Much Better....

Mylie and I are much better now. We have caught up on sleep. We go back to the doctor tomorrow for a follow up visit. Thanks to all who wished us well.

Not much else to report. I am looking forward to this weekend, I am hoping to get some more Christmas shopping finished on Saturday. Sunday we have a double birthday party to go to. I'm sure it will be a blast.

Today, Dad, Kirby, and Connor are coming to visit. I love watching Mylie and Connor interact. I hope they will be close cousins. All of my cousins and I are close, more like sisters. I really enjoy their friendship.

Mylie is still not crawling. She gets very frustrated and lays down and sucks her thumb. She will roll to what ever it is that she wants. Its quite funny. She can turn herself around and roll where ever she wants.

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Eventfull Thanksgiving

Well, this Thanksgiving will be one to remember. Tuesday evening, Mylie started getting sick. We called the doctor and they said to have her seen that night because she was vomiting. So, we went to the ER to find out that she had pneumonia. I felt so bad that I didn't know that she was that sick. Evidently, the cold that she had turned into pneumonia. So, we do a follow up visit the next day with the pediatrician. He gives her an oral antibiotic and we go on in to McMinnville. We have fun cooking and visiting on Wednesday and Thursday. By Thursday night we are all so tired. We get home and Mylie throws up again! We wait and then go to bed. She slept through the night, but that morning, she begins again. I call the doc back and they want to see her again. So, back to the doctors office we go. The good news, she is not dehydrated, but the bad is she has a bug on top of the pneumonia. He gives her a shot of medicine since she is vomiting. We come home and rest and drink pedialite. She kept that down so we are back to milk. She has done well in the past 24 hours. She is sleeping most of the day and at night. She is a little whinny and wants to be held. Which I don't mind at all to do. So, we have been watching movies cuddled up on the couch. Hopefully she is on the down hill slide and is going to start feeling better.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Did you go shopping? I wanted to, but didn't get to because of the sick baby. What wonderful deals did you find?

Fabulous Weekend!

We had such a great time in Louisville, KY. We stopped at the Cheesecake Factory in Green Hills for dinner on Friday. The food was wonderful. We got a huge slice of chocolate cake to eat at the hotel. It was enough for the three of us plus some left over. The hotel was huge and beautiful. We had a complementary hot breakfast in the morning including omelets, then Nanny and I were off to see Paula Deen! She was hysterical! It felt like girlfriends sitting around talking. She was such a hoot! She took lots of questions from the audience. It was kinda weird because many people brought her presents. One girl gave her a corn husker hat? I was not sure what that was about, but Paula loved it. She even put it on her husband. We had wonderful seat, so close that she made eye contact with us several times. She is so pretty in person, and so southern! She was even a little risque. Her husband was there with her and he is just as funny. That afternoon we went to the Olive Garden for a late lunch and then a little shopping. Louisville has wonderful malls. There are two very nice malls within a mile of each other. We did a little shopping then headed home. One thing about Tennessee that I forget until I drive out of state is how wonderful our highways are. Kentucky really needs to allot more money to restoring their highways. It was a bumpy ride. All in all we had a wonderful weekend. Here are a couple of pictures. Enjoy!

Girls Trip

Today, my mother, Nanny, Mylie and I are going to Louisville! We are going to see Paula Deen. I am so excited. Mom got us 2nd row seat for Christmas. Thanks Mom.

Yesterday, I went to the sneek peak Christmas Village in Nashville. It was so much fun. There were lots of great Christmas decorations and gifts galore!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Mylie playing nice

This is too funny. Here is Mylie "playing" with Abby. She was actually hitting her in the head with this toy. They are so funny together. It doesn't matter what toy one of them has the other one wants it and will take it. Its even more funny because the one who's toy was taken away doesn't cry, they just take it back, and the vicious cycle begins! When I stepped back into the room, this is what I found. I had to run and grab the camera.

Snot, Snot and More Snot.....

So, Mylie has a cold. Her first one. Being the new mom that I am, we went to the Doctor today because I was afraid it was dropping into her chest. She sounded a little wheezy. The Doc said her lungs were clear. That was a blessing. It should run its course in a couple of days. I have been using that bulb thing that you get at the hospital when babies are born to clean out her nose. I feel like I am going to pull her brain out of her nose! She will start to squirm when she sees the thing. I think it is an ingenious invention. I wish they made one for adults! Anyway, we are getting a humidifier and some baby Vic's and maybe we will be able to sleep a little bit better tonight. No one has commented in a while, I guess that my lack of blogging has turned most off from reading or checking this thing, but none the less, I will keep writing. Please, if you have any suggestions, or home remedies, comment!

Rainy Night

I know we need the rain but I don't like the tornado warnings that is sometimes brings. It made me realize that I need to clean out the closet under the stairs so that we will have a place to wait them out. I guess that will get done around Christmas time since that is the next time I will think about the closet. That's where the Christmas tree is located.

I am enjoying being home with Mylie so much. I was worried that I would miss work or that this whole thing would not work out, but it has. I couldn't be happier. You never truly understand what it is like being a parent until you are one. I thought I had an idea before she was born, but I didn't. My friend told me before she was born that it was like wearing your heart on the outside. It truly is. I love her so much it hurts! She is now putting herself to sleep. I can lay her down in her crib when she is tired and she will go off to sleep by herself. I miss rocking her, but I know this is the best for us both.

This picture is of Mylie at her Granna's and Dza Dza house this weekend. The weather was so nice and the leaves were starting to change. Granna has a great camera that used to take a few pictures with. We ended up with over 300! We had so much fun. They grilled out some steaks and we had a very relaxing day. Justin and Jay worked on the boat for an upcoming fishing trip. I don't think Justin has been fishing since Mylie was born. I am sure he is looking forward to getting back to his hobby.

I can't believe it's November already. I have got to get started on my Christmas shopping. It will be here before we know it! Hope everyone is having a great week.

So, Halloween was a fun filled day! We went into McMinnville and trick or treated. We went by my mom's school and had so much fun with her class. Her children dressed up as book characters. Mylie loved seeing all the children. Then we went by Aunt Stacey's and Nanny and Poppa's house. When we got back home, we went to a friends house for dinner and then out trick or treating some more! One of the husbands got his four wheeler out and had a trailer behind it. They spread some hay and we rode around the neighborhood on the trailer. We had a blast! Mylie fell asleep on the trailer in no time. Hope everyone had a safe Halloween!
