Regardless, it was a great weekend! Friday night Connor stayed at Grandma and Grandpa Bode so Bryan and I could go out. SUPER fun time, we needed it! Thanks Nate and Cheryl!
Saturday we relaxed...(ie took some great naps), ran some errands and then headed to town to check out the rides, food and fireworks. Connor was a trooper, enjoyed the rides, loved the playground and did awesome through the fireworks! When the finale was over he pointed at the sky and laughed.
LOVES buttons and also discovered the horn.
A few things I noticed were humorous...it appears he started on cue in the beginning. He pauses for a split second then I must have been making some great hand motions in the background trying to get him to take a bite.
Takes a bite, then threatens to throw the fork over. When he smiles...that's in response to me shaking my head and mouthing as big as I can "NO CONNOR"...and then you see him scrunch his face and then he drops the fork.
Then the rest of the clip is pointless. Sorry about that.
Yes, I know it's June and it's been warm lately, but it was 7:30 in the morning so I felt a sweatshirt and hat were necessary.
Regardless, much 'happier' lately and drooling much less already.
What a WONDERFUL weekend! Can't wait for more weekends like this!
Probably tucking his hair behind his ears. Seems to need a hair cut again. But, I think the curls are gone forever :( I had someone tell me when they gave their child their first cut and cut off all of the curls...they never came back. Why oh why couldn't that have happened to me!?!?
Aren't they cool?
That was the chiropractors response when asking me a series of questions about my labor and delivery with Connor.
Let me back up a bit.
About two weeks ago we found ourselves once again in the pediatricians office with another ear infection. Words such as 'chronic' and 'tubes' were definitely spoken so we just were hoping that the latest prescribed antibiotic would do the trick.
In the mean time, and actually prior to, I've spoken to more than one mom that has told me about amazing results from going to the chiropractor. (insert leery, skeptical face here) So, we did our ten days of antibiotics again and after two days being off, he woke up to having mattery eyes. UGH. So, I called the chiropractor and made an appointment for yesterday.
So we go into his little office where he asks me some questions, some of which included:
Were you induced?
Why? Were you overdue?
Was labor long and somewhat difficult?
Were forceps or a vacuum used?
Literally, that's how part of the conversation went. So, he showed me on his little spine model what could be going on, tells me how he actually adjusted two of his daughters in the delivery room before cutting the umbilical cord (eek, scary!).
Sorry this post is getting really long.
So, we go back into the room where he checks Connor out, said his ears weren't necessarily infected anymore but they were still full of fluid. So does a little more prodding around (Connor did awesome) and then told me he was going to try and adjust him. I've personally never been adjusted, but have seen it done, and truly, did NOT expect him to do that with a little kid. I seriously felt like he was going to twist his head off. BUT...again, Connor did spectacular. Didn't even get close to crying. Just kept looking at the chiropractor. I on the other hand, was MUCH more freaked out and shocked at what I just let happen to my child. BUT...it couldn't have been even remotely bad since Connor didn't give any indication of being in pain or freaked out or anything. Must be okay, right? :):)
That said, we went back today for round 2, said his ears had already started draining, only had to adjust one side and off we went. Said this could ultimately help with his runny noses and everything. Down side...he wants to see Connor 3x a week for three weeks (one of which will be done after we go again tomorrow morning), 2x a week for 2 weeks and 1x a week for 4 more weeks. That's A LOT...but...I don't know. I think I'm sold on it so far. If an infection comes back I guess during the course of this treatment, maybe then I'll decide to go back to the pediatrician for it and explore our next option.
Again, sorry for such a long post, but that's about all I have new to report the last few days.
Anne's nephew Joshua. Isn't that hair awesome? Wait til you see his sister.
Josh is 1 1/2, so he helped me not miss Connor as much :)
