Playing Catch-Up

1) I (sort of) lost the cable to get pictures off my camera. So...this is going to be a very interesting post since I don't feel like taking the time to write 6 different posts.

2) It finally snowed enough to stick, and thus we must document it.(Yes, two whole pictures to document the first snow of the year!)

3)Ava has her very first ever ear infection. The last two days were rough. On Wednesday night she started running a fever, and Thursday was all about cuddling, sleeping, and trying desperately to get any sort of fluid in her. I've never seen her so lethargic before. Hated it. Thursday evening I went to take her temp with our in-ear thermometer. She screamed when I took the right ear. Me being the conscientious mother I am decided to poke and prod over the next couple minutes to make sure it actually hurt and she was not just being mad or tired. Nope, it hurt, and so we were at the doctor's office last evening. Amoxycillin for ten days should clear it up. Let's just wrap this up by saying that Thomas and Friends is becoming over-watched.

4) Just prior to the daughter getting sick, we had our 20 (ish) week sonogram. My heart skipped around as I saw a perfect little baby moving and wiggling just like his/her older sister did. (Fair warning, we honestly and truly don't know the baby's gender, and that is honestly and truly why we are saying we don't. Thank you.) The evening before the sonogram was the first time I'd actually felt movements that were beyond a doubt the BABY. It could have just been gas before. (I'm just being real here, since my innards are being squeezed every which way and it makes digestion feel different.) P.S. I'll try and get a picture on here soonish.

5) I've realized that I've been rambling on and on, and I wanted to show you some Christmas gifts! I'm using "brown paper packages tied up with string" for inspiration. I love it so much better than excessive amounts of paper, and it's really easy to wrap everything too!

***(Edit: the name tags were on sale at Hobby Lobby last year after Christmas. The patterned boxes are at Walmart, and the ribbon was a great big bundle from KMart.)
I hope you are having a delightful week...thank you for reading!
