Gavin's eye infection

I haven't posted in a while. I apologize for that. I haven't really taken any pictures either. I did get one of Gavin right after he woke up the other morning. He has Pink Eye pretty bad. One of his eyes was actually glued shut that morning and the other one wasn't far behind. He just oozes yellow puss from his eyes. Poor guy.He's slowly recovering. We've all been sick the past two weeks - fevers and sinus infections. Savannah actually has ear infections and is on antibiotics for another 5 days. It's been really fun around here, let me tell you! The hardest part now is holding Gavin down to put eye drops in his poor little eyes every three hours. The joys of motherhood...

Can you tell the sex? UPDATED

I apologize - for those of you who don't regularly look at ultrasounds or who weren't sitting in the room with me to see what I saw, it would be pretty hard to know what exactly I'm looking for! In the middle of the photo are two little blobs and his little privette part is in the middle of them - sticking straight out and pointing to the right. See it yet? Well, even if you don't, that's ok cause IT'S A BOY! Yeah!!!

(If you can't quite see it, tilt your head to the right.)

Just for fun, here's another shot of the baby lying sprawled out over my placenta.

Only 23 more weeks to go!

Thank Goodness For Super Glue!

My children have a habit of playing in the big laundry basket. I'm not too fond of it. They always climb in and tip themselves over - usually resulting in someone crying. This only happens on laundry day. Maybe I should just quit doing laundry......well today, Gavin and Izzy were both climbing in it and of course fighting at the same time. The laundry basket tipped over and Gavin hit his head on the coffee table. Savannah, being the good little nurse that she is, grabbed a wet washcloth and brought him down to me. I called Jennifer over to come look at his cut. I was pretty sure it needed a stitch or two, but wanted a second opinion. His hair is hiding some of it in the picture. It gaped and I could squeeze it back together.
She agreed, so I loaded the kids up, dropped the girls off at my mom's (LOVE YOU MOM!) and took Gavin in. He didn't get any stitches though. They just glued his head back together. Thank goodness for super glue. In five days, he'll be good as new.
