It has been an incredibly stressful week.
Addie has had a mystery illness that dominated the last five days.
Even the doctor didn't have a solid answer for us.
Troubleshooting my Little Monkey is harder than it ever appears.
Addie also lost yet another tooth - literally.
She is so proud of herself for extracting her own teeth, and this time, she woke up happy and excited to show me the vacant spot in her mouth.
I do think the loss of that little tiny tooth had a bit to do with her absolute misery over the proceeding days.
Addie is feeling better and with this beautiful sunny January day upon us, we had to get out for a while.
We started the day with a doctor's appointment for Julien and me.
This very quick and painless appointment had Addie on maximum stress overload.
Any new doctor's office causes an extreme amount of anxiety for Addie, even when the appointment isn't for her.
After the traumatic start to our morning, we proceeded on to things a little less stressful.
I needed to do some quick shopping and my little helper was all about paroozing every item within her reach.
When she was adamant about trying on this swimsuit, I didn't give it a second thought because I knew it would buy me at least a good five minutes of my own trying on time.
Yep, she was rockin' it.
Later in the day, we enjoyed some downtime and hijacked Julien's ENO.
AND, to top off the day, we had a spur of the moment visit from ToTo!!!!
He spent the day at the groomer's, and my sister detoured on the way home so we could spend some time with him.
It has been a really long time since we have seen him
these last few weeks have been very, very difficult on Addie.
She has had several very tearful moments of missing her GaGa and ToTo
seeing ToTo again made her so very happy!
I made a makeshift collar and leash for him so Addie could walk him outside.
His little leg still isn't back to normal after his surgery at the beginning of September, but that didn't stop him from playing with Addie.
She was SO EXCITED!
A perfectly beautiful - sunny and rare - January day!
