Tonight was an interesting night. After a long battling day with 3 cranky kids, my mood suddenly went from tired and frustrated to happy and blessed. I thought while the kids are being quiet an playing in the bath, I would run and check my emails and have a few minutes to myself. To my surprise not 2 seconds after I headed out of the bathroom, I hear a little voice saying "I see you". I then see Addison's naked wet behind following me and chasing me as if I was trying to get away from her. I thought it was so funny that I had to snap a picture. Her eyes look so BLUE in this picture. Now I know I may be biased because she is my child, but I seriously think she could do catalog modeling :o). Any one know of a good agent??? ....
This was her "Cheese" face Tyler and Kate have been sharing a room for the past couple of weeks. I snuck into Tyler's room the other night and found this. It was just too cute to not take a picture and cherish.
Watching Ms. Vanessa and trying to copy her moves Kate and her infamous "Tappy Shoes" standing next to her friend, Mazie
Since Kate was about 10 months old, she has always loved music and bopping around. When she was almost 3 I decided to put her in dance. Kate has been taking dance through our local Community Center for about 3 months now. She absolutely loves it. She is doing so much better with following along and learning the technical moves of both ballet and tap. I am hoping once she is a little older to put her in a dance academy where she will actually perform in recitals. Addison is going to be there with her soon. She loves to watch her sister and try and copy the moves. She is also a lover of music and moving. Anytime there is anything on the radio, she is rockin out in her carset. I haven't caught a picture of that yet, but will post as soon as I do.
Since the weather has been awful here we have had to stay couped up in the house. Needless to say, the kids are going crazy, and I am loosing every bit of sanity I have left. Finally on Thursday we were able to get out of the house. The kids seriously did not know what to do when we got to the park. It was like they had never seen one before. It was still a bit chilly but we were able to get out!! Naps were really easy on Thursday, and long enough for me to gain any sanity I had left!! :)
So I was sitting here this morning thinking to myself that my patience has been well tested in the last few weeks. With me recovering from a fairly minor outpatient surgery, to Addison having RSV, a double ear infection, and also pneumonia. We dodged a possible hospital admittance. Things were looking up the last couple of days. Addison's test results came back normal. Her chest x-ray came back normal. We can now cut down to 2 breathing treatments during the day, and then as needed. I felt like I could finally get back to "normal" life as it were. Then it hit me!! I walked into Addison's room this morning not only to see her smiling face, but also to a completely glued shut eye!! She has PINK EYE!! Just when I thought we were over the hump of eternal sickness in the Brown household, this hits us.
I took her to the doctor this morning (to which he looked at her for about 2.5 seconds and didn't want to come any closer than 4 feet from her.) Apparently this is highly contagious and they prescribed enough medication, in case the other two get it. Seriously could it pour anymore??
I keep telling myself that it can only go up from here!! After all this I will be a calmer, more patient person than I have ever been in my life!!
So I have finally joined the widespread of bloggers!! Yeah for me!!
So a little update for everyone ... Addison is suffering right now with a double ear infection, RSV, and pneumonia. I feel so bad for her. She hates the breathing treatments and it seriously pains me to hold my baby down and have her scream. Oiy ... hopefully we will get good news when we revisit the doctor on Thursday. We are hoping for no hospital admittance at this point. Fingers crossed!!
Tyler and Kate ... well are crazy as ever. They fight, boss each other around, and have the "typical" brother-sister relationship. There are those rare moments I can catch when they actually like each other.
