The crossed ankles kill me.
Little miss got to go to the farm during testimonies the other weekend. She had a great time, as usual. We had a good night at church and Emmy even fell asleep for the night during the last one.
Emmy woke up Tuesday morning with hives... and I just watched her... and then Wednesday she woke up with one eye swollen so I called the doctor to see what I should be doing about them. They wanted her in right away. (*sigh* first non- well child checkup visit...) All I really wanted to know was how much Benadryl I could give her since the package says to ask a doctor if they are under 2 years. Oh well. She's fine now and I have no idea what caused it, poor baby.
Cecily was very disappointed, we were planning on meeting Tirzah at Monkey Joe's that morning for her birthday... but Mary came and picked her up then so all was well. She had so much fun bouncing and sliding and drinking pop with Tirzah.
Emmy and I caught up with them in time for lunch, though she slept through half of it- Benadryl and the trauma of the doctor wore her out. All my pictures of Cecily bouncing are blurry. *grin* She's asked to go back every day since.
Our garden got tilled and we've planted potatoes and onions and peas so far. Cecily helped and Emmy ate dirt. She's also fond of rocks which makes me a little more nervous.
This makes so much noise! I love it!
On Friday Michelle and Nathan brought pizza for supper and then Michelle and I went to watch Fiddler on the Roof at the High School. It was great fun! We grew up listening to the original cast recording of Fiddler on the Roof on my Grandma's old record so I knew pretty much the whole thing by heart. It was very hard not to sing along. So Shelly and I gave Nathan and Bob and Cecily a recap when we got back. Haha. Lucky them. Definitely in my top five musicals, and I still like the Zero Mostel version best, although I have the CD with Isaac Stern on the violin and that's pretty good too.
I can't remember if Cecily was taking a nap, or just busy doing something else, but she was loving getting to play with all the "sprinkles" that Cecily usually takes away from her.
I'm afraid she's going to be a climber. She can get herself onto the hearth... and tries so hard to get up on chairs. She tries to get down facing forwards which doesn't always work out so well.
I dropped the girls off with my Mom (at W-ton's WR sewing) so I could go to the eye doctor. Cecily had a great time with Cliff and Tate and Kyle and the girl in the blue shirt and blue pants and the girl in the gray shirt.... they're twins... and I'm told Emmy enjoyed all the attention she got. Cecily told me later that, "we forgot to sing at grandma's church." Ha.
This is the reason the number on the scale isn't budging....
One good thing about the cold is that I don't feel like spending much time outside so I get more spring cleaning done. But then the girls are stir crazy...
