A weekly wrap-up

So this week was rather busy... first off it was a 4 day work week as I had Monday off. The beautiful thing being the boys had school and I took little man to daycare! I know, I know it could've been quality time with them but truthfully I had a lot to do for a consignment sale I am taking part in! There's no way I would've gotten anything done with my boys home!

So Christian had a follow-up at the Pedi Cardiac doctor. No change, he still has a leaky valve but shouldn't suffer any consequences for it. He does need to take his allergy meds regularly... CHRISTIAN, pay attention if you are reading this!!!

Case had his first appointment with the allergist. I expected it to be pretty rough and it was. Poor sweet boy was not friends with his nurse once she was done. Thank goodness for iPhone, you tube and a little boy fascination with fire trucks. I was able to distract him for the 10 minute wait. The bad news is he is allergic to peanuts and some outdoor molds. Hopefully with regular allergy medication we will be on to new and better things!

All in all Kaden had a pretty good week! He is currently a avid collector of all things bey-blades. I don't get it, its just a glorified top but whatever makes him happy. It must be a boy thing. All of his friends are also into them too!

I called a Realtor and officially have an appointment next week to see what our house is worth and whether or not it will be beneficial for us to sell. So here's hoping for good news. Lord knows we did not get good news with our taxes.

Valentines Day

Today is Valentines Day! I like this holiday! I think its fun to give gifts to my honey and my boys but also I love all of the pinks and reds! Its the girly girl in me I guess!

Last year I had alot of fun with my little guy! I seriously doubt that I could recreate this... he is much to wiggly and mobile! I am sure he would run and smear those hard to get kisses everywhere... but that's ok. I sure do love this little guy! He makes our world go 'round! 

This Valentines day will most likely be a little different. But thats ok. Chris and Kaden have a date to go to the Monster Trucks. Christian will be off with Bri on a date,  so I am more than willing to have a fun little date with my sweet baby boy! I am not sure yet what we will do but I am sure we will figure it out! 

I think that Chris and I will eventually have a date just the two of us but we can wait! We have precious boys that will not wait. They are growing and changing everyday. I don't want to miss a single minute if we can help it!

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Gafford Imfirmary

This has been a rough week in the Gafford family. This momma has been sick in bed for the last 3 days and am just now feeling good enough to be back at work and in the land of the living. I knew it was coming, could feel the tell tale signs that I was about to be sick but hoped and prayed and even medicated to stop it BUT alas, it hit and hit hard. The hard part of me being sick this week is it's also Chris' safety meeting week. This means that my poor husband is up and at work by 6 AM Tuesday through Thursday not counting the drive and set up time. So essentially he is up at 4am. Which means its just a rough week for him anyway. 

Tuesday night when Kaden got home, he says his throat hurts... somewhere inside of me, my thoughts were along the lines of "yeah right kid, you just want to be home cause Im home!" But no, Wednesday morning he woke up with a pretty nasty cough which meant that he probably needed to see the pediatrician. Turns out he not only has sinusitis like his mom but also bronchitis which is never good with this kid since he is so prone to pneumonia. So Kaden and I were sicky buddies Wednesday and Thursday! Thankfully he felt better today too!

Just to top the week off right though, Case came home from daycare on Wednesday afternoon with alot of drainage in his left ear. Keep in mind this kid had tubes put in last year and has done wonderful! Anyways, because I have the best husband in the world, he came back to the house after his safety meeting yesterday and took Case to see the Dr. and yep, a stupid ear infection. Thankfully since he is already on antibiotics, he just got ear drops. 

So, if you see us around this weekend, ignore the puffy eyes, red noses and awful coughing. We are finally on the mend. Also say a prayer that Chris and Christian avoid getting sick!
