This week we all took turns being homebound...I had parent teacher conferences and a hair appointment 3 out of 5 nights so Daren was on daddy duty at home...I really treasure my time with them after I have to go without seeing them so much! It was hard to get home and Haddie was already in bed sleeping. On Friday Danika woke up with a nasty cough, but no fever and was in good spirits so she went to daycare...when I picked her up Friday afternoon she was a little lathargic and by supper time had developed a fever of 102 :/ Saturday was Aunt Lori's baby shower and unfortunately, we had to miss it and take Ms. D to urgent care... The Hadster got to enjoy the festivities though! Thanks Grandma Lynn and Auntie Lisa for letting her tag along. The Dr. determined that Danika had some symptoms of croup:/ So she gave us 1 dose of the steriod used to treat it and thought she'd be on the mend because it wasn't too severe yet. It was wierd to have no Daren or Haddie home, and even though we were bummed to miss Lori's shower, we did enjoy a day stuck in the house in our Jammies together, just mom and Danika:)
In other news from the week....Haddie turned 7 months old! I know I say it all the time, but how does time go so quickly?!?!?
Here are some pics from the week...
Our big eater... Attempting to use her spoon! She managed to get it to her mouth (upside down with out any food on it of course, but it's a start:) She is very bored with baby food and we've started solids much faster with her than Danika- although everything this time around is happening sooner... She sits, crawls, stands, and has even taken a few steps while holding onto her play table. Seriously, this kid thinks she's 9-10 months old! We are going to be in trouble with this one:)
Sweetest thing of the week...Cousin Chloe (Aunt Stacy & Uncle David too!) dropped off some chicken dumpling soup for Danika:)
She decided she didn't like the dumplings, but enjoyed the broth, so why not eat supper with a spoon?!?! :)
Trying to keep it fun while we were quarantined inside...window markers:)
We took advantage of the warmer weather and feeling a little better today and went outside for a few minutes to play in the leaves and do chalk...
Do you like Daddy with pink hair?!?!
She decided she just wasn't into napping today- amazingly, she wasn't even that much of a grump, but you could definitely tell she was tired...especially when she carried her pillow and all her blankies into the living room and plopped on the chair to relax!
7 month photo shoot of Ms. H....
As I mentioned above, this girl is constantly surprising us...As long as her belly is full, she is smiling nonstop. She's on the move in so many ways! She is beginning to make more sounds...she just started 'mama' and 'dada' sounds so if you can imagine, Daren and I are constantly encouraging our favorite of the two:) She figured out how to 'tap' her hands/fingers together (I'm not quite ready to call it a clap) but when she gets happy this is what she does!
I don't feel like sitting still for you mom...I just want to stand...
And reach for the camera...
Of course Danika never wants to be left out of the monthly pictures:)
She's attempting to show you 2 fingers (for age 2-although hard to believe she's closer to 3 than 2 now!)
And the latest comparison....Danika and Haddie at 5, 6 and 7 months. SO crazy to me how two children who are the same gender with the same parents can look so completely different! Especially since I tend to think Daren and I even look somewhat similar!
