Saturday morning we went to breakfast and then went to Target. We needed to get some summery clothes for our Mexico trip and Lindsay said they had the best toddler bathing suits. She was right. We got the girls each a new suit and I can't wait to scoop up more of them. We took a walk around the block to get some energy out from the girls and then put them down for their naps.
After naps, we took another walk, but this time the girls were in their wagon all bundled up. After a walk, we gathered everything up and headed to my sisters house for dinner. Way back in September, they had a housewarming party. Well the girls were super cranky and we didn't get to stay for very long. It was a total bummer because they smoked a ton of ribs and had lots of yummy food there. Well we finally made up for missing most of their party and went over to their house Saturday evening for a rib feast. They smoked ribs, made roasted red potatoes and asparagus. The girls dined on mac n cheese.
We had so much food. Seriously, I couldn't stop eating the ribs. Sooooooo good. We drank some wine and chased the girls around. They were getting into everything, but had the best time.
We came home, put the girls to bed, at 8 pm which hasn't happened in a long time. We watched some shows and headed to bed early. But the girls had other ideas. Their coughs got worse and they were up all night. Sutton's cough was the worse out of the two and Avery was super concerned for her sister. So anytime Sutton would have coughing fits, Avery would cry out for us to check on her sister. This went on ALL night. We maybe slept 2 hours and that is being generous.
Sunday we had breakfast with my in-laws and brought the girls home to relax. My in-laws came over to spend some time with the girls and to check on their well being. I ran to the grocery store and to the children's store to get another paci that my kids can't live without. We are so close to weaning them from the paci (they never have it at daycare), but just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Ugh.
The girls took a short nap and we cuddled on the couch watching The Break Up (on tv so it wasn't too bad). Soon it was time for dinner and bath time for the girls. After baths, we hung out for awhile before doing a breathing treatment and putting the girls to bed. There was a lot of coughing from them, but not nearly as bad as the night before.
Post nap snuggles are the best
I made Rory and I dinner while he packed. Yes, Rory is out of town for work and I am single mommying it this week and I am super nervous with how the girls colds are progressing. Ugh. Not a good time for Rory to go on a trip.
We started to watch the last episode of Parenthood, but the internet kept messing up and wouldn't stream. So we watched the season finale of The Affair and went to bed shortly after.
The first part of the night, the girls were up a lot, but then they slept very well after.
But this momma is tired and hoping their colds don't get worse. We may have a pediatrician appointment in our near future. Lord help me.
Hope you all have a good start to your week!
