Sick Baby

Aside from a few minutes comforting a child after a bad dream, I have to say I have not been up with a baby during the night in at least six months. Well, yesterday Cody started running 102 fever and woke during the night crying with 101.7. I gave him some Tylenol and held him for about 30 minutes then he started getting restless. I think when the fever broke, he got hot and couldn't get comfortable, so I took him upstairs and laid him down expecting protest, but he happily went back to sleep. I wish I could say the same about myself.... I have such a hard time getting back to sleep.

Today... for the 1st time he went down for his nap without one tear.... shocker... now I'm going to try and nap as well.

Hopefully he is on the road to recovery....

New Videos

We have a book where a bumblebee is crying and has a "Big 'Ol Tear", well the kids have become very interested in their tears. Whenever they cry they have to point out the tears on their faces.

I don't know if anyone has watched Cinderella lately, but at one point in the movie the birds and the mice decide to sew Cinderella a dress for the ball. Well, the girls have also been working to make Cinderella a dress. The kids imaginative play is getting sooo fun and amazes me daily.

The kiddos called and sang Happy Birthday to MaMaw on her birthday and then again at the Birthday Party... and helped her blow out the candles.

An apple a day....

I have a new found respect for dietary fiber ever since Jadon suffered terrible constipation recently. He literally suffered for 24 hours and after a couple enemas, a call to the ped, and a call to a pharmasist he was finally successful, but he was in pain. It's true love literally helping your little one pass a "poopie".

Jadon is the pickiest eater in the family and tends to gravitate to dairy products... cheese, milk, and yogurt are his favorites. He refuses all fruits except bananas (which are also system cloggers). I have started sneaking oat bran and wheat germ into everything I can trying to get his little system back in proper working order.

To all the new moms out there... fiber, fiber, fiber.... because what Jadon went through was horrible....
