Moving the old blog over!!

Yay!!! After 15 long months and a couple of bouts with some attitude. Sprout has 6 teeth! I am way too excited over this. He has 4 on the top and two on the bottom. Now, I know you're thinking...What? Why does it matter? All babies get teeth? Well, yes, they do but Sprout is 15 months old! Finally he's catching back up to normal.

In other news, Sprout had his 15 month old Dr.s appointment. He did a good job. His pediatrician said he's pretty much a genius but I'm not sure if that's just because I work for her or maybe she's on to something. Sprout has a list of 28 words that continues to grow daily and he also sported a list of 10 signs that he uses to help express himself. Currently, however, he is mastering his non-verbal communication skills such as rolling on the flor while screaming, holding his breath and turning purple to convey his deep feelings of unhappiness.

I think that's all for now. I still don't have a working digital camera but hope to post pics of his latest photoshoot once they are available!! Thank you all and talk to you soon.

On the UP!!!

Sprout had a good day today. He still slept a ton and ate a little but hey, at least he's eating right? Oh and he also drank pretty well, mostly gatorade. I suppose it's what his body needs. I was going to buy some culturelle considering his bowel problem for the last 4 days but , man, that stuff was $30 for a 14-day supply. I always recommend culturelle to my patients when their child was having problems and now I wonder if they really bought it....Oh well. His issue isn't that bad. Hopefully it will clear up soon and we can get back to potty training.

On that front. Things were going really well and Sprout was potty trained, in my opinion, for almost 2 weeks but I guess his school just isn't equiped to handle someone his age who is pottying. It sucks because I feel like they've forced him back into diapers. I really want to switch his school until he's 2 but just can't find anywhere that compares to the school he's in now. Plus I just can't bring myself to take him away from his friends.

Oh it's getting late. The weekend flew by and I still have laundry to do, dishes to wash and even groceries to put away. I suppose I should get myself off this computer and back to work. Tomorrow starts a brand new work week which could get interresting! Here's hoping! You all have a great week and come back soon to keep up with the Billings'!!!

Lazy Saturday.

Last night was super fun. Both Red and I got a chance to hang out with friends and even Sprout got to hang out with his main BFF Cman! They got together, played trucks, shooting games and had nugget happy meals for dinner! They has a blast and it was a late night for the little guys. Today wasn't as bad as I thought it may have been Sprout went to bed pretty late but Red and I went to bed even later. I just knew that Sprout would wake up at his usual time, around 7. Suprisingly enough I was the early bird and started the morning around 5:30, wooh long day! Sprout didn't bat an eye this morning until almost 9:30.

It was strange. When he got up he asked for candy. Huh?!? Candy? I of course said no and explained that we didn't eat candy for breakfast and he freaked out. I eventually caved and gave him a lollipop. He licked it a couple times, gave it up and asked for some milk. I happily obliged and thought this would be a great start to our family day. Well, once he finished his milk he was really clingy and wanted to rock, not more than 30 minutes later he was out like a light. He slept until about 12:30 played a little, ate some crackers and went back to sleep about 3. He woke up from that nap about 6 and is playing okay. Poor little guy. I hope he's not catching something.

I guess it's not a total loss. Red and I got to spend time together and we both cleaned the house. On the bright side, I don't feel bad about being stuck in the house, the weather was awful today.

***Oh. I spoke with Cman's mom and he's got an upset tummy today. We both agreed that it must have been bad chicken nuggets. :)
