The kids were pretty much horrible this weekend. Jake especially was just rather whiny & clingy, but they are one-year-olds, so occasional whining & misbehavior comes with the territory. Well, apparently there was more reason for it than that. We went to the pediatrician this morning for their 15-month well visit & were told that they both had double ear infections. Out of four little ears, we have four ouchy ones. Makes a little more sense now!
They have one dose of antibiotics in them, as well as some Tylenol, & seem to be improving already. Long naps are helping, too! Mallory's morning was particularly traumatic since she had to have lab work to check her iron levels, in addition to the four shots they both received. If you were anywhere in DFW today & heard a child screaming, it was most likely Mal. That girl does not do well with being poked & prodded!
We are especially grateful for Grammy today, who endured the super long & always adventurous trip to the pediatrician with us. Thank you!
Here's to happy babies on the horizon!
