Rush had an eventful weekend....he woke up on Saturday morning with a red, swollen big toe. We couldn't decide if it was an ingrown toenail or a blister, but either way it was hurting our little guy! We decided to try soaking it in warm water and as you can tell, he thought it was hilarious.....but who doesn't love a foot bath:) The toe is looking better, still can't say it is back to normal though. On Sunday, we discovered he had a clogged tear duct in one of his eyes. Fortunately, after a few days of massaging with a warm wash cloth, it is back to normal. I feel blessed every morning when I get to hold my healthy little baby boy. God has really laid it on my heart to pray for those trying for a baby and babies born with health issues.

Was the sound you would have heard about 6a.m. yesterday morning at our place. Andrew is amazing and always takes the early morning baby shift so I can get some sleep. It has been unusually cold here for October, so he turned on the heater to warm up little Rush. It was the first time we have ever turned on the brand new heater, so it emitted the typical lovely, burning smell that comes with it. As he was headed back to the living room, the smoke alarm started to go off. I was in the midst of a deep sleep and he was groggy from getting up at 5:30 to feed the baby. As soon as I heard the alarm, I bolted out of our room screaming (yes screaming) ready to grab Rush and bolt down the stairs. Drew was shocked by the whole situation and the fact that I came running out screaming and somehow tackled me to the ground yelling "its ok" over and over. After about a minute, we both realized what was going on and calmed down, curious as to how both of us ended up on the floor. In the meantime, Rush was chilling peacefully on the couch, Caesar was running around shaking, and the smoke alarm had stopped going off. I can't stop laughing every time I think about it because I have the mental picture of us both screaming and ending up on the floor. If there is ever a real fire, I can only pray that we will both handle it much better than that!
