Almost One

I can’t believe Samantha is a week away from being 1. ONE! Where did the last year go? So much has happened during this time that you just get lost in all the changes.

So, what’s going on these days? Samantha is sick again. Her babysitter’s family got sick a few weeks ago and it spread into our house. I was going to try to let her get over it on her own, but today is 2 weeks. She had a 101 degree fever earlier this morning, so we’re going to the doctor this afternoon. Maybe she’ll be feeling better this weekend. Brian went to the doctor today too. He too can’t seem to get over this bug.

I finished my piano painting yesterday. I’ll post a picture soon. I like it. Brian says that the piano is dusty. You’ll see. I might go back and fix it, but I haven’t decided yet.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I feel like I should make this my blog since everybody else is doing it. 🙂 By the way, Lettie, I am now a Nester fan. I just wish I had the courage to start putting holes in my walls like she does (and not worry about patching them) and have an eye for cute fabric. I just don’t have that.
Anyway, let’s see what’s been going on the past few weeks. Samantha is sick *AGAIN*. She’s a true Daycare Kid. That means, you guessed it, Brian is sick AGAIN. Which means, I’ll be sick soon. We go back to the doctor this week to check up on her ear, but I have a feeling he’s going to tell us that she has another ear infection in the other ear. This time, she’s been pulling it. Mom said, “Maybe she has just found her ears.” I don’t think so. She’s been on antibiotics, but I don’t guess that matters.
For those of you that know my nephew, Jackson, you might remember his open mouth kisses. Samantha has started kissing just like that! It’s open mouth, tongue, wet and slobbery, but oh so sweet.

Six-month Check Up

Samantha is 6 months old today! Wow. She has moved over to the “big” kids side of the infant room at the daycare because she’s one of the oldest! It’s so hard to believe that she’s already that old. So, she had her 6 month check up yesterday. She still has a cold/cough, so the doctor was concerned about her ears. She does have a slight ear infection, so she’s on antibiotic now. Maybe she’ll be feeling better soon. And for the first time, she actually ran a fever today after her shots. Her teeth (or lack thereof) have really been bothering her lately, so maybe we’ll start seeing something. Oh yeah – she’s 16 lbs (55 percentile), and 26 1/2″ (75 percentile).
