On a positive note, I took him to his second dentist appointment today at Children's Oral Care Centre. Micah was anxious about going today even though last time was a lot of fun and he came home with tons of "prizes". So we decided to bring his "Dumbo" along - a Disney gift from Granny & Grandpa Harder that he has grown quite attached to. Today Dumbo did everything first - riding on the chair, getting his teeth brushed, picking out a prize. It was perfect. And the dentist there is amazing - I don't know how she did it, but she got Micah to lie back with the sunglasses on and mouth opened perfectly while she checked his teeth. We were just going for a check-up since she had noticed some decay at the last appointment, but thankfully she said the spots hadn't grown. The longer we can keep Micah away from the dentist's drill, the better!
I could tell that Micah was so proud of himself when we left the office, toting his new toothbrush, prize water gun, picture of his teeth and, of course, Dumbo!! I would recommend this office to any parent, and I just noticed on their website that they give free dental exams to children under 18 months!
In other news, I think I may have started feeling a wee bit better this week. I noticed a few afternoons where I would forget about my nausea for a few hours and realize that I hadn't been thinking about what I needed to eat next. I also had some spurts of energy where I started organizing things - I haven't been motivated to do anything like that in a LONG time. So, we may be coming around slightly - and rightfully so since I'm officially into my 2nd trimester at 13 weeks and a bit. However, the other morning I woke up with a sore throat and this morning I have a full-fledged cold. It's lousy. And the combination of a stuffy nose/throat, coughing and nausea is NOT a good one. Yuck. I remember getting so many colds when I was pregnant with Keziah and, with this pregnancy being mostly during the winter, I'm sure I will get my fair share again.
Here's Keziah enjoying some of the luxuries of her young life; a beater full of cake batter and the last sips of Mommy's coffee...
This is what happens when a 21 month old is just too quiet:
Micah has been picking up the songs on the radio lately - especially since we sing a lot of them in church. Here he singing one of his latest faves, until he is abrubtly stopped by his little sister...
And congratulations to Alf, Kelly & Taeya on the arrival of Ezra Silas! I love his name and I can't wait to meet him!
