After 5 weeks of visiting, Little Miss Fancy returned home with her parents Saturday morning. There were lots of tears after she left and the house felt a bit empty, and a lot more quiet without her. The quietness could partly be attributed to our own 3 children being exhausted from all the excitement and sight seeing of the past week. I myself ended up drifting off on the couch Saturday only to wake up and stumble off to bed for another couple hours. I’ve been fighting off a cold for the past couple days and it completely wiped me out Saturday.
Today we seemed to have a little more energy and spent it swimming in Papa’s pool – the water was so crisp and refreshing. We bbq’d some chicken sausages and I made a salad and we had dinner at Papa’s by the pool. It was relaxing. It’s always nice visiting with Papa (my father in law), he’s fun, kind and tells great stories! It was definitely a great way to end the weekend.
While we were packing up getting ready to leave, the Milk Monkey was trying to climb out of his stroller. We’ve been having some climbing issues with him recently. I had forgotten what it was like to have a toddler around. Let me tell you, I’ve had a lot of reminders lately! He’s climbing up on things constantly and yet, he refuses to walk. He’s climbed both living room chairs, the little children’s chairs and he’s even climbed into the storage bin under the couch – he stayed in that one for about 45 mins just hanging out. The climbing makes it hard to get anything done when he’s awake. We’re forever having to rescue him! I guess it could be worse, he could still be screeching! Thank goodness he’s stopped the screeching!
The Little Princess is doing well. I’ve noticed a tiny bit of improvement in her face. Her little lips have started to slightly curl up again on the right side. It’s a very small improvement but it’s extremely encouraging! We went to the doctors visit this past Friday and the doctor confirmed we were given the right treatment at the hospital. She’s getting the right antibiotics and the 3 weeks was the correct length of time. I’ll be happy when this is all a distant memory behind us. We will definitely be more vigilant checking for ticks!
