I took the girls to the Great Wolf Lodge this weekend and as expected, they had a blast! I wouldn't have been able to do it without LeAnn's help because the girls were all over the place. Ms. Macey has NO fear and several times got herself out of the pool, went up the stairs and down the slide without even making sure somebody was at the bottom to catch her. A few times I even let her go all the way under and the second I picked her up out of the water, she'd look terrified, cough a few times and then shout "NOTHER ON, NOTHER ONE!" as she'd wiggle her way out of my arms to go back to the steps of the slide. Now Addy, on the other hand, wanted nothing to do with the slide. She was splashing around by herself in the water, being much braver than normal, but the slide scared her. I was sure once she went down it she'd love it and want to do it over and over again, so I gave her a gentle nudge at the top of the slide, and boy was she angry! She screamed louder than I've ever heard her scream (plus it echoed really bad!) and wanted nothing to do with me for several minutes. I felt terrible! Then, she accidently went a 2nd time (which LeAnn caught on tape) but she went down on her belly. Not a good idea. Once again, she was ticked. She eventually went and loved and and did it over and over and over again. What a fun day!

My poor litte Mace woke up a few mornings ago with the oddest sounding cough. When I got her out of her crib she sounded like she was really struggling to breathe and was making a wheezing sound. I took her to the doctor to find out she had croup. It's a viral infection so no antibiotics were given, but the doc did give her a steroid to help the inflamation in her throat go down. Her little raspy voice was so cute, but the wheezing was kinda scary. I think she felt a lot worse than she looks in these pictures. :)
The munchkins started "whistling" for Reggie after hearing dad or I do it. I'm pretty sure they think they're really doing it! I videoed this when we were on the way to the airport a couple of weeks ago. I was heading to Atlanta for work, so that's where the "bye mama" comes from. :)

Addalyn had to go to the doctor 2 weeks ago because she kept saying that her front bottom (haha!) hurt when she pottied. She had yet another urinary tract infection and was put on more antibiotics. The doctor said that she really wanted an ultrasound done on her kidneys, especially since I didn't get one done after her UTI earlier in the year. I took the poor baby down to Childrens Mercy for the ultrasound and she tried so hard to be a big girl...but once we went in the the quiet, dark room, she lost it. It took a minute to calm her down, but once she realized it didn't hurt and saw her "lunch" on the screen, she was good to go. I haven't recieved any results back yet, but I'm going with the "no news is good news" theory on this one.

Macey was SO funny at the English Landing Park. She loved the slides and wasn't scared of anything. This little video is so cute because you can see her excitement as her tiny little legs ran as fast as they could to go to the stairs after sliding, over and over and over again. I'd have thought she'd get dizzy! Also, I love the picture of her swinging and covering her ears because of the super loud train that was going by. She kept saying, "LLLLLOOOUUUUDDDD, Mama!"
