The month of February has been a mixture of really great days and some pretty though ones as well. Below I will do a quick recap....
- We started the month out with Noah spiking a high fever and just not feeling like his jolly, passionate ol' self. I took him to the doctor where they orignailly diagnosed him with double ear infections. A few days later he broke out in a rash on his torso a few days later. Upon second glance the doctor then stated he didn't have an ear infection but a classic case of Roseola. I will spare you pictures but he looked pretty pitiful. The rash worked it's way from his torso to limbs and persisted for another 2 weeks! During this time he was a busy boy and cute two molars as well. It was a fun time, what can I say? I'm happy to report that he is all better, done cutting his 1 year old molars and in a much better mood in general. :)
"My dad's name is Matt. He is 4 years old. My dad's favorite thing to do is throw me up in the sky. My favorite thing to do with my dad is play outside!" So sweet!
As it turns out every year, my birthday comes 10 days after valentines day! And this year was a big one, T-H-I-R-T-Y! My parents gave me an early birthday present by sending me, my sister, mom, and grandmother to the Grovepark Inn the weekend before! And due to the timing of things my brother-in-law Jimmy came with us! I'm really glad he came along and was such a trooper during our girls weekend! The long weekend was heavenly (minus the whole strep scenario I mentioned above)! We eat excellent food, spent an amazing day at the spa, talked, laughed, and read good books- all in peace and quite! It was a wonderful time and I'm so thankful for Matt and his parents who made it all possible for me to get away and know that the boys are in good hands!
The last night in my twenties a few of my dear friends surprised me with a girls night out at a local restaurant. I was surprised and felt so blessed by these dear girls who sacrificed time with thier families to celebrate another year & decade in my life!
The next day, my sweet husband surprised me with tickets on the night of my birthday with an out of town concert to Darius Rucker & Brad Paisley (both who I love, though I got to tell you Darius ended up being my favorite)! It was SO. MUCH. FUN. So spontanteous and not something we do often but such a fun overnight adventure & memory!
Throughout the whole month of February my thoughts and prayers have been captivated by my sweet niece. Tomorrow is a big day for her and our family as well. I ask you once again, to please join us in praying for a miracle! I will write more about her soon and how God uses her in my life and what I've learned as I'm repeatedly drawn to the foot of the cross like never before. In the meantime please feel free to follow my sister over at http://www.incuteshoes.blogspot.com/ She writes so candidly and I"m blessed everytime her fingers touch the keyboard! Good night friends!
