Keegan is THREE!!!

My baby boy turned three on July 6th. You never think that you are going to get there, but we have arrived. Not that I did not love every other stage, but this one has to be my favorite thus far. When you can have conversations with your child, there is never a dull moment. He has really come out of his daddy only mode and has really loved hanging out with me lately. I hope I can remember all the things I love about him, but here is a good shot...
*wakes up at 6am every morning. Not that I love that, but he wakes up with a smile on his face.
*doesn't like breakfast unless it involves a chocolate cot-tart. (pop-tart)
*loves letters. He will find letters all sorts of objects like buildings, trees, food or clouds. He has been sounding out words lately and it has been exciting to see his mind expand.
*loves to sing. Lately he ends songs with the word "baseggiti" a.k.a spaghetti. "Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, life is but a Basegetti. He thinks he is hi-larious!
*now enjoys going to the doctor's office to see Dr. Worrell. I guess that will all come crashing down at his 4 year appointment. Thanks to all of Jack's appointments, Keegan has adjusted to the place.
*enjoys any farting noise....thanks to the Jones family for the whoopie cushion.
*loves to become Super Keegan with his blue blanket tied around his neck.
*asks all the time "What's the big idea?"
*loves to snuggle on the couch and have his feet rubbed.
*sticks out his tongue when he does not know an answer.
*enjoys cooking eggs and making sandwiches.
*is in the 95 percentile for height and 75 percentile for weight. Two words...Tall and Skinny.
*loves to wrestle with daddy and play chase.
*is potty trained and makes it until morning dry. I really love this!
*loves to tell me to slow down when I am driving so I don't get into an "ac-dent".
*begs to go ride the train by Granny J's house often.
*watches monster truck shows with G-Bob in the morning with milk and coffee. His favorite one is the Batman monster truck and sings the theme music really fast. I think a monster truck show is a must.
*loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Special Agent Oso, Handy Mandy, Sesame Street, and Word World.
*is sweet natured, mild, loving, hilarious, energetic, and so very handsome.
Love you Keegs!

Tubes Here We Come

I realize that it has been a month. The relationship with this blog has been strained in the past few months. Not sure why, but maybe one day I will become more faithful.

Part of the reason in the past month why the blog has not been getting any love is that we have been so sleep deprived. I feel as if we were back to the the first week when we brought home our babies. Jack literally was up 4-5 times a night screaming. He has also been so unhappy during the day that I thought I was going to lose my mind. I thought at first it was his molars coming in and that he was 18 months so I let him scream it out at night and never took him to the doctor. He had just finished antibiotics and the doctor cleared him. Evidently, the meds can mask it and it comes right back.

After almost 2 weeks of it, I decided to take him to the doctor after a conversation with my friend Shawna that sent a light bulb off that it was not his age but his ears! Poor Baby! So the doctor finally said, "It is time for tubes". I wanted to hug the him right then and there. Finally we can ease his pain. So, we have a an appointment for him in the morning to go to the ENT and I am beyond thrilled. Most importantly, we found a medicine that is helping for right now.

So I have so many things to blog about....but the most important is that Keegan turned THREE this past Monday. Can not wait to blog about that!
