February 2012 will forever go down in the books as the month when the nurses and doctors at the Pediatric Center in Frederick became our best friends, and how I really think they need to start a frequent buyer card!
Ashton after his hemotoma scare, managed to spend a good portion of his weekends in the pediatric center for a bacterial eye infection called periorbital cellulits. Originally he looked like he had been punched in the eye. It went down, only to return shortly after finishing his first round of antiboitics. Now he is on round two and I can only hope this time we nixed it!
In other news...Ashton has offically outgrown his infant car seat. Hard to believe he is getting so big.
He is almost walking. He is now taking 2 to 3 steps at time! He has really good balance! I really want him see him "walk" before he goes to Norway next week! I don't want to miss his first fluid multi-step walk!
He has taken a liking to big people food! He eats almost anything that we offer him.He loves his daddy! The sun rises and sets on daddy! As long as daddy is in the room no one else exists. If daddy leaves the room, Ashton is a mess! I think Olav has a love-hate relationship with the situation. On the one hand he loves that fact that Ashton is very attached to him and looks to him for most everything. But as you can imagine, it makes it very difficult for Olav to get anything done because he has a baby hemmoroid clinging to his legs constantly
He loves banging stuff on tables, daddys guitar, the floor etc. I really do thing we have a mini music prodigy. He also will dance whenever their is music on...very cute...sometimes he doesn't even need music!
Lily has been such a super big sister to him. He adores her! My happiest moments as a parent are when the two of them are playing and laughing together!
