I was starting this post last night and got interrupted. Sadie was asleep on the couch next to me and she was coughing in her sleep. A strange gurgly (is that a word) sound was coming from her. Then, she lifted her head and threw up all over the couch. Lovely! Let me just say she had raspberries and blueberries for dinner and leave it at that! I picked her up and tried to clean up a bit and then called my folks. She seemed OK, no fever or other symptoms. Then, about 30 minutes later, she threw up again; on the other side of the couch. I am not making this up! I asked my mom to come over because I knew at this point that Sadie wasn't going to be able to go to school the next day. So, while my mom was on her way, Sadie threw up again. This time, on the floor. My poor baby. She threw up one more time last night and then hasn't done so again. Thank goodness for that! She finally fell asleep and I took her up to my room around midnight. She slept the entire night but when she woke up, she had a fever. I gave her some Tylenol and went to work. My mom watched her all day. She ate a little breakfast and then took a good nap in the morning. Later, she had some lunch and no more fever. She had a pretty decent dinner and fell asleep around 9pm. She's still asleep and I'm praying we are through this.
Here are the pictures I was going to post last night. I got something in the mail that had packing peanuts in the box and Sadie thought they were the best thing ever. They kept her attention for quite a while until she thought it would be fun to dump them out, and I put them away. I know, I'm a party pooper!

I was saddled with a horrible migraine today that didn't respond to my migraine medication. Thank goodness my mom was here to take care of Sadie. I laid around most of the day, feeling nauseous and crappy. I finally took some Aleve around 4pm and by 5:30pm I was finally feeling better. My mom snapped these pictures of Sadie earlier today. What a silly girl.

On December 4th, one of my favorite children's stores (Peek) had an event. They were going to have wine, nibbles and raffles and a portion of their profits were going to charity. So, my mom and I decided to check it out. It was really cold out so I bundled Sadie in this darling one piece I got for $7 at the Gap. It wasn't too crowded when we got there so I put Sadie down and let her walk around. A short while later I noticed that they had a photographer and he was taking pictures of Sadie. Well, she was in rare form that night. Posing and hamming it up for the camera. I got the photographer's card before we left and ended up buying all of the pictures he took. Can you stand how cute she was? Please note the chocolate on her lip. She loved the cookies!
We are wiped out. Yesterday took a lot out of us! I tried to sleep in, but Sadie was up early, climbing all over me and talking. We hung out around the house and played with Sadie's Disneyland treats for most of the day. She LOVED her Minnie Mouse dress. Once we put it on her, over her other clothes, she wouldn't let us take it off. She looks adorable in it!
Around 3ish we went out to the market to get some stuff for dinner. Sadie fell asleep on the way to the market and slept though the entire shopping trip, until the time came to pay. Unfortunately, that was Sadie's only nap today. Let me tell you, it was not enough for me. She was a pistol the rest of the day. Whiny and into everything.
When we got back from the market, we started dinner and then decided to try to get Sadie a haircut up the street. We had to wait a little while because we didn't have an appointment, but it was totally worth it. We liked this salon a lot better than the kids' salon we went to last time. The stylists were great with the kids, they had dvd players at each station and the place was really clean. Sadie was such a good girl. She sat in the rocket chair and played with the steering wheel, looked at herself in the mirror and watched the other kids. They put a little flower in her hair when they were done. Her hair looks so much better now. It was long and straggly in the back and now she has a cute bob!
After her haircut, they gave her a lollipop; her first! She put it right in her mouth and ate the entire thing. She was drooling like crazy. Too funny!
We had a great time at Disneyland. We got there around 1pm and stayed until after 11pm. We got to go on the new and improved It's a Small World and Sadie adored it. She was swaying and clapping through the ride.
Sadie still loves the carousel. She rode it 4 times!
Dumbo was still fun too!
Y and I went on a few other rides together while my mom watched Sadie. Then she fell asleep around dinner time. She slept through dinner, some shopping and ice cream and woke up as we were shopping on Main Street. Once again, Sadie scored! She got a Minnie Mouse dress, a book, tub toys, a couple of tee shirts and a sweatshirt, a toy cell phone, some bracelets and some candy. Sadly, she slept through most of the shopping, so she had no idea what she scored until the next day!
Sadie woke up as we were checking out at our final stop in the park. Then she was awake! She stayed awake the entire drive home and up until I put her in bed with me and told her to go to sleep. Thankfully, she did pretty much right away.
We'll be going back again in about a month since Y got a 2fer ticket which gets her into California Adventure for free. And now that I have an annual pass, we'll be heading down frequently, though probably not for 10 hours at a time again. Boy was I aching at the end of the night!
Here are a couple more cute pictures from the day.

So, we got rained out yesterday. Since my friend Y had taken the day off to come with us, we decided to all hang out anyway. And where do you go when it is raining? To the mall, naturally. Y came over and Sadie, my mom, Y and I all went out to lunch. Sadie is still so good about eating out. She gets a little impatient when she is done, but I can usually keep her distracted until everyone is done. We had a yummy lunch and Sadie's kid's meal came with a hot fudge sundae!
She took a couple of bites, indicated to us that it was cold, and then was done. What kind of child doesn't scarf a hot fudge sundae?
After lunch we went to the Beverly Center. Sadie made out like a bandit thanks to grandma. She got a bunch of cute things from Gymboree and I bought her some little pink Uggs. She liked them so much she ended up wearing them out of the store.
Then we went to Macy's where Y and I both got new sunglasses. I needed them because Sadie destroyed my Dolce & Gabbana ones. Bummer. I replaced them with a very affordable pair that, if broken, will not make me cry. The sales guy joked that Sadie needed some too and we started talking about how that wouldn't be a bad idea. The sun does bother her in her car seat at times. So after Macy's we went to H&M. I LOVE our H&M because they have a children's section. Y immediately saw the children's sunglasses so we tried them on her.
I wish I had a video of Sadie seeing herself in the mirror for the first time with the glasses on. She LOVED them! She was smiling, posing, laughing....it was priceless. We bought the pair in the second photo above. They have little rhinestones on the sides. So cute! Sadie also got two Hello Kitty dresses at H&M.
After that we went for a soda break and Sadie wouldn't take her glasses off. Check her out! She was so happy.
As soon as we left the mall, Sadie fell asleep. It was 5pm. Not the ideal nap time. We made a quick stop at Sweet Lady Jane's for some sweets. We all got something (or a couple of somethings) to go. Then we went home.
Sadie slept until 7ish when I finally woke her for dinner. She immediately wanted to put her glasses back on and continued to wear them until I finally tucked them away for the night. It was a really fun day!
We decided to try to go to Disneyland on Friday. I'm going to take another day off despite the mounds of work I need to do. Everything will still be there on Monday so what's the harm, right?
