Take the small good

Not to rehash, but last week was rough. After the suspected food poisoning, there was fever and then there was... I don't even know what. She cried and cried and cried all night for two nights straight and we have no clue why.
Just ... hanging out on towels waiting to be sick.
This was a welcome sight after all night throwing up. Notice that we had to sleep in there with her... not the best night's sleep I've had in a while.
We are getting our heads above water now and today was actually a good day. And I'm seeing this week as an exercise in focusing on the good more than the bad. Because even though it was a rough week, there were so many wonderful moments.
Clearly, the monkey jumping on the bed is feeling better. 
We had a play date with cute friends at Umlauf Sculpture Gardens. These two sweet girls walked around holding hands. Darling.

We had to do a little furniture shopping that was made a little more fun by an indoor playscape. I love that my hubby will crawl up in there with her. Such a good daddy. 
Mama went to a baby shower on Saturday and Daddy and Emma had a play date at the Children's Museum. Apparently she could have stayed on this thing all day.
After some more shopping we grabbed a quick bite and she was fascinated by this thing. I love how she sticks her tongue out when she concentrates.
Sunday afternoon we went for our weekly mural pictures. I love the cute saying and color on this one, one of my favorites that we've done so far.
Then we went for a walk on the new Boardwalk downtown. It's really nice! It was hot, but it had great views.
Duck ducks! 
Love this little family of mine
