Oh boy has this week been rough! First, Evelyn got sick! She has had the worst sounding cough and snot filled everything! The poor thing could barely eat because she couldn't breath through all the mucus! She coughs so hard she gags and throws up!! Poor baby! We took her in because I was afraid it was something bad but her doctor assures us that it's just a cold and nothing too serious! Good and bad! Good that it's nothing serious but bad because there just isn't much we can do to help her! We have the humidifier running 24/7, we are sucking as much snot out as we can, rubbing baby Vick's on her feet and chest, letting her sit in the steamy bathroom, everything! Nothing seems to work very well! She has had it for a week now so hopefully she will be getting better soon! She's hit a rough patch! We took her in to her doctor last week because she was screaming and wouldn't eat. I tried everything! She had been really fussy for a while and screaming and we couldn't figure it out so we took her in. He said it sounded like a little bit of Acid Reflux or True Colic! GREAT! The good thing about that though is that it almost always goes away at 3 months and she will be 3 months next week. So we are really hoping to get some relief! She is also WAY off her sleep schedule and doesn't sleep much at night at all! Which makes for very tired parents! Which brings me to the next rough patch! I got sick! It's hard taking care of your sick baby when you aren't feeling so hot yourself! Jarom stayed home on Monday to take care of the baby so I could sleep and hopefully get over whatever I had! I still have the cough and runny nose but no more headache or ear ache, so that's good! THEN Jarom wakes up in the night with a HORRIBLE tooth ache! AGH! He went to the Dentist today and got TWO root canals!!! Poor thing!!! So this is the second day this week that he has stayed home from work! Nice for me and Evelyn because we love having him home with us but not so good for our bank account! And the poor guy is in so much pain! It's sad! So we are looking forward to next week and hoping that it's a little better than this week! On a positive note, we are still in love and love our baby to pieces! :) Always good to be positive right?! Also, enjoy this picture overload of our cute Evelyn!
