Josh & Liz’s Wedding Weekend

Sign of a good wedding weekend: I’m STILL tired!

Dallas was a groomsman in Josh and Liz’s wedding and it all kicked off with rehearsal on Friday night. I didn’t actually go to the rehearsal, but met up a bit later at the top of the Tribune Tower at The Crown for cocktails (many) and appetizers. Though it was chilly outside, everyone braved it to go outside and take a look around. The views are amazing and so is the architecture. I used to work across Michigan Avenue from the Tribune Tower and it was really interesting to see the opposite view and to see the Trib Tower architecture from the inside out.

The wedding was at The Ivy Room. The ceremony was short and beautiful. The bride and the bridesmaids all wore white. The groom and the groomsmen were all tuxed up. I could not get over how adorable Liz’s niece, the flower girl was! And especially later on when all she wanted to do for hours was dance and twirl in her dress. I loved the part of the ceremony where the officiant revealed to Josh some things Liz said and vice versa.

The dinner was good, the dancing was great. After the wedding we kept going and it was quite a late night. I’ll leave it at that! Congratulations to Josh and Liz (and Konrad)!

Makai was sleeping for HOURS in the corner. People didn’t even know he was there.

Ringing in 2014. Makai woke up MINUTES before and was HUNGRY!

All better after he ate. He was smiling and happy.

On New Years Eve we had to take Makai to the doctor. Turns out he has an outer ear infection, which explains why he’d been super fussy in the previous days. Although, he did just get vaccinations, so that’s what we thought was the issue at first. The doctor dug a bunch of crap out of his ear and sent us home with some drops and almost right away, Makai felt a lot better. Still, we were not sure if we would still go to the two New Years Eve parties that we’d planned to go to and had a lot of back up plans.

We decided to get to Jen and Chad’s house early, at 5 p.m. We were the first ones there and Makai was awake for about an hour or hour and a half. After that he fell asleep for about five and a half hours! I was ready at any minute to take Makai home if he was not feeling well or crabby, but he just slept and slept. We even took him to Josh’s New Years Eve party and he slept there too. He woke up at a few minutes to midnight, just in time to ring in the new year with everyone. But he was super crabby, because, HELLO!?!? feed me!! After eating he stayed up and visited for about an hour and then we called it a night. I wanted to get home and get him back to sleep in his bed so he can truly be on the mend.

Happy New Year, Makai! Here’s to hoping this is the only ear infection of 2014 (but all the parents at the parties told me it probably will not be!).

P.S. This is the 8th NYE we’ve spent at Jen and Chad’s and I think the 4th one we’ve spent with our other group of friends at the second party.
