Sick.

All three of us are sick. Riley being the sickest:( Poor girl has lost her voice, so that when she cries no sound comes out. All you see is her face scrunch up and her open her mouth as if she is going to scream. Its partly funny but partly really sad. Leif has had the sore throat, headache and runny nose. Poor guy has been working everyday this week, although he feels so out of it. And I have been fighting it. Because well, I'm mommy and wife and if I get sick who will take care of daddy and baby? I think being sick while the rest of the family is sick just sucks. Its the worst thing in the world. You want to rest and not get out of bed but you have to. Dishes have to be washed, clothes have to be folded, babies need to get fed. All three of us have been sleeping together with the humidifier on. Its like when Riley was a newborn:) Baby has to go back to her own crib though as soon as she's better!

Thankfully my husband is such a great man. He has every other Friday off (I love that!) and instead of sleeping himself, he made sure I rested. I had been up the last two nights with Riley. I love him. And thankfully Riley has been handling being sick like a champ. She only fussed the first day, and after that has been her happy self. Sure she has no voice, has a runny nose and a gross cough but she doesn't care. Maybe its because of the extra attention? But really God has given Leif and I such a good girl. She's so calm about everything. It makes going out really easy on Leif and I. And makes being a parent super easy, haha. Unless its feeding time. Riley gets pissed if she's not fed when and where she wants. :) I'm so happy that night time feedings are almost non existent now!

So while we're all under the weather, things aren't really so bad. We're doing well and all of us are getting the rest we need. Just pray that Riley gets her little voice back because mommy and daddy miss it! And I'm sure she does too:) And pray that Leif and I are 101% better soon!


Even though she was sick she let mommy take a million pictures:)

I hope you are all feeling better, especially Riley! I can't even imagine moving (even a short distance) with a baby and being sick. No fun!

Sorry to hear that you were sick, I hope that you are feeling better. Margaret want about doing some writing, or online courses, while you are looking after Riley.
Look forward to more entries.

Awwwww I just want to nibble on those juicy cheeks. She is beautiful. I understand all to well what you are going through with all the sickies. We are finally getting through the brunt of our episode too. My 14 month old lost his voice too. It was so cute and so sad all in one.

Good for you and your hubby laying out a plan to pay off debt. Much luck and success in this journey.
