Great and Good, Grood.

Just wanted to post this real quick-like. I just found out that what I thought were stubborn white lumps of thrush in Gideon's mouth are actually something called Bohn's nodules...? Ever heard of those? Anyway, I guess they are common and harmless, although gross looking. That means that whatever was actually thrush went away weeks ago! Huzzah! I stopped using the violet gunk, I think that pretty much took care of everything. I hope the real thrush won't come back! So that's exciting, huh? I'm glad that he's okay, although I feel pretty dumb for not figuring it out sooner. That's what the first kid is for, right? Hahaha...uhh.... hmm.

Useless Updates :D

So, Kristi threatened me if I didn't keep blogging. Oh yeah Kristi, who is that baby I am holding in that banner photo? Hyrum, perhaps? Man, look how awesomely great I was back then. Now I'm a boring mom with my hair in a bun. Almost every time I log into my blog, something new is on there, it's like Christmas! Half of the photos that Kristi puts up are ones I've forgotten even exist. Um, nothing really worth blogging about. I hate it here at the in-law's house. Aggggggzzz!
Wait, there is something worth telling, I forgot. Caleb is working on our own little house! They have already poured the concrete walls for the basement level. He and his dad are over there right now working on it some more. Oh the excitement! It's kinda small, but what do you expect for a first house? I hope it actually gets finished and I get a chance to live in there!

Also, we are trying the gentian violet goo on baby Gideon. His face is all smudgy purple, it's cute and sad at the same time. I cannot believe how long this thrush has lasted! If this stuff doesn't work, then I dunno! A stronger prescription from the doctor's office, I suppose... which we could never afford. No, I don't have health insurance. Save your lecture! I know I should, blahhhh. Anyway, back to Gideon. I feel bad for him, but he's a pretty good sport. He is still happy and growing like crazy. He's 13 weeks old today, I do believe, and he's about 16.5 lbs. Yowza! He's already outgrowing his 3 month clothes and fitting into some clothes labeled 6 months. At this rate, I won't be able to carry him around by 6 months. My mom said that's how Justin was as a baby, so I guess Gideon could grow up to be 6'4".Gideon without Gentian Violet
Gideon after the Gentian Violet. Awww.
