Olivia woke up Sunday morning with goopy eyes and a snotty nose. I realize now, I should not have taken her to the Y on Monday but hindsight is 20/20, right? Well, yesterday when she woke up from her nap, it was much worse. So I magically donned my cape, transformed into Pediatric Nurse Practitioner mode and rapidly diagnosed her with pink eye. Ok, well it wasn't quite all that dramatic but a post about pink eye is actually rather boring!
Anyway, I took her in yesterday afternoon and sure enough, I was right (and I patted myself on the back, or at least in my mind). Since she also has gunk (yes, that is an official medical term!) in her nose, the pediatrician is treating her with Amoxil.
I still managed to get some pictures of my two precious ones before our trip to the grocery store. I'm telling you, no fewer than 15 people today commented on how beautiful Olivia was. She is used to getting a lot of attention but today took the cake. I told Livie it must be hard work being so gorgeous but I wouldn't know anything about all that!! :) Even when she's sick, she's still beautiful!
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
