Happy Weekend


Well, our beautiful summer of perfection took a slight nose dive for a day or two. Lily developed an eye infection -- woke up Tuesday morning with her eye gooped shut crying "Momma, I can't see! I can't open my eye! It hurts reedy bad!" So, I started her on some eyedrops, but it didn't seem to be working fully because her other eye was swollen and red the next morning. So, Wednesday we were off to the Pediatrician's office. Her doctor was AMAZED at the huge change in Lily since her last visit. So big, so talkative, so happy to be there...who'd a thunk? Anyway, she's on antibiotics now and is definitely on the mend. We are going to visit my inlaws this weekend for fun in the pool and two graduation parties. It will be a great time, so I'm glad Lil will be up for the "party"! She informed me today that she is ready to go swimming "all by myself, underwater with my goggles"...(she swam with a little girl on Monday who was doing this.) We shall see if it really happens. She hasn't been real fond of the water on her face yet, so this would be a huge step for her. But, we were practicing in the tub tonight and then Jay went out to Target to buy her some swim goggles just in case. She had to try them on immediately. Pretty silly, eh?


So, we spent a couple of days inside trying out all of her new birthday toys (a giant puzzle, lots of great books, clay creations, and more) and just relaxed as much as a 3 yr old is capable of. We're ready to head back outside tomorrow for more fun in the sun. Happy weekend, friends!

Your daughter is always so sweet to read her little words. And love the photos, the last one where she's stretched out is my favorite.

Mommy Spice said...

Oh, I love the goggle pictures. Glad her eyes are getting better.

Spicy Girl desperately wants goggles and a snorkel.

You guys have a great weekend! I love her goggles and hope that she is comfortable swimming with her face underwater. That is a big milestone.

Happy weekend to you too. Hope Lily's eyes are ok! Talk with you soon!

Have a great time at the pool party! I wonder if sometimes all it takes to try new things is seeing someone you can relate to (even if a little older) doing it, and then thinking, Hey, I can do it to! Of course, you have to be ready, but how cool that the other little girl may have given Lily the nudge of confidence she needed.

I'm so glad Lily is on the mend. Eye infections are no fun!!

She looks so cute in her goggles. I hope she has a BLAST in the pool!

Have a great time this weekend. It sounds fun!

Beckyb said...

Oh yucky!!! I am glad she is feeling better though - that is never fun!!

The Shocks said...

I'm glad that she is on the mend. We were swimming today at Gwen's. hannah did not like the water in her face. She did pretty good. I was very pleased with her.

Panda-Mom said...

Yikes! Several months ago I paid almost $60 for a teeny tiny bottle of eye drops for PG! Hope things get better! ; )

My friend had to go to the clinic yesterday for the same eye thing. She looked so sad and was in some pain. Hope Lily is feeling better soon.

Glad Lily's eyes are getting better, the goggles will be a big hit. Jennifer loves hers, she wouldn't put her head right under at first, just put the goggles against surface of the water. Daddy would throw money or dive toys to the bottom so she could look at the treasures.Before we knew it she was right under like a fish!
Have a terrific weekend.

Diana said...

Lily is such a sweetie, and quite a trooper!
BTW I tagged you.

Beth and Shayna said...

Bummer that she was sick. So was Shayna, I guess there is something in the air. I hope you all had a great weekend.
