105.4 Fever.
Rectal Temps.
More IVs.
Oxygen moniters.
Lung X-rays.

All because of a virus.

The hardest part of being a mom:
Watching your baby suffer and knowing there's nothing more you can do. I don't know who cried more when they took blood--me or Bubba.

Wednesday flight delayed til Saturday. I'll be home soon, and I can't wait to have our little family together again. This mama is exhausted.

Greetings From Florida

That's right. I'm in the marvelous and enchanted land of Florida right now. Breezy beaches, sweet sunsets, flip flops, palm trees, and sun screen slathered babies.

Aunt Karen called me back in December with the wild idea. She flew Bubba and I out for Samantha's birthday. You all know how I am with surprises; I can't keep my mouth shut, but I did it! Samantha actually had no idea, and it ended up being a really cool genuine surprise. Her face was priceless, and she hasn't let that baby go since.

It's hard when family is so far away. I think I might just have to convince Anthony to move down here. Who wouldn't want to live Clearwater, Florida?

Oh, and here's a picture of me and Samantha when we were babies. Now you know where Bubba got his awesome physique.

All Apologies

Breaking News-- Bubba has a new tooth which makes #3. All on the bottom. Weird. And he stands now. It is so cute. He stands, smiles, and waves his arms thinking he is the coolest thing ever. Then he falls.
All apologies for not updating my blog for 3,270,582,430 years. Unfortunately, we do not have the internet. We'll have it again after the move, which will hopefully be soon.

So, what has the Matthews Family been up to?
Anthony's team is doing well. They are playing hard and I'm thinking they'll make the playoffs.
Bubba and I found out last Friday we are anemic. Don't worry, we're taking iron supplements and I'm stuffing that boy full of fortified food. And I'm eating red meat again (gross).
Life is good. I can't wait to move. And I miss reading your blogs! All will be back to normal soon enough.
Your Friend and Fellow Blogger,

P.S. Isn't Bubba's face awesome here?
