Mom Lovin Hop no.24

One would have thought that after the craft fair life would have settled a little… NOPE! The next morning Gabriel woke up with a 103.5 temp then eventually hit 104.1 so we took him to the doctor and discovered he had an ear infection. Tuesday morning at 2am he woke up in the middle of the night hot as an ember with a temp of 104.2- this was when I started to get worried. In the midst of calling an on-call doctor about whether or not I needed to take G-man to the ER my husband doubled over and started moaning and crying due to severe chest pain! I may have sort of freaked out on him, "I CANNOT DEAL WITH OR WORRY ABOUT BOTH OF YOU AT THE SAME TIME!!! WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?!?!" He told me (moaned to me) to focus on Gabriel first. Once I was informed by the doctor about our situation I moved on to Christopher. Chris finally decided he needed to go to the ER and since our super sick son was back sound asleep I didn't dare wake him, so I called a family friend to come over. Oye. I pray you'll had a LESS eventful first part of the week!

Our guest co-host of the week: Elizabeth from My Glad Heart

Elizabeth and her husband Jay are parents to twins! Her kiddos are just a month younger than Gabriel- that thought of having two guys of his age right now, wow! Elizabeth is passionate about natural child birth and breastfeeding (yahoo!). Her family are Christians who believe in living a simple life (inspired!). Her blog has something for everyone! 

Our featured mama this week is Andrea at Hey Mama, Rock Me.

Andrea is a wife, mother and artist- all of which are evident in the lovely blog she writes. Her blog is most certainly a family/life blog and one that will no doubt touch your heart!
