It’s been awhile, huh?
What started with a pink(ish) eye for Cora turned into a cold, which turned into a fever, which then turned into an ear infection, which then turned into croup.
Hearing a baby cough with her entire body and being paranoid about her breathing is not a fun way to spend the night, but so far so good and she appears to be getting better. I am so thankful for medications like antibiotics and breathing treatments and ibuprofen.
I am also thankful that she has been in a pretty decent mood with this whole thing and absolutely loves the extra time in the steam shower with her sister.
I am thankful that Dan’s work schedule (very temporarily) changed! It is no secret that I am not the biggest fan of Dan working 12 hour shifts and every other weekend. So, of course I was elated when he came home and told me he was working 8 hour days Monday to Friday for the next few weeks! It has been great having him here to help with, well, everything that we have to do when we get home.
I am thankful for how great I feel after “detoxing” for 10 days. I use quotes because it doesn’t even really feel like a detox, I get to eat so many yummy foods. Well, except when I couldn’t eat soft pretzels at the super bowl party we went to. I felt that for sure.
I am thankful for Danielle taking Ina to a “solar system” class yesterday. It seemed like she had a lot of fun and she liked her teacher.
Speaking of classes, Ina did even better at swim school last night. She only need an extra kiss and hug from Dan to be convinced to head into the water.
I am thankful for Pinterest for inspiring me to be extra cheesey for Valentine’s Day.
Here’s to a healthier end to the week! <3
