A couple of weeks ago Mr. and I packed up the kiddos and headed 750 miles north for miss Amelia's 2nd birthday! Call
us me crazy for taking a 3.5 week old and a 3.5 year old road tripping, but it was probably the easiest trip yet. Both kids were awesome and no tears were shed the entire 11.5 hours going or coming home.
ear drum was bursting and assumed another infection. Nothing that a call into the pediatrician wouldn't fix from the road...and then he completely forgot about his ear and all hell broke loose.
For the next five hours Jackson had terrible stomach cramps every 30 minutes. We were sure that he was getting the stomach flu and poor baby tried to throw up with all his might, but just couldn't make himself. We're still not sure what happened or caused the cramping, but it was terrible.
So instead of getting on the road first thing in the morning, Mr. took Jackson to the pediatrician's office. Like we suspected, he had another ear infection and his stomach was fine by the time they saw the doctor. We waited for a couple prescriptions to be filled and got on the road around 2pm, which put us arriving at my sister's around 2am...it was a long day!
As with all of our trips to St. Louis, they go by way too fast.
Four kids under the age of four makes for a lot of laundry and a crazy, loud house. Lots of diapers were changed, alcohol consumed and precious memories were made.
Over the holidays, we all promised Jackson that he could make a snowman and snow angels while we were in St. Louis. Unfortunately, mother nature didn't keep her promise so we had to find some snow for Jackson. My sister had the great idea to take him snow tubing at Hidden Valley, a little ski resort about a block away from her house.
one year can make. If you remember, it was on Amelia's first birthday that Megan took us all by surprise when she found out she was pregnant. God works in mysterious ways and here we are, one year later, with our baby girls born just 4 months apart.
