Babies and Doctors

Last week I "got" to take the babies in to see the doctor for possible ear infections. First was Bryce's turn. He had a fever of 104, but no other symptoms-no signs of an ear infections. After talking with our doctor on the phone, he said if the fever stayed he needed to be seen. So I took him and and sure enough, he has an ear infection.

The next day Cayley and Aleah were both acting like they are suffering from an ear infection: pulling on ears, holding ears, and just down-right crabby. Take them in to see a different doctor. I will not state my true feelings about this doctor, but I have never seen these girls cry as long and as hard as they did when the doctor was examining them. And no ear infections, just crabby babies with colds.

And now is a perfect time to provide an update on their weights.
Bryce is our "Bruiser" as some relatives have referred to him. He weighed in at 25 pounds! That is two pounds heavier than Cayden was at this age!
Cayley , who was the peanut of the bunch at birth (by one ounce) weighed in at 19 pounds 8 ounces.
Aleah , who is now the peanut weighed in at 19 pounds .

The pictures are from the day after the girls' appointments. I gave all three a bath (at once!) and got them ready for bed-even though we still had to eat supper. I didn't know what to do with them as I was lotioning and dressing each baby so they all took turn hanging out in Brycie's crib. Here's some pics of all three (Cayley is on the left, Bryce in the middle, and Aleah is on the right).
