This week has been insane! It all started Saturday night with Bella throwing up. I didn't think anything of it because sometimes she does that. It's a chihuahua thing. Anyway, she kept at it, and then started having diarrhea. I decided that since it hadn't stopped on Monday I would take her to the vet. They gave her a shot and some antibiotics and sent me home. Things looked hopeful for a moment. Then she started having bloody diarrhea. I know, too much info. It was so scary! By Tuesday, she was throwing up everything, all the water and Pedialyte we would give her, she wouldn't eat anything, and was so, so weak. We decided to take her to the pet ER that night and get her rehydrated since we thought it couldn't wait until morning. I am SO glad we did. We seriously thought she was on her death bed. It was mortifying. Lots of tears and prayers later, we are happy to say that Bella is now on the mend.
By Thursday, I had had it with cleaning up throw up and diarrhea, so I decided it was time for me to take Scarlet to Disneyland. We had a blast! We went with our friend, Amy, and her 3 kids, Carson, Beckham, and Chloe. As soon as we walked through the gates, I got stung by a bee, right on my finger. I kind of freaked out a tiny bit and made Amy pull the stinger out since I didn't think I could touch it myself. It grossed me out. After that ordeal was over, I was just sad that the bee was now dead. Poor little guy. I promise I didn't even try to hurt him. He was just under my hand at the wrong time I guess. I made myself feel better with a big giant Coke (Disneyland Coke is the best, even better than McDonald's).
Ryan had his first test today for school. He studied so hard for it. He has spent countless hours studying anotomy and innervations. He feels like he did well and I'm sure he did. I think he's fabulous at everything he does! He makes me so proud to be his wife.
... and that's our week... in a nutshell.
*As you can see from the photos, Scarlet loved goofy (she was laughing at him), and hated Minnie. She was totally freaked out by Minnie. So sad.

- Toilet paper
- Sippy cups
- GoGo Squeez (if you have never tried this and you have kids, try it! I got my first one at Wal-Mart when Scarlet was having a full on freakout. She loved it, it made her happy, which in turn made me happy). It's applesauce in a squeezy pouch. Amazing invention.
- Laundry detergent
- Cascade dishwasher tablets
- USB cable for the printer
- A webcam (birthday gift for mother)
The list goes on and on. Literally. Since I discovered my obsession, I have really tried to keep the ordering to a minimum. I think the ladies at my leasing office hated me because I had a package coming almost every single day (no, UPS only delivers packages to my door occasionally. Yes, it is really annoying. I have to load up the stroller and walk to the leasing office in the million-degree heat to get my package). Anyway, there you go. Apparently I am an Amazon-aholic. Can't help it. Are you one too? Please let me know I'm not the only one out there.

Can you believe it? You're 13 months old and living in California. I feel like since we moved, you have grown exponentially. You are everywhere and into everything. You have the desire to climb on anything elevated. If it's off the ground, you have to be on top. Maybe that's an indication of who you will be in the future? In charge and confident.
You have popped out 4 new teeth. It was only a slight struggle to get them out, but you handled it like a champ!
I'm loving watching you grow and change. You have the funnest personality! I'd say you're just like your daddy. That's a good thing.
You are "talking" like crazy. You love to say, "tickle, tickle, tickle," "Bella," and many more.
We took you to the ocean soon after we moved here. You thought it was great. You chased the water as it receded. Once it came after you though, you decided the ocean wasn't so great anymore.
Oh Scarlet, you are beautiful. Keep giving me snuggles and kissy kisses okay?
