Livin' Our Life

I have not been in the blogging mood over these past couple of days. Maybe because we have just been livin' our life and enjoying the 80 degree weather.

I've mentioned before how I love the heat and sun. I did not miss winter one bit.

As for livin' out life, this week did not start out so smooth.

We were excited to open the pool. It is always a fun time. It makes us feel like summer is right around the corner, even if it is a couple of months before we can actually swim. The blue pool is also a lot prettier than the blue tarp that covers it in the winter months.

However, while getting the pool ready, the liner ripped. Nick jumped in and patched it. It took him a couple of hours before he felt warm again, and the patch did not stick because the tear was so big.
(I like how you can see mine and Millie's shadow in this picture.)

So this means a new liner.

Nick has spent a lot of the week talking to pool companies and having people come (and waiting on people to come) look at it to give us estimates.
So for now, this is our view of the pool.
Then Tuesday morning we went to the pediatrician's office because Millie looked like this.
It ended up being an allergic reaction to some antibiotics. We now know she is allergic to penicillin. The rash did not seem to bother her one bit. The steroids she has to take to make the rash go away is another story. Let's just say she hasn't napped in 3 days, we got called out of the nursery on Wednesday night for the first time ever, and sometimes she cries regardless of what I try to do to help her.

But today she looked like this.
Much better.
Much happier.

And because of the nice weather it is hard to do any inside work.
This is about 1/4 of the laundry that is done. There is still so much more that I haven't touched. I have to do it soon, or we will run out of clean clothes very soon.

Millie found a sock in the pile that she did not want to part with.
 Don't worry. It was from the clean pile.

She held on to that sock for at least 20 minutes. 

She eventually dropped the sock and found a diaper.
Don't worry again. It was a clean unused one.
This week hasn't been all rashes and spending money on pool liners.

I did start reading The Hunger Games.
And I like it. I'm not done with it yet, but I think I'm going to love it when I finish.
I love stories that last more than one book. Harry Potter, Twilight, Narnia. All of these have been favorites of mine.
We have been strolling and playing outside a lot this week.
I hope it never gets cold again.
We sat outside for hours today. 
 She had on SPF 100.
Then we shaded her with an umbrella.

Have a good Sunday. 
We will probably be outside again.


  1. I am so glad Millie's better. She is so adorable, and she must be teething. I bet the sock/diaper feel great against her gums!

  2. p.s. Her swimsuit is the cutest thing I've ever seen!
