Feeling Better!

Hey everyone! We are slowly, but surely getting better! Wednesday was a pretty bad day. It seemed like me and Addi got worse, and to top it off Tuesday night, Addi didn't sleep hardly at all. So...Wednesday was an adventure! I was a zombie. Josh can attest to that! When he came home, he asked me several times if I was okay, because I think he had been trying to talk to me, but I was just in a daze. I took a nap after dinner while he and Addi watched TV. I slept for 3 hours and it was wonderful! We have been working in shifts at night. Last night, I took the midnight to 5 a.m. shift. It went pretty good, Addi slept pretty good till about 4:30, then woke up crying and couldn't get comfortable. So Josh took over from there. Apparently she slept really good for him and we all got to sleep in till 9:30! Much needed! I felt a lot better today. And I think Addi did too. Josh got us on an antibiotic and I think it's helping a lot. :)

Oh and Cassie came over and helped us today! We had a great time hanging out with her and she made us the most amazing corn chowder EVER! I am going to ask her for the recipe and post it, because you need it in your life. It was such good comfort food! Thank you Cassie!

Here are some pics that I've taken with my phone. I haven't had my camera, and haven't really had to energy to grab it and take a picture, so sorry for the bad quality! Haha!

At the hospital on Sunday.

Sunday night, she was sooo not happy being in the bath!

Monday, not too sick to pull all her clothes out!

We've been watching LOTS of Disney movies, haha! My new fav is Ratatouille!

Sleepy girl!

This is from today, she played a lot, definitely starting to feel better!

She also started climbing in her toy basket today. Cracks me up!

Hope y'all had a great day!

Hi everyone! We've been a little MIA around here lately. Addi is pretty sick still and now me and Josh are sick. Boo. On Sunday we took her to the E.R. and she was diagnosed with croup. It's basically a upper respiratory virus, so that means no cure. They gave her a steroid shot to open up her airways a little, but they first tried to give her the steroids in liquid form. Ummm....yeah. The nurse didn't tell me until she got in the room with the medicine that 1/2 the kids that get this down throw it up, and the other half can't even swallow it because it tastes so bad. Not good odds! Haha! So we struggled to get a couple of drops down Addi before she started gagging and then just projectile vomited all over me. The nurse was SHOCKED with how much throw up there was and how far it went! And I would like to think it takes a lot to shock a pediatric nurse! Anyways, we went home and basically we have just been giving her motrin and tylenol to keep her fever down. Sunday night was HORRIBLE. She woke up every 30 minutes and never got a good stretch of sleep. Poor thing! On Monday she was sooo fussy and clingy, I just felt so bad for her. She wanted me, and only me, to hold her for the whole day. I was pretty exhausted come Monday night! Thankfully, my dad went and got a cool mist humidifier to put in her room, and she slept all night on Monday. I woke her up at 5 because she felt kinda warm, she was NOT happy with me when I woke her!
Today has been better. Lila came and helped me clean and disinfect and organize all of Addi's new toys! We really appreciate it! Addi is feeling a little better, she definitely perked up quite a bit! I hope by Friday she is all better.

Hope y'all are having a great week!

It's My Party

We had a great first birthday party!!! There was a big crowd, we think there was about 50 people that showed up! Thank you so much to everyone who came, you made Addi's party so special!! Our big girl must have partied a little too hard because we had to make a trip to the emergency room this morning. :( Addi was running a 103 fever this morning and had a horrible cough. They diagnosed her with croup, gave her a steroid shot and we got to go home. She's been pretty pitiful today! She wants to be held by me constantly, I don't mind one bit, she's my sickly little cuddlebug! Anyways, so she hasn't had a fever the rest of today, we've been giving Tylenol and Motrin. Hopefully, she will get better fast, because it's so hard seeing your baby sick!!!

Happy Birthday Addi!!!

Happy Birthday baby girl! You have brought SO much joy into our lives and we love you SO much. You are growing so much everyday, slow down!!! It's hard to believe you are already a year old. They always say time goes by so fast, but you never really understand until you have a child. You are such a happy and friendly little girl and I just can't express how much you mean to me and your daddy. We love you precious angel girl.

Here are just a few pics from Addi's "birth-day". A lot of my family came in and helped me get the house ready for tomorrow and Josh's sister is staying with us too. Addi had a big day today and she was pretty worn out tonight! We watched her birthing videos tonight and just marveled at how little she was, how calm she was, etc. Haha! So much fun.

And from last year...

Hope y'all had a great day!
