ARIA is 6 months Already!
Okay gang, so it's Friday and time to catch you all up. It has been another rough week. After Aria finished teething and all look like it was on the upswing, Brielle started getting her 2 yr. molars in! So, she was whiney and her mouth hurt and a few days later she got a cold and cough which i caught a few days after that as a head cold and sinus. So, here we were, all sick and yesterday i woke up feeling about 50% better but, i still had the sinus thing. Well, i walk downstairs holding Brielle and i set her on the counter only to feel something squirming underneath my toes. My first thought was" it must be leftover food that i dropped" . then it started moving and fast. I immediately backed up to see a 3 inch SCoRpIoN ! I screamed and told Brielle to stay where she was (on the counter) and i ran and got Brandon's shoes and stepped on the dang nasty thing. I thought all was over until about 2 mins. later when i felt my toes start to TiNgLe! Yep, that sucker stung me!!! So, i immediately called my friend who had been stung when she was pregnant and she told me what the doctor told her to do. Take a Benadryl and if it starts to swell or i get sort of Breathe or really anxious i am allergic and i need to go to the ER! So, Lisa brought me over some Benadryl and took Brielle for a few hours and i tried to clean and rest. It hurt in the weirdest way, i can't really even describe it, either. Needless to say the rest of my plans were shot that day and i took a 2 hour nap when the girls went down. I'm no longer feeling the venom and i still have sinus congestion and Brielle is starting to get better(keep praying) And Aria is just along for the ride. She's doing great!
So here's some pics of her and a few glimpses of her room. She sits up for about 2-3 mins total and then she falls over or rolls to her side. I can't wait to take some pics with her bitty teeth showing. They are still so small though. I can't believe how the time has just vanished. Just like the venom in my toe!
I have to throw this last tid-bit in here b/c i've been working really hard- I have lost 40 lbs! My regular jeans are a little loose on me and i hope to lose about 15-20 more pounds. i start training the end of February with this rad chick named Nora! I'm stoked! Love you all! And i'll read all your blogs soon.
