I haven't posted in a while due mainly to the fact Julia has been doing so well health wize. We FINALLY got the ringworm fungus cleared up. She has started the orthodontist visits. She gets her appliance to widen her upper jaw on Dec 23rd. The doctor is placing two barbs on the end of it to stop Julia from her thumb sucking habit (one she had BEFORE she was born....we have ultrasound pics). I am hoping it doesn't mess up her tounge too much. That is all we need is for her to not eat due to her mouth hurting.
She is still taking her allergy meds and the Zithromax and Vemma as well. Those last two really do make a difference as when she doesn't take it after about 3 days she starts having breathing problems or comes down with a cold.
I heard reports for other parents at her school that 2 kids have scarlet fever and that there are 5 cases of RSV in the 4yr old program. OH MY!
Julia is still doing well with her mid morning snack. She eats "brunch" with the school secertary each morning. Julia says she is her "BBFF" meaning best brunch friend forever. She is such a hoot!
She is excited about Christmas. She plays an elf in her class's play. From Santa she wants Pixos and from us she wants a Tinkerbell doll and Incredible Hulk boxing gloves. What a combination!
Hope everyone has a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season.
