Just a really bad picture of one of my favorite things! I love that she holds our fingers now!Our weekends have been nothing short of lame sauce these days, and definitely not worth talking about. This weekend was none the better.... but that's just life I guess. There are still little moments that I want to remember so it's being documented :)
This past weekend was the kind of weekend where we had no plans set in stone. I wanted to plan a hundred different things and Eric wanted to plan on nothing but some serious R&R. Eric won, but not in the way we would have liked. Mia came down with what we self diagnosed as a mild case of croup :( Poor baby! What started out as what I thought was random coughing because of the wind, turned into a full blown coughing fit Friday night that kept Mia from falling into a good sleep. She got up with us 3 or 4 different times (which I didn't mind! this never happens so I took full advantage of the extra cuddles) but finally fell asleep once we went to bed for the night. The coughing has affected her most when she lays down to sleep which has been so sad! But thank goodness she caught this now instead of when she was much younger when this would have most likely developed into RSV!
So this weekend consisted of 1. Pajamas. Allllllll weekend long. 2. Dairy Queen blizzards. I really thought we deserved one each night, but we only indulged on Friday. But no worries! Our order of girl scout cookies came and that got me through the rest of the weekend. 3. More movies than we've watched since Mia was born. Catching Fire (so good! I thought it was way better than the first. Plus I got Mia cuddles throughout the movie which made things a lot easier on my heart :) ha!) Enders Game (not as good after watching Catching Fire.) Despicable Me (Mia's favorite. She loves the minions!) Tangled (still one of my favorites! And how am I just now realizing that Rapunzel's voice is Mandy Moore?) How to Train a Dragon (Eric's favorite. He's been waiting forever to watch this with Mia!) Plus a few random netflix picks... I mean seriously, we've never sat and watched this much TV since Mia was born, but it was the only way to get her to take some down time! 4. Our own personal time which was much needed! I went to spin and Eric went shooting! 5. Lots of outside time! Mia loves being outdoors and the cold air helps croup so we spent as much time outside as possible in between the movies!
Fun little facts about Mia 1. She now says doggy but only when she hears one barking! She just oohs and aahs if we show her a picture of a dog and looks at us like we're idiots if we try barking to get her to say it, ha ha! She loves to hold our
