Valentine's Day & More

Well the day that Jennifer and Maddison left, Leala started getting sick... she was sick for a couple of days, but no fever or anything.. and then of course Friday evening she starts in on the fever... we were able to break it, until the next round of meds were due... each time it got worse and so on... Saturday night, we called the emergency number for my doc and he called in some meds for you.. I spent forever at the pharmacy and got them to her a couple of hours later... Monday we took her up to the doctor and found out she had 2 ear infections... the meds she was already on would tae care of it.. he said to call back on Wednesday if she wasn't better... She wasn't..

We found out that it was all viral and that I had started it a couple of days before her.... so I got it, 2 days later she got it.. and 2 days later Kevin got it... (and now that I'm writing all this out, it seems like Maddison started it... lol...)... anyway. So he told us that she should be better within 7-10 days from when she got sick.. so yeah... good times.. and of course since we had it all staggered, it seemed to last forever!

Anyway, a couple of weeks after that, Leala started running a fever again! The next day it was off and on.. it wasn't Friday, so I was thinking about roughing it and seeing how it went... but then she woke up from her nap with a 103.4 fever!!! I called the doc, my dad and Kevin. I didn't have the car (Kevin was in Dallas with it).. Dad had Sean's extra car seat at the house and he could take me... and the doc said that if I could get there by 5, to go ahead and come (they don't accept patients after 4 usually)... so that's when mommy mode came in... i got dressed and put a rag on her head and started running out to the nearest gas station and told dad to meet me there.. it was closer to where he was and we were cutting it real close on the time... (Just fyi, Dad is coming from the south side of town to the north side of another town (my house) to the town north of Dad's town!) So yeah... I was dying by the time I got to the gas station, but it was perfect timing and everything... Kevin met us up there and everything...

Her doctor checked up on her.. checked her ears.. checked everything... we even did a urine test! You know what it all came down to? Pre-teething for her 2 year molars.. there's not bumps where they are coming in or anything, so they are nowhere near close to coming in, but that's what he said it was.. there was nothing else wrong with her at all! So this was good and bad... good that nothing was wrong with her... but bad b/c NOTHING was wrong with her! So how could i keep the fever down? ugh... not fun.. a couple of days later, she was back to normal!

Anyway, so that was how our February was! But in-between the 2 ordeals, we had Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year (which was actually the same day this year). Enjoy the pics!

Oh and a quick side note... on Valentine's Day, she saw a heart on my card from Kevin and my heart of chocolate... Kevin told her it was a heart and we used her finger to trace it.. She instantly knew what hearts were.. every time she sees one, she says "heart!"... so sweet...

I put together a Valentine's Day basket for you.. she was soo excited to get it!

"Look!" it's a junior tag book.. lol.

Reading the card that I made using the cricut, that her daddy and I wrote in.

She pointed to the hearts and said Mommy and Daddy.. lol

She was first learning to pose!



Cool shades!

Kevin's parents handing out the money for Chinese New Year.

Talking to their kids (we do this thing, where we wish them luck and good fortune and stuff for the new year and they tell us what they hope for us and stuff... all the "elders" give the younger ones money.. so we give money to all of kevin's siblings and their kids too). Look at Leala, by the way..

Look at Leala again.. lol.. she kept saying, "I see you!" lol..

haha... yeah we dragged the mattress into the living room again and watched a movie that night..

Our little family..

She's sooo cute!
