Poor guy

It's been awhile and I am just exhausted so here's everything in a nutshell.

School has started and the boys are going to a daycare. I still have tons of mixed feelings about the whole thing. They promised us it would be a small class. There are now ten little ones, two teachers and lots of runny noses. Luke has a chronic cough which has been around for three full weeks now. Poor guy! We took him in to the doctor and she put him on some liquid steroids. These haven't seemed to help so we saw a Pulmonary Specialist and he put Luke on some other meds with the combination of more frequent breathing treatments. His cough could be related to three things: a significant amount of respiratory congestion, reflux or asthma. Breathing treatments four times a day now. I hope they start helping. They also want a chest x-ray and a GI tract swallow study to take place so those are planned for next week. (We did a trial run at the daycare three weeks ago so you can guess where this all started.)  Carter is beginning to cough now, go figure.

Teaching and being a new Mommy is the most challenging thing I have ever done. Wow!

9 months and so much fun!!


It's been awhile. Sean and I are getting back into the swing of things with school starting soon so we have been really busy. Sean is now working in Little Elm at a Middle School as a Coach and 8th Grade History Teacher. This is a huge blessing for us because his school is just 5 minutes up the road and he will no longer have to travel an hour. He gets to do what he loves and be close to home. I'm all smiles for that!

The boys....
They are doing so great! They are now 9 months old. They are full of smiles and giggles and we cannot believe how fast they are growing and learning new things. After a ton of contemplating and procrastinating the boys are now registered at a daycare in the area. We had our first trial run yesterday. I thought I would completely lose it walking out the door to leave them but I was very pleased with their teachers so I felt okay. It wasn't until my drive back to get them, my heart was racing as I hit every red light. I felt a million emotions about the whole "daycare" thing and I thought about every What-If in the book. If I would have just stopped and told myself {we have really good babies, and they're probably fine} then I might have relaxed a little.         Overall, they did good. Carter did not like when other babies cried; it would make him upset and Luke had some trouble napping which I think we can agree that is perfectly normal for a new place with lots of new sounds. Other than that, they played and ate really well.
