Unfortunately we spent much of yesterday like this:

That pitiful little face... it's so obvious that she was miserable. And while I felt incredibly bad for her, I can't say I didn't enjoy the sweet cuddles. As soon as I felt her put her little head on my shoulder in lieu of wiggling to see or point at something, I knew something was off. We decided to take her to Acute Kids since her doctor noticed some fluid in one ear at her 9 month appt and told us to "keep an eye on it"... okay doc, no problem. Just lend me that little ear microscope thingy and teach me how to use it... Anyway, they said it was possible that she had gotten some sort of virus or was having some major teething issues, or most likely, both. She ran a fever all day and was clearly was not feeling like her usual happy self. 

Luckily, she slept fine last night and woke up this morning without a fever! She's still not back to 100%, but it's still a great improvement over yesterday.

And today she hit 11 months! I had a bear of a time getting her to smile for a pic today since lying on her back made her go into a crying fit. But, I managed to get 1, with a smile no less (thank you Super Puffs can), and 1 good one is all you need, right? But since I know 1 picture of that sweet face isn't enough, I included a few from Saturday as well. As you can see, she's standing on her own! She can take 2-3 steps at a time, but only does it if she's got something or someone to fall into ;)

Today would've been the second time we'd have run into a problem if I were teaching this year. Last week our babysitter had a sick son, and today it's Adelaide. I'm so glad that I don't have to worry about whether or not I can call in sick or find someone to watch Adelaide when things like these happen. Just one more reason why I am feeling like I made the right decision in staying home with her. Plus, if I were at school today, I wouldn't be able to write this post right now, take pictures of my outfit (because I know everyone in cyberspace is desperately wondering what I am wearing today) and strike the universal "Yesssss." pose about the fact that I'm a stay-at-home-mom this year! Hehehe... that face is too goofy to leave out...

And now I must go do something useful and stay-at-home-momish. Like shine up some appliances or bake something.... I think I'm leaning toward shining up appliances, cause I've been jonesin for DQ Blizzard for 3 days now, and I don't want to spoil it with viable dessert options at home. Glad I thought that through!

Happy 1st day of school to those of you who it applies to! For reals... no sarcasm in that, I promise!
