Late in the day on Thursday, the nanny share kid was screaming while they were playing at the train table and EGL started to CRY. He was covering his ears and he said "my ears hurt". He has had this cold for a week of congestion and cough which over the past year has also turned into an ear infection. We didn't want to take any chances so on Friday AM, I took him to the drop in hours at the doctor. I am SO happy they have drop in hours from 8-9!
Another thing we did on Friday AM was have cleaners come to our house. We've never had someone come to clean but we wanted to do this before the baby comes to ensure everything was deep cleaned, especially has we switch the rooms around for EGL. Our Nanny REALLY helps us by doing the dishes and laundry but we didn't want to ask her to get on her hands and knees and clean the baseboards behind the TV!
The two cleaners were here for THREE hours. They moved the furniture and scrubbed the baseboards, the shower, etc. Everything we wish we would do but either don't have time/energy/desire or I can't do right now. The house looked and smelled great!
Ethan awfully cheery on the way to the doctor. He said to Erik "Going to the doctor to check my ears." We went to the doctor and it was a STRUGGLE to have his ears checked. The last time we went for a possible ear infection, they had to clean wax out first which he HATED. So of course this time, when the doctor only wanted to look in his ears, he had a fit. She did get a look and he does not have an ear infection so that's good. Just a cold....
After the doctor, we went to Costco. We got there right as they opened and people were already swarming the place. Ethan wanted to sit in the big part of the cart AND eat the food as I put it into the cart.
After Costco, I dropped him off at the park to be with the Nanny and the share kid. He played outside for awhile then came home for lunch and nap.
I went to my now weekly doctor appt in the afternoon where they said I'm measuring on time. So, now we just wait for her arrival!
I also went for a mani pedi which was just lovely. I think they gave me extra massage time because I'm pregnant and it was great.

Gymnastics was on last night again so we watched that and had pizza for dinner at home. Ethan was practicing his "flips" again. Too funny!
