Helluva weekend

At least everyone has now paid their dues. First it was Henry waking up in the middle of the night Friday, having vomited. Then the stomach flu made it's way to me and then on to JT. The only saving grace was that it was a 24-hourish kind of bug. Silas' cold was getting worse and worse and his sleeping patterns at night were terrible-- and confusing. I kept him home from daycare yesterday and got him in to the Doctor and he has ear infections in both ears. Henry has thus far escaped ear infections so i was baffled and a little sad that Silas ruined our perfect record-- and of course that he was feeling so rotten. He's had three doses of antibiotics now and it seems to really be helping. The worst part was that they had to hold him down and pull out lots of sticky ear wax in order to look in his ears and determine that he did have an infection.

Some how we managed to largely stay on track with our "potty-training bootcamp" for Henry. He did amazing, especially considering everyone was under the weather. He's in underwear all day both at daycare and home and stays dry as long as you both remind him to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes, and don't take "no" for an answer when he tells you he doesn't need to go (usually when he's involved in something a lot more fun!)

Not to sound ungrateful for your interest, but i'm swamped now with work so i haven't had a second to download pictures. I wanted to give you an update on where we stand and hopefully by the end of the week i'll have caught back up enough to get back on track-- just before i go out of town on another work-trip next week and throw things into chaos again!
