Thank you all so much for your advice on my post earlier this week about gifts for Caroline’s first birthday and car seat recommendations! You all are the best.
So this week was a bit of a rough one. Caroline came down with a nasty cold last Friday and it progressively got worse throughout the days that followed before it got better. She had the saddest cough (keeping her up all night), more snot than I ever thought was possible and a fever for 5 days. The doctor said all we could do was ride it out with Tylenol and Motrin (aka liquid gold), lots of snuggles, warm baths, Vick’s Vapor Rub, a nighttime humidifier and frequent snotsucking (Matt’s job). She is finally on the mend and we are thankful!
On to the good stuff…
– ONE – Yesterday we had our anatomy scan for Baby M2 and are thrilled to confirm the gender! Our parents have already popped their gender reveal poppers and the envelope containing the name has been opened and announced! I can’t wait to share the details with y’all next week! Until then, any guesses on a brother or sister for Caroline?
– THREE – I’m the last one to the party on this one but I just discovered Cookie Butter from Trader Joes and it’s an unhealthy new addiction for me. I seriously need to hide all my spoons.
– FOUR – On Tuesday we celebrated our first snow day! Well, it was mainly just an inch or two of ice, but still counted enough to stay home in pajamas! Even though Caroline was sick as a dog she perked right up once we got outside and plopped her in the snow. I think this was the happiest I’d seen her in five days. She loved it! For those of you who asked about Caroline’s snow suit…it’s the Cosy All-in-One from Baby Boden (Thanks, Grandmom!). This print is no longer available but you can find a similar version here.
– FIVE – I recently discovered the best trick to deep cleaning your towels! The other day I pulled out my freshly cleaned towels from the dryer and they smelled like they had been left in the washer for several days before making it to the dryer. Well, maybe they had but I did re-run the wash before drying them.
Anyway, here’s the tip: Wash your towels in hot water with one cup of vinegar (only). Wash towels in hot water again with 1/2 cup of baking soda. Throw them in the dryer and enjoy your fresh towels!
