Preston finally seems to have gotten over the sickness. The big sickness.
I took Olivia in for her second dose of the flu shot and while we were there the nurse heard his cough and said we should see our pediatrician. Our doctor's office being awesome they squeezed him in a half hour later. Our pediatrician came in and listened to his chest and told me he had walking pneumonia.
WHAT! I wasn't even going to bring him in because he'd only had the cough for a few days and I thought it was getting better. Cue me feeling like the worse Mom ever.
The doctor did make me feel a little better when he told me he was the healthiest sick kid ever. He literally would not sit still. Our ped even apologized to me when he said that I should keep Preston home for a couple of days to let him get better because he was bouncing off the walls.
Five days later we were back.
Preston had finished his antibiotic and his cough didn't sound any better.
They did an x-ray of his chest and checked him for a sinus infection. Good news his chest looked good. Bad news he had a sinus infection. So we went home with a new prescription.
I am so happy he's healthy again!
Olivia has been a busy girl since she learned how to crawl.
Unfortunately some of that busy means she's getting all sorts of beat up.
She came face to face with her dresser giving her a nice little bruise on the side of her face. Then she did this roll thing in the kitchen and landed on the wood floors and ended up with a bruise on her forehead. Funny enough in the exact same spot I have photos of Preston having a bruise at about the same age as she is now. Then this morning she was heading towards the dining room and of course as soon as she hits the wood floor she misses a beat and lands cheek first on the floor.
Poor girl. Not that she's letting it slow her down.
We have a temporary gate up blocking Olivia from leaving the living room and holy does she hate it. But she never hates it more than when Preston is on the other side. She will crawl over and stand up at the gate and scream. She loves her big brother!
I need a vacation. Like yesterday. That would be nice. Somewhere with no snow. Preferably. Now who would like to fund that vacation?
I've been trying to get Preston to keep his bedroom and the play room clean. It's been fun. He is getting better at it though. It helps that I refuse to let him bring any toys out of either of those rooms unless those rooms are clean. So he can't destroy the rooms and then decide to move the game out into the living room.
Preston was singing one of the songs from Frozen yesterday and dancing around the living room while he sang it. I almost died. It was that cute.
I'm trying to be healthier. I both hate it and love it. I just want to eat all of the foods. All of the time. Why is that too much to ask?
Super Bowl is this weekend! I am so excited. Super Bowl is one of my favorite holidays in my family! All of the food. And the fun. My whole family gets together for a party. It is awesome!
I have this urge to re-do and finish up all of the parts of our house. It's both awesome and terrible. Awesome because things are going to look great around here. Terrible because why am I not rich? Who do I talk to about that? So I'm trying to focus on one room or two at a time. Or a little here and there instead of all at once. We'll see how it goes.
