Off to the Doctor we go...

Today I took the little men to the peditrician. Yes, another cold. We were due for our second dose of the flu vaccine last week and our peditirician had run out. So they sent us to Public Health. After two hours of waiting with people that sounded and looked like they had to have either the flu or H1NI we got the flu shot...and the four of us are now sick...AGAIN. And yes I am very ANGRY and yes our peditrician DID get an ear full at today's appointment. After a weekend of watching Kel tug at his ear I made an appointment. No ear infection, no major conjestion just a cold. But the doctor did drop a bomb on me...kiddos this age will get 6-10 colds a year. WHAT?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!! Aaron and I will have to get HazMat suits because we can not handle catching a cold from them 6-10 times a year. But we did do a weight check! I was super excited because this was the first time Kellen was in the same pound mark as Paxton! He finally caught up after his late start...

Kellen: 22lbs3oz
Paxton: 22lb13oz

Who needs to lift weights when they have quarter pounders for kids?!!!!

And sorry no pictures were taken this weekend. Aaron and I felt so bad we were good just to get them fed this weekend!!!

Mine got a lot of colds at that age too. BACK TO BACK. HORRIBLE. I just pray that this cold/flu season is not bad because I hate seeing them sick and I hate getting sick from them! Hope everyone feels better soon!!!

Ohhh so sorry to hear the trouble you went through (and still suffering)to get the second shot. We are due to get the second dose at the begining of Dec and they better not run out. It's true... the second winter for babies are the worst! They are building the immune system though and the next one should be much better. Get well soon~ Yeah, Sean has autism. We got the diagnosis in Aug and he goes to a special ed preschool. I felt down for a while but now I am determined to beat it as much as possible. Take care~
