Poor Rosalie

She has her first ear infection. By the second day of antibiotics, she had a rash starting on her head and body. Since 2 of my boys react badly to amoxicillin, the dr said to take her off the medicine and treat her for the pain with tylenol. She will either fight it off her self or the ear drum will rupture. Either one will make her feel better.

On the up side, she is 12 pounds even now, as of Friday. So at 21 weeks, she has gained 5 pounds, 12 ounces over her birth weight. My oldest son weighed this much when he was 2 weeks old. :)

She is finally big enough that I feel like I am holding one of my babies. The others were so much bigger at birth. She started the real smiles recently.

It has been crazy recently. Between the trips back and forth to Pennsylvania to meet my BIL and drop off/pick up her siblings, #1 has gotten plenty of interstate driving practice.

School starts in 3 weeks? We have so much to do to get everyone organised before then. I would at least like to get the clothes all washed/dried/sorted once before school starts. After the next sock matching party, I'm going to throw out all the odd ones. An entire 1 bushel basket of unmatched socks is too many.
