It’s snowing and it’s beautiful. Chris is praying for a snow day tomorrow but we’ll see. St. Louis never gets the snow they predict, for his sake I hope the weather guy is right this time though.
A lot of you know we lived in Spokane, WA for a couple of years and I talked to my friend, Kate, up there today to check in and make sure they were ok… b/c have you heard about their snow? Crazy snow. Like on day four of snow day snow! Chris is so jealous!
So with the snow headed here the girls and I hit Target and Sams for some staples in case the snow actually came and I didn’t feel like running out for milk for a few days. At Sams, on hour 2 of shopping, they were being adorable in the cart together (I love that Sams has two seats for kids in the front of the cart. Love that!). Parker kept leaning into Bails and then Bailey would hug her. Over and over and over again. Luckily I had my camera in my bag and captured one of the hugs! Note to ALL, carry those cameras! You never know when a moment will happen you want to capture!
(*emily aren’t i getting better at indoors???)
So we now have a few extra gallons of milk, some fun new toys, good snacks and some easy dinners. Just. In. Case. Of. Snow.
The bad bad bad news of the day is that during bath tonight i noticed some red bumps on Bailey’s arms/belly/chest/back/bottom. They were little red bumps and some had whitish centers and some looked fluid filled (like I wanted to POP them!). They are tiny but noticeable. I called our pediatrician’s after hours hot line, talked to a nurse who said they sounded like CHICKEN POX! Holy crap.
I’m calling our ped in the morning to find out what they think or if I need to bring her in for them to see her. I’m just praying it’s a fluke and turns out to be nothing b/c whether C has a snow day tomorrow or not I wanted to take the girls out to play and POX seem like things that should stay inside. Not to mention we have Mardi Gras plans Sat night that we’ll have to cancel b/c I wouldn’t bring a baby sitter into the contagious zone (the nurse said if it is chicken pox she is contagious for 5-7 days).
So anyway, snow and pox. All in one day. It was a busy day.
OH, and I want you to know I updated the baby name list over on the side… we’re up to 120 names! I could write a top 100 names article or something! Way to go you guys! Chris and I have several that we’re talking about and I promise as soon as we decide you will be the first to know! And if you still have suggestions I haven’t stopped accepting entries so keep them coming!
Pray for a snow day tomorrow!
