We have had a lot going on recently. We had a good vacation to Illinois. We missed seeing grandpa but we are so glad he is feeling better. We did a lot of fun things and saw a lot of family and friends. We even stopped at Niagra Falls on the way home.
Claire is still having problems with gaining weight. She stopped throwing up a few days ago when we switched her antibiotic. We're not sure if it is a coincience or not. We'll have to wait and see. She has been a happy baby recently and has the most gorgeous smile! Seeing her smile makes the 4 am feeding not feel as bad. She is getting really close to rolling over from her tummy to her back so we are keeping the camera handy and we try to record each tummy time just in case.
The most stress has been because of our sweet Jack. Wednesday at 3:30 am his pulse ox machine started to alarm. When we went to check on him he was blue, he wasn't breathing, and his heartrate was falling. We were so scared. We called 911 and we were able to get him breathing again. We spent the rest of the night in the ER with no answer as to why this happened. We think it was a seizure so we went to the neurologist on Friday. They think his episodes may be migraines so we are going to do a 24 hour EEG at home to see if there is any seizure activity. Then, Friday night, he had a small episode and afterwards his head was really sweaty. We took his temp and it was 96.5. Within an hour it had dropped to 93.7 despite being wrapped in blankets. We went back to the ER and they slowly warmed him up. He was stable and they admitted him. There were no issues after that so they sent us home. We've been taking his temp every half hour throughout the night. They have stayed up but he is sweaty. It is very strange and we'll be talking to his doctor about it in the morning.
Other than making us a nervous wreck, he is doing some pretty fun stuff. He has started wearing daddy's hat, eating like crazy, and signing "I love you". He is an amazing child and I am so lucky to be his momma.
Here are some of our recent pictures including some from vacation!
