Our February 6th post included a Lunar New Year (Seolnal) greeting - we later celebrated at a big New Year's festival at a local school. Zander especially enjoyed the lion parade:
February 6th post mentioned that Zander was finally back to full health following a case of pneumonia... I was wrong! On Valentine's Day, Zander made it through the school day okay, but had a really rough night. Again he wasn't himself - not eating, cough, difficulty sleeping, and overall not very happy. Daddy brought him to the doctor only to learn (via a second, very painful chest x-ray) that Zander still had pneumonia! The doctor prescribed a more 'harsh' antibiotic treatment this time that was really hard on Zander's system - his stomach was upset, causing very frequent diarrhea and thus a horrendous case of diaper rash that lasted over a week. Just looking at Zander's raw bottom was painful - poor little guy!! Here's a pic of the boys napping together during one of the rough days:
Valentine's Day also marked a school milestone for Zander - he moved up from the 'Toddler' room to the 'Early Preschool' room. He enjoyed being reunited with some friends from the Toddler room, and is benefiting from the additional structure of his new class.
Zander has recently been showing off his belly a lot:
Last weekend we had a fun Mall of America play date with Luke and Brady. Here are Nana and Heather riding the Diego Bus ride with Luke and Brady:
