Wow, maylea moon! That is really cool that Rowan has the measles! I've been reading more about the MMR (thinking I won't do it with Cis) and it's not always easy for kids to get exposed now with everyone vaccinated, but it's important they do for immunity. So, sorry you have a sick kid, but it sounds like he's doing okay and how amazing that he has the measles!
As far as the antibiotics, he will develop natural immunity even if he has a round of antibiotics BUT if he's not super sick, I think the drops and echinachea should be okay. I've only done antibiotics after 1) Cecilia's ear drum ruptured (yes, I felt like a terrible mom and 2) when she had a really crazy fever (although I think I panicked and should have let it be).
SO speaking of sick kids and antibiotics, quick everyone, tell me how many times your one year olds have taken them. And yes, I'll be jealous when you tell me never. Cecilia just finished hers up and she is NOT BETTER
I have now officially reached the 'I will try anything stage'. I have just eliminated dairy from our diets, thinking that is the next thing I can try. They say sometimes chronic ear things are related to an allergy. Although I never take antibiotics (I'm not sick much) I think they are okay when you need them but Cecilia has had ear problems off and on since JULY or something and medicine IS JUST NOT THE ANSWER. I'm so frusterated. I started highlighting Michael Schmitz's book 'Childhood Ear Infections' and I'm going to try a chiroquack.
Yes, Steph, the nursing signals are super cute! Cecilia assumes the position and starts pushing at my shirt. Or she just starts trying to mouth my left boob through my shirt. We only nurse on one side, goofy huh. I wear a fakey on the right side to even them out. Now you guys probably have a great mental picture of me! lol!
Jill, how are you getting so much done?!!!!
Cute shoes, Becca! I am loving little kid shoes. I'm also glad you are feeling better.
I think I'll get a humidifier this weekend. Bed, Bath and Barf, as we call it is in town.
Anna, we need a report! How did your night go?
Savannah, I thought you had a good perspective on your MIL. Still sucks, though. You were a trooper to put up with it all. What a hard situation to be in.
Using the issue of same sex marriage is a huge diversion tactic to take people's minds away from what's really important, I believe. Instead of worrying about same sex marriages we should be worrying about if there will be people around to get married, or if we will just need to immediately ship them off to fight. Whoa, sorry to get heavy there.
Okay, Greg has once again taken Cecilia with him to do visiting this evening and completely forgotten about BEDTIME. Off to track them down. meg
