Flat Lincoln

My Sick Baby
A little small for it

So these last few weeks have been a little difficult. I guess it didn't really dawn on me until now that the more children you have, the more trips to the doctor you'll make. So...that's where I've been for last 3 weeks!
First, Hudson had Strep Throat. Then, Lincoln had 1 ear infection. Then Drew got Strep Throat. Then, I realized that Lincoln was not better, went back to Dr and now he has 2 ear infections. Over a week later, Lincoln still has horrible congestion and has developed a terrible cough. So...we went back to Dr today and he has upper respiratory infection. Poor thing had to get bloodwork done and an Xray. If your little one has never had an Xray, consider yourself lucky. It's awful to watch. They put him on this stool, raise his hands in the air and lock him in this clear plastic cylinder. Oh and they are naked too. They are so uncomfortable and scared. I cry every time. Luckily, he didn't have RSV.
So, here is where the "Flat Lincoln" title comes in...When Lincoln went to the Dr the first time, the Dr asked if I put Lincoln on his belly any and I said "no, not yet." He informed me that Lincoln's head is looking too flat on the backside and that if it's not better in a month, he'll put a HELMET on him! Do what???? My stomach dropped! So, needless to say...Mr. Lincoln has not been spending much time on his back!! The reason I said "Flat Lincoln" is b/c one of my friends said we should call him that just like "Flat Stanley!"

Up in the playground


Hanging at Sunny's house

Big eyes

The boys have been going crazy being cooped up in the house so we had a little outing last weekend to Longview. We found this indoor playground and arcade that is operated by a local church. Crazy, huh? It was super cheap and the boys had a blast. Linc took a nap and then watched the boys play. He is a wonderful traveler. Of course we had to do something for the grown-ups too so we went to Jason's Deli!! hopfully, it will warmup soon!
