Grandkid pictures

This month was my father in law, Roy's birthday. Allison had the great idea, while all of her grandkids were in town to get pictures done of all of them as a gift. It was so sweet and fun to watch them take pictures and interact with each other. They all had a blast and the pictures turned out great.

They can't wait for grandchild number 9 to get here in July, and we can't wait for another niece or nephew! 

Sick Baby

About two weeks ago Chloe woke up from a nap with a fever of 102. We took her to the doctor the next day who thought she either had RSV or the flu. We kept an eye on her and tried giving her tamaflu, which just made her nauseous and throw up. That night we kept an eye on her temperature. She was so miserable. We checked her temperature around 12:30am and it had reached 104. We went to the ER and discovered it was indeed RSV.

This worried me since all I heard about RSV was that it hospitalized babies, turned into bronchiolitis and pneumonia, and in rare cases babies died from it. Turns out we caught it pretty quick, and since she is a typically healthy baby it didn't get that bad. Her oxygen was good enough that they let us leave. It took a few days before she felt better, but I was just so glad it didn't end up being as serious as it could have been. Once she was doing better, a rash broke out over her entire body and she was scratching like crazy. We went back into the doctor who said it looked like hives and it was most likely an allergy. We hadn't been giving her any medicine at that point though and hadn't given her any new food. No changes in our lotions or anything either. It went away and I'm guessing we will never know exactly what that was. Oh well, as long as she is happy and healthy now.

Grandpa is off to Scotland!

On Saturday we went to visit my parents. My dad left for Scotland Sunday morning for work and will be gone for a while. He will most likely be traveling back and forth between Colorado and Scotland throughout the year. We wanted to spend time with him before he had to leave. It was beautiful outside (especially for February), so we made sure to spend time soaking up the sun. 

Grandpa likes to spoil Chloe just a little, and gave her a few cookies, which she loved. 

Recently, Scott and I have been teaching Chloe how to share. We ask her to share, and without hesitation she hands over what ever we have (Lets see how long that one lasts haha). Of course, we share with her too. Well, she decided to share her cookies with my parents dog, Riley. 

Also, look who is standing up on her own now. She is doing so well. She will stand up for a good 30 seconds on her own. She might be walking before too long. Uh-oh, not sure I am ready for that!

We had a good time and will miss Grandpa a lot! I'm sure we will see him in a little while though! We love you Grandpa, be safe in Scotland!
