Sick Baby :(

Payslie at the Doctor with RSV

At the hospital waiting to get mucus suctioned

Just after she had to get blood drawn for some tests.

Our poor little Payslie has had quite the last few weeks. She got really sick one Saturday and so on Sunday we took her to an insta care and found out she had a double ear infection and the doctor sent us to the hospital for an RSV test. Well, sure enough, along with her poor ear infections, she had RSV as well. We had to take her to the hospital a couple of times to get all of her mucus suctioned out of her chest and help clear out her sinuses. I hated that. It was so sad to hold her down while they stuck a tube 6 inches up her nose, and down her throat :( Ugh, needless to say it was a rough week or two.

Well, just when we thought she was getting better, she came down with a fever. She didn't have any other symptoms or anything but we took her to the doctor and he said not to worry but come back if it lasted for another 3 days. So......3 days and a fever of 103.3 degrees later, we were at the doctor's office AGAIN. They were concerned that her fever had lasted 5 days now, but also that she had no other symptoms so they had us go to the hospital and do some blood tests, and we had to get her suctioned again so they could test her mucus as well. They said if they didn't find anything from the blood work they would probably have to do a catheter and test her urine. (Luckily we didn't have to do that!!) The only thing they found from the tests is that she had a viral infection called Rhinovirus. I guess it is basically like a common cold and can be caused from having RSV, so luckily it isn't anything to worry about, I just wish she didn't have to go through so much to find out she had a stupid cold!

Our Poor baby is so sick and afraid of doctors now, I think this experience has scarred her (and me) for life.

(they are almost 2 months apart but they look like twins!)

Payslie fell asleep like this just watching tv with Daddy. I think she wore herself out crawling around.

Watching Jazzmin through the glass door.

WOW! A lot has happened since I last posted about Payslie. She is now, very mobile, and can crawl and climb up on everything. She has her two top teeth now along with her two bottom ones. She finds it very entertaining to grind her top and bottom teeth together and the sound of it drives us crazy!!

I took her to get her ears pierced when she turned 9 months. They are so stinking cute and don't bother her at all. She doesn't even know they are there.

She loves her puppy Jazzmin. As you can tell from the pictures, she is a very large puppy! but they get along great. Payslie sits by the glass door and watches her play outside, and when she comes in Payslie watches her play and giggles everytime Jazzmin walks by her.

Payslie can give kisses now. I love it! When you ask her for kisses, she opens her mouth as wide as she can a lays a big slobbery one right on your cheek. My favorite thing is when she looks at me or BJ and gives us a big fat kiss with out us even asking!

Oh man, I could go on all day about all of the cute (and not so cute) things that she does. We love our little stinker more than anything!

Yard Work



We have finally started to put our yard in. Our builders put the grass and a tree in the front, but we wanted to add some stuff to make it look better. We still have a lot of plans for it, and we are not even close to being finished, but this is a start!
