3 weeks and counting...

Seriously the kids have been sick for 3 weeks and don't seem to be getting any better. The cold has now moved into Ethan's chest so he's been coughing the last few days. Both of them have still been congested, and both of their noses are still running like a faucet. Gracelyn has not been able to sleep in her crib for weeks now because she is so congested and can't sleep on her belly (yes I know, they aren't supposed to sleep on their bellies but it's the only way she sleeps good) so she's been sleeping with me in the extra bed in our room.

It's now 3:30 am and Ethan is up...he was crying and crying so I went and got him....poor baby is just miserable with this cough and cold. On the couch he goes, watching Imagination Movers and letting the Motrin kick in. This is pretty much our routine when he is up in the night not feeling well. Usually once the show is over he is ready to go back to bed and the Motrin seems to have kicked in which helps. He most likely has a molar coming in too so I think that's why he is up crying. Poor baby.

We just had them both at the doctor and he said it's viral and just has to run it's course. Ugh. The course has been almost a month, just crazy. So, please pray my babies start feeling better...I know their are people who have really sick kids so the common cold is nothing to complain about...and I am not trying to complain...just wanting them to feel better.

Gracelyn had her follow up appointment with the skin doctor yesterday. Her little spot hasn't changed and in fact he said that it looks like it's already on it's way to going away because it's starting to develop some whiteness around the spot. He set me up another appointment in 6 months (she will be almost 1 at that point, how crazy!) but he said if it still looks the same I can just cancel the appointment. He doesn't think I will need it and that the spot will go away quicker than it does with most kids so that is good news and I'm very thankful it's nothing serious.

Speaking of our sweet girl, she is now a roly poly:) She's been rolling from back to stomach for weeks but hadn't figured out stomach to back until yesterday. Now that she has it down she is rolling all over the place...across the room and everything...can she seriously be that old already?? Before we know it she'll be crawling....and then it will be time for another baby ;) (Yes, that is a wink!)

Anyhow, just thought I would blog since I am up at 3:30 and have already seen this episode of Imagination Movers about 100 times:)

Much love to all,
Momma Keri
