Drama Queen

Addie wanted to be the center of attention this morning. I was trying to take pictures of Lily's new pants that I knit, but Addie insisted on being in every picture.

I guess you really can't blame the girl. She's still not feeling super well. I got a call from the doctor this morning that not only did Addie's strep culture come back positive, her flu culture grew influenza B. Yahoo. She's got a double dose of yucky germs incubating in that little body! No wonder she doesn't have much appetite and she just wants to lay on the couch and watch Enchanted. Poor kid!

When It Rains, It Pours

I'm taking the sick little kiddo into the clinic for the 3rd time this week. This time for labs, a chest x-ray and another dr. visit. She's been running a temp steadily for 6 days. Today she was very whiny and clingy. She's been a trooper up until now but I think it's beginning to wear on her too.

Birthday Girl

Lily turned 2 on Saturday. We celebrated by having a ton of friends over for a party. The kids colored some cute little wooden ornaments and played with all of our toys. Then we did an Easter Egg hunt that was a HUGE hit with the kids. I couldn't believe how fast they picked up those eggs! I wish we could have done it outside, but the weather was a little crummy and we still have a bunch of snow on the ground. Instead we did it in the dining room.

Everyone enjoyed the pizza and cake. Grandma Argh made the cute bunny cake. Mmmm... Lily liked it so much, she had 2 pieces!
In other Lily news, she had her 2 year check-up on Monday. Lily weighs 23 lbs - that puts her into the 10% Club! Yahoo, Lily! Also, her pediatrician and I talked about retesting Lily for her milk allergy. I am positive from the reactions I have seen (we've had a couple of accidental milk ingestions) that Lily is still allergic to milk. I didn't see any reason to draw blood unless we absolutely had to. Lily's pediatrician agreed. We'll probably test her on her 3rd year check up. Until then, it's nuthin' but soy for this little girl.

Photo Shoot

When my Mom was here a few weeks ago she dressed up Addie and we took some pictures. It seems to be a bit of a family trend to take pictures of little girls dressed up in their pretty clothes. We have a picture of Grandma Betty and her mother, my Great Grandma Dory, dressed in costumes similar to this.

Keep Grandma in Your Thoughts

I wanted to let you know that I will probably be out of contact for awhile. My grandmother passed away last night. She would have been 89 years old tomorrow. This is a photo of 4 generations of Falk women; my grandmother, my mother, myself and Addie at 9 months. It was taken almost exactly 3 years ago.

Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
