Last night Baby B was awakened at 3 AM when she coughed really ugly. It was one of those painful coughs. Poor baby! After calming her down and getting her settled in our bed, checking her temperature and giving her some baby pain medicine. She fell asleep. But soon after that she woke up again. After about an hour of her softly crying in my arms as I held her close and scratched her head, she fell asleep for what was left of the night.
I hoped she would feel better by the morning. But I was wrong. She woke up this morning the same. So as we watched her cartoons and while the older two monkeys, E and A, were at school, she seemed fine. That is until the medicine wore off and she would look at me with those sad, sick little eyes. My little Baby B just wasn't her usual self. Most of the day before she napped she just wanted to be held until she dozed off. Those at the only times I get to hold her while she sleeps. Normally she would walk into our room and go straight to her crib when it was nap time. But then again, I did read somewhere that your own immune system helps strengthen their system. So they says cuddling your children while they're sick really helps. And who can resist that anyway! I know I can't. There are times that I want a hug and she'll run away laughing. She is such a silly baby. Now she is sleeping and probably dreaming about our little chickies, Blondie and Joe.
Now, for a little update on those two feathered creatures. They are doing just fine. Baby B loves watching them in the cage and hearing them peep. She even said 'Bird' so very clearly this morning. She says little words here and there but that one was just so clear.
Today was a pretty rough day, with Baby B being sick and all. As a mother, seeing my kids sick or in pain just hurts me. Every time any of the kids are sick I wish I could just take their sickness from them. I would rather feel pain than have them feel it. But that is just not the way it works. Unfortunately kids get sick. I blame this crazy up and down weather we have been having. One day it'll be hot and sunny, then the next cloudy and cold. Where is Spring? I need sunshine and warm Spring air. I need long maxi dresses and flip-flops. I saw enough of the cold, gloomy days and welcome the warm ones.
Soon I will start working on some upcoming Spring and Easter crafts and treats. Some will be family traditions that I have done since I was a little girl and others will be Pinterest inspired newbies. After all Easter is April 5th! And I already know time is going to fly by and it'll be here before you know it. But no worries I will keep you all updated on what is to come here at the Inn. But for now I hope you have a good night and a better tomorrow.
