Time for an update

When Mitchell visited the doctor's office on December 12th, he was 14 pounds 8 ounces. We just went back there on Christmas eve (12 days later in case you can't do the math) and he was 15 pounds 3 ounces! A big boy for sure! His pediatrician said he's got Viral Bronchitis which just royally sucks. We've been giving him Albuterol 3 times a day to help open up his airways and clear loosen up congestion to help prevent it from moving down to his lungs and turning into pneumonia. Just updating on his milestones here - he is just about rolling over, he's got to learn how to get over that one arm. He's getting himself around on the ground - sideways, backwards and in circles..... His favorite new toy he got was from Santa Claus - his exersaucer. And his new found favorite pasttime?? Watching football games (the t.v. FASCINATES him). He thoroughly enjoyed watching the Patriots complete their perfect season last night. On December 28th, he hit the 4 month mark. That night we fed him a little bit of Single Grain Rice Cereal. The first few bites were pretty interesting for him but he was done with it after that. He still isn't sleeping well at night. I think it's because he needs to be in a crib where he can stretch out... he really seems to be outgrowing the bassinet. (which is just crazy because our bassinet is huge!) And on that note - for Christmas, all the clothes we got for him were 6/9 months, besides one outfit. I love them, but was thinking to myself that it'd be awhile before he got a chance to wear them. I'm taking back that thought. I grabbed some 6/9 months pj's he got just because they were within arm's reach, and it was dark, and I was tired. Well Shuckey darn! They aren't so big after all! Why I'm surprised when daddy is 6' 6" tall - who knows.

As for the older kids - Andrew has had some type of flu/food poisioning/I-don't-know-what twice in the last week. Once on the 24th and once on the 29th. He spends the first half of the day vomiting and second half pigging out. I don't know what's going on with that kid! I just hope today is not a vomit day. He's spent a big chunk of his Christmas vacation playing Chutes and Ladders and pretending to be a rockstar with his new guitar (he does it pretty well!) Kaitlynn is the only one that hasn't been sick, she's also the only one that got her flu shot, so maybe that has something to do with it.. who knows. She rides her new bike sooooo well. So proud of her! We're taking it outside today (finally!) after breakfast to let her ride around.

That's all that's going on for us right now. Cory goes back to work on the second and we're headed back home tomorrow to drop off his dad at LAX. We're going to stay the night there for my sister's NYE party, and make the trek back home on the first. Then it's organize, organize, organize!!!!
