Well we just spent a few hours at the pool this morning before heading to Aunt Kelly''s for a picnic. Caileigh swam great and did a few cannonballs off the diving board. Keira and John stayed home, neither feeling 100%. Then Keira got a red rash on her legs that looked itchy so we had to give her some benadryl and call the dr. Hope it goes away so we can avoid the ER on a holiday!
What a great Saturday to open the pool! Caileigh started asking what time we were going the minute she woke up. You can tell she was excited b/c she didn''t even want to come to the MALL with me! Which was fine b/c I had little time and much to return!
The weather was gorgeous and Caileigh was like an old fish back in water! She went right to the diving board and jumped over and over. She & John stayed until 6 pm and she had a nice sunburn to show for it (grrr!). Keira on the other hand is still fighting a cough and runny nose so she wasn''t thrilled with the water until some time passed and then she was mad I made her get out! She took quite a nap when we got home. Yay for summer!
Well poor Keira can''t catch a break. Her cough isn''t getting any better and she''s spiking fevers again so off to the drs she went. Respiratory infection so another round of antibiotics for her. Hopefully it will get rid of her cough once & for all!
Another big day for Caileigh - her gymnastics show at Jewarts! The whole gang was coming so we actually had to get a babysitter for the first time for Keira! Caileigh did great doing all her tumbling moves to perfection, and was thrilled to see everyone after the show. We celebrated with ice cream of course!
Keira did well with the babysitter except by the time we got home she was up all hot & sweaty with another fever so we''ll see what tomorrow brings...
Today was Caileigh''s big play at preschool. I didn''t know what to expect since she didn''t tell us much about it but I was sure glad I went! She did great. They sang about 5 songs and did a bunch of polish, italian and american dances. The play was about going from Pittsburgh to Italy and Poland where the class'' pen pals live. Caileigh spoke in the microphone twice (!) and wasn''t nervous at all - I was so proud of her!! We have it all on video !
Good news that Keira is finally starting to feel better and seems back to her old self!
A nice nite out last night for John & I- first in awhile it seems and then golfing today (thanks both sets of Grandparents!). Gorgeous day to be out on the course while Caileigh & Keira reveled in all the attention of their aunts and grandparents!
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms especially mine whom we miss very much. Mom would have been so proud of Caileigh today. She braved the really cold weather, got up really early and did the Race for the Cure. Her 4th year "racing" or (5th if you count in utero). Keira had a cold/ cough again so she and John stayed home and got brunch ready for everyone at the house. It was a wonderful morning despite the cold, perfect way to honor moms!!
My wonderful husband made me a photo book of the girls which I love and Caileigh made me a book! Yes it''s called "My Cat" - she wrote and illustrated it! You can be sure we''ll save that for a long time!
Well Keira was supposed to have her first music class today but her teacher never showed up! Bummer! Caileigh is getting ready for her gymnastic show at the end of the month. We are all very excited to see her perform!
Happy Birthday Joey!! And good luck Aunt MK-- we''ll miss you in Massachusetts!
Well Keira''s (16 mos today) new favorite word is "bubble" which she says constantly. That and "dank you". She also finally has another tooth popping out on the bottom and I think one on the top. Cute as a button!
And it was Caileigh''s second week at soccer and she did great! Check out the videos of her at practice and on the field!
What a fun playdate we had today with all our friends and their kids! Colin, Caileigh, Vivian, Jack, Corinne, Mitchell, Carter, Maeve, Keira, Tyler & Chloe (I hope I got them all). All the kids got along great and can''t wait to get together again. The highlight was when Jack decided to eat lunch in just his underwear!!
