Trying to keep him calm & MaKayla glasses + more

Scott & I have been doing everything in our power to keep Crew from going into the hospital. The Dr's say we are doing a great job, better then most parents. It has been exhausting for me but worth it since we are so far in debt right now with the five mnths Scott was off work and Hospital bills from Crew being born.
In order to ease Crew's woe is me Crying and sounds all day. We tried putting him in his walker and rolling him around. he stopped crying for about Five minutes. That was five minutes of Heaven for me. You can see especially in the last picture how miserable he is.
His breathing seems to be a little better today, cough seems more producticve and fever is gone. Three months for a baby to be sick is a long time.
For those of you wondering, YES!!!! I do clean and sanitize my house daily. I do not know why the sickness has lingered. Other than having three other children in the house.
Our humidifier runs non stop.
On a lighter note, my photography class I teach at my house on Thursday Nights has been a great break for me. Scott keeps the kids upstairs and I get to teach others about photography. I have seen amazing improvement in the class members. They email me pictures and show me improvements. I am glad I was able to make a difference. I might have to do this class again sometime for others. I am looking forword to taking my girls dance group pictures next month and I have a few weddings and senior pictures to do.

The girls enjoyed pushing him around

Though this is not the best picture of her, ( she is very self conscious about her teeth right now. I cannot wait to get money to fix them.) MaKayla now has glasses too. No more using McKenzie's glasses to tell them apart. They really only need to use them to see far away but they wear them all the time.

I really hope Crew gets better soon! How miserable for him to be crying all the time...
And I think her glasses are really cute! We just found out Brynley (who's almost 7) needs glasses too. She is so excited to get them. I'm not sure I am...I can just see them getting lost or stepped on.

I was going to call you today and my day flew by before I had the chance. I can't believe how big he's getting. He's been sick forever, I hope it passes soon. How awful for him and you. By the way, it's a boy.

I am glad he is doing better. When my twins got RSV it was the scariest thing. I hope you don't even have to experience that anymore. I love the girls glasses. I am glad they are different colors so that I can still tell them apart.

I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
