Five on Friday time again!!! Linking up with Darci at The Good Life Blog and sharing a few things from this week. Not gonna lie... I had big plans for this to be "Valentines themed" and I was going to share 5 printable Valentines. Then Luke got sick and my whole week turned into rubbing his back, making him drink Gatorade and feeding him dry Cheerios. So rather than a cutesy, themed post today will be brought to you by the letter "random" :)
On Monday night we went to dinner with Dave's parents, brother and Grandmas. I posted this pic on Instagram of Griffin with Dave's Grandma Minnie Fae Griffin...
... and several people commented asking if that's where we got Griffin's name. I'm not sure if I've shared this before, but Luke's middle name is Luke Buchanan (my maiden name), Mason is Mason West (a shortened version of my Mom's maiden name, Westervelt) and so when we found out about Miss G we knew we wanted her to have a family name as well. Griffin is Dave's mom's maiden name and so that's where we got her name!
Since I'm talking about dinner on Monday night, of course I have to show you what Griffin wore :)
This was the night that Luke got sick so I ended up leaving dinner and taking him to my mom's house - which left Mason with that much more of everyone's attention.
2) THE STREP
After we picked Luke up from my parents house on Monday night he took a turn for the worse. He threw up red popsicle ALL OVER our bedroom and then ended up spending the night on a palette on the floor next to our bed.
After being up ALL night throwing up (seriously - like 9 times!) here he is in the morning sporting an old t-shirt and trying to keep ice chips down...
After a trip to the pediatrician, a diagnosis of strep throat and a dose of Zofran followed by antibiotics it was couch time for the little man. I sat here with him pretty much all day.
Wednesday morning he still wasn't 100%, so we stayed home again, but by the afternoon he was feeling better and so we did some errands including a trip to Target (which is never complete without a trip down the Lego aisle!)
Thursday Luke went back to school, but by 11:45 he was feeling icky so he came and laid on the couch in my classroom. He was out in about 5 minutes, and he slept through an entire Math 7 class and then an hour after that.
After Target on Wednesday we stopped and had a piece of pie at Emporium pies on the square in downtown McKinney. If you're local you HAVE to stop in ASAP and have some. It's AMAZING!!!
THREE - Out to eat
We went out to eat last week (just the 5 of us) and Dave and I were commenting on how much EASIER it has gotten in the last couple of months! No baby food, no nursing covers and bottles, and relatively well-behaved kiddos :) Hallelujah!
FOUR - Cutest hiney ever
FIVE - This kid.
Wearing a blardigan...
... and blow drying his hair with a drill.
Also.... don't forget to enter my Jameson Monroe Giveaway
And last week I posted a soup recipe that has gotten some great reviews from some of my peeps on Instagram. You should totally try it out this weekend!
I'm hoping that this weekend will include LOTS of snuggle time at home, lots of time resting and no throw up :)
