Our 4-Day Weekend

Monday, January 20, 2014

We had a fabulous, illness-free, weekend...finally! I'll do a little re-cap for those of you who don't know.  The Dorey Plague 2014 hit me first and I was down with a stomach virus two weeks ago.  The next morning Wyatt woke up with pink eye in one eye and by Wednesday it was in both eye.  He continued to be extremely fussy, especially at night.  He was coughing a lot but it also seemed like he was possibly having some kind of tummy trouble.  Friday I took him into the doctor and he fussed/cried the entire time we were there.  Dr. G. diagnosed him with a URI but also knew something else wasn't right.  So, they put a "bag" around his penis so they could do a urinalysis and urine culture.  We got the results back on the urinalysis almost immediately and they were negative.  Meanwhile, the coughing continued so by Monday we were starting an antibiotic.  Monday night I got word on the urine culture....it was positive.  Finally, we had found an answer to the problems we'd been having.  So, Tuesday morning we finally started antibiotics for the UTI.  I was so happy to be able to give my baby boy some relief! Needless to say, we spent last week resting and recuperating.  
 It was a really great relaxing weekend, and the best part?? My mama was here!! I love when she comes to visit.  She needed Wyatt time and I needed a little rest....win, win!  The weather was beautiful so we had some good quality time outside, riding in the wagon, swinging, and going for a walk.  I was so excited for mom to see Wyatt crawling around (yes, he's mobile!!).  Sean and I were also able to go out to eat, I love our date nights.
Like I said, Wyatt is mobile and into everything! He started really crawling last weekend but has really taken off this week.  He's also trying to pull up on everything, so far he's just made it to his knees.  A mobile baby means baby-proofing.  Sunday morning Sean installed some LOCKS on our cabinets...now, if I could just remember they're locked. Anyways, it was nice having mom here to help wrangle him a little. 
Sunday evening we went over to our friend's house to eat pizza and watch the 49ers and the Seahawks play. I honestly couldn't tell you who was playing in the game until we got there....shows how much I pay attention.  I spent a majority of the time watching and playing with Wyatt.  But it was nice to get out of the house and socialize, ha!
It's a long weekend for Sean so today we've been spending a lot of time outside.  It's so nice today, 70 degrees.  Enjoying the last warm day for a while.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend, and hopefully it's a 4-day weekend for you!
