Sick Baby Girl

Over the weekend Ruthie came down with a runny nose.  We made it so far through winter without anything really in term is illness, but we didn't make it through February without.  For the first two days it was really just a runny nose, than Monday the cough started.  The runny nose didn't bother me so much, but the cough on my smallest little girl who's so young still had be a little bothered.  Sunday night she slept mostly okay, just didn't want to fall asleep at night.  Monday night though was much worse, she sounded so sickly and I was so concerned for her, so even when she did sleep, I didn't much because I was checking on her often.  So Tuesday we headed to the pediatrician's office. 

The boys had a two hour delay due to the weather, so I took the first appointment after 11, when we could get in there.  The doc explained that she had some inflammation in her lower airways, so she wanted to try a breathing treatment to see if helped her.  It did help her move more air, so home we came with directions for the next few days and a follow up appointment in two weeks. 

She slept much better last night, but we were up in the middle of the night for a few hours.  This time just because she was awake and mostly happy!  She's feeling better today and smiling at me again.  :)

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Uh oh!

Ruth has started saying Uh Oh now!  She started it at the sitter's yesterday and continued through the evening!  I'm hoping it's the gateway to more words for her!  Currently her vocabulary is lots of sounds, mom and uh oh.

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.
