you may have seen this tunic a couple of times over the years! it's one of my faves and it has officially been deemed...the belly blouse! or tummy tunic, or whatevs :) i realized as i put it on i have worn this thing for all 3 pregnancies. i have found some timeless pieces from Urban Outfitters over this years and this one of them. i was 17 weeks along that day!the day before Dego's birthday, i took both boys to get their physicals and vaccinations outta the way for the summer. this kid. a clinic employee was walking by as we waited to be called and Chiso greeted him with the cheeriest, 'hello!' and a smile. Dego imitates almost everything Chiso does these days and that time was no different. the guy smiled right back and said, "this is what you get when you smile and say hello, boys-- " and he held up his pointer finger and disappeared into a into a nearby room. he came back out and gave them both sun shades and frisbees. how thoughtful!"waiting" for their pediatrician.yeah, he had the right idea...cause this was next. i know moms feel me when i say this NEVER gets any easier, sheesh. i made sure to let the nurse helping me hold Dego down that he was craaaazy strong; she held his legs while i held his little balled up fists. we got through it again.... but ugh.
breathing treatment for the big boy! he has been dealing with a 'wet' cough as of late, and the treatment definitely helped lessen it's intensity after just 5 minutes. we will keep the treatments going at home until this thing is completely gone. prayers please!the next day was Dego's birthday!!!! :( why the sad face? friends, i made a HUGE rookie mom move, even though i'm 2.5 kids into this motherhood game. i totally should have waited til' the day after Dego's birthday to have his shots done. his pedi warned that fever and soreness might strike, but i figured after a nap, a dose or two of pain meds, and a good nights sleep he would be back to normal by the next morning. my little Dego was so not himself from the moment he woke up. i felt teeeeeerrible and wondered how i could have been so dumb! he wanted to be carried everywhere (in the house) and again he was not his normal, smiling, silly, playful, talkative self. moms, no vaccinations before any major events or holidays if you can help it. you just never know how they will react, so don't risk it. we planned on celebrating and enjoying his birthday at a new waterpark that opened up on the west side of town, Typhoon Texas! but those plans were crapped and postponed immediately. after a few naps and a few more rounds of pain meds, he was in a better mood by that evening, yay! so, i whipped out his Whole Foods mini berry chantilly cake,(thanks for the card, Grannie & Grampa),and we sang to him as he smiled!he smiled. seeing him smile again made my heart fill with complete joy. it was the highlight of my day. papa's turn! then we got dressed and went to find Dory in 3D.i need a root canal but i HAD to try some, lol! happy 2nd birthday to our Dego....we love you! Typhoon Texas, we're still comin' for ya.
