Last week was rough to say the least. It started out ok before I realized Gianna was sick. Sure she was sleeping a lot but besides a little runny nose she had no symptoms of being sick. So I chalked it up to teething or a growth spurt. Then when Wednesday roled around I figured it was something else. Poor girl, the dr said her ear infection was horrible

And amoxicillin doesn't seem to work for her. Since Wednesday night she seemed to be in worse pain than the precious days. Every night at 1am she was up and it would take hours to get her back to sleep. Of course her crying and screaming woke up Ethan so I had two screaming babies to try and comfort and get to bed. And Gianna now gets extremely jealous if I'm holding Ethan when she wants to be held. Cue major meltdown. So when Friday rolled around I was ready for the weekend and laying around in my pajamas all day

Friday morning rolled around and I got an unexpected call from the hubs who told me my day would be getting better. However he wouldn't tell me how so. An hour later he calls and as we are talking I hear a knock on my door. Now I'm in my pajamas with spit up all over them and since I had been up since 1am with two sick screaming kids I def didnt look my best. And I def didnt want to open that door. But I did and to my surprise my brother and his girlfriend were there! They had rented a car and drove from Wi to visit me for the week. I was so glad to see them!

We've had a blast so far. Saturday I was able to go shopping and for the first time in 2 years I bought non maternity jeans and clothes in my normal pre baby size! I also treated myself to new makeup. Sephora you get me every time. It was so nice to have help with the kids and hang out with them

The rest of the week they are helping me finish projects around the house. The back splash, updating Giannas room into a big girl room and adding more decor to Ethan's room are all on the agenda. And hopefully figuring out exactly how to convert out dining room into a playroom that's both adult and kid friendly.
We will see if we get it all done. And Gianna of course is loving all the attention. They last saw her when she was a year so she has changed a lot since then

Here are some pics from the weekend

Where did my baby go?

Tomorrow is my 29th birthday! I'm loving the fact that I will have babysitters so I will be able to go out to dinner with friends!
