A Whirlwind Week

Last week was super crazy busy and long.

Kaylee woke up two Fridays ago with major red puffy eyes that were watering everywhere and a nasty runny nose. Thursday had been our first day out during high pollen counts so her reaction confirmed in my mind that she had horrible allergies.  I gave her some Claritin on Friday and it did not seem to help at all. So, Saturday I switched to Benadryl and it helped her puffy red eyes clear up and not water. She had a little bit of a runny nose for a couple more days and I thought it was all clearing up.

On Wednesday morning Kaylee woke up with a very high fever. 102.8.  She also seemed to develop a nasty cough over the day. After her afternoon nap, she just wanted to cuddle and clearly was not feeling good at all.Over the next two days her fever never broke and her cough was getting worse. Thursday night her eyes started watering again and by early Friday morning I decided to take her to the doctor.

I called Markita to see if she could come up and watch Ella for me as Kaylee was VERY clingy and needy and I knew that the appointment time that they gave me would have me feeding Ella while we were gone. It would just be a better idea to have someone stay with Ella so that she could have her normal routine at home and Kaylee could have all of my attention. Thankfully, Markita was able to come!

At the doctor, Kaylee looked so miserable that all of the staff at the office kept saying "Awww, poor thing." when they saw her. The Dr decided to check her for strep. The test came back positive.  It was actually a relief because I knew then that Kaylee would be getting some relief with antibiotic.

Thankfully, I had taken her Friday because my parents were coming in that evening and we were having a lot of family over on Sunday for Ella's dedication and to celebrate Kaylee's 2nd birthday.  Saturday was the worst day. She looked terrible. We were worried that maybe we should not take her to church on Sunday. We decided to take her to the dedication and then one of us would bring her home. 

She is not completely better, but today she is more of her usual self. Taunting the cat and scattering her toys everywhere.

Nursing Covers

So, I am looking to sew nursing covers and sell them. I am trying to figure out what to call my little business and would like your input. I would prefer to stay away from anything that draws attention to breasts. So, Adam, "Titty Tents" and "Booby Blinds" are out of the question and not in the running. The two companies that I know of are Hooter Hiders and Udder Covers. Personally, the whole idea of a nursing cover is to hopefully "cover" and draw attention away from the business going on behind it. Anyways, my covers will be slightly wider on the sides as to help hide your belly/back that shows when you nurse and also will have a pocket to hold nursing pads or the baby's pacifier. Here are a couple of pictures of one that I already have completed for my best friend Kimberly.

Let the creative juices flow! :)

Sewing Sister*

The last two weeks of sewing club were canceled much to my disappointment. I decided that I had to start my next project by myself.  I got really excited about the project so I ended up finishing it.

My project...

Kaylee's dress for her 2nd birthday

Last year my Mom made Kaylee an outfit for her birthday and since this year I am a sewing diva I decided to make Kaylee's birthday get-up myself.

I think it turned out pretty cute.
