Hi All -
It has been awhile since I last posted. It is good to catch up on how everyone is doing. Sounds like we are all very busy!
We had a really nice week in Mexico with Hendricks in February. He did really good on the 4 hour plane trip. He LOVED it there. Every morning he would crawl (yep, still not walking!
) over to his stroller, climb in it, and say "bye bye". He couldn't wait to get outside. It was so fun to be someplace warm, swim every day, and just be out of the house/mall/etc. (Yes, MN winters can make you feel like a cooped up chicken)
Beyond that, the last month has been tough. Hendricks has had 2 ear infections/colds, 2 cases of pink eye, 4 molars coming through, and the latest is Croup. I thought it was "just" bronchitis but turned out to be a bit more serious. He was really having a hard time breathing at night. Scary! DH and I have been sick off and on too, so pretty much we have just been one crabby bunch.
With being so sick, Hendricks's sleep has gotten really screwed up at night. He wakes up all the time now and half the time we have to resettle him. He also wants his bottle all day long, even though he hasn't had a daytime bottle since 12 months. He just keeps whining for his "ba ba" and when we tell him it "bottle is bye bye" he FREAKS out. Total tantrum. Screaming, wailing, arms flailing, legs kicking. It is hilarious, yet heartbreaking (and frustrating!).
Sorry for the less than cheery posting... Most days are wonderfully terrific and I can't get enough of my little love bug H. And, some days are just purely exhausting. But, I know you all probably feel that way too some days
Hope you are all well!
