Marriage & Motherhood Monday

And we're back to regularly scheduled programming!
As amazing as the 30-day challenge was, I missed my normal blogging schedule!  I hope you all had amazing Thanksgivings!
Ours was... uneventful!  We had Thanksgiving at my parents house and kept it small because lil A wasn't feeling all that well.  (Oh, I should mention he had his first week in daycare! no surprise he got his first cold)  Well as the night went on he began to get a fever so we started to closely monitor him.  That next morning he was coughing pretty bad and the wheezing that the doctors had noticed earlier that week wasn't going away.  So off to the ER we went.  1 X-ray, 4 cotton swab probes and 3 hours later... Lil A was diagnosed with a "bad cold" and sent home with Infant's advil and instructions to rest and continue his albuterol breathing treatments.  Poor guy had a 102 fever the whole he spent a lot of time in the tub cooling down.  He never really fussed... just wasn't himself though.
Happy to say he's doing much better these days.  Still coughs a little and the runny nose is drying up, but boy... that cold was intense!!  I don't think there's anything worse than having a sick baby...and not really knowing how to provide the right comfort.  All we could do was hold him and rock him to sleep. :(

I missed my smiling lil man!

Now we patiently wait for Christmas...and for lil A to start crawling!!
