We love you! You are such a wonderful husband and daddy. Thank you for everything you do for us.
Grace is doing well. Her rash has cleared up and the new antibiotic seems to be working. Since I've told a couple people about her new allergy, I've learned how serious a Penicillin allergy can be. I'm so thankful that she only got a rash, since my granny told me if could fatal... SCARY!
Grace also got her 6th tooth today! Surprisingly she hasn't been that fussy... just drooling constantly.
As some of you guys know I've been trying to wean from breastfeeding for a couple months now. I've been down to nursing once at night for quite a while now and couldn't manage to drop that feeding. Well Grace has finally weaned. I tell you though, when I first started nursing 13.5 months ago I would NEVER in a million years thought I would have nursed this long. It really got to be so easy, especially since I was staying at home, so I just kept nursing. Anyway, I was sort of sad for a split second, but it will be nice to have my own body back to myself!
Oh and I almost forgot about other news I have... I quit my job today! Yeah, I know I just started, but it wasn't working out. I wasn't getting paid very much and since I was only working 20 hours I was barely making enough to pay for daycare. I've been so run down, our house is a mess and I'm just not fulfilled from working like I use to be (probably b/c I worry constantly about Grace). Plus, Grace has gotten 2 ear infections, a virus and pink eye all in 4 weeks of daycare. I'm going to work through next week, but then back to being a Stay-at-home mom. :) I'm just so thankful that we are able to make it work with me at home. We are very blessed.

YEAH!! I am so happy Grace is doing better, that you quit your job (so maybe we all can hang out more, selfish reason sorry) and that you have finally weaned. I know that you were ready for awhile so I am glad that it has happened. Maybe when you want you guys can come down here or maybe we can come up there for a day! That would be lots of fun! Have a great rest of the week and look forward to seeing you guys soon!

Great News all around (except for all the sick stuff!...poor girl)! Welcome home. I just now checked in on your blog, so I got all caught up! I'm so happy for you that you decided to quit working since it wasn't working out. I'm not happy it didn't work out, but that now you know what you really want and you're doing it. Good for you. Congrats on weaning, too!

Congrats on everything, except the sick baby! I never thought that I would nurse for 14 months either when I first started - I had just hoped I could make it a year!
I wish my little one wasn't fussy when getting teeth! In fact I ended up taking her to the DR yesterday to get checked out to make sure she didn't have an ear infection or something since she was so fussy - but just a little cold and TEETHING!
Good luck with the staying home thing again!

I'm allergic to penicillin too, and have the same reaction as Grace. Glad to hear she's doing better now! :)

Congratulations on your decision! It really is great to have the flexibility to do what you think is best for your family.
