Summer Lovin'!

I know...I have totally turned into that person. You know, the one who blogs every other month and vows they will do better. I'll say it anyway...I'm going to try and do better!

Our summer has been filled with fun! We started out the summer by going to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We met my parents and our family friends, Scott and Tammy Sims. Micah was 10 months at the time so we knew this was going to be a fun, but different kind of vacation! She had never been swimming so I was looking forward to introducing her to some pool fun. Yeah, well...that didn't exactly go as planned. She liked the water for about 5 minutes and then wanted out to crawl around the pool deck! Oh well, next summer should be better, right?! Some things she DID enjoy was guacamole, golf cart rides, crawling around our room (and everywhere for that matter!) and her grandparents. Brett and I always love going back to Cabo every year so, all in all, we had a great vacay!

The rest of our summer has been made up of trips to Texas (visiting friends and family) and selling Fireworks at our Arkansas location. Abilene has been rather *crispy* this summer so they did not allow firework sells this year. Other than road trips and fireworks, we've enjoyed swimming with Micah, cooking out, fellowship with friends and just RELAXING! We head to Texas (again!) at the end of this week for Brett's 10 year reunion. Wow! Until are a few pictures of our Summer Lovin'!

Ear infection and fever and teeth, oh my!

Whew! What a week. Brett was on his death bed (or so he thought!) with bronchitis and a sinus infection and Micah had her first ear infection. Every month, I kind of internally count my blessings that she has escaped an ear infection but this month caught up with us! Poor little started out as conjunctivitis in her eyes, which in turn lead to an ear infection. The only good thing about her first ear infection was the fact that she liked the bubble gum medicine (amoxicillin) she had to take twice a day! She has been known to be quite the "gagger" when it comes to taking medicine. Almost as soon as we got her ear infection under control, she developed a really high fever (104.4!), which the doctor thinks was coming from her soar, blistery throat. This was the saddest thing, y'all....she would just lay lifeless in our arms making the most pitiful sounds. We gave her a cool bath in hope that it would lower her body temp and it seemed to do the trick. On top of her high fever, she was cutting FOUR teeth! Two bottom and two top. The girl could NOT catch a break, I'm telling you! Now that things are finally past us, I'm kind of glad she cut all four of her teeth at once....maybe we'll be done with the teeth cutting for a while. I really miss her gummy grin but her new teethy grin is just as cute! Anyway- cheers to no more sickness in the Unger home for a while, please!

This morning I went to MOPS at church and was reminded of how thankful I am for my sweet baby girl. The speaker today was a woman who went through a lot of hardship along her journey in hopes of being a mother. She lost a baby, and then struggled with years of fertility problems and described her life as being in such a dark place. After reaching rock bottom she said that she had come to the point of fully surrendering her dream of being a mom to the Lord and that she would love and serve Him no matter or no baby! A month after she had given this burden over to Jesus she found out she was pregnant! Such a great picture of God's faithfulness and such an awesome reminder of how much He loves us and knows what we need when we need it most. Whenever I hear stories like this I am overwhelmed with thankfulness in how quickly we got pregnant with Micah. I pray not a day goes by in which I forget to thank the sweet Lord for lavishing His incredible blessings on my family. What a sweet, sweet joy you are Micah Leigh! We love you.

Baby Einstein

So, today was Micah's first day to watch a Baby Einstein video. She absolutely loved it! It was so much fun to watch her little eyes light up at the sight of different shapes and bright colors. She started her adorable little noises too. Those sweet noises are like medicine to my soul! I'm SO thankful for the time that I've had with my sweet angel over the last few months. As my stay-at-home time with her is nearing the end, I am cherishing every moment with her. I'm going to miss staring at her all day and singing the same songs over and over again. Why did I let myself start this? It's not time to be sad yet! I have 3 more weeks before I can officially cry everyday on my blog posts ;)

So long 0-3 months...

This morning was a little sad for me. While Micah was taking her morning nap, I decided to go through her clothes and pack away everything she has outgrown. I didn't realize this would make me so sad! I love that she is growing (don't get me wrong) but it just caught me off guard a little bit with how fast my little angel is growing. As I packed away each little outfit, I was reminded of so many memories with her in those cute little clothes. I think her little gowns were the hardest thing to pack away. I remember putting her in those little things when she came home from the hospital! They were so incredibly big on her and her arms would get lost in the sleeves. Slowly but surely they started to fit her and I would be amazed at how fast her little body was growing. Sweet memories :)
