She was fine yesterday morning and then after her nap I thought her eyes still looked very tired. She didn't want to get off the couch for the next hour and then I noticed that she felt warm. I gave her some tylenol which she promptly threw back up. The throwing up continued until about 10 pm. The one positive note is that she's learning to aim for the pail :P
Thankfully she seems to be doing much better today. No more throwing up throughout the night and she woke up hungry. She wolfed down her pancakes and turkey bacon at breakfast. She felt a bit warm yet before her nap but hopefully is on the mend. With the whole H1N1 scare, it's easy to be worried!
Today at our house... Erik is doing some much-awaited household improvements:
We re-did our ensuite bathroom many months ago and all that was left was to silicone the edge of the tub so we could use it again. We got in the habit of showering in the kids' shower as this small job was procrastinated. Thankfully we can have our shower back today!
We also finally got the hardware for our kitchen cupboards! Erik reno'd and painted our cupboard doors back in April and we've been living without handles since then. The new handles will look beautiful and I will enjoy not using my fingernails to pry open cupboards anymore. As I type, Erik is on his way to his job-site to pick up the tools he needs to finish this job. So, pictures of that will have to wait...
Today at our house... Micah is learning how to wipe his own bum (I keep warning him that they're not going to do it for him at preschool!), he's becoming a pro "dawdler" (how many times do you need to ask a 4 year old boy to do something before it'll actually get done??) and he continues to beat the pants of off me and Erik at Wii bowling. Fortunately I'm still better than him at golf! Not even Erik can match my best score :o)
He's really starting to look like his own little person!
Cute t-shirt from Granny:
Silas is almost 5 months, but I have yet to document his 4 month stats. He weighed in at 13 lbs, 5 oz on July 28. I don't remember his length, but he was in the 75th percentile for height and 25th for weight - long and skinny! He's now up to 14 and 1/2 lbs according to the scale at the health unit. I looked back and realized that Micah was already 15 lbs at 4 months even though he had a lower birth weight than Silas. It'll be interesting to see how they compare as they get older.
Today at our house... I am wishing for a nap but not sure when (or if) it's going to happen. I'd also like to go for a run. I'd also like to take a shower. Not sure if any of that will happen today, but hey - at least I blogged.
