Unfortunately, Uncle Alan took a knuckle sandwich to the face. (He was OK)
Some sad news… We found out that Andrew’s wonderful, amazing, sweet, loving daycare provider is moving to Atlanta. We are so sad. It was a wonderful place for him to start out. We are so spoiled by the convenience and peace of mind that we had leaving him there. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for us. I am spoiled by not having him in an actual daycare. He has been so healthy! I am so thankful to Mrs. Crystal for that. Speaking of healthy, he went to the Dr. today for his re-check of his ears and he is over his 1st (double) ear infection! Hooray!
Next up… TEETHING. Yikes!
Andrew is growing so fast and learning so much. I walked into his day care this week and this is what I found...
As you know, 5 months also brought our first actual (unscheduled) visit to the pediatrician. Here he is taking his medicine. I wish I would have invented that little gizmo. He is a trooper. He as not acted like he felt bad one minute. 3 more days of antibiotics. Hopefully he will be all better next week. So far, so fun!
This past weekend was nice. We had some good, quality family time. You can't beat that! Friday, I came home to a wonderful husband who had gone shopping for me and bought me several things for Mother's day. He is so thoughtful! Saturday, we had lunch with my mom (see post below) and did some other shopping too. Sunday, we went to church and spent the day with Bo's side of our family. Somehow, I missed my Sunday nap, but other that that it was a great weekend. The other sad thing was that I didn't get one single picture of me and Andrew this weekend!
He is now rolling over constantly. It was so hard for me to get this shot because everytime I would put him down to get the camera, he would flip over before I could even get ready. He is getting so big and is just so much fun every day.
So the story goes like this...
We went to the doctor a week after his 4 month check up because he was not finishing his bottles and he ALWAYS finishes his bottles. I was worried that he might have an ear infection. So after calling and speaking to the nurse and telling her about all of his "symptoms" she convinced me to come in because it "sounds like an ear infection". So we did. Turns out that he just wasn't hungry! He had gained 1 pound in 1 week. Dr. Dudgen sort of laughed when I told him that he was eating 7 ounces, 6 times a day. He was definitely getting enough!
So we have now gone to 5 bottles a day and he has been doing great. Thursday, he was a little congested and had a cough. Friday morning he was very stuffed up, but felt great ~ laughing, talking, playing etc. I thought I would make an appointment just in case. My mom picked him up from his day care and said that he was in the best mood and was so happy. I thought about cancelling the appointment but I didn't. Good thing! Diagnosis: DOUBLE EAR INFECTION.
