It’s my birthday!!!! I am 2 today!!!!! YEAH!!!!!
I got up early 6:30 and rolled around in my crib for a bit. Around 7:15 I coughed and coughed and coughed and spit up again. Mommy said that was that and she bathed me and dressed me and down to the health center we went. I have a minor upper respiratory issue and low and behold an ear infection! Go figure! I am used to them so they gave me good antibiotics and a clearance to return to activity just take it easy today. I got to have some pedialyte popcicles and I feel much better. The coughing is letting up and I am back to my jolly goofy self.
We missed out excursion today but were able to get a refund since I went to the on ship health center. Not a bad bill at the health center. $203 and $80 of that was the medicine. I have pricey antibiotics since it takes a good course to knock things out of my system. Daddy was very pleased that they shore excursion got credited for us.
Once I was feeling better we took the shuttle to Marselle and wandered around town for a while.
Mommy wanted a French crepe but we never found any that looked good. Oh well! We can make them at home anyway! 🙂 I got a neat necklace for my birthday from Daddy.
Marselle is a beautiful port and the ships in the area are fantastic. I got to see a man feeding a flock of pigeons.
We headed back to the ship for some lunch (they had a chocolate fountain at Topsiders today… YUMMY!).
Mommy said between the pedialyte (which is basically pure sugar water) and all the marshmallows and cookies I ate, that I am going to be a MAJOR hyper kid today. Hey, it is my birthday! Plus all the food I ate yesterday suddenly doesn’t count! 🙂 hehe
Tonight is Pirates night so I will dress my Mickey Pirate best! 🙂 Tomorrow we are in Villefranche and do not have any excursions booked. We are all going to take a taxi to Eze and wander the city. I can’t wait to spend the day with G’ma and G’pa again. I have missed them the last few days.
Oh yeah, I got a few b-day gifts from DISers! 🙂 THANKS! Sam, thanks for the Mickey Mouse. I love him already! 🙂
I am going to try to take a nap for a while… if I can. I had taken a short nap in the stroller which probably ruined any more chance of a nap for me, but I will try.
Never did take a good nap. We opted to RUN the decks of the nearly empty ship.
I was a pill at dinner but got better towards the end. The pirate thing was pretty neat for me. I got to dance with Mommy & Grandma Jo all around the room with everyone in the dining area. Yo-ho Yo-ho a pirates life for me! 🙂 After dinner Mommy didn’t feel well (bad morning sickness day and new seafood aversion..icky!) so we retired to the room where I had a nice bath and watched Lilo & Stitch on the room TV. Daddy went with G’ma/G’pa to the show (sort of Cirque D’Solei meets Mickey’s Dreams) and enjoyed it a lot. Daddy came back to the room after the show and was exhausted. I crashed about 9 pm after Mommy said I was too tired to be awake. After a long day and the sickness I feel a lot better than I did yesterday and this morning. Antibiotics are my friend!
Oh yeah, the room steward gave me a little model of the ship for my birthday! 🙂 I got a cake at dinner (wasn’t that yummy… I like gelato better).
