This and That

This and That

Thumbs Up…


…to Brenna being off of all medication for the first time since birth!! We discontinued her skin meds and the Zantac she was on for reflux, and her antibiotics for the latest staph infection ended as well, so she is med-free!


…to the first night Evan and I spent away from the kids! We attended my friend Meredith’s wedding in Chicago on Saturday, and everything went great, both for us and for my parents and mother-in-law who watched the kids while we were away.


…to the 10 pounds, 6 ounces that Brenna is tipping the scales at now! She teetered in the 9-pound range for a while; then she hit 10 lbs and never looked back.

…to Brenna’s little buddy Evan turning 2 on Saturday! If you recall from my previous posts, Evan’s mom has been the biggest help and suuport for me with each new challenge we encounter or question we have. We are wishing Evan a very Happy Birthday from Illinois!




Thumbs Down…

…to the pearly whites that I suspect will soon start poking out of Brenna’s gums. She has been a biting, drooling, cranky little thing lately, and I am thinking that teeth are the culprit. Connor got his first two teeth the weekend he turned 4 months, and with Brenna being born a month early, I am guessing that hers will be making an appearance soon!


…to the air conditioning sucking all of the humidity out of our house. I know this is what air conditioners do, but it’s making baby girl’s skin all dry again 🙁


…to our wonderful ENT doctor’s last day. We will miss you Dr. Ettema!!




Happy Monday everyone!

    So glad you guys got away – you looked so glamorous, too! Good for your marriage – thank GOD you can do it. The AC thing sounds like a trip to Menards hvac department (in your spare time, of course 🙂 Maybe you can actually run a few humidifiers? Prayers headed your way. Glad things are good. God is good!!!
