A Week of US

We had a somewhat uneventful week last week.  Ella started the week off with a low fever for just a few hours, really, but a super runny nose.  Which I still believe to be allergies.  She's just kinda had a runny nose for the last month since things down here in the South have been growing like crazy.  (like my garden…pictures soon)  After that miserable day of being sorta sick the rest of the week went well. I had a couple routine doc appointments where I had to bring Ella with me last minute because Kyle had some meetings come up at work and all of our friends were out of town at the same time.  But…I shouldn't have worried, Ell was amazing at both appointments.  I should have known.  

Here she is playing at the second appointment I had.  It was a specialty clinic and wasn't very busy and they had a kids play area so Ella was loving it!

We played at the park with some new friends and Ella was having a hay day.  Boy does she love the slides.  She was pretty cute and said to a boy who was in her way, "scuse me"  (excuse me)  It was darling.  
Then after her nap that afternoon, Ella woke up with a fever.  It didn't seem too terrible at first and she slept through the night ok.  Then the next day after her nap she woke up on Fire.  And had a VERY high fever through the night and then it slowly went down the following day.  Of course, it was over the weekend and so we contemplated the ER if we couldn't get it to break.  But we kept a very close eye on her and let her body fight it off.  

This was the morning after we spent the night checking on her a lot.  Kyle took a nap in her room with her sound machine on.  She eventually found her way in there and laid down beside him.  I caught a picture through the monitor.  At one point he was completely covered with his blanket and she was literally lounging on top of him like a recliner with her book.

You can just tell she was feverish in the picture.  She found her paci and I let her keep it and play iPad for a while.  We kept a cool cloth on her.  The only place she would keep it was her tummy.  Poor thing. 

This was the next morning when she still had a fever but it wasn't super high.  She was in better spirits and was still just loving on her dada.  Such a sweet picture. 

And just one more of her being a goof feeding Kyle her water.  She thought it was funny.
