Poison Oak seems to be taking over our family. Julia continued to have the rash spread over her body and she was so uncomfortable despite trying every home remedy under the sun that I finally took her to Urgent Care. The doctor said that she also has a staff infection so it was good that I brought her in. He gave her a steroid shot and prescribed twice the amount of Benadryl and an antibiotic for 10 days. She has such a bad case that he said she may end up coming back for yet another shot. If by the end of today she is not showing signs of improvement, we will go back to the doctor. John, Andrew, and Jonny still have it, though not as bad. I have now washed their shoes, we have cut nails, and they too are taking double the Benadryl amount. A few of the other kids have a spot here and there. Ugh.
As if things couldn't get worse, I decided to learn how to pogo stick. We bought a second one with a heavier weight tolerance so that John and I can use it. After numerous attempts, I was finally doing it. My record is 19 jumps!
Then I dismounted and pulled a calf muscle. I'm using crutches right now. Fun.
Hmmmm, maybe 37 is too old to be pogo sticking. But it sure is fun.
I gave Oliver a haircut.
He sure looks like a big boy.
Speaking of big, he has grown so much in the past month. I think he is up to 25 pounds.
Even though we have been given plenty of clothes for him, they just don't work. Every time we pick him up, his shirt goes up and when he crawls, his pants slide off.. Sooo, I had to go out and buy him some onesies.
He is way too short for the pants, but they do look cute on him!
Oliver is standing more and more. We are cheering him on. However, I am concerned that he may need ankle braces. This is the way he stands on his left foot. His ankle goes in and the bottom of his foot arches up. It doesn't look very comfortable. Is this normal?
