Surprise, Surprise

We received around three inches of snow yesterday and overnight. This is how it all started around lunch on Tuesday.

Maggie wanted to touch the snow, so she went out on the patio and then she made this face.I insisted that we take another picture without the cross-eyed face and got this.
Then, she decided to get her coat and catch a few snowflakes on her tongue.
She wanted to take full advantage of being "snowed in" and decided to stay in her pajamas all day. She also pulled out a pair of flip flops to keep her feet "toasty".

I decided to check on-line around 5:30 this morning to see if Muff's preschool would be open for today. Of course, it was not. Both girls were awake around 6:30 and we were eating breakfast by 7:00. We weren't able to take advantage of our snow day because Ellie had an appointment for her nine month check-up. And we also had an "appointment" with H.obby Lobby!

You may remember that I accidentally took Ellie for an eight month check up that was supposed to be a nine month checkup, but had her ears checked anyway because of her fussiness. They were clear and after talking with the doctor we were pretty sure that her fussiness was because of her to four teeth that are trying to come in.

Shortly after that appointment I decided to really try sleep training and night-weaning and I had great success! I think we had at least seven wonderful nights where I had many consecutive hours of sleep. A couple of weeks ago, the frequent waking and almost constant fussiness was back along with a runny nose I attributed it to teething and having a little cold since Ellie wasn't running a fever. I try not to always think that something is wrong because I know that babies fuss. Sometimes I should trust my instincts.

Baby Ellie has a double ear infection.

The doctor thinks that it's probably teething and a runny nose that's causing her ears not to drain properly. This is the same problem that The Muffin had at around 10 months old and her ear infections never healed until she had tubes pit in at 15 months old. We are really hoping that the antibiotic takes care of the infection and that everything will go normal with her little ears from here on out. Ellie enjoyed taking her antibiotic and antihistamine after lunch.

Of course, Muff decided to cough like crazy while we were at the office. The doctor checked her throat and it was very red. They did a strep test (which was negative!) and gave her a sample of cough syrup. Muff took the cough syrup and made the declaration that she was "never ever taking that medicine again". She was a little surprised that the doctor checked her out and kept saying, "I didn't even know I was going for a check-up!".

We visited at H.obby Lobby to see if they had any of the things that I need while our prescriptions were being filled. I'm still looking for just the right things to hang in both Maggie and Ellie's rooms and I have a little Easter project that I needed to buy for. (More on that later.) Our trip was a partial success. I found the materials that I needed for my Easter project, a rug for the foyer (66% off!) and Maggie found some glitter-y Easter eggs for her and Ellie.

Oh...I almost forgot the biggest surprise...The Bachelor. I was glued to the tv and so happy to have the living room all to myself!
