Look who’s getting bigger! More and more like a toddler every day. He pulls up, bends down, opens cabinets, explores everything, picks up cheerios with his fingers, babbles, laughs and interacts with us in so many fun ways. Not one to be held captive on the monthly chair photo shoots, either. I might have to tie him down next month…
This month was a tough one, ladies and gentlemen! As I looked at our whiteboard
command center calendar on our fridge, just about every day had a little “x” mark on it, meaning M had his daily dose of antibiotics (or THREE daily doses as in the case of the most recent antibiotic…don’t get me started). The poor guy couldn’t catch a break. Sinus infection, colds, double EI’s…ugh. We are now down to ONE MORE DAY of antibiotics and according to our wonderful pedi, we should be clear for awhile. I took him in AGAIN today due to a 101.5 degree fever that he spiked last night. Joked with Dr. E that we were back for our weekly visit and found out that devilmedicine was in fact doing it’s job and cleared up those little ears. That was the good news. The not so good was just the fact that Myles is suffering from yet another cold virus. At least we don’t have to do the 3 shot series.
Ah, so much for the sickkies. Hoping that these next two weeks out of daycare will help M stay away from the germies and start feeling better! What? Two weeks out of daycare? Why, yes, our spring break is quickly approaching. And not a moment too soon. So many fun things planned for M and his big sis. We’ve got trips to the zoo, picnics and of course, a special celebration for big daddy-o, who will be celebrating a milestone birthday himself. Yes, indeed we’ve got some plans!
So, besides the germie bugs, M has been on the move, exploring every square inch of our house and finding all kinds of new things to get in to. He loves our TV stand, which houses some super safe GLASS doors that are apparently so much fun to open and close. Oh, and then there’s the carbon monoxide detector plugged in to the wall. That’s really fun to take OUT of the wall and listen to the hysterical beeping and siren-like sound. Yup…funners.
He’s been trying new table foods, seems to love the fruits we give him, but has a strong liking for BROCCOLI! I love watching him eat the little tiny buds, it’s so cute! He’s been taking baths in the real tub now and loves splashing around. I can’t wait to sign him up for swimming lessons this summer. He still has a strong bond with his big sis. They love playing the “gookie” game, which is something S invented. It reminds me of the “near and far” skit on Sesame Street with Grover. S comes bopping along into the room and yells “GOOKIE!” at the top of her lungs and Myles cackles/laughs hysterically. S exits the room. Rinse. Repeat. About a million times. So much fun.
Another fun thing for M has been stroller rides. He loves to just chill out and be pushed along, epecially in this nice weather we’ve been having. I have a feeling he’ll be a-walkin’ soon. Look out world, here he comes!
