Today marks one year since Gabbie came home from the hospital. Greta was so scared that she slept on the hardwood floors next to the crib so she could hear every breath. I remember being so terrified of bringing home a kid on oxygen, and soon we would have three. I can honestly say, I don't miss last winter very much. It was wonderful to bring the babies home, but nowadays things are much more fun. It certainly has been an action packed year.
Today, Greta noticed a tiny red bump on Gabbie that looked like a little bug bite. As the morning went on, more started to appear. Soon, all three of the babies had these little red dots all over their bodies. It looked as though we were facing a triple chicken pox infection. We called the doctor's office who informed us that this was probably a latent reaction to the chicken pox vaccination they received on the 13th of February. Apparently, reactions can occur up to a month later. As I write this, the bumps are almost gone and the babies are super happy. Whew! Grandma and Grandpa came in for the weekend so that we could go out to dinner tonight for Greta' birthday (which is the 25th), and I am glad we didn't have to cancel.
The pictures are of Gabbie from the day she came home and from her trip to Urban Toddler on Thursday, where she took on cashier duty. She has come a long, long way. Happy birthday to my Dad and Sister whose birthdays are both tomorrow.
