MaMa Called the Doctor

So, remember how Caleb had a runny nose and cough before we left for Florida, and he checked out just fine at the doctor? Well, the runny nose and cough have re-appeared along with white on his tongue. I called the pedi today, and they had me come in because they said his nose and cough should have gone completely away by now.  So off to the pedi we went this morning.

I was convinced that little man had thrush because he has never had white on his tongue before. The doc on the other hand is not completely convinced yet, and he told me to watch it to see if it thickens.  YUCK.  I hope it is nothing.  In the news of his nose and cough it has been diagnosed as a probable sinus infection, and we have been given our first round of antibiotics to take for 10 days to knock it out.  If that does not clear it up, then Caleb has to come in for allergy testing.

 I really hate that I do not know for sure what it is, and that the doctor is not positive either. I hate to give him antibiotics for a sinus infection, when it is really allergies, but that was the best course of action in the doctors eyes.  Caleb is acting fine and he does not seemed to be phased by whatever it is.  It will be interesting to see how he does with his medicine after he wakes up from his nap though. 

On another note this past weekend we went to Lex to get all the babies together. This is only the second time they have all been together and it was so much fun. Little Ashton is crawling everywhere, and Caleb and Jax are still just rolling around.  It was so cute to watch them play and interact. 

Caleb was obsessed with Ashton's Sophie. He played with this thing for over 45 minutes. I think the Easter Bunny may have to make a HARD $20 dollar teether purchase.  I mean really? Why is a teether so expensive, and why did my baby love it so much?

Caleb 7 months, Jaxson 5 months, Ashton 6 months
Caleb also has become a complete belly sleeper. Nothing I can do to change it.

If you haven't noticed Caleb's hair has really come in the past few months.  Just for giggles look how daddy styled it.

I hope they figure out whats going on with him soon. Poor kid.
Those pics of the kids are adorable. They are all so cute.
What is that teether your talking about? Do you get it at target or something?
