Ugh, my whole family is getting sick!

Both, me and hubby, woke up Monday morning not feeling all well. We sort of shrugged it off to allergies since we had a bit of a cold front hit us here in Florida. Today is now Wednesday and we do not feel any better.  In fact we both feel worse and now Morgan has it.  She is fussy, keeps spitting up and can't breath when nursing a bottle.  To top that off, I had to take my kitty to the vet today because he appears to have blood in his stool again.  Sigh!!  On the way home from vet, my car sends me an alarm saying "reduce engine performances".  Yea, the last time I got that message we were stranded at Disney in Orlando, when the car would not accelerate over 40 mph and we had to have it towed and drive a rental back to Coral Springs in the rain.  So, I call Land Rover and they send over a tow truck to pick it up.  My friend comes over to get me so I can get a rental from Enterprise, eat lunch and for the rest of the afternoon I have been doing my best to take it easy for my body hurts.  I can't breath and my baby girl is just as cranky.  I am sitting her counting down the time on the clock for when I can feed her cereal and put her to bed and get myself in bed.

Speaking of bed, last night was my first night to refuse Morgan her 2:00 AM feeding.  I got up and soothed her by rubbing her back and straightening her in her crib.  Sat in the rocking chair and let her fuss for about 10 minutes.  And when I say fuss, I mean just a little fuss, nothing dramatic at this point.  As she started to get a little wound up, I soothed her again, straightened her back up in her crib (she likes to turn sideways and gets herself stuck) and then I sit back down for another few minutes. This time she is getting a little more upset, so I get up and I soothed her by rubbing her head gently and slow.  I do this and she starts to doze off, until she finally did.  I was impressed for although it took about 45 minutes, it went smooth in my book! I went to bed, not 15 minutes later I hear her moving around and starting to fuss again and I quietly say to myself "no, no, no....go to sleep baby girl!".  As I watch the monitor from bed, she goes back to sleep and stays alseep till 6:30 AM when we get up around here anyways.  Go Morgan!!! Let's see how tonight goes!!! 

So, as I am sitting her trying to buy time from wanting to take some sleeping drug and sleep away this cold/allergies/flu for the next 3 days. I decided to play around and learn how to do MY OWN scrap design.  This is what I came up with on my very first try from scratch. It is simple, and it was fun. I want to make some for my own photo albums I plan to put together.  Scrap booking, I see, can become addicting.  Its fun, its easy and so up my alley. I wasn't good at the "real" scrap booking stuff.  Just couldn't ever find the time or get into it.  Anyways, take a peek at my first design!!!!  I just used photos I already had of the kids on file. 

Ugh....cranky pants is getting really upset so I better get off this computer!!! 



CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!!!!!

Oh you poor thing, that sucks. Hope you get better soon. It is so not easy taking care of a baby (a sick one at that!) when you can't even take care of yourself. I'll say a prayer for you tonight.

Wow, Morgan IS doing really well without the 2am feeding. The first night I did that with Charlie she woke up every hour. But like I said, by the third night they just learn that it's not worth it to wake up if no food will be given. Good job, Mis!

When will we have our first bible study discussion?

Melanie said...

I hope all of you get to feeling better... I love your scarp designs... Where are you doing yours at? I know there is a site online called Scrapblog I think....

Get well soon!!!

stay strong with Morgan... Remember, she's training you just as much as you are training her.

Me likey the scrapbooking design. WARNING - it's very addicting. But, as you have found - the digital stuff gives you immediate satisfaction whereas the paper stuff takes longer and costs a fortune.

Feel better, mama.

That digital scrapbooking looks very hard. I can't imagine doing a page like that! It turned out great, Misty. I have had the paper scrap supplies for years, but haven't worked on it for the last 2. I did for 12 years and need to start back up.

I hope ya'll feel better soon. I know that is very miserable!

Hey Misty,

good for you and Morgan! Its hard and we waited until Caleb was nine months to skip the mid of night feeding. Best thing we ever did for ourselves, and he is a great sleeper to this day! Now we have a peanut who sleeps in the bed with us....totally my fault-too tired to put her back in bed after I feed her at 2 and we fall asleep together until 5.
I am now officially blogging again after a hiatus. I'm not sure how you have managed to work/momof2/clean/eat...its tough : )
