Catching Up

So I've been trying to catch up on my blogging! I have read a few posts and caught back up (I hope). It's amazing how much time I lose in a day just being a mom. Prior to mommy hood I was all about the internet, the scrapping, and blogging. Now I spend hours lying on a blanket on the ground letting my child eat my face (I have no idea why he loves this, but he only does it to me). He is babbling away... So far I've heard him say "ma and ba," but he says them really well. He also does real well at pulling himself up on to his knees, while holding something. He then proceeds to, for lack of a better term, "hump" the air. It is so funny to watch. I blame his dad for that one.

He is officially six months old, and he is so sick today. It's been miserable for us all. At about 5 this morning I woke up and he was feeling warm, next to me. I woke Trey up and he told me he was probably just hot from my body heat, so we all just went back to sleep. At about 9 a.m. I woke up to get him out of his crib, and feed him, and this time he was burning up. I took his temperature and it was 101.9. So I freaked, I called Trey and told him to come home so we could go to the emergency room. I then called my doctor who told me I could come in at 10:15. After we hung up I started crying, because I knew I should have gotten up when he felt warm, and taken him to the ER. I started thinking about meningitis, and all kinds of things of that nature. I'm a little neurotic, if you haven't guessed by now.

We get to the doctor, and my child is not deathly ill. He has a slight cold, sore throat, and a fever. He's also teething. He has already gotten his 2 bottom teeth, and it wasn't as traumatic as I heard, but this time was different. We have pretty much spent all day rocking him, holding him, and trying to get him to sleep (he's so tired). He is finally asleep, and I am typing this as fast as I can (just in case he wakes up)!

Well that was the first time I had to deal with a sick kid as a mommy, and it sucked! Thanks to all you mommies out there!

(Sorry for all the grammatical errors, in a rush!)


  1. Awww I remember those days...when my two were sick. It's such a relief when they're better! So much harder when they're babies because they can't tell you where it hurts. Of course when they're older you have to decipher if they're just trying to get out of going to school :). Hope you smiled with that. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope Liam's feeling better soon. You'll need to relax then too. Oh and I hope to do cards, CD scrapbooks, scrapbooks, etc for a craft show.

  2. OH! Poor girl! I remember those days well. Teething baby's are the worst...and they fever from it often.
    Hang in there! You'll do just fine.
    Cold wash cloth, tylenol and some chew toys.....snicker!

  3. So sorry your baby is sick :-(
    Thanks so much for the nice comment on my lo!

  4. I hope your little guy feels better!

  5. Hopefully he'll be back to norm soon. Those days of decisions... "er or no er?" are definitely tough. My little brother/wife had their first baby this year and they took him to the dr. at 2 weeks because they thought he had an ingrown toenail! I had to say that was a first for me to hear! I told my brother I don't think his nails even had time to grow!

  6. Hi, I know how it could be when those little ones get sick. I hope little Liam is feeling better and I know what you mean about getting on his knees and the air thing, lol, they do make you laugh don't they?
