kaiya has been really sleepy lately. i feed her breakfast in the morning, and she passes out 2 minutes later - in the high chair! she has been eating okay. she's been in a good mood. there is no sign of sickness...she's just sleeping a lot. hopefully she's just taking advantage of her vacation time and getting all rested up for school :)
the other day kaiya was playing on the floor. i called her name to try and get her to look at me and she answered back with "mommmmmm". my mother and i almost fell out of our chairs! i don't think she connects the word with me - but maybe she can learn. she is sitting on the floor right now just saying "mmmmommmm mmmommmm mommmm"...what a goofball :)

on a better note - miss thing's cold went away pretty fast. she still coughs in the morning, but she sounds a lot better during the day. she has a new favorite thing to do - she shakes her head back and forth like she's saying no. she does it in between rocking back and forth. she laughs her little head off the whole time she does it. she is also licking the backs of her hands and her arms. it leaves the skin all red and chapped - not pretty. i've been trying to discourage the behavior, and find a cream that will cure all that chapped skin. this poor kid has dry skin anyway - add in the drooling and licking...it's not good at all.

akaiya has been congested for a couple of days and yesterday she threw up at school so we decided to take a trip to the doc. she is also doing this weird breathing thing. it's almost like she holds her breath, and then she gasps for air. she does it a lot when she wakes up, and as time passes she does it less and less. this morning it was scary because she was holding her breath for so long she started shaking, and then she was gasping for air. by the time we got to the doc she was her smiley goofy self, so i felt like an overprotective mama...but hey, i have that right :) so the doc checked kaiya out and basically said she sounded okay, just had a lil cold. she cleaned a whole ton of nasty orange/brown wax out of kaiya's ears which might be why the kiddo was rubbing her ears...she hasn't done it since they were cleaned so maybe the wax was tickling her or something. as the doc was checking kaiya's lungs she started talking about a heart murmur...kaiya has been to the cardiologist and we were told that she did not need to be followed, her heart is fine, so i didn't really ask questions of this doc. it wasn't our usual pediatrician so i was thinking that she was hearing lung noise and attributing it to kaiya's heart... the doc finished her exam and just told us to turn on the humidifier and keep suctioning kaiya and she should be fine. as i was getting us both bundled up the doc came back into the room and said, "she get's followed up by a cardiologist right?" and i told her no, and went into what the cardiologist told us when kaiya was young... and then i asked her if she thought we should be seeing a cardiologist and she said that it sounds like a small murmur, but she thinks we should see someone. so now we have an appointment to see a cardiologist in january. hopefully it's nothing...i would hate to think kaiya has a problem that we should have been treating all along :(
