We love long weekends!

One thing I will surely miss if I ever leave banking will be the awesome random holidays we get paid for.  Thanks to Monday being Columbus Day, we got to stay home with Kayla for her first teacher inservice day at daycare.  But I am getting ahead of myself...

This weekend's adventure began on Thursday when I got a call from daycare saying that Kayla had spiked a fever of 99.7 earlier in the day.  I picked her up a little early so I could take her to the doctor, but her fever had already broken by that point.  Her temperature was normal at the doc's office, but he prescribed an antibiotic anyway because of her persistent congestion.  So far it doesn't seem to be helping much, but we're only through about half the bottle. 

Friday was a typical day.  Shaun worked early and came home in time for me to head out and come in.  Kayla was fine all day with him if not a little more tired than usual.  She was great for Pepere and Grammy Sue's visit in the evening.  After that, we packed up and went down to the hospital to met Addison for the first time.  What a teeny little cutie!  She barely made a peep the whole time we were there, until Kayla woke up and started crying... but most of the time she looked something like this:

She is so incredibly tiny - Kayla was born nearly a pound heavier, and she seemed itty bitty at the time!  I can't wait for them to be able to play together! 

We designated Saturday as our running all over creation day.  We got up early (when Kayla woke up that is - I think around 6:30 or 7?) and stopped for coffee treats and then made our way to Walmart, BJ's, Babies R Us and the grocery store.  We managed to get home at a reasonable time and just sat and watched football most of the day while I cleaned and did laundry.  Sunday was more football watching, and a lot of cooking.  My mom stopped up for her visit with Kayla too.  Kayla LOVES it when she visits - I think my mom gets more smiles than even I do! 

Then Monday came.  So nice not to have to go in to work!  I was feeling pretty wiped out, so I "encouraged" Kayla to go back to sleep after her morning feeding.  When she continued to fuss in her crib, I took a different tactic and brought her over into bed with us.  Lucky for me, she snuggled right into me and went back to sleep.  I got to sleep in for the first time in ages!  What a great morning.  We did some shopping, trying to find new Christmas stockings for the family, but had no luck.  Not even at the Flower and Craft Warehouse!  Maybe once the Halloween stuff goes away there will be more out.  In the mean time, I'll look around online and see what I can find. 

Today I am especially anxious to get home to my new toy!  I finally broke down and ordered my Nikon D40 last week and it's scheduled to be delivered today.  It was expensive, but I'm really excited to be able to capture some of the moments I may have missed with our old camera.  I'll be sure to post results of that soon!
