Okay, so last night I was at a meeting formally known as enrichment. One of my friends who shall remain nameless(ASHLEE) mentioned that she wasn't going to look at my blog anymore because I never update it. Well it's true I haven't posted for a few months. But I am turning over a new leaf.
October was a busy month for us. First Karver came down with the Hand, Foot, and Mouth virus. It lasted about a week and a half and he was miserable the whole time.
Then we went to Oregon and visited my family. It was great to see them all. karver had a blast, but traveling was hard on him.
A few days after we got home he started running a fever and and was very ornery and sad. We chalked it up to teething thinking he's drooling a ton adn he has a low grade fever. Wrong. Later his mouth broke out in white sores. I gues he came down with a mouth virus that is related to herpes most children get it and don't notice. Not my son, the dentist said he had an extreme case. Normally most kids get over it in 10 days or less. karver took 14 days. 14 days of pain that we couldn't really do anything for him except keep him drugged on Infant Motrin and Tylenol. Yes he was on day 10 on Halloween. But being the kind parents we are, still stuck in his chubby costume and wandered the neighborhood with him. Nevertheless I am glad this October is over and am hoping to keep the kid healthy for a few weeks at least. Here's hoping.
Here are some pictures of our adventures amidst the viruses.
Here is Karver at this awesome park near mt mom's house. He had so much fun climbing up and then sliding down.
We finally resorted to chocolate chip cookies to bribe Karver to be good in the car. This is what he looked like at the end of our 12 hour drive up to Oregon.
