A sick lil leprechaun

Dear Amelia -
I'm home with you today. You are sick :( You were called home from Daycare on Tuesday with a temp. Daddy stayed with you yesterday so today is my turn. We tried to go to an urgent care yesterday but after waiting for 1 hour 45 mins, we left. Its not very often that you will snuggle
Not to mention fall asleep on my lap
This morning you woke up with a bit of a temp but were feeling pretty good.

I made a doctors appt for you because you've been blinking weird for the last few days, when I told to the doctor that...she thought you might have strep (its a sign I guess.) SURE ENOUGH!

You are currently taking a nap on this beautiful St Patrick's Day!

Underwater Adventures and Bieber Fever

Dear Amelia -
This past weekend, Glamma and I took you to Underwater Adventures at the Mall of America. It cost $19 per adult to go, not sure it was worth that but you had fun seeing all of the fish!

After seeing that, we did some shopping. You are such a big girl now, you want nothing to do with your stroller. After shopping, Glamma took us to lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. Fun! We went back to Glamma's for a nap and spent the night over there since Daddy and Cookie were out of town ice fishing.

You have your first crush. And it is on Justin Bieber.

Anytime any other song comes on in the car, you fake cry until "Bieber" comes on. Its pretty cute.
