The 4 girls before the wedding!
CONGRATULATIONS Mr and Mrs. Michael Andrew Caldwell!
We love ya'll!! Thanks for letting us be a part of your day!
Tallon is one loved little boy. Makgill sure could make Tallon laugh and they enjoyed playing together. Towards the end of our time, Tallon finally acknowledged that there was a baby around. Little Clara Beth is soo beautiful and I enjoyed getting to hold a baby again! ( Tallon hardly sits still long enough for me to hold him anymore!) Uncle Collin took Tallon's 9 month portraits while we were home and they are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! Thank you sooo much Collin!!
Tallon with Aunt Erin and Makgill!
Reeves had a great time playing with Makgill!
The past week and a half have been pretty exciting for our family. We traveled via airplane to SC to see our extended families.
Tallon was soo excited about getting to see all of his grandparents, aunts and uncles and his cousins!
We got to spend Father's Day with both of our dads and both of my grandads at the lake.We are so blessed to have such Godly earthly fathers Thank you for your example to us! We love you both greatly!!
Tallon and I made Reeves a Canvas with Tallon's footprints and a picture of Tallon and Reeves on it for Reeves desk! TALLON LOVES HIS DADDY!!!!!
Tallon loved the water and enjoyed playing with everyone- especially Makgill in the "small pool"! Reeves and I enjoyed lots of good food ( Thanks Nana and Mom!) and enjoyed spending some time on the water!
Uncle Collin on the innertube!! He won the award for the best style- 10/10!!
Everyone enjoyed relaxing on the screened in porch!

You love to play at the Dr's office- you tear the paper to shreds and enjoy smiling and talking to yourself in the mirror!! We are going to start giving you just a little bit of formula along with breastmilk and hopefully that will help you gain a little bit more weight. You love to eat cheerios and veggie puffs but unfortunately, they don't have tons of nutrients!
We took you to see the Dr yesterday and you weighed 16 lbs 10 oz (4%) and are now 27 1/4 in (15%) tall! You have really started to slim down now that you are constantly on the move!! You are feeling much better now and the Dr gave you a clean bill of health- we are now ok to go meet your new cousin Clara Beth and play with Makgill. You are also going to get to meet LOTS of mommy's family at Aunt Liz's wedding - they all can not wait to see you!! What a fun trip this will be now that our household is feeling better=)

1) resting with Tallon asleep in our arms - he would wake up and starting crying as soon as you would lay him down
2) checking Rectal temps every 2 hrs
3)giving Tallon tylenol every 4 hrs
4) giving Tallon cool baths to try to help bring down his temp
5) desperately ( at times) trying to get Tallon to take just a small dropperful of pedialyte
6) calling the advice nurse at the Dr's office and our moms frequently for advice!!
As you can now tell, we survived and all is better! The temp came below 102 around noon and was 99.8 at 4 pm. For all those other young moms- I think it was when I finally starting giving Motrin plus Tylenol that he finally started to drop his fever. Just don't give them together ( 2 hrs apart).
Tallon sure was sweet, even though his cries and his little face were sooo pitiful! It is not easy to watch your child sick!!! I am soo thankful that this ordeal is over.
Mommy is soo funny! Why would I want to get down and play when I can snuggle up and take a nap!
Maybe if I shake it a little....
ok, how come I am not getting anything out of this Mom!?!?!?
Don't worry- Tallon was COMPLETELY supervised with the Tylenol and the tylenol was placed right back in the closet that night with our other medicines
