6 Months

Amaya is now 6 months old!!  Holy cow!!!  Everyday it seems like she gets bigger and bigger.  She had a couple good colds during her fifth month, one leading us to her ped for a sick visit.  She is still an excellent nurser and takes bottles really well at day care.  I still plan on nursing as long as I can since it is going so well.  Maybe when her teeth actually come in I will start weaning...

Amaya loves solids!  She was getting bored with her oatmeal so we moved to veggies and fruit.  She loved sweet potatoes and bananas and tolerated zucchini and squash.  Soon we'll be trying apples, peas, and green beans.  She is still only once a day during dinner time, but soon I will be doing twice a day.

She is getting more active all around.  She is becoming such a husband is insisting she is saying dadda.  She also kind of stopped that growling thing she did.  Amaya loves to be on her feet standing, bouncing, or jumping.  She's also trying to crawl, but not going anywhere.  Her legs move, but she puts her arms out to her sides.  She loves, loves, loves bath time.  Now, she's kicking up a storm and splashing all over the place.

Right after Christmas, we bought her a ton of books.  She loves to be read to, especially her princess book she got for Christmas.  She still loves Elmo and Spongebob.  There isn't too much that she hates really.

I'll have to post a pic when I get home from work and from the computer.  Having figured it out from the iPad yet

Good news!  No pink eye, but she has a bad sinus infection/head cold at least there is not a fever.  I'm going to go into too much information here.  The mucous is so backed up it is in her tear ducts and ears.  It is even coming out of her eyes.  My poor girls eyes and face are soo puffy.  I can see how it got confused with pink eye, but the whites of her eyes weren't pink.  Our ped gave us antibiotic drops just in case.  He wants the infection to run its course for at least another day or two, keep her eyes clean with a warm compress, aspirate her nose, and use a humidifier at night.  If she gets a fever, ear pain, pain in general,  or her eye turns pink then we fill the drops and call him back for another appointment.  She's allowed back into day care, but I feel she should stay home and rest for a day maybe two.

Our First Sick Visit

I had a feeling that I would get a call from day care today, but I was praying I wouldn't.  Amaya's eyes have been a bit puffy since yesterday.  We put it in the back of our head that he might have pink eye, but was hoping that she just had a bad head cold.  Well today day care called and told me she had to be picked up.  My little bug couldn't even open her eyes.  So we have a date with the ped at 3:20 this afternoon.  I'm extremely curious as to how much I'm going to pay for this since my insurance plan change drastically.  We need to pay our deductible first before  100% coverage for any non preventative appointments.  So much for no sick visits.  Tis the season I guess, and I'm thankful that it's nothing serious.  So since I have the afternoon off, I've been cleaning up my messy house, getting the dishes done, figured out dinner, stripped everything that came into contact with her AND her face, and wiped down her exersaucer.  Now all I need to do is find care for the next couple of days...
