January 26 - February 2
My daughter's mother-in-law had a baby shower for her on Saturday the 26th. Here are some pics of that fun event:
The theme was Dr. Suess
The place looked so cute!
The centerpieces were stuffed animals
dressed in newborn clothes.
What a fabulous idea!
Lots and lots of great gifts!
The small green quilt is called 100 hugs.
I made that for Aubrie to always have hugs from Gramma :)
The colorful one is for her crib, which I also made.
More gifts and cutting the yummy cake
The whole day was a bit surreal...just like her wedding day. Certainly doesn't seem real that in a month or more/less I will be holding my granddaughter. Honestly, I don't believe it!
Upon arrival at home I discovered a very sick doggy. Seems she got into the garbage while hubby's back was turned and had a 'yummy' snack. She was vomiting with diarrhea for 5 days. One night we all were up at 2 am mopping, doing laundry and bathing a dog. She decided to leave little presents throughout the whole house...literally!
I never would have thought that we should keep all food and WATER from her until she did not vomit for a total of 12 hours. We attempted bland food, rice/chicken on day 4....no go. We didn't know that we shouldn't be giving her ANY water. So day 5 we continued the bland diet adding yogurt and cottage cheese, this time NO WATER. She finally was able to keep it down for 12 hours. Day 6 continued bland diet, added minimal water. She is finally back to her normal self.
I was shocked at how her illness affected this "i don't like dogs" person. I was very concerned that she was seriously ill and we would have to put her down. And the idea of that was not pleasant. Still wouldn't consider myself a dog lover, but I have to admit, I do love this dog!
