Little Trooper

Ginny's had kind of a rough go of it the past few months. Shall I just list of few of her troubles?
1. Right before Christmas she got a bad flu followed by a very bad cold. The flu threw her digestive track for a loop and she still isn't able to get back to solid foods. Her insides think about it, then send the food right back.
2. Her two bottom teeth broke through.
3. Some kind of upper respiratory infection went through our kids. The older two weathered it just fine but Ginny got an ear infection and the beginnings of pneumonia.
4. The antibiotics for the ear infection leave her with a pretty nasty diaper rash.

So our poor little Ginny is constantly having medicine shoved into her mouth. Besides the prevacid and axid for her reflux, there's the antibiotics and ibuprofen and tylenol.
The great thing about Ginny is she smiles through all of it. We may hear a wimper when the ibuprofen wears off, but about 99% of the time, she's still giggles and grins.
What a great baby.

Silly Puddy Woes

"My head is stuck to my pillow!"
Not something you want to hear at 3:00 am.
Poor little Ethan fell asleep with silly puddy in is hand. In the night it transferred to his pillow, and then with the turning over that happens in sleep, spread to three different parts of his hair.
Thank heavens for google. Olive oil left to sit for a minute helped to break it down enough to be encouraged out with a comb. There were some tears and some cries of "just use scissors!" but it came out in the end.
I pulled out a hot wheels car that I had stashed away and gave it to him for being brave and we both went back to bed feeling like champions.
