The Pink Stuff

Last week wasn't that great. The house has been full of coughs, crabby people, congestion, and runny noses.

On Tuesday Alden was very crabby. At dinner time he started screaming that his ears hurt. So Mom left me with Miss Shannon and took him to the after-hours pediatrician. I heard that he cried and fussed the whole time he was in the waiting room. The office stuff was chuckling about it.

He was diagnosed with an ear infection and sent to the pharmacy to get some pink syrupy stuff.

On Wednesday Mom and I went to UNC. They had me be a part of a hearing study to see how infants learn in the presence of distractions. It started out ok, but then I got fussy. Mom fed me and they tried again, but I had enough of that sound booth. We left but we have another appointment soon. I got my first paycheck out of it, a whole $15!

On Friday I had a fever and I threw up again. I have been throwing up about every 3 days. I also had a rattle when I breathed. So away I went to the doctor. I was diagnosed with a double ear infection. So I got my own bottle of pink syrupy stuff.  The good news is none of the congestion was in my lungs.

I think the pharmacist thinks Mom likes him!

Alden is doing a lot better now. I'm better too, but I still have my runny nose.

I am looking forward to kicking this cold for good!

Our new BFF.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
