float like a butterfly, sting like a...mosquito?

No, Ethan's not the new world champion - he just looks like it. He woke up Monday with this little swollen red spot on his eyelid. It got progressively bigger as the day went on so I called his doctor's office. The nurse said it was probably a sty and there wasn't anything they could do about it other than put a warm compress on it. She said if it got bigger to the point where he couldn't open his eye I probably needed to come in. Well, this picture was yesterday morning and we went to see the doctor. He said it was a mosquito bite. It just looked really bad because certain places on the body tend to swell bigger than others. One of which is the eye. I paid the $25 co-pay, went home and gave him some Benadryl. It looks a lot better today. I think the Benadryl was making him cranky though.

Today he was such a pain. I took him to Chick-fil-a for lunch and as soon as we pulled into the parking lot he says "play?". We ate lunch then he pushes his tray away and says "play?". I said okay and we went into the little play area in front. For the first time he climbed all the way up the slide onto the little platform. After a while it was time to go and he would not come down. I kept telling him to come down the slide and he just made his little whiny noise. I finally had to crawl up the slide, that by the way is not made for big people and quite claustrophobic, and bring him down. I was so mad. It might be a little while before we go back.

Oh, before I forget - I'd like to give a shout out to my brother-in-law, Adam. He was disappointed he didn't see his name in my last post. He and my mother-in-law, Donna, did join us for brunch on Mother's Day. There. Happy?

Awww, poor little guy. Good thing you got a picture of it, though. ;)

LOL about the whining noise. We are going through the same thing here.
