Baby Update

Amelia had her second illness to date this week. She came down with a fever and the fussies on Saturday which continued to Tuesday. She didn't have any other symptoms besides a high fever (as high as 104 degrees) at night. Her doc said that a virus was going around that was only displayed as a high fever, followed by a rash. The rash was on her forehead and looked like a spot of rosecea. I would have missed it completely if he hadn't mentioned it.

It wasn't too bad as baby illnesses go. Although, I have to admit a 104 temp is pretty scary in the middle of the night. Her whole body felt positively toasty: as if we had left her by the fire a bit too long.

Amelia loves to look at her reflection these days. She giggles when she sees herself. She also giggles when she sees Booda, Bella, Gracie, Zena or Blanquita. But the dogs really make her giggle. Its pretty funny to see. The dog walks by, and voila! A laughing baby.

Booda has figured out that Amelia is a like a slot machine but instead of money, she dispenses food. He waits patiently at her feet while she is in the high chair; she either drops her food or throws it. It is a win-win situation for the poochie.

Long Overdue: More Pictures

Ok, as with previous picture posts, these are not in order. The top two pictures are from the 6th of October when Dad, Susan & Melz babysat so Erik and I could go out on the town for our anniversary. Melz was in town for her Fall break.

The third picture is from a barbeque we had at the house in August on Amelia's six month birthday. It was all of our friends, their babies & partners that we met through First Weeks. It was a ton of fun. Pictured are Jenn & Chloe, me & Amelia, and Erin & Parker.

The last picture is from late August (I think) on a hike that we went on to a place which will remain nameless because I can't recall the name. Needless to say we did hike, it was very steep, lots of fun and we spent most of the time hanging out eating. That's my kind of hike! Pictured are me & Amelia, Valerie & Kai, Darcy & Clara, and Danielle & Abe. Jenn (and Chloe) took the picture and Rochelle and Gavino were also along.
