Happy Memorial Day

We spent the long weekend in Rochester with my parents. Saturday we went to a Rochester Ravens soccer game, Sunday was the Museum and Science Center and Monday was the Seneca Park Zoo. Aubrie loved every minute of it...right up until we left Daddy in Rochester to head back to Albany. Daryl had a conference in Rochester on Tuesday and Wednesday so he stayed behind. Aubrie is currently in an 'I only like Daddy' phase and she was quite upset with mean mommy who left daddy behind.

We have been having a hell of a time with the kids allergies. We spend Saturday at the Strong Children's Hospital in Rochester after Aubrie had an allergic reaction to something in the car. We were traveling to Buffalo for a baby shower and Aubrie woke up from a nap with her right eye swollen shut and the right side of her face puffed up like a balloon. We are not sure what caused the reaction, but a strong dose of Benadryl seemed to help. We head back to the doctor Thrusday for a follow-up.

Tyler seems to be doing better now than when he was getting milk products, but he is not 100% yet either. Apparently babies who have milk protein allergies (which he has) tend to develop an aversion to soy also. We will now be trying Nutramagin which is made specifically for kids with casein allergies. The first feeding did not go so well, but there is hope. Our next option is prescription formula...I do not what to have to go there because it can get rather pricey.

Other than the allergies, Tyler is doing well. He is not in the 3rd percentile for wight at 17 lbs and 33rd for length. He has 4 teeth, all cut in the last week or so and we are working on crawling...mainly backwards.

Weekend Update

It has been a few weeks since we posted...a few random updates:

Tyler has cut his first four teeth in the span of about 5 days and he not very happy about it, but he loves his Cars graham crackers.

Aubrie's preschool class had a Mother's Day Tea Party and Concert.
Aubrie and Daddy planted her garden in the back yard...Aubrie chose melon, beans, squash, carrots, corn, peppers, pumpkins and sunflowers to plant.

We also went to the Tulip Festival again this year. Tyler was more interested in the grass than the tulips.
