Weekend Reading – New year edition


I hope everyone have had a great start to 2016 so far. 2016 got off to a rough start for us. Baby T got sick the last week of December. Although the coughing has improved, he has gotten some sort of viral infection on his face. His cheeks have been really red & dry the last few days and this morning he woke up with puffy eyes. It broke Mrs. T and my hearts when he said “eyes broken” the first thing he woke up this morning. Mrs. T took him to the doctor today to get checked again. Hopefully he’ll get better in the few days and get back to his little charmer routine. ūüôā
