I haven't written or read anything in a month. I've been busy, distracted, overwhelmed, sick, tired, in pain, out of town, enjoying the weather, cursing the weather, and just in a general funk. I'll explain in another entry...later. But, happy days are here again with warm weather and sunny days. I even got to pull out my old maternity sundresses.
I hope I haven't lost too many readers and I really need to catch up on reading what other blogs I can. All the other responsibilities in my life have overwhelmed me lately and blogging just stopped being very important in the midst of everything else. Too much a-goin' on.
And now, I have a sick toddler. This is his first sickness with a high fever. Mommy hasn't handled it so well on the inside. He has had a 101 degree fever for two days and it kills me to see him moving so slowly and sadly when I am used to him running up the walls and swinging from the ceiling fans.
The doctor thinks it is another bad reaction to a vaccine (he had his polio vaccine yesterday morning - the first was a bad reaction to the DTaP shot when he was 4 months old), in addition to a good ole' fashioned respiratory something or other. The doctor said such a high fever is not a normal reaction to the polio vaccine. So, now I spend a good portion of my day fighting to get him to take his antibiotics, his allergy steroid, his Tylenol and his Motrin. I think I'm losing. He is one determined toddler.
So, here are just a few recent pictures of my baby in his healthier days. May they return again soon. Like tomorrow! Have a great Easter weekend everyone!
This was a bad honey mustard incident which I like to think I have learned my lesson from: Max is not ready for his own bowl of dipping sauce. It just ends up in his hair. But, boy, is he having fun!
