This past weekend Juliette, Grams & I headed to the Ft. Myers/Bonita Springs/Naples Florida area for a good friend's wedding at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa. Juliette caught the pink eye last week at school...and came down with a fever by the Friday afternoon before we left. We decided to continue with our plans to drive six hours to SW Florida. We packed up the car and arrived at the gorgeous Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Ft. Myers around 1 p.m. Juliette was still not feeling 100% but seemed o.k. The weather was not cooperating so we weren't able to see the homes (we went back Sunday afternoon so we did get to see the houses!). So we headed south to check into our hotel. Right after checking in, we found a really cute restaurant called Coconut Jack's. The food was good, but unfortunately, Juliette wasn't feeling good at all. After a not so great night of little sleep and some sort of odd rash that had appeared in the morning, we took Juliette to an urgent care. Turns out the kid had gotten some gnarly virus. She got a prescription for some antibiotics and we were sent on our way. I had wanted to take Juliette to a children's museum I had found online, Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples. Juliette wasn't really up to playing since she was still fighting off this nasty virus. It's a cool place though! She did manage to splash around in their HUGE water table enough to get herself soaking wet. The wedding was Sunday night and Grams was happy to babysit so that I could attend. Needless to say...after days of fever, a weird rash, eye drops for the pink eye, vomiting on her Mama (yeah, that was fun), and dealing with a sick and clingy kid, we made it home. The wedding was just beautiful!

Juliette's school pictures turned out sooo cute! She is really growing crazy fast! The past few weeks have been insane. She is finally starting to really talk! She loves making animal noises...especially "roars" with her Dada. They had a ten minute phone conversation one night that consisted of Josh making an animal noise and Juliette repeating it. She loves to say "Ut oh" over and over and over. She loves coloring...hopefully she will love arts & crafts as much as I do! Lately she adores being outside. It's really hard to get her to come back inside! The swimming pool is always a big hit. She has no fear in the water. Scares me to death. We need to get her some swim lessons soon. We got her a cool water wings thingy that helps her feel like she is on her own. The park is also a big hit these days. She usually leaves screaming and crying. She could swing ALL day. Another popular activity lately is chasing the dogs around the house with a piece of food in her hand, That ends in her crying when Monty finally snags it from her when she accidentally drops it. She has become quite the cuddle buddy. I love her snuggles. She is just growing and changing so fast...I need to get back to posting more often! Enjoy the school pics of the world's cutest little curly blonde!
