I titled this post for Luke. He is always smiling, but not today.
We had to take him back to the pediatrician this morning. He was doing better after seeing doctor on Saturday, but you know how babies are....in a SECOND they can get sick. He was so sweet this morning. He just laid his little head on our shoulder and closed his eyes. You could tell he did not feel well....all the while little Prentiss was "talking" wide-open. I think he is going to be so "nosey". He just laughed and cooed. Did I tell you he and Luke are "in love" with the ceiling fan?!! They will laugh and talk to the fan. It is just hilarious. Back to what I was saying.....Luke now weighs 15 lbs 4oz. We were told he has an ear infection. Prentiss was checked as well. He is congested and MD thought she would treat them both for ear infection. They are on Amoxicillin and neither one like the taste....YUCK! they say.
We also had to get a cool mist humidifier. The Nap Nanny has been a life saver because they both have been able to continue to sleep well. Since they are elevated they can still breath even though they are congested. MD also told us with ear infection babies will cry when you lie them flat because it increases pressure in their ears. Did not know that!
Taking them to the doctor was an all day deal. Loading, unloading, packing, unpacking...whew!! I now understand what I have always heard...babies are made for young people!! HA!!!!
I'll keep you posted on those sweet little fellows. Please continue to pray for them.
