Today At Our House...

... Keziah is recovering from the flu:



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)


Today at our house... Silas got a bath to remedy a stinky baby neck.

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.

I like the idea for the post! Very informative and fun! My house would never be quite that interesting though! :)

Kim said...

Sounds like a good day at your house (minus the throwing up). Ernie is working on some home renos too - there are always little things that take lots of time! Oh, and our Benjamin is working on the wiping bum thing too in preparation for nursery school too! Fun times. I hope that you all have a good week.

Leanne said...

And we appreciate that you blogged :) Hopefully you got some of the things done that you wanted to get done! I'm also not really sure how the whole wiping bum thing will go at preschool this year... It's an interesting skill to have to teach, hey?

Fun post!

cute way to blog this post! glad Keziah's doing better. Alf has been wondering about the kitchen cabinets since we were there last when Silas was born (no cupboard doors), so we're looking forward to pictures!
CUTE pic of Silas (though he's definitely not in the "F" category of the FBI).
Thanks for blogging...NOW you can shower (well, if the kids let you!)

Wenona said...

Loved the layout of this post. So simple, yet so informative! Silas is a cutie pie and I sure hope the rest of you don't get what Keziah had. At least it was short lived and she seems better already!

Jamie,
I'm so glad to hear that somebody's baby besides mine is not on the 95th percentile... mine is on the 10th (or lower) and every other baby around here is about 10 times his size. Thanks for making my day :) Madison was much bigger than Hayden Is :)

I always find that if I expect too much to happen in a day, and it doesn't get done, I'm grumpy! And, even though you didn't get everything done that day, at least you blogged! One thing off the list... :)
