Croup and Teeth

Belle has been teething for what seems like 2 months now and one of the bottom molars FILALLY broke through Sunday! She is still drooling like a maniac and working on the other 3. It will be fabulous to be done with the teething for a little while, but thank goodness for teething tablets! She loves those things! She tells me in the morning and at night "tablet! tablet!" Maybe that's a bad thing??? Hey... whatever works! Don't judge me! :)

The Princess has also been having a nasty cough the last 3 or 4 nights (sounds very much like a bark) so I thought it might be croup. I took her to the doctor today and sure enough, she has croup. She also has very swollen tonsils, but no strep. I have a feeling she is going to be a kid with her tonsils removed. The doctor comments on how big they are every single time we go in and he does a strep test every time because they are so big... Let's hope it doesn't go to tonsil removal. Good news is, she will be on steroids for 3 days and I can already tell that it's helping. She has been asleep for over an hour and no coughing! Hope it clears up soon!

Oh - also - she is now 32 lbs 6 oz! Growing like a weed!

Potty Training

We are officially Potty Training!

I picked Isabelle up from daycare Thursday the teacher told me that Ms. Dana wanted me to know that Isabelle told her she had to go poop and she put her on the potty and she went! What a big girl!!! Then, she went almost all day Friday on the potty at daycare and she went at home a few times this weekend and even went on the potty at IKEA! She is making it very easy on us! Half the time she has already gone when she tells us she has to go, but at least she knows the feeling now! I hope it really is as easy as it is starting out to be!

Paci update - all went fabulously until Thursday night, when apparently Miss Belle realized she didn't have a paci anymore and now she cries for anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours at naps and at bedtime... She is currently in her bed screaming "MAMA!!! I BROKED IT!" (she has a book in bed and I'm sure it is now in a million pieces).

Other updates - Belle has learned to blame the dogs... She came in from the sunroom today going "Elwood did it!" But I believe he really did do it because she was holding a broken acorn...

We still haven't gotten anything else done on the house. We have been too busy having people over or shopping for things we need to actually get any work done. We ALMOST got some furniture this weekend, but had to think on it last night... We decided we DO like it and will likely get it, but we didn't feel like spending another 3 hours driving there, ordering and driving back, so we didn't place the order. However, their "Labor Day Sale" is apparently not much of a sale... The last time we were in there, things were exactly the same price or lower than they were this weekend... we have the pictures to prove it!
