Ah, now that the molars are out, the ear infection is G.O.N.E. GONE. I have to tell you that this week has been a bit on the rough side. Ok, not really "rough" per say but a bit choppy in the sleep department. Seems as though these molars were really bugging the crap out of Ian. We were holding our breath & praying it wasn't still an ear infection and today's visit w/ Dr. N confirmed that it was indeed those pesky molars.
Ian's ears are crystal clear! His bottom right molar came through yesterday & the left side is coming through as we speak. No wonder the boy has been waking up a couple of times a night. Bleh. Molars are for the birds. Luckily for us, he would go back to sleep. Ian is one of those kids. If you go in there, pick him up, get him to stop crying, it won't matter b/c the minute you put him back in the crib, he will start to cry again. So, this week it has been our task to just go in & check on him & leave immediately after. We don't want to prolong the inevitable & the faster we can get out of there, the quicker he gets back to sleep.
I wanted to also share some news about the boy. He has been taking a step or 2 here & there. I don't think many others would think this such a big deal but for us it is a HUGE deal. He will actually let go of something & lung/step towards something. It is only 1 step but he is still attempting to move on his own feet! He still has a ways to go before he will be walking but this is a move in the right direction.
Can't forget that the boy has also gained 3/4 of a pound in 2 weeks & grew 1/4 of an inch! I've been working on getting some weight on this boy. He is now 22 lb 3 oz. WOOT!
Here are some pics from the kids eating. Yes, they had a piece of an oreo cookie. Yes, it was messy. Yes, I will think twice about giving it to them again b/c it got all over their clothes.
