I love comparisons (I wish I could put them side-by-side on here). So, here she was today (almost 11 months old).
Well, this time we had some real snow accumulation. I took Haley out around lunch and she tolerated the cold for a minute. She then got really upset for some reason, so we went back inside. I decided to wait until Scott got home to try and take her back out for more pictures. She liked watching the snow from the windows though.
This is her reaction when we first went out.
Haley has been going through a lot lately. This is one reason I have not blogged in a while. Two weeks ago, she had a terrible cold. She finally recovered from that and I thought we would be okay for a while. Then a week ago, she quit wanting solid foods. At first, I thought she was just being picky, but as the week went on, she quit eating the things that I know she likes. Then, she quit wanting her formula. I took her to the doctor thinking that it may be an ear infection or something. He wasn't able to find anything and told us to just keep watching her. We did and after a few more terrible days of not eating, she finally started eating again. The only thing I can figure is that she had a stomach bug. She finally has started eating like she used to. I'm SO relieved!! I was absolutely scared to death when she wouldn't eat. As a nurse, I had the worst case scenario in my head. I was about to drag her back to the doctor when she started doing better, thank goodness. Now that we have gotten past that, she has spiked a fever. It just happened tonight, so I gave her some Tylenol, a bath, and lots of fluids and put her to bed. I'm anticipating a rough night tonight. If she isn't better tomorrow, I'll take her back to the doctor. I sure hope it's not anything serious!
Here are some updates on the things we have been up to since my last post.
For Haley's first birthday, we are doing a ladybug theme because she has always loved the book Ten Little Ladybugs. My friend Lee Ann bought her a GIANT ladybug and went ahead and gave it to her. It is as big as she is and she loves it!
I finally got her standing and taking a step on video. It's not easy because she doesn't last long.
