I'm doing well, I just ate way too much bread, but it was soo good and I am such a carb addict.

I'll take some either tonight or tomorrow. Maybe I can get one of him standing without support.

Ion is too in love with his new toothbrush. Right now he's nursing in my lap holding it up near his eyes with one hand and flicking the bristles with the index finger of the other hand. He almost never puts it down. I've heard of 'lovies' but this is weird.

Cool, I'm debating getting Desmond one for either next holiday season or his birthday, since he loves to bang on the keys on my and DH's computers.

The baby just got scratched bad on the head by the dog. It didn't break the skin but there's a thick raised mark about 5 inches long!! He cried so hard he pooped. He's nursing and playing with his toothbrush again.....

Poor baby . I'm always afraid something like that will happen with the dog and the baby. The dog is normally really good with him, but sometimes he doesn't notice the baby in his way when he is going somewhere.

Yeah, he gets it with her tail sometimes and her tail is like a whip. She chews her nails so we have to get them ground by the groomer.

Poor babe, hope he's doing better. I freaked when our 100lb lab stepped on Scarlet in her bouncy seat, left a scratch around her eye. Thank goodness babies are so resilient.

I'm out of Christmas spirit tonight. Max has this way lately, of making dinner and the rest of the evening hell. Why don't they want to eat dinner?! At least his tantrum got him off to bed early tonight, and Scarlet is sleeping soundly, too.

Think I'll go read Gone with the Wind.

how'd you get that past the baby? I have to wait until Kam's home to eat naughty things by myself.

So, last night DH noticed that Scout felt a little warm around 8:30, but she was still playing fine, albeit a tiny bit cranky. Then at like 2:30 am, she cried and I laid down next to her to feed her, but she was really fighting it. We got up and walked around and I realized she was burning up. Her temp was 103.2 and has hovered there ever since. She vomitted once and does have a runny nose, but her chest sounds clear and the snot is clear in color. She is extremely cranky and there was a long stretch in the morning when I could not get her to nurse or take any water. I don't really want to, but I'm going to take her to the ped in about an hour. I have no idea what they'll prescribe...I don't even know if she NEEDS to see a doc, but me being a first time mom and all, I'm paranoid about letting something serious go without seeking help. I'm confused. :
I have just heard! I hope she is feeling better....I will have to keep reading for an update. (I guess this was why you were up with me at 4am yesterday...)

mclisa - hope your poor nipper heals very soon!

Wish me luck that I stand my ground and don't let them bully me or make me feel stupid for being the crazy lady who never takes her kid to the doctor.
I know you have probably already posted about this, but don't let them bring you down. I have decided not to go to WBV anymore either...I bought a baby/toddler scale so I can keep up with his weight, which was the only reason I was going in the first place. (Letting Micah fall of the table and trying to pull back his foreskin was the final straw...)

I am jealous....I am trying to loose my "baby weight" (I quit smoking, found out I was going to be a mom, found out I was going to be a single mom and lost my best friend all in a span of about 2 weeks -- I gained enough weight for 3 pregnancies), so no ice cream for me!! But I sure can dream :

I love that Axel has come up with a cute nickname for Banjo....Although, I really love Evangeline!
