Little People

Remember these? When I was little we had a huge bucket of "Little People" and we played with them all the time. We had stuff for a school and a post office, lots of beds and chairs. We always had a great time.
This was Jordyn's Christmas present from Grandpa and Grandma Halladay. It's the new version of "Little People". I guess the old ones are just not safe for kids anymore. She loves to play with this house because it makes noise. (It seems all new toys now make noise.) The toilet flushes, the door bell rings and so does the phone. It's really cute....but guess what!

Jordyn would much rather play with the old stuff. She is really funny. It's amazing that kids learn so quickly to make things talk and move. Sometimes she plays for an hour and her attention span is NEVER that good.
In other news, cold season is upon us. Jordyn has been sick for a week with a runny noise and cough. And of course she gave it to Tessa. When we found out we were going to have a baby in the middle of winter I was nervous because of RSV. Well, I Tessa to the doctor on Thursday and he said that most likely she does have RSV but she's not bad enough to test for it yet. He said that she'll probably get worse before she gets better, but hopefully she won't get bad enough for a hospital stay or oxygen.
I've been a nervous wreck. It's been a long couple of days. The good news is, that so far, she is still doing about the same. She is still sleeping well at night and eating the way she should. I'm also lucky to have lots of family around to help me out. And I'm sure everything will turn out just fine.

Hang in there! My daughter was born in November and she got RSV too but not as bad to be hospitalized. Just keep the humidifier going and sleep propped up if possible. Not much you can do but wait it out. Oh and a blessing is always the way to go too!

RSV scares me too! Jayden just got a terrible cold, but so far Aliya hasn't caught it yet. It's nearly impossible to protect them from their older siblings' sneezes, coughs, etc. Good luck. I hope Tessa gets better soon!
