We Are Going To Have Another One!!!

We told Archie that he's going to be a big brother and this is what he did:

Cry like the big baby that he is because he doesn't want to share his Mama and Papa. Just kidding, he actually lifted up my shirt and looked for the baby in my belly, didn't see one and looked at me like I was crazy. I don't know if he really understands what is going to happen.

Here are some family photos that I took when I was 12 weeks pregnant. I am almost 17 weeks now so this post is long over due but Archie has been keeping me busy. Maybe I'll take a picture of my belly soon and write about how this pregnancy has been going.

We let Archie splash in the fountain after we got a few shots. He had a blast.

Archie's Hospital Stay

It's been a while since I've blogged and I've got some big news to share later but first I'll tell about our weekend. Archie caught RSV, had two ear infections, and was teething. None of those things would have been that big of a deal if he hadn't stopped eating and drinking. He stayed in the hospital for two nights and two days. He hated the IV's, 3 am blood tests, and around the clock booger sucking. Almost every time a nurse came in he cried. I hated seeing him him sick and it was so scary that our little piglet didn't eat any dinner 3 nights in a row and hardly drank anything for days.

I took him to the doctor on Wednesday and again Thursday. He lost a pound and a half in just a day and was dehydrated enough that they admitted him Thursday. They initially said it was just going to be over night but he still wasn't drinking enough so we stayed two nights.

These pictures were all taken on our last afternoon there so he was smiling more and feeling a bit better by then.

His crib was like a little cage.

Archie getting some much needed sleep. He slept a lot when he was sick. I kind of miss all of his cuddling but it is so nice to see him running around and happy again!
