The Unhappiest Baby on the Block

That is going to be the title of the parenting survival guide I write someday. I want it to be on the shelf right next to that other book with a very similar title (less the un). My book may be quite a bit more depressing, but at least it will be real.

The Bodester has been sick with something or another for about, oh, 16 months now. Apparently his ear infections are no respecter of holidays. He had a 104.5 right as we were opening gifts and things only got worse until we could get him to the urgent care clinic. Here he is getting some sympathy from Dad:

Thankfully he wasn't too out of it to pick his nose...

and then carefully examine it.

And we are off to Dallas for a concert, some shopping, and some always needed r&r. Praise God!

You always find a way to make me laugh!!

I hope Bode feels better soon! Kaeden was always sick (until he got tubes put in) - since then he has been super healthy. I know how awful those ear infections can be!

Yes, mom does still live in Chickasha - for now atleast. My stepdad may get transferred early next year. I would love to meet you for dinner! But probably in OKC - if that's good for you!

Have fun in Dallas! Get lots of rest. :)

Oooohhhh...poor baby and poor you. I hate those high fevers. Kids should not be allowed to be sick on Christmas. It's just not right. If you guys have any free time while you're here give us a ring. Have fun!

WOW I am so sorry! I'll pray for some answers/relief soon!
