Last May was the beginning of the end for us. At 9 months, Logan got his first ear infection. Since last May, we have had one month, November, ear infection free. He has had 2 rounds of Amoxicillin, 2 doses of Omnicef before a head to toe rash quickly told us he was allergic, and 7 rounds of Augmentin. Honestly, Logan lived in his swing for months because the poor guy couldn't lay down! At his 18 month appointment, we finally asked his doctor for an ENT refferal. She, of course, thought it was a good idea and sent them an email right there. Logan went to the ENT office that week and with one look in each ear, the doctor suggested ear tubes (which we kind of figured he would). We set up an appointed to have them inserted 2 weeks from the appointment, Logan failed both hearing tests, received some financial information (or course), and we left.
By 8:20, Logan's anesthesiologist and doctor came into our little curtained room, answered our last minute questions, and took him away. The "who are these guys and where are they taking me" look was heartbreaking! Brian and I then went back out to the waiting room and by 8:35 a nurse came out and called us back to a conference room. Logan's doctor came in a few minutes later, chatted with us about the procedure, and handed us some ear drops. Brian and I had to wait just a few more minutes and then another nurse came and took us to Logan's recovery room. Oh boy, oh boy...... What a nightmare! I hope to never see my child like that again! He was NOT HAPPY! Oh boy, oh boy.....
We have high hopes for these ear tubes! It may be a coincidence, but since Wednesday, Logan has gone from saying "na-na" to "na-na-na" (banana). I don't know, but I am guessing it is because he can actually hear the first syllable!! I can't wait to see how the rest of his speech develops after this!

After I rolled out the dinner roll, I put 2-3 T. of the meat and cabbage mixture in the dough. My friend added a little Velveeta to each bierock and it tasted delicious so I did the same. (Can you really go wrong with Velveeta?) Then, I pulled each edge to the middle and placed it on a greased cookie sheet.
Here is a quick video of Logan making his elephant sound. You have to listen closely or you might miss it! He doesn't "perform" very often so I am glad I caught it!

All right, all right.... I know, I know....
There are mornings where Katy is the first one out the bedroom door to get Logan out of bed. There are other mornings when Logan
attacks wakes up Katy. Sometimes he will try and play peek-a-boo with her and gently lift up her blanket and other times he will just plop right on top of her. Sometimes Katy will leave her bed for a minute and Logan will lay down in her spot. Logan will just lay there and wait for her to return knowing she will want it back. Logan thinks he is pretty funny! Katy is actually pretty tolerant of Logan in the mornings and will play along. It is funny to watch their interactions in the morning. Here are a few pictures where Logan is waking up Katy.......
