Tanner's back!!!

So, Tanner is doing very well. He was sick again with an ear infection and bronchiolitis. After antibiotics, a new reflux med (Prilosec), and breathing treatments every 3 hours he is doing fantastic. The last 2 weeks he's been barely finishing 3 to 4 ounce bottles and taking an hour to do it. The last 3 days he's been taking 6 to 7 ounce bottles in about 20 minutes. This is waaaayyyy less stressful for the both of us. We drive about 40 minutes to All Star Pediatrics in Exton because they are a wonderful group of doctors. Dr. Kathryn provided us with a brand new nebulizer to keep so that we can start breathing treatments as soon as we see signs of congestion from now on. They are the best!! Tanner seems to like the treatments too. He sometimes tries to lick the vapors:) He also gave himself a big scratch on the nose as you can see.

This Thanksgiving was very relaxing. We usually drive to my home town of Altoona which is about 4 hours away. This year my sister, her husband Nate, and my niece Sydney came to have Thanksgiving with us at my Mom's. I did miss seeing the rest of the family though.
Baby's first Thanksgiving.
Tanner took some time away from eating turkey to get a picture with Nona.
The second half of the day was at my mom's house. Tanner got sleepy from all of the turkey that he ate, got into his jammies, and slept in his favorite spot (Mimi's chest). Mimi is a little camera shy.
In Carter news.....a few weeks ago I mentioned that it was time to get rid of the binkie. Carter has done so well with this. he does get it to sleep but as soon as he wakes up in the morning and from his nap he leaves it on his pillow. I'm so proud of him. Carter is also getting better from his little health scare and is now becoming potty trained.....he's not in big boy undies yet but he is going on the potty. He's always doing something funny. He likes mommy's Uggs.
Tanner did great with therapy today. He sat in his boppy by himself for about 10 seconds. That's a record.
We also took the boys a couple of weeks ago for our annual family pictures. This is a picture of a picture. All 3 boys were ANGELS!!!! It was by far our best photo experience.
Justin and I took Carter and Tyler out to get a Christmas tree while Mimi watched Tanner on Saturday. We came home and decorated it. The boys are into Christmas this year. I'm so excited!!! It's my favorite time of year.
Our tree is GIGANTIC!!!!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
