Illness, injury, and the rest of our crazy life!

I've been a little busy and haven't had much time to blog. Sorry to all of my 4 followers!! Ha! Today, Piper woke up pretty cranky and I just thought she was still tired but it ends up my baby has her first bout of strep throat! See her puny self below. She and I did a lot of snuggling today. I'm so glad this didn't happen next week during Christmas because... She was terribly sick over Thanksgiving. This is the only picture I took of her on the day after thanksgiving. She was miserable because she had a horrible cold. We thought it was another ear infection and Michael's mom called her doctor and he graciously met us at his clinic, even though it was closed. No ear infection!! She and I slept together every night during that holiday. (notice she is wearing the same outfit in her two sick pics! I did not plan that one!)

She was feeling much better the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We celebrated w/my family that day at my sister's home. Here's our little turkey!
Fast forward to December 9th and while playing in the church nursery she had another run-in with her nose! She got a pretty bad carpet burn on her nose after tripping on something. It looked worse than the picture shows but it is looking almost back to normal now!
But, in between illness and injury, we have been doing really well! Piper is loving to play dress up especially with my wearables! We have gotten to play with friends and go to Christmas gatherings. I even got to go to Texas for an entire weekend with my sister with no kids!!
See--she knows how to have fun!
