a hot mess

A lot has happened since my last blog. Ramona had her first day of school, which was incredibly cute. There are so many cool thinks for Ramona to play with at school. She may have been the only kid who stayed focused on one thing for so long that her mom got bored. On the second day of class Ramona found coloring to be the best thing to do, she spent at least a half hour coloring. It was pretty cute, and I've saved her first marker drawing. I have pictures coming soon.

We also went to the Puyallup Fair with Esther and Sofia, which was an interesting experience. It was fun looking at the animals, but there wasn't too much stuff for the adults to do, so we just wandered around, ate, and enjoyed the sun. The kids got pretty wiped out though, as shown in the pictures.

We had a rough week this week. Ramona has been a little sick. Her nose was running and she was kind of grumpy. She also got all of us sick who she hung out with at the cabin last weekend (that would be Kim, Ben, Court, Charlie, Shannon, mom, and dad). Then she started getting a temperature, and sleeping more often. We just thought she was still pretty sick. Then, Friday night she had a few little bites of dad's peanut butter on toast. She has had peanut butter two times prior to this time, so we weren't worried. Plus, our doctor had said it was fine to give her peanut butter. Then, she rubbed peanut butter in her eye accidentally, and boom.......her whole face blew up. It was swollen (her eyes were almost shut), and she had red spots all over. So we went to the emergency room, where she was treated for an allergic reaction, and they also found out that she had an ear infection. Bummer. Justin and I find it odd that she is supposedly allergic to peanuts, since either of us have no allergies in our family, and she has had peanuts before (not to mention peanuts I ate while breastfeeding). So, we are going to an allergist this week, and we'll update you on her status.

Today we are going to our first Seahawks game ever. I get to sit in the box with Shannon, and Justin is sitting with Robb in their seats. Looking forward to it, and also looking forward to getting out of the house, because we haven't done too much of that in the last few days.

Oh Claire! I'm so sorry to hear about Ramona. I hope she feels better and keep me posted on your visit to the allergist. :-(

I am really sorry...I think there is nothing worse than a sick kid! Well, it's worse when you are sick too, so I am sorry about that. Good luck with the allergist. Cayson had an allergic reaction to penicillin after he'd been treated with it like 5 times before with no problems. Who's strange isn't it??!! GOOD LUCK!
