Boy, how weekends away have changed! We spent this past weekend with some friends at Deep Creek MD. We didn’t do much exploring around Deep Creek because the weather was was kind of crappy and we had 5 kids between all of the couples, but we did take a short family walk. Even though it was crazy with all of the kids crawling, waddling, and running around it was nice to catch up with friends and get away from the day to day back home. Tony even enjoyed the hot tub while I was able to take a relaxing bath. We all hope to meet again in the spring.
Being sick is the pits especially when you’re taking care of a sick kid. Owen was back at the doctors this week because he was running a fever and has had a bad cough. The doctor said she saw some liquid still in his ear so she gave him some medicine to take for the next 10 days. I have definitely been blaming myself for Owen being sick – thinking if I would be home more and not send him to daycare then he wouldn’t get sick as much. I just need to get over it and realize that he is going to get sick. Tony has been fantastic and stayed home from work on Monday and Tuesday with him. He seems to be getting better slowly. I am hoping by this weekend he will feel like himself again and we can venture out and enjoy the fall weather.
We haven’t tried many foods this week with Owen not feeling well. So far we’ve given him peas, green beans, carrots, pears, and sweet potatoes. He really enjoys the carrots. I hope to try out some squash and other fruits this weekend.
