It's been a rough couple of days at our house. I had surgery on Friday to get my tubes tied. Sorry if that's TMI (too much information) for some of you! When I got home, Sophie had a fever and was looking as bad as I felt. We were quite a pair! Thank goodness Grandma and Grandpa were around to take care of us invalids as well as feeding/caring for Greg and Owen! Saturday was a better day, but we had a rough night again when Sophie woke up with a fever again and wouldn't go back to sleep. She ended up in bed with us, awake, for at least 3 hours before finally falling asleep practically on top of me. While awake, she was whispering the alphabet, consoling her doll Lilly ("Shhh. It's okay Lilly," while she patted her back), rubbing my back, doing my hair, and generally flopping around a lot. It was a rough night! But it could have been worse--Owen could have joined us. The highlights of our long weekend were having Grandma and Grandpa here to play (Sophie especially liked playing upstairs with them or in their van in the driveway!), receiving Halloween presents from Florida, and watching more movies than normally allowed. Beauty and the Beast, pronounced "Cutie and the Beast" by Sophie, was the favorite movie of the weekend. Sophie kept wanting to wear her yellow "Belle" dress, which is her dress from Cassie and Gerrit's wedding, while she watched. We are hoping Monday will find us all much better rested and in better shape than we have been the last few days! We also hope to be getting out of the house soon and watching fewer movies!
