Well, hello there, Mr. Sun. This is actually a picture I took for my photography class during the 2 hours the sun has been out this past weekend. It's been way blah-gloom-doom weather wise. So, here's to more sun.
This morning was a parenting first. A little back story- this week Declan has been screaming throughout the night. Yesterday morning (after Declan was up the majority of the night) I decided to call his pedi so we can get his ears checked. An appointment was made for that afternoon. In an unfortunate twist, he started throwing up and having diarrhea. My poor little muchkin. He was given a strong antibiotic shot for his badly infected ear and we were given the crackers/pedia.lite instructions for the stomach bug. In the evening he seemed tired but like he was feeling better. He slept great. Thank goodness.
Fast forward to this morning. I peeked in the nursery before work and my husband was sitting in the rocker with Declan. He was concerned because he couldn't really wake him up. In comes crazy mom...turning on bright lights, taking temperature, freaking out. The pedi said to get him in the car and get him there immediately. Turns out that Declan's blood sugar was way too low. Very VERY scary morning.
Tonight, he's holding down food. He's drinking Pedia.lite like it's going out of style and running around screaming and smiling like the little crazy man he is. We are so very thankful he's on the mend and hope tomorrow renders the same. Now, I'm off to pray that the open mouth kisses tonight don't send me hanging over the toilet soon. Ha! Just kidding. Happy to kiss my baby all day every day. (Ask my husband- the snot kisses don't even get turned away!)
Now, if we can just get some sunshine (and warmer weather), that would be grand.
