It's a family sickness

Last Thursday Gabbie came down with a heinous cold, and was out of day care until Tuesday of this week. As much as it's hard to see my baby sick, it's also hard to deal with my baby when she's sick because she is DIFFICULT. Thursday and Friday nights she refused to sleep in her crib for even a minute. She still is having a hard time nursing and taking a bottle because of her stuffy nose.

It got somewhat easier to deal with the crabby, sick baby when she started sleeping through the night in her own bed. Then she did what is possibly the cutest thing she's ever done. I know she's not referring to me specifically, but she has been saying "ma-ma-ma-ma-ma" continuously since Tuesday night.

I think she's starting to feel better. She seems to have boundless energy since yesterday morning, and has been a smiling, laughing fool. Just in time for both Aaron and I to come down with her crud.

Oh, poor sick baby! I'm glad she's feeling better though and -- OMG -- sleeping through the night in her own bed! That is big news, congratulations! Sorry you guys came down with it, though. Being sick when you're a parent is the worst, isn't it, because you don't have time to just take a break and recover. I hope you both feel better soon!

Andrew does the "ma-ma-ma" thing, too. Oh, how I love that.
