Convertible Car Seats

So Ewan is quickly outgrowing his car seat. We want something that has good ratings and something that will fit into a Dodge Neon and an Hyundai Elantra. I've been looking online and have two that I'm considering.
Combi Cocorro
Britax Roundabout

Any thoughts?

We have a crawler!

Well, an army crawler that is! Since Friday Ewan has perfected his army crawl and is now getting into all sorts of trouble. Yesterday he cornered the cat, went after the cat food and cat toys, tried to get under the couch and coffee table and went after the modem and router. Alan and I are in so much trouble!

KY State Fair

Last weekend I took Ewan to the KY State Fair with my in-laws. Alan and I had planning on taking him but then Alan wound up having to go to Arkansas so I went without him. It was nice to have several extra sets of hands, at least for a day or two!
Ewan wanted nothing to do with the goats

My favorite part was the vegetables!

And the Worst Parent in the World Award Goes to...

...this girl. About five minutes before I was going to leave to take Ewan to the doctor today HE FELL OFF THE BED!!!!! I was changing his diaper and the next thing I know he rolled over and went headfirst onto the floor. Needless to say, he cried, I cried, I think the cats even cried. His pediatrician said he was ok and that I should just keep an eye on him today. He's been fine, playing and eating like normal. I just feel absolutely horrible. I know that it probably happens more often than you think, but I don't know what I would do if anything happened to my baby boy!

All I Want for Christmas...

is my two front teeth! Ewan's top front teeth have finally broken through. The top teeth on either side are also coming down. Hopefully it happens soon. I hate seeing my little man in so much pain!

On another note, Ewan will be crawling any day now. He was rocking back and forth on his hands and knees tonight. I was hoping he would wait until Alan got home, but it looks like that may not happen. I better go baby gate shopping this weekend!

Oh yeah, Alan is gone for TWO WEEKS for work. I totally have respect for single parents...being the only one taking care of him is exhausting! Nine days to go!

Today's Adventure

So I was out traipsing in the middle of nowhere in Ohio County, KY for work today. Talk about off-roading in the neon! I had to go down long abandoned farm lanes looking for ruins of farmsteads...I'm honestly glad the majority were roped off...backing out of the few I went down to get to a point where I could turn around sucked! Let's just say my reverse driving skills are lacking in this vehicle. I'll let the archaeologists get the buildings I couldn't get to. Sorry Sarah, Kevin and Doug!

Tomatoes Yay!

My tomato plant FINALLY has tomatoes! Maybe it's because the temperature has finally cooled off a little, but instead of gazillions of blooms, I've now got gazillions of little tomatoes!

Not to mention the green peppers and green beans...

My mom will be happy when I bring her tons of veggies in a few weeks!

Watermelon Salsa

So I made this to go with baked chicken for dinner: watermelon salsa. I was so excited. But, it was gross! Such a disappointment!

New Table

We FINALLY got our dining room table today! We've been using Alan's breakfast table that he had in grad school, but it's bar height and only seats two people. Ok for just us, but not for entertaining. I want Ewan to grow up eating meals at the table as a family - something I never had - and now we can instill that tradition in him!

 On another note, my tomato plant is CRAZY! It's almost completely taken over my little garden. It has about 50 flowers, but no tomatoes. I never have luck with them it seems.

Seven Months!

Ewan "Talking"


People say things happen in threes and that is definitely the case in the Higgins Household lately! Except, these aren't good things.

1. I got a speeding ticket in Indy coming back from my friend's bridal shower and bachelorette party. 
2. The transmission on my car is probably going out.
3. I had to pick Ewan up from daycare today because he has thrush.

Plus, Alan is going out of town for two weeks straight starting next week. Just. Perfect.
I know Google is not your friend, but I've been reading up about treating thrush in an infant and it is a pain in the you know what! Plus, I have to be treated as well since I'm still nursing, which will be interesting considering I don't have a doctor in town because my insurance just kicked in yesterday. Ewan has a Dr. appointment later today and I really hope that this stuff clears up quickly and doesn't return!

Ewan is cutting FOUR top teeth! I can tell they're really bothering him and not much helps. We've tried teethers, Orajel, Tylenol, but sometimes he just screams. It beaks my heart to see my baby boy in so much pain. I hope they cut through soon!
