A night without screaming!

That's what we got tonight. My ears actually got a break....ahhhhhh! We had a really good night. I came home from work and fed Greyson dinner and then we went straight to the bath tub for a long, fun bath! I am so glad that he loves baths as much as he does. He is a little fishy! Here are some cute pics from his bath!

Also I just wanted to say Good Luck to Rachel and JD with their new place in Texas. I had such a great time hanging out with you and I realize how much I love our friendship. I wish we didn't live so far from one another. But, we would probably just end up in trouble together, LOL just joking! I love ya girl!

Ringing ears........literally

Greyson has been screaming my freakin ears off. SCREAMING SCREAMING SCREAMING is all I have heard for 3 days straight. Not because he is in pain...just to SCREAM! I am about to scream or maybe pull my hair out! He went through a screaming stage a little while ago and that was nothing compared to this. My poor ears......help.....Calgon take me away.........

Greyson honey, Mommy still loves you!

re: Hand Foot and Mouth

He still has this. Some of the little blisters have popped. Last night he woke up ever single hour screaming. I don't see anything in his mouth, but he's drooling like CRAZY like it hurts to swallow or something. I slept with him on the recliner so I could be with him. It was a horrible night.Carlos let me sleep for like 3 hours today. How will I ever get him to the sitter and me to work tomorrow if we have another night like that? Ugh!

Hand Foot and Mouth virus....

This is what's been going around at Greyson's sitters for the past week. I have been watching him to make sure he doesn't have any signs of it. This is a virus that causes blisters on the hands, feet and in the mouth. 2 kids are out because of this virus. They say that it can be caused by playing with infected toys from other kids who have the virus. Well last night I noticed these little bumps all real close together on his knee but wasn't real concerned because Greyson is a target for Mosquitos it seems. This morning he looked like he had a couple of bumps on his lil rear but it didn't look real serious or anything. So, I go to put him in his car seat this morning and I see this what looks like a scabbed scratch in the bottom of his lip. It wasn't a blister though. I figured he just bit his lip or something. So anyway, I get a call from the babysitter that she is concerned that he too has the HFM virus. So I took him to the DR and sure enough he has it too. The thing I'm confused about is why doesn't he have these little blisters on his hand-foot-or in his mouth? They are on his legs, his lil butt, and one on each wrist in the crease. They said that as long as he doesn't have a fever then he is not contagious and that he looks like it will be a mild case of it. LET'S HOPE SHE'S RIGHT. He was sooooooo super fussy when I was putting him to sleep. He just sounded really uncomfortable. I couldn't wait until he was asleep. I just wanted him to feel better. Well, that's what's going on at my house. Hopefully it doesn't last long at all!

Facts about the virus

What is hand, foot, and mouth disease?

Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) is a common illness of infants and children. It is characterized by fever, sores in the mouth, and a rash with blisters. HFMD begins with a mild fever, poor appetite, malaise ("feeling sick"), and frequently a sore throat. One or 2 days after the fever begins, painful sores develop in the mouth. They begin as small red spots that blister and then often become ulcers. They are usually located on the tongue, gums, and inside of the cheeks. The skin rash develops over 1 to 2 days with flat or raised red spots, some with blisters. The rash does not itch, and it is usually located on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. It may also appear on the buttocks. A person with HFMD may have only the rash or the mouth ulcers.

Is HFMD serious?

Usually not. HFMD caused by coxsackievirus A16 infection is a mild disease and nearly all patients recover without medical treatment in 7 to 10 days. Complications are uncommon. Rarely, the patient with coxsackievirus A16 infection may also develop "aseptic" or viral meningitis, in which the person has fever, headache, stiff neck, or back pain, and may need to be hospitalized for a few days. Another cause of HFMD, EV71 may also cause viral meningitis and, rarely, more serious diseases, such as encephalitis, or a poliomyelitis-like paralysis. EV71 encephalitis may be fatal. Cases of fatal encephalitis occurred during outbreaks of HFMD in Malaysia in 1997 and in Taiwan in 1998.

Greyson's girlfriend Lorelai

My friend Ray Ray is here with her squishy baby girl Lorelai and let me tell you she wanted Greyson BAD, LOL. It was SO cute. She kept rolling over trying to lay in his lap. Then at one point they even played footsies! When we left Greyson wouldn't quit talking about how beautiful she was. He said it was love at first sight........awwwwww.

Oh yeah Lorelai....Greyson wrote this letter in the car on the way home.

Dear Lorelai,
You give great massages! Thank you!

Greyson (but YOU can call me Grey)

Why does it look like............

My son is a toddler in these pictures? I took these today and about crapped when I realized he doesn't look like a baby anymore but a toddler. I can't believe how fast my little guy is growing up!


And...it's fixed!

That's all I can say right now! I am so happy and excited but I have to get off here as I have spent way too much time on this computer! Toodles!

Computer virus...YAY!

Not really yay!I am so disgusted right now. I have a virus on my computer and it's quarantined but I can barely get on my computer because of all the stupid pop-ups. So, that's why I haven't been online in a little bit. I am so mad at how long it takes my NEW computer to do anything. My computer used to go so fast. Well, not right now. So, once I get this fixed I will back in action, but for now I am taking a little break!

What a great 4th of July!

Yesterday we sang the National Anthem and America for our cities parade. There were hundreds and hundreds of people there. We had to stand in the middle of the street that was closed off for the parade. It was SOOOO FUN! This video is of us singing it last night after the fact just to record it.
