The girls had their first dental appointment today and it went pretty well. Taylor laid down in the chair like a big girl and did exactly what they needed her to. Sutton was standing over by the fish tank the whole time Taylor was getting her teeth cleaned saying "I not do dat. I not do dat, mommy" so I knew she was not going to go easily. When Taylor finished I put Sutty in the chair and she cried the entire time during her cleaning and would only stop crying if the lady asked if she could squirt water into her mouth. She drank, and drank, and drank. I must not have given her enough juice this morning! Anyway, I don't think she was traumatized or anything but just not happy about it. I sat beside her and held her hand the whole time but the hygenist had to pry her mouth open constantly. It could have been a lot worse. I only have pictures of Taylor in the chair because Sutty was not about to let go of me for a picture!

Chilly at the beach
They loved the bunk beds!
Doctor's visit at the beach
We went to Destin last week for our family beach trip with my parents, my brother and his family, and my two step sisters and their families...there were 17 of us in all and we had a great time! There were a few bumps in the road along the way but we made the best of it. Mom rode down with me to help keep the girls occupied on the way down. We followed John and then Jennifer and Jordon were behind us. We made it all the way to Georgiana and then John got pulled over and got a speeding ticket...not a good way to start off. Taylor was also not feeling great on the way down and when we got there we took her temp and it was 102.5 and the next morning it was 103.4 so I had to take her to the doctor. I hate being out of town and having a sick child because I don't like having to see a doctor we don't know. We had to go to a doc in the box and he said she had an ear infection and gave her an antibiotic. The next day she broke out in a rash in her diaper area and within a couple of hours it started spreading to her legs, tummy, etc. I called our pediatrician's office and the nurse said she thought she was having an allergic reaction to the Rx, which is what I thought also, and to stop the meds ASAP. The next day it looked awful and she had huge (the size of my hand) welps all over her bottom, legs, tummy, arms...I have never seen anything like it before. So, back to the doc in the box again and Shea also took Peyton because she was puny as well. (Forgot to mention that the day before we left Peyton and Madi had to go to the doc and Madi had bronchitis and Peyton had a sinus infection. Poor Peyton also had to take 5 tests on Wednesday morning before she could leave for the beach!) So, we pull up at the doc in the box that I had been to 2 days before and they were closed. We found another place and both girls were seen again by the doc. He said Taylor had a virus that had caused the rash, high fever, runny nose, cough, etc. and poor Peyton had the swine flu. Lovely news to get when you've all been in the same house together for 3 days! The doc gave me an Rx for a steroid to give Taylor but I didn't get it filled because I hate giving them steroids if they don't just have to have them and she wasn't bothered by the rash. I treated it w/ cortisone cream and it was completely gone in 2 days. Lisa, my step sister, also was sick and went to the doc down there and had a sinus infection and an ear infection. My brother found out yesterday that he also has the swine flu so I am just praying we all don't come down with it.
