Dang those Mosquitoes!!!!!!
Look what this mosquito did to Brooklyn! Whenever Brooklyn gets bit by a mosquito she swells up and it is really sad how much it affects her body. On Sunday night we were at my parents house and the kids were in the backyard playing. Later on that evening I looked at her and noticed she had a mosquito bite on her face above her. Well the next morning this is what her eye looked like! I was like oh my gosh is she ok! I called the doctor and he said to give her benadryl and put cream on the bite. They said that if the swelling didn't go down with in 24hrs to bring her in. Thank goodness it all worked out and her eye is looking better already. She was totally herself the whole time and on occasion would point to her eye and say eye owie and that was it. Brooklyn is such a sweet girl.

Crazy! What a funny place to get a bite. Was she itching it at all? Mosquito bites are so uncomfortable anywhere, but the eyelid/brow seems way worst. I love the pics of Mariyah going to school. So grown up!

Oh my gosh Amy! K this is so weird and funny at the same time, but when I saw that picture it totally reminded me of...ME! Yeah, when I was little, probably a little older than Brooklyn, for some reason those dang mosquitos would eat me alive and one would always get a good taste of my eyelid and it would swell just like that! Ahhh! It is no fun! She is so sweet though...well, is she!? :) HA!
