Just an update on a few loose ends and some new ends... or whatever.
Bro. Still has eczema. Was given a steroid cream to put on it. We think that he might have a milk allergy (for several reasons - one being that he throws up ONLY after he has a bottle of milk). So, he is going to be tested for a milk allergy, which, but the way, could have caused this eczema to flare up, apparently. Also, he is taking antibiotics for his ear infection. Thus, giving antibiotics to him is like giving antibiotics to a greased pig = not very fun or easy!
Lulu. Is no longer a thumb sucker. Stage 1 of her orthodontic treatments is to (1) expand her palate and (2) keep her from sucking her thumb. So, they put an appliance in the roof of her mouth that will prevent her from sucking her thumb and will expand her palate. Fun.
Lulu. Is taking part in a scavenger hunt this summer. The hunt is offered by her orthodontist's office. She has to take pictures of herself, in her orthodontist t-shirt, with certain objects/people/places. Here is a slide show from last year's third place winner; it is worth the look. Now you see what we have to look forward to. Wish us luck!
Napmom. Has finally saved up the money for her new camera and will, apparently, be taking pics of Lulu in her ortho shirt all summer long.
Lulu. Was chosen to go on the boat cruise that takes a select few oyster gardeners out to the Chesapeake Bay to watch the oysters being added to the reefs. She is very excited about this trip.
The family (including the Grandparents). Had a fabulous Mother's Day. Someday I will have pictures to show you. (ahem - Fairy Grandmother).
The family (including the grandparents). Planted our first letterbox in a nearby park. Cool! (pics to arrive soon - ahem - Fairy Grandmother).
Dear husband. Is still cheering on the Capitals hockey team as they compete for the Winston Cup (at least, I think that is what that trophy is called).
