Eric + Vapor rub =

Pyzam Glitter Text Maker

A few days ago I was doing a little house work when I started smelling something really strong (like vapor rub). So I fallowed the smell up the stairs, down the hall and into the bathroom, where Eric was rubbing baby vapor rub all over his hair! I stood there watching him for a minute before I went off to get the camera... He was literally digging out handfuls of the stuff and rubbing it into his hair, and then going for more. It wasn’t quite so funny when I realized how hard it was to get out. I washed his hair about ten times with his soap, and at least five with real shampoo. Then I drained the tub, wiped out the grease, and washed him with dish soap, then with his soap again. His hair still looked wet when it dried (from all the grease). The next morning after yet another bath he looked a lot better!

Eric's FIRST sWIm

Okay, I guess this post is old news, but I was looking though some picture CD's and I found one that my cousin gave me with some pictures of us swimming. It was the first time we took Eric. It was fun because we went with a bunch of my cousins who have babies Eric's age. They were all so cute!

Because I started a new blog, I thought I'd put a slide show of some of our old pictures rather than back track. They are kind of random but they are some of my favorite. When I look at them I am so amazed at how fast the time has gone.

So Scary

Today we had a big scare at our home. At about 3:30 this afternoon, I was sitting in the living room, feeding the little baby I've been watching a bottle, and waiting for his mom to pick him up. When I heard a knock at the door, figuring it was Paula (the baby's mom) I didn't get up to answer the door because she usually walks in..... She did not walk in, so Tyler went and opened the door. That's when I hear a male voice say, "did someone here call 911"!?! In a panic, I ran to the door to find an ambulance and fire truck parked in my front yard!! After talking to him we realized that there was a miss communication and they were suppose to be at a home just down the road, where a elderly man was waiting for them. (Luckily he ended up being fine, I guess he was suffering from high altitude sickness.) But before we figured the mix up out, Paula drove up and upon seeing the emergency vehicles in my yard started crying, for fear something had happened. I felt bad for the mix up, and glad that nothing major had happened. As many of you know, there has been quite a few tragedies this past year, so this little incident caused a few calls of concern, as people saw the emergency team in our yard. I'm so glad that I could answer the calls with something positive.. My heart aches for those who have experienced the other side of that.
