So I thought I would give everyone an update on our little guy.
Ever since we found out about the asthma we have been really concerned with his oxygen levels. No matter what we did they never seemed to be getting better. The doctors usually want to see at least a 95 score. Even that is cause for concern most times. Noah's oxygen was at 85 the first time. With treatment we could work really hard and maintain at around 90-92. So since things wernt progressing and improving much the doctor decided to get another X-ray. (funny story, but I will save it for another time) Turns out he has Bronchitis on top of everything!!! Ugh. This poor guy just cant catch a break. So the antibiotics seemed to be doing the trick until this weekend. The wheezing, coughing, sleepless, irritability is back in full force. Looks like we are trekking back to the doctor tomorrow morning to see whats going on now. I just want my little guy to be happy again. This sucks.
{don't mind the hobo toe. his crawling style tends to wear out his PJs a little on the toes}

my mind is taking a vacation!

So I haven't been blogging much lately. Theres a reason...
I have no room in my head left for silly tribulations such as blogging,
or getting decently dressed for that matter...
Ive been so ridiculously busy that I havent had the time to post anything.
First we had Eli's birthday party.
Really it was a hit. I made an awesome Dinosaur birthday cake and we had alot of friends and family over. I thought I was getting all of the festivities on film, but I wasnt. There was no memory card in my camera. Yup Im a big fat dummy.
But heres a cute picture of the big 3 year old on his birthday from Grandma's camera.
Eli gots lots of cool presents and really enjoyed hanging out with everyone and being the center of attention. A big plus for Eli. Here he is with his Uncle Lester.
Happy Birthday Sweet Boy.
Next reason my brain has decided to take a hiatus.
We all know about Eli's asthma right?
Well guess who decided to follow in big brother's footsteps and the totally out-do him?
Noah has been diagnosed with severe asthma. Which is pretty bad for a child under the age of 1 year to even be diagnosed. Ugh. We have breathing treatments every 2 hours and oral steroids twice a day. This I can handle. What I cant handle is the medication is making him C.R.A.Z.Y.
He is so fidgety and he just wails all day. Then he dosent sleep. AT ALL. He wakes every hour on the hour. Last night it was every 1/2 hour. IM DEAD.
He actually isnt a great sleeper anyway. With Eli he was sleeping through the night at three months after we decided to let him "cry it out" one night. He cried for 45 minutes and has slept fine ever since. I feel like I cant do this with Noah because of his asthma. Any suggestions??
Eli wanted to give Noah is "Dragon" treatment.
Noah wanted to play with tubes.
On a lighter note...
Noah is one of the funniest crawlers Ive ever met. Its like he thought
"Hey whats the hardest most painful way to crawl?"
And that what he does. He gets up on his hands and TIP-TOES and instead of crawling he launches himself forward and lands on his tummy. Really? Yup. But hey its cute right?

Battle of Wills

Oh man.
I am at my wits end. I have no idea how to deal with my "willful" son.
Here's an example of today's escapade.
Eli woke from his nap in an obvious sour mood.
I saw this and tried to intercede with hugs and cuddles. Not exactly what he wanted. After a while I asked him to help clean up the toys he left in the living room.
{Hes 3 he can clean up after himself right?}
Tantrum #1... He whined and cried and stomped and told me that I should just do it. Not cute.
So he finally cleaned up the toys
{After threatening to throw them away}
As I continued to clean the house he just followed me whining and being obnoxious
So I gave him a snack and told him to play in his room while I cleaned.
Well I didn't get much cleaning done because he screamed and yelled and came out of his room every 30 seconds saying, "I dont want to!! This is bad!! I cant deal with this"
{the last one was funny the 1st time not so much the 20th}
At the 1/2 hour mark I thought to myself...
Am I taking this too far? I just want him to behave, to do as I say.
Its just exhausting. I dont want my son to be defiant and rude.
So he stayed in there until he could sit quietly and play with his toys.
That took an HOUR AND A HALF.
Am I wrong? How do I deal with my stubborn but sweet boy?

Crawling or Flopping?

Poor little guy...
He just wants to move SOO bad. He gets the idea of crawling...
But not quite. Almost...
He gets up on his hands and knees, rocks back and forth,
and just flops himself a couple of inches.
Then cries.
Its so frustrating to be little.
Poor little guy.
