Back at home as soon as Gigi arrived Hudson practically jumped from my arms to hers. He just adores her! I'm so thankful that she was here to love on my baby while he wasn't feeling well.
The girls had fun at their parties and enjoyed decorating gingerbread man cookies, playing games, and doing a few crafts.
They brought home all sorts of Christmas artwork and handmade ornaments that we immediately hung on our tree.
This afternoon after Handley's gymnastics class we rushed to the pediatrician to make it by the walk-in hours. Hudson was all hyped up out in the waiting room and you never would have known he wasn't feeling well. However, as soon as they called his name to come on back he turned on the tears and played the part of pitiful. That didn't stop until we were out of there with a lollipop in hand. I opened it for him, he took one lick, stopped crying and said, "Mmm!!!" His happy mood swing lasted about as long as the lollipop did, but I'm hopeful that he will wake up feeling a little more like himself tomorrow. Turns out he has an ear infection (just as I suspected) and I'm glad that 1) he isn't contagious 2) that it is treatable, and 3) that after a day or two of antibiotics he should be feeling better.
