Spring Snow

Just when we thought Spring had finally arrived and come to stay:

Don't even get me started on the Jayhawk Flag. I spent several minutes this morning teaching Lily how to say "Go Tigers" and "Mizzou".

Long Lost Pictures

With Grammy while Aunt "tippy" tries on wedding dresses.Fun with GoldfishAnd with Mommy's hat
Does this snowsuit make my butt look big? Opening her gifts from "girls" ChrismasMy battery on my camera has been dead for a while, so I had pictures all the way from Christmas that had't made it to the computer yet. I fixed that yesterday while I was home with Lily (she was sick and couldn't go to school).

Late Night Hospital Visit

Kristin and I watched "W." tonight, a fairly long movie, then as we were getting ready for bed Lillian decided to start throwing up everywhere! She had watery eyes and a runny nose all day, but was fine throughout shopping and dinner. After about 3 hours of the vomiting-bath-laundry cycle, we gave up and drove to Childrens' Mercy Hospital. An hour and a half and three vomitings later (for a total of 8 or nine), the doctor finally diagnosed an ear infection and possible dehydration. To treat all the symptoms at once, she had to get an IV in her little arm (antibiotics, anti-nausea and saline)! As I finish writing this, Lillian is still "drinking" her saline, and Mr. Rogers is on the hospital TV telling us he loves his neighbors.

Spring Finally Arrived

(Even though its only for a few days. By next week it'll be in the 30's again)

Yesterday was the warmest day of the year so far, not too shabby since its only the first week of March. The high in KC was 81 degrees, so we decided to take Lily to the park before dinner. I've never seen the park so crowded. Lots of people were feeding the ducks and geese, which Lily observed from a safe distance. She loves animals, loves to say what they are, and make whatever noise they make but heaven forbid they get with in licking distance of her. We met a nice little 4 lb fully grown Chihuahua named Sam, which Lily refused to pet, even though he was smaller than our cats. We must have done a good job of working up Lily's appetite because when we got home she actually ate some chicken that wasn't from Chic*Fil*A. And broccoli, with cheese! It was a banner day for her. We plan on going to the park again tonight, its only 70 here today but not windy so it feels perfect.

***Please forgive the pictures, we forgot the camera, so I took these with a piddly camera phone***
