Twins..If It Wasn't for the Big Age Gap!

This past week, I was going through some old pictures and I was shocked by what I saw...Nixon and Lily could be twins!!  Well, if it wasn't for the whole 3 years apart thing!  I always said Nixon would make a pretty little girl..now I have proof :)

From the Land of the Sick

Starting on January 14th, our home was invaded by the sick bug! (any and every kind)  Nixon was the first victim, ear infection with possible strep/flu.  They didn't do a test for the flu since he was past the fever stage and couldn't get any medicine to help that.  They did put him on an antibiotic for the ear infection/possible strep.


He seemed to get better, but exactly one week later, Lily started acting weird.  She had been in daycare for one week by this point and when I took her to the doctor, she had RSV and thrush.  The only good thing to come out of that week was I got one more week at home with my baby and she actually slept through the night the whole week she was sick, weird as that may sound.


Exactly one week after that, Landon started acting funny.  One more test at the doctor and he was diagnosed with the flu.  He was completely wiped out for a good 3-4 days.  He did nothing but sleep and drink his water.  He wasn't eating, but at least he was hydrated!
This is an old picture of him sleeping..I didn't get a picture of him sick and he's the one that slept the most!

Get him well, and lo and behold, one week later, Nixon tests positive for the flu.

Needless to say, we're tired of Old Man Winter and all the sickness that he has brought to the Walters' household.  And I'm sure my employer is ready for me to be back at work..I haven't worked a full week in 9 weeks!

Lily - 2 Months

It's so hard to believe that my baby is already 2 months old!  That's 1/6 of the way to her first birthday!!  When we went to her well check, she was 11 lb. (50%) and 22" long (50%).  Her head was in the 25%, so she has a little head like her daddy. :)  She got her shots and I think Nixon cried more than she did.  He can't stand to hear his baby sister cry.  He takes his job as a big brother very seriously!  She's getting more and more of a personality and we love her more and more every day!

At two months, Lily:

  • can follow you across the room with her eyes
  • can roll halfway over; she kicks with her left toes and rolls about halfway onto her tummy and gives up, but I think she'll be there before long
  • coos, she makes a lot of vowel sounds like ooo and aaa, which seemed to impress Dr. Langdon
  • has slept through the night for a week straight, but has since gone back to waking at least once a night
  • eats 6 oz at a time, every 3 hours
  • has tried bananas and loved them!
  • still loves to take a bath..it's the one thing that can calm her down when she's fussy
  • has taken on the nickname 'Pudding' and 'Pumpkin'
  • smiles a ton and her whole face lights up
  • is definitely a morning person..that's when she is at her happiest state
  • is wearing 3 month clothes, 3/6 month in some pi's
