Lastly, this was moving week. Yes ladies and gents, we started the process of moving into our home on Friday. It started with the delivery of our belongings from the storage facility. Just looking at all the boxes that need to be unpacked gave me a stress headache. Marlie complained that our new house is too small. We went from this...to this:
|Former house: Dallas 2008-2012|
|New house: Oakland 2012-|
Toddler Log: 3 Years and 2 Weeks Old
Marlie is still being a pill and I am so exhausted from spending the last three weeks trying to stay three steps ahead of her tantrums. This may sound bad, but I am overjoyed that she is starting school on Tuesday so that she'll have a small army of teachers and classmates to give her round-the-clock attention.
She is sweet when she wants to be especially with her baby brother. She turned her headphones into a stethoscope and proceeded to give him a chest exam. Dr. Marlie then pronounced him in good health (little did she know what was to come at the end of the week). She is always singing to him particularly this one song her daddy made up about a baby in the window with no hair. She is really into doctors and firefighters. She spotted a fire truck outside the park and begged me to take her to see Fireman Sam (a British cartoon she is gaga for right now). She got to shake a fireman's hand and that's all she talked about for the rest of the week.
Baby Log: 21 Weeks Old
Desmond is now five months old! And to celebrate we spent fours hours in the ER in the wee hours of Saturday morning. He woke up around 10 pm the night before choking on vomit. We cleaned him up and I nursed him back to sleep. But he woke up a few minutes later, threw up again, and was gagging. I was afraid he was going to aspirate on his vomit so I called his pediatrician. He vomited twice more while I was on the phone so she instructed us to take him to the children's hospital. Of course he was just fine once we got there and was back to normal yesterday. It was probably a stomach bug, but the choking scared the beetle-juice out of us. I put him to sleep upright in his car seat.
In brighter news, he just started getting up on his hands and knees and looks ready to crawl! He can also sit up unsupported for a few seconds.
