That is all you got?

We are still in the 10 Circle of Hell around here. Yesterday, Arun was his perky self, merely in need of sleep. Then last night, it became apparent that it was to be Anjali's turn with illness. Per our doctor's appointment this morning, it has been confirmed that yes, indeed, Anjali has two ear infections. This brings our Grand Household Total of Infected Ears to four. Go us! I have been to the Target pharmacy so many times in the past 6 days that Greg, the pharmacist, has been one of my few adult interactions and he is beginning to look sorta hot. The upside to all these Target excursions is that X circles through the parking lot so the kids can sleep. Which translates into some Kid Free Shopping as I wait for the scrip to be filled. I sneak in fun stuff hoping that X does not notice the extra bags. In related news, Choxie has released a special line of holiday chocolates, those bastards.

I wish I could compose a hilarious post with heartwarming tales but really all I have got is copious amounts of mucus mixed with antibiotics dispensed in florescent hues. I shall just move on - is that acceptable with you??

My baby girl turned 5 months yesterday. While Arun is the engine that put our little family on track to becoming a Family, Anjali is our caboose. To say that she completes us is an understatement. As stressful as this past week has been, I would have it no other way.

That first photo of Anjali might be the cutest thing I've ever seen! Those eyelashes are divine!

Oh my goodness what a cute tongue!!!

Anjali is so cute and adorable that it makes my womb clench. Sigh...

Mamma Sarah said...

Your kids are too precious and I was wondering when the Choxies were going to come into the story once you mentioned Target... :-) Man, have I gotten to know you or what?

Anjali said...

Happy five months! I just love PB Anjali.

mmmmmm babycheeks mmmmm

So sorry about the ear infections. Poor little tots.

Rozanne said...

What a beautiful little girl! Wow you'd never guess from the photos that Anjali has ear infections. She looks to be in absolute bliss!

Mojavi said...

man that tongue cracks my ass up!!!!!!! She is so beautiful!

Dee said...

Hope both kiddos are feeling better soon. We've done round after round of ear infections over here and they are no fun at all.

Dooneybug said...

Dang, Cagey...she is just the cutest little one ever! I can't wait to see my little girl with some hair on top, so jealous of Anjali's lovey locks!! And man, those lashes go on for miles. I just 'got' the whole "peanut butter Anjali" and that is so funny, not to mention very clever.

Look how big she is in the chair!

Diana said...

Oh, my GOD is she cute or what!

I have so far resisted throwing any of the holiday Choxies in my Target cart but I know my will is weakening.

MLE said...

Love, love, love the snaps. You and X sure made some beautiful babies!

flybunny said...

OMG the eyes and eye lashes are to die for - we should get her and Tyler together and kill the internet with the big blue eyes and gummy smiles.

We have the double ear infection bug here as well and the antibiotics were worse than the actual infection -egads!

Hope all is well in cageyland and I hope to see you before the holidays!

Holy cow that's a long tongue!

...sorry about all of the infected ears at your house.
but...the silver lining to that cloud: the kid-free shopping. oh, that's wonderful, isn't it???

Erin said...

YIKES! A quarter of the households ears are infected?! Not good. Hope everyone feels better soon.

And yowza! Where did the last 5 months go?! My baby turned 5 months old today and I feel like I barely remember the itty-bitty days.

Christy said...

Yikes! Four ear infections in one week? You poor, poor woman. Porgie and I have been sick for the past week, and I am praying Izzy doesn't get sick too.

I can relate. I just looked at our medical spending for 2007 so I can determine our FSA for 2008. We spent 7,000 on medical expenses this year. SEVEN THOUSAND.
