    AHHH!! I can’t believe that! How scary. 🙁 I would have had a heart attack right there.

    I know exactly what you mean about trying to take more than one child somewhere, especially when you are lugging the baby seat. 🙁 It is not fun at all… I finally had to get these little backpacks with leashes on them! They worked great!!! The girls still felt like they could run and move, but I had complete control. hee hee. 🙂 You might look like evil mom, but they’ll never get away again!! LOL 🙂

    Hope the sweet wee one is better soon. :s

    I TOLD YOU that a baby that young shouldn’t be having a fever! Too bad you got such a scare out of it. At least she’d be in good company (with Emma and me) if she did have heart problems…?!?!

    Maybe she wouldn’t be sick if you kept her feet wrapped up as well as you do her arms. She’s probably going to have psychological problems to go along with her heart problems from being kept in a straight-jacket, burrito blanket her whole life. Did you ever think of that?

    That would freak me out too! He better take a good listen at the next appointment! Heart problems are so scary!

    I think you should take Ann’s advice. I saw a kid wearing one of those backpacks a few days ago and I did think that the leash might be a good investment for you. We won’t judge.

    And if Caroline does have a heart condition, I don’t know if I want to risk having a baby with our genes! What the heck?!?

    I hope Caroline is better soon. Maybe the doctor was hearing a “good” heart murmur. James apparently had one of those for a little while. The doctor told us that sometimes the way the blood goes through the valves will sound like a murmur, but it is a slightly different sound. It usually goes away. Anyway, James’ “good” heart murmur did go away by his 4 month check up. Good luck! Your girls are so cute!

    Mom, Mom, Mom–

    A well-bundled baby sleeps longer and sounder which in turn produces a happier and healthier baby…and mother.

    Did you ever think of that?

    That is a terrible st9ry. I was afraid it would end the way it did for my guy. I took him in at 2 weeks with a fever, and they admitted him to the hospital for 2 days and did all kinds of things to him- including a spinal tap (they worry about meningitis).
    Pretty irresponsible comment on the doctor’s part.
