A Very Long Post

I feel like I have so much to update on! We had a great time at the beach last week. It was Crawford's first trip to the beach. We had planned on going earlier this summer but things came up at the last minute and we were not able to. We were very excited the Wiles let us join them for the 4th. We were planning on leaving Tuesday before the 4th. When I picked Crawford up from school I saw that he did not eat much, which is not normal for him. I had already taken him to the doctor twice the week before and there was no sign of an ear infection even though I had a feeling both times that he did. I guess it is mother's instinct. I decided I better run him to the doctor before we left for the beach that night. Jacob met me there and Crawford had an ear infection in both ears! We decided to wait and leave for the Beach on Wednesday. He seemed to get better while we were there but he never really stopped pulling at his ears! He finished his medicine this past week and he was still pulling at his ears. I just knew the infection was still there, so I called the nurse (who by the way, I think knows my voice), they told me to wait and see how he does over the weekend. If you know Crawford it is really hard to tell if he is sick or not because he is rarely really fussy, plus he is getting 2 teeth in. So how am I to know if it's just his teeth bothering him or if it's his ears. I guess it is just mother's instinct again. I called the nurse today, Crawford was laughing in the background the entire time. She even says, he sure does not sound sick! :-) Then I start second guessing myself. Well, I am glad I did not. We saw the doctor and his ear infection in both ears is not any better. They don't think the antibiotics work to well for him. So we started the first round of shots today and we go back tomorrow for another round. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it works. I dread him getting a shot again tomorrow. It breaks my heart to see him get so upset. But I would rather him have a shot than have to give him medicine for another week! Now I know why my mom always opted for shots. I would get so mad at her b/c I hated shots. But it is so much easier!

Anyway, Back to the Beach. Crawford loved the beach, water, boys and especially any girls we would see! He is the biggest flirt. He even got to play with Jack Craven. He went on his first boat ride. He did not really like the life jacket at first but he got used to it. Jeff and Hoban were so good with Crawford. Believe it or not, they are naturals with babies! Crawford loved hanging out with the boys. He even got to visit with Jack, Munroe, and Jonathan and Jessica. I am amazed at how good the boys are with Crawford.

Crawford is growing up so fast. It's amazing how babies learn how to do things. He is learning so much. As you could see on the post below. He has started walking with his Walker. So far, he will only do it in front of Jacob and I. He has grown attached to his red wagon. He will not let me take him out of it. He cried for 10 minutes the other night when I took him out. I really hated to take him out but it was late and I was so hot! He stayed mad at me for a while! Luckily he is not at the stage where he remembers those things for a while! Crawford is slowly but surely learning to eat and like table food. I think his ear problem has been part of the hold up. He is really becoming adjusted to his new class room at daycare. He was in a younger class. He just moved up to a class with kids his age and it has made the biggest difference. He used to go around steal all of the kids toys b/c they could not crawl, now he is with kids that can chase after him. I am not sure he likes that. Crawford is just like his dad in more ways than 1. I walked in his classroom last week and his teacher had the music on and was dancing. All of the kids were bouncing up and down and clapping. Crawford was the only one sitting with an expression on his face like what do I do! Just like his daddy! No dance moves!! It was so funny! I could go on and on but I will update you more through out the week. Crawford will be 10 Months old tomorrow! Below are some pictures from the weekend. I just got a new camera. I have no idea how to use it but I have been wanting it for while. If anyone knows anything about the Nikon D60, please let me know!

Crawford loves to help me with the dishes. I can't keep him away from the dishwasher. Yesterday when I was unloading it, I turned around and he was on top of it.

We grilled out with some friends on Saturday. The guys played corn hole while us girls stayed inside. It was hot out! We had a great time and was glad everyone came over.
