Go Away Bugs!

Let me just start by saying, we have had some bug drama here lately. On Sunday, Addi flipped out when she was in her little toy drawer in the kitchen and she got a felt ladybug stuck between her fingers. Like she was TERRIFIED. It was so sad to see her scared but we tried to tell her it was just a fake bug, but she wasn't having it. Anyways, later that day she saw a piece of a stick Dixie had brought in and freaked out again. Bless her heart.

So, last night, we were about to put Addi to bed and I saw this huge red welp on her arm. Mind you, we had been in the same room watching Tangled and there was no yelp or indication she had been bitten. I was just sick to my stomach thinking it was a spider bite, so we watched it and made sure she wasn't running fever, then put her to bed. She woke up several times and at her 4 a.m. wakeup, we put her in bed with us and she started crying in pain and jerking her legs and scratching. We looked and she had several more welps on her legs and arms. :( I felt terrible!!! We really weren't sure what they were and she still wasn't running a fever. She ended up going back to sleep close to 6.

When she woke up, the welps were still there. We were supposed to have a playdate here this morning, but half the group cancelled because of sickness and so I just felt like I needed to find out what this was before other kids come over and risk getting whatever Addi had! I called Josh's mom and described what was going on and she said it sounded like a bad reaction to an ant or flea bite. I checked Dixie real good and she's clear, and I saw two ants in our kitchen today. I'm guessing that's what it is. I've changed every linen in our house, vacuumed, and sprayed around our doorways. By this afternoon, the welps had gone down quite a bit, so I am very thankful for that!

*Sorry for that long story. Ha!*

Addi and I had a very yummy breakfast this morning to make up for the long night.




And will someone tell Addi she is growing up too fast!!!! Ahh, she looks so big here! I can't believe I'm about to have a 2 year old!



Tonight, Addi went to her grandparents and I went to dinner and a movie with some girls from church. We saw the Help, and it was amazing. I cried, I laughed, I cried some more. If you haven't seen it yet, GO! Seriously, it is such a great movie. :)

Hope y'all had a great day!!!

  1. Bless her heart that's horrible! Hadley has never been a fan of bugs but after her wasp sting at the beginning of the summer we HAVE to pull the car over to exit all free-loading flies. Oh and I really want to see that movie!
