Imogene is still running a fever of 103 (as of early this afternoon). Surprisingly the night didn't go so terribly. She was only up from 2:45 until 4:15! We'll call in the morning to get her an appointment to see our pediatrician tomorrow. Hoping for a somewhat restful night with another dose of the antibiotic in her!
Lily went with Mommy to a meeting this morning before church. On the way in she said, "I'm sure that people are going to be excited to see me." (We must often encourage her to get out the door and get wherever it is we're trying to go by telling her that such-and-such is waiting to see her. For example, her teacher.) She was an angel and sat so quietly on a couch in the church parlor while we welcomed new members into our congregation. So many people came over to tell her how grown-up she was and how impressed they were at her behavior. I have to admit that I was very proud ... and befuddled at how she was the same little girl who was kicking and screaming on the floor not 1/2 an hour earlier about putting her shoes and socks on. Oh, Lily.
Our little Imogene will be 10 months old tomorrow! And then Friday is Daddy's 35th birthday! What a big week we'll have, and then we will start getting ready for Grunny, Charlie and Naney to join us for Thanksgiving. November is such a great month - especially since it's right before Christmas and that's without a doubt Mommy's favorite time of the year. The other day Lily asked me if Uncle Ryan could go with her to see Santa because "I think he'd really like that." This should be a really fun age for all the magic of Christmas with Lily and hopefully Imogene will get into the spirit as well!
