Beach baby

We went to the beach this morning after breakfast (I made homemade crepes, yum). Reese loved the water and eating sand. The picture of the sand skid mark was taken by Dad after she took a huge spill. He called that picture "anatomy of a face plant."

Why do I spend $$ on toys??

Chewing on a pet perks card is amusing her for all our errands.

Pool time

Poor kid. Mommy took her into the pool with her sandals on and no top. Sad.

Saturday downtown

We headed downtown for the day, it was pretty sunny and warm by a nice day overall. We went to Marion square for kids fest and met up with some friends. After a snack in the shade we ventured out and hoolahooped! No clue how to spell that. Then walked around downtown and grabbed lunch, followed by a trip to the aquarium. Needless to say Reese crashed. Plus, it didn't help that she was bitten by
something this morning and her whole arm started swelling. After ice, Benadryl and Zyrtec she was a little sleepy!

Herb/veggie garden

We just planted these this morning. In the whiskey barrel there is cilantro, oregano, rosemary and mint. The other pots have tomatoes, onions, dill, basil and a lemon tree. I hope we get some good results. Next I want to do an elevated garden with carrots, I'll transplant the onions and maybe cucumbers!!

I'm at a nursing conference in Orlando with some friends. So far it's been fun but I've been all business. Unlike the last conference in DC and I had a little too much fun! Tomorrow is Sea World, tonight is a certification dinner and last night was an evening by the pool watching the sun set.

We went to Greekfest last week and met up Melanie and baby Ellie! Mel left to grab a refreshment and we watched Ellie. She was a little unsure about her babysitters!

New chair

Reese lives her new chair. Getting on and off is a game!!

Reese and I hit the aquarium thus morning. They have a toddler room and she loved the slide. She also toddler watched and took in all the kids around her. The otters were out swimming too so she laughed and pointed at them.

Weekend in May

These were taken two weekends ago but so cute. We are really enjoying the new backyard. Reese gets a little stir crazy inside so having all that space is awesome!

Another bug bite

Reese was bitten by a mystery bug Monday and her eye was completely swollen shut Tuesday morning. Finding her like that in the morning was pretty scary. We started antibiotics and by Friday her eye was so much better.

It would have made sense to have the pics posted in chronological order and I did that but it didn't translate to the post. Beats me. The first pic is by far the worst and was taken Wednesday morning. The 2nd pic is how I found her Tuesday morning, prompting me to call the doctor asap. The 3rd pic was Friday (on the mend) and the last pic was Thursday, the swelling was really going down but its still awful. You can see the bug bite in the 3rd pic, off to the side of her face. Poor baby. She wasn't really bothered by it and would play and laugh and clap which made my heart break and made her look even more pitiful. (See last pic, happy baby enjoying mango).

2 weekends ago...

I did a girls weekend with one of my oldest, bestest friends Kelly. She came to charleston on business and I stated downtown with her, it was a much needed break. I headed down Friday night. We had amazing oysters and a glass of wine! The next day Kelly went to work for a few hours and I went for a run and had a quiet breakfast. We met up after a few hours and walked, shopped and ate!!! All day! I headed home Sunday, I needed that alone time but I missed Carl and Reese so much.

April and May flew by..

Hence no posts. I love Charleston in the spring. There was been so much to do and lots of visitors. So far--Carl's dad came for a visit in April and we ate really well and saw a baseball game. Reese really loved it and was dancing to all the music, adorable.
We went to the outer banks of NC and Carl, his mom and his aunt all ran a half marathon, in the rain. Pretty impressive. And I mean rain, it was a huge downpour.
I have really been enjoying working less hours. Reese and I are getting more time together and I have been able to get some things done around the house. Her playroom was spruced up a little bit and I took out some of the baby toys. I now have a toddler not a baby!
My dad was here last week and got to spend lots of quality time with Reese.
Yesterday was mother's day and we were going to go to the beach but it rained all day and was pretty cloudy. So instead we did a little shopping and went to an Indian restaurant. Carl isn't a huge fan of Indian but oh well, I am!!!!
Also, Reese was sick once in April and just had a bug bite which caused her whole eye to swell shut. So that also kept me from posting as much. I will try to do better!
