Where have we been? Well....Aiden was running through the kitchen, tripped on our laptop power cord and it busted the computer! We do have a back-up computer but it doesn't have our digital camera software loaded on it yet and it does not take a memory card. So although we have cute pictures to share, we are unable to share them just yet. We will get is all straightened out. Our hard drive is being downloaded on to some cds as we speak and I will get the camera thing sorted out soon.
So how are we doing? We are all doing great! Mia went to the doctor for her first official check up. She already gained 1 lb and now is at 19 lbs! She is 27 inches long. Her skin is almost all cleared up. Her ear still had a lot of fluid so we are doing ear drops to break it up a bit and to see if there is really a hole in her ear drum. She got shots and blood taken, which we are still waiting to hear the results on. Her TB skin test was negative. We are still have "poo issues." We are switching her from the colic formula to the regular stuff to see if that helps a bit. She has begun to wave hi and bye and gives the best wet baby kisses ever. She blows kisses and plays peak-a-boo. She also loves to play "how big is Mia? She is still not sleeping through the night - sigh! She still wakes up for one bottle for sure but some nights she is up more than others. She has been able to find her pacifier a couple of times and put herself back to sleep which is progress. I guess I am just never going to get good sleeping babies - ugh!
Aiden is still loving her. They have fun playing together. She likes to watch him and laughs a big tummy laugh at him when he does something crazy. He does have to be reminded to be gentle at times but I don't think he realizes his own strength. He also went to his check up as well. He is in the 95% for height and 98% for weight. He was very proud of the fact that he peed in the cup. He was a tough man for his finger prick and is a fast bleeder, it took 3 band-aids to stop the bleeding! He had to get 2 shots in his arms - ouch! He cried of course but the lollipop and sticker helped ease the pain. He then got a happy meal to celebrate his doctor's visit being over - lol! He goes back to school on August 17th and is very excited. It will be weird to not have him around. He will be in the 4 year old program next year which means going 5 days a week from 8 - 12.
My strep throat is coming back - ugh! I have a message for the doctor hopefully he can give me some stronger drugs. Eric is on a business trip but I am surviving doing it alone - glad he is coming home tonight. Four hands are definitely better than just two especially getting the kids ready for bed. I even successfully took them both to the pool this week by myself. Mia still prefers me to anyone else and wants to be carried a lot which makes getting anything done around the house kind of hard. I know this phase will pass and she will be walking around soon. She is surfing on the furniture and crawls all over and gets into everything!
I hope to get some pictures on here soon - stay tuned for major cuteness!
