My sister Courtney reminded me that it was way past time for me to update the world wide web with pictures and/or videos of Elliana.
I quickly agreed, and I fully intended to do just that this week. However, Elliana and I have been fighting a nasty cold. I think she's almost over hers, and mine has just begun. :(
Needless to say, I did not feel that this would be a good week to take lots of pictures or videos. After all, who likes looking at photos of miserable babies with snot covered faces? I'm sorry for the visual, but it's what we've been dealing with.
Poor thing, she was miserable most of the week. She wasn't at all interested in playing. She was fussy and clingy and her eyes always looked half open. It's so hard to see her like that. I'm thankful that the worst seems to be over and she's beginning to feel better.
Last night when she was beginning to show signs of feeling better, we were able to capture a short video. I apologize. It's not the greatest. The house was a little dark and I couldn't keep the camera still. I think that's a sign that it's been too long. Ha!
Have I mentioned that I love this girl?
On a side note, God totally gave me an attitude check this week. I was scheduled for jury duty and I was dreading it! I have to admit that I complained about it quite a bit.
I've gotten a jury summons several times before, but I never had to report -until yesterday. So, yesterday I reported and all morning I kept thinking to myself, "how can I get out of this"?
To make a long story short, I wasn't selected as one of the jurors, but I was in the courtroom and I watched the process of selecting jurors. I never knew that I would get to observe everything that I did and I found the whole thing fascinating! I have a whole new respect and understanding for our justice system. Really, everyone should see the courtroom in action some time.
I actually felt a little disappointed (a little) when I wasn't selected. Now that I've had this experience, I won't cringe or complain the next time I get a jury summons.
I hope you all have a great weekend! I'm going to be busy fighting a cold.
