Today the girls had their first swim lessons. They did pretty well. Many were worried that Bill and I would not do well with the strictness of the teacher. But we handled it quite well. As a teacher myself, I know how it is to hold your students up to high standards. I was happy [...]
I was talking to my mom yesterday after Annie’s ordeal and she told me that I dehydrated easily as an infant as well. I knew that I did as an adult since I’ve required hospitalization three times since I’ve been married, once while in college (missed a final because of it), and several more times [...]
Just to provide some contrast for the picture below, here’s a picture of Annie taken a couple of days ago. Please note the bright eyes and alert countenance:
Well, Kimberly threw up about five more times since the last entry. She’s currently sleeping in her crib, but who knows how long that’ll last. For a repeat vomiter, she’s in awfully good spirits. The reason I’m blogging again tonight is because we just got a call from our family doctor, the aforementioned Paul Coulombe. [...]
Kimberly just threw up at least a bottle’s worth of formula, necessitating a complete change of her crib’s linens. Oh boy. She’s got whatever Annie’s got. I knew it was likely, but she had escaped it thus far.
It’s not a Bugaboo Frog stroller, but our new double jogging stroller is still one sweet ride. Now we have a big ol’ double stroller, two umbrella strollers, a single regular stroller, and a jogging stroller. For two girls.
To the right is our dear little Annie with a bandage covering up the tiny little hole where an IV was placed four hours earlier. The poor little snookems started throwing up out of the blue at 8:30 AM today. It started out as the normal—well, normal after the stomach flu last week—formula-based vomit but [...]
Kimberly is cutting her first tooth. Oddly enough it is the exact same one that Annie cut first. I think this may be why Kimberly has been so whiny lately. She has also started to have stranger anxiety. Whenever someone tries to touch her or pick her up she climbs up me. Annie is still [...]
Thirteen-pound baby born in Mexico—by c-section, mercifully.
Annie has been a busy little girl lately. She’s cut her first tooth, learned to sit up without support, and figured out how to sit herself up. The last achievement is done with an intervening step of propping herself up on her elbow, but it’s close enough. She’s also recovered from the stomach flu she [...]
Phew! Looks like we missed the top 10 with both girls’ names.
Last night, Annie was up quite a lot and rather fussy. We were perplexed because she’s normally quite a good sleeper—taking over champion status from Kimberly a few months ago. And then Sandi felt something sharp in her mouth this morning. Uh huh. And so it begins.
Yesterday, The Girls’ great-grandmother Brown passed away at the age of 82. I’m just glad that she lived long enough to get to know them: they’ll only know her from pictures and our related memories. I’m glad to have known her and especially glad that we got much closer these last few years. She was [...]
