Just a few notes I want to record before I forget and holidays sweep in...
Although Samantha has been sick for the past month she has been sleeping through the night every night, with only a couple exceptions. She smiles big beautiful smiles and talks to us with so much expression! She is 13 lbs. now and has the chubbiest cheeks and a double chin. Her eyes are sooo blue! When she smiles her ears move back about an inch!
She loves to swing and Hayden enjoys turning the swing off... who knows why.
She still will have nothing to do with a pacifier and I've given up on the bottle - she gags when we try to put either in her mouth so why torture her when she's already sick?
Today we went to the doctor and found out she has an ear infection, sinus infection and she is wheezing. She is on albutural breathing treatments and amoxicillan. Hayden also has a sinus infection so he is on amoxicillan as well. She has had to sleep upright for about 3 weeks now. I am afraid this is going to slow her development as far as rolling over and doing baby push ups goes. Hopefully the medicine will do it's job and she will be feeling well soon!
Amanda is doing amazingly well. No sickness. Knock on wood! :) She has been a big helper. She spent last weekend at her Poppy George and Grammy Jessy's and got the royal princess treatment... which she totally deserved. She still can't stop talking about all the fun she had! She went to a Fun House, went shopping for a new baby doll at Target, went to the beach, hung out in the hot tub and slept in a "huge princess bed" (a full size bed with canopy).
We had a scare with Hayden yesterday - he got ahold of the Clorox Cleanup with Bleach and sprayed it at himself and all over a sofa pillow. Hayden and the pillow survived - the nice new shirt sadly, did not. He drank a cup of water and took an extra nap and was extra cranky, but has all the energy of a healthy Hayden child today... even with the sinus infection.
Hopefully the kids will get well soon and I can take our family photo for Christmas. Otherwise, look for our New Years or Valentines Day photo! :)
