Joining Jen because that's whats I does.
On Saturday morning, Maggie came down to our bedroom saying there was a black thing on her ear. I immediately knew what it was going to be, but she was on Phil's side of the bed and he looked at her ear exclaiming "What in the world...?" It was a tick, and the size of the one on the LEFT:
(And yes, I'm kicking myself for not taking an actual photo. Bad blogger.)
Needless to say, Maggie is very scared of ticks now and at random times during the day will tell me "I just keep thinking about that tick" as tears well up in her eyes. I feel really bad that we didn't see it for 6 days but it was hidden up in the fold of her ear and it couldn't be seen until it got to the size of a raisin.
Her brothers, remembering stories of when Phil had Lyme Disease and subsequently Bell's Palsy, keep telling Maggie that one side of her face is going to freeze up and so every once in a while she does these cute little nose wiggles and facial stretches while saying "I can still move my whole face!" She will be tested for Lyme Disease in 4 weeks.
Enough about ticks. Cari can probably feel her skin crawling.
Let's talk about weight, which can get my skin crawling.
So I weigh in on Friday mornings at Weight Watchers, and after three weeks of the program and hardcore exercise, I've only lost 4.5 pounds. I think I lost that in one week on other diets. My head knows that a slow and steady approach is better, but my mummy tummy wants fast results. I do love the balanced eating habits WW requires and all the apps make it fun to track. I just wish they would let us weigh in naked because clothes weigh a lot! Can you imagine all the naked ladies walking around WW...I think more men would sign up ;)
Another picture of our niece Lenora, just so you (and by you, I mean me) can get your (my) baby fix:
Also, the lovely Caitlin has shared her good news too, and I'm so happy for them!
I nearly had a mini meltdown last night when I read Grace's post that Dora isn't on Netflix anymore. What the what? The only reason we got Netflix last month was so Xander could watch his favorite TV show (and so we could watch Arrested Development starting on Sunday!). Get it together, Netflix!
|Swiper must be working for Netflix now.|
I loved Rosie's funny breastfeeding post this week, go read it if you haven't already! She's a nursing rockstar. Seriously, when we met at the Air & Space Museum, she was walking around nursing the twins like a champ. Between her and Jamie Jo, I'm seriously delinquent in the milk making business.
I'm really hoping this rainy weather stops by Sunday afternoon so we can enjoy Storyland. We'll enjoy it even if it's overcast and drizzly, but not if it's stormy out. St. Swithin, pray for us!
Have an awesome long Memorial Day weekend everybody! See ya on the flip side!
