Quite the Comedian!!!

Well Dawson has turned into quite the little comedian! Though with David as his father I shouldn't be that surprised. He is really silly lately and is always trying to make us laugh. This is him being goofy at a restaurant.

David is always doing some kind of "magic" trick with his utensils so Dawson decided to give it a try.

Dawson has also discovered how to take off his own diaper and he is quite proud. I know he is late in discovering this but I kept thinking that he might not learn how, wrong. This is how I found him after a nap. I think he actually napped naked and woke up because he was peeing, ughh! It was everywhere like a stream had hit every article of bedding.

See the Pose!!!!!
I got some frontal view pictures to use as black male later in his life but decided not to post them for the world, YET....

More HIVES............

Well nothing has changed! Yesterday morning hives, more benadryl. Then in the afternoon hives again, more benadryl. This morning I thought we had finally got rid of them, nope, my Mom just called me and said she has them again! I have ruled out all soaps because those have not changed. I have ruled out her medications because she has been off for 4 days and I have ruled out foods because nothing new and its been six days now!
We have an appointment with her allergist on Tuesday but she cannot have benadryl for three days before the appt. yea right huh with the hives she's having.
I have come to the conclusion that it has to be something in the air.
The Pollen Count is:
Elm and Cedar are both high
Cottonwood is moderate
Mold is Low

I AM ALLERGIC TO COTTONWOOD!! I usually just get the runny nose, itchy eyes, etc. Brielle must be more sensitive hopefully they will be able to test her and then we will have a answer to the hives.

And then there were HIVES......

Well we have been struggling to get Brielle's asthma under control since January and surprise, surprise she is sick again! She got a cold back in Feb. but we could not seem to get rid of it!! I took her to the doctors on Feb. 19, to my surprise her breathing or O2 levels were in the low 80's, YIKES! He wanted to admit her to the hospital but after much pleading on my part he agreed to allow us to do a treatment at home. She got a shot of steroids in the office then was on oral steroids for 5 days, plus her Nebulizer breathing treatments at least 5x a day! After 3-4 days she started to really improve.
Though on March 8, it started all over again. Though this time I did not wait to go to the doctors we did not want her breathing to dip that low again. He again gave her oral steroids and a whole new slew of asthma medicine. She started Flo-vent on Monday, prescribed for twice a day. She mentioned on Friday that she was itchy, I did not pay much attention, great Mom right. I figured it was dry skin :( Saturday about an hour after she woke up she was complaining about itching again so I look and to my surprise she had hives on her arms and legs!!! I pumped her with benadryl and called the doctor. Well they cleared up and the doctor did not seemed that concerned. I figured she ate something she was allergic to since she is allergy prone:).

Then Sunday morning hives from HEAD to TOE, BAD. Not just bumps but welts!!! I freaked this time called the doctor and we were in at 12:30 pm. More steroids, Allegra and discontinue use of Flo-Vent. Then follow up with Pediatrician. (See I googled Flo-vent and one of the "serious side effects is hives which continues on to difficulty breathing!")

Now she wakes up this morning with HIVES again!!! Not as bad and this time they started on her arms and face, poor girl. More benadryl and called the doctor again still waiting for a returned called. Agggghhhhhh!!!!!!
Now $240 later, no resolve, she is still coughing and miserable and now itchy!! Plus Baby D is getting the cough again :((((. HELP ME!!!

Oh yea forgot to mention that on Wednesday night Dawson started limping!!! I know broken right!! Off to the Pediatrician I went at 8:40 pm. It was the same foot he broke back in November so I was sure it was re-broken but nope the X-Rays came back okay and after and 1.5 hours we were home. He is still limping doesn't want to walk on it and holds it up and crys so who knows what is going on with that kid! If he does walk it is on the "tip e toe" of that foot, :(. What a week!!!!

Just a week in the life of the Milius FAMILY!

Dawson is soooo Funny!

This kid is a crack up right now!! He is a face maker and a instigator! He loves to fight with his sister and irritate her and she definitely knows how to return the gesture!! Makes for a loud house. He loves his Daddy and always, always asks for him in the morning. He has really started to expand his vocabulary he can say:
Of course the usual, Momma, Dada
But he has started saying some new words and regulars
All done
Oh toodles, (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse)
He also says tons of names especially his cousin "Lyla" and will try and say any word you ask him too!!! He calls my dad, "Dough" instead of Coke which evolved from Coach thanks to Brielle, as a two year old hehehe! Yesterday Dawson was wearing a Nike Hoodie and points at the big Nike swoosh and says, "A Dough!!" Apparently Nike belongs to my Dad and he relized that Nike is all my Dad wears, observant kid, huh! Of course a lot of his words need to be translated but at least he is speaking!!
I am so excited he has improved so much in the last 2 months!! :)

Cutiest Boy Ever!

Told you he is Silly!
