So Tym's rash has healed up nicely - thankfully! Her ear however is another story. The nurse called back Friday and said there was an infection and called in some pretty strong antibiotics for 10 days. Meag brought her in yesterday (given it was only 5 days since she started the drugs) and the ear canal is still full of debris and gross, and the hole is still in her ear drum. She came home with a note to not go swimming, so we can hopefully cancel swim class and put her in the next one.

I think the drugs are giving her insomnia at night. 3 of the last 5 nights she's woken up in the middle of the night and just been awake for at least 2 hours. Add that to a little boy who is going through some weird sleep thing and not settling very well.... The adults in the house are not getting much sleep! (Meag and Tym are still sleeping now since they were up for a couple hours last night).

I had Lake's 3 months pictures done on Monday - not nearly as good as Tym's (which we got done in Fredericton at the studio) but cute. It is AMAZING to see how alike they look! We were looking through Tym's album and saw Lake in pink on every page!

Tym is excited for Easter, it should be fun this year. She is growing so quickly it's crazy. She is such a trooper with all her infections lately. She didn't like the cream for her impetigo but stood still for it, and loves her antibiotics. She is learning how to work things to how she wants them which is interesting to watch. Some we let her get away, others not so much.

Lake is growing quickly. It's crazy to think he's almost 4 months old! He's a good baby during the day - I am getting used to his schedule (which is hard to adhere to with a 4 year old in the house). He hates the car - we took out the bucket seat on Sunday to see if he would like that a little bit better. So far he hasn't cried too hard in it, but time will tell. It sure is interesting not having the bucket to put him in while we are out and about. His sleeping at night still sucks. I am hoping he'll start sleeping for more than an hour or two soon.

He is rolling over! He can now roll from back to front. He did it 3 times yesterday.

He can stop growing anytime!
