Survival, I think...

I finally have a few minutes to update so I'm going to try and squeeze it all in. These past few days have been a little nuts! This past Friday Pat got hurt playing soccer so we've had a little bit of an adjustment to deal with. His back has been very sore and he even had to go to the doctor to get an injection and some pain killers. He hasn't been able to pick the babies up or do most of the stuff that he usually does around here so we're trying to manage. He had to go back to work today too from winter break so it's even a little more nuts. On top of this Seamus is still teething. He has 3 now and is working hard on a forth so he's been extra cranky. They are all also fighting some sort of bug so we've had Seamus puking, Helena puking including twice this morning, and all three of them fussy since they have stuffy noses. Katie broke out into some sort of rash yesterday. I think she had an allergic reaction to a new blanket we used for floor time. I guess when we washed it a while ago we must have used a detergent that she's allergic to. This isn't the first time we've dealt with this so Pat was on the phone last night with the pediatrician's office trying to find out how much benadryll she could take now that she's up to almost 20 pounds. We also had an appointment last week with the craniofacial specialist. Seamus needs to have his repeat xray in April before our next appointment with her. Both he and Katie still have a while to go. She did some measurements and they are still showing improvement. Helena however gets to start being weaned off her helmet next month! They want us to do it gradually so she learns that she can't ram her head into things like she can with her helmet on. They all go for a refit at the end of the week so they have more room for their heads to grow. I have a feeling Katie is getting close to needing a new helmet soon. She's had the most changes to her noggin and is running out of room for expansion. The pictures are from our Valentines Day. (Seamus, Helena, Katie) Phew... I think that's it... Now time to try and eat some breakfast and get dressed before nap time ends!
