TEN!

Ten is a great number! Allow me to demonstrate:

1) 10 is the number of months Allison turned today. 10 whole months! Just 2 months shy of a year. She's getting so big and doing so much fun stuff. Sadly, we spent most of her 10 month day feeling crummy. It was a day of firsts: her first real, non-teeth related fever. Her first trip to our pediatrician's after hours clinic. Her first lab cultures being taken. Her first precription for being sick. It was a sad, sick day... we may not be headed to church tomorrow.

I noticed Allison's fever after her afternoon nap. I acutally think it woke her up (it was only a 45 minute nap). The poor thing was just inconsolible... her binky wouldn't do, her bottle wouldn't do, snuggling was not good, being put down was even worse. She was so hot and so miserable. Once we got into the doctors office all she wanted to do for the rest of the day was snuggle. Poor thing... I hope she starts feeling better soon. She's too darn cute to feel crummy.


2) 10 is the number of days we have left until Allison and I hope on a plane and fly to meet Brian in Berlin! Granted, it'll be 11 days before we actually get to Berlin, but in 10 days (and 10 hours consequently) we will be on the plane waiting to take off for Berlin! We are both so excited for that day. Allison really misses her daddy. Brian has found an internet cafe near his apartment in Berlin, so he heads over there and we video chat a couple of times a week. Allison gets SO excited when she sees her daddy's picture on the computer and hears his voice too. She starts to show off for him... its really cute.


3) 10 is the number of complete days Brian, Allison and I will be spending in Paris and London in July! =) But now I'm just bragging...

I'm sorry Allison is sick...ear infection??...you should take her to a chiro! But on another note...I am so jealous you get to live in Europe all summer! Is Allison crawling yet?

Cute pictures! Is she feeling better yet? Poor little thing. I can't believe she is 10 months old.
