Sick Baby

Sweetness has her first fever related virus. Took her to the pedi today and he thought it was hand, foot and mouth but couldn’t confirm. Regardless, she is miserable! I’ve never seen her so unhappy and un-herself. She is clingy and whiny and up all hours of the night in pain. Her 12 month molars are making their presence which isn’t helping matters.

Sigh.

Well hopefully she’ll be feeling better by the weekend. She’s lucky and so am I b/c she’s basically been in excellent health so we can deal with this nasty virus and move on! It is hard to see your little ones in pain though. Such a helpless feeling as a parent to not be able to take away your little ones hurts.

She was so stinkin’ adorable in the pediatricians office though. He was asking me about her eating habits in the last few days and I was saying that she hasn’t eaten much but her Daddy was able to feed her a good bit of dinner last night. All of a sudden I see her signing the word for “food”. She totally understood what the dr and I were talking about and knew to sign for food! Srsly, can you stand it? I mean, she blew me away when she did that. They understand SO much more than we give them credit for. Well than I give her credit for! Go Sweetness. I guess this means Mommy has to watch her potty mouth 🙂

I suppose it’s good she’s getting her virus out of the way b/c next weekend is her big first birthday bash! Hooray! And boo!! Still can’t believe my baby is going to be one. Just have to live in the moment.

Here is a recent pic of her playing in her pool.
