Kenley kept having fevers spiking during the night and remaining warm throughout the days. By Thursday she stopped eating as much since she's so congested she's having trouble breathing while swallowing. I'm trying to suction and give saline drops when I can, but considering it took three doctors to hold her down just to check if she had an ear infection (no joke), you can imagine how squirmy she is and how it's basically impossible to use the nosefrida at all. We headed back to the doctor on Friday since she was as clingy as ever and still running a fever. A new antibiotic and finally she had a good night's rest Friday night. Slowly turned the corner, no more fevers, eating a bit more, and back on the mend.
Before we saw the doctor in the afternoon, we had stopped by our local Gymboree for their Eric Carle collaboration event, read more about it here! Ashlynn got to decorate a hungry caterpillar print out, she's really into coloring in the lines, and then listened to a reading of the story. We didn't stay too long since Kenley was under the weather and was craving snuggles.
Saturday was usual clean up day, we did the usual house pick up and squeezed in some morning yard work. After naps it thunder stormed and we watched Tangled and ordered a pizza. Sunday started with the usual family Panera pit stop and the Husband got the car washed and vacuumed while I cleaned out all the goldfish from the bottom of Ashlynn's carseat. When he got back we reinstalled her seat since it had gotten a bit loose (good to remind everyone to check your that your carseats latch belts and tethers are nice and tight!) and we swapped Kenley's infant carrier and base for her shiny new convertible carseat.
Then we washed off and put together the neighborhood's traveling playset. It first belonged to one neighbor, who gave it away to another, who now bestowed it to us. It could use a nice coat of paint, maybe in the spring, but free is a lot cheaper a fancy swingset that probably wouldn't fit in our yard, so we'll use it for now!
Ashlynn approved. And so did the frog... see him?
Some football, a Wegman's run, and mussels marinara for dinner and the weekend is complete. Excited to have a full week ahead with our new schedule and hopefully a happier baby!
