Tubes Tomorrow...

I don't really have a lot of time to post right now but I thought I would share a quick picture of my sweet boy this morning as I was getting ready to leave the house to take him to the ENT.
Please remember us in your prayers tonight and tomorrow...Fearing is getting tubes tomorrow morning. We knew it was coming, we just didn't realize that when we went today they would do them tomorrow. We have to be at the hospital at 5AM! The worst part for me is that Fearing cannot eat or drink after 12 tonight. It makes me cringe to think I have to pick him up in the morning and not give him ANYTHING to eat or drink. I hope he is still really sleepy and doesn't really wake up so I don't have to just completely deprive my baby. I have been told that most likely at his age when he gets out of surgery he will be alert and mad because he will be hungry and not know why he hasn't eaten. So pray for us. I know this is the best thing for him and I am OK with it, I am just feeling a little scared/anxious about everything right now. I will update tomorrow (hopefully).

New Favorites

I have so much to catch up on but today its not going to happen. See, F is on consecutive ear infections numero 6 and 7. Yep thats right. So to say we are a little miserable would be an understatement. BUT there is a light at the end of this tunnel. We have an appt. with the ENT on Wednesday morning. HALLEJUAH! Yesterday was really rough (poor baby pretty much screamed all day. Even in the Dr's office where usually he is a perfect little angel. I can't imagine how bad his little ears must hurt). I was thinking today HAD to be better and so far it has been better than yesterday but he is SO ill!! So  with that said, I will NOT be recaping the last month of our life. Instead I thought I would share some of our new favorite things through pictures.
Sunday was such a beautiful day and our little family of three decided it would be a great day to get out of the house. I have been wanting some of these for quite some time. And now that I have them, I know why I wanted them.

For those of you who don't have them or know what they are, they're TOMS. They are super comfy and come in an erray of colors! But if you wear a size 5 like me, you might just have to get the classic black. Which I am OK with since they will go with all kinds of things! The best part about these super cuties are each time you purchase a pair of TOMS a pair of TOMS is given to a child in need! YEP. Cool huh! New thing too, you can choose the country you want to donate too.

We have a case of alligator skin in this house too so lately this is our favorite! It is very moisturizing and smells yummy too!!

My MOST favorite item that has been a life saver lately is this!

Fearing has been teething for a while now, he has two pearly whites on the bottom and this baby LOVES his paci! So because he has SO much extra saliva and that paci is not going ANY where, he had the worst chapped face. I found this at Publix and it worked wonders!! It is pretty water proof so drool wasn't a problem. His pretty little face is back to normal again!! Thank you Burt's Bees!

And last but not least, The Winter Olympics have been a staple in our house lately!! We have LOVED watching every single night and we are so proud of the U.S.A!! We have our favorites and have truly enjoyed watching this together throughout the past two weeks.

Fearing was 6 months old yesterday! I had big plans of taking lots of pictures and just enjoying a busy day... But Fearing had other plans. Wednesday I took him for his 6 month check-up where he had to get 5 shots which caused him to run a low grade fever and make him feel really ill! So needless to say we ended up spending most of the day in the recliner. All he wanted was to be held and snuggled. I will admit that it was fine by me. SO today my happy boy seems to be back to normal. YEAH!!
In other news, Dr. Millie said that Fearing looks great. He weighed in at 16lbs 10 oz, and was 26 1/2 inches long. I thought for sure he weighed more than that (my arms swear it too!) But he is one busy little boy and really active.  He loves food too! He pretty much likes all baby food we've tried except green peas. Can't say I blame him...they don't taste very good!
A quick recap on some of the things he is doing these days...

* loves playing in walker and can go backwards really fast!
* loves playing in jump-n-go (johnny jumper on the doorway!)
* would rather be in the floor rolling around than anything else!!
* rolls from back to stomach then back over (I swear it is like he doing what we call log rolls!)
* gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back a forth
* does the army man crawl
*has 2 teeth through the skin!
*grabs anything and everything he can get his hands on!
*loves to pet the puppies
*loves sitting in his highchair
*loves his daddy to hold him at night!

I could keep going but he just passed out in my free arm which now feels like it is going to fall off!
