Yeah, I have made a record. I went 5 days without posting anything on my blog! Why you ask? Did I go on vacation or do something cool? Surprisingly, NO, I did nothing fun at all. I worked my hiney off this week! I've been tired, stressed and Liam and I are suffering with a chest cold.
I have been sad lately, so it's kinda hard to write a positive, cute post when you feel lousy.
Today we didn't do much. It was a long night with Liam because he would wake up crying after a labored cough. So every hour or less he was doing this and I was either putting him in bed with me to nurse, or just calming him down and putting him back in his crib. Very sad.
We called Liam's insurance nurse line to make sure we shouldn't take him into InstaCare today. The nurse was really sweet and gave me some home remedies and assured me it was nothing severe enough to go see a doctor today. She also offered to evaluate my symptoms to make sure I was taking care of myself.
Ian had gotten Liam to sleep at 10:30 so when I got off the phone with the nurse, I layed down to sleep too. We both felt a little better when we awoke an hour or so later. So we got ready for the day and ran a couple errands. I had relayed to Ian yesterday that Shari told me Liam was knocking down the kids' block towers this past week. They have wooden blocks, build them up and wait for Liam to come knock them down and do it all over again. So we went to Toys R Us with our little boy and ended up spending WAY too much money on him. Yes, we got the letter wooden blocks, but we also found him a wading pool, a stuffed little baseball and a swim diaper and matching hat for our trip to Lake Powell and any other water related affairs that come up.
We also went to one of our favorite restaraunts while we were out. Liam had a dill pickle for the first time... I wish I could have captured that sour face on camera. He had two really long reactions to the pickle... sour sour sour face!
watched him enjoy his new blocks. Then we got him down for a nap around 3:30 and we all took another nap! What a treat to actually take TWO naps in one day! I feel so much better because of it. I am planning on doing the same thing tomorrow so I can hopefully be over this cough and cold come Monday's work day.
