The pictures of the snow are just for you Andrew and Sammy!! Wish you were here to play in it with us! =) The picture of Zaylee....well it's just cause it's cute! (Please excuse her funny looking hairdo...that's my fault not hers....I'm not much into doing baby girl hair...I know, I'm a slacker mom!)

7 Months Today!!

So instead of a picture of Zaylee today you get to see what her 7 month birthday present from the doctor was! At the doctors office yesterday we found out that she has her first ear infection. The doctor almost didn't catch it at first because there was a lot of wax blocking his view but after a few minutes he said that he just didn't feel okay with letting her go without pulling the wax out and looking behind it. Luckily he did! He said she has a really bad ear infection and he decided he needed to take a double look just to make sure it wasn't going to burst because it looked so bad. So, he said, "no wonder she hasn't been feeling good!" and gave her an antibotic and some pain medication. He said she also has the cold/congestion junk that has been going around but she'll just have to fight that one off on her own. She hates the antibiotic and does everything she possibly can to spit it out--including gargling when I do get it back to the back of her throat and then spitting to make sure it gets more on me and her clothes than in her mouth. She's such a little smarty pants! =)

One other quick sidenote, we also found out that she weighs exactly 16 pounds. We didn't find out her height or percentiles but I'm sure it's pretty much around the same as 6 months.

Sick baby

Zaylee's not been feeling to swell the last couple of days and thus has been very, very needy...wanting to be held ALL the time. Well, I had to get reay to take her to the doctor today and she wouldn't let me put her down so I sat her on the sink for a minute to grab something and she found the faucet quite interesting so she slid down in and started playing and grabbing for whatever she could reach. She loved it! I thought you might enjoy as well! =)

Playing with Blocks

Howdy everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted so I figured today would be a great day to do so! Here is Alex and Zaylee playing with one of her new favorite toys....blocks. She normally is the one with the block in her mouth but this time Alex thought he would try to do the perfect impersonation of her--he did a pretty good job, at least I think so! The cute outfit she's sporting is from Christmas from Grandma Barlow and Aunt Steph. She looks so cute!! We love her new clothes! We are all doing great! We are loving Alex's new school schedule because we all get to be home together a little bit more, which I absolutely love! And stay tuned, I have another cute outfit to post a picture of her in so next time she wears it we'll be back! =)
