Wow. Just wow. SLOW news day, apparently.

We go back to the doctor this afternoon to check her ears and talk about where to go from here. I hope the infection has cleared up. And let's hope she's put on a few more pounds, too! With all the whipping cream I've been slipping into her food she's bound to be heavier.
And now, without further ado, here is a look at our beautiful baby girl at eleven months!

Sadie is SO lucky. Lucky she's the cutest thing to crawl the earth. Otherwise I would probably sell her to gypsies. She is still up for hours at night, screaming her fool head off, keeping us up and making us crazy. Sigh. She's been on the antibiotics for a week now, so the ear infection should be under control and shouldn't be causing her any more pain. I don't know what her problem is. But like I said, she's lucky she's so adorable. And that I have a conscience.
Anywho, Sadie is really close to walking and it is so cute to watch. She still has to hold on to something while she "walks" and lately she prefers the little push-car popcorn popper thing that we gave Ethan for his first birthday. I finally managed to capture it on our camera's video, so here it is for your viewing pleasure! (sorry it's kinda long)

We're aren't arguing that our pug, Jabba, is the smartest dog on the block. Lately though, we're increasingly sure he has become possessed. Over the last week, we've had highs in the upper thirties and low forties - very abnormal for this time of year. The last week we had this warm was in early October. Well, all that warm weather has brought with it some birds. Apparently Jabba cannot handle that. During my walk with him this morning, he found the cripping of half a dozen birds too distracting and wouldn't go the bathroom. The guy is far to use to the piercing silence of winter in New Hampshire. He doesn't have a six dollar hairbut and he isn't allergic to eggs but the dog definitely has problems.

Sadie is on her third ear infection since the end of November. Poor baby. She was up screaming for hours on end Saturday and Sunday nights so I took her in on Monday morning, as that was her only symptom the last time she had an ear infection. And lo and behold, her right ear was red and full of fluid. It is the same ear that keeps getting infected every time. And since she doesn't have any of the usual risk factors that might explain the frequent infections (day care, smoker in the house, she is breastfed), it seems there is something else going on in her ears. So the doctor who saw her mentioned the possibility of ear tubes and we are meeting with her regular doc on the 24th to discuss what to do next (and to check on her ear to make sure it's getting better). I am pretty much to the point now where I just want them to put the dumb things in if it means no more pain, antibiotics, and sleepless nights. On the plus side, when they weighed her at the appointment she was up to 18lbs, 7oz- almost 2 whole pounds heavier than she was at the beginning of January! And that also put her into the 25th percentile for weight- yay!!! I guess all that heavy cream I've been putting into her scrambled eggs is working...
I'll keep you posted on the tubes. Poor little Sadester!

Eww. I almost gagged when I read this. Seriously. This is a sign of the apocalypse.
