Luckily, Charlie and Lily both seem to handle their illnesses very well. Even though he's not eating much and has some trouble sleeping, Charlie remains his happy, easy going self. And Lily is still our active, silly girl - I really would have had no idea she had an ear infection if the doctor hadn't told me. We're hoping that the cough and congestion goes away quickly!
Just like last time, Lily thoroughly enjoys the nebulizer. Here she is chilling with Daddy and Roy while getting her bedtime treatment.
"Okay, Lily, you're right. This isn't so bad! Hi, Mommy!""On second thought, this isn't any fun! Get it off, Daddy!"
Even when he doesn't sleep much during the night, Charlie is still a happy boy come morning.
Lily was lucky enough to inherit a humongous summer wardrobe from the twin daughters of my friend Daniela, which I've been sorting for the last week or so. Included with the clothes were a bunch of sun hats that Lily enjoyed modeling for us.
Charlie getting in a cuddle with Daddy before he leaves for work. There are benefits to being an early riser like our Charlie!
Look out! There's a giant bug bent on destruction! No play mat is safe.
The other day my friend Colleen pointed out that once a baby reaches a certain weight the mattress portion of the pack n' play needs to be lowered. I don't know why this never occurred to me, but she was of course correct and I quickly lowered the mattress down to the ground, creating a playpen type structure (thank you Colleen, for saving us from type of horrible pack n' play disaster!). As you can see, the babies can now see out of the mesh sides. Or, in Lily's case, can smash their faces up against the mesh and lick it. Isn't she classy?
