Under the weather. Very under the weather.

Our valentines and the big birthday party preperations have all been put on hold until my small daughterie is done being under the weather. We are in the middle of our 5th full day of dealing with a very naughty flu bug that has made itself quite at home in Annabelle’s little tummy. Add a bunch of teeth that are trying to make an appearance and you have one very miserable baby and one very distraught Mommy.

We have been singing lots of songs and reading lots of books and rocking and cuddling…When she wants one of us to sing she’ll crawl over to us and start, for lack of a better word, humming, "bye….bye…bye" to remind us it’s time for a song. Rock-a-bye-baby is her current favorite. It’s so sweet. She’s a little song-bird and will often hum along…And singing seems to be a great comfort to her right now, so we’ve been doing a lot of it, as you can imagine.

On Friday, David felt so bad seeing his baby in such a sad and pitiful little state, that he brought a bouquet of red tulips home from work for her…It thrilled my heart of course that he would do such a thoughtful thing, but then he is always doing thoughtful things because he loves us, and because he is a wonderful, wonderful guy! He came down with it on Sat but is back to work today and feeling fine, thankfully. 😦 So far the sickie bugs haven’t gotten to me. We’ll see how long that keeps up.

I am hopeful that we’ll soon be on our way back to healthy. But sooner rather than later, would be nice.

  1. Poor baby! I hope she feels better very soon so she can celebrate her big birthday turning 1!

  2. Oh, that is so not fun.  Everyone I know has it, it seems.  I\’ve been fortunate not to get it either.  Lilla is getting some more teeth again though too and between that and the ear infections the poor thing has just not been feeling herself.  Getting her to eat has been a struggle lately, more than usual that is, and I think the tooth thing is the reason.  No fun!
    Anyway, I hope Annabelle feels better real soon!
    Take care,

  3. Oh no!  I hope that you all start to feel better in a hurry.  The sickies deffinetly don\’t make for a good birthday or valentines day!  How sweet your David is.  How wonderful are the men that make us feel so cherished.  I will be praying for you!  God bless and lots of hugs!

  4. Well goodness! i hope you both wake up to a sweet morning.
    love and hugs to you.

  5. Oh no! We had that nasty little bug around here for a few days during New Years. It is no fun. Hope she recovers soon so the birthday plans can get back on track!
    Have a great day!

  6. What a week! I hope she gets feeling better real soon! It\’s so hard to watch them when they are sick. To have your precious baby not only sick, but also teething?! I will definitely be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. I hope things improve today!
