Memoral Day Morning, spent in the ER

Aaron, Drake, & I spent part of our morning in the ER

Saturday morning during our yard sale Drake started getting little red bumps all over his legs, I thought it was a heat rash.  As the day went on, they got more red and started spreading throughout his body.  By Sunday his poor little hand looked all splotchy.

This morning when Drake and I got up we played in bed fora little while before we went out to the living room where I finally noticed that his hand went from splotchy to HORRIBLE.  The little dots were all over his poor little body.  So... I got us both dressed real quick and made our way to NWMC.  The ER staff was really quick and got us in, in about 5 minutes.  The male nurse that did vitals was great with Drake.  He didn't cry at all AND he's up to 15 pounds 11 ounces now. 

We were put in room 9 and waited for Aaron to get there (he was working) and for the Dr to come check out tiny baby out.  Drake was in absolutely no distress.  My goofy son was squealing the whole time.  Dr. Akin was the ER doctor and was very nice.  He checked Drake's spots out and then checked his eye and ears.  Everything looked great other than the spots.  He wasn't very worried and said that it looked like a very bad eczema flare up.  We'll follow up with our pediatrician later this week. 

Other than our quick ER trip, our long weekend was great.  I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day!

My 1st Mothers Day

 Sometimes it's still hard to beleive that I have a baby that calls me mommy (well he will one day).  Aaron and Drake started my morning off w/ cards and the most perfect amazingly perfect mothers ring. 
The picture picture was taken at work with my iphone so it definatly does not do it justice but I needed to show it off anyway

David Adams in Fayetteville is wonderful!  And they have the best mothers rings I have ever seen.  They have the child's name hand stamped on the band and they're stackable for when if we have more children.  Aaron and Drake weren't the only ones thinking about me on my 1st mothers day!  Mom and Dad sent me flowers and John and Susan sent me a card!

Other things to catch up on...
**I have misplaced my camera charger and it's killing me!  I haven't been able to take pictures because my camera is DEAD :(.  I threw around the idea of just buying a new camera (mine has a huge crack down the screen anyway) but I LOVE my camera so I opted to just buy a new charger.  And thankfully it will be Wednesday.  I'm sure that I will be in picture overload once the camera is charged.  I've already missed 2 weeks of Drakers that I wont get back. 
**Drake wants to crawl so bad but just cant get up the courage to get on all fours yet.  We worked on it alot yesterday afternoon and I have a feeling we're going to have a mobile baby very soon.    
Here he is trying to get the balloon that came with my flowers
