So Josh had his tubes on March 31st. He had another ear infection two weeks later (in April)while healing from the surgery. Then he had another one in May from a cold he caught. Then I took him in June 9th for yet another ear infection, and this time he didn't even have a cold! On June 19th he had his 12m appt and his pediatrician looked at his ears and said they looked clear and wonderful. So guess what? It's June 29th and I had to take him back in again yesterday to the after hours clinic. Diagnosis? Another double ear infection and one eardrum has possible ruptured. One ear has a blocked tube, the other is partially blocked. So we were only off the antibiotics 10 days and we are back on them again. So I am calling the Ear, nose and Throat specialist on monday morning to get him in asap. This can't go on like this anymore! He is miserable, I don't get any sleep and we are paying on an expensive medical bill from the hospital and it hasn't helped at all! I don't know what else they can do, but something has to happen! I do feel bad for not getting him in any earlier than I did. He had a fever for four days, but I kinda thought it might be from the shots he had at his checkup last week. I feel guilty for waiting so long to get him in. Sigh..... we will see what the E,N,T doctor says now. Poor little guy!
Jordan was so excited I could hardly get him to hold still.
Josh wasn't feeling well so I am surprised we got one of him not crying.

But even with a long day, long wait and long drive stuck in traffic, Josh did wonderful. He is so much easier to take out then the other two! He continues to amaze us how laid back he is. We sure love him!

He had a little bit of difficulty keeping it in his mouth, but got the hang of it pretty fast!
Sorry the pictures is a little blury, but he was so excited, I couldn't shovel it in fast enough! He would get his mouth open so wide for the next bite... which is very unusual for him. I have to usually coax him to open even for things he really likes.
So I think it is safe to say he LOVES it, right? Maybe I can use this to my advantage!!
I have no idea what Jordan was doing in this picture, but I let him help me pick out the ones to post.... so this is what we are posting!

I took Josh into the Doctor for his 12 month appointment today. It was a little late, but his pediatrician was on vacation the week of his birthday.
So, Josh weighed in at 19lb 15 oz, which is a loss from his visit last week. He is in the 20th percentile for weight. His heighth was 31 inches, and in the 50th percentile. He is barely maintaining his weight for now, so we are going to have to watch it close. His therapist is weighing him every week when she comes and it has been bouncing around a little. As long as we don't lose anymore, we will be OK.
His Dr is more concerned over his head again, and the ridge along the top of his head is noticably more pronounced. So next week we have an appt with a specialist at Primary Children's Medical Center to see where we go now. I had a hunch it was getting worse, but didn't want to think about it, so it still was a little surprising we are headed to Salt Lake. We don't know what comes next, other than probably a Cat Scan of his brain.
His eating is still the same and we don't really have any more news in that area. We are starting sign language with him since both the Dr and therapist have highly suggested it since he will be delayed in speech with his oral delays. So I guess it is time to break out the refresher on sign language.
On a more positive note... his ears are cleared up! So we are happy for that at least. He was given some shots today, so he will be whiney for awhile again. But at least we got rid of one thing! It was really good to hear.
So, we will keep everyone updated on our visit to the Dr next week, and in the meantime if anything exciting happens... we'll let you know!

It was a fun day and Parker was wonderful for me. It also gave me an idea of where I still need to do a bit of baby-proofing for when Josh is walking. Fun stuff!

He LOVES his carseat now that he can face forward. He weighs 20 lb exactly so we turned him since he gags alot in the car and I can never see how bad it is... I have to rely on Trevor and Jordan to tell me what is going on.

I am supposed to list 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, and 3 suprising facts about myself.
3 joys - watching my kids make progress or accomplish the things they are working on, spending time as a family, and helping someone who truly needs it.
3 fears - one of my family members getting hurt, someone dying that I am close to, and not doing a good enough job raising my kids.
3 current obsessions/collections - blogging is the first one, reading other people's blogs, and keeping my house clean of foods Josh is allergic to. (That is not one I would do if I had a choice though)
3 suprising facts about me - I like to organize and keep things clean, I like country music more than I used to, and I spend about 3-4 hours a day working with Trevor and Josh on different therapy goals.
I decided to tag: Brittany, Tanya, Alison, Ann and Scott (even though we share a blog)

This was taken last night at a family party at Scott's sister, Raeanne's house. My neice, Aliyah, had her first birthday on May 29th. So we did a combo party for both kids since their birthdays are only 3 days apart. As you can see in this picture, he was not thrilled with opening presents.
One more time.... he was not happy or even interested in anything he got last night.
And here is Aliyah, she loved opening her presents. I didn't get any of her eating her cake since my camera batteries died and I forgot to bring new ones, but it was funny!
Here is a funny picture of Jordan and Jarron. Jordan was so cold from swimming and Jarron kept trying to tell him how to get warm. It was cute!
Luke, Ryan, Kyrie and Amy Wayment
Here is my new adorable nephew, Ryan. He was blessed today and I thought I would post some pictures of him here. He was born on April 14th. He was 5lb 14 oz and 18 inches long. He is so dang cute! I am going to miss watching him grow up! My sister and bro-in-law are moving to Philadelphia on July 7th. Luke is going to Med school at Temple University. They will be gone for the next few years. It's not going to be fun for us to miss out on the kids growing up. Oh well... you do what you have to do!
