Everett's First Visitor

Auntie Katie came to visit Everett today, and it was his first official visitor!  It was so fun having her over and getting some "boy" advice. ;)  She's a good resource since she has two boys!  It seems weird that he is 3 weeks old and had his first visitor today, but he's only been home for a week.  He has quickly met some friends that have dropped off dinner too (btw, thank you so much Jen, Molly, Sarah & Tenille for dinners this week- it has been SO nice not having to eat cereal for dinner every night!!!).

We're still surviving over here.  So far, Everett has been a much easier baby than Ella.  He sleeps all.the.time.  No signs of reflux yet, and he doesn't make a peep overnight (as opposed to Ella's screaming for hours) except at 3 a.m. when he wants some food- it's crazy, he's REALLY on the 3 hour schedule.  We were setting our alarms to make sure we didn't skip a feed since he's still so tiny, but now he pretty much wakes up at 3 or 3.5 hours on the dot so he's our human alarm.  If he remains this easygoing, I may consider having a third child...JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!

Poor Ella is not doing as well as Everett.  We found out she has her first ear infection!  She never complains so I had no idea and felt like such a bad mommy.  I have to admit, I'm happy it's a non-contagious ear infection rather than croup or something, but I do feel horrible that she feels bad.  The doctor said we need to suction her nose because that is dripping into her throat and causing her cough.  This poor kid.  She is now on antibiotics, which I hear works really fast for ear infections so I'm expecting her to be almost 100% by tomorrow.  We *finally* have a playdate planned with all her besties on Friday so I'm happy we caught this early in the week so she'll be in good spirits for her friends, who she constantly asks for.  Well, she's been in good spirits anyway, but she'll also feel good. :)

  1. So glad to hear Everett is doing well! Poor sweet Ella, I just wanted to pass on that the Nosefrieda brand snot sucker (sold at Wholefoods at the District) is AWESOME. F used to scream bloody murder but since it works so well, she doesn't mind anymore when I come after her with it. I think it's $16.
