day four update

Just a little update on our little "burn victim"...I say that because he looks like he's been burned. It's day four and he is looking much better. The redness is fading and the raised bumps are diminishing. I'm at work right now or else I'd show pictures.

Poor little guy

These last three months have not been very pleasant at the Giles' home. You see, I have this love/hate relationship with daycare. I love that I have had a place to take the boys while I'm in school. I love that Drew has a curriculum and is actually learning something. I love that the boys love their teachers. I hate that it costs so much...seriously, it's ridiculous. I hate that even when the boys don't go, I still have to pay. And I hate....HATE that ever since they started going, Preston has been sick.

I'm not kidding. Since the day he's been in daycare, he's had a cough. He's also fought a rash, runny nose, hand/foot and mouth disease, ear infections, fevers, and now he is fighting an ear infection that was so bad it was bleeding and RSV. What more can this kid get? Well I'll tell you.

Saturday I came home from work to find a HUGE rash all over Preston's body. It is one of those rashes that also come with hives. So off to the Insta-Care we go, (by the way, the Insta-Care is 40 minutes away). Come to find out, Preston is allergic to the Amoxicillin that he's been taking for his ear infection. I mean, really? My kid is allergic to the #1 prescribed antibiotic. Go figure.

So here is what he looks like. Starting with Saturday,Day 1:

Sunday, Day 2:

And you know what gets me the most? Is that he can still be happy through it all. Yes he gets whiny...wouldn't you if you constantly didn't feel good? But he will still play and smile and laugh. I love you little guy. And I sure hope you get over all of this crap.

Brotherly love

This is one of my favorite things! They boys go outside and play, but I often find them just like this! Sitting together on the driveway enjoying each other's company!

I love that they have a place to go and I don't have to worry about them. Yeah we live right on a road that is across from the middle school, but it's not a busy street. And Preston has learned not to go in the street.

They are both still loving the backyard! Drew has been digging out all my weeds! As you can see he has to do it without his shirt! He hasn't gotten far, but lets face it, there are a TON of weeds back there!

We are headed up this weekend to Sandy to see my family. My sister is blessing her beautiful daughter on Sunday. I also have a meeting on Friday with a Nursing program! I'm super excited! Hope all goes well!

Can't wait to see you family! We have been missing you all!

Oh! We've done a bit of decorating in my spare time. It's starting to look like someone lives in the house!!
