Busy Summer

Lake and I have had a blast since school was out. The first week I potty trained Lake! I did the "3 days to potty training" and he hasn't had an accident yet. It really worked. We've been going to the library, the mall, Chuckee cheese, the movies....We have really enjoyed the lake house this summer too. We will be going there today to spend the 4th of July weekend and then Monday, it's off to Tennessee. I also need some electronic advice. My laptop and my digital camera have officailly bit the dust. I want something fairly inexpensive since the lifespan of my current laptop was only about 3 years. The only thing i use it for is internet. I want a really good camera but durable. My current camera took a tumble on the tile floor by a certain 2 1/2 year old who was using it as a basketball...Any advice will be appreciated. I hope everyone is having a great summer!

We have internet again!

Well, our internet servicce has been out for about two months. When it first went out, I was on the phone for 2 1/2 hours trying to get it fixed. And of course I got disconnected and they never called back. I thought I was going to die without my laptop! Actually, at first I was a little stressed but then after a week I really didn't miss it at all. It turned out to be a stress relief...I didn't have to update my blog, check my facebook, check my email....Anyways, I have decided that since it is fixed I will set time aside once a week to get on the internet. Check back soon for some recent updates of what Lake has been doing! I am so excited it's summer, I have 3 months to spend with my little buddy!

Rodeo Fun

Spring Break came and went really fast this year. Lake and I had lots of fun; especially at the rodeo. Lake got to spend a day at the kids areas with his friends Lauren and Landon and a night with his cousins watching Grant do the "Muttin Bustin" and listen to Pat Green in concert. Lake was our favorite little cowboy!

Lake's Surgery

Lake had surgery at Texas Children's Hospital yesterday. Everything went very good. For those of tou who don't know, we have been fighting skin issues with Lake since he was born. He starting getting these bumps all over his skin (molluscum is the technical name)they started to spread and multiply and eventually they were everywhere. The virus can take from 2 weeks to 5 years to run its course. We have been having some of them removed by a blistering treatment, 30 at a time. This wasn't working because they were multiplying too fast and his body couldn't fight it off. Your body works so hard to fight the virus and it weakens your immune system. The only way to get rid of them all at one time it to perform laser surgery. Yesterday, they removed 350 "bumps". We are praying that since they are gone, his body will will the battle. This was the scariest moment as a parent I've had so far. I was so nervous about them putting him to sleep; I didn't even read the paperwork you had to sign, I made Jeff do it. Texas Children's was so great. They had all the kids who were having surgery that day in a big room with lots of toys and they all had on matching little scrubs. When they took him back for surgery, they tricked them by taking them for a wagon ride, of course Lake fell for it. Today, he is doing great. He looks like he has the measles, but other than that you would never know he had surgery.

Remodeling, Ahh!!!!

We have been very busy in the Wadsworth household. Due to hurricane damage last fall, we have replaced the entire roof, entire ceiling and sheetrock of our house,paint, trim, crown molding and tile flooring throughout. I am excited about the end result but getting there has been hell;especially with a curious 2-year old. That being said, I haven't had time to update my blog or get on the computer at all. Here is a brief summary of the past couple of weeks: 2 weeks ago, Jeff went hunting in South Texas, so Lake and I went to spend some time with his Aunt Susan and cousins Grady and Grant. We went to the Zoo; which was vey crowded. We actually had to wait in line to see some of the animals. Grady, Grant and Lake got to ride in the wagon which was pulled by me. Lake's favorite animal was the elephant.He also enjoyed the petting zoo and kissing the goats! On Sunday, when Jeff got back, we went and saw Sesame Steet Live. It was so good, I couldn't believe Lake liked it better than Disney on Ice. Last weekend, Jeff and I went for a much needed date night for Valentines. Lake stayed with Aunt Pam and Mawmaw. We went to eat at the Melting Pot with some friends, went to a Piano bar and stayed the the Hilton Hotel for the night. I think everyone should have a date night out away from all the baby toys, high chairs,etc...Anyways, Jeff and I had a great time. We really needed a break from the construction zone we have been living in. Tonight, Jeff surprised me with all new stainless steel appliances. (I have allways had hand-me-downs, we currently have a beige fridge, white dishwasher and black stove)I can't wait untill everything is done.I am very tired of having dust all over my pants everywhere I go!

In Trouble!

Lake had to go to the principal's office! I was picking up Lake from daycare and the lady up front said hold on just a second, we need to talk to you about Lake. (You know when they say this it is not a good sign) She proceeded to tell me that Lake pushed another child. The kid fell into the bookshelf and sliced his eye. They had to take the kid to the emerengy room to get stitches. I was speechless. All I could think was "Oh my goodness, I can't believe he did this." I left without saying much. When we got into the car I asked Lake, "Did you push Ben?" He said "Mommy, he hit me in the cheek." I know this is not an excuse for the pushing but I felt a little better. I called Jeff and told him to go to the daycare and get the full story. He went back but didn't get much more information but they said they would have a full report for him the next day. The next morning she told me that she talked to his teachers and they said they were arguing over a toy. She said that they wrestle and push each other all the time. I told her to start putting Lake time out for pushing. This will definately have to go in the baby book. Boys will be boys!
