These last 2 months have gone by in one huge blur!
The weather has been insane and it has made us sickly at our house. Since my last update Cade has had a virus, the croup, and 2 more ear infections. This makes 7 ear infections since September, so we saw an ENT Vanderbilt today and tubes are just around the corner. On top of all of that, teeth 14-16 are on their way in...

In spite of the sickness getting Cade and myself (because Cody always seems to escape it) we have done our best to enjoy the pretty spring days that are creeping in. Cade loves being outside so we've made several park trips and spent warm afternoons out in our yard. He likes throwing gravel, blowing bubbles, and riding around in the wagon. When it gets warmer I plan on getting a small pool to set up and maybe a water table.
Cade is really into everything now, since he's walking and running everywhere. He loves chasing Chloe around the house. I keep music playing a lot during the day when we're home, and he loves to dance! Because of all the sick days, we still haven't totally gotten rid of the paci, but the bottle is officially gone now.
I really could make a huge list of household items like cordless phones, refrigerator doors, microwaves, alarm keypads, etc... Because those seem to be his favorites!
Tommee Tippee Sippy Cups: These are the best we've found so far. They really don't leak (except there is a small vent on top that occasionally drips if upside down long). There is also a smaller version for younger babes that has handles on each side.
Boon Snack Caterpillar: We love our "Snackapillar" as we call it. It has been a lifesaver in these all-too-frequent doctor visits lately. It's got 3 different compartments so you can throw in a variety without mixing them up. He just thinks it's funny to slide open and close the little doors.
Crane Humidifier: I've probably mentioned this before, but we use it so much it deserves an encore. This is a lifesaver! I like how quiet it is, the pointed spout on top that you can aim anywhere, and it puts out a great mist on high. It also has a light inside that is nice for nighttime.
B. Splish and Fish Boat: Cade loves bath time and this toy definitely makes it more fun! It has lots of little fish and pieces that store inside, including funtional items that look like toys, like a brush, comb, and stacking cups that pour water like a shower head. Cody is normally in charge of baths, so he and Cade spend lots of time catching fish!
Little Tikes Activity Garden: This was a birthday gift and he plays in it every day. His current obsession is seeing if he can climb over the walls instead of around or through. You can close the walls to make it a house or open them up for a big play area.
Stacking Cups: These were a gift from our nursery at church and Cade loves them! I'm so glad he will play with simple toys as well as electronic (obnoxious) ones. He likes me to stack them so he can take them all out, and then we start all over again!
We've got so much coming up, including Easter, birthdays, throwing a baby shower, and Mother's and Father's Days. Pray for my sanity and no more sick days!
