Wow! I am SO out of the loop! I haven't been getting my alerts again
I've had so much going on with the twins lately that I haven't had time to do anything else!! The fussiness we were experiencing from Joslyn turned to be an ear infection! Chaz also had one. Neither showed the typical signs other than the fussiness. Once they were on the antibiotics things cleared up pretty quickly and the pwincess was back to herself...short-lived though! The antibiotics led to diarrhea. At first this wasn't bad because she didn't seem bothered by it but then last week she developed a NASTY diaper rash! We're still dealing with it now. She STILL has diarrhea which is making it extremely hard to fight off the rash and we're having to clean her poor little raw bum so often that she spends most her time crying now
. I spoke with our pediatrician and they said the diarrhea from the antibiotics should have left when she finished the meds so they are contributing it to a stomach virus and all we can do is wait for it to pass. Now, ask the average person and they tell you it's teething. Chaz also has loose stools but no rash and we're using ointments on him to prevent any. I don't know if it's teething or not, I just wish it would go away!! At this point I actually wouldn't mind just hte diarrhea if we could just get rid of this rash!
On another note, Chaz has been rolling to his stomach for 2 weeks now! He sleeps through the night on his stomach! We lay him on his back and he immediately rolls over. At first I wasn't really comfortable with it, but it was a losing battle and after the first couple nights of huvering over him, I'm ok with it now
. He's much more tolerant of tummy time now since he's putting himself on his tummy but sometimes he will cry immediately and other times he can hang out for 15 mins or so! I've only seen Jos roll over to her stomach once. I think she did it then just to show us she could if she wanted to...not to be out done by her brother
. Oh wait! She rolled over last night in her crib. I quickly put her back on her back though because her face was pressed into her mattress. I can't even remember why I went to check in on her in the first place but I was glad I did! She probably would have been fine, but you never know.
The pedi also told us to start solids at 6 months, but I walked by some rice cereal one day in the store and thought why not? lol Chaz is getting really good with eating with a spoon. I only give him about 1 tablespoon though and then finish with his normal bottle. Jos really isn't interested and we don't force her.
Tea, it appears that my boy is much more faster with the motor skills as well! He is just itching to walk! I swear he pushes and squirms to get off my lap sometimes as if he's going to get down and walk across the room
Kelly, Chaz's head appears to be getting much better! His face even looks a little slimmer and different now. Glad we didn't have to do the helment
Wondercat, you have to link to a photo you have on the web somewhere. For instance using Photo Bucket. Then enter the html code to show the photo. "[img]addressofphoto[/img]"
There were some other things you guys mentioned that I wanted to comment on but this is getting too long already
. So until next time...
