This Mom Needs a Time Out

or just a sick day, but I have better luck getting 5 minutes alone.

Our house has a case of the crud. It started Wednesday when Miss L came home coughing. When the sun set her fever set in, which she ran until Sunday. On Sunday I started getting sick and yesterday was Mr. B's turn. We are both running a fever off and on along with some nasty coughs, headaches and soar throats. Fun stuff let me tell you.

To make things even better, little man has not let me lay him down for more than 5 minutes in the last 24 hours. He has been coughing and sneezing a little today but no fever. It probably doesn't help that all last night he laid on me while I sweated out a fever, plus I am coughing all over him. He finished eating not too long ago and was laying on my shoulder. As I coughed and coughed and coughed he didn't even flench. After a few minutes I went and layed him down in his bed. Of course within 2 minutes he was awake.

little s has a fever today too.

I stripped the girls beds down today so that I could wash some of the germs away. Around 5:30 I went to go and move them over to the dryer. I came back up to see Miss L run for the couch and little s holding the end of the bouncy seat straight up in the air. Poor guy was hanging upside down in his chair. Not to mention that it was moved halfway across the living room facing the other direction. By this point I actually had it with them. This Momma doesn't parent to well when she's sick to begin with. I sent them to bed, the beds with no sheets. After I had cooled down a little, little s started to wake up. I got her up, tried to give her some Tylenol and made her bed. Then did the same for Miss L. I was really feeling bad because tonight was suppose to be out first tooth fairy night. Thank goodness she woke up enough to go get it and put it under her pillow.

Miss L is going back to school tomorrow. She hasn't had a fever since Sunday night, but is still coughing a lot. The poor child needs to get out of this house for her sake and my sanity. She is quite the little instigator that can play things off pretty innocently.

Miss L Lost Her 1st Tooth Today

Let's hope the tooth fairy remembers to make a stop at our house tonight!

Just One Reason That I Love Fall

Once the weather starts to cool off and that chill hits the air, this little canister finds its way from the back of my cabinet to an easily accessible spot on my counter.
Really though, who has a canister specifically for instant hot chocolate? Yep, that would be me. I sure can't pass up steaming hot chocolate (made with milk of course) on a cold day or evening or just when the mood strikes. Do you share my love for hot chocolate?
In some other news, did you know this precious girl turned 2 1/2 yesterday. I can't believe she has been here for so long. I wish that I only had a fourth of her energy. This is my wild child indeed.
And just because I know everyone loves pictures of adorable baby boys, here's one for you to swoon over. I just love those lips and chubby cheeks and soft wispy hair and blue eyes and silky soft skin and baby smell. Oh wait, you can't see all that.

Little Man - 6 weeks

I had great intentions of doing this at 1 month, but just like his 1 month pics, I am running 2 weeks behind.

Weight: 10 lbs 7 ozs

Size 1 diapers

0-3 month clothes (I actually packed up newborn clothes that he out grew last night :( I really wanted to cry.)

He has been on zantac since 3 days old for reflux but it is helping a ton. At 5 days old he rolled over from his tummy to his back and has several times since then. But only when he is mad or hungry. Don't believe me, here is proof.

I have yet to see a real smile, but I am hoping it comes any day. That little grin in his sleep is absolutely adorable so I can't wait to see those eyes light up with it.

Little man is also a great sleeper. He only gets up once during the night. I think he would sleep 22 hours a day if it wasn't for 2 big sisters and a paci falling out.

I am considering using Dr. Sear's alternative vaccine schedule. I am interested in any input that you may have if you have used this or another schedule that spreads vaccines out a little more. You can post a comment or email me at laurenlpopp(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thanks in advance!

Too Excited...

Someone is a little too excited about deer season this year. Can't say I share the same enthusiasm.
