It has been a very long time since I updated the blog.  My lil Ashten has cut teeth, crawled, said "Dad-Dad", learned to walk and had his first birthday.  In other words, he's not my little baby anymore, he's a big boy.  Time has flown by so fast.  I still remember the day I brought him home like it was yesterday. 

I have not had time to do everything that I have wanted because having a little one around upsets any schedule that you try to set for yourself.  Hopefully, I can make time to do regular updates.  We shall see.  In the meantime, here's a recent pix of my little man.

Just a quick note to say hi to everyone.  Unfortunately, if it's not one thing it's another.  My baby is getting over this new strain of the flu.  It has hit pretty hard in the Memphis, TN area.  And it's been mostly small children. 

He's so young that it's not a whole lot of medication that he can take so he's just been soldiering through.  I've rubbed him down and slathering him up with whatever I could but he's been sick since the first part of the month.  Although he hasn't had any fever lately and he has been oked to go back to daycare, he is still congested and coughing, and not 100%. 

And in the mist of already feeling horrible, he just cut his first tooth!  WTF you said!?  Same thing I said when the dr told me what was going on.  He has been gnawing on yours an his fingers for over a month now.  He has even managed to get his toes in his mouth.  He is not even five months old yet and his tooth has broken through the gum.  Slobbing, gnawing, pooping,  and crying galore.

So yeah, it's been chaos around my house and not a lot of time for reading.  And since he has been using me for his snot rag, I've caught the end of his sickness.  I took my flu shot  back in October so I didn't get the flu, but I still got sick.  As close as I was to all  the coughing and sneezing and in my face, I knew I was bound to come down with something.  I'm  a little better, probably at 70% but I'm bouncing back. 

My oldest son also took the flu shot and he's been a snot rag too but he has not come down with anything yet.  Hopefully it will miss him and we will feel better soon.
