This has been another one of those weeks from hell. Baby girl has been sick for the past few days. Her nose has been in a constant state of faucetness. It just keeps pouring and pouring out! Her poor nose is red, as well as her cheeks and the tops of her hands, as if I do not catch the snot quick enough (and by quick enough I mean within a second of her sneezing snot out) she is rubbing it with both hands all over her cheeks! She is so miserable! You can just tell by looking at her that she does not feel well at all.
And she hasn't been sleeping well for the past couple of nights. Which means no one else has been sleeping well. Except of course little man, who can sleep through just about anything - including baby girl screaming in his ear in the middle of the night. The only way I can get her back to sleep and to stay asleep for longer than an hour is to get up and go sit in the rocking chair and rock her to sleep. So, I've spent two nights sleeping in the rocking chair with her. And boy are we all tired!
She seems to be feeling a little better today, she's actually been playing and she ate really well. So hopefully tonight we will be able to get some good sleep!
This morning my husband was going to call in sick to work. And for the first time I was actually glad. But then of course he decided to go in - so I was a little disappointed. And it figures. Any other time I would encourage him to go to work and he would stay home ;) He must've known that I would have put him to work if he would've stayed home!
I haven't been able to get anything done around the house... I've just spent the past few days holding my sick baby girl :( Nothing makes you feel worse than having your baby sick and not being able to do anything about it.
I'm thinking tonight we will just have to drive the 35 miles and get some McDonald's for dinner. I have nothing quick at home and no dishes done to make anything with or eat anything with. And I'm just too tired to do anything today. Horrible.
In better news, we took the trip to my ultrasound appointment yesterday and everything is looking good! The baby has a heartbeat in the 150s and we got to see that little peanut of a baby! :) Its so damn exciting!! I just love seeing those images on the ultrasound. Its so reassuring.
