I love reading blogs. And I get annoyed when people don't update I guess I am annoyed at myself! I try to do every week, but that is rarely the case!
I was going to write a lot about where all we have been - like celebrating my Mom's birthday last week. In short, we went to Leonardo's, where we were serenaded by the accordion man. Turner liked it - from a distance! Also notice Grandad's face. He kills me!

Or our recent trip to Andalusia. We went here:

to see Heath's dad at work. He had a little helper! And then we played with MeMe - and played and played and played. Aren't grandparents wonderful? They step in and enjoy Turner so much - sometimes he is cute to them when he is not quite as cute to me. :)

"Dawh, Dawh" - Cater the "dawh"
Walking/running through the house!

Then I thought I would write a Valentine's post. Look what Heath gave me! Jackpot!!

An Edible Arrangement!!

Side story - he doesn't eat any of this except grapes. Really. More for me. Anyway, we had been dating about 8 months. We were in my parents' kitchen and I was cutting strawberries. I set some aside for Heath, and he told me that he didn't eat strawberries. I literally glared at him and said "If I had known that 8 months ago, things might be different!" I was serious. I know - it is crazy, but I love fruit that much. And my husband does not! Needless to say, we have worked through it. Praise the Lord for my loving and very patient valentine.
However, our Valentine's Day was very downplayed this year. Rewind to Friday morning. We were all waiting on the snow forecast. I got up to get ready to go to Mother's Day Out. When I went to wake Turner up, his face was bright red and he was burning up. He had 101 fever. I thought for a second about giving him Motrin and going on to school. But then I took his temp again because he wouldn't do anything but cry in my arms. It was then 102.5. Too high! Ugh! I wasn't feeling too hot either. I have been fighting a sinus infection - and you can't do much about those pregnant. Have I mentioned I am (to quote Evan) "snow over" the weather. Bring on the SPRING!!
So Turner and I don't have cute pictures from playing in the beautiful snow this weekend. However, Heath took some great pictures. It was really amazing!

Turner and I ran to Publix in our pajamas to get some milk (listen - Turner can't live without it), and some ingredients for an apple pie for a dinner party we ended up not being able to go to! We were looking mighty fine! I saw a friend, Ashley, and she knew right away we were sick! Awesome.
Saturday we were feeling better, and I went to a couple of baby showers. When I got home, Turner didn't have a fever, but would not eat anything. He was grunting every time he breathed, and this continued for about 30 minutes. I called Lindsey and Brandon, and we decided to take him to Children's South to get looked at.
They were wonderful! I was very impressed! An ADPi from Auburn ended up being his nurse (she was after my time, but recognized us) and they took him right away. If you mention infant and labored breathing they take you pretty quickly! He had a chest x-ray (that I had to miss out on, thank God Heath was there). They ruled out pneumonia (Random fact - that word has all the vowels in it, you are welcome). Praise the Lord for no pneumonia! But his oxygen was low and kept dipping lower. He was not a fan of having to put the monitor on his toe.
Then we gave him a breathing treatment for 10 minutes. Turner is crazy strong. It took both of us fully restraining him and smothering him with the mask with Albuterol to make it through! But, luckily his oxygen went up and we were able to go home - one nurse had said we might have to admit him. Thank God we didn't!

This is how Turner walked up to me Sunday morning. You know your child is sick when he grabs the Motrin, walks it to you, then turns and grabs the syringe and places them both in front of you. Seriously!

This weasel has been taking breathing treatments and some antibiotics, but his doctor called first thing this morning and gave him the all clear! He is so much better! He is still not loving the breathing treatments, but he is getting better. I even did it by myself yesterday while Heath was gone, and we lived through it.
So, that was our romantic weekend! We didn't mind, as long as this monkey is feeling better. And we were lucky to go to our friends' house to eat a homecooked meal (I brought a Publix pie!) Happy Valentine's Day! Coming soon, a post about Uncle D getting married! I just feel bad writing it without him seeing it or being in town to approve it!


  1. Poor Turner!! I guess if one gets sick in that room at school they ALL get sick! Hope he is all better by now! Hayes was pitiful when I went down to get her Friday morning from school-burning up and crying. I took her straight to the dr and she has bronchitis. Sounds just like you described Turner. She got an antibiotic and is back to normal finally. and don't worry we didn't get to take any cute snow pics either! my little valentine was napping in her bed all afternoon. Hope you're getting over your sinus infection too and I hope we see you both tomorrow!!

  2. There are people that don't like strawberries?

    Seriously, I like that your Grandad isn't rocked by someone playing accordion behind him. I think he should be the new judge next year on idol.
