Slacker and 8 months

I’ve become a blog slacker lately.  Nothing is really going on, I guess that’s why.  Life is good and we are happy.

Sophs turned 8 months on the 10th.  We found out she was allergic to penicillin about 72 hours into her amoxicillin prescription.  That was pretty exciting.  She broke out in a rash, but definitely not the worst that I have ever seen.  So I wasn’t too worried about her.  It took about 24 hours to clear up after her last dose.  I guess its good that we know now.  And hopefully this ear infection is gone.  She still hasn’t started crawling yet, but I swear each day she gets closer.  She is almost constantly on her stomach these days and is a pro at getting there from a sitting position.  She has had a couple successful forward lunges, but nothing too noteworthy.  She is a master spinner on her belly and can get to almost everything she needs.  Her fussiness picked up again in the last 2 weeks.  I know its just cause I thought she was over it.  And her nights have taken a turn for the worse too.  Back to waking up twice although, I only respond on the later one which means she has been doing more crying.  Silly lady.  Either its the way I handle the night time with my kids or genetics cause these 2 babies of mine have not been the greatest of nighttime sleepers.  Whatever.  I’ve looked for teeth and seen nothing, but who knows. She loves to wave bye-bye, clap, give fives and kisses.  Still waiting to hear “mama” but not holding my breath about it since Jack was 18 months before he said anything mommy related!

We had the Crohn’s and Colitis walk a couple of weekends ago.  By a pure miracle, it was nice and warm that day.  Since then we have been living through cold, wet and rainy days.  We love this annual walk and hope someday there will be a cure for Crohn’s.

And I finally braved the zoo alone with my kids on another warm day we had.  It went awesome.  Jack was a champ at listening that day which is always the key.  I took two photos which show no parts of the zoo.  But I promise we were there.  And my best attempt and taking a group photo did not come out so great!

  1. I have been checking in on you guys! Nice to see those cute kiddies again. Crawling seems to be just around the corner. Good job Jack, Jack being a big boy at the zoo.

  2. Wow, I’m proud of you for doing the zoo by yourself. I tried to go get icecream just down the street the other day by myself…disastrous, to say the least. Ha ha, fun times. I’m sorry to hear about the night sleeping. But soon enough you’ll be sleeping all night long again.

  3. Been waiting for a blog post for quite some time Ame! HaHa j/k…but it is always good to see the cute kiddos! Miss you guys!
