Sunshine Sunday - purple hair, drugs that work, and swimming

It hardly seems like Christmas was this week.  It seems like it was a couple of weeks ago already.  Christmas was great.  My husband and I don't really do gifts for each other, but it is SO fun to watch the boys open theirs.  

After Christmas I had a hair appointment and changed out the red for purple.  This picture doesn't really do it justice.  It's a dark, deep purple, so it's actually subtle but kind of fun.  Maybe I'll take a better picture this week and make it a belly shot.

The best news this week is that the doctor prescribed me something that's actually helping the morning sickness!  I couldn't be more excited about it.  For me, the heartburn and the reflux have been the worst and I've tried a lot of different things.  He gave me the prescription and I went to fill it.  It wasn't cheap, so I was already kind of ticked off that I had to spend so much on it (instead of spending it on the ultrasound) and I didn't think it would work anyhow because nothing else had.  However, it's knocked the edge of the heartburn and reflux quite well and I'm SO THRILLED.  I can handle the nausea and fatigue.  This is awesome.

I felt so good Saturday that we took the boys swimming.  Rex has always been a water fan and Baden gets bolder each time.

Here's Rex in his water "forcefield."

The little guys teamed up at the end.  Seeing them buddy up is one of my most favorite parts of parenthood.  I sure hope they will always be great friends.

I am just so thankful to be feeling a little more like myself this week.  Woo-hoo!  It's the best Christmas present ever.

Thanks for reading.
