and new favorite thing...kinda!

A few new pictures! The last few pictures of Jack being a 9 month old boy!

Playing Peek-a-boo with mommy! "found ya"!

Look how big I am!

On our way home from the grocery store! Our HEB has balloons for kids at the check out stand....but instead of waiting till then we always grab one when we walk in the door! It's more fun to play with as we shop!!

Jack chillin watching Sesame Street! His favorite!

My boys taking a nap together! Nothing better than napping with our little man!

An Evening walk in the BOB!

Jack and his puppy!
One morning I was doing stuff around the house, and heard jack laughing in the kitchen. I went in to find him and Gracie playing around the island! Had to get it on video!

The ever lasting runny nose.....
Lately Jack has been getting lots of runny noses. No fever, sometimes a small cough, but the dang thing will never leave for more than a week or two, and then it comes right back. The first two times it developed into a cough and took him into the pediatrician and was told ears, and chest were all clear. Well, that's great but the poor kid can't sleep , and at times has a hard time eating because his little nose is stuffed up and runny. Well, Rob mentioned this to one of his co-workers who also has kids and she suggested the Graco Nasal Aspirator! It works on batteries, and sucks the mucus right out of the nose, and fast! The only bad thing, it works for about 2 weeks then breaks, this has happen twice. I called Graco and they said they would ship us a new one! Sounds good to me! So I now have a love hate relationship with this nasal aspirator. Love it, when it works. Hate it when it breaks, with no warning!

Here are a few new pics! I am sure many of you have seen these on my facebook already. But for scrap-booking purposes here they are again!

Jack in the BOB out on our run!

My happy little guy!

Love the foot up while eating! It must be in the genes because I clearly remember being told to put my knees down while eating! funny!

Sick little man

For the past 11 days Jack has been sick with a cough, and runny nose. This means, no good naps, or night time sleeping. Rob and I even got to the point where we point Jack in bed with us, because he kept waking up several times in the middle of the night unable to breath though his nose. To say the least, we are all just a little exhausted!

We took him in twice to see his doctor, just to make sure his drainage has not settled in his lungs or ears, all clear each time. We were told that a low grade fever was fine, and to let it run it's course which would take about 7-10 days...REALLY? you want us to wait 7-10 days to see if this goes away?!? There are two pediatricians that are in this practice, one that has two small kids (we really like her) and one that has no children. We saw the the latter both times, which is probably why she told us to just wait it out, even after we went into see her the second time. I wanted to say, do you know what it's like to not get a good nights rest for 7-10 days because your baby is up all night sick?! Finally, on day 11 we had ALL had enough and asked for her to call in an antibiotic, and decongestant! That night, Jack slept all night! HAAA! Thank goodness!!

Jack is finally on the mend, and we are all on the road to more sleep!

Happy New Year, 2011!

It has been a wonderful year for our family! The best part of course was the arrival of our little Jack! After more than a year of trying to get pregnant, we recived the positive news that we would be having a baby! We will be celebrating his first birthday in only 3 months! Crazy how a year can completely change your life. While at the same sometime, make you wonder where the time went! I guess you could say, we were busy enjoying life! :)

New Years Eve 2011 was pretty low-key. We spent a couple of hours with our great friends, the Kapoors! Dinner and great company! We always have the best time when we get together and here is the only picture of the evening!

Cheers to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2011!
