One more thing...

Funny how when you get what you want…there is a something you have give up! Maximus is now not wearing a diaper during the night…but he also wakes up at 5:30 am to pee and does not go back to bed! I am so impressed with him…he did this all on his own…he said no diaper and wakes himself up and goes pee…no accidents yet and it has been a couple of weeks! He said the other day if he finishes his soup he will be big enough to poop in the potty! But he measured himself and he said he was still not quite there! I guess I will take what I can get…

The other day I noticed Maddox had a whitish tongue…then on Friday she had some blood in her mouth…and she was not taking a bottle for any length of time and she was so hungry…when she would eat…she would eat so fast she would throw up…of course I am thinking stricture…Chad took her in for her H1N1 vaccination and the nurse commented on the white tongue…and it looked like thrush…but she had just had a bottle…then for dinner she kept wanting a cup to drink and not taking a bottle again…then yesterday I tried wiping the white off the tongue and it did not come off…I knew then it was thrush…I called the doctor and of course they had to call Denver and have them call us back…heaven forbid a person in Casper work on a weekend! So they called in the prescription…and of course I got snippy with the pharmacy because they never check there messages and so I had to wait an hour to get the prescription filled…it was funny though because this women came in and the same thing happened to her and I could tell she was sick…she sits down and we began to make fun of the whole pharmacy experience! She turned out to be a Pediatric nurse and answered all of my questions! It was awesome…I realize this thrush thing is a non issue…but it just irritates me…it is like one more thing, one more medication I have to give her…I am not lazy I just hate giving her medication that she hates and spits out at me…you really cannot bribe a 6 month old with candy! However she did grab a sucker I was eating the other day and began loving on it! 10 more days and we begin cheerios! Cannot wait! She is so interested in anything we are eating…

We have hard wood floors through out our house…so Maddie has been belly scooting…and doing pretty good but not getting to far (to slippery)…a great friend gave us a piece of carpet…I understand that it does not seem significant…but I knew my daycare kids would love it! Turns out Max loves doing summersaults on it and Maddox is actually moving and gaining ground with her belly crawling…it is very cool to watch her get somewhere without just having to roll…also she was able to sit up for about 3 minutes by herself with her own arm support…she is such a BIG girl!

  1. Awesome news on Maddox's scooting! I hope the thrush clears up -- it's frustrating to be kept waiting! I thought that was quite cool how the pediatric nurse was waiting with you.
