Double Post Day!

I'm going to try my hardest to do two posts today. There's been a lot going on, but I just haven't found the time to sit down and write it all out. First, it snowed like crazy here this weekend.  Poor Michael somehow got Gout in his foot, so he was down for the count.  I took over the snow removal duties.  I was so proud of myself for getting everything cleared.  Please don't judge me for wearing a Denver Broncos coat.  I don't have any snow gear.

As for an update on Carter, he's doing really well.  The hospital hasn't called to schedule the EEG yet, so I'm starting to think that we got lost in the shuffle.  I'm almost hoping that they don't call.  He hasn't had any more episodes, and I'm truly convinced that it was acid reflux. If he does it again, then I'll be concerned.  I really don't want to have an unnecessary test done, and at this point I feel like it is.
His upper trunk has gotten strong enough that we can lift him by holding on to his hips, and he keeps himself steady. He's been much more alert and talkative as well.  He got really close to rolling onto his tummy yesterday.  He got stuck in that position where he didn't know where his arm should go.  Michael had to help him over the rest of the way.  I think that he has a ways to go before that happens, but at least he's trying.  I never thought that I'd get excited over the fact that my baby now lays flat on his back without rolling onto his side, but I am.  He tries to reach for the buttons on his piano. He's acting more and more like a 3 month old baby.  I took him to Jovie's dance recital today (pics on that later) with the idea that he would have his car seat covered the whole time.  Carter had a different idea.  He wanted to be able to see his sister dance.  Before, he would have been very indifferent to being covered up, but he's wanting to explore his world now.  Sweet, sweet boy.  He's growing up!  Carter and I have caught a cold, but it's really minor and more of an annoyance.  He's struggled with eating the last couple of days because of it, but I'm sure he'll be a lot better tomorrow.

Oh sweet baby. Your so lucky you have a snow blower, I'm so getting me one of the those. My hubby thought he had gout a while back but it turned out not to be.

That snow blower is a beast! And I think you look great in a Denver Broncos Jacket! You should wear it more often :)!
