Well, this has been a bad week for BG2. She caught a cold and the poor baby has been coughing and throwing up left and right. It could be a combination of The Hubbi getting sick or the babysitter, but either way, someone got my baby sick!
I’ve been trying my best to manage this and luckily it didn’t seem too bad because she only had a slight fever one night and she hasn’t been too cranky for the most part. Yes, she was clingy and whiney, as anyone would be, especially a baby, which is why I’ve been scarce online. I’d say the worse thing is that she’s not eating too well, often throwing up or not eating as much, but she’s still peeing and pooping normally and she’s still active, so I’m hoping she’s managing. She’s coughing a lot, of course, and the stuffy/runny nose has been rampant the last couple of days. The poor girl hates it when I try to get the mucus from her sore nose, but I keep saying to myself that she needs it to breathe and drink milk, so we’ve both just got to deal for a bit.
Thankfully, she’s still quite active, her new favorite activity being pulling all the DVDs from the shelves so that our living room looks like a bomb hit it. Nowadays we just leave it all there because she’ll just pull them down again anyways if we try to clean up. She also won’t let me out of her sight, or her grasp, and I can’t help but feel bad for the girl, so I give in and hold her all day. While it’s not good for my productivity, I do love cuddling with her.
Surprisingly, I’ve remained kind of sickness-free. Sometimes I think I’m sick, like I’ll sneeze a lot or have a runny nose, but that’s typical for me since I have year-round allergies that come and go. I haven’t felt weak or congested and I’ve been fortifying myself with a lot of Vitamin C, so despite being around all these sick people, I’m good (knock on wood). I mean, I gotta stay strong for the little one, she’s quite a handful, even when she’s not sick!
