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!)
