So Josh is driving across the country with his brother Tanner this weekend. They are driving out to Palmyra, NY. I am a little nervous to be a single mom til Tuesday! Josh and I did get a lovely date before he left. We went out to Red Lobster and to see Leatherheads. It was an enjoyable time! Josh's parents and sister watched all three kids so we could really have a date! Thank you! Today, we went to Park City with my mom and sisters, and had a little retail therapy. We also attempted pictures with the kids at Target. It was quite a task! Bella was an angel; Thomas was a wild man; Kaley was grumpy. That about sums it up! We were able to a cute one of Bella and one of Thomas. Kaley was not cooperative in the least! I want to continue getting pictures done with the kids, but I don't know how people do it! Our weekend is hopefully filled up enough that I won't have time to miss Josh. Danielle and Clarissa are coming down to help me Saturday and Sunday. I was just called to the R.S. presidency, and Thomas doesn't stay in nursery so I need the extra arms! I hope the next 4 days fly by!
We went to an eye doctor yesterday. He says that her eye infection is cleared up, but her ducts are still clogged. Usually this corrects itself by age 6-8 months. If it does not, then we will look into having a mini surgery. They just go in and probe the tear duct so that it opens. I have heard that it is quick and the baby is out for it. Hopefully, we will not have to figure that out first hand! The Dr. checked Bella's sight and retinas as well. She is developing completely normal there, so we are good. We are glad that her clogged tear ducts are nothing serious! Thanks for the prayers!

Bella has had a clogged tear duct since she was born. A couple weeks ago, both eyes were leaking. A few days after that, they became goopy and a little pink. I took her in and they gave us drops for an eye infection. We have now been using the drops for a week, and neither eyes have improved. Our Dr. referred us to a specialist, and we go in tomorrow. I am hoping that it is just something small, and all will be fine. It just makes me nervous when it comes to eyes. Hopefully we will have an update soon!
In my first gardening attempt ever, I planted daffodils and tulips last October in the hopes that they would blossom in the Spring! Look at my "green thumb skills!" They are absolutely beautiful! I am looking forward to planting more flowers and bushes in my empty yard!
So I decided to be brave and paint a couple of places in our house! I started small with 2 of the bathrooms. The purple one is my downstairs bathroom. The blue and yellow is the kids bathroom. After that turned out pretty good, I moved on to the kitchen! I am quite pleased with how they all look! So now I am browsing colors again for the play room and Kaley and Thomas' room. More to come!
