Is anyone wondering what happened to the blog last week? Let's just forget about that :D Moving on....
Poor little Harrison is on the mend from his THIRD ear infection since the beginning of November. Ahhh! No ear infections until this year and now he can't get rid of them! Here he is just after I noticed his ear drum had popped...he looks a little happier than earlier in the day.
So he's on his third round of antibiotics (both oral and ear drops) and he's getting referred to an ENT specialist. Our family doctor started going on about tubes and such, but my own personal feelings are that it seems a bit too soon for tubes. Am I wrong? I sort of feel like maybe the family doctor should spend more than 2 minutes 'examining' Harrison and maybe sit down to discuss some of the other options and possible reasons for the infections - but that's just me. I guess we'll see what the specialist says...in three months which is probably when our appointment will be.
On the same note, does anyone have any home remedies for ear infections? I was recently told to pour urine into the ear. I haven't researched (aka: googled) this, but I'm intrigued by the idea. Any other crazy ideas floating around out there?!
Aside from the constant ear infections, Harrison is doing well and really changing a lot these days. He is adding new words to his vocabulary everyday - although, most of them are still pretty hard to understand. He has also started standing up on Ella's bed to turn off the bedroom light - just what we always wanted. He also found himself a box - perfect for his teddy.
We thought we were going to take him for his first haircut over the Christmas break, but we didn't quite make it. If you have a look at any of these pictures, you'll know that day is coming soon!
One of the funniest things we've noticed him doing is using his farm animals or the Little People and making them talk to each other. I would assume he's doing it because he see's Ella playing like this so much. Regardless, it's priceless!
Thanks for reading :D
