I could write a book filled with Wyatt''s daily adventures. His latest adventure resulted in some beautiful crayon art on his closet door. We were coloring, he moved onto a different activity, I forgot to put the crayons out of reach and just when I was finishing up Bethany''s feeding I realized that Wyatt was way too quiet. Found him in his room coloring on the door. I posted a picture of the artwork for all to enjoy. I also have to safety pin the zipper of his pajamas up before bed because he enjoys unzipping it and taking it off at night which is no good when our heat is set low at night. His vocabulary is starting to pick up really fast. Getting him dressed has become a wrestling match. He likes to make Bethany laugh and he pets her hair nicely. He enjoys sitting in my lap and looking at pictures of our family members and horses on the laptop. He calls out names and is really excited each time a familiar face comes up. When he sees pictures of me he doesn''t say "mama" or get excited though. Bummer!
Poor Bethany has not been well. She screams almost the entire day and nothing we do can comfort her. Sometimes all we can do is hold her while she''s crying and be with her when she hurts. Thankfully, the doctor was able to get us in on Thursday. Her eyes were really puffy and her diaper tested positive for blood so I''m back to not eating dairy. I had added it back in awhile ago and she seemed fine and her diapers were testing ok so I increased the amount of dairy last week and now this happened. She has an intolerance to that plus a few other things and it causes her tummy and intestines to be very irritated. The pediatrician that we see went through this exact thing with her kids too and has been extremely helpful with giving me loads of allergy information and websites. She gave me my own kits to test the diapers so that I don''t have to keep coming back in. I test a diaper tomorrow and hopefully the elimination of dairy again will make Bethany well again. Since her diapers tested fine for a month, I''m optimistic that they will again. Other than the digestive woes, Bethany is doing great. She is staying in her percentile curves so she''s growing well. She can reach for toys and put them in her mouth. She can also sit up for a longer time before falling over.
I added mostly cell phone pictures this time because we were out of camera batteries and were holding out for our Sams Club trip yesterday to buy more.
