Settling In

Last week was a pretty crazy week. I mentioned earlier that Grace started daycare on Tuesday which is going surprisingly well so far. We are trying to get used to our new schedules of getting up much earlier in the morning which has us really dragging by the end of the day. Grace is taking it all in stride. She seems to love daycare. She is in a very small class so she gets a lot of attention which is good. She has cried a little during the day because she wanted us but we haven't had any hysterical screaming at drop off yet.

Grace has also been dealing with some sort of allergy this past week. It started last Sunday when she woke up with some redness under one of her eyes. The next day she woke up with her other eye swollen on her upper lid. It seem to be bothering her much but we took her to the doctor just in case. The doc just prescribed drops and Benadryl. Over the next few days the swelling seemed to subside and reappear every other day. We haven't yet been able to figure out if it is something in her diet that is causing it. Hopefully it is not the cat. She has a checkup with her doctor this week so hopefully we will learn more then.

We ended this week ed with a trip up to Annika's to celebrate her 2nd Birthday. Mei Lu was also in attendance. Hard to believe that our girls are all turning two!!!

First Day of School

Could it be the ragweed? I haven't had any allergy issues in 7 years, and I have been miserable off and on for at least a week. My son too- the redness under the eyes and everything. We're both miserable, and supposedly my son has no allergies. I think it is just a bad allergy season.

Poor Grace. I hope she is feeling better soon!!!

We've all been miserable too - stuffy and sneezy. Glad to hear that daycare dropoffs have started out okay...that helps! Sophie has a good allergist in Burlington if you need a recommendation. We go there again in 2 weeks.

Oh my gosh - she is so very pretty!! Hope the allergy gets identified soon. Our Jia also started school (last week) and so far, so good. I do believe she even has the same Dora lunchbox as Grace!!
