Birthday Countdown: Month 6

Continuing on our theme of the Canucks... Elise made it to her first hockey game in February! We saw the Canucks take on the Stars, and Elise seemed to enjoy herself, mostly entertaining the people around us by smiling at them. I just hope Elise grows up loving hockey as much as I do!

Elise came down with her first (of what would turn out to be many) UTIs during this month. I could tell she wasn't acting like herself, and I noticed she felt really warm. When I took her temperature, it was 103.5, which I know isn't that high, but was still really scary. It was horrible watching her cry as they took a urine sample at the doctor's office, and my heart broke because I couldn't explain why we were doing this to her. After the antibiotics took effect, she felt much better.

Elise was now sitting up like an old pro, with no fear of toppling over anymore. She had lots of fun trying to pet Seven, and playing with new toys. Her fun and happy personality continued, even while she wasn't feeling well, and she was such a joy to be around. People would constantly ask me if she was always so happy and easy-going , and the answer was always "yes"! What can I say, she takes after her Poppa!
