Well, the Pletcher girls are going downhill fast! :) This is not their weekend. It looks like Finley is indeed sick. She slept better last night, but has done nothing but sneeze and get her nose wiped all day. She even crashed on the floor this morning, asleep, which she never does! Mat looked over, and there she was - sleeping on the rug. Poor thing. All kids are down for a nap now, but not before an eventful morning!
Finley -well, we decided to give Cainan scrambled eggs this morning. He has really limited himself in breakfast choices - getting picker every day. He really just wants fruit, but he needs to gain weight, so it is a daily battle. Anyway, Finley saw these eggs and wanted some. She did love them. BUT - it looks like she is allergic to them. Sigh. I was really hoping she wasn't. For those of you who aren't aware, Arlington is allergic to eggs (and peanuts, penicillin and has a lactose intolerance!) We have not seen the same reaction out of Finley when she eats cake/baked goods like Arlington, but today - same thing. Face got all red from where ever the egg touched her. And then it got worse. She threw up the egg, and everything else she had eaten for breakfast. We weren't sure if it was because of the egg reaction or that she might have a stomach bug. We just gave her toast and water for lunch just to make sure, but she kept that down. She seemed to be feeling better before nap as well - happily playing. But this morning was rough for her.
Arlington - well that girl cannot have an uneventful day. Mat took her down to the lake behind our house to feed the fish. On their way back, he spotted a few hornets near our gate. He opened the gate and told Arlington to run in, but she just stood there. Well, one landed on her leg and - yep! Stung her. That probably hurt bad, and she started screaming. Mat brought her in and we put ice and baking soda on it, and she felt better. She lay on the couch for awhile and now is resting in her room. After her eye yesterday and this now, Mat has decided to take her for a treat when she gets up!
Cainan - he is the only one that is not injured or sick. But today he got his hair cut! We needed to get it cut for the helmet, and tomorrow there just isn't a lot of free time, so I took him this morning. He sat on my lap and he was a very good boy. I think the razor felt like a little massage! He never moved. He looks so different! We didn't shave him bald, but close. It is just little peach fuzz left now. Arlington isn't sure she likes it- says "it doesn't look like Cainan any more. He looks like Pap-pap". But he looks cute. Also, he is getting better and better at walking on his own. He will walk all the way across our carpet in our family room and can stand alone. AND he is starting to crawl a little better on the tile! And I taught him the sign for "all done". It is really helping at meal times that he knows a couple of signs. He doesn't seem as eager to yell for food. He knows his hand motions get him what he wants
Here are a few pictures.
