I hate allergies

Kris was petting dakota and then came over and gave me a hug without washing his hands. Within seconds by whole body broke out in hives. I took a shower and an overdose of allergy medication. I dream of a world without allergies.

Izzy is doing well. I've been sick but thankfully she's not. She is going through a phase right now with her sleep, or should I say lack of. She pulls herself up on everything and is trying to stand on her own. She'll take one hand off the coffee table or whatever she's holding onto and steady her body and look at me and smile. I don't think I want to know what she's thinking when she gives me that smile.

It's the beginning of Izzy's first holiday week. I'm making thanksgiving dinner for my dad and siblings because our awesome mom is working a long shift at the hospital. On friday, it's time to get the Christmas lights out and decorate the outside of the house. And on Saturday we're heading out to my parents for the Habbegger Christmas. Busy week ahead, but I'm so excited about all of the firsts Izzy is going to experience this week.

Have a great week everyone! And Sarah, make sure you get plenty of rest and let everyone else serve you this week and don't do anything.


  1. Amie I will serve my sister. I love my sister, and want her and the baby be helthy and safe.
