Spring Faerie update


Here she is again. Lots of color changes in that wing, so it doesn't look like much progress.

Kid update: I thought codeine was supposed to make kids sleepy, but it's just revved up Logan. We switched to regular acetaminophen, hoping that it would calm him down. He's had a little fever, but the meds help that. He's been talking more than he ever did before the surgery. Several people told me this would happen, but I really didn't expect such a drastic change so quickly. He was reluctant to even try words before, but now he's dropping them left and right. He's also going stir crazy from being in the house for so long. He'll probably go back to daycare Wednesday, so one more day of enforced inactivity and soft foods. Here's a cute pic from a few weeks ago. He's 20 months old now (yes, Gio noticed my booboo).

Just an FYI, codeine can cause nightmares. When I was sick as a kid, my mom (a pedi nurse) would give me codeine cough syrup and I would have really bad dreams. No fun!

PS, Logan is a cutie pie. Sorry he's so revved up, but how can you resist his little face? (This comes from a cat-owning married woman w/ no children). ;)

Wow, that wing looks so intricate and beautiful! What a lovely picture of Logan, he's adorable. I assume it's "months", not "weeks"? Or I'll seriously be questioning my judgment of kids' ages... :-)

Oh my ! Such a face! He's a beautiful boy! He must have good genes. :)

I remember that when my kids were younger, I was told (by my pharmacist husband) that codeine can sometimes have an opposite effect on children. You think they'll be sleepy, but they become more active.

Love your fairy. Glad L's surgery went well - he's darling! :)

Great photo of Logan - I'm so pleased he's doing well.

Spring Faerie looks fantastic - we all know how slow a TW can be with the colour changes - your progress looks great to me!!

So good to read that Logan is on the mend and speaks more than ever before.
