Still Alive and Kicking!

Warning very long post ahead...proceed with caution!
I am a HUGE slacker and thank you everyone who let me know just how big of a slacker I am! I have been so bad a taking pictures lately and even worse about wanting to post them. Here are some very random pictures that we have taken during our little break from blogging.

Jack has learned the joys of playing with his toys which makes for a messy basement but a very happy child.

Blurry but funny!

Jack has a beautiful new smile that he flashes every time I whip out the camera.

Jack had been battling a cold/ear infection for the past few weeks. I took him to the doctor and they put him on an antibiotics. After realizing that the ear infection was not gone they put him on another. Once again the new antibiotic did not work, lovely. So they decided to pull out their big guns and give Jack a very strong dose of antibiotics which is given in the form of a shot. Side not: I do not recommend this form of antibiotics! It is very painful and not worth it in my opinion!
The shot really upset Jack;s stomach and he ended up with the worse diaper rash! Ouch! Here is a picture of me trying to let his poor little bum air out. Thank goodness he is all better!

If only the weather would cooperate! I love seeing the flowers bloom and going on walks with Jack but I sink into a depression every time the temperature drops. Sun please come and stay for a while, oh how we miss you!
These are right outside our house. i love to look at them!

Here are some random pictures that Dan took of Jack. He loves his bottle still as you can see (a little habit i am not looking foward to breaking!)

Oh no! I am in trouble...already trying to get into moms wallet!

Jack is so fun right now and learning new things every day. Like how to climb out of his crib, or how to climb up on the stool and then on the counter, or how to wiggle his way out of his high chair even when he is strapped in, and opening the gate that is suppose to be child proof...just to name a few. YIKES I am in for it!

I finally got a gym membership and it has awesome day care so I can finally get in shape. YEAH!!

Dan's brother Alex got his mission call to Berlin, Germany. Congrats Al we are so proud and excited! We can't wait to come visit!

Dan and I are going to New York this weekend and Jack is staying home with a very trusted friend. We are so excited to go but I am sure we will miss Jack very much!

It's about TIME!!!! Love all the new pics of Jack. You definitely have your hands full! Sorry if I was weird on the phone the other day, Jake was pulling on a power cord and I was distracted. It was good to catch up with you and hopefully I will get to see you very soon! Love ya!

Sounds like you definitely need a vaca. So we frequently have ear infections and augmentin and omnicef give tate the runs. We use this wonderful medicine call calmoseptine that you get from your pharmicist, you don't need a prescription. It is miraculous. Ear infections suck big time and it is worse with tummy problems. Poor little guy. And yea for a gym membership, it is such a great break. Have so much fun in NYC..I am very jealous.

Yeah! You're back! Love all the new pictures of Jack. Especially that big grin. He's such a ham...
The first paragraph of your "other news" section pretty much sums up my life. Can you imagine if we put Jack and Ella James together? They could really do some damage! Enjoy your much deserved vacation.

Finally lady! I have been wondering if you abandoned your own blog altogether. I just have to say that Jack's cheesy grin is probably the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. I can't believe he loves the camera that much! Super cute.

Have fun in New York! Take lots of pictures!

I love Jack's BIG smile. He looks a lot like your husband. You probably hear that all the time. Anyway, I can't wait to read your post about New York. Have fun!
