OK, things got a little crazy as we found out on Thursday that Emma got RSV and maybe a little croup for the second March (and her only March’s) in a row. It is certainly not as bad as last year when it sent her to the hospital. She only has a rough time at night and just has a couple coughing spells during the day. We are doing middle of the night breathing treatments but the good news is they do seem to help.
This weekend with my aunt, uncle, grandma, etc. visiting was a whirl of shopping, eating and just hanging out. Truth be told, I spent most of my time on the computer finishing up for my implemenation at work and then putting books on ebay since they had a insertion fee sale. I put 93 items on there and wasn’t even done!!

I have religious, medical, marketing, technical, novels and mostly other nonfiction type books. The books are my best friend’s parents who went to work with troubled teens and they are basically selling all they had and they had quite a book collection. Most of them are hardback and all of them look brand new. I think I have one more box to list still. Yes, I know that was a shameless plug, but I know some of you are bookaholics and I’m just trying to feed the monster 🙂
My sore throat got worse and then got better. I think it’s settled in my chest for now as a yucky cough thing.
Emma is 16 months as of yesterday! She is quite the little person! I painted her nails red and everyone had a fit over her pig tails and painted nails. Sometimes when you ask her about her nails, she’ll spread her fingers out and show them. Hmm..I’m trying to think if there’s anything new she’s doing. She’s getting better at her words..dog, ball, momma, bye-bye. She has all kinds of expressions and hand motions. She lifts her eyebrows a lot lately and has been putting her hands out as to say get me. She holds them really close to her chest and it’s so cute! You can’t say no! She is not so much fun shopping. She doesn’t like her stroller or a cart and doesn’t really like to hold a hand when she walks. Now she does like to grab hold of clothing and rearrange them on the floor, making a trail of mess for someone to clean up. She is a smart cookie if you ask me. She is so good at those little wooden puzzles that have the knobs on top. She will sit there and put them in, dump it and do it over like 6 or 7 times in a row. And she usually can find where the piece goes and turns it around to get it in. She remembers places now. She gets excited when going to church, the grocery store, my mom’s house. She still loves animals. Of course now that she has been walking for 6 months she is a pro and pretty much runs. She goes in circles, knows how to put her head down to do a flip. She sits on her knees and squats. She can use a fork and a spoon a little bit. Hmm, I don’t know what else. She’s a little sweetheart. Loves to give out hugs and is a friend to anyone.
