Its been too long I know!

I haven't posted in so long ... yikes, time gets away from us so quickly these days, especially now that summer is here. Seems like we've been extra busy lately and each time i've thought of posting, it just hasn't happened. Soon, the kid will be ONE year old - yes, thats the big 1. we can't believe it. i'm sad! i mean, happy that he's growing and healthy and happy but - sad too. his birthday hits on a thursday, so we will do cake that night but an official celebration will be on saturday with a trip to the zoo.

Meanwhile, whats been going on lately? welll -- heres some recent photos to update you all!

abram has recently become obsessed with this ball... when he first received it a couple months ago, he liked it well enough but - wow, in the past 3 weeks or so, he wants to roll this ball around constantly. and has learned the command "go get your ball" and does it... its the first toy he usually grabs and he will play ball for hours it seems!

He's had more trips to Healthy Steps - for the same reason as usual. His right ear is continually battling an ear infection. It improves then declines again. The doctor still seems to think we should wait on tubes and continue treatment with antibiotics. We have tried some natural remedies, as well as the antibiotic treatment. We will continue to just follow his advice. With the arrival of summer, we're hoping he can beat this thing for good! This is him, giving his doctor the eye, like, Uh Oh. what are you going to do to ME this time?!

Well, i wouldn't exactly say we are 'sleep deprived no more' like the photo haha, but its improved. some nights he sleeps thru, and other nights he gets up. but we are feeling more rested for sure. i think the biggest help has been the arrival of SIX teeth! he isn't showing nearly as many teething symptoms as he was, so i think he's just more comfortable. When the ear is troublesome though, its obvious he just doesn't sleep as well. Here he was zonked in the west chester book store. husband thought this was quite an ironic photo... agreed:)

School Picture Day at LaPetite Academy... we didn't know they would do 'school pictures' at his daycare... because when he hit nine months and his life was flashing before our very eyes, we dashed out to sears in a panic, feeling as if we didn't have enough photos already! (like thats even possible). But when he hit ten months, these were taken.

He clearly wasn't Mr. Joyful or Mr. Excited this morning... more like Mr. Sad !

Downright pitiful! but of course, we still bought some of the pictures ha...

And the kid with his whole class:) He's the one on the far left if you can't see the pic that well. i think if you click on the picture, it makes the pictures larger. The two boys on the far right are his buddies. One is three weeks younger, the other a month younger. They're always playing together when we pick him up. and when husband drops him off, abram goes right over to them and plays.

He totally looks like he is thinking about crying in one of the photos. I guess the strange camera person was freaking him out. But I think those kind of photos are just as good as the ones where they smile and are all happy.

SIX teeth?! Wow!!! I guess he has got to be feeling better, then, bless his heart. That ear just might clear up now, too. If not, tubes are not a big deal and offers them instant relief, just so you don't worry about it. Those pics are adorable! And the daycare ones have the cutest background w/the crayons!!! Glad to see a recent post and photos. I can't believe he's 1 today!
