Poor Little Eva

Wednesday morning Eva woke up with a cough. By Thursday afternoon her nose was running non-stop and she was running a fever. Motrin became her friend. She was still sleeping well through the night and was just a little crankier during the day. Friday night she was beside her self. She was up every 45 min through the night. Her nose running into her mouth was driving her NUTS. She would sit up crying, spit out her passy, and wave her hand in front of her nose. She did not really want me to wipe it, but settled for that over it dripping down her face. Chris is gone for the weekend, so she spent the night in bed with me. She tossed and turned all night, and woke up with a fever of 102. It was off to the clinic after the girls woke up Sat. morning. She has a double ear infection. She endured a lot of firsts this weekend..first fever, first ear infection, and first antibiotics. She has been relatively healthy, besides a cold here and there, but the fever did her in. She stopped running a fever last night around dinner time. She was exhausted when she went to bed, and it looked like it was going to be another long night. She was up once an hour from 8:00pm-2:00am. At 2:00 I brought her into bed with me, and she has not moved or made a peep since.

So why I am up at 6:00am on the computer you ask???? Good question. I woke up at 5:15, after three hours of uninterrupted sleep, wide awake. I laid in bed tossing and turning, until an hour later I gave in to no sleep and grabbed the lap top. I sit in the dark typing, looking up baby boy names, reading blogs, checking online for great deals on baby boy clothes, and NOT sleeping. A nap will be in my future today, I am sure, but as for now I sit quietly, listening to the sweet sound of Eva breathing peacefully next to me, thankful that she is feeling better and sleeping well.

Grrrr...sounds exactly like the bug we all just got over...NO FUN! There's nothing worse than seeing such a little one miserable; I hope she is feeling better!

Running after the heart of the Father. Seeking His face in All things. Walking His will out in my life. These are the desires of my heart. Along the way I am a wife and mom who wants to capture memories that will last a life time.
