Our good friend Julie came to visit us. We had a great time visiting with her. She took lots of pictures of Ally and they turned out really cute. Thanks Julie! Oh and your hair looks good.

Matt had today off, so we did fun things like get our hair cut, take a nap, go to the Childrens Museum, find a home to move to, and play at Grandma Julie's house.
Ally was playing with the toys at Grandma Julie's house.
Trent pushed all of the toys around Ally and she got stuck
in them. She has a doll hat on her head.

Today we went to the childrens museum. As
you can see Matt was having a great time.

Here Ally is playing with Uncle Travis. Yes, he

is playing with a doll.

Ally is playing with Uncle Trent now.

Ally and Matt are driving a car in
the Clifford Exhibit. It was really neat.

Ally is playing in playscapes. She had a lot of
fun today. She got a little aggressive and
pushed over a little girl.

Ally is checking herself out in the mirror.

I thought it'd be cute to get a picture of Ally in her
snowsuit. She looks like a big marshmallow in it,
but it keeps her nice and warm when we go outside.

Today Ally was full of laughs and giggles. It was
super cute.

Ally is working on tooth #5 now. It
doesn't seem to be much of a bother
to her since she was so giggly today.

Ally has turned into my big helper. She loves to help me unload and load the dishwasher. As you can tell, yesterday was a diaper only day. I also let her feed herself a jello jiggler. She loved it. She kept moving it around and just watching it. It was hilarious. She took a long bath afterwards, to remove the red from her skin. Ally was so tired after helping me unload the dishwasher, that she had to take a nap!

Matt is feeling better. We went to the doctor today and he said he just needs to make sure he takes it easy and doesn't overdue himself too much. He'll have a chest x-ray in 3 weeks to make sure everything is out of his lungs. He is planning on going back to work on Monday and just working 3 days. As far as school goes, he has decided to drop it down to only his Friday class. He will take the classes he is dropping out of, over the summer.
Ally is off and on with feeling better. She will be fine and then for a day or two she'll have a crazy cough, then be fine for a few days.
I am still dealing with bronchitis as well as being 12 weeks pregnant. So the last few weeks have been a little tough on my body. Things are improving though. I think once Matt gets back to working more, Ally and I will be able to get completely back on our routine of naps and meals. Hopefully things can get back to that soon.
We are getting ready to move to Plainfield in March. As of right now, we aren't sure where we are going to live, but have a few places we are going to look at next week.
We are soooo excited about the Nehring family moving back to Indiana. We can't wait till they get here in a few months.

Okay, so for those of you that may not have heard. Matt is out of the hospital as of yesterday at 4pm. For those of you that did not know he was in the hospital, I do apoligize, I have been a little busy. Matt started feeling sick 5pm on Sunday, I told him he needed to put a smile on his face because the super bowl was about to start. We got home and he had a fever and a nasty cough. Monday he had a fever of 102 and felt horrible, so he called into work and didn't go to school. We were going to take him to Urgent care, but then his fever broke and he started feeling better. I urged him to still go, but he said he was fine. Later that night around 8pm (just as the Urgent care closed) he got really bad, so I called our home teachers from church and they came over and gave him a blessing. Neither one of us got much sleep that night. Tuesday we went to Urgent care and they ran some blood tests and other tests. They gave him a prescription for an antibiotic and we went home. Wednesday morning they called us and asked him to go in on Thursday so they could go over the test results that didn't come back looking great. Matt said, why prolong it, I'll come in today. So we went in, they told us a little and ran a few more tests. They weren't quite sure what was going on in his body. They were thinking, mono, hepatitis A or C, liver failure, enlarged spleen, and other things. So they said we needed to head on over to the ER. So on our way we were to St Vincent. We got in there and after a few hours they admitted him. There he stayed until yesterday. They took LOTS of his blood at LOTS of different times. He doesn't have the best veins for taking blood, so he was in lots of pain with them scouting around in his arm with the needle. They finally came to an idea of what they thought it was yesterday an hour before we left. He has mono, and due to the mono he has pneumonia sp?, he has urinary tract infection thanks to the mono, and his spleen is a little bigger than it should be thanks to the mono. They said that it is very rare for all of this to happen while having mono and him being only 25, but Matt was lucky enough to get all of these. He is improving slowly. We are trying to hydrate him so he doesn't have to return to the hospital. He has now had an entire week off of work and school and is trying to figure out what to do with them both. Does he want to work and take the rest of the semester off or does he want to work and only go to school part time? Who knows, we still have no idea what is going on. Oh yeah, and we are suppose to be moving at the beginning of March. Matt was told he can't lift anything over 20lbs. Oh well, it'll all work out. Have a fantastic day!!!
