Clean Bill

Brynlee had her last neurological check up last week. Since my days of working are dwindling down, Jimmy brought her in. She did great! They said her small motor skills are above average. And she is a healthy and happy little girl.

Whew! I'm going to say it again. Whew! We are out of the woods. With that illness anyway. Now we just have a great story to tell about the 2 month old baby who survived bacterial meningitis and escaped un scathed.

Brynlee actually lost a couple of pounds. She is always on the go. And her eating habits are horrible now. I'm not sure what happened. I was so careful in the beginning. I didn't even give her any fruit until she was 8 months old. She only had vegetables. Now, she spits out fruits and vegetables in any form. Somewhere along the line she decided she didn't need those. I've tried to hide them in different things. This kid is hard to fool though. She'll eat garlic mashed potatoes. And French fries. Do those count as veggies? No? hmm... I'm not sure what else to do at this point then. I guess I'll just keep trying!

I'm sure the eating will get worse. Everything I give Charlotte she won't eat. I about walk down to my room and close my door each night at dinner. Why do I bother? She still hasn't eaten dinner. I tried mac and cheese and I tried a corn dog. Super healthy I know but I can't get her to eat. Maybe I just need more variety and more new stuff. I don't know but oy... kids are tough! Especially my naughty 2 yr old. So exciting on Brynlee's good news! That is so awesome! At least those 2 months of hell were just that and nothing more. Yay for her! I can't wait to meet her someday! She'll probably be like 5 by the time I do!

Try sweet potato fries...I would think those are better than regular ones...
I also throw in a little butternut squash with Ryan's mac and cheese. It mashes right in with it and he doesnt care (now he knows I make it like that but still doesnt care).
