Memorial Day

We had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We took you to Riverfest and you had so much fun! You had the most fun eating. You ate 2/3rds of a jumbo corn dog, 5 bites of funnel cake and a half of an ice cream sandwich.










We also made lots of Home Depot runs with your Dad over the weekend.



Finally, we had a couple of dinner parties. We had Lori and Chad over for dinner on Sunday night and your Aunt Kara, Uncle JAM, Daniel and Michael over for lunch on Monday. You had SO much fun playing with Daniel! You chased him around and really played well with him. You also showed some interest in baby Michael. Great weekend!






Love,
Momma

Babies




You LOVE your "babies". You take them everywhere and usually walk around with at least three stuffed animals at a time. You love "Dirty Dog" (not pictured) the most and have to sleep with him. You also love Minnie Mouse (you have two identical. One was a gift from our old neighbors for house-sitting while they went to Florida. The other was GG's...you thought it was yours, so she gave it to you). Momma has problems getting them away from you when we do things like go upstairs or go to school.

Love,
Momma

Dance

Is there anything more precious in the world than this?!



Your FIRST pair of ballet shoes! I was going to hold of on lessons until you were three until I noticed how you were imitating your Nana when she stomped her feet and thought we would try it out! I enrolled you in summer dance camp and ballet, tap and tumbling lessons are in July. I'm SO excited and can't wait to see you in your little black leotard and pink tights along with those precious precious shoes!

Love,
Momma

FHM

My poor girl has been through the ringer! Over the weekend, you ran a low-grade fever. I gave you a paci all weekend since you were sick. On Sunday, the fever quit and then all of these little bumps appeared around your mouth. I thought it was from me giving you extra paci time, until I got the email the next morning from the preschool about the Foot, Hand, Mouth virus going around in the toddler rooms, and it all started making sense. What I had written off as a diaper rash and too-tight shoes was suddenly explained. Also, you got a rash all over your legs. My poor, sweet baby! Fortunately, you didn't get a bad case of it. However, it has made you pretty itchy and cranky. Here's the only picture I could get of you to show you the bumps. For some reason, you don't like Momma taking your picture right now:


Not much you can do about this virus. You shouldn't be contagious anymore since the fever is gone and the bumps burst and crusted over. I'm just trying to dry everything out by giving you Epsom salt baths and benedryl at night. Hopefully, you will be back to your normal self soon!

Love,
Momma
