Playing Outside!

Yea! I love playing outside! I am just like a cat...I paw at the garage door when I went out!!


We've gotten to play outside every day this week, since the weather is absolutely wonderful!!!!! It is great. Bethany doesn't have a huge variety of outdoor toys...but she surely makes do with what she has!

Here is a video of our Bucket-Head Bethany!

Yeah for us for posting our first video online. Don't expect this all the time. I am at the library with their "fast" internet & it still took 198,849,282 years to load!

Hor-rreee Mama lalalalamamamama!!!!!!!

Bethany loves this book! It is her favorite. It is called "Llama Llama Red Pajama" ("lalalalamamama" in Bethanize). Cory got it for her for last Valentine's Day & we read it almost every day. (occassionally she picks out Cat in the Hat). I have the story memorized for the most part. It really helps that it rhymes. Now Bethany wants to read this story whenever she can. She'll grab it and sit on the floor and flip through the pages. When she gets to the one page where Mama Llama is running up the stairs to get to Baby Llama (who is yelling for his mom) Bethany started to tell the mom to "hor-rreee, hor-rreee". She has memorized that page of the book & it is super cute to see her to tell the mom to hor-rreee up the stairs!

Seriously...she can't stop cleaning.
It is slightly insane...100% adorable...but still slightly insane!!!!

Who needs a toy box packed so tight with toys that it doesn't shut when you have straws!
Going in for a kiss! Something that Daddy has taught me!
Good news from the Casa de Milles....we are all feeling better. Isn't that a relief? Bethany's antibiotics are kicking in & the fever has been gone for 2 days now. I am finally over the cold that has had me down for the past week. Cory is still Cory. Lucky him hasn't gotten a bug yet!
Hopefully this good health tends to be a trend and not a fluke!

Infected Ears & Saddened Hearts!

Ah...this is comfy.
Why is Elmo talking to a cactus? That isn't realistic!
Why don't I feel good?

Bethany has been home sick the past 2 days. Monday the sitter reported that Bethany felt warm after her nap. We took her temp & sure enough she was running a mild fever. Cory stayed home Wednesday & took Bethany to the doctor. We learned that Bethany had her first ear infection!
:-( All Wednesday her fever has been relatively low (99.something or 100). The dr. gave her some antibiotics. Which we started last night. We had open house last night. So I was away from Bethany the whole time. That was heartbreaking for me! :(

Bethany woke us up at 3 in the morning this morning (until 4:30). She had a 101 or 102 fever! Yikes. Poor thing was one hot tamale. We gave her some Ibuprofen & it broke when we got up again at 5. She was drenched in sweat. I stayed home from work today to stay with the sleepy baby! Her fever is coming and going. It came back right before her second dose of Ibuprofen was due, then it went down within a hour of the dosage. Currently by the official Mom's Thermometer (the back of her hand) she definitely has a small fever back. Not the 102...but a small one.

We've already taken 3 sick days this year for Bethany. (1 for Cory & 2 for me) I hope this doesn't continue to being a trend. We'll for sure run out. Tomorrow Grandma is on duty. We have standardized testing at work...and subs and standardized testing isn't a good combo! ;o)

Say a quick prayer for our little Bethany to get better fast.
It makes me sad to see her so lethargic & icky!
