Five on Friday

February has been a blur it seems. Between snow days and sickness, we've just been inching along over here. So here are the five most uninteresting things I could think of to post in this blog entry. Hold on to your hats, it's almost worth reading...


Pretty sure there is nothing worse than a sick baby. G woke up last Monday with what seemed like a little cold. The other kiddos at daycare seemed to have the same thing. By Wednesday morning, Gracyn was walking around the house moaning and whining and crying. I felt terrible because she felt terrible but she didn't have a fever or anything like that so we soldiered on.
not a happy camper...
I checked in on her at daycare and she was a little under the weather but having a good day playing with her friends. One little boy had been diagnosed with bronchiolitis or some other scary sounding upper respiratory infection; another little girl ended up having the same thing and an ear infection. On Thursday afternoon, I decided to take G to the doctor just to get her checked out. Poor babe's lungs were clear but she ended up having an ear infection in both ears.

To make a long story even longer, I earn mom of the year award for not taking her to the doctor sooner and for sending her to daycare every day when I should have just stayed home from work to cuddle and love on my sweet, sick baby.


G started a round of antibiotics and by Friday night {Valentine's Day} she seemed to be feeling better. We loved on our little Valentine and spent the evening at home.

My hot dates:


G shared the love and by Saturday night, I found myself walking around the house moaning and whining and basically crying to Justin that I didn't feel good. I have a cold and a cough that sounds like I'm dying. It's awesome.


Let's see...what else...

For Gracyn's first year of life, I compiled her monthly photos and pictures of all of her "firsts" into a Shutterfly photo book. I love me some Shutterfly. I made a book of our engagement pictures that we used as our guestbook at our wedding and made another one with all of our wedding pictures. Anyway, her Year One book has been ordered and should be here any day and I'm more excited about it than I should be.


Yeah, I got nothing for this last one. Rufus just vommed on the carpet so...gotta go I guess.

As Rihanna would say...

  1. Stopping by from the linkup...bless your sweet baby's heart. Hope y'all are on the mend <3! Xx.

    1. Thank you! Yes, we're all feeling better :)

  2. Visiting from the link up. That first picture of G just breaks my heart!! Poor girl! Hope she is doing much better now.

    1. Yep, all better it seems! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I'd say you were a little hard on yourself ... you took her to the Dr. before she ran a fever with the ears. Hope you all are on the mend!

  4. oh my goodness--she is seriously the cutest girl ever! even with being sick!

  5. I can only imagine how painful that ear infection was for your sweet baby! Good thing you brought her to the doctor not long after you discovered it, and I’m glad that she healed up within a few days. If she ever feels any sort of discomfort in her ears again, consult her doctor immediately. You seem to have had a great week, by the way. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Gracyn surely had a tough time dealing with that ear infection, and I guess it was the same with you. I'm glad that she immediately recuperated from it, and I hope that’s the last time she’ll get sick like that. Take care!

  8. An infection like that could get complicated and risky when left untreated. It must be really difficult for you to see your baby in pain. I hope she immediately felt better soon as she’s given the medication. She’s an adorable baby and I hope she’ll grow healthy and happy. :-)
