We're still alive...I think

So you thought we fell off the face of the earth?  Close, but not quite. We are all healthy again and Sweet Pea is almost done with the rash, but it's still lingering as things often do with her. Her appetite is back and for that we are thankful. The switch to Good Start Soy Plus formula seems to be going smoothly and I haven't noticed the horrible gas in the past few days. At least it isn't as bad as it was right before the switch! I don't ever want my sweet little girl to be stinking up a room so badly again!

Yesterday morning we were getting ready for work and to take Sweet Pea to daycare when Daddy started cracking up. I had to come see what was so funny and this is what I saw:

Somehow she got the foam B cutout over her head and was having a grand old time. She is a silly little girl and just loves those foam floor pieces!

Here are some photos from the 4th of July. We went down to our local park that has a live band and then does a great fireworks display. Her bedtime is 7pm and so we put her down at my sister's house until we were ready to walk down a little before 8pm. She slept all the way down to the park in the stroller and when we arrived at the park the noise woke her up. For never being up past her bedtime, she wasn't sure what was going on. We took her over to where the band was playing and the cousins were having a blast dancing and Sweet Pea was enjoying herself.

Then it was time to go hang out on our blankets and get ready for the fireworks show to start.

The fireworks are launched about 200-300 ft away from our blanket so they are going off right over us and it is a great show. It's loud and we weren't sure how Sweet Pea would handle it, but she did wonderful! Was interested in the lights for just a short bit and then was happy just playing with the blanket and tarp that we were sitting on for the remainder of the show. She fell asleep as soon as we started walking back. It was a great night!


  1. so happy to hear she is feeling better and you all had a great fourth :)

  2. Sounds like a great night!!! You deserved one after all the sickness! Hope your switch the formula contiues to go well and that she can switch off it soon enough. You can't have someone named Sweet Pea making a stink LOLOLOL Thanks for sharing the pics. They're GREAT!

  3. How funny that she got that cutout over her head! Silly girl!

  4. Glad you are all feeling better.

  5. i grew up going to that fireworks show! we should totally get together next year over there...we decided this year we are too old for the Strand crowd...and for the cold sitting out on the sand.
