Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone
This week has been one of the most challenging weeks of my mommy life. Sophia had another rough day. I am praying that tomorrow she starts to turn the corner and is able to laugh and play. My heart can't take much more!

My Doctor works only two days a week and to see her you have to book at least 3-4 weeks in advance.
This does not work when you have a baby!
I put on my "tough mom" act.
I told them that I needed to see a Doctor pronto and that I could not, would not bring her to the horrific walk in clinic again.
Wouldn't you know it they booked me in with another Doctor right away!
I have to use my "tough mom" act more often!!
The Doctor we saw was great.
Sophia has a bacteria infection.
She is now on antibiotics.
She has an earache, swollen soar throat, runny/stuffed nose oh and we can't forget swollen irritated eyes!!
My poor baby!!!
I am confident she is going to start feeling better soon now that she has started antibiotics.
I knew something was wrong when she was getting worse not better.
She is now snoring away cozy and safe in her room with a humidifier and gentle spa music.
Thanks for all the support and listening to me mope! I feel much better today.
Can't wait to post about happy things with happy pictures!

Before having Sophia I would have guessed that I would be super mom when my child was sick.
This is not the case.
I get so upset seeing her sick that I just want to curl up in the corner in the fetal position.
I don't know how mothers and fathers cope when their child is seriously ill.
I can't even imagine the pain. I hope to never imagine.
I am trying to be the best for Sophia. I know I am doing the best I can.
She has pink eye in both eyes now and a cold that won't quit.
She has barely eaten in 3 days. She is miserable.
Eye drops are sheer torture for her and for me. They should be outlawed.
She woke up from her nap today and wouldn't open her eyes she was in so much pain.
I think my heart broke in a million pieces.
I need my mommy.
Why do we live where no grandparents live??

Visiting my sister and nephew was fabulous!! I miss them already!
Sam is the funniest, giggliest, smartest little boy ever! I forget that he is just two...actually he will be two in a couple days! He is so smart and I am amazed how much he knows and does. He taught his little cousin lots of fun tricks and they had a blast together!!
Sam loves to bake, dance, play with play dough, do crafts, play trains, make forts, go swimming, oh and we can't forget he loves to watch the Backyardigans and Toopy and Binoo Binoo Binooo (as he calls it).
Here are the two cousins sharing in some fun activities together!
Playing a duet!
sharing a snack!
aquadoodling it up!
having a ride in the bucket!
sharing a yogurt drink!
my pretty girl!
playing a tune with auntie Gina!
playing in the fort!
Drawing with some WASHABLE markers! Genius!
Did I mention it was cold out?
Here is Sophia dressed up like the little boy from A Christmas Story!
We can't wait to see them again! Preferably in the summer!!
