poor Snapper

We had a great time Tuesday at the sprinkler park with Sarah & Isabel and Lori & Livie. Lori was a little late. The Mama got lost out in the backroads of Williamson County...when WILL they update the toll roads on Google, yahoo maps, mapquest....? Mia and I didn't stay very long, she wanted an early nap for some reason. Oh, that reason was made clear when Mia woke up from her nap with a 103 degree fever! I was vigilant about her fluid intake, and the only solid or semi-solid thing she could keep down was yogurt. She sleep pretty much the afternoon away, and went to bed early that night. The poor Snapper threw up in the middle of the night, so while I was caring for her, her sweet Daddy made her bed all fresh. A few light spots formed, but never spread. Rashes are so common with viral fevers. She hasn't had any fever in the last 24 hours, so that's a good thing. We're still keeping a very careful watch on her ears and throat. Her eating has improved, but her stamina...not really.

We just took a walk to the park. I'm glad I pushed the stroller along side Mia just in case she tired. She did. After she found an amazingly wonderful walking stick, she walked about 1/2 a block (a total of one block) and wanted in the stroller. She didn't even want to play at the PARK!!!!! So, I just brought her home, and put her down for her afternoon nap.

Here's a pic of the oh so short walk. Mia in her cute new T-shirt from her Nana and holding her walking stick :)
