Back in Service

I have been MIA this week and it's not due to laziness...my laptop decided to crash due to a virus!! A few days at the hospital(Best Buy) and she is all better. And luckily my hard drive was saved because who actually listens to the tech guys and backs up there hard drive?? Not me.

To catch you all up...

B had his 18 month check up last weekend. Still no teeth but he gets a gold star from the pediatrician. He got his second flu shot as there is a stain going around right now and (knock on wood) B has not been sick this winter. Really he has only had two small colds his whole life. I guess 5 months in the hospital with meningitis makes up for never having a cold, LOL. He's good for a few years at least right?

B is 25lb 4oz - 32.5" (50th % for both).



I had another Pinterest success for dinner. Easy Garlic Chicken. Yum!! And thank you to Whole Foods for having twice baked in the deli!!

Recipe found here. I listened to the reviews and added some sweet onion and cooked 375* for 30 min. It was yummy!

B got his stander (finally). He likes it so far. We will aim for one hour a day and then go up from there. He looks so unhappy in this pic but right after I took it he was all smiles.


His chair also came, you can see in the back of this pic. We are waiting for a different head support for the chair and then he will be able to play and eat in his chair too.  The EI (early intervention) is amazing. We get all this equipment for free from the state. It's such a huge help, this equipment is really expensive!

It has been Spring in Chicago!!! Gorgeous sunny weather!!! 50's/60's/ and even 70's. My winter boots are packed and my flats are out!!!! Next up is a much needed pedicure!!

Little man is cuter than ever. Melts my heart.



We got a sound machine and I don't know what I did without this. B was using his sleep sheep. Great in theory but the timer only goes to 45 min. B would wake up every 45 min when the sheep turned off. In turn waking us up. It was not fun. Finally we found a sound machine that has a timer option but will play all night!!! Hallelujah! B has been sleeping so well and so have I, the sound machine is amazing!! Why didn't I think of this sooner. (Preggo moms or new moms...don't get the sleep sheep or baby sound machines...get a regular sound machine...way better)

Hey Heather - love the pics! He is getting so big. can I ask which sound machine you got? we've got a twilight turtle and it's timer is 30 minutes - and he ALWAYS wakes up shortly after (except at night)

White noise machines are the BEST! There is one in every bedroom in our house. I recommend them to EVERYONE. I can't sleep without mine! ;)

Boo to your computer crashing! I take it you are not a Mac girl (me, either!) Love Pinterest... if I can't find something there, it's not going to be found anywhere!! And of course, B is as cute as ever!

That second picture of Brayden and his tongue is absolutely precious - could not be cuter! Glad you're both getting better sleep; we love the grown-up sound machine at our house as well!
