from those whose walk is blameless."

Bad Ears, Raw Bootie, and More Teeth!!



I'm sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I spent the second week of February in Kentucky with my family and then last week Craig's mom came to visit! It's been so NICE to be around family the last few weeks. I want Hutton to have as much time as possible with them and I'm thankful for the times we've shared the last few weeks!

Hutton is on ear infection #4!! He had two within 2 weeks!! Our pediatrician says that we are doing everything right that we can to prevent them, but for some babies there's just nothing you can do. They can be genetic and since Craig and I had terrible ears we are assuming that's the case with Hutton. We are going to give it through March and then possibly consider tubes. This time around they put Hutton on Augmentin which has caused the WORST diaper rash I've ever seen. His bottom is so RAW that he cries just to have a diaper change. It's sooo bad. I called the pediatrician yesterday and they told me to whip up my own concoction of things for a cream. It's kind of working but not completely. So if you ever have this happen with your baby, give it a try. It's definitely decreased the inflammation. Combine equal amounts of the following: A&D ointment OR Desitin + Lotrimin + Hydrocortisone.

On top of that, we believe he is cutting his two upper front teeth. That led to a sleepless week last week!! However, Grandma came to the rescue! Craig and I had the treat of getting a hotel room Friday night, kind of a late Valentine's celebration, while Grandma babysat! We had dinner and slept from 10pm to 10am!! It was AMAZING!! Thanks Grandma!! You were so helpful and we cannot thank you enough for all that you did to help us last week! We love you soooo much!!

So needless to say it's been an interesting month! We are heading to Nashville to spend the weekend with Aunt B this weekend while she's in town for a wedding! Can't wait for that! Here are some of my new favorite pics! Enjoy!

Nana Time!!

It is incredible to me what a different baby Hutton is around his Nana!! He laughs SO hard around her. All she has to do is look at him and smile and he giggles!! Craig and I have tried everything from funny faces to peek a boo and beyond but he will NOT laugh at us the way he laughs at Nana!! It's mind boggling!! There is nothing sweeter than to see a little boy with his grandma! Enjoy these videos!

Arranged marriages a good idea?



After spending the weekend with Brett, Jodi, and baby Micah Unger, we determined that maybe arranged marriages could have their advantages!! From what it seemed like to us, Hutton and Micah really hit it off during their initial meeting and we see great potential for a future! Considering Brett was a college football player and Jodi tried out for the Olympics in Pole Vaulting, Micah is bound to be an athlete! So, we think it's a match made in heaven!! Haha!

Hutton and I are Kentucky bound this weekend for some time with Nana and Pops. Kind of a last minute trip but when looking at the calendar, it was going to be awhile for my next trip so we decided to schedule it in now! I don't know who is more excited, Hutton or Nana?
