Here we go again! Rae is sick for the third time in three months. I am starting to think my kid has the weakest immune system known to man! It all started with a runny nose last Wednesday, and has escalated into fever, vomiting, and diarrhea for the last two days. Help! How can I keep my baby healthy?!?

p.s. I tried to add a beautiful picture of my sick princess but alas, blogger won't let me! Grrrr!

Happy Belated Easter!

Our family had such a good Easter and were able to spend time with both of our families. Rae had a ton of fun at her first Easter egg hunt. The egg she found made a great rattle.Here she is checking out the loot in her first Easter basket. She had a ton of fun things like pink tennis balls, a hat to wear to the pool, and a bunch of new books. Her favorite things were her new flower headband and the tags on her stuffed animals.Here she is ready to go to church and learn about the resurection in sunbeams. I loved her little Easter dress! This was my favorite Easter basket though. Who knew that a cranky baby could be a cute baby by putting her in a basket?!?

Lastly, but not least important, I made a Key Lime Pie tonight from scratch. I was TERRIFIED to taste it because it came out of the oven a pukey yellow color. It tasted just like they used to when we lived in Florida. I highly recommend to anyone who has never had Key Lime Pie to try it. It is super easy to make, and key limes are in season....

Doctor update

I took Rae to the doctor yesterday. We originally had made the appointment at her six month check, because she couldn't roll over. When I told him that she still couldn't roll over...or at least that I think it is more a matter of she hates rolling over...he told me that we had better be safe than sorry. We left the office with a referral to a pediatric neurologist and a prescription for antibiotics. (He thinks she originally had the flu, but the congestion went to her lungs and turned into a very mild case of pneumonia.) Now after a few doses of her new candy (antibiotics), she is almost back to her old temperament. Still a little cranky, but we are back to playing and giggling all day long!

Just so that I actually have to do it, I am announcing that I am going to finally post Easter pictures this weekend!

Rae has been sick since Saturday night and I am about to lose my mind! What do you do to stay sane when you have sick children?
