we've been sick around these parts lately, in fact it seems as if things are just slowly starting to get back to normal. we're no longer looking for inventive ways for the baby to sleep so that she can breathe and yet not roll over and suffocate herself.
the whole thing started last saturday and since today's friday it's been one germ filled week for all of us. i'm glad things are getting back to normal. we need to get out of the house, out of our bedroom, and we all need some more sleep.
sunday and monday were the worst. her fever never dropped below 100 those days even with tylenol and she could only sleep for 2 hours at a time, which meant i hardly got any sleep those nights. we spent a lot of time in the bathroom with the shower running and never really left the bedroom where we had 2 humidifiers running. both charlie and i just felt so bad for her. there wasn't much we could do and she was just so uncomfortable. she spent most of those days whimpering and just wanting to be held. so we did. in fact the only time i put her down was at night to sleep.
but this morning she's feeling much better. still pretty stuffy, but she slept pretty well last night and even played by herself a bit this morning and is now napping somewhere other than my arms. as much as i love holding her it's nice to have a break to get a few things done with 2 hands. the weather's supposed to be beautiful here today and since we've been cooped up inside this week we're heading to boulder to walk around and just be outside.
