Ear infections and big girl accidents

Well, I thought I might update my fellow readers about what is going on. Callan got rid of her ear infection (I guess) but about a week after she finished the medicine, Will and I noticed that she wasn't acting like herself. She was acting just like she was when the doctor said she had an ear infection. So knowing we were going to be out of town and out of pocket for a few days, we decided to take her to the doctor on Friday to see if she had another one (which is what we had suspected). Dr. Crenshaw checked both of her ears and sure enough she had a double ear infection this time! So since she had 2 in 1 month, she gave her a stronger medicine this time. She is so sad but sweet when she is hurting. She is very cuddly and wants to be held which is great but it is so sad because I know it is bothering her. She is still one of the best, least whiny babies I've ever seen to be hurting. Hopefully this medicine will knock it out. She is definitely taking after her daddy with her ear troubles!

Will had to go to Chicago at the beginning of this week so me and C decided to stay with my parents for a couple of nights and then go back and get him at the airport. Sunday was my daddy (Granman's) 60th birthday so after church we drove straight to Huntsville and celebrated with him, Elaine, Shannon, Shannon, Alexis, Faith and my Uncle Harold. I dropped Will off at the airport that afternoon and me and C stayed with daddy that night. Monday we had lunch with daddy, Shan, Shannon and Faith at Adtran (where Shan works) and then me and girl Shannon went shopping for a little bit. After dinner at the McCaig house, I went to my mom's and my best friend from high school came over and visited for a few hours. Alison hadn't seen Callan in a while so it was nice to see her and catch up. She is always so full of information! Mom was bowling that night so she got in late. Tuesday me, mom, and C shopped in Hartselle and Decatur and had lunch at Cahoots (shout out to Julie-gotta try it). Mom cooked dinner for me Tuesday night (rare but delicious) and then me and C headed back to Huntsville to pick up some tights at the Gap and get daddy from the airport.

Oh, I almost forgot about the "accident". While cooking at mom's Tuesday, I decided I would put C in the high chair mom has had for years and let her play while we worked on dinner. Well, the strap in broken that goes between her legs. That should have been my first sign. So we did it CrossPoint style and stuffed a blanket around her to help her stay propped up. The high chair is really slippery. That should have been my second sign. Well anyway, to make a long story short, all of a sudden mom gasped and we both turn to see Callan sliding out of the high chair and landing on her belly. Mom caught her before she hit her face, thank goodness! It made me so sad to know she was hurt (I actually think she was just scared). I will never do that again!!

Well, I think you are caught up now. Have a good rest of the week!


  • Bless her. I certainly hope she's not on her Daddy's road to tubes. Maybe this will do it for her. And I'm sure she survived the accident. It's usually worse on Mom than on Baby, huh? :) Much love. Can't wait to kiss her. :)

  • I will have to try Cahoots! I bet that scared you to death when C fell.

  • I hate to hear about her ears and I am glad she survived her fall :) Jack has done the same thing only it was in his stroller and we didn't have him strapped in:)
