MORE teeth, Dancing, Fall? and Allergy Upgrades

Houston we have FOUR teeth!

For the last week or so, Kian has been whiney and complaining a lot. That’s usually not like him! Last week I noticed a tooth was getting ready to poke through…one that is next to his top two front teeth. Well, a few days ago I got a chance to look in there again and noticed a molar had poked through and he is getting his eye teeth on the bottom…from what I hear those eye teeth are some of the most painful. From what I can tell he has about 4 bulges right now in his gums! Gosh! I can’t wait for all this teeth to be in!

Kian could also use your prayers...he's got a runny nose and an on and off fever I think from teething...he's miserable at keep him in your thoughts.

Kian’s new tasks this week are…

Every week it seems that Kian is into something new! We have sliding doors that hide our washer and dryer and he has recently learned to open them. I am waiting to hear screams from him getting his fingers stuck…but he actually hasn’t so far…I am thinking about trying to get something so he won’t be able to open it at all.

He also has learned to climb on top of our shabby-sheik trunk! He likes to throw his toys behind it and once he was trying to get one of them and he climbed on top! Once he was up there I could tell he was a little scared being up there lol! To be honest, I was scared too! He’s quite a daredevil!

He’s a Dancin’ Machine!

Yeah, Kian has finally learned to dance! My friend Angela noticed him dancing one day a few weeks ago so no when I see him bobbing up and down I encourage him to do it more hehe It’s so cute because he dances to EVERYTHING! The music on toys..I never thought he would get down to “I’ve Been Workin’ On The Railroad,” music that is played over head in stores, music that’s on TV….we sure had fun when Bon Jovi was on Oprah last week! He really liked that!


Please, autumn hurry up and get here! Today it was in the 90’s! Is it really the end of September or is it July!?!?! It cooled off for a while up here and then it warmed back up again. They say it will cool off into the 70’s this weekend and I can’t wait for it! I just went out and bought Kian’s fall wardrobe and now all those nice new things (and nicely used items I got on ebay) are just waiting for him!

Allergy Upgrades

Yeah, we did all our allergy upgrades for our Mr. Turkey Toes. I am so thankful that we have a subscription to Consumer Reports because the air purifiers that people were suggesting to me (Ionic Breeze from Sharper Image) was rated one of the worst out there (mainly because it puts out a toxin from it’s exhaust…yeah, weird that an air purifier would pollute the air!). Anyway, I am glad we did our homework! We ended up getting a great deal on the purifier we got through (it wasn’t in stores). It has a HEPA filter which is what the allergist suggested.

We also got a new vacuum! Thanks to a nice 20% off coupon at Bed Bath and Beyond I saved us over $50 on it! We needed to get a vacuum with a HEPA filter on it since I am now vacuuming daily (well, I try to!) This vacuum was rated #1 by Consumer Reports and I have to say that it was worth it! It’s so much easier to use than my other Hoover (both our new and former vacuums are Hoovers) and all the tools are on board so I don’t have to go searching for anything!

We feel like Kian has already made leaps and bounds of progress…now if his teeth would stop this runny nose thing from happening I could get him off the Pulmicort for a while! Good news is that he hasn’t had any wheezing at all! :) That makes us all very happy!
