Thrush is a yeast infection that causes white patches in the mouth and on the tongue. Thrush is most common in babies and older adults, but it can occur at any age. Well now that we have the definition out of the way...guess what both of my babies ended up with Thrush. I don't know why, but my guess is because they both like to spit up a lot!
But the stuff that we had to use to get rid of this is called Gentian Violet....this stuff turns everything PURPLE! It is funny and well you can't help take funny pictures of the kids with bright purple mouths...he he he.

Mom this pen tasted sooooo good...
I know once we did it with Sarah we had to do the same thing with Kahlan.

Sarah wanted to help feed Kahlan the pen...
As you can see the stuff gets everywhere! And to boot, if they spit up on you shortly after you put that in their mouth...yup you are purple also. But one good thing is it gets rid of the Thrush! Plus we get to have these funny pictures of our babies with bright purple mouths...

Kahlan's first try at cereal

Well Kahlan is growing up so fast, she is 5 months old now, but last month we started feeding her cereal. I know it is always a big milestone when you get to start feeding them stuff other than breast milk...but anyhow Kahlan loves it! I don't recall Sarah being this excited about cereal. But I will get finished feeding her the cereal and she gets upset because she wants more. She is too funny! But after that first time feeding her the cereal, Sarah went and got her baby and had to do the same thing. It was precious!! We have graduated from the bouncy chair to the high chair the past couple of weeks. So just maybe she will get to eat more than just cereal soon.

Here you go baby... :) awww so cute!

The Doctor is IN

So Zach always talks about the time he had his picture taken with his baby brother and he was playing doctor. Well we got a picture of Sarah doing the same thing with Kahlan. Whenever she brings the doctor play stuff out she has to check every one's hearts and give us all shots. Because that is what happens when she goes to the doctor...well the shots aren't all the time but she has a really good memory.

Sarah checking Kahlan's heart to make sure she is okay :)

yup she has a heart

Kahlan just smiles at cute!
Today she was doing the same thing and it reminded me that I wanted to do this post a long time ago. But if any of you know the show "Dr Who" you will understand this next part. But Sarah will often say that she & Daddy have 2 hearts like Dr Who does. It amazes me what Sarah will come up with and I get excited to hear what she will come up with next! But one this for sure Miss Sarah loves her sister Kahlan!
