A Little Update

***Edited to add that Ellie has a high fever again and is acting uncomfortable so we're going to the doctor and Big Daddy worked 17 hours yesterday and I've had maybe 8 hours of sleep over the past two nights and I'll be parenting solo until Friday and Ellie was up REALLY early and Maggie is sleeping MUCH later than usual. Ughh.***

Ellie's finally fever-free (at least for right now) and is resting well! I went out to get more M.otrin and thermometer covers and then came home to put the girls in the bathtub. I decided to check Ellie's temperature since she was still really warm and it was time fore more medicine. It had gotten even higher than it was last night, so I decided to call the pediatrician. If she has a fever in the morning they'd like for her to come in. I also found out that my mommy-friend K has a sick little boy too. We were both at Ms. A's for a birthday party on Saturday, so we're thinking that someone shared a germ.

And speaking of parties...we had so much fun at our friend C's fourth birthday party! C is my mommy friend A's little boy and we like to think that he'll be Maggie's future husband!!
Maggie ran off to play as soon as we got out of the car and Ellie enjoyed sitting in the stroller for a while and then being worn in the sling.

C lives on a farm so we were able to visit farm animals and ride tractors!
Ellie was able to see her friend Baby T again. Ms. A & I want these two to be best friends.
We were also able to meet Baby L for the first time! Maggie, Baby T and Baby L were all in the bellies in Kindermusik at the same time. These two sweet girls loved Ellie's Strollee.
Maggie was thrilled to see her Kindermusik friend E! (Baby L's big sister) These two became inseparable right before Kindermusik ended and we moved.

While the boys were checking out C's new birthday toys, the girls took over the sand pile! They got really dirty and had so much fun!
I spare you the pictures of the Bog Garden! I wore Ellie in the sling the entire time and Big Daddy pushed Maggie in the stroller (which we lovingly call "Strollee") while she held her Disney Princess umbrella over her head. Maggie didn't want her picture taken and made a pouty face every single time I pulled the camera out!! We had a lot of fun and can't wait to go back when we can spend a little more time there.

We were planning a trip to the zoo with our friends, C, K and E, but have decided to postpone it due to the fevers. I cannot wait to spend some quality time with my three sweet mommy friends (and all of our kids) sometime soon! The adventure of raising toddlers and then (three of us) having our second babies really caused us mommies to bond!

Sorry the fever is back. Keep us posted on what the doctor said. I hope your day has gotten a little better.

Major bummer about the fever. Gooner has roseola and that was no fun. Five days of high fever and sleepless night for me and I was about to go nutso!
