Well, our baby is almost one. We celebrated Saturday evening at our house. All of our friends and family joined us in the celebration. Kendall thoroughly enjoyed her cake and the big kids were able to swim (don't ask me how...that water was freezing!) Kendall was showered with gifts. Among them, a tray for her Child Rite chair, a special needs swing with a cover for outside,(we still haven't figured out how to use the straps, but we may be able to strap her Special Tomato chair in it) a beautiful bracelet, light up toys and musical toys, and enough designer clothing to sink a battleship. My friends, mother-in-law, and sister definitely share in my love of clothes! And now Kendall has a bathing suit for each day of the week this summer! Kendall kind of just stared at her "smash" cake, but once Grandaddy put his finger in the icing and put it on her lips, she was a hooked! I didn't get the greatest pictures since I had so many other things going on, but my friends got some good ones, so I will post them when I receive them!
I had big plans of creating a "year in review" today with pictures, music, and commentary. However; at some point during the weekend, I must have come in contact with something I'm allergic to, because I broke out in hives yesterday morning on my hands. By the evening, it spread to my elbows, and this morning, I was covered head to toe with red splotches that itch like crazy. SO.... my Sunday has consisted of driving to the clinic, discovering that since I'm STILL breastfeeding, I can't take anything, and soaking in an oatmeal tub followed by applying anti-itch cream over and over again. I love my life. I don't have the patience for uploading pictures right now. Her birthday isn't until tomorrow, so I guess technically I still have some time!
Its been a very lazy Sunday around here. This week was tough with Kendall being sick, then Justin and I getting the same stuff. Hopefully we will catch up on our rest in time to start all over again next week. Kendall has a full week with therapy. We also have a Nutritionist coming to talk to us. Tuesday she will get her one year immunizations. And I am going to start the much anticipated wean during the day of Kendall from breast milk to whole milk. I'm not sure either one of us are ready for the night time nursing to cease just yet. Please keep us in your prayers.
