An afternoon at the apple orchard

It was a nice afternoon, and we were tired of being cooped up from the rain we had been having all week. We went to Stuckey Farm ...and what a nice time we had! It was our first time picking apples at the apple orchard and didn't know what to expect. We picked a bunch of Gala apples...and also bought apple cider, peach/apricot jam, and honey from their store. Those apples are so yummy and so crisp!

Happy 11 Months, Evan!

Hard to believe Nate and I met our son for the first time eleven months ago! Really, where does this time go? He is in constant motion, whether it's cruising our furniture, crawling around the house, or chasing our dogs' tails. We certainly get a work-out keeping up with him! He's learned to wave in the past cute! He has two new teeth on top (a total of four now), with two more about to cut through on the top.

Poor little E is sick...

...with an ear infection :( His sleep schedule has been messed up big time this past week or two...boycotting naps, frequent wakings during the night, difficulty getting him back to sleep, etc. I was blaming it all on teething until a day or two one never knows since the symptoms are so similar.

Yesterday, I started to suspect a possible ear infection. Evan was just not himself...and it seemed to be more than teething. Teething sucks, but it has never lasted this long.

Then today, he felt warm to me, and his rectal temp read 100F. Not a high temp, but high enough for me to be convinced he really did have an ear infection. Luckily, his pediatrician's office has sick hours during the weekend, so we were able to go in for an appointment this morning.

Sure enough, little E has an ear infection. Hopefully, his antibiotics start to kick in soon so he is feeling better. I hate to seem him in pain and so miserable.
