Happy(and healthy) Holidays!

I realize we're a little late on wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, so it's Happy Holidays instead. I've been bad about logging on with my computer, which is where all the pictures are. What fun is a post without super cute pictures?
Little Elvis had a very good Christmas, even though he wouldn't get too close to Santa. He needed Gram's support with the Home Depot Santa.
Baby Plum was always asleep around Santa, so he didn't get to visit this year, either. I understand the napping, he looks pretty snug, doesn't he?
Baby Plum had an ear infection in both ears the week before Christmas. Here we are at the doctor's office -- only an hour and a half wait this time.

I thought he just had a cold, and had no idea about the ear infections. He wasn't fussy, just wanted to feed a whole lot more (and as you can see, he already likes to feed a lot.) Poor little baby had a cough, though.

Little Elvis came home from his last day of pre-school before the break with pink eye in both eyes. At least I assume it was pink eye. The doctor's office didn't want us coming near their office, and just let me diagnose him. They called in the prescription, which really frustrated me. My BA in communication did not give me any expertise whatsoever in diagnosing pink eye in my baby.

At least they saw Baby Plum, because I would have been way off on that diagnosis.

Bob and I both battled sinus infections. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I sounded like Rachael Ray. Little Elvis kept telling me to stop whispering.

Thankfully we're all pretty much better now. I'm not nearly as husky voiced and all of my boys sound better as well.

Yuck on the ear infections, those are the worst. Hopefully it wasn't too awful since he wasn't displaying any obvious signs. Hope you all have a healthy and happy new year!

Poor babies-both of them! And I cannot believe your pediatrician wouldn't see LE. I've never heard of something so insane.

Hope everyone is better soon. And happy New Year!
