We took Clayton for his six month appointment on Friday, and because Bentley didn't want to feel left out, he got sick. He has been running a fever since Wednesday. Today is Sunday. Not only does he have a fever, he has a runny and bloody nose, and coughing. Sounds pleasant right? The good news is he doesn't have strep and they don't think it is the flu either.

Back to Clayton, our big boy. He is 20 pounds 10 oz. ( Ben is only 24lbs) and is 29 inches long. He is barley fitting in 12 month clothes. The doctor said he looked great and could start table food and juice. He does have an ear infection still, he has had it since before Christmas. They put him on his 3rd round of antibiotics and will re-check his ears in 2 weeks. He also got 4 shots. He has been very grumpy!

This weekend has been spent inside and relaxing. Here is to hoping we get better soon!

Random Thoughts

I am not going to make a New Years Resolution list this year. I feel like in general there is always something I need to work on to be a better person/wife/mommy. Here are some random thoughts I am thinking today:

1. I need to write on my blog more often.
2. I never want to forget when Ben is hungry he says "I eat, I eat".
3. I think we should start a family tradition the first Friday of ever month we should do a movie night. (I haven't ran this by Jeremy). I also understand my children will not sit thought a movie, but even if they only make it 5 mins. I think it would be a nice tradition.
4. There are a lot of things I need to get done around the house but never have time to do them. This must change.
5. Jeremy says we are going to work on sleep training Clayton tonight. We have said this for a long time. We will see if it actually happens.

I am so excited for the amazing year that lies ahead! I can't help but feel blessed. Time to go cuddle up with my boys!
