The weather has been horrible so far this week. Even in California, were the weather is perfect – it does rain. Boy has it been raining! Yesterday there were even tornados (I think 2) in Huntington Beach and Seal Beach, both just a few minutes from our house. I thought I left the days of tornado warnings behind when I left Texas! Apparently not!
While the weather outside is windy, rainy and cold – I am glad for one reason – it makes it easier to keep Darby in! Whenever she asks to go outside, all I have to say is “look, it’s raining” and she looks outside says “oh rainin” and moves on to the next thing! With her recovering from being so sick, staying in is so important.
We went to the pediatrician today and Darby is on the mend! Her ears are starting to clear up, thank GOD! The doctor did mention that if she has 2 more ear infections within the year we will have to talk tubes. She also has a viral infection and a bacterial infection (her diaper area) both which are completely normal parts of being a toddler. Poor baby. On top of it she had to get 2 shots as part of her 18 month check up. On the happier side of things, she is such a big girl now! The size of a 2 year old – 24 pounds (was 25 but has lost a pound since Sat because of being sick and not eating!) – in the 60th percentile for weight and 75th for height! The doctor said her vocabulary is also on point with a 2 year old. I’m not surprised, her tantrums are too!
