Rain, Rain, Go Away!!

How depressing the last two days have been for me. Last week sunshine high 80's and now this...the rain can stop now!! I know I sound a little upset but come on it's the end of June. So what to do when your home with no car and its raining. I decided since Mikaila's never really played in the rain, we would. So after dinner and before tub time we went on the back deck. She seemed to like the rain and crawled around on the deck then saw something she could use to pull herself up (the outdoor plug). Then I shut the sliding glass door so I could take a picture of her face smooshed up against it....gotta love those cheeks. She's so funny, she definitly put some sunshine on my gloomy day.

Rest and Relaxation

Aloha!! That is what my past week has consisted of... although the plane ride getting there was another story. Nine month old baby on a plane for 5 hours not much fun. Finally 2.5 hrs later she finally slept. Believe me it was all worth it! This was my first time to Oahu, Hawaii and let me tell you it doesnt matter what island your on it's beautiful!! White sandy beaches, crystal blue water, SUN!! (you know living in OR that makes it worth it right there) We arrived Sunday afternoon and although it is three hours earlier I was ready for bed by 8pm it took some adjusting. Mikaila woke up at 3:30 ready to go but that was not going to happen. I did get her to sleep until 6am but not a minute longer. We had two days of sun, beach, pool and shopping then Wed and Thurs were set aside for the wedding (did I mention why we went to Hawaii, my friend was getting married and I was her matron of honor) The wedding was beautiful, sunset and on the beach. Thursday we went to a Luau it was a lot of fun. Then Friday we rented a car and went to the Polynesian Cultural Center and the Temple grounds (breathtaking) and drove around the island. Saturday we were going to go to Pearl Harbor but we got there a little too late and the lines were out the door and beyond, so we went to a swap market and shopped and then headed to Haunuma Bay for snorkeling. Sunday our last day :( we went to breakfast and Mikaila and me went for a walk and did some last minute shopping while Mikael rested, then we headed to the pool one last time. Our flight didnt leave until 10:50pm which was much better because Mikaila and I slept the entire way! I've been looking forward to this trip for months and sadly it's over....until next time! Mahalo

Whew! that is the feeling I got when Mikaila's temperature finally returned to normal. I gave her Motrin yestarday at 11:30 am and that was it, it never went back up. Crazy virus she had in her system. Today she is back to her sweet self playing, smiling and no more whining!! I didnt think I could take it one more day.

Ok so Mikaila woke up this morning at 4 am with a 102.3 temperature!! Scared to death, because she's never been so hot. I gave her some Motrin, nursed her and put her back to bed. We went to the doctor early this morning and pretty much they have no idea what's wrong. She has no other symptoms (cough, runny nose, sore throat) the dr. said some weird virus is going around were they get high fevers for a few days and then goes away. I thought maybe it could be from teething but she indicated probably not because her temp is too high. So hopefully it's back to normal soon. She has been really cranky and whiny which I totally understand but I want my sweet, happy Mikaila back!!! (poor baby)
