party at Papa and Grandma's

There's been a bit of craziness going on with our basement remodel, so we moved to Papa and Grandma's house for a few nights to get away from the mess and ruckus.

New scenery, different toys, etc...  It was fun to "get away" for a few days!

baby shower & balloon fun

My precious girlfriends surprised me with an amazing baby shower!!  Ryan said he was taking me out for a date, but then Michele and Melissa were in our driveway when we got out there.  "Do you mind if we take her out instead?" they said.  Michele, Melissa, Brooke, Abby and I had pedicures and relaxed at a coffee shop, which was a complete (and sweet!) surprise.  And then they took me out for dinner at Guadalajara, where 11 more girls were waiting for us!  SURPRISE!  Seriously, it was amazing.

When I got home, Collin and Lauren loved looking through all the pretty pink loot for Baby Caroline.

And then they had a blast playing with balloons from the party.

I can't even properly describe how refreshing and encouraging the day was.  My sweet friends [and their accomplice, my sweet Ryan] seriously know how to make a girl feel loved!

racked out

Morgan dropped his morning nap just after his first birthday, but there have been a few days since then that he just. couldn't. make. it. through the morning.  Case in point:

He's such a cute, snuggly sleeper.

sick February

February was the absolute sickest month ever in the history of the Fremont family.  Collin, Lauren, Morgan, and I all woke up with colds on February 1.  Fevers, labored breathing, and sore ears took us to Urgent Care on the 4th - and the four of us were diagnosed with RSV + a double ear infection for Collin.

Morgan's ox-sat was too low at the clinic, so he and I spent several hours in the ER being monitored.  Eventually it was determined that he was stable enough to be sent home with a nebulizer.

For the remainder of the month, we. were. sick.  I got bronchitis after my RSV, Morgan got a double ear infection, and eventually Cory fell victim to RSV also.

February was about naps and lounging and watching movies and just resting as much as possible.

By the grace of God, we made it through and are on the upswing now, but February 2017 will go down in the books.
