We haven't had many happy kid photos to post because it seems every weekend for months, Sutton has been sick and Hana has been hiding. Super loud March thunderstorms cause strange behavior out our house...
|Somebody please buy me a thundershirt!|
And then there is the issue of mud. With the rain comes soggy trails and we bring alot of mud home from our runs. This is an issue for me under normal circumstances because I am somewhat OCD. But while our house is on the market, it becomes somewhat of a larger issue.

We ventured out of our El Rodeo comfort zone to hit up Red Robin recently. Sutton ate green beans and proceeded to bang a rattle loudly on the table for a solid ten minutes. It was great, I kept peering around at all the other tables expecting evil stares but nobody cared! YUM!
|This is so fun!|
The day before Sutton's tube surgery he was home with 103 degree fever. He is not your average sick kiddo. No cuddling in the rocking chair for him. He likes to be outside, preferably moving at a decent clip. So we've put in some miles on the deck and in the yard. As you can see he has a new toy that went everywhere with him that day.
|Thanks Dad, I love my strap!|
Our little dude is obsessed with straps. Straps on his carseat, on the jogging stroller, on his high chair, on the umbrella stroller, my race belt, etc. So this 5 inch strip of webbing that Walker gave him and has become his most prized possession to date.
Despite the fact that he had an ear infection the day of, Sutton's surgery went well. The tubes should stay in for 6 months to 2 years and we are hopeful they will kick our ear infection cycle. With new ears he seems to hear a great deal more and he is sooo much happier.
He is still an incredibly content baby just sitting. He has absolutely zero desire to crawl, roll, or scoot anywhere. We had our first play date in the park with friends today and the boy loves to swing!

|Peek-A-Boo...I see you under the table.|

|These fools finally put my cape on the right way.|
|I just can't take all the fun.|
Sutton has started his new school and it is wonderful! It feels like we are running all over town now, but it is so worth the effort and the expense. He is suddenly rolling around the house, sitting up by himself, and thoroughly enjoying tummy time.
|Sitting up strong.|
And the little man loves food! He definitely inherited his Dad's appetite, thankfully. But he had his third ear infection this past week and it was accompanied by Croup. Which meant another barking cough and lots of wheezing. But this time we loaded up with antibiotics, a steroid, and nebulizer treatments so he is well on his way to being 100%. Next up, a flu shot on Tuesday!
|Still jumping......look at that air!|
|Walking practice.....soon to be running!|

Sutton had his six month check up. Sixteen pounds, eight ounces and twenty six inches long. A big boy, compared to where he started. He is finally nearing the fiftieth percentile in both weight and length. He still has a little noggin but our pediatrician assured us that so did Einstein. He is finally feeling good and he fills our days with so many smiles, giggles, and lots of chatter. I ordered his first pair of big boy shoes last night, Keens!
So super cute.They won’t fit him until late summer or early fall but I couldn’t pass them up for $19.95, yay for www.endless.com. Speaking of shopping… I’m trying Rue La La ladies. But it’s so hard! I need serious time to ponder purchases and these things sell out in a matter of hours. I know I’m weird. I put items in an online shopping cart and then analyze their worth and my level of need for days before hitting the “complete your order” button, if I do it at all. But it’s how I roll. I digress. Back to Sutton’s appointment. He is ready for lots more solids. And it’s supposed to be the same table food we are eating every night. And it should be consumed at the table with us. And it’s supposed to be fresh! I should explain that nobody in our family currently eats at the same time. Nobody eats at a table (unless our coffee table qualifies). And five nights out of seven, dinner is not fresh, it’s a Red Baron pizza or it’s microwaved! I feel so guilty about this. Feeding our family is another ball that I’m trying to juggle along with work, running, and last but certainly not least, good quality time with Sutton. It was perhaps a tough week to hear how poorly we are doing in the nutrition category since I am struggling with work and our current daycare provider. So there is my resolution for the new year, it’s only one, but it is a big one. Find balance! And speaking of balance…check out this guy doing his thing.
He is so happy to be upright. Thanks Granny and PopPop, we loooove the Jumperoo.
P.S. We are racing our first trail race of the season tomorrow. So excited. It’s a little one put on by our favorite RD’s and it’s close to home, but next week we go big. 35K at Swinging Bridge. My right knee and foot hurt just a teeny tiny little bit and Walker has struggled to get in his long runs with all the illness Sutton has brought home to us from daycare. Fingers crossed we can hold it together.
