Gone Fishin'

2.26.2014


My blogging has been pretty much non-existent this week! It's been busy with doctor's appointments and other fun and blogging just hasn't happened. I know the week is already halfway over, but I want to share some scenes from this last weekend.

On Friday night Jesse took Emerson to the playground. I went to get the mail and on my way back I saw him rushing into the house carrying Emerson. I figured she probably just had to use the bathroom but when I got in the house I could hear her crying hysterically.

I came into the kitchen to find this. That is so not the sight you want to see on your baby girl. They had been playing chase and somehow Emerson fell and hit her head on the brick wall in the corner of the playground. Luckily we were able to calm her down by giving her a sucker. Once we got her cleaned up we could tell that her injury wasn't serious. It's just scary how much head wound bleed!!





She was completely fine within a few minutes but it took Jesse and me a while to completely calm down. That's definitely one way to get your adrenaline pumping.

On Saturday morning the weather was gorgeous so we decided it was a perfect day to take Emerson fishing for the very first time. She had a gift card from Christmas so Jesse took her to Wal-Mart to pick out a fishing pole.

Then we headed to a nearby lake to see what we could catch. Unfortunately we didn't catch a thing but Emerson still had the best time. She loved holding the fishing pole but she probably loved throwing rocks in the lake just as much. :)








Saturday was also National Margarita Day so we went to On The Border to celebrate. They had $1 margaritas. Don't worry, we only spent 2 bucks!! One for each of us was more than plenty!

By Saturday night Adelyn had come down with the same yucky cold that we had both had earlier in the week. She acted fine but her breathing sounded terrible. I ended up holding her all night because Jesse and I were both worried. We decided it would be best to stay home from church and see about taking her to the doctor. I called the nurses' line and they said that she didn't need to be seen since she didn't have a fever. We did lots of cuddling that day and she seemed fine by the afternoon. That night her congestion got even worse and I decided I would definitely take her to to the doctor the next morning. I felt pretty sure that it was just a cold and they couldn't do anything but better safe than sorry. She checked out fine and her congestion seems to be getting a lot better. It's just the worst when your babies are sick! I'm so relieved that she is on the mend now!

Emerson's fishing outfit is the best. I can't believe how grown up she looks!

Stephanie said...

Holy cow, I thought that was paint in her hair, not blood! So glad it wasn't as bad as it looked! Looks like you all have been having fun otherwise. :)
