...as in, that's what this post is gonna be: all over the place. I do have some fun things (with non-phone pics) to share soon, I just haven't had a chance to sit down with my laptop and get them written. Soon!
For now, here's the most recent collection of pics from my iPhone that somewhat tells what we've been up to as of late.
Last week, after Katie Wynn's fever returned on Monday morning, we paid a visit to the doctor and found out she had her first ear infection. Darn you, daycare! I knew this would happen, but it didn't make it any more fun to deal with. We got an appointment almost immediately when I called, and were taken straight back to our room. That's where we waited for TWO HOURS before seeing the doctor. So frustrating! My poor sweet pea had a 103 fever at that point and fell asleep on her Mimi.
After a good rest in her Mimi's arms, she woke up in a pretty good mood. She even had a couple smiles for us!
Then she got restless. Thank goodness for the chapstick I had in my purse, she was so into it! In fact, chapstick may have been the only thing she ate that day...
Obviously we are so glad that we made it to 16 months before getting our first real illness (other than a snotty nose). The downside to that, though, is that she has no idea how to take medicine and it was quite the battle to get any in her. It took two days before we got a solid dose of the antibiotic swallowed, so the fever and puniness carried over to another day. Aren't those droopy eyes just pitiful? Super huge shout-out to my mom who was willing and able to tend to our sweet pea while we worked!
In other trying-to-get-healthy news, we have weaned Lolli off of her daily medicines (hallelujah!) and yesterday she went for her first regularly scheduled monthly shot. She was a nervous wreck going to back to the vet and shook uncontrollably. She thanked me for taking her by throwing up in my car three times - once in my lap! - on the way back home. Super gross. I don't think it was the shot that made her sick, but instead was the treats she gobbled up at the front desk while I paid her bill. Gee thanks for that, Lolli.
This outfit on Katie Wynn cracked me up. I just appliqued it last week but didn't realize how huge it was going to be on her! And, is it just me, or does the all-white getup make her look like a painter? I had already finished our most recent painting project, so I put her to work on the laundry.
Oh hey there, bedhead.
The picture above was taken after we'd both gotten haircuts. No more mullet for Katie Wynn and no more long, stringy locks for this Mama!
We bought a baby at Walmart! Probably the best purchase we've ever made. She loved getting to ride in the big part of the cart. :)
I'm hosting a shower at my house in less than two weeks and it's gotten me motivated to try to whip my dining room into shape. One night after dinner, Matt and I were working on hanging some new shelves when we looked over to see that Katie Wynn had carefully carried in every one of her little seats. Even she knows that table is missing chairs!
While I appreciate Katie Wynn's offer to use her chairs, I hope to have appropriately-sized ones in the dining room in time for the shower. I purchased these MONTHS ago and am finally getting around to sprucing them up. Mom and I spent a day finishing up painting them this past weekend, so now we just need to get the seats reupholstered so they can finally be used in the room! Also pictured below are the chunky floating shelves we just made. They aren't totally installed yet because the stain was still tacky, but I'm hoping we can finish them up tonight and check that off the list.
I completed my first-ever Craigslist sale! The old kitchen chandelier is officially gone. Boom. That was super easy. Now, anyone want a shell chandelier?
Katie Wynn really loves her Baby Doll. One night, we watched her lay Baby Doll down on her face, cover her up, and pat her back while saying, "night night." She is such a good little mama!
These cousins showed up at church Sunday in coordinating chambray and navy outfits!
It doesn't matter how many times we tell Katie Wynn she can't climb on stairs, she will ALWAYS sneak around us and climb right up. It's hard to be mad at her when she's so dang cute doing it.
I have a list of a million things to do this week, but hopefully I'll squeeze in some time for more blog posts! What are y'all up to? Anyone got any exciting Valentine's Day plans?
