Alayna is still bothered with those teeth. She is sleeping well at night but not napping well, poor thing wants just to cuddle and chew. Aidan's behavior has been CRAZY this week. I know it is the anxiety of the trip and school starting in a few weeks.
Please say a prayer for us as we travel today. Pray for great behavior from all 4 kids while we are gone (oh what am I talking about PLEASE pray for good behavior for them all the time). Pray for peaceful sleep for all kids and us so that we can truly enjoy each day that we are there.
I don't have a laptop so I will be offline until we return in August. I hope you have a great week while we are visiting Mickey & Minnie!
I will be sure to post some vacation pics that first week in August when we get settled in.
SUPER HUGE thanks to our sweet Heigele friends who not only loaned us but delivered to us their cool stroller and car seat bag for the airplane! You guys are the best!
Auf Wiedersehen, Cheerio, Au Revoir, Goodbye for now!

She doesn't seem much worse for the wear except she is chewing on everyone (not everything). Today we stopped by to see Uncle Ed & Aunt Jane (Aunt Jane "the Queen of Spoiling" made autograph scrapbooks for the kids to take to Disney! Thanks Jane!) Alayna chewed on poor Uncle Ed the whole time we were there. When we arrived home she chewed on Aidan for a good 5 minutes before moving on to me...
Today at lunch Alayna was fussing even at mangoes (now this girl doesn't fuss ESPECIALLY at mealtime). Then at dinner she cried again at everything except cold applesauce. You know us Cannons we are not picky eaters so for someone to be fussing during a meal time in our house it must be some serious tooth business.
Overall, she is doing well with the whole teething process, we just wish the only one playing peekaboo in our house was Alayna not her teeth.
I have to say though I love her gummy smile and will miss it when the teeth finally arrive. Guess I should get out the camera and take more pictures!

Jason & I celebrated our 8th anniversary this week! I am truly blessed by a great husband! (Don't tell him I said so as his head will swell!)
We survived VBS this week. We all really had a great time at Crocodile Dock but, we are very tired!
We are going to use this next week to rest up for our trip to Disney next Saturday. Aidan has been packing for months now (I guess I should go and see what is in his carry on...probably everything AND the kitchen sink.)
Update: When Aidan got up on Sunday morning and found money and a sweet note from the tooth fairy he said, "WOW I didn't believe in the tooth fairy but, now I do that is pretty cool she brought me money. I think I will try that with all my teeth" Super cute!

Today we had baby class which was fun. In music class, we played the drums and rain makers then we went to speech class and worked on oral motor skills then for OT we got to get into the pool and swim around (Alayna loved floating around on her back she is such a water baby!)

Dr. Rozina checked her for an ear infection and said that she looked great. She didn't want to do blood work as Alayna was obviously on the mend.
She told us to look for a rash that would give us the diagnosis of Roseola. Good call Dr. Rozina...today Alayna has a mild rash. Thankfully she isn't feeling bad and is definitely getting back to her normal, playful, happy self. Hopefully the rash disappears as quickly as it came and we can get back to life as normal.

Jason, the ever calm parent when our children are ill or hurt (she says sarcastically) wanted to rush her to the ER (bless him he is a great dad). Needless to say I talked some sense into him and we just gave her the motrin and let the fever run its course.

Aidan finished up his swimming lessons this week and made huge progress from last summer. It was so much fun to watch him gliding across the pool. Here he is preparing to jump in as the water was super cold.
The fans gathered on the pool deck to cheer he & Grace on.
It was way too cold for Alayna to get in so she sat out with Uncle Scott & Rayne. Aunt Elise & I were crazy cheerleaders from the sideline.
Many of you have been on the edge of your seats as we have awaiting the results of our summer tooth adventure....Last weekend while nursing Alayna I felt a sharp edge...her bottom tooth is almost in, you can feel it and see it but it hasn't broken the gum yet. Aidan's bottom teeth are very wiggly, jiggly but are still hanging in there. I just know they are going to loose/gain their teeth the very same day.
Have a safe & Happy 4th.
