I took this picture of Amelia this morning. She loves to water her garden and it's growing. Our cucumber basket is looking pitiful. I'm not sure what's wrong with it. The color of the leaves are fading and it looks like something has eaten part of the leaves. A rabbit or squirrel took one of our big, red strawberries so we've sprinkled cayenne pepper around the garden. We were told that would keep them away. We'll see if that works. We need some gardening tips! :)
We received these pretty flowers today from my sweet friend, Dina. I love tulips!! Made my day.
When I first came home from the hospital, I took a shower and got in bed and Amelia asked, "Mama, why are you going back to bed?" I thought right then "this is going to be a long 6 weeks." LOL Now that it has been a few days, she's used to me needing to rest after being up for a while. She brings games to my bed to play. I beat her at Hello Kitty Memory yesterday. It's one of her favorites and she always beats me. Maybe she let me win because I'm sick?
This was Amelia at nap time today. She has been sleeping on a cot beside my bed since I came home from the hospital. So sweet.
Aunt Joy took Sydney to the doctor today. I'm glad I thought to add her name to the list of people that can take her before having my surgery. Sydney has been acting puny over the last week. She finished her antibiotic for ear infection on April 20th. She always seems to feel better for a few days and then stops sleeping, won't eat/drink, etc. I hate that I couldn't go with her but I can't drive and I'm still healing from my surgery. Aunt Joy took good care of her. We're being sent to an ENT next week. I knew this day was coming - we were just waiting for her to get the # of ear infections needed for us to get the referral. She seems to be just like Amelia in the ear infection department. Tubes are in our future and I'm okay with that. I remember dreading it for Amelia but it ended up being the best thing ever. She didn't have one ear infection when she had those tubes.
The only thing Sydney has agreed to drink today is CFA lemonade. So we're giving her as much as she wants!
Love to all,
