Just an update on Mr. Brayden:  Yesterday we saw the doctor about the “bronchiolitis.” She concluded that I was in-fact right, he doesn’t have it.

Apparently children can wheeze BEFORE showing other symptoms in they are coming down with a viral infection (which is what she guessing the pediatrician in the ER was thinking was going on.)  However, since he hasn’t shown ANY other symptoms and the wheezing seems to have subsided she concluded his wheezing was due to an allergy to something.  She said it could be ANYTHING.  New perfume, laundry soap, food etc… The only thing we can think of is that he was around a cat for the first time the day before. Everything else was the same and there’s no way of knowing 100% unless we expose him again.

Made me feel good that I wasn’t crazy 🙂  We get to discontinue the nebulizer and use as needed for the wheezing if it happens again in the future.  She referred us to an allergist at All Childrens who will help with the milk situation and look more into the pet allergy.  Hoping they can tell us exactly what part of milk he’s allergic to and give us meal building suggestions 🙂

Happy Hump Day!!

Lucky # 7!!

Lucky # 7!!

I spent most the whole morning in awe of my sweet little boy!! Happy, playful, constantly running, sweet little thing!!  I love mornings like I had today.  Me and my boy and our jammies and not a care in the world <3

Then we had nap time………

My sweet loving little boy turned into a cranky, fussy devious little thing!! WHAT HAPPENED!!!??! Momma even resorted to Elmo to help calm his soul, still no luck :/  Eliot came home and we caught glimpses of our sweet little boy, but the fussiness still came and went.  It wasn’t until bath-time that we discovered “lucky # 7.”


HE CUT A NEW TOOTH!!!  Bottom left (his) side.  And this would explain why my boy was mood-swing central 🙂  It’s been sooo long since he last cut a tooth (last 1 was at 10.5 months) I almost forgot how “fun” it is 🙂


Maybe I can keep up this time?

Maybe I can keep up this time?

Haaa! We shall see!!

As part of my New Years resolution I’m trying to get better at chronicling the craziness of our lives.. (A month late… I know!)

Well, where to begin?!


1. YAY for no more football for a while 🙂

2. Sick baby AGAIN :/ They say bronchilitis… But I’m not soo sure.. I know, I’m the crazy person that “thinks” she knows better than the professionals, but tell me this.  How can a baby have bronchilitis and ONLY have wheezing as a symptom?? No runny nose, no cough, no sick baby (other than the wheezing.)  Because our office was closed late Friday night when we experienced the wheezing, I phoned the after-hours doctor and they informed me to immediately take him to the ER (weren’t we just here??!!).. An X-ray and a listen later he determines the “bronchilitis.”  Maybe he does have it and I’m completely crazy (not the first time!) but everything doesn’t add up.  I’m hoping our normal pediatrician will be able to enlighten me sometime this week!

3.  Question:  WHY are Oreos the devil??! I love to hate them 🙂


Here’s a picture from our little monkey today playing outside with his new truck.  Thanks to his Great-Papa and Great-Granny for the gift <3


15 weeks and counting…

15 weeks and counting…

This week marks the 15th week of pregnancy for us YAY!! I really can’t believe time has flown by soo quickly.  Finally there is no more all-day sickness, we’re sleeping better, and got to hear the little Peanut’s heart beat last week!  My food aversions and lack of opinion for food has really taken a toll on us though… I really didn’t think I could get any more picky about the food I eat.. BOY was I wrong!! I’ve become even more picky, and haven’t found much of anything that I love 🙁 I’m hoping that will change SOOON!!!!

This week also marks the beginning of “lizard season” at our house 🙂 Low Rider has been in HEAVEN with all the little baby lizards!! Meanwhile Eliot and I are looking into some form of lizard repellent (jk!)  He just sits at the back door and stares and whines because he wants to go hunt them down lol!! Thankfully, he hasn’t gotten one yet, if he did I think I might cry because all of them are little baby ones 🙂

The rain has also calmed down this week, and poor Bambi has finally been able to calm down since we haven’t had the daily thunder rumble 🙂 She is sooo terrified of the thunder that she hides anytime it rains or even sprinkles.. poor thing!!  Bambi has also been really excited this week, because Aunt Morgan is visiting us! Morgan is her FAVORITE person, I swear I think she loves her more than Eliot and I!!!

Here is this week’s picture of the belly bump!!
