6 months adjusted age

I think Jordan is telling us she is too big for the swing.

Can you tell I love taking pictures of Rylee sleeping.

Today is the girls' six month adjusted birthday. We have had a horrible week with allergies. Last weekend we had to suction Rylee almost every 10 minutes because her allergies were really acting up. She ended up getting an irritated airway and we started suctioning up blood by Monday. This had us a bit concerned so I called Rylee's special care doctor and she wanted us to try to only suction every 2 hours. This was nearly impossible as Rylee had so much stuff coming up. She started puking from gagging and coughing so much and her oxygen levels went down some. She is much better now that she has some Zyrtec and Mucinex. Her oxygen level is just a little down from where she had been satting on her own. We are still having to suction alot more than normal, but at least she doesn't have any blood. Not only is she dealing with allergies, she now has two bottom teeth. I am not sure how long she has had them, but I just noticed them last night. She was pretty fussy this week and we just thought it was because she was miserable with allergies. We will hopefully keep her healthy until we go to CMH on the 12th for her routine check up. Jordan has been having some trouble with her allergies too, but not nearly as bad as Rylee's. She has another hearing test on Tuesday so pray she passes so we will have one less thing to worry about. She is doing really good at attempting to crawl. She can get across the room in no time. I have to take her to Lawrence on Friday to get her flu shot and some routine blood work so she has a busy week. We have officially closed our house to all kids. That includes kids 18 and under. There has been too many cold and flu's going around the school system so we want to take every precaution we can. I know this is going to be hard for several people, but we really want to keep these girls healthy as can be.
