This should have posted yesterday but Blogger was being silly...

So apparently I've been slacking on blogging...There just really hasn't been that much to write about. Otto passed his head cold on to me, so for the past few days we have been laying low at home. This morning I took him to the pediatrician to make sure that he wasn't getting a secondary infection in his ears. Although he hasn't had a fever since Sunday, he has been pulling on his ears and waking up several times at night. But thankfully they are just fine. He does have fluid in his ear canal that is causing pressure on his ear drum, but the doctor believes that it is being caused by congestion, not by a bacterial infection. I agree. We were sent home with a prescription for an antibiotic just in case his fever returns this weekend, and a recommendation for an antihistamine to make him more comfortable while he heals. Pray he continues to recover quickly? 
He fell asleep on the ride home and because I practice the 'never wake a sleeping baby' method, he finished his nap in his car seat in the garage.  Chris was a little appalled by this I think, but it’s really just the room in the house where we store the lawn mower. (Garage door was shut, house and car doors were open, it was seventy-five degrees outside, and he probably slept better with his head and shoulders elevated because his sinus issues...he was fine.)
This afternoon we went for a walk around the neighborhood. It has been rainy for the last few days so today was our first walk in quite awhile. Poor guy was still tugging away at his ears. 
With the sudden lack of things to blog about I've decided to do a room by room home tour. Super interesting (ha!) but it will force me to finish hanging pictures and move yard sale boxes to the garage. First up, the dining room because it's small and easy to clean;)
