Family Update

The pediatrician called this morning- the most recent giardia test- POSITIVE!  ugh!  We will pick up another round of antibiotics in the morning.  We cannot wait until this pest is GONE!!

Last week Igor was sick.  I knew he had a cold but he rarely complains when he is sick and he doesn't slow down so if he doesn't have a temperature I never know how sick he really is.  One night before bed he said "I cannot  get all my air out."  The next morning we were in the pediatrician's office.  He had walking  pneumonia.  He is feeling much better now.

On Sunday the scouts had their annual rain gutter regatta.  Igor felt better so we let him race (blow his sailboat down the length of a gutter)  He placed third in his den!
Little Ms. Merone is learning new words everyday.  She is now saying: buckle, goo gurl (good girl), shool (school), I love you.  Her personality continues to emerge.  When were in Ethiopia she was quiet and reserved.  That personality continued to show itself for a month or so once we were home. Now she is very happy>  She loves to be in the middle of whatever is going on.  Kickball game in the yard with the boys- she's in!  Someone getting a hug- she wants one too.  She talks (babbles) all the time, sets up tea parties, loves play dough, plays with babies and LEGOs .  She LOVES Henry and Igor.  She is a wonderful blessing to our family.
