We loved our big birthday weekend. We got to see a lot of friends and family and just enjoy time hanging out with people we love. Celebrating one year of our little man was pretty cool too. However, after all the excitement of the weekend, Owen came down with a tummy bug and has spent the last week making gross, disgusting diapers. The contents of these diapers can’t stay in the diaper, so there have been lots of loads of laundry and many times I’ve changed the sheets in Owen’s crib. In fact, the washing machine contains such a load as I type. I’m not a fan of these bugs because the changing of everything so constantly gets a bit draining. Towards the end of last week, the germs finally caught up with me and I went down with a bit of the flu bug myself. Despite our germs, Sunday was one of the few days that we could make it to the local cider mill as a family. Owen and I went and now that I reflect, we maybe shouldn’t have gone… I’m fairly certain we weren’t over our bugs. I think I might have given my sister some of the cruddy bugs as well. We are a family that likes to share! Oh well. Even today, I took Owen into town for a MOPS meeting and a staff appreciation lunch and then we got home and …. another blowout diaper. Maybe we’re not all better yet? I don’t know!!! So the last week has been a quiet one thanks to germs keeping us a bit grounded. The next few days are kind of full, so we’ll see how that all pans out. I wonder if the Scotts will win or if the bugs will us at bay a little while longer. Since I don’t have anything more news worthy to share, I will leave you with a few photos of our brief outings! Hopefully in my next post, I’ll have good health to report!
PS – On a random note, Owen has added “Uh-oh” to his vocabulary. He learned that one from his father! Also, he is really enjoying playing with shapes recently. We have a couple of shape toys and he celebrates when he gets the right shape into its spot. It’s pretty cute to watch him get excited!
