Since I am so behind in blogging, I am going to catch up on the last two weeks in one post. On a bad note, Caroline was really sick last week. She had a high, unexplained fever and a very elevated blood count so we were in the doctor's office for four consecutive days for blood work and other tests. Poor baby, she was so miserable. The doc even mentioned putting her in the hospital, but, thankfully, she rallied and is now better. I have never known such a feeling of helplessness before. It is hard, hard to be a mommy with a sick baby and I am so thankful that she is normally very healthy. We had to spend a lot of time indoors so we were very very thankful for all of her new birthday toys. Some of these include her dolly stroller that she pushes around the house constantly (which means that I am constantly turning her around every time she bumps into something. Some nights Dan and I just sit at opposite ends of the room and she goes back and forth and back and forth) and her new slide which she can climb and go down all by herself. She LOVES this thing! Some pictures:Now that she is feeling better we have finally been able to get outside a little more which is good for both of our mental health! Even though it is cold, we just bundle up and go. The picture below is from a cold weather stroller ride. Please note that Bibby was crying because she did NOT want to wear the headband but her mean ole Aunt Mo-Mo made her.
Every once in awhile we get a decent afternoon and Caroline loves to sit outside and play with Lily.On one such afternoon recently, we stopped by Granny's and did a little photo shoot on her back deck. I did not realize that the swing she was on would be so "dizzying" on film. The results:
We have also been practicing our basketball skills whenever we get a chance and I even stole back the uniform I gave Bibby when she was a baby! (I am not being serious about the practicing, but we are a basketball family and hope that it is something that she enjoys someday) She looks like a natural in the uniform. Please notice her "guns" in the first picture.
Finally, I had to add some pictures from last Saturday night because they are too cute. We had some friends over for pizza and the big kids played Hide and Seek. They were hilarious and I can't believe that soon Caroline will be getting in on the action. She is already following them around everywhere they go. Won't be long now!
