In between the illnesses...

So, I realised I hadn't posted much this past month. We've been sick (mostly Walt) with 2 double ear infections, a viral infection (Dean), 2 eye infections, and I had a cold. Walt's ears are still infected, even after being on antibiotics for 24 days, so we're going to an ENT (our bishop who did Dean's tongue surgery) on Tuesday to see what structurally might be wrong. Adenoids maybe? Hopefully something "easily" fixable.

We purchased a playset from Costco this month and Matt finished putting it up a week or two ago. We've really loved having a "park" at our house! Dean's gotten really good at swinging in a big kid swing. He LOVES to go high and throw his head back and close his eyes. I try and spot him when he does this, because he is just a beginner, but that boy has always loved big movement and a thrill.

Walter has started climbing. And climbing more than Dean ever did at this age! We might just be in trouble with this one. I think we'll actually have to secure bookcases and dressers to the wall.

We also went to Lake Ray Roberts (a state park) with a huge group of friends last week. Unfortunately I didn't bring my camera so I don't have any pics of that. We had a lot of fun, and I impulsively bought a Texas State Park Pass (non-refundable impulse purchases are not usually my thing, so I don't know why I did it), so hopefully we'll go a lot more this summer and get pics!

How fun! I can't believe Walt is climbing!! Busy boys! I hope Walt's Dr. Appointment goes well and everyone starts feeling better.

Caleb's been climbing too, which is weird for me to watch because at this same age, Garrett was still more than two months away from even attempting to crawl. And here's Caleb climbing all over the place. Dangerous indeed.

The month's been rough at our house, too, with illness and teething and such, but it doesn't sound nearly as miserable as at your house. I hope you guys start feeling better soon.

It seems like Mary is more of a climber than Josh was too. I think it must be a 2nd child thing...they're trying to keep up with the older sibling.

Nice playset...hopefully we'll be getting one of those in the not-too-distant future.
