We're still here

We are alive, I promise. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. It's been a crazy few weeks. Here are a few things that have been going on at the Baker house.

Bryan got sick 3 weeks ago and was put on his first round of antibiotics. It's a blessing he has been a healthy boy. Since we are new to town we didn't have a pediatrician yet, so we found one close to our house and got lucky! I love her, but Bryan didn't really care for her too much! :) He woke up this morning with a croup cough. We're praying that won't last long.

Lyndi and Ferrell had a baby shower in Albany last Saturday. We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed seeing baby Grant's new things. We also got to do a lot of visiting. Lyndi is on bedrest and is doing great patiently waiting on her son to arrive.

Birmingham is a fun place to be. B and I explore a little almost everyday. Gas is getting too expensive to keep doing that, unfortunately. We're not totally unpacked, but almost. Our neighborhood is so quiet and pretty and I'm enjoying it a lot.

We've been visiting a church that we really like. The worship is awesome and the pastor preaches some awesome sermons. He pretty much lays it out there for everyone.

Bryan turned 20 months old yesterday. He's trying to repeat everything we say. He has also taught himself lots of new sign language by watching Baby Einstein. Our little man amazes us every day. Some of his new words are Sug (Penny's name), cookie, duck, tree, flower, PaPaw, pappie (for paci), pease (please), mo (more), all (all done), mommy, daddy, doggie, daisy (for daisy dog), bowl, cat, and mooooo. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of them all. He tried to say his name yesterday and did a great job. He has been saying moma, but now he says mommy sometimes. I like that. :) Let's see...what else is he doing? He's "running" a little faster. It's more like bouncing. haha! He feeds himself well with a spoon. He won't let us brush his teeth because he has to hold the toothbrush. I'm not sure how much brushing is going on. Oh well! :) I'm sure there is more to update, but my brain is tired.

How are you? What's new in your life?

**Update since starting this post--We had to take Bryan to the Children's Hospital clinic tonight because he started running a fever. He officially has the croup. Poor guy!**

Poor B (and poor Mommy and Daddy). It hurts to see them so sick! Take care of our little Matt Jr.

Ugh...the croup is no fun. I remember Cassie having a bad case of it when she was very small. Clint was working that night, and it sounded like she could hardly catch a breath! Sitting in a steamed-up bathroom or outside in the cooler night air can be helpful. Hope he feels better soon!

I hope he is starting to feel better- I know that has not been fun (for you, Matt, and B!!). I'm so glad you like the house and B'ham- I can't wait to bring Grant for his first visit!! Love y'all!!
