Long busy day...

Again, I'm exhausted.

The baby barely slept last night. She has a runny nose AGAIN and a cough, plus, I'm sure a couple more molars are trying to break through. SALIVA EVERYWHERE! Poor kid. Poor mommy! I think we were up for 2 or 3 hours straight and then she would sleep in 10 min to 1 hour stretches. You could hear it in her nose.

She finally had a good stretch of sleep from about 530-730 (I think that's what time it was). My hubby took my oldest to breakfast so I could sleep. Then I had to scurry and get ready for Baby Boot Camp which I thought started at 930 but realized it starts at 915 and the last 2 sessions I've been late! When I got there I was unfolding my big jogging stroller and had my thumb right in the joint and smash...big ole' cut on my thumb and it was numb for 30 minutes. I thought I might have broke it, it hurt so bad. It's still sore but I can move it so I'm sure it's no big deal.

The baby had a hard time breathing during her nap so I held her for half of it and I slept for about 30 minutes which was enough to give me a little energy. I began cleaning out my summer clothes and unpacking winter....then the baby woke up! There was a mountain of clothes on my bed.

I took the opportunity to load my truck with the things I wanted to donate while she was running around. I played with her a little bit and then headed off to the place we decided to take all this stuff.

I got back and my mom came by to watch the baby so I could finish the bedroom. By 7:30 it was clear my child was overtired and feeling pretty icky. I gave her some Tylenol Cold and Cough. Last time it really helped her sleep awhile and dried up her nose but after she woke up she was WIRED! SO....I'm going to sleep now hoping I can get some rest before the night really starts!

My hubby is coming home. He worked late tonight. I can't wait till he gets here!

Hooray and Good Night!

Oh yeah, I am planning on posting more details about our Marriage Tune-Up from this weekend. There were some wonderful things I learned and I want to share. It might be a few days until I get my house closer to where I want it but I will do it!

Ok, really, Good Night now.

When one of our kids is sick, the entire house almost stops! Those poor babies sure depend on us and it is such a blessing. They won't need us in that way for very long. I packed my duaghter's bottles yesterday. She will be one on Decmebr 22nd but is now using the sippy cup entirely. It makes me sad. I will truly be sad when when have our third baby someday and I pack the bottles away for that one. We all love it when they become a little more independent but it make me sad.

I hate it when they are sick. I just want to make it all go away for them, sometimes I feel helpless. Hopefully this will pass soon. I can't figure out where she got it from...who knows...oh well.
