21 Months & 1st Ear Infection

Yesterday Kennedy celebrated her 21 month birthday with the sniffles and a cough that woke her several times during the night. Today she woke up from her nap with goopy red eyes and was also tugging on her ear. A trip to the after hours clinic confirmed an ear infection and pinkeye for our angel gir. Her favorite thing to watch right now is Pinocchio which is, "nocchio" and through tears she requested we watch that this evening. We all snuggled up with some goldfish crackers and cuddled but every time she would cough she would cry. Poor little thing! She has been fast asleep since 8:30 and I pray she gets good rest tonight.

We love you so much Kennedy Kate!

October has been a whirlwind! How is there less than 2 weeks remaining? November will be here before we know it and then it will be Christmas! I love this time of year so very much! I am looking forward to every little thing that is coming our way but I must say that I am rather enjoying the here and now right now as well. Tonight Kennedy is spending the night at her grandparents house and it is amazing what all a mommy can get accomplished without the busy hands of a toddler undoing everything that is done. I have vacuumed, mopped, finished AND put away all laundry, fresh sheets on beds, cleaned stove top, started dishwasher, cleaned bathrooms, organized business receipts...whew. Now I am relaxing with my late night cup of coffee and listening to some Explosions in the Sky: Your Hand in Mine

"Be still and know that I am god!" Psalm 46:10 Is the verse that comes to me when I listen to that song. Do yourself a favor and listen to it and close your eyes for 8 minutes. 


I hope that this weekend blesses you to the utmost!
