Well, Ardyn's fever finally went away on Thursday night late. We stayed home Friday just in case, and because she had thrown up twice, and because she was extremely fussy and didn't want a pacifier, nipple, or anything else near her mouth. Friday ended up being especially nice, her attitude wasn't too bad, and as long as we kept her busy, she didn't fuss much unless she was hungry or tired. We went for a walk since it was 54 degrees, and walked to the cafe for a late lunch, but both Evan and I ordered food that wasn't very tasty, so we ended up eating our french fries and leaving the tenderloin and gyro wrap on out plates. We finished our walk and Ardyn napped in the stroller. Saturday I got up and got Ardyn and I dressed, fully intending to take her to see the Easter Bunny at the mall, but then we realized it was pretty cold out again, and windy, and snowing (although not sticking) and so we just took a big nap and messed around at home. I started out showered and dressed and by lunchtime I was wearing a t-shirt, no bra, my unerwear, and covered in applesauce and drool. Just how Saturday should be, eh?
Today looks to be another lazy day. Lazy being an objective word, since I have already washed diapers, jeans, cleaned the kitchen, loaded the dishwasher, let the dogs out twice, and put the baby down for her morning nap. This morning when Ardyn woke up at 6:30 I decided that this was MY day to sleep in. At 7:38am I took her to Evan, said "Here you go, it's my turn to sleep in, she needs her diaper changed, and wake me up at 9:30 when it's time for her to nurse" and then went back to bed, with earplugs in, and ocean waves on my iPod a foot from my bed. That was a nice change of pace. Of course he woke me up at 9 because she was fussy, but even a couple of extra minutes of sleep is fabulous.
