Bag Tag....

1) Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house. No cheating!

2) I want to know how much it cost:) And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.

3) Tag some chicks.

Ok... so I have like 4 bags... no lie!!! I'll have 5 SOON... I'm getting a Tracy Joy bag like Brittany's :) So, here goes...

Bag #1 - can't leave home without little man's diaper bag. I must say I like and hate this bag... it's not the pretty bag I had picked out when I was pregnant that was like $80 and that Dean said if I bought he would refuse to carry... no it's a $20 Jeep diaper bag from Wally World..... BUT... I can fit sooooo much stuff in it :)

Bag #2 - my actually purse... though most of the time it makes it to the car and sits there and every once in a while I manage to dig something out of it, I never leave the house without it... oh, I got it from All Wet Sports (lol) for like $35 or $40 I think... it's been a while!

Bag #3 - my make-up bag... again never leave home without it, but it mostly just sits in the car... no clue what I paid for it... lol, can't even remember where I got it!

and lastly Bag #4 - this is the purse that I try to change to when I don't have little man with me... which isn't very often.... bought it for $30

ok... So I'm tagging....

Long Day

Sorry guys... this one is kinda long....

Well my long day started last night. Poor little man just hasn't been his usual self since about Monday. Last night he started running a fever :( I felt so bad for him.. all he really did last night was cry and it took forever to finally get him calm enough to go to sleep. So finally at about 11 (which is about an hour and a half past his bed time). Well we go to bed and I can hear him in there waking up about every 45 minutes give or take. He would wake up move around, cry a little and then go back to sleep after about 5 minutes. Then at 1:30 I get woke up by a screaming baby. I went and got him out of his crib, changed him, cleaned out his little nose, put more saline in his nose, put some baby vapor rub on his shoulders, gave him more tylenol, and then got him back to sleep. Oh and checked him temp... it was 101 on the dot. I had to wake up Dean so that he could get the humidifier down and get it going and then daddy got bonus points for thinking on his toes. We were trying to figure out a way for Zane to sleep at an incline on his stomach. We'd thought about the boppy but his face tended to get down into the pillow and he just will not sleep on his back. So daddy came up with the idea of putting a pillow under his mattress so that it would raise the bed and he wouldn't have anything different under him.. way to go daddy. That seemed to do the trick and we went back to bed for the night.

Little man slept till almost 8 this morning.. but still waiting up during the night about every 45 minutes. Then we did things all over again.. changed him, cleaned out his nose, more saline, more baby vapor rub, more tylenol and breakfast. Then around 9 I laid him back down so him and mommy could catch some more z's since we didn't get too much the night before. Then we got up, ran the routine and played a little... well tried... he was still screaming here and there... I knew the poor little guy didn't feel well. We both ate lunch and then I went to pick him up off his bean bag chair and he was so hot that he was soaked from head to toe. At that point there was no more contemplating on taking him to the doctor we were going. I called the ped a little before 2 and the nurse was on the phone so I had to leave a message. No big deal... they're always good about returning calls. So I finished getting us ready and left the house to head into Jacksonville.

My first stop was the bank... I figured if they hadn't called back by the time I was done I was going to call again. So at 3:15 I called... the nursed line was still busy... I wasn't leaving another message, so I called back and hit 0... you know you always hit 0, lol! anyways.. the lady answered and I told her that I had called an hour ago and that my son needed to be seen today. She said no problem and transfered me to the nurse. I spoke with her told her everything that was going on and that I knew he had a cold and I thought that he may be teething. She asked if he was tugging at his ears and I answered by saying not that I've noticed, lol, his hands are always in his mouth. Then she told me exactly what I thought she would... sounds like he has a cold and he's teething. A temp is ok just watch him. I told her that I would feel so much better if they would just let me bring him in and have them look at him that I thought that there may be a little more to it. I mean he has never teethed before, but he's never screamed like this either. So she agreed that if I thought there was more to go ahead and bring him in. The only open appointment was at 5... so we wasted a little time and got there early so that I could feed him before we got in there.... lol, according to the last doctor he shouldn't be eating baby food just yet :)

Dean had decided to leave work a little early and meet me over to see what they had to say. We got into the room and did the normal routine. He now weighs 14 pounds and 13 ounces (75%) and he was still running a fever of 100.7 Then a little later the doctor came in. The first thing she said when she walked in the room was that he was def teething. :) And said that a fever that high wouldn't be related to the teething that it was a little too high for that. She asked how he was eating.. here we go, I wasn't going to lie about the fact that he's been eating baby food for about a month now, lol! I told her "Well I guess I'm fixing to get yelled at but... he's eating his baby food just fine, especially if I feed him bananas..." then she stopped me and said "No, it's ok that he's eating baby food... I'm not one of those doctors, if he's hungry feed him" I thought I was going to hit the floor! then I finished "well his formula he's not eating so well... he usually eats about a 7oz bottle and he's getting down about 2 then stopping... then he'll want to finish it about an hour later" Then I told her our routine and want we were doing and giving him.. and she told us we were doing everything right. So then she checked his breathing... nothing in the lungs.. great! Def had a cold... but nothing more. Then on to the ears... :( Right Ear Infection!! My face dropped. I looked at Dean and said "I'm sure glad I followed that gut instinct that something else was wrong... can you imagine what tonight or yesterday would have been like?!?!" The doctor completely agreed and apologized for telling the nurse that she thought it was just a cold and that he didn't really need to be seen yet. She said that she was actually surprised he wasn't fussy (he was all smiles when we got there, like nothing was wrong!). I told her about 30 minutes ago you wouldn't have said that, lol, he was screaming bloody murder!

So we got a script for some antibiotics that he started tonight... went through that usually sick routine ... gave him a bath with the johnson's baby vapor bath and put him to bed. He's sleeping as I type on his inclined bed, with his froggy humidifier going and listening to his bedtime cd that his daddy made for him, lol! I'm so relieved that I pushed him being seen today... I'm sure it would have been a really rough night had I not.

Hope everyone else's day was much less rough than ours :)

A Case of the Mondays

I was so out of it this morning when I woke up. Zane woke up at his usual 8am and I asked Dean to please go get him. lol, Dean was at work! I forgot it was Monday. So I got out of bed and started my usual morning routine. After breakfast I put Zane in his bouncer and that didn't last long.. he usually is in it about 20 minutes bouncing, looking around, watching the tv.... this morning he might have been in there a total of 3 minutes! not a good sign. So I got him out and started talking to him and playing with him and he just started screaming.

So my question for all the mommies is at what age to babies start teething? He's had his hands in his mouth for about the past 2 weeks maybe... constantly chewing on them or anything he can get in his mouth... and the drool, oh the drool, lol! I gave him some tylenol and that seemed to really help so I kept that up all day.

So I believe Zane is either teething or had a case of the Mondays. Anyways... Dean comes home tonight and Zane acts like nothing is wrong and he hasn't been crying all day... talk about aggravating... it's like I made the whole thing up... though he did keep his hands in his mouth and completely soaked Dean's shirt with drool(lol). Oh, and Dean brought me home a red bull this afternoon... lol, he later said to me "Wouldn't you much rather me bring you home a Red Bull than flowers?"

I had every intension in making dinner tonight... but we decided to just order some food and I decided that I would go and get it.... a little quiet time... So I loaded up Bailey to go get some dinner, while Daddy and Zane played on the internet looking at boats.... don't ask.....

I completely told everything out of order but today has been an off day... anyways.. here are some pics from today... I'm off to have some alone time with Dean... and hoping tom is a better day :)

Little man when he first woke up this morning...

The I-dog... mommy's new favorite thing for Zane... he's mesmerized by the lights...

Daddy and Zane looking at boats

Me and my flowers.. lol, I mean Red Bull...

Bad Beginning....

So I woke up on the completely wrong side of the bed this morning, before my feet hit the ground it was bad mood central. I mean it was bound to happen sooner or later right... it's been a while since I've been on the dark side, lol!

So Dean had been up since like 5am for whatever reason and fed Zane at 8, right on schedule. I on the other hand over slept for church. I was so mad! 20 minutes is no where enough time for me to get ready and look decent for church much less get Zane ready too! Well I had Dean get Zane's bag ready and dress him in the outfit I quickly grabbed from the dryer, while I tried to throw myself together. 20 minutes later I was dressed, hair and make-up some what ok and looking for shoes.... so then I find my shoes and then proceed out the door behind Dean to leave... looks like we would make it after all. Then we get into the car and I ask Dean for the keys (I needed to drive to get us there in decent timing). Dean says "I thought you had them, I mean YOU DID drive it last" UHHHHH! Wrong thing to say! I got out of the car, slammed the door and proceeded to go inside and look for the keys, but not before slamming the house door too... and making the lovely comment of "It's just not meant for us to go to church this morning!" Finding everything inside me to just give up and stay home I found the keys and tried to adjust my attitude as quickly as possible... I mean what reason did I really have to be this upset over stupid car keys! So we got to church just as they were starting. This was also the first time we left Zane in the nursery. I can't believe I didn't take a picture (granted the camera was at the house, lol, it might have been a little helpful). This mornings sermon was about Marriage and Finances. It was a great sermon. Of course I have no notes to share because I forgot my Bible that had my pen and paper in it at home... imagine that! lol!

So once church was over and my attitude was more in check we decided to get Micheal's deli for lunch... rabbit food is exactly what we got... remember we're still trying to loose that baby fat. Anyways, we get home and we put Zane in his bouncer.

I still had the balloons from Chrissy's shower yesterday so I tied the to the curtain rod so that Bailey could play with them... lol, here are the pictures from that...

I also started cleaning out the 0-3 month section of Zane's clothes. If he was shorter he could sit wear most of them... There is still plenty of room width wise. I have to say that I'm quite proud of my self... I only kept I think maybe a total of 5 outfits that I just couldn't turn loose. Next I decided to go ahead and pull out his 3-6 months clothes so that I could get them washed and put up. He still has plenty of 0-3 months, which doesn't surprise me... I have went a bit over board with clothes for him (if we'd had a girl we'd be in some serious trouble).. most of his clothes he's wore a matter of maybe 3 times! and considering the fact that he goes through 2-3 outfits during the day... well we'll just say that's a lot of clothes! and he's 3-6 month stock is just the same.

Anyways, after Zane's dinner tonight he was taking his bib off before putting him to bed and stopped half way and said "hahaha, look he's a nun!" I had to run and grab the camera to take a pic, though it doesn't look nearly as funny as it was.

After Zane went to bed Dean and I spend some time together watching a movie. So anyways... today didn't start very well but I couldn't ask for a better end to my day than having laughs with Dean and Zane and some alone time. Hope everyone had a great Sunday.

Fun Filled Saturday

I forgot to post this to Thurday's blog, but that night we ended up doing Zane's hand and foot prints. I was going to do this when he was a newborn and some how never did... so what better time than when he's 3 months!

I think Bailey is enjoying Zane's puppet monkey way more than him. He just kinda looks at it like what in the heck is that thing!? Here are some pictures of us playing with her, had to make a slide.. there were too many funny ones.....

My Saturday was busy but full of fun. I started out the morning meeting Brittany in Hilliard to go take Family pictures in Fernandina. We had a blast!! Here is a teaser... follow me on my new photography blog for more...

After finishing pictures Brittany and I decided to go back around and take location pictures... I've been trying to go to every location that I shoot and take pictures so that I don't have to try and explain what all the possibilities are... plus I know I'd much rather see than try and listen to see what something looks like. Anyways... we decided to have a mini-session ourselves... here are some of us...

Then once we were back in Hilliard, I quickly went home, changed, grabbed Zane and headed off to Chrissy's baby shower. I can't believe Lucas will be here soon!!!

and look at this cake!!!!

lol... then off to Cody and Leslie's house to visit for a little while (I ended up leaving the camera in the car for whatever reason and didn't get any pics). Then we decided to make dinner nice and easy tonight... Subway!!! Once home, we ate... Dean watched a movie and I went through my pictures.... then he lifted weight while I ran on the treadmill (we're both still working on getting the baby weight off, lol). Needless to say I'm pretty exhausted and will be going to bed early tonight! Hope everyone's Saturday was as great as ours!!!

Good Night Everyone!!

3 months

I can't believe that it's been 3 months since I met my little man! Time is flying way to fast... someone really needs to find that pause button! I never could imagine what life would be like once he was here... and I wouldn't trade it for the world! I love him so much!!! Anyways.. I was suppose to get up early this morning and go take some pictures of him before heading to Portrait Innovations for his studio pics... and well I stayed up till a little after 3am working on my new photography website.. so needless to say when Zane laid down for his morning nap, mommy took one too! :) After pictures I had some more errands to run (that seems to never end!) and then off to meet Dean to get some tile.... lol, that's another story in its self! So after everything I didn't get a chance to take any of him today and looks like tom is going to be to cold... boo! So here are some of my favorites from the studio today :)
