we had to take alexis to the ent this week. she had one of her tubes out and one in her last doctor wanted to take the tubes out at the 2 year vmark. this doctor doesnt want to. alexis has a lot of fluid in her ear and the doctor suspects that removing the tube on the other side would cause that ear to collect fluid also. she perscribed a nasal spray for allergies. i am aways cautious when giving meds like this but her chronic runny nose is gone after only 3 days on the meds. the doctor is hoping this helps with the fluid and combined it with an antibiotic. she then did a blood draw to test her to see what she is allergic to. i really dont know how parents who have really sick kids handle seeing them poked and pin cushioned. it was the sadest thing to see alexis so stressed out and upset. she cried all the way home from enumclaw which is about a 30 minute drive. we find out in 2 weeks what this kid is allergic to and then can hopefully aviod it or at least treat her so that she feels better. oh the joys of children. next up is megan to the ent for her ears...that part daddy is going to help with since he had the samething.

Alexis and I were driving to a wedding reception last night and had to stop at the store for the gift.  I asked her what she thought we should get them and she said "we should get them baby clothes because they are going to have a baby now!"  I laughed, knowing the Mom of the bride I almost got a baby item to throw as a joke.  In the end I took the higher road and just did a cookie making kit.  I had seen a gift from another friend, super cute she had this chest that she put about 6 games in, so we bought cookie cutters, bowls and wooden spoon, baking pan, cookie mix and frosting so they can have a fun little night with some friends or by themselves.  I love gifts that give the newlyweds something fun to do outside of the bedroom!
