Haunted Houses

With Halloween just around the corner I have been thinking about past years. My brother - that was 3 years older than me - decided to be sweet one year. This was a rare occurance lol but he decided to take me to a haunted house with him and his buddy. I was about 14 so they were around 17. We went & I of course was squealing all the way through. Well we get to this one room that has the chainsaw massacre in it. The guy holding the chainsaw rubbed it against my brothers friends leg. He looked down and saw a fake leg laying in the floor and he started screaming bloody murder and ran through the rest of the house!!! Of course he was totally embarrassed when we got out there and was laughing our butts off at him!!! Ah to be young again.

Greek Festival

We had a blast at the festival. Anna loved the Greek music and the dancers!!! She was simply mesmerized by the dancers. She even stood in front of me and tried to mimick what they were doing. It really brought tears to my eyes (I know I am pathetic). I don't know what came over me. Maybe it was the fact that my baby is growing up or something I just don't know.

It took Anna forever to get over her Roseolla. She finally went back to daycare Wednesday. Which means I had to go back to work yesterday. Let me tell you after being with my baby for almost a full week without work I was NOT ready to come back! I just keep counting down the minutes until Friday afternoon.

My poor baby!

So yesterday I got a call at work that I needed to pick up Anna. She has a fever of 101.6. So I dash over to get her and bring her home. We spend a restless night with temps up to 102.5 under the arm. I get up and call the doc to set an appt. Take her in at 9:30 and find out it is just a viral infection. Causing crazy temps and a terrible rash of sorts all over her body. So we get home and give her some Motrin and she nurses and then naps. She wakes up and her lip is blowing up like a balloon!!! I am freakin out - this has never happened before and it isn't supposed to happen to my baby. I call the doctors office and it is closed for lunch so the nurse says hold ice on it for 20 minutes haha have any of you ever tried to hold ice on a 14 month olds lip - not going to happen. So we hang in there and go visit our neighbor cause I was freakin out and we visit for a while and Thank the Good Lord her lip started going down. Unfortunately her eye is still a little swollen but it isn't bad. I hope that it will go down soon. Her fever did break during her 2.5 hour nap and the rash seems to be gone. Having a sick baby is no fun!!!

First time blogger

Well this is my first blog ever!!! So bare with me while I adjust to the life of a blogger. My name is Candace & I have a daughter that is 14 months old. She is the light of my life. I waited a very long time to have her. My DH and I have been married for 10 years now. Patience has never been my strong suite so I don't know how I managed to wait that long for the best part of my life lol.

Here she is: Anna Sophia
