this week has been a busy week for the brown household. we've survived yet another round of the rotovirus. abbie was the first victim to fall and passed it on to paul and i was the last to get sick. i out smarted mr. roto this time and took a finagrin and managed to slither away with only a 24 hour fever. les walked away victoriously from this round with no ill effect.

in the middle of washing our sheets 30 times and cleaning up exploding diapers les's mom, lovingly known as gg, made a visit to dallas for the labor day weekend. abbie loves gg and keeps asking for her. while gg was here she tried to get me hooked on mary kaye by giving me a facial and fun free mary kaye products. if you see me wearing make-up in the upcoming future than you know she has succeeded in becoming my new pusher.

the last several weeks paul has been sporting the new fussy pant. i thought we had seen the last of pauly wally fussy pants when his top two teeth finally broke through last week. we even had some days that were back to normal before mr. roto decided to visit us for vacation. the last several days however have been brutal. he hasn't been sleeping and he just is not the laid back baby we know. last night it occured to me that something just wasn't right. all kinds of crazy things can happen when you think something is wrong with your baby. i bought some lactose free formula to see if he was suffering from temporary lactose intolerance from the stomach virus he had. i was going to take him to the dr. to see if he had an ear infection. then it occured to me that he might be suffering from some acid reflux. when he was an infant we thought he might be suffering from gerd since he was soo fussy. it didn't make since that he would start suffering from it again now, since as babies grow older they grow out of their gerd condition. then we realized he had been puking for a couple days and that could have irritated his esophagus and made the acid reflux come back. we've been keeping him off his back after he eats and it seems like it's doing the trick. he's more like the baby i know him to be today. whew!!! i thought i was never going to get another good night sleep again. here's hoping to a more laid back week and babies that sleep through the night.

I am so sorry. I didn't know that you got mr.roto. That would be very hard to take your kiddos.
Paul grow up everyday, and your happy time is coming. go go go ~~
