Life is Crazy

Crazy busy, that is. I started a new job not too long ago, and things really got in full swing this week (possibly more about that later, but I’m too tired to explain right now).

Last week Stephen and I went on vacation to Atlanta and Chattanooga to celebrate our 5th anniversary (yay!), and poor Charlotte came down with a double ear infection and bronchitis the night before we left (boo!). We ended up having to take her to urgent care because she woke up with a fever of 103, and that’s when we found out she was sick. We were really pretty shocked because she’d had a great weekend and had been sleeping and eating well. After debating canceling our trip, we ended up shortening it on both ends, but we still managed to have some fun together! A few pics:

Charlotte is doing better but is still not 100%. If you recall, she just had tubes put in her ears in NOVEMBER, and one has already come out. Tubes typically come out anywhere from 9-18 months after they’re put in (sometimes even longer), but Charlotte doesn’t settle for average, so hers came out early. ๐Ÿ™‚ And wouldn’t you know it that the very next week after one of them was out, she ended up with the ear infections? I am afraid we’re going to have to redo the tubes sometime in the near future. Our bank account is already weeping. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s been very frustrating because I feel like she is always sick, either with an ear infection or a cough, and I want her to be healthy! Fortunately, God has blessed us with a real trooper, as Charlotte is her happy, bubbly self almost all of the time, except when she’s either tired or hungry (and who isn’t grumpy when tired or hungry?).ย 

What’s new in everyone’s lives? Catch me up!

  1. I hope she feels better soon! I was reading this book recently called “Eat Like a Dinosaur” – it's a paleo cookbook for kids – and the author mentioned her kids has lots of illness and infections until they removed grains and dairy. Same thing happened to a friend here – her son had all sorts of infections until they removed dairy. Maybe Charlotte is allergic?


Tell me your thoughts! I'd love to read them.
