Sick baby girl...

So baby girl is sick. I knew there had to be a reason why she wasn't excited to see me when I got home the other day. No seriously, I have noticed she has not been herself. Sure enough, she woke up yesterday with goop all in her eyes and looked so bad, poor thing.

Things got worse and she didn't sleep hardly at all last night. She was having a hard time breathing and was whining and crying all night because she felt so bad poor baby. I was able to rock her to sleep a few times but it was short lived. I had to put saline drops in her nose and it kept running for hours and I would try to suck it out but it wasn't working that good. Of course, she thought I was the devil after using the nose sucker on her. Way to bond mom!

So I was exhausted by this morning and decided to not go to work but to take her to the doctor instead. Diagnoses: She has a cold/fever and allergies. They cultured her eye to make sure she didn't have pink eye too. If she didn't think I was the devil with the nose sucker, she did now with having to hold her down to get the eye culture.

It's 11:10 pm and she finally is asleep but I don't know for how long. I'm going to bed to try to get a few hours of shut eye before I have to get up again.

Please pray that Rick and I don't get sick too. Savannah already has it.

Motherhood: It can't be fun all the time.

Poor baby! So glad you got her to the doctor today. I hope she's feeling better soon, and Savannah, too!

I hope she gets feeling better soon. I am right there with you -loving on Josiah with a fever all day. I just can't help but think as I sit here exhausted, how thankful we need to be that we finally can be there for them when they are sick and need their mommies the most to hold them and comfort them. Praise Jesus that we get that job and they no longer have to comfort themselves when they are sick.

Feel better baby girl & mama. Ayana is SO incredibly beautiful it seems even sadder than she's sick (because her smile could light up 1/2 of Detroit!)
I'm sorry she is sick today, but glad you get a day at home with her. I hope she feels better this weekend because I'm sure you have the cutest Easter dress EVAH picked out for her, and I want to see it!
