Strep, Stripping, & Spitting Up

Strep: I am sick again! Drew stayed home yet again yesterday to take care of me and today Grandma Heidi came over to take care of the kids so I could rest. Thank you Heidi! I have strep throat- fever, chills, headache, earache, and sore throat. Thank goodness for antibiotics and probiotics! Unfortunately my house looks like a tornado came through and the kids are pretty much watching tv every waking minute. I am so ready to feel like myself again and to get back to a routine of some sort.

Stripping: Tay has been taking all of her clothes off for naps and bedtime. We don't even fight with her over it any more. If we hear her in her room struggling to take her shirt off (those tricky shirts), we just help her and then tuck her blanket around her and say good night. What will this crazy girl do next?

Spitting Up: Our sweet Ashton hasn't been able to escape the Hilton baby digestive woes. He isn't spitting up a ton but he has lots of tummy aches each day. Carter had severe digestive issues, including GERD so we have been on high alert with Ashton. I have ordered some gripe water which really helped Taylor's tummy issues and it will arrive early next week. Ashton will also have a spine adjustment on Monday to see if that helps (it helped Taylor). We already have some liquid Zantac for him just in case as well. Poor baby! I have started eliminating different foods from my diet and increasing other foods to help him. We hope he gets some relief soon.

Just reading this makes me feel tired for you! A new baby is difficult enough without sickness added onto it! Please feel better!

As for the stripping, Erica is in the same habit these days...though she often tries on multiple outfits before she decides on the ultimate "birthday suit!" No harm in a little freedom, right?
