My little Allie-girl is sick! She has her first cold. It started Wednesday evening. We were on a playdate with my friend when she started coughing. Now she has a really harsh cough, a lot of congestion, and a very runny nose. I am a little worried, just because Ethan was and is so healthy. He hardly ever gets sick. Allison is only 5 months old! We're just managing her symptoms...lots of saline spray, the humidifier is running, and she is getting lots of snuggles from mommy and daddy. I hope she feels better soon!
Yesterday was a VERY special day. Ethan recently saw The Wizard of Oz movie and he fell in love with it. Naturally, when we saw it was coming to the Fisher, we knew we had to take him. We decided to surprise him with it. We told him we were taking him on a date to his favorite restaurant, Olive Garden. This alone made him so happy. It was his first time out with both of us, without Allison. He was so excited. He was absolutely wonderful at dinner. Very chatty and sweet. He kept telling us how much he loved eating there. As we were finishing up, Jay handed him the tickets. As he read what they said, a small smile creeped up on his face and he was so excited!!
He loved the play. He was mesmorized by it all. He clapped after each song. He especially loved how Toto was played by a real dog. All in all, it was just the perfect night. I try not to set expectations about events because I don't want to be disappointed, but there was not a thing I would change about that night. It was wonderful to see him SO happy.
That's about all. I think I want to start scrapbooking again. I love making memories with my kids so much, I want to be able to look back on them someday and remember it perfectly.
