Helping hands

Eli absolutely loves to help - with anything. From feeding his baby a bottle, to helping with dishes, to making pizza dough with Papa. And we can't forget the garden, which may be his second favorite, only to dishes. He loves dishes (which for Eli, is basically playing in water while we do the dishes - who wouldn't like it). Here's a few of our favorite picks of his help around the house.

Scratch it

The last post, that is. Eli went into the doctor today with another ear infection. All clear Thursday, deeply infected Monday. We're headed to a specialist to talk about the possibility of tubes and whether they would be beneficial or not.

All Clear

Eli visited the doctor yesterday and his ears are clear! This may not seem like a big deal, but given our winter, I want to run through the streets shouting, "My son's ears are clear! My son's ears are clear!" He's had either three or four ear infections, depending on weather this last bought was a separate occurrence or it was the one from late February that never really cleared up. I'm betting on that second option, which makes a month an a half to clear up the stupid thing. He's had two rounds of super-potent antibiotic shots in the doctor's office and went in Thursday morning for a re-check. If his ears weren't clear, they were going to do another shot. But they were completely normal, so Eli got a sticker without having to get a shot. Praise the Lord. Let it be done for this year, please.
