New Year Ramblings

TGIF! It’s finally the weekend (woo hoo!) It’s been a long week here… Blaire was finally given an antibiotic for the cold she has had since the beginning of November. Thankfully it helped her congestion, but led to lots of lots of coughing and a very runny nose. I think she is finally starting to get over it the past day or so. We have had lots of sleepless nights the past few weeks…. One too many sleepless nights is actually what finally made me take her back to the doctor for the third time. I was convinced it was another ear infection. The poor girl has been battling her cold, getting in her third tooth and was way off of her schedule with all of the holiday festivities.

We spent New Year’s Eve at a friend’s house, for a parent/child party. It was fun to get out of the house and Blaire loves playing with/watching all of the other kids. Blaire actually made it past midnight… and then slept in until 9AM. It was an amazing way to start off the new year! On New Year’s Day we had some friends over for pizza. They brought Blaire her Christmas gift and she was SO excited to get to open another gift.

Blaire is really starting to get back to her funny, crazy little self now that she’s feeling better. She has started “dancing” now whenever she hears music, clapping or whistling. It’s adorable. She is also quite the little waver. Sometimes it’s with both hands, sometimes it’s only with her fingers (so it looks like she is casting a spell. HA!) and sometimes it’s just a normal, one-handed wave. She LOVES being out and about and seeing people, especially kids. She’s pulling herself up on everything and will even take one step from Jason to me, or vice versa. I don’t think it’ll be too much longer before she’s taking steps on her own!

I’m heading to New York tomorrow for work and will be gone for three nights. Here’s hoping Blaire wants to start sleeping through the night while I’m gone. I know Jason would appreciate it! ;) I’m so worried about being away from her and I know I’m going to miss that little face so much while I’m gone. I always feel guilty whenever I’m away from her. Does it ever get easier?

Well… I guess that’s all for now! Happy Weekend! xo
