Sick kids.

I feel like ever since Trace was born, someone in this house has been sick, mostly Trace. Between his stomach problems, an ear infection and typical mid-winter colds...this poor kid has had it! Today we are off to the doctor because his lungs are rattly and he has a hard time catching his breath when he's crying or eating. Yuck! Scary stuff for a mama of an 11 week old.

Which by the way is how old he is today. WHAT! Practically driving. ;)

His digestion is so much better, though. We went all soy all the time for him and he's a totally different baby. Last week, 3 nights in a row he slept from 9 pm until 7:30 am. That is what we in the baby world call a HUGE BLESSING. :) Then his cold got worse and we aren't sleeping at all. I can't let him "cry it out" like I usually would (don't get mad at me, it's the only way he will learn to just sleep. It works and he never gets to the point of making himself sick!) He can't cry it out because when he cries he gets all mucus-y and nasty sounding and then he can't catch his breath again. It's a vicious cycle!

So here's the question of the day. When you are sick or your kids are sick, what makes you feel better? For me, it's a hot cup of coffee, a scarf around my neck and time to just nap and read in bed. Rory likes to lay on my lap and watch endless hours of Nick Jr. (fan-tas-tic. :))

Happy Monday! I hope your week is blessed!! Stay safe and warm if you are getting snow like we are. Pray for the people you least want to pray for. It's amazing what a difference it makes on your outlook. More on this later...Kate
