He can't Walk, but he can Climb

I know,  I'm not supposed to encourage them to climb UP the slide.

2 down, 1 to go.

!!!!!!!!!! WILLIAM IS POTTY TRAINED !!!!!!!!!!!!

About a month ago, I was dropping William off at nursery and one of the dads said "P is in underwear today, . . . "
And I said to myself, P is only like 3 days younger than William. If P can do it, so can he!! So we started the next Tuesday. That fist day, he had 3 accidents. The next day, zero accidents. He is even waking up dry most nights. (I will admit that I am not brave enough to put him in underwear at night.) He has had very few accidents (only when we are at other peoples homes) and I don't even have to remind him to go. He just goes. HOORAY!! This is an exciting time in our home!!

House of Sickies, round 2

So, about a week after my last post, I had to take Ollie back into see the doctor for yet another strep infection. At that time, I went ahead and got a culture too. William also had come down with a rash I'd never seen before, so I had the doctor look at that while we were in there. William had Hand Foot and Mouth. My strep culture came back negative, but Ollies came back positive. Philip went in the next day to get a culture. His rapid came back negative. The next day, he got a call at work saying his long strep test came back positive. (So this was ALL PHILIPS FAULT!!!!) Oliver finished that round of antibiotics on a Tuesday. Thursday he had his 15 month check up. There was a significant amount of fluid in his ears, and since he is behind in communication and gross motor skills, the doc suggested we see an ENT to see about tubes. (Other than that, he is a healthy happy little boy!) The following Tuesday, Ollie started acting miserable. Wednesday, he was running a fever, and had green goop just pouring from his eyes. So Thursday, we were back in to the doctor. This time he had a double ear infection AND an eye infection. He is almost done with this round of antibiotics, and then hopefully, cross your fingers and say a prayer, we won't have to take him back in until his 18 month check up.
