Our Little Beauty!  Layla loves “Tummy Time” now and rolls over and over and over.  She pushes up, she reaches and grabs toys and scoots herself to where she wants to be!

Our Central Coast Vacation

We had a wonderful time in Los Olivos.  We celebrated Guy’s birthday, went wine tasting, enjoyed lots of good food, and bought too much wine!

Layla’s First Bites of Rice Cereal!

Layla started trying her first solids in the form of rice cereal on November 12th.  She is only trying a few bites once per day, it is very watered down with milk so she can figure out what she is supposed to do! She isn’t quite sure what to think of the spoon or the funky texture!  She makes some classic faces!

Layla’s First Trip to the ER

PIC-0056

  Late Friday night after all of the Halloween festivities we took Lalya to the Emergency  Room at Tri City Hospital because she had been throwing up for about 2 hours, she was not her normal, happy, self!  She is just fine now, she had a bug, which we all got!  Yuck, it was no fun!  Seeing her  with the tiny I.V. hooked up to her little arm was heart breaking.  PIC-0057The Doctors and nurses said we did the right thing!  Dehydration can be very scary in infants.  We were released around 4am.  We saw our pediatrician on Saturday morning and he confirmed that it was just a nasty viral bug!  She continued throwing up, not as often though until about 5 pm on Saturday, she kept some fluids down and now she’s back to her happy, smiley, little self!  Boy it was scary!
