have you or any of your kids ever had hives? well bug did. it was the scariest thing!

so here is what happened: she went to her school yesterday, had all the same foods she always has, didnt have any new craft supplies, no new environments etc. after we left school we got in the car and drove for 10 minutes to the store. we got out of the car and i noticed a rash on her back/shoulder area, i looked under her dress and saw another spot so since she got her 4 yr old shots yesterday my first thought was that she was having a reaction to the shots. so i got a little nervous and called the dr. we immediately got back in the car and drove to the closest dr office. by the time we got to the dr her back looked like this:

it took about 5 mins to go back to a room and about 10 to be seen, by the time the dr came in, her front and neck had spots everywhere and it was moving to her face!

i was freaking out! the nurse kept reassuring me that it was just hives and it was fine. but seriously this thing was spreading like kudzu in the summer!

turns out it was just hives, they dont know what caused them but once they gave her benadryl she was fine. she has broken out 4 more times since yesterday. the medicine helps.

ahhhh parenting

a few thoughts

just wanted to write down a few things about buddy so i can remember:

*buddy weights 15 lbs and he is exactly 2 months old today
*he slept 6.5 hours today and did not eat at all during that time, that is a BIG deal for little fatty!
*he is smiling and laughing
*he loves to tap naps at the pool when bug takes her swimming lessons, when in doubt take him to the pool and he is happy
*he continues to be really mellow, he will let me put him down to sleep at night when he is just drowsy - like you are "supposed" to do - and will just hang out and try to find his thumb until he falls asleep --- bug on the other hand would freak out and cry cry cry, he will just hang out by himself on the couch for hours
*still is breastfeeding and formula feeding, doesn't care where the food comes from, he just loves to eat, hence the 15 lbs
*he does not love the paci, he will only tolerate it when he is really tired and you are holding him on your chest. when he is tired he likes to be held with the paci against your chest with a blanket around his back and over his head. perfect recipe for night night

thats all for now :)

laugh or go crazy

i am sure i am not alone in the experience of both or all of your children crying/screaming at the same time.

bug has a this new thing she does when she is tired, if buddy cries and she is tired she will cry too. but not only will she cry she will scream and pitch a fit. here is a picture i took of both kids the other day when they were both having a melt down. i had to just laugh or i was going to go crazy.
