Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

The House Gets Back to 'Normal'

Well, La Nina walked into the family room yesterday morning and announced, "I am wearing a dress and tights and my black shiny shoes to school today." With that, we officially declared her back to normal. The rest of us are getting back to normal too.

As for the Magster, the virus didn't hit her as hard as La Nina. While she was definitely not herself, she never developed the fever or the lethargy (darn it) that her sister did. During the height of her illness, she cut her first molar and is about to cut her second. So, not only was she sick, she was teething....poor kid.

So far, it seems like the grown ups are dodging this bullet. But I hate to even write those words for fear my throat will start hurting tomorrow. The other thing that is good: After last week, this week life with 2 kids seems so easy. There is no drama. Well, there is ordinary drama, but no high drama. My laundry is half of what is was after last week without the accidents. Maggie goes down in her crib, by herself. The girls take their medicine without a fight. Maggie still fights a nose wipe, but she wouldn't be our daughter if she didn't. I keep wondering when this is going to dissolve into chaos.

Tomorrow, we are trying the lab again. My fingers are crossed that the Benadryl works and we get the blood drawn. We have to take her back for her 15 month appointment soon. It will be a little embarrassing if we don't have the blood work complete by then. More tomorrow...
