Thanks for all the sweet comments... Little Fidget is doing so much better. Antibiotics + Serious Breathing Treatments + lots of TLC = More Sleep and Less Coughing, which roughly translates into: YAY! We're all getting some sleep and our little one is starting to act like her quirky pint-sized self again!
Evidently, she is pretty asthmatic (which comes as no surprise, since both Mommy and Big Sister suffer as well), and that is what was triggering the repeated pneumonia. The Singulair we had her on was not preventing it, so we also had to change her daily medication and increase the number of daily albuterol treatments while she's sick. So there you have it. More than you wanted to know, no doubt!
Last weekend we made Christmas Cupcakes. Just enough for the 4 of us, since we knew no one else would want to eat anything baked in our germy house. Yellow cake and colored cream cheese frosting with sugar... Mmmmm. Tasty.
And Big Sister finished her pink sparkly tree project:
I love how she matched the sequins with the pin color. We had so much fun stringing the beads for the garland. It looks so sweet in her bathroom. I don't recommend trying to put glitter on styrofoam. Maybe paper would have worked better? I sure do like this version. But we have officially jumped on the Martha Stewart Glitter Love Train and we're hooked. And it wasn't as messy as I thought it would be. Especially since we lined a lipped cookie sheet with foil before we started. It made cleanup a cinch!
I've got a couple Christmas gifts completed, but I'll have to wait until after the holidays to post them so as not to spoil the surprise. I'm also just itching to try to bake some cakes in jars, so we'll see if we can make that happen, too. (I'm thinking the germ factor would be minimal there. And the cute factor is through the roof.)
Merry Christmas to you all... Here's to warm and happy memories with family and friends!
