I have been slacking...

Madison had a rough week! All week she just hasn't been acting like herself. She was crabby and a little fever-ish (if that's a word). We just blamed it on teething. I even put oral gel on her "teeth" coming in and gave her tylenol. Thursday night, Madison vomited out of no where. Friday night she was up every 10 minutes SCREAMING. It was horrible for all of us! First thing yesterday I brought her into her doctor. We got an unexpected diagnosis...Baby Measles!!! WHAT!? I was so suprised and confused...what is it? did she get it? He said it's pretty common and not the kind of measles that they get vaccinated for. It is passed through saliva and is only catchy for children 2 and under. He said now that the rash started on her it's almost over. He didn't prescribe anything and just said to put calamine lotion on the rash and give her tylenol. So after an oatmeal bath, a dose of Tylenol, a dose of Benadryl and tons of calamine lotion, she is happy as can be!

Click on the pic for larger can kinda see her rash on her forehead.

Her hair is all spiked up from the lotion!

UPDATE 11:00 am:
The rash is over her entire body now...Poor baby!
Click on the pics to see the rash.

Madison loves her boyfriend in her playgroup...


Last week we had a nice visit with Chris's grandparents. Grandpa Joe just got back from a hospital/nursing home visit. He was very happy to be home and visiting with his great-grandbaby. Madison entertained everyone by rolling all over their living room floor and talking to herself!

Great Grandma Marilyn says I'm precious!

Madison was rubbing Great Grandpa Joe's chin and he was falling asleep!



Madison gives herself kisses in the mirror, it's so cute!

Look at how happy she is to see herself!

I'm glad to hear she's almost over the baby measles. I didn't even know those existed and assumed all measles were the ones they vaccinated for! I love the new look of the blog too. Very colorful I'm a huge fan. :-)

Have you hear how Nicole's little one is doing? Where did they end up moving too?

Hi Shannon, found your blog through other ♥ baby son is 15 months old and he had his TOF repair on Nov. 11 2008 too! (he was 8 months old to the day) Sounds like your baby girl is doing great...♥ babies are so tough! It's neat to know another baby was saved on this special day like our Dylan!
